Of all the evil forces in the realms, the Hedonites of Slaanesh take the most pleasure in the carnage they wreak…
Slaanesh may be imprisoned – but, with this battletome, his powers are yours to master. This 96-page hardback battletome is your complete guide to the armies of the Dark Prince. You’ll discover dark lore that sheds light on Slaanesh – the Chaos God of excess and pleasure – and his dreaded hosts. From the relentless seekers to usurping pretenders, this book brings some of the most sinister corners of the Mortal Realms to life in fantastic detail, with stunning art, new lore and tantalising hints of what the future holds for the Dark Prince. Meanwhile, a number of warscroll battalions, three sets of allegiance abilities, magical spells, command traits, artefacts and more allow you to build deadly Slaanesh armies made up of daemons and mortals alike. What’s more, the book contains painting tips and different colour schemes to inspire your collection, as well as bespoke missions and Path to Glory rules that are perfect for organising your first battles with Slaanesh’s hosts.

This Limited Edition features a bespoke, soft-touch cover, gilt edges and a ribbon page marker, and is perfect for dedicated Slaanesh fans – but hurry! With only 900 copies available, this edition won’t be around for long…
A Keeper of Secrets is a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh, a consummate warrior and spellmaster of the Dark Prince’s hosts. Their four powerful limbs move languidly as they slink forwards – only to explode into lethal motion when their prey is in reach.
The Keeper of Secrets is the most powerful and dangerous of Slaanesh’s servants – graceful, fast, and utterly deadly. On the battlefield, these towering combatants can scythe through infantry formations and heavy armour alike with a flurry of attacks. Each is also a sorcerer capable of unleashing foul magics that can allure their foes or utterly destroy them and an accomplished commander that’ll empower nearby Slaanesh units. You’ll even be able to use it in both Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000.
This kit builds one Keeper of Secrets, and features a number of options for customisation, including a choice of head, weapons and impaling claws, allowing you to field multiples of this monster while ensuring they look distinct. What’s more, this kit can alternatively be used to build Daemon hero Shalaxi Helbane.
This set is supplied in 51 plastic components, and comes with 1x 100mm round base.
Syll Lewdtongue has inspired thousands of warlords to acts of tyranny and misrule, but since uniting their powers with the megalomaniacal Daemon monarch Esske, the Herald of Slaanesh has become a force of conquest like no other.
Combine the might of a Daemon Prince and the cunning of a Herald of Slaanesh, and you get Syll’Esske – a terrifying tag-team skilled at carving a bloody path across the battlefields of Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar alike. Capable of piling in and attacking twice, Syll’Esske is fantastic as a front-line combatant, as well as being armed with an arsenal of support abilities that’ll empower the Daemons they fight alongside.
This kit is supplied in 20 plastic components, and includes 1 x 50mm round base.
The Contorted Epitome writhes across the battlefield on lashing metallic tentacles, twisting under the control of its Daemonette attendants to reflect its enemy’s darkest desires and deepest fears.
The Contorted Epitome is a deadly Slaanesh spellcaster that spells doom for any enemies that dare come close! Felling foes with magical spells in Warhammer Age of Sigmar and psychic powers in Warhammer 40,000, this magical mirror possess a number of tricksy abilities, negating some of your enemy’s most dangerous attacks as well as hypnotising nearby units.
This kit is supplied in 25 plastic components, and is supplied with 1x 75mm oval base.
The Masque once entertained Slaanesh, but then displeased him, and was exiled. Since then the Herald has been cursed to dance endlessly. Those drawn into this endless performance are doomed to a swift and spectacular death.
Few warriors can keep up with the lightning-swift attacks of The Masque! This combat-focused character excels at downing slower foes, capable of crossing vast distances rapidly and striking where they’re most effective. Whether you’re stalking your prey across the war-torn battlefields of the 41st Millennium or striking out in the Mortal Realms, you’ll find The Masque perfect for picking off enemy heroes and support units.
This kit is supplied in 10 plastic components, including a choice of masks for the Staff of Masks. It is supplied with a 32mm round base.
Maestros of discordance, Infernal Enrapturesses fill the battlefield with screams of pain and unrestrained elation. They are virtuosos among Slaanesh’s infernal choir, towards whom the Dark Prince’s daemonic legions are drawn.
The Infernal Enrapturess is a key support character for a Slaanesh army. While they’re capable of shredding foes at range with sonic blasts, their strength lies in a suite of useful abilities, whether you’re using them in Warhammer 40,000 or Warhammer Age of Sigmar. You’ll find Daemons of Slaanesh easier to summon, while enemy psykers and sorcerers will find casting spells or using their powers much more dangerous.
This kit builds one Infernal Enrapturess, and is supplied in 24 plastic components. It comes with a 60mm oval base.
Horrific nightmares given bestial shape, Fiends of Slaanesh emit a harsh, trilling call as they race towards their prey. A cloud of dream-inducing musk hangs thick around the Fiends, reducing their foes to a stupor, and sapping them of their will to fight.
Fiends of Slaanesh are deadly combatants who excel at cutting down larger foes. Whether they’re slaying monsters in Warhammer Age of Sigmar or slicing up heavy infantry in Warhammer 40,000, these beasties are great for any Slaanesh or Daemons army. They’ll play havoc with your opponent’s Psykers and Wizards, too!
This kit builds 3 Fiends of Slaanesh, and includes options to turn one of them into a Blissbringer. It is supplied in 63 plastic components, and comes with 3 x 75mm oval bases.
A Fane of Slaanesh is a focus of worship wrought in precious metal. Around it are laid offerings to the Dark Prince, but in truth it is one of his most exalted greater daemons that peers through. Those whose offerings meet with the creature’s approval are rewarded highly – but those who offend are justly punished.
Available at no matched play points to all Slaanesh armies in Warhammer Age of Sigmar, the Fane of Slaanesh is a key tactical lynchpin in your army. By sacrificing their life force or their artefact of power, your Heroes can empower themselves, making your Keepers of Secrets, Heralds or any other champions you choose even deadlier. What’s more, summoning Daemons near the Fane of Slaanesh will reward you with depravity points, allowing you to bring even more onto the battlefield.
This kit is supplied in 10 plastic components.
The endless spells of the Hedonites of Slaanesh are sinister sorceries said to have been summoned from the Palace of Slaanesh itself. Possessed of a vindictive sentience and an appetite for torture, woe betide those who try and resist their siren lure…
These Slaanesh Endless Spells offer diverse and powerful tactical options to your Slaanesh army, designed to slay your foes and offer helpful boons to your own units. This set contains all three Slaanesh Endless Spells:
– The Wheels of Excruciation – a flock of lacerating blades that excel at shredding lightly armoured enemies.
– The Mesmerising Mirror – a sinister looking glass that can snare units and slike Heroes dead.
– The Dreadful Visage – a horrifying mask that flays foes, strikes terror into their hearts and emboldens Slaanesh units.
This set is supplied in 18 plastic components and with 2x 90mm oval bases.
