A squad of Hell-Scourges

The Hell-Scourge is a Daemon Knight of those Knight Households that have been corrupted down the millennia by Chaos and are wholly dedicated to the Pleasure God Slaanesh.

The crews of these Daemon Engines have long since died but their souls live on as daemons, floating within the shells of their war machines. The Knights themselves have also mutated as a result of their exposure to Warp energies, sprouting claws, tails and other horrendous weapons.


Hell-Scourges are one of the largest patterns of Slaaneshi Daemon Knights. As living machines in the service of the Dark Prince of Chaos, they have crushed countless opponents in the last ten millennia, screeching deafening cries across the battlefield. They are the perfect predators, hunters who mercilessly run down their quarry with the bounding strides of their elegant, powerful legs. The Hell-Scourges attack without warning. As one appears, the enemy turn their weapons on its blurred form, only to see it disappear. At that moment, others attack from all sides, mowing through armour and flesh with their massive Castigator Cannons.

Hell-Scourges possess a certain pack instinct and are in constant telepathic communication with each other. As such, they make exceptionally well coordinated assaults, out-flanking their enemies with ease. This telepathic contact seems to encompass all Hell-Scourges present on the battlefield, or perhaps even further. This grantsHell-Scourge detachments exceptional flexibility on the battlefield.

Powers and Abilities

The Daemon Knights of Slaanesh are surrounded by a glittering wall of energy. This is a result of the Warp-interface which keeps the daemonic spirit within them in the material universe. This shifting, swirling aura is called the Glamour of Slaanesh and makes the Daemon Knights very hard to accurately target.

As the Glamour of Slaanesh is an interface with the immaterial universe of Warpspace it also provides a certain amount of protection from attacks that use the power of the Warp, such as Vortex Missiles and psychic powers.
