Overlord Rasui the Flesh-seeker
Add to Favorites
Rasui means dream in Ancient Egyptian and Rasui has dreamt for a long time. Above all else the Overlord covets the flesh of lesser beings, to once again feel the warmth of stars. His schemes are many and he has not allowed envy to cloud his judgement. Tirelessly scores of Crypteks work to once again make their master flesh. Their latest line of enquiry has brought them to seek an age old foe, the Eldar. The Eldar can transfer the spirits of their kin into constructs of Wraithbone, would it not therefore be possible to transfer a spirit stone into a construct of flesh? Rasui has taken to the stars to answer this question, but before he left he gouged his own eye out and placed it upon his throne to watch over his crypteks, so that if a break through is made he will know of it. Curiously the scars made by this self mutilation do not heal, perhaps the will of Rasui makes him more mortal than he realises.The madness of Overlord Rasui: The will of Rasui has filtered down into his lesser subjects and as a result there is a higher number of flayed ones amongst his forces. Flayed ones are troop choices.Flesh-seeker: At the beginning of the game make note of an enemy unit Rasui is concealed within. This unit may not consist of models of terminator size or above or any vechicle unit. When this unit first recieves a casuality reveal Rasui and place him anywhere in the unit and roll a d3. Flesh rejection: On a roll of 1 or 2 Rasui bursts from his flesh concealment. Place the large blast template over Rasui, it is resolved at str 6 ap 4. Rasui is not hit. Skin harvest: On the roll of a 3 or 4 the closest unit of flayed ones to Rasui may teleport 12\" towards him. Your face, I want it!: On a roll of a 5 or 6 target one model that Rasui is in base contact with and roll a d6. On the roll of a 5 or 6 that model is instantly destroyed with no saves of any kind allowed. Once the d3 roll has been resolved roll 2d6 and a scatter dice. Place Rasui in this new location.The idea behind Rasui is to be a slighly unhinged fun character who could ruin a HQ retinues day or have fun in an ork mob.
