A group of Executioners.

The Executioners of Har Ganeth are members of the Cult of Khaine, Lord of Murder. [2a]

Cult of Khaine

In the cult's hierarchy they come after the Witch Elves, brides and priestesses of Khaine. However even a Witch Elf can be punished and sacrificed if she is found wanting.

They are specialists in sacrificing people, be they High Elves, humans, Dwarfs, or otherwise. They usually don't torture their victims but strike them down with a draich, a two-handed weapon, in one swift stroke, maximized for releasing as much blood as possible.

They have never lost their banner in battle and it show Khaine in his aspect as Executioner with the Rune Thalui - which means vengeance or hatred. [1a]

Notable

  • Tullaris: current captain of the Executioners, a most merciless, ruthless and feared leader.

Weapons and Equipment

Draich

A Draich is a two-handed weapon, normally a sword or axe. It is the weapon of choice of the executioners in battle. The word 'Draich' represents the act of execution and the skill of the wielder and doesn't mean a particular type of weapon. The weapon of Tullaris is the magic sword used on the day of the founding of the executioners. Its literal translation is "execution".

  • 4th Edition: Double Handed Axes and Heavy Armour, may have a Magical Standard. [1c]
  • 6th Edition: Driach (Great Weapon) and Light Armour, may have a Magical Standard. May be led by a Driach-master, Musician and Standard Bearer. [2b]

Notes

The ritual armament of the Executioners has been retconned. Formerly armed with two-handed great axes [1b] they currently wield two-handed weapons caleld Driach.[2b]
