Overview[edit | edit source]

Rogue Armies are a type of faction that was introduced in the campaign mode of Total War: Warhammer II. All Rogue Armies are minor, non-playable factions.

Rogue armies are warbands of desperate outlaws, and are often comprised of unusual combinations of troops. Rogue armies will appear from time to time, and will eventually seek to establish a permanent presence on the campaign map by colonizing a ruin or assaulting an occupied settlement.

The Tomb Kings and the Vampire Coast both must take on specific Rogue Armies to unlock features or complete campaign objectives.

Unit roster[edit | edit source]

The various different Rogue Armies factions have different unit rosters. This often includes units from several different races. For instance, Vashnaar's Conquest can recruit units from both Dark Elves and Chaos Warriors rosters, while Pirates of the Far Sea can recruit units from The Empire and Bretonnia. See each individual Rogue Armies faction page for details on which units they can recruit.

The Star-Metal Harpoon[edit | edit source]

Additionally, this army will appear and not move from it's location when playing as a Vampire Coast faction, and defeating them will allow you to obtain the Star-Metal Harpoon, which is required for campaign victory.

Verse of the Sea Shanty[edit | edit source]

These armies only appear during a Vampire Coast campaign once you have raised your Infamy high enough. Defeating them will teach you a verse of the Sea Shanty, which is required for campaign victory.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • All Rogue armies use the same background for their crest, but the icons on them vary. Most of these icons were taken from existing minor factions.
  • Rogue Armies start out as roaming hordes. However, if they conquer a settlement they can settle down to become a regular faction that constructs buildings in settlements.
  • The Aye-Aye! Patch introduced new Rogue Pirates which use a blue or teal line in their background instead a red one like regular Rogue Armies.
  • Rogue armies typically appear in sparsely-populated terrain.
  • Rogue armies will typically not be immediately be hostile, but will cause disruption by Raiding lands they move across.
