Blightscab's Plaguepack (Plague Monk Censer Bearers)

Good luck getting close enough to these foul, pestilential creatures to kill them without getting infected!

Only the most insanely devoted of the Plague Monks are given the honour of wielding a plague censer - the deadliest weapon in the Clan Pestilens armoury. A plague censer is a hollow spiked metal ball attached to a length of chain. In an unholy ritual, a Plague Priest reads aloud disturbing and disease-ridden passages from the Book of Woe while a shard of Warpstone is placed inside the cruelly-spiked globe. A ladle's worth of vile contagions is added, poured over the Warpstone itself. Hellish runes glow as the devil's concoction immediately begins a slow bubble, sending tendrils of greenish vapours wafting out from the many holes in the ornate iron orb. Contact with the haze of noxious fumes emitted from a gently swaying censer will cause flesh to erupt into sores and fluid-filled blisters. When swung in the heat of battle, however, the censer emits vast billowing green clouds. Exposure to this plague fog causes horrific damage as lungs instantly fill with virulent fluid and vital organs putrefy. It would take a creature absolutely devoid of common sense to be anywhere near such a weapon, much less wield it in battle. Enter the Plague Monk Censer Bearers...

Abilities

  • Demagoguery
    By demagoguery I mean the ability to enthrall and energise others with the power of rhetoric, in order to protect them from psychological attack.
  • Scurry Away!
    "He who runs away lives to fight another day!" - so the foul, craven adage goes.
  • Strength in Numbers
    Skaven are craven by nature but take courage when in packs of their own kind, where they move slower but enjoy the safety of numbers.
  • Frenzy
    Some warriors care not for their own personal safety and so work themselves into a whirlwind of destruction and mindless violence!

Attributes

  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Plague Censer
    Warpstone dust and vile contagions fill this diabolical censer, exposure to which does horrendous things to bodies and minds alike.
  • Frenzy
    Units with leadership is high.
  • 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.
  • Damage Dealer
    This unit has a strong emphasis on dealing damage. If fighting it, make sure to take it out before it can get into firing or melee range.
