A Dispersion Shield is a form of defensive shield utilised only by Necron Lychguards, who pair it with a Hyperphase Sword for a different armament from their usual two-handed Warscythe. The phased energy force barriers projected by Dispersion Shields can be used to fend off close combat attacks with ease, including blows from weapons such as Power Fists and Power Weapons that would otherwise smite a lesser foe. Dispersion Shields are also capable of deflecting incoming enemy fire using the advanced force generators built into the device. If there are any nearby enemy units, Lychguards will often aim the shield so as to deflect this firepower into them instead, an action which can cause grievous casualties.
