Crypt Horrors

Monstrous, mutated and savage, a Crypt Horror is devastating against the enemy frontline.

Crypt Horrors are only seen openly in times of war, where they are primarily used as the shock troops of ambitious Strigoi Ghoul Kings. Crypt Ghouls are counted amongst the lowliest of all Vampiric servants; after all, they lack even the common decency to be properly dead. So the sight of pack of Crypt Horrors accompanying a Vampire to battle is evidence of the terrible depths that their master has sunk to in his quest for survival. In order to create a Crypt Horror, a Vampire must open his veins to a Ghoul and allow it to gulp down his precious blood - essentially a pale bastardisation of the Dark Kiss - an act that is reviled by those who count themselves amongst the elite of Sylvanian society. In battle, packs of Crypt Horrors muscle their way towards the front lines, eyes glowing with dire light. They used shattered gravestones, tomb statuary and cemetery railings to smash aside those brave enough to stand before them, but it is their meat-encrusted fangs and talons that are to be avoided at all costs. Even a shallow wound from a Crypt Horror bears enough poisonous rot to kill a horse. Despised by the living and the dead alike, Crypt Horrors are creatures to be truly feared.

Abilities

Crypt Horrors
  • There are beings and creatures that can mend bone and knit flesh at an incredible rate. A mighty boon, but one stunted by fire.
  • The dead do not rest easily in the Old World. Those summoned by Vampires and Necromancers no longer have mortal concerns - they serve only their master's will.
  • The Dark Magic binding has failed. Both flesh and necromantic energy slough off the subjects leaving naught but dust.

Attributes

  • Causes Fear
    This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their [[img:icon_morale]][[/img]]leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
  • Undead
    The unit is Undead (does not rout, immune to terror, becomes unstable when [[img:icon_morale]][[/img]]{{tr:morale}} is low). It will suffer from [[img:icon_attrition]][[/img]]attrition when moving through territory not owned by the Undead.
