Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus is launching into the new year with a howl from Jain Zar herself. This week the team at Snowprint Studios will be hosting a live stream with Penny Arcade to launch the Legendary character Jain Zar.
The Aeldari have many aspect warriors from their craftworlds. None are more feared than the Howling Banshees. Aspect Warriors who rival any foe in the galaxy with their rapid strikes and keening battle screams. Descending upon enemies with speed and ferocity, Jain Zar is their Phoenix Lord and most skilled warrior.
Wielding The Silent Death, Jain Zar can deliver the silent death ability at enemies in adjacent locations on the battlefield.
Jain Zar also carries The Blade Of Destruction which can cut through even the most advanced armor.
Jain Zar is the perfect warrior to lead your charge and finish off enemies quickly on the front lines.

Ultramarines – Adeptus Astartes, the war-hardened, armor-clad space marines who defend the Imperium.
Necrons – Awoken from their tombs, these eternal machines bring death to any who oppose them.
Black Legion – Turned to chaos by the dark gods, the Black Legion were once the best of the imperium. Now they are driven by revenge and eternal conflict.
Black Templars – Space Marines on a special mission to purge the galaxy of enemies. Sometimes even the Imperium’s own are considered a threat.
Orks – Bred for war by the old ones. Orks’ great joy is found in combat. Might makes right for these xenos beasts, and no one can stop them.
Death Guard – The servants of the diseased god Nurgle plague the galaxy. With horrific weapons and shambling pox walkers, the galaxy will never be safe.
Adepta Sororitas – The sisterhood of faith brings divine wrath to the battlefield. Miracles can happen…and the Sororitas prove it.
Astra Militarum – The Emperor’s hammer never stops on the battlefield. Using firepower and intelligence to outwit superior foes and bask in victory.
