Glaivewraith Stalkers are one of the coolest new Nighthaunt units available from Games Workshop for Warhammer Age of Sigmar and as the backstory states:
“A Glaivewraith Stalker is an unstoppable force. Its long blade always points at the beating heart of its intended victim….”
This holds true in gameplay. The Glaivewraith Stalkers are truly an unstoppable force in Warhammer Age of Sigmar and once you add a drummer, get a unit of at least ten models, and back them up with a Guardian of Souls or Crawlocke the Jailor/Spirit Torment to stack an extra attack. Having at least 1 drummer in the unit allows you to retreat and charge in the same turn and charging grants +1 to their hit rolls bringing their 4+ down to a 3+. The craziness really starts if you are able to use 2 different abilities to stack and extra attack on their profile. Suddenly, you are throwing forty six sided dice hitting on a 3+ on the charge. As long as you remember one basic rule, Always Be Charging with Glaivewraith Stalkers they will perform well in just about every situation consistantly throwing tons of wounds against enemy units.
Glaivewraith Stalkers can be picked up in three different boxes from Games Workshop. The Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Nighthaunt + Paint Set comes with 4 models, Citadel Easy-To-Build Nighthaunt Glaivewraith Stalkers Warhammer Age of Sigmar also comes with 4 models, and finally the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soul Wars starter set with five Glaivewraith Stalkers.
No matter which way you pick up some Glaivewraith Stalkers, if you are playing Nighthaunt or any other death army, they are must buy for your collection. As the models themselves have really cool and elegant sculpts, the easy to build kits go together really fast and look amazing. They are amazing in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. And if you can back them up with a boosting hero as mentioned earlier in your lists, they only get better.
