Phantom Titan[3]

The Phantom Titan is the largest of the Eldar Titans, graceful constructs with superior agility and speed compared to other Titans. The pinnacle of Eldar warpcraft each one is constructed around a Wraithbone core, a psychic material which allows the souls of deceased Eldar contained within Spirit Stones to move freely throughout the machine. This gives the Titan a consciousness of its own, which merges with that of the Phantom's crew and help guide them. Some Phantom Titans will have a single Steersman pilot them,[2] while others will instead be guided by twins or triplets,[1] but regardless when their consciousness merges with that of the Titan's they create one sentience able to think, react and move with the speed of an Aspect Warrior. The Titan's crew control their war engine from the head cockpit, giving them a good view from 25 meters above the ground.[2]

The Phantom's primary arm mounts can be fitted with some of the Eldar's largest and deadliest weapons. These include twin Phantom Titan Pulsars, Distortion Cannons or a special Power Glaive known as the Ashuna-Valcry'le. Secondary weapons mounted in its shoulders include Phantom Missile Launchers and either a Pulse Laser or Titan-grade Starcannon. It is also protected by a Titan-grade Holo-Field projected by the large rear fins.[2]

Phantom Titans do not participate in the Eldar's normal warfare operations of raids and surgical strikes, but are instead reserved for when the Craftworld must engage in pitched battle. Only during these desperate times are the Webway portals opened wide enough to allow the Phantom Titans to stride upon the battlefield and wreck terrible destruction upon their foes.[2]
