A Gauntlet of Fire is a Necron weapon that takes the form of an armoured glove and vambrace, whose length crackles and flows with viridian flame. The gauntlet’s mechanisms are controlled by a series of sub-mechadermal filaments, allowing the wielder a level of control over the gauntlet as fine as that over his own hand. A Gauntlet of Fire is capable of firing a great column of green flame, with similar effects to an Imperial Flamer, or can be used in close combat for fiery attacks that are more likely to hit and harm the foe, as well as set them alight for a time. Gauntlets of Fire are weapons found exclusively as part of the armouries of Necron royals, such as Necron Overlords, Necron Lords and Necron Destroyer Lords.
A unique variant of the Gauntlet of Fire was crafted by the Cryptek Harri'apt the Conflagrator, and is known as the Gauntlet of the Conflagrator. This gauntlet uses interdimensional energy exchangers to open a microscopic conduit to the raging heart of a star. The superheated plasmic flame that erupts through this hole is forced down a cone of hyperdense gravitons that spew the energy forth in a blazing split-second of unstoppable fury.
