Warhammer Community revealed some of the artifacts that can be found inside the Lumineth Realm-lords Battletome. If you’re on the fence about starting these guys, check out some of their unique weapons and trinkets you can throw on Heroes.
GW Showcases Great Lumineth Realm-lords Artifacts
Okay this artifact does a little bit of everything. You get +1 damage, a 6+++ FNP and a 5+ ignore spell bonus. This is something you’ll want to put on a dude that is a one-man battleplan. A Spirit of the Mountian would be perfect for this as he’s an already-tough model at 12 wounds with a 3+ save. But you can make him even tankier and bump his hammer up to 6 flat damage!
This is a 50/50 get out of jail free card. If you’re going to be taking one of a certain kind of Hero (like an Alarith Stone Mage for example), you can throw this on him and have a decent chance of having him escape certain death once per game.
Now this one is gross. An artifact that gives +3 attacks to someone can be devastating. Going back to the Spirit of the Mountain, he’ll be making seven attacks at 5-flat damage with this thing.
Finally, there’s the Phoenix Stone. This is like a bubble effect of the Simulacra Amulet. Although you trade the likelihood of getting back up and dispersing it to all Heroes within 12″ of the bearer. If you’re running a bunch of small guys, this may be a decent option to take. The only problem is that it’s super swingy and the bearer could just die before you get a chance to really use it. This probably won’t ever be your first choice of an artifact.
Overall, the theme of the artifacts that were previewed have been a mix of damage output and survivability in some form. They’re definitely not the worst artifacts we’ve seen come to a faction!
