A Harlequin's Embrace is a wrist-mounted close combat weapon utilised exclusively by the mysterious Aeldari Harlequins. This weapon boasts similar technology to that found in the Death Spinners carried by Warp Spider Aspect Warriors.
A Harlequin's Embrace is triggered a second before the wearer charges into close combat, and projects a cloud of monofilament wire that quickly contracts around the foe, slicing them to bloody chunks in mere seconds.
