About this deal

As the warring armies close upon one another and vicious firefights erupt, the Codex lays out strategies for swiftly seizing the initiative and combining versatility with firepower.While this combat doctrine is active, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of every Rapid Fire and Assault weapon that models in this unit are equipped with by 1. Vanguard Librarians are trained in the psychic arts of obscuration and illusion. They weave impenetrable cloaks of Warp energy around their Battle-Brothers, conjure haunting visions to distract and terrify their foes, and ease the Vanguard formations' passage through enemy territory. The Obscuration Discipline is available to Vanguard Librarians in addition to whatever other disciplines they may have learned within their Chapter. The central pillar of most Librariums houses its oldest available copy of the Codex Astartes, held in a stasis-plinth or protected by holo-reflection. Games Workshop: Blood Angels Librarian in Terminator Armour (Posted 2014) (Last accessed 4 September 2019) Librarians are psychically-charged Astartes who are trained to use their abilities on the field of battle, as both weapons and as precognitive tools. The Librarians use a device known as a Psychic Hood to suppress their enemies' use of psychic powers and to augment their own.

Notes on the painting

Null Zone - The psyker unleashes the full might of his mind to cast down his target's defences, both technological and mystical, rendering them vulnerable to the retribution of the Adeptus Astartes.

In the heart of the Librarius there is also a smaller inner chamber, carefully sealed and protected. This is where the Chapter stores its most sacred artefacts, trophies, and proscribed texts, many of which are taken from the corpses of Heretics and aliens -- unfit or too dangerous for the eyes of any but the Chief Librarian.

Aggressor • Desolation Squad • Eradicator • Hellblaster • Vanguard Eliminator • Vanguard Suppressor • Infernus Squad • Firestrike Servo-turret • Hammerfall Bunker White Scars - The Zadyin Arga or " Stormseers" of the White Scars perform the same functions as other Chapters' cadre of Librarians, though the Stormseers emerge from the deeply-ingrained mystical traditions of the tribal shamans and holy men who rode the plains of Chogoris with their Primarch Jaghatai Khan before the coming of the Emperor to Mundus Planus. Since the time before their Chapter's inception, when they were the shamans who first named Jaghatai Khan the Great Khan of the nomadic tribes, the Storm Seers have been called upon to continue to induct Neophytes and newly elevated Khans of their Chapter. The other responsibilities of the Storm Seer include teaching Aspirants the core beliefs of their Chapter. They firmly believe it is the manifest duty of the White Scars to destroy the enemies of the Imperium, awaiting the day that that Emperor will rise again, signaling the return of their lost Primarch and the beginning of the next Great Crusade to unify all of humanity. The Storm Seers believe that their powers are connected to the animistic spirits of the land and the air, and that as long as these natural forces fight alongside them, the White Scars will always be victorious. These elemental, animistic beliefs and the highly stylized Force Staff used by Storm Seers tie these warrior-mystics to their shamanistic past on the steppes of Mundus Planus. Each Chapter has a Chief Librarian, the strongest and wisest psyker in the entire Chapter. A psychically-powerful Astartes often becomes the Chief Librarian by virtue of experience or by demonstrating exceptional self-control and willpower, both vital traits for an Imperial psyker. Below are named some of the most well-known Chief Librarians of the Space Marine Chapters of the Imperium of Man.

Some Librarians go to battle in Tactical Dreadnought Armour -- better known as Terminator Armour -- which is painted and decorated in the same manner as their fellows clad in normal Power Armour, and also includes a Psychic Hood. Because of the sheer size of Terminator Armour, those suits worn by Librarians are modified to carry special Warp-sensitive crystals (similar to those fixed within Psychic Hoods) inside the finger tips and palm, so that a Librarian can still use his powers while encased within the protective suit. However, a Librarian in Terminator Armour may wish to simply use his Force Staff to manage and exert his power, and wield a ranged weapon in his free hand.Hellblaster Squad • Eradicator Squad • Aggressor Squad • Eliminator Squad • Suppressor Squad • Desolation Squad • Infernus Squad • Firestrike Servo-turret • Hammerfall Bunker The Chapter's most potent battlefield psykers are the epistolaries, each a hardened veteran of many wars. The Chapter's psychic communications and the Librarius' records are maintained by the codiciers and the lexicani (sing. lexicanium), respectively. These ranks and responsibilities may vary from Chapter to Chapter.

Understandably then, to even become a Librarian, a Space Marine must be an exceptionally talented psyker and undergo years of gruelling training within the depths of their Chapter's fortress-monastery. This training continues throughout their lives, and Librarians are constantly testing their minds and bodies to reinforce the strength and breadth of their willpower. Therefore, just as a Chapter's Apothecaries test the genetic suitability of potential Space Marines, the existing Librarians are responsible for assessing all potential recruits to the Chapter for psychic ability. The Emperor invited the advocates of both sides to attend the conclave and at the Council on Nikaea they argued each other to a standstill. It was only the intervention of a contingent of Space Marine Librarians from the other Legions besides the Thousand Sons that presented a compromise. If the Tactical Doctrine was active for your army during the previous battle round, you can change it so that the Assault Doctrine is now active. White Dwarf 227 (US), "Chapter Approved: Dark Angels - Ezekiel, Grand Master of Librarians", pp. 73-80Umojen - Umojen was the Chief Librarian of the Salamanders Legion during the Great Crusade. He voted in favor of maintaining a Legion Librarius during the Council of Nikaea. Later, he became one of Malcador the Sigillite's Knights-Errant.
