Total War: Warhammer III Fiends of Slaanesh Unit Spotlight

Fiends of Slaanesh Unit Spotlight

Creative Assembly have released a new trailer for Total War: Warhammer III, this time with a Fiends of Slaanesh unit spotlight.

The Fiends of Slaanesh are fast, twisted abominations that have been around in Warhammer for a very long time. They distract opponents with a haze of pungent, hallucinogenic musk, putting their victims into a stupor before cutting them down with bladed limbs, barbed scorpion-like tails, and poisoned tongues.

This fan-favorite unit received some delightfully disturbing new sculpts for both Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 several years back, which looks to be the inspiration for their Total War: Warhammer III models.

You can find the Fiends of Slaanesh unit spotlight below:

Creative Assembly have been focusing a lot on Slaanesh and Nurgle lately after their initial reveal trailer. You can find introductions for both of these Chaos armies here and here, alongside two separate battle trailers.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

Far beyond the world and its petty wars there exists a dimension of pure, malevolent magic: The Realm of Chaos. It is a terrible place, incomprehensible to the mortal mind. It whispers promises of power, but to behold it is to be seduced by it. To relinquish your soul to it. To become it.

The four Ruinous Powers rule over this place, ever seeking to slip their bonds and engulf the world in a tide of daemonic corruption. Nurgle, the plague god; Slaanesh, the lord of excess; Tzeentch, the changer of ways; and Khorne, the god of blood and slaughter.

On the border between the worlds, two mighty kingdoms stand sentinel: the stern warriors of Kislev and the vast empire of Grand Cathay. But each is beset by its own trials, and now both have cause to cross the threshold and send their armies into the Realm of Chaos.

The world stands on a precipice. A single push will plunge it into cataclysm.

And there is one who schemes to achieve just that, an ancient figure who desires nothing less than to wield supreme power. But to succeed, he will need a champion…

The coming conflict will engulf all. Will you conquer your daemons? Or command them?

Total War: Warhammer III releases February 17th for Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (via the Epic Games Store, and Steam).
