Gorebull is a Beastmen hero unit in the Beastmen Total War: Warhammer downloadable content. Gorebulls do not hesitate, smashing into enemy ranks with overwhelming power.

Description[edit | edit source]

Gors form the great mass of the warherds. Their appearance varies, but all combine bestial features with those of a man. The base form of the Beastmen, and that possessed by the vast majority of the Gors, is the head and legs of a goat and the upper torso of a man, albeit a particularly hairy and malodorous one. They have the savage fangs of wolves with which to tear great chunks of flesh from their foes, and muscular and robust (if flea-ridden) bodies well suited to acting out their primal urges. To face a horde of Gors is to face anarchy and mayhem. Rowdy and undisciplined, they bray, bark, and bawl an unceasing cacophony that fills men's hearts with dread. Nonetheless, Gors are capable of taking to the battlefield in more or less ordered formations, a fact that many an enemy general has failed to understand until it is too late. Roving groups of Gors band into tight units that march beneath banners made from the flayed hides of their foes, while others tear the captured flags of defeated enemies, tattered and smeared with blood and dung. The Gors' raucous, bloodthirsty braying is accompanied by the atonal drones of crude pipes and horns in deliberate mockery of the Empire's proud regimental musicians.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

  • Anti-Large: Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.

Gorebull offers a strong anchor piece to a Beastmen army. He is aggressive and can chop down most things he goes up against. He also provides a couple of small buffs that help make even the trash Beastmen front line stronger. Employing double Gorebull's is a strong goon squad that can make short work if they can corner their target.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

For reasons unknown ever since release, the Gorebull has had a problem with mass. Which means that despite being a large unit he was easily thrown around by other large units (often thrown quite far as well). CA has made a couple of changes to increase his mass over the game's lifetime, but the flying Gorebull remains a meme of the community.
