Post a comment. Saturday, 30 June Mordheim - Beastman Warband. Beastmen are brutish creatures, the Children of Chaos and Old Night.
They roam the great forests of the Old World, and are amongst the most bitter enemies of mankind. The raging power of Chaos has given them a ferocious vitality which makes them shrug off ghastly wounds and carry on fighting regardless of the consequences. Even the Orcs are comparatively vulnerable to damage compared to the awesome vitality of the Beastmen. Beastmen are a crossbreed between men and animals, usually resulting in the horned head of a goat, though many other variations are also known to exist.
The Beastmen are divided into to two distinct breeds: Ungors, who are more numerous, twisted creatures that combine the worst qualities of man and beast, and Gors, a giant breed of Beastmen, a mix between some powerful animal and man. The Ungor are smaller Beastmen, who cannot compete with Gors in strength and power.
Shamans are very special Beastmen and are revered by all Beastmen, for they are the prophets and servants of Chaos Powers. Each warband of Beastmen includes a mix of some Bestigor, Gor warriors and Ungor who are the mainstay of the tribes. Seven great Herdstones stand hidden in the forests surrounding the city of Mordheim. The shards of the meteorite are seen as holy objects, which can be sold to the powerful Beastlords and revered Shamans in exchange for new weapons and services of warriors.
For the tribes of Beastmen the battles fought in Mordheim are part of a great religious war, an effort to bring down the civilization of man which offends the Chaos Gods. After the taint of man has been wiped from the face of the earth then the Beastmen shall inherit. Appearance: Beastmen Gors stand some six-seven feet tall, and their heavily muscled bodies are covered with fur. Ungor are lesser beastmen, no larger than humans, but their tough bodies and vicious tempers easily make them a match to any human warrior.
Beastmen wear little clothing, but often dress in the fur of their defeated rivals. They usually carry the skulls of their vanquished enemies as these are thought to bring good luck. While most Beastmen have dark brown skin and fur, black-furred or even albino Beastmen are not unknown. Beastmen wear heavy armlets and necklaces which serve as armor as well as decoration. Apart from the most primitive clubs and wooden shields, the Beastmen make few weapons.
It is not the nature of Chaos to create, but to destroy. They are massive creatures with an inhuman resistance of pain. Being quadruped grants them great strength and speed whilst their humanoid upper torsos allow them to wield weapons. These beast-centaurs are powerful creatures but are not particularly agile or dexterous. Fearsome and powerful, any Beastman Chief will try to recruit a Minotaur into his warband if possible.

Mordheim – Beastmen Raiders
This is my first post in ModelBrush, but not the last. Now I have more time to devote to my hobbies and therefore I have started to resume some forgotten wargames, such as Battlefleet gothic and Mordheim. First, I have prepared a warband to play a Mordheim campaign in Madrid. Thus, using the Warband rules published in the Mordheim suplement Empire in flames page 67 , I have prepared my warband with crowns. The starter warband has nine figures, including 5 heroes and 4 henchmen. The maximum number of heroes at the beginning of the campaign is mandatory, in my opinion. Unfortunately, they are so expensive!
Beastmen were added to Mordheim during one of the wilderness supplements. They are a hyper-aggressive Warband that packs a lot of punch if properly focused. Similar to Orcs, I am assuming that Beastmen skin gets darker as they grow more powerful. Leaders: The pack is led by a mighty Chieftain based on the old Warhammer Beastlord model.
Mordheim Musings: Short Bows for Beastmen. October 01, Today's installment of Mordheim Musings, a spur-of-the-moment heading which has become a semi-regular column on here, deals with a question that's been on my mind for quite a while, but that I haven't collected my thoughts on until now: should Beastmen Raiders have the option of equipping ungors with shortbows? If you've read my other articles or, let's be honest, any article of this type , I'm sure you know where this is headed, but humour me. This turned out to be a bit deeper than I had first assumed. I know this, not because I was in any way involved in Mordheim or Warhammer then, but because I obsessively pored through and indexed the issues of Town Cryer over my summer holiday.
