Brooch of the Great Desert(Enchanted Item)15 points

Inlaid with gold and lapis lazuli, this brooch was first used against the foul necromancy of Nagash, hampering the effectiveness of his dark magic. Each time it is used, its powers are drained, requiring careful incantations from the Liche Priests to restore it to full effect.

One use only. The Brooch of the Great Desert can be used against any enemy spell cast against it, before attempting to dispel. When used, the bearer and any unit they are with gain the Magic Resistance (5) special rules for the remainder of the turn.

Magic Standards

Standard of the Sands(Magic Standard)60 points

Created for the famed general Amenemhetum the Great, this banner summons a raging storm of sand that sweeps over the battlefield. With screaming winds and biting sand assaulting then, the enemies of the Tomb Kings become momentarily disorientated and confused.

Icon of the Sacred Eye(Magic Standard)40 points

The arcane power of this stylised icon of the unblinking eye infuses the unit that carries it within their ranks, making their blows strike true.

The unit carrying the Icon of the Sacred Eye (including any mounts) may re-roll failed rolls To Hit in the first round of close combat.

Mirage Standard(Magic Standard)40 points

Imbued with the curses of a hundred Nehekharan widows, this banner leads the enemies' minds astray, rendering them almost blind to where the unit bearing the banner actually is.
