Chaos Warhounds (Poison)A well-placed kennel of Warhounds, set loose on the enemy lines, can thread horrific injury amongst the enemy.
In Norsca, wolves and hounds prowl in the flickering shadows of the campfires made by the barbarian tribespeople of the frozen lands. The further north the tribe dwells, the more likely it is that the hounds that follow them will be mutants, their bodies swollen by the energies of Chaos. Brutish and bloodthirsty, Warhounds are natural killers built of muscle and fang that prowl the wilderness in ravening packs. They will even charge a spearwall with total abandon, their only concern the moment when their slobbering jaws sink into juicy, yielding flesh.

- Weak Against Armour
This unit's attack can hardly punch through armour and is thus wasted on heavily armoured enemies.
- Poison Attacks
The poisonous attacks of this unit weaken the target's speed and damage, whilst reducing its vigour.
- Scaly Skin
Scaly skin or hides help to dampen or deflect the damage caused by missile weapons, increasing this unit's Missile Resistance.
