Eldar Striking Scorpion Chainsword

A Striking Scorpion's Chainsword

The Scorpion Chainsword is a deadly one-handed melee weapon whose vicious blade is comprised of diamond-toothed edges that mangle and tear flesh. First amongst the ritual weapons used by the Striking Scorpions Shrine, these distinctive chainswords bolster the strength of their users considerably. It bears a resemblance to the Chainswords utilised by the military forces of the Imperium of Man.
