Malagor of the Dark Omen, Khazrak One-Eye and Shaman
The Razorgor is case of nice legs shame about the face really. I will be getting one but doing some green stuff work on the face and then singing Hakuna Matata every time I move it.
I Love the Bestigors, especially the fact that they are now physically bigger than the Gors. I'm liking the minotaurs the more I look at the them, they are growing on me really.
This was posted by Nethraq on the Herdstone. As always I cannot vouch for the Veracity of these rumours.
Ok, just had a quick 5 minute convo with my mate who's had a 5 minute read thorough the new book.
Herds have split sad.gif, both ranked up but ungor get the option to skirmish
Unruly has gone
New rule for "herds"- when in combat take a leadership check.
If passed the unit gets hatred, if you roll insane courage you get hatred and frenzy. Didn't seem to be a downside if you failed.
Bestigor capture standards if they simply win a round of combat, get to add it (and any others they capture) to their combat res.
Minotaurs get frenzy if they win a round of combat, for every round they win they get a cumulative extra attack! Minos can only ever pursue or overrun 1d6 (they can now overrun)
Chariots STILL CORE
Centigor, still special not fast cav. No drunken every turn, instead roll a dice at the beginning of the game. Effects range from +2 I, to -1 movement to something else he couldn't remember.
New unit Harpies
New unit. Some kind of jabberwoky thing. Enemy units in 12" take Ld check, for every number they fail by take a wound no armour. seemed to be 5's across the board. If it takes a wound in combat enemy takes a S5 hit. 275 points.
Think he said about a gorgon thing, mainly 6's.
There was a normal giant, then there was a cyclops giant which was basically a giant with only Ld8, but armed with a stone thrower and every (enemy?) wizard within 24" has to pass a leadership check or not be able to cast spells.
That's all I've got for now.
Hopefully I'll be getting to look myself in the next couple of days so more info to come.
Ravik on the herdstone also posted this.
Got to read it myself as well.
Gorgon ( i think it was) looks like a giant minotaur, and eats people
Cygor is a cyclops giant-gor that gets rerolls to hit against undead, daemons (I think) and things with ward saves. Tragically WS2. Stone Thrower.
Jabbersclyth is the jabberwocky thing. Flying, poison, terror, largetarget, 12" tounge attack, strength 5
Doombulls have D3 impact hits, normal minos have 1 each. Each round of combat won gives minos an extra frenzy attack for that combat (lost if combat ends or you lose a round).
Beastlord allows a reroll on the beastial roll when fighting against humans (Empire and Bretonians) which basically means it's likely the unit will get what is effectively eternal hatred. Something to do with insane courage adding in Frenzy to the unit he's with with that in-combat-roll thing
Great Bray Shaman are T5.
First spell of the lore was something like all friendlys within 6" get to move D6 towards nearest enemy in sight or forward. Not too sure on that one.
There's another that makes the mounts of a unit attack the riders.
2 chariot types, ungor and gor. Ungor one is core, not sure about the gor one, but is pulled by razorgors from what I was told (didn't see that page)
No gargoyles, but we do get harpies.
In response to a question about Ambush Ravik mentioned this.
Ambush yes. Need to confirm who has it and how it works. Pretty sure it was just gors and ungors for it.
I think the bestial roll is for gors and bestigors.
Sadly I didn't get a thorough look at all the stuff, moslty brief glimpses.
The rare choices all looked to be 200+ points each, giant 205(?) the others 275ish and the spawn at 55 or so.

jared, you are a god. Well done man + rep xD, scary bought the ideat of a group of bestigors that essentially get a +2 static combat res for winning (one for the standard and one for them losing it) unless i'm reading that wrong (i hope so) hehe, gorgon sounds like a cool idea too
I assume Morgan Freeman is the voice of the Emperor.
My Painting Log! http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...nes-horde.html
im not digging the razorgor at all.
the rest look good. the musculature on the minos is a bit ridiculous, but not that big a deal.
cyclops giant sounds insane. a chance to completely shut down casters in 24", thats borderline op. gonna have to wait and read up more on that guy.
ive been waiting to do beastmen for a long time, im definitely looking forward to the new book.
leave the moderating to the moderators
if pro is the opposite of con, does that mean progress is the opposite of congress?
Oh no, I feel a new army I will ahve to collect on the way
I agree about the Minotaurs musculature, but im still getting some! I've also been waiting for beasts to be redone for a while, really looking forward to them!
I also like how the Ungors are more human in their appearance. Thanks for posting
PLAN CLAN MAN!!
He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man- S. Johnson
You are welcome.
I really like the look of them! It's good to see some refreshing new models for an older army. Well done and thanks for posting JvK!
Going to be difficult to prevent myself from buying some of these.. hehe!
Wow, thanks for posting this! I must say I actually like the look of the Minotaurs, an improvement from what I recall of the previous Minotaur miniatures. Beefy and ugly, just like a beastperson should be! Also how many of the other beastmen look more human, I think it's a better touch.
Although the Beastigors do remind me of something I saw in that Narnia movie, I think it's the red armour and the fact that they look a bit too tidy to be a chaotic beast. Still something I'd certainly consider if I went into WFB and wasn't such an undead-head.
Thanks for brining the pictures to my attention.
Oh dear, what a shame about the minotaurs! I was really looking forward to a good minotaur kit but I'm sorry to say I'm do not like them at all, they had a really good opponity to make a cool plastic kit that would sell great, but whats with the ridiculous muscle and the feet look stupid, minotaurs should have hairy heads like a bull but they look like warcraft tauren.
The beastigor look great though, the rest is a pile of poo, escpecially the razorgore, i thought everyone was joking!
