Tyranthikos

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Tyranthikos, also known as the Dominators, were an elite cadre of line breakers and assault troops within the Iron Warriors Legion during the Great Crusade. Clad in Terminator Armour, each was a veteran of many bloody sieges. Each Grand Battalion of the Iron Warriors had a unit of Tyranthikos, and Perturabo himself used them as bodyguards in battle until their replacement by the Iron Circle.[1b]

The title itself seems to have its origins on Olympia. The twelve lords of Olympia were themselves referred to as the Tyranthikos[1a]
