Emerging from the gloom the dreaded Corpse Cart of the Host of the Pale King acts as a locus of unholy power.

It was on the first night that I saw them, shadows in the darkenwood. Gutteral mutterings, a hint of movement. They were gathered around a large object on the leafy forest floor, a loose knot of darkness within the darkness. Was it a corpse of a beast in the shadows? I could not tell. Their movements were quick and decisive, predators ready to pounce. I slipped away quietly into the darkenwood. The beasts had come.

So I am a bit excited by all of the discussion, hype, and propaganda that a new edition of one of my favourite wargames brings. A new version of Warhammer was recently released, and I've been curious what this has meant for my armies. One of them is a Beastman army, which is, at best, a semi-forgotten faction in a sea of new and extensively promoted factions. But I **think** there is something in the list that can make it useable, so I thought that I would look into it with the obsessed singlemindedness of a cash poor part-time wargaming fanatic and see what I could come up with.

So with the release of a new version of Warhammer I decided to dust off one of my old armies and give them a freshen up. The Beastmen, now known as the Brayherd, are one of those armies that I've collected, and made a start with, but haven't ever had them close to completion.
I've decided to give the beastmen a spruce up for the new warhammer, including re-basing them to round bases, and equipping them for the current game.
This ungor raider model is an older plastic ungor model, which I've converted into a raider by turning his polearm into a longbow, and adding an arrow to his back.

Pict capture of XIVth Legion Master of Signal Karthago at an unknown location during the Age of Darkness. As typical for a Death Guard Legionnaire Karthago has sustained a significant amount of superficial damage to his battle plate, most of which does not appear to have compromised the armour functionality.
Karthago is equipped with improved communications gear and an auspex, to support the ranged attacks of his fellow legionnaires. He also carries an archaic thurible of unknown origin, which were used more frequently by the XIVth legion towards the latter stages of the Age of Darkness.
