Revenant Titan

The Revenant Titan is the smallest Eldar Titan, used often as forward scouts for larger Titans or to provide fire support for conventional forces.

Overview

While all Eldar Titans are quick and agile, the Revenant goes far beyond this, with its compact size allowing it to move with a speed and grace that is just plain impossible for the Titans of other races. This maneuverability is enhanced even further by a number of jump jets and gravitic motors that turn its movement into a dance of drifting leaps and gentle floating sweeps across the battlefield. A Revenant can easily leap harsh terrain, unleash its firepower against enemy lines, and then use its blinding speed to retreat to safety before the enemy can react.[1][2]

In addition to their speed and agility, Revenant Titans are also well-armed, making them formidable foes.[1] Their primary armament are a pair of Pulsars, immensely powerful laser weapons, although some are instead armed with Sonic Lances. Secondary armament consists of shoulder-mounted Revenant Missile Launcher, loaded with plasma warheads for defence against infantry. In place of the heavy armor of lesser races' Titans the Revenant is principally protected by an image-distorting Holo-field projected from the Titan's fins which confuse auspexes of all types.[2]

A Revenant Titan is crewed by a single Eldar, known as a Steersman, whose consciousness melds with the spirits contained within the Titan's wraithbone core until they are one. Notably, Revenant Titans are often manned by one of a pair of siblings, with the other of the pair piloting a second. This leads to Revenant Titans often hunting in packs, their actions coordinated by the psychic link formed by their pilots' blood ties. The pair are also refereed to using joint names, with some examples roughly translated as 'Eagles Born of Flame' or 'Guardians at the Gates of Infinity.'[1]
