A Slaanesh Subjugator during the attack on the Imperial Palace during the Horus Heresy

The Slaanesh Subjugator, sometimes simply referred to as the Subjugator, is a large Daemon Engine of Chaos that is completely dedicated to the service of Slaanesh, the Chaos God of pleasure and excess. The Subjugator embodies the essence of Slaanesh; being lithe, incredibly swift, and fully able to move quickly and still use its weapons. When the hordes of Slaanesh attack, the Subjugators will race ahead of the army, galloping towards its foe with its long, powerful legs, the daemonic spirits inside chattering and screaming with the sensations that battle brings. These shrieks turn to howls of elation as the machine's weapons are brought to bear and the foe is destroyed in exquisite agony.

Despite the machine's intimidating size and the awesome power of its weapons that are capable of pinning entire squads down, those brave enough to face it will find that its armour is no better than that of a Space Marine Dreadnought combat walker, ending the Daemon Engine's pleasure far quicker than its possessing spirits desire.


A Subjugator Scout Walker with it's deadly array of weaponry.

A Subjugator is armed with a variety of weapons for both long-range and close combat. The Daemon Engine features two Hellslicer Battle Claws -- one on each side of its chassis -- that can rip apart a foe many times its own size, and also armed with tail and dorsal-mounted Tormentor Cannons. A Tormentor Cannon is a psychically-charged Warp energy cannon that kills a Subjugator's victims with unbearable agony, leaving a trail of charred wrecks and ashen corpses wherever it is fired. A Subjugator is also armed with a set of twin-linked Blastmasters and a single Doom Siren mounted on the machine's front. These are Chaotic Sonic Weapons that kill with the agonising power of extreme sound.
