Vargheists

A Vampire reduced and twisted to savagery, Vargheists swoop in from above and rip battle lines to pieces.

Vargheists are the darkness in a Vampire's soul made manifest. They are towering winged humanoids, each several times the size of a man. Though the Vargheists once walked and talked as lords amongst the chattel, these curse-born Vampires have devolved into ravenous predators desperate for the taste of blood. They prowl the battlefield in packs, ready to pounce upon the least sign of weakness and tear a hole in the enemy ranks with crimson claw and bloody fang.

Abilities

Vargheists
  • Some warriors care not for their own personal safety and so work themselves into a whirlwind of destruction and mindless violence!
  • 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.
