Everything about him is bent to that one great task of holding back evil.
Volkmar the Grim is the head of the Cult of Sigmar and the most powerful religious leader in the Empire. He is a pious and foreboding man who is utterly devoted to the destruction of Chaos in all its forms. When the Grand Theogonist accompanies an army into battle, he typically rides atop the resplendent War Altar of Sigmar, inspiring the soldiers around him to great acts of heroism as he strikes the followers of Chaos down with powerful blows and words of divine force. Volkmar is a holy terror on the battlefield, a man who fights with the fury of Sigmar himself. It is said that Volkmar's soul was forged of steel and he fights the malign influence of Chaos with every fibre of his being.
This unit has the following mount options
|War Altar of Sigmar||The altar prominently features a noble griffon bearing Ghal Maraz, Sigmar’s hammer and the emblem of Imperial unity and strength.|
|Warhorse||Descended from the wild ponies of Kislev, Imperial warhorses are suited to harsher climates.|
|Barded Warhorse||Smaller than their powerful Bretonnian equivalents, barding protects Imperial warhorses from blows that would otherwise fell these proud beasts.|
|Encourage||This unit provides a leadership bonus to nearby allies. Units within range of both the Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.|
|Hide (forest)||This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.|
Such is the strength of Sigmar's favour that enemies fail to act in the presence of such brilliance.
|Grand Hammer of Sigmar||
The Warrior Priest implores Sigmar to imbue him with a modicum of divine strength, and now his hammer glows bright with power!
|Grand Shield of Faith||
The Warrior Priest’s faith manifests in the form of a shield as hard as castle-forged steel.
A battle prayer that bathes the Warrior Priest in white, holy fire, sears Sigmar’s foes but leaves the supplicant unharmed.
The Warrior Priest passes the blessings of the Heldenhammer to the brave men around him.
A quick invocation of protection to Sigmar or Ulric will bless the implorer with a shield of godly faith, should they prove worthy.
