A Daemonhammer

A Daemonhammer is a type of large, two-handed Imperial warhammer crafted from rare ores and composite materials from humanity's ancient and more technologically advanced past. The shaft of a Daemonhammer is covered in hexagrammic sigils and seals of warding, while its head is emblazoned with the burning sigil of the Inquisition, from which emanates a crackling power field.

Daemonhammers are extremely rare in the Imperium, and their use is granted only to the most trusted and respected Inquisitors of the Ordo Malleus, the Astartes of the Grey Knights, and sometimes to various Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes who have defeated a particularly potent Greater Daemon in combat.

Notable Variants

Nemesis Daemon Hammer

  • Nemesis Daemonhammer - Developed by the Ordo Malleus as the final word in daemonic destruction, the Nemesis Daemon Hammer combines the crushing impact of a more traditional Thunder Hammer with the psychic power of destruction. Few can survive the impact of a Nemesis Daemonhammer wielded by a psyker in service to the Emperor. Nemesis Daemonhammers are extraordinarily rare in the Imperium, and they are usually only found in the hands of Ordo Malleus Inquisitors and the Space Marines of the Grey Knights Chapter.
