Plague Monk Censer Bearers is a Skaven melee infantry unit in Total War: Warhammer II. Half-mad, swinging their censers violently and damning all those nearby to a pestilent demise.

Description[edit | edit source]

Blightskab's Plaguepack are amongst Clan Septik's most disgusting warriors. Their fur is matted with contagions and their skin is covered with boils and buboes. Blightskab commands his regiment with hacking, phlegm-filled shouts and he is so eager to spread disease in the name of the Horned Rat that he has been known to lead his regiment from the front! The Plaguepack are believed to have been responsible for the outbreak of Bleeding Eyerot that decimated the population of the Empire City of Nuln.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
  • Frenzy: Units with frenzy cause more damage while their Icon stat morale.pngleadership is high.
  • Plague Censer: Warpstone dust and vile contagions fill this diabolical censer, exposure to which does horrendous things to bodies and minds alike.

This Regiment of Renown is very valuable to the Skaven for its ability to make all units around it immune to Fear and Terror. This prevents Skaven units from breaking as easily against terrifying units. They are almost a requirement to any army that focuses on elite Skaven infantry and are often used with Council Guard (Stormvermin-Halberds).
