Avatar of Pain


Some things come from places so dark they don't have names

Appearance: The Avatar of Pain appears as a blood stained giant of a man, standing a frightful 8 feet tall. His pale gore splattered body is thickly muscled with ropey veins and criss crossed with scars and brands. The avatar is clad is dingy white tattered clothing. The avatar's face cannot be seen, ever. It's head is covered with a massive rusted iron great helm. The helm is crafted in a brutally crude fashion, raw iron plates welded together haphazardly. Blood trickles down the avatar's shoulders where the rusted helm bites into its flesh. The Avatar carries a heavy iron melee weapon far larger than it should be able to wield believably. It stinks of spoiled meat and blood, and groans in dull agony.

Power Level: 2

Affinity: Dark/Evil

Innate Abilities:

Immune to non magical weapons, immune to small arms and rifles.

Fear: causes a powerful fear effect in opponents fighting it. To fight the Avatar of pain, a morale/courage check has to be made, unless the attacker has a drastic advantage (tank, mecha, magical armor, etc)

All-Seeing: The Avatar cannot be flanked or surprised in combat, lacking sight, it cannot be hidden from and non magical camoflage is ineffective. Anything less than full cover doesn't affect the accuracy of the Avatar of Pain.

Stability: 10

This summon is very stable once summoned, almost feeding off of the fear of the foes it mercilessly slaughters with its bloody sword or hammer.

Special Abilties:

Power Cleave: The Avatar of Pain can make a power attack that is intended to destroy inanimate objects such as obstructing doors, shields, power armor suits, and load bearing structural members. It will also use this is a coup'de'grace attack. If it does, it regains 2 points of stability.

Rend: Using its off hand, the Avatar of Pain can make a grappling attack. This can be used to disarm a foe, inflict crippling pain and injury to an unarmored target, or rip something apart. This can be pulling a door apart, ripping the skin off of a victim or pulling out a foes heart or guts.

Brutality: This is a favorite ability, but hard to use. Once the Avatar of Pain has subdued or otherwise incapacitated a foe it will exectute them in such a horrendous fashion that units within a certain radius are shocked, stunned and otherwise unable to act, possibly forced to make a morale check to continue fighting or even to hold their ground.


The Avatar of Pain is a melee fighter intended for infantry level combat or to be unleashed by an infiltraitor in a base, lab, or bunker.

Infiltraitor - what a combination of infiltrator and traitor :)

Am I not funny?

Anyways, I'd like more fluff here, even in Warhamster you get more fluff for units! Cpt. Penguin would have them be the vengeful spawn of the Murdered Child, who lies shackled and undead in the rotting carcass of its god-mother, sending out these abominations born of its flesh to hunt the rapist of its parent! Rrrrraaaaagh!

It needs more Rrraaaagh! I'll hold my vote until then.

 I think it is more an Avatar of Gore then Pain.  I think an avatar of pain (of course my own opinion) would not be the bearer of uber-blades ,since, slicing/smashing wounds are not _quite_ at the apex of pain.  For that, something more - methodical- seems appropriate, but that does not seem in line with a table-top wargame.

I assume from EM's comment that this a warhammer unit with warhammer stats and warhammer considerations regarding functions and abilities.  But where is the fun? Where is second dimension?  I am sure some guys could use it, but there is no story, no detail regarding the nature of its power and no hook that makes it any scarier or cooler than its stats and abilities.

Actually it is a prototype unit for a tabletop version of my own CthulhuTech setting. I like the idea of Warhammer but I'm too poor to play it.

I feel ya that is why I play battetech with paper tokens and A&A piece.

In cases where a person has accused another of a crime, but there are no other supporters of the accusation or defenders of the accused, and there is not enough evidence to support one party or the other, the two people involved, or their champions in some cases, must duel in the presence of the local ruler or leader. The loser is assumed to be lying and punished accordingly.
