Strigoi Ghoul King

Though deformed and reduced by time, they remain savage warriors and masters of the dead.

The pallid creatures known as Ghoul Kings are in fact once-proud Strigoi Vampires forced into a troglodytic existence. Though all Strigoi descend from the same ancient lineage of Ushoran, they have devolved to become something far fouler and more hate-filled than their brethren. The Ghoul Kings spend their days creeping through the hidden places of the world, but under cover of night, they will wreak their vengeance at the head of a shambling army of Undead. At times, powerful Strigoi Ghoul Kings raise vast armies around themselves and push south in a desperate attempt to recreate the kingdom they lost. So far, their advance has always been halted by the warmongering tribes of Greenskins blocking the way to the Badlands, or by disciplined armies of the Tomb Kings that stride out from the desert. Yet across the Old World, the minions of the Ghoul Kings have been sighted ever more frequently. Some say the ancient brethren of the Strigoi are uniting under one leader and massing great armies of degenerate beasts in their cavernous lairs. If this is true, no creature - living or dead - is truly safe from their wrath.

Abilities

  • Blood Lust
    Vampires have long had a savage and unstoppable bloodlust. They will continue to slaughter until the foe has either been turned to Undeath or lies dead at their feet.
  • The Hunger
    As the Vampires rip apart their victims they feast on the blood that spills forth – gaining in strength and lost stamina.
  • Regeneration
    There are beings and creatures that can mend bone and knit flesh at an incredible rate. A mighty boon, but one stunted by fire.
  • Crumbling
    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.
  • Disintegrating
    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 leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
  • Encourage
    This unit provides a Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
  • Undead
    The unit is Undead (does not rout, immune to terror, becomes unstable when attrition when moving through territory not owned by the Undead.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Spellcaster
    This unit can cast spells.
  • Poison Attacks
    The poisonous attacks of this unit weaken the target's speed and damage, whilst reducing its vigour.
  • Armour-Piercing
    The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
