A Helstalker with Lord Discordant Rider

Helstalkers are scuttling Daemon Engines that serve as steeds for Lord Discordants, who ride them into battle.

These nefarious Daemon Engines are able to parasitically devour the Motive Force of its mechanical prey be it Imperial or Xenos in origin with their Hypno-Armour Syringes that inject Scrapcode directly into its victim. As it does so, its own metallic frame swells with ingested code and subroutines. The Lord Discordant siphons off the pained spirit of the dying technology. This harvested energy is then used to reinvigorate other Daemon Engines, or is released as beams to infect the systems of other vehicles.[2]

Besides their own parasitic abilities Helstalkers are well-armed for war, with either an autocannon or baleflamer.[1]
