Harbinger of Night
The Harbinger of Night is a title given to the Necron Lord who leads a Shroudweaver War Cell.
Harbingers of Night in the 41st Millennium
The Harbingers of Night have the ability to absorb all light in a certain radius. They darken the skies to create terror in the enemy ranks, with few having the fortitude to stand before them as their power over darkness awakens deep, primeval fears amongst the enemy. Covered by darkness and announced by terror, the Necron Harbinger begins its harvest, the skies only clearing with eventual victory.
Shroudweaver War Cell
This specialized Necron Lord is accompanied by a formation known as Shroudweaver War Cell, composed of at least thirty Necron Warriors, at least fifteen Immortals, and up to three Monoliths (however a Shroudweaver War Cell does not necessarily have to contain even one). This force acts a raiding force, which strikes under the cover of darkness provided by the Herald and reaps a grim tally as they Harvest their foes.1
