URL Copied!

The Hashishin have access to many exotic weapons, poisons, abilities and unique artefacts. The Artefacts of the Creed may be taken by certain models as indicated in the army list. Unless otherwise stated, these are not magic items. A model may not have multiples of the same upgrade, but an upgrade can be taken by more than one model in the army.

Magic Weapons

The Dagger of the Grand Master(Magic Weapon)20 points

This dagger was used by the notorious Hashishin overlord known only as the ‘Grand Master’. It is claimed that he found it in a Khemrian tomb and legend has it that the dagger’s blade cannot be damaged in any way. It was last seen at the assassination of Sheik Jinjamon, in the grand court of Lashiek, but his murderer managed to escape.
