Trollblood Trollkin Skinner MSRP $11.99 PIP 71054
The Trollkin race and their Troll warbeasts are known throughout the Iron Kingdoms for their voracious appetites. In such a culture, the hunters capable of bringing down big game are viewed with great respect. For the Skinners, wilderness Trollkin who dare to stand toe-to-toe with the biggest game of all, that respect borders on veneration. These cunning woodsmen hunt the mightiest of beasts with the same calm and determination as other Trollkin hunt boar or ulk. A player may field two Trollkin Skinners for each warlock in a Trollblood army.
Circle Orboros Warpborn Skinwalkers MSRP $49.99 PIP 72046
Circle Orboros Warpborn Skinwalkers Blister MSRP $16.99 PIP 72053
Warpwolves bring an undeniable power to the battlefield, but the massive creatures are difficult to control. Warpborn Skinwalkers are Devourer worshippers who chose to undergo a partial transformation that leaves their minds more human while empowering them with a bestial strength. These monsters wade through opposing formations, ripping soldiers apart with their jaws or their hefty polearms. A player may field two Warpborn Skinwalker units for each warlock in a Circle Orboros army.
Legion of Everblight Stinger MSRP $12.99 PIP 73051
Like nightmares given form, Stingers swarm among the greater dragonspawn of the Legion. These awful beasts lurk in shallow burrows waiting for hapless victims to approach so they can sink their barbed tails into living flesh. The stinger is then ripped from the creature’s body as its poison gland continues to pump its victim full of venom. This versatile monster is also capable of spewing forth fiery ash, its preferred attack when battling machines or lightly armored foes. A player may field any number of Stingers for each warlock in a Legion of Everblight army.
Skorne Dominar Rasheth MSRP $37.99 PIP 74045
In an empire known for discipline and precision, it is a rare man who can excel in spite of his unsavory appetites and predilections. Rasheth leads a house well known for its ability to train mighty titan warbeasts, and profits from the recent push for western expansion has allowed him to delve ever deeper into decadence. Too slothful to walk on his own, the Dominar is carried into battle by a team of Agonizers. A player may field one Dominar Rasheth in a Skorne army.
Skorne Paingiver Task Master Solo MSRP $9.99 PIP 74054
Slavery is one of the most deeply embedded elements of skorne culture. The Paingiver caste takes great pleasure in subjugating new beasts and races, and recent battles have only served to open their minds to new possibilities. Paingiver Task Masters are sent to oversee Skorne Minions in battle, and they are quick to apply the lash to any who grow lax in their service. A player may field two Paingiver Task Masters for each warlock in a Skorne army.
Minions Gun Boar MSRP $15.99 PIP 75030
The lumbering Gun Boars are walking artillery platforms in the service of Lord Carver. These beasts turn their light cannons upon enemy formations to scatter them with explosive force. The product of mad experiments conducted by Dr. Arkadius, Gun Boars represent substantial fire support for the forces of Farrow and boast a toughened hide that can withstand small arms fire. A player may field any number of Gun Boars for each warlock able to take farrow warbeasts in a Circle Orboros, Legion of Everblight, Minion, Skorne, or Trollblood army.
Minions Thrullg MSRP $15.99 PIP 75032
The reclusive Thrullg are hulking humanoids that feed on magical energy. Drawn from the safety of their lairs by the unfettered use of magic in battles across Caen, no spellcaster is safe in the vicinity of a living Thrullg. As if their magical appetites were not dangerous enough, these creatures’ claws and tentacles can kill a man as easily as they drain arcane power. A player may field two Thrullgs for each warlock in a Circle Orboros, Legion of Everblight,
Minion, Skorne, or Trollblood army.
