Gor Herd (Shields)

Gors may be rank-and-file beasts, but that does not diminish their ferocity on the battlefield.

Gors form the great mass of the warherds. Their appearance varies, but all combine bestial features with those of a man. The base form of the Beastmen, and that possessed by the vast majority of the Gors, is the head and legs of a goat and the upper torso of a man, albeit a particularly hairy and malodorous one. They have the savage fangs of wolves with which to tear great chunks of flesh from their foes, and muscular and robust (if flea-ridden) bodies well suited to acting out their primal urges. To face a horde of Gors is to face anarchy and mayhem. Rowdy and undisciplined, they bray, bark, and bawl an unceasing cacophony that fills men's hearts with dread. Nonetheless, Gors are capable of taking to the battlefield in more or less ordered formations, a fact that many an enemy general has failed to understand until it is too late. Roving groups of Gors band into tight units that march beneath banners made from the flayed hides of their foes, while others tear the captured flags of defeated enemies, tattered and smeared with blood and dung. The Gors' raucous, bloodthirsty braying is accompanied by the atonal drones of crude pipes and horns in deliberate mockery of the Empire's proud regimental musicians.
