Khorrok's Manrippers (Bestigors)
Description[edit | edit source]
The strongest and meanest of the Beastmen footsoldiers are known as Bestigors. Their size and ferocity means they carve a privileged position within the warherd, enforcing their superiority over the Gors and Ungors with random acts of excessive violence. In battle, Bestigors form a solid, armoured mass of muscle and iron that charges forward with a terrifying momentum. They seek out the elite of the enemy army - who inherently challenge their dominant status - then wield their huge axes like executioner's blades, hewing the foe limb from limb and trampling their broken bodies into the mud beneath their unshod hooves.
Abilities[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.
- ↑ Armoured: Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
- ↑ 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.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
These units are similar to the Beastslayers of Bastonne (Foot Squires) on the Brettonia roster. Among the high quality anti-armor infantry the Beastmen can bring, this is the anti-large version. Keep in reserve as you only have one of them. Use them selectively to engage against dangerous monsters or mounted lords.
