|Games Workshop's Seekers of Slaanesh|
The Hand Maidens appear to be humanoid females, with either sea green hair that undulates like seaweed in the tide, or spines that resemble the dorsal fins of fish. Instead of hands they have crustacean-like forelimbs that can impale or eviscerate a foe with deadly efficiency.
Their steeds are bipedal creatures with both reptilian and ichthyan features. When on land they stalk their prey by 'tasting' its scent with their long, fleshy tongues, then transfix it with their soporific gaze; anyone looking into the limpid pools of their eyes become lost in their depth, unable to act.
Hand Maidens of Dagon No. Encountered: 1-6
Armour Class: 4 Special: spell-like abilities
Hit Dice: 5 Move: 12" (9" swimming)
Attacks: by appendage type HDE/XP: 6/400
The Hand Maiden's appendages resemble either lobster claws or long chitinous blades. Those with claw appendages deal 1d6 damage, and if they have two such claws they may attack with both, making a single attack at +1 bonus to hit. Those with a long chitinous blade appendage may make a single attack that deals 2d6 for damage, choosing the highest single die roll.
Hand Maidens are the beloved of Dagon and are sheltered by his aegis. They are permanently under the influence of Protection from Law, and once per day they may Summon the Drowned, which functions exactly as an Animate Dead spell, calling forth 1d6 zombies - the remains of sailors that the Maidens dragged to the depths and who now serve them in unlife.
Dagonic Steeds No. Encountered 1-6
Armour Class: 7 Special: Tracking, Soporific Gaze
Hit Dice: 3 Move: 18" (18" swimming)
Attacks: Claw HDE/XP: 4/120
The Dagonic Steeds are equally swift on land and in the sea. They can taste the scent of their prey, and so track it. Anyone caught in the gaze of a sea horse must make a Charisma save or lose their action for the turn. They may make a save every turn to attempt to break out of their stupor. Anyone making a successful save can no longer be affected by Soporific Gaze for the rest of the encounter.
