Background[edit | edit source]

The Hung are a nomadic oriental race of hunters and gathers, shorter and squatter than the people of Cathay but otherwise resembling them. The Hung are perhaps the most easternly of all the Northmen tribes, inhabiting the lands of the Chaos Wastes to the north of Cathay and the chilly lands of Naggaroth in the New World. The Hung are considered horsemen par excellence, and they breed tough, small horses on their cold mountain slopes which would survive where larger southern warhorses would starve. They ride these into battle when they attack the more civilized lands to the south, such as the petty yet equally barbaric Kingdoms of the Dark Elves.

Perhaps out of all the people living within the Far North, the people of the Hung are perhaps the most primitive of them all. Even though their brethren in the West have built themselves a selection of settlements and massive fortresses, the people of the Hung can amount themselves no better than primitive hunters and gatherers, with little to no concept of even the barest forms of civilization. Instead, these wandering nomads scour the land in search of plunder and battle to sustain themselves, and such is their reputation that the people of Grand Cathay built the mighty Great Bastion, one of the largest walls ever created, for the sole sake of keeping these barbarians from destroying their kingdom.[1]

The Hung Warband can use their fast moving skirmishers as a distraction for archers, while their armored cavalry attacks the infantry. In combination with Poison Warhounds they can even take on light spear units.
