POINTS 150 + MODELS
In times of great need, such as when a high profile enemy of the Chapter is their target, or when their Chapter's Fortress Monastery is under threat, the members of a Chapter's Librarius may join forces into a single unit, a gathering of psychic might which can bewitch or annihilate the hardiest of foes using their combined powers.
The Librarians will be joined in battle by the Acolytae; Librarians-in-waiting who have manifested psychic powers and been taught in their use, but not yet refined them to levels where they can use them as safely or actively as their tutors. They can still use their more basic powers to good effect; perhaps to heal wounds, sunder their enemies' armour or conjure an inspiring aura.
3-10 Space Marine Librarians (this may include characters such as Varro Tigurius, Sevrin Loth or other Librarians)
1 Command Squad (The Acolytae)
Conclave: All models in the formation form a combined unit. All of the Librarians in the formation lose their Independent Character rule.
Lend Me Your Strength: One or more Librarians may combine their power to cast one of the following Enhanced Psychic Powers.
You must pick one Librarian in the squad as the caster of the power; he is used to measure range and check line of sight.
Only one psychic test is made, using the Ld of the caster; however if the test is failed all models contributing to the power are affected by the Perils of the Warp.
Any models involved will count as using one psychic power each, and the squad may cast enhanced or normal powers as they wish until all Librarians in the squad have either used or contributed to a psychic power. Models which can use multiple powers in a turn can still do this, though they may only contribute to a casting of an enhanced power once each time it is cast.
The list below shows the enhanced powers which can be used and how many Librarians must combine their powers to use it. The powers below only show the changes to the power from the normal version; all other rules remain the same. The models using a Greater Psychic Power do not have to have the normal version of the power; their combined might allows them to perform feats that would normally be beyond their control.

Greater Machine Curse: Causes D3+1 glancing hits.
