Phoenix (Lord) Rising…

As the Psychic Awakening approaches, we’re ramping up the excitement with another part of the Phoenix Rising prophecy and A NEW, PLASTIC PHOENIX LORD! No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you – read on and you’ll find out which Character we’re talking about…

This article was originally published on the Warhammer-community site.

But first! the prophecy continues…

Ylocu Shaie must be fun at parties… In any case, it sounds like the Ynarri have been kicking up something of a storm in their attempts to free the Aeldari from eternal damnation at the hands of Slaanesh. Bringing a god into consciousness from sheer potentiality evidently comes at a cost!

The Ynnari could definitely use a hand from someone with the experience of ages to guide them through these turbulent times – but who could rise to such a challenge?

That’s right – Jain Zar is back and is more incredible than ever! As the Phoenix Lord of the Howling Banshees, Jain Zar is the spiritual mother to all who follow in her path by dedicating themselves to her Warrior Aspect.

Jain Zar’s exquisite new miniature embodies the lethal grace for which she has become renowned, and feared, across the galaxy. As well as sweeping her deadly glaive, the Blade of Destruction, in a decapitating strike, she is poised to whip her right arm around to hurl her legendary triskele, Silent Death. Her feet aren’t even touching the floor, as the miniature is held aloft by her flowing mane!

On the battlefield, Jain Zar fights even more aggressively than before (if such a thing is possible for Khaine’s most prolific blademaiden), swapping her old Disarming Strike ability for a more thoroughly slaughterous replacement, The Storm of Silence…

With this ability at her disposal, simply hurl Jain Zar into the largest enemy units and watch gleefully as she blends her way through them like a bladed whirlwind!

The incredible new miniature of Jain Zar will be on its way soon… as will her nemesis – who could that possibly be? You’ll have to tune in next Monday to find out! Until then, why not pick up a Triumvirate of Ynnead to spearhead your Ynnari warhost in preparation for Jain Zar’s arrival?

    Since she’s still got her big hair, I wonder if the others will still have a big hats. Is she supposed to be the Craftworld answer to hordes?

      Yeah, the hair is even longer, now.

      And as to her being meant to deal with hordes? I don’t think, she’s just a good all around Character model.

      Craftworlds have loads of horde clearing power anyway, IMO. Their basic troops are quite good at it in addition to Reapers, Serpents, etc.

    It seems that way to me too, but then I listen to the FLGPN shows and it’s all Aeldari fliers, so what do I know?

    Not a big fan of the model. Her right arm doesn’t look right, don’t like her mask and her pose.
    Although I recon she’ll be great in a darker colour scheme – black, dark red or blue.

    So does she lose disarming strike completely? That ability is so useful against smash captains, which will just one shot her without it.

      I’d wait to see the entire model profile before jumping to any conclusions =)
