Empire of Wolves


Campaign army list


It is the imperial year 2217 and Sigmar's Empire is divided against itself, as it has been for more than eight hundred years. Hostile emperors rule in Middenheim, Altdorf, Talabheim, and Marienburg.

For sixteen years the Empire of Middenland has been ruled by Empress Duccia: murderer, reformer, tyrant. Now she is dead, and a successor to the wolf-throne of Ulric must be chosen at midwinter.

In all of the divided Empire, only the Emperor of Middenland is still chosen by election. Yet the election is a peculiar game of brutality and bribery that seems more like civil war, as the strongest lords of Middenland compete to demonstrate which of them is the most powerful, the most able to rule.

These lords assemble their mercenary armies and prepare to do battle for the support of their lesser peers. When the election comes one of them must be emperor, or Middenland will fall to its many enemies. Each of them is convinced of his absolute right to the throne. Each will take any risk, pay any price, kill anyone who stands in their way.

The wolves howl and winter closes in.
 


The following army list is designed to represent the armies raised during the Middenland imperial election. Such armies are very diverse in nature, and rely heavily on the personal qualities of their generals to hold them together.


General rules

This army list is not required to play in the campaign. Players may use standard army lists instead. Some of the rules and units used in this army list may be found in the Empire, Dwarf or Ogre Kingdoms army books. Note that this means the 7th edition Empire book, and the 6th edition Ogre Kingdoms book, not the more recent 8th edition versions!

Retinues
In addition to the usual lord, hero, core, special and rare choices, this army list has a section dedicate to retinue units. These are not available for army list selection unless at least one character with the appropriate 'retinue' special rule is also selected. The retinue rule for that character explains which units may be selected, and whether they count as core, special, or rare.

For example, if you select a Halfling Captain for your army, you are then able to select units of Halfling Mercenaries as special choices and units of Halfling Rangers as rare choices.

Note that you are not required to select any retinue units if you do not want to. You can, for example, select a Halfling Captain without selecting any other Halfling units.

Mounted Infantry
Some infantry units ride horses to battle but dismount to fight. Such units have the Vanguard rule, but their vanguard move is 8" instead of 12". Any characters that have joined the unit may move with them.

The Army General
The army general may buy one command skill from the command skills list.

Command skills

Inspiring leader: The army general's leadership radius is increased by 6". 25 points.

Strategist: the player may move up to two terrain pieces up to 6“ in any direction, after assigning table sides but before either player deploys. Terrain may not be moved into other terrain, nor may it be moved off the table. If both players have a character with this skill, roll a dice to determine which may choose to use the ability first. No terrain piece may be moved more than once. 25 points.

Tactician: after both armies have deployed, but before deploying scouts, up to two friendly units may be re-deployed. If both players have a character with this skill, roll a dice to determine which may choose to use the ability first. 25 points.


Combat skills

Mercenary leaders are experienced, wealthy and cynical. During the long years it has taken them to achieve their status, they have accumulated distinctive methods of command and unique fighting styles.

Any character with the 'combat skills' special rule may buy one combat skill at the listed points cost.

Skills do not count towards the magic item allowance of characters. No character may have more than one skill (though the army general may have one command skill and one combat skill).

If a character wishes to buy a skill that another character in the army already has, then the skill will cost twice the normal amount for that character. Should a third character wish to have the same skill, the cost is three times, and so on.

Should two or more characters join the same unit, only one of the characters' combat skills will function. Choose which one (you may change which combat skill is in effect any time a new character joins the unit, or a character leaves).

Ambush: Infantry only. The character, and any infantry unit of no more than 30 models and not armed with pikes or dwarf pikes joined by him, may use the Ambushers special rule. 25 points.

Artillerist: if the character is within 3" of a friendly war machine, they may re-roll any one artillery or scatter dice for that war machine once per turn. Only one machine may be affected per turn. In addition, the character has the retinue rule (Ribaudequins and Siege Cannon as rare choices). 15 points.

Charging shot: the character, and any unit he joins, may choose to shoot when charging if armed with pistols or thrown weapons. These shots are made at the charged unit, and may not be made if the charged unit flees. First, move the chargers to the maximum range of their missile weapons, if they are not already closer than this. Then resolve the shots as normal. Then resolve any stand and shoot reaction from the charged unit. Finally, complete the charge. Panic tests apply as normal for either round of shooting. 25 points.

Contempt: the character, and any unit joined by him, is immune to panic. 25 points.

Defence in depth: a unit joined by the character has a maximum rank bonus of +4, not +3 as is normal. 25 points.

Fire and retreat: the character, and any unit he joins, may move up to half their movement rate directly backward at the end of the shooting phase, after firing at a legitimate target. This skill may not be used with move-or-fire weapons. 25 points.

Hopelessly stubborn: the character, and any unit he joins, is stubborn. 30 points.

Precision drill:  Infantry only. The character, and any infantry unit he joins, may make a single free reform at the start of their own turn before charge declarations are made. They may move as normal that turn, and may charge. 30 points.

Quick shot: the character, and any unit he joins, gains the rule 'multiple shots: 2' when shooting with a short bow, bow, long bow, light crossbow, javelin, or throwing axe. 25 points.

Superior marksmanship: the character, and any unit he joins, gains the rule 'ignores cover.' 20 points.

Whirlwind attack: the character, and all models in the front rank of any unit he joins, have the Devastating Charge special rule. 30 points.


The Empireof Wolves armory

Arquebus

The arquebus is a much larger firearm than the handgun, and correspondingly both more powerful and more difficult to load. It is especially popular in Estalia and Araby, but has recently been adopted by mercenaries from The Empire.
 
Rules: range 30", S5, armor piercing, move or fire, prepare shot

-Prepare shot: after firing, the unit must spend their next shooting phase reloading before they may fire again. They may not shoot while reloading, even if they carry other missile weapons. They may reload even if they have moved or are in combat.

Blunderbuss

A crude firearm that discharges a spray of shot over a small area, the blunderbuss is a popular weapon with robbers.

Rules: range 12", S3, d6 automatic hits.

-Automatic hits: there is no need to roll to hit when firing the blunderbuss.

Double-barrelled Hochland Long Rifle

For a substantial price, Hochland gunsmiths will create custom weapons to a buyer's specifications.

Rules: range 36", S4, armor piercing, move or fire, sniper, double-barrelled

-Double-barrelled: any model successfully hit by this weapon suffers not one but two hits. Roll to wound for each hit as normal.

Hunting rifle

Hunting rifles are expensive and difficult to obtain, but offer better accuracy and range than a normal handgun.

Rules: range 36", S4, armor piercing, move or fire

Halberd

The halberd is a fearsome weapon, and is used to support large formations of pikemen.

Rules: +1 S, two-handed, armor-piercing

Horseman's mace

The maces, axes, hammers and swords used by cavalrymen are heavier and longer than those used by foot soldiers. The extra height granted by the horse makes these weapons horribly effective.

Rules: +1 S, mounted models only

Light Crossbow

The light crossbow can be spanned faster and more easily than the arbalest used by heavier missile troopers. Its mobility is balanced by its significantly reduced range.

Rules: range 20", S4

Pavaise

The pavaise is a large, portable screen for missile-armed soldiers to shelter behind. They are commonly used by Tilean crossbowmen, but are unpopular with Imperial mercenaries because they restrict tactical mobility.

Rules: + 2 armor save, -1 movement

Pike

Pikes are the primary weapon of Tilean mercenaries. Their extreme length makes them a tremendous hindrance both on and off the field of battle, but their effectiveness as a weapon more than compensates.

Rules: always strikes first (to the front of the unit only, and only if the unit has at least a +1 rank bonus), fight in 3 extra ranks (only if the unit has at least a +1 rank bonus), armor-piercing, two-handed, phalanx, awkward weapon.

-Phalanx: a unit must contain at least fifteen models armed with pikes, must have a rank bonus of at least +2, and must be in open ground, in order to use the phalanx rules. Cavalry, chariots, war beasts, monstrous cavalry, monstrous infantry, monstrous beasts, and monsters charging the front of the phalanx do not count as charging, and lose the 'always strikes first' rule if they have it. They also suffer -2 to hit the phalanx in combat (for the duration of the combat).

-Awkward weapon: any model armed with a pike may not enter buildings. They take dangerous terrain tests as if cavalry. They may not use missile weapons if equipped with them. Finally, a unit that is frenzied for any reason may not use pikes.

Note that a unit armed with pikes will fight in five ranks if they did not charge that turn, and four if they did. An extra rank may fight if the unit is in horde formation.

Dwarf Pike

Dwarf mercenaries occasionally use their own version of the pike, appropriately shortened to suit their stature. The dwarf pike is also used by halflings, but in even smaller numbers.

Rules: as pike, but fight in 2 extra ranks rather than 3.

Note that a unit armed with dwarf pikes will fight in four ranks if they did not charge that turn, and three if they did. An extra rank may fight if the unit is in horde formation.


Schools of Magic

Human wizards follow one of the four great magical traditions. Alchemists derive their power from potions, reagents, and mechanical devices. Shamans call forth elemental spirits and totemic animals. Sorcerers make terrible pacts with otherworldly entities. Theurgists implore the gods themselves to intervene in the mortal world.

All wizards must select one of the four schools of magic (chose when selecting the army list). Then, to determine each of the wizard's spells in turn, roll a dice to see which magic lore the spell comes from:

Alchemy: 1-3 = lore of fire, 4-6 = lore of metal

Shamanism: 1-3 = lore of beasts, 4-6 = lore of life

Sorcery: 1-3 = lore of shadow, 4-6 = lore of death

Theurgy: 1-3 = lore of heavens, 4-6 = lore of light

Roll on that lore to find which spell the wizard knows. The first time a wizard rolls a duplicate spell, he must replace it with the signature spell from the same lore (this is the only way to acquire a signature spell). Further duplicates must be re-rolled until new results are generated - the wizard may not choose his spells.

It is permissible for more than one wizard in the same army to know the same spell.


Common Magic Items

Use the points values given in the warhammer rule book.

Empire of Wolves Magic Items

-Magic Weapons

The Midwinter Blade

Once owned by Emperor Severin the Great of Middenland, this ice-white sword freezes bone and turns blood to crystal with every strike.

Counts as a spear. Multiple wounds (d6). 60 points.

Sacred Spear of Myrmidia

The spear is an emblem of Myrmidia, the goddess of the science of war. Such a weapon, when blessed by her priests, will never fail to find its target.

Counts as a spear. All attacks made with this spear hit automatically. 55 points.

Doktor Vement's Ethereal Dissipator

One of Middenheim's foremost alchemists-engineers, Doktor Vement surpassed his other considerable achievements with the construction of this device. Firing an invisible beam of etheric heat, the Dissipator can reduce its victims to smoldering ash in a fraction of a moment.

This is a missile weapon: range 48" S6, multiple shots (d6), flaming attacks, magical attacks. 40 points.

The Answerer

Vast, unwieldy and slow, The Answerer is a sword for those who understand that it is always the last word on a subject that carries the most weight.

+3 S, two-handed, always strikes last. 40 points.

Echetus's Bow

Echetus was a warlord who devastated the southern tip of Tilea more than one thousand years ago. His bow, which still survives, is of truly epic proportions.

Counts as a long bow, but with S7 and multiple wounds (d3). May not be used by dwarfs or halflings. 35 points.

Pirates often favor weapons that carry enchantments of pain and disintegration, since these allow them to overcome their enemies more swiftly.

+1S. Models wounded by the Privateer's Sabre must reroll successful armor saves. 30 points.

Captain Bartwurm's Hook Hand

After his hand was cut off as a punishment for piracy, Captain Bartwurm had an enchanted, barbed hook set in its place. Unfortunately for him, he was later to lose both the hook and his other hand in an encounter with a particularly well-armed orc.

Causes d3 wounds instead of 1. Additionally, the bearer causes fear in Fishmen. 30 points.

Diabolical Daggers

Poisoned daggers are the preferred weapons of Tilean assassins. This matching pair house a demonic entity with the ability to spontaneously manifest the most noxious of chemicals.

The Needler

Built by the infamous Van Halfling to aid him in his unending crusade against the undead, The Needler is a weapon whose small size belies its destructive potential.

Counts as a light crossbow with multiple shots (2), magical attacks and sniper. 25 points.

-Magic Armor

Snowfall Shield

Those who gaze upon this shield feel the midwinter snow, the gift of Father Ulric, settle deeply upon their hearts.

Counts as a shield. All models in enemy units in base contact with the bearer are reduced to initiative 1 and have the always strikes last special rule. 50 points.

Amour of Mystic Refraction

To the mystical sight of a wizard, this plain armor appears dazzlingly prismatic.

Counts as full plate amour. The wearer has magic resistance 3. 45 points.

Sacred Shield of Myrmidia

The shield is the other of Myrmidia’s primary symbols. When properly dedicated to her service, a shield becomes an object of irresistible awe.

Counts as a shield. Models attacking the bearer must re-roll successful hits. 25 points.

Cuirass of Perfect Safety

Made for the Doge of Tobaro but long-since sold off, this cuirass projects a defensive aura around the wearer.

Provides the wearer with a 1+ armor save that cannot be improved further. 25 points.

Counts as a shield. The bearer may increase his WS, I and A by 1 each when fighting in a challenge. 15 points.

Orc-skull Helmet

This ugly but very solid helmet was made by an especially angry dwarf, after the orcs had been driven out of Fort Solace.

+1 to armor save (combines with shield and armor). The wearer may make an additional headbutt attack each combat phase. This attack is made at I1 and S4, and is a magical attack. 15 points.

Battle-harness of Curious Lethargy 

The result of a failed experiment, this armor generates an overwhelming urge to sleep that not even its wearer is immune to.

Counts as full plate armor. All models (friendly or otherwise) in base contact with the wearer suffer -1 to hit and -1 to wound in combat. The wearer is subject to stupidity. 10 points.

Helm of Success

A helmet of magically lightened and strengthened gold is the ultimate status symbol for any mercenary. With such a prize in their possession, how could they fail at any task?

+1 to armor save (combines with shield and armor). The wearer will automatically pass all characteristics tests other than Ld tests. 10 points.


-Talismans

Cathayan Panda Pelt

The panda is a curious creature found in far Cathay. These bear-like beasts are often hunted for their pelts, which can readily be enchanted with spells of protection. For some reason, the panda pelt is an especially potent proof against fire.

4+ ward save. The bearer has a 2+ ward save against flaming attacks. 50 points.

Lucky Coin

Carrying a lucky coin of some sort is a common enough superstition. But there are a few such coins that actually work.

5+ ward save, bearer may reroll one failed armor save once per turn. 35 points.

The Ashes of Marienburg

The recent war in Marienburg ended in the destruction of large parts of the city. Many of the citizens fought to the last to defend their homes and businesses, and the mixed ashes and blood taken from the ruins can be made into a powerful talisman of steadfastness.

The bearer and any unit he joins are immune to fear, terror and panic. 35 points.

Sorcerous Squid Tattoos

The squid, a bizarre monster of the deep, is a common subject for tattooing in Tilea and the Border Princes. When inscribed into the skin with magical ink, and displayed in plain sight, such tattoos can have a powerful healing effect.

Regenerate (4+). The bearer may not wear any armor (and loses any he already has), but may still use a shield. 25 points.

Graf Martin’s Finger-bone

Graf Martin of Stirland, the heroic slayer of the vampire Mannfred von Carstein at the battle of Hel Fenn, is considered a major saint by the Church of Sigmar. His finger-bones, inscribed with holy verses, are a powerful defense against wizardry. It is interesting to note, however, that Graf Martin must have had an unusually large number of fingers, judging by the quantity of these relics that Church sell.

The bearer may add one additional dispel dice to the army’s dice pool in each enemy magic phase. 25 points.

Screaming Skull of the Iron Lady

The Iron Lady of Remas was a malicious and destructive tyrant who ruled the city over five hundred years ago. She was eventually struck down by her own ministers, and her head impaled on a pike before the palace. Yet even after death her head continued to shriek with rage, until at last it was taken down and cast into the sea. Years later the skull was washed ashore near Miragliano, still screaming. The Lady's spirit is a powerful protection, but few can abide her incessant wailing.

The bearer has a 5+ ward save and is immune to killing blow and poison. However, all enemy models hate them. 25 points.


-Arcane Items

Confounding Wand

Created by a jealous wizard of little imagination, this wand exists only to stifle the creativity of others.

All enemy spell casters suffer -1 on casting and dispel dice rolls. 60 points.

Infernal Contract

Some wizards make terrible bargains with otherworldly entities in order to gain power and knowledge. Such bargains always come at a dreadful price.

The bearer may choose their spells instead of determining them randomly, and gains an additional +1 to cast spells. However, each wound they suffer from any source becomes d6 wounds. 50 points.

Petrucci’s Infirmity Compensator

Petrucci was already an old man when he constructed this bizarre bronze exo-skeleton. He intended that it would return to him his youthful vigor, but instead it caused him to break three bones, and to die shortly afterward. The device was repaired by his apprentice, who went on to have a successful career as a battlemage

The wearer gains a 6+ armor save as if wearing light armor, and may still cast spells. They also gain +1 WS, +1S, +1I and +1A. 30 points.

Circlet of Burning Gold

The art of alchemy can be used to create a huge variety of devices. This circlet, burning with a perpetual but heatless flame, causes the limbs of its target to become as heavy as lead.

Bound spell, power level 3, hex, range 36". The target unit has all its movement halved (including flee, pursuit and charge moves) until the start of the bearer's next magic phase.  30 points.

Robe of Cathayan Silk

In far Cathay, most wizards wear robes of dazzling beauty, woven from silk and rare metals. These robes are very rare in the western lands, and are immensely valuable.

The wearer generates one additional power dice. 30 points.

Magic Carpet

The sorcerers of Araby are renowned for their flying carpets, carried aloft on the backs of shadowy demons.

The bearer can fly. May only be used by infantry models. 25 points.

The Mad Necromancer's Tome

There are many fourth- or fifth-hand copies of the works of the great Arabian necromancers in circulation in Tilea. Most of them contain relatively trivial information, but a few explain the casting of certain major invocations.

The bearer knows one random spell from the Death spell list in addition to their other spells. 15 points.

Homunculus

A tiny, artificial humanoid created by alchemy, a Homunculus allows its master greater control over the winds of magic - but at a considerable risk.

The bearer may attempt to cast a spell they have already cast once that turn. When making this attempt they will suffer a miscast (but not irresistible force) on any double. 10 points.


-Enchanted Items

Haltforst's Thaumic Collapser

Haltforst designed the Thaumic Collapser as revenge against the wizard’s school in Middenheim, from which he was expelled. When activated, it shut down the school’s many artifacts for nearly a week. It also blew Haltforst’s brain out through his ears.

The bearer may activate the Collapser at the start of any turn (either player's). Roll a dice: on a 1 or 2, the bearer takes d6 S5 hits with no saves of any kind possible. On a 3-6, the following effects occur immediately:

-all magic items (carried by friends and by enemies) within 24" of the bearer cease to function until the end of the current turn. At the end of the turn,  roll a dice for each item that was affected by the Collapser (including the Collapser itself). On a roll of a 6, the item will not function for the remainder of the game.

-any and all spells currently in effect within 24" of the bearer are immediately dispelled.

-all wizards within 24" of the bearer are unable to cast or dispel spells this turn, and may not channel.

-any units with the ethereal special rule lose it until the end of the turn. Any units with ward saves lose them until the end of the turn.

50 points.

Liquor of Immovable Resolution

This potion, brewed from a peculiar mixture of the finest dwarf beer and the best Tilean wine, inspires the drinker and his fellows to inhuman levels of determination.

One use only. Use at the start of any close combat phase - the bearer and any unit joined by them are unbreakable until the end of that turn, even if the bearer is subsequently killed. 40 points.

Vitelli’s  Matrix of Undoing

Vitelli was a master gunner who grew tired of seeing his well-aimed artillery fire deflected by cowardly magic. He commissioned the dwarfs of Barak Varr to create a device that would overthrow even the most potent defenses.

The bearer may designate one friendly war machine within 3" of them at the start of each friendly shooting phase. All shots fired that turn by the war machine are magical, flaming, and ignore ward saves. 25 points.

Amulet of Coal

Amulets of Coal are created by journeymen Alchemists as a final test of skill. A properly-constructed amulet is a powerful weapon, but a flawed one is likely to burn its wearer alive.

Bound spell, power level 4, magic missile, range 24", 2d6 S4 flaming hits,  25 points.

Prophetic Book

Books of prophecy are immensely popular in Tilea. The most famous are the seventeen books of Morr, held in the great temple at Luccinni.

Bound Harmonic Convergence spell. Power level 4. 25 points.

Wyrdstone Bullets

Only the most fearless, or foolhardy, dare to use bullets made from wyrdstone. Unless handled with extreme care, they are as dangerous to the user as to his target.

All shots from arquebuses, handguns, dwarf handguns, or pistols fired by the bearer are magical, have +1S and cause d3 wounds. 15 points..

Troll's Blood Elixir

The remarkable properties of troll blood persist after the death of the creature. By determined and costly effort, an alchemist can create a potion that will cause severed limbs to be regrown, and even mortal wounds to close.

One use only. Use at the start of any close combat phase: the bearer gains +1T and the ability to regenerate until the end of the next close combat phase. 15 points.

Potion of Excessive Speed

The recipe for this potion calls for a substantial quantity of elf blood, a rare and expensive ingredient indeed. There are rumors of secret elf-farms in the Osso Hills near Sartosa, where captives are bled continually to feed the demand for this elixir.

One use only. Use at the start of any close combat phase: the bearer gains +1A and the always strikes first rule until the end of the next close combat phase. All elves are subject to hatred against the bearer (even after the potion has been used). 15 points.


-Magic Standards

Sacred Banner of Solkan

Discovered beneath the city of Remas by Heiroynmus Lothair, this ancient banner bears the image of Solkan the Avenger. Solkan's cold fury fills those who march beneath the banner and inspires them to fight without mercy.

All friendly units within 12" of this banner may re-roll failed rolls to wound in close combat. 100 points.

In Tilea, Myrmidia’s dominance of the battlefield is unquestioned. Her banner inspires absolute devotion.

All friendly units within 12" of this banner are stubborn. 80 points.

Icon of Glory

Stolen from a rotting temple in the land of Ind, the Icon of Glory shines with cold, unquenchable light.

All enemy models in base contact with the bearer, or with any unit joined by the bearer, suffer -1 to hit in close combat. 60 points.

Banner of Sigmar's Hand

Sigmar, the stern god of battle, will not allow swords to strike down his chosen.

All models in the unit have the scaly skin rule (6+). 50 points.

The army list


Lords

Imperial Noble: 75 points.

In the Empire of Wolves, many of the leading nobles are also imperial electors. Elsewhere in the divided Empire the title of elector is meaningless, but the rights and powers that go along with such a position are nevertheless considerable.

M4 WS5 BS5 S4 T4 W3 I5 A3 Ld9

Unit type: infantry

Equipment: hand weapon, light armor.

Options: may ride a warhorse (+15 points), which may have barding (+6 points). Alternately, may ride a Pegasus (+50 points - see the Empire army book for rules), which may have barding (+10 points). Or may ride a Griffon (+200 points - see the Empire army book for rules), which may be armored (+20 points, confers a 4+ armor save to the Griffon).

If mounted, may have a lance (+4 points) or a horseman's mace (+4 points).

May wear heavy armor (+3 points) or full plate armor (+6 points). May have a shield (+3 points).

May have a great weapon (+4 points), flail (+4 points), additional hand weapon (+4 points), or a halberd (+4 points).

May have a pistol (+6 points), or a brace of pistols (+9 points). May also have a light crossbow (+6 points), a crossbow (+8 points), a longbow (+8 points), a handgun (+8 points), an arquebus (+8 points), a Hunting Rifle (+10 points), a Hochland long rifle (+12 points) or a double-barrelled Hochland long rifle (+18 points).

May choose up to 100 points of magic items from the Common and Empire of Wolves magic item lists.

Special rules: If mounted on an unbarded warhorse, with a maximum total armor save no better than 4+, counts as Fast Cavalry. Imperial drill, retinue (Hunting Hounds as core choices, Forstjaegar as rare choices).

- Imperial Drill: : if an army includes at least one Imperial Noble, all units of Imperial Soldiers and Imperial Marksmen in the army may use the detachment rules.


Condottiere: 90 points.

Human mercenary warlords are often know as condottieri, a Tilean word meaning ‘contractors.’ A condottiere can come from any background: a dispossessed Bretonnian noble, a fanatical Estalian templar knight, a scheming Tilean merchant prince, or, as is most common, a veteran of the constant civil wars that wrack the divided Empire.

M4 WS6 BS5 S4 T4 W3 I6 A4 Ld9

Unit type: infantry

Equipment: hand weapon, light armor.

Options: may ride a warhorse (+15 points), which may have barding (+6 points). Alternately, may ride a Pegasus (+50 points - see the Empire army book for rules), which may have barding (+10 points). Or may ride a Griffon (+200 points - see the Empire army book for rules), which may be armored (+20 points, confers a 4+ armor save to the Griffon).

If mounted, may have a lance (+4 points) or a horseman's mace (+4 points).

The Carroccio is a Hero choice only (not a Rare choice), though it does not count as a character in any other respect. It may carry a magic standard chosen from the Common magic items list or the Empire of Wolves magic items list, with no maximum points cost.


The Battle Standard: if the Carroccio is not present in the army, any one hero (except for a Battle Wizard, an Orc Captain or an Elf Captain) may carry the Battle Standard for +25 points. They may chose other equipment and upgrades as normal, though they may not use the 'scout' rule if they have it. If they carry no other magic items, the Battle Standard may be a magic standard chosen from the Common or Empire of Wolves magic items list, with no maximum points cost.

0-1 Baggage Train: 50 points.

Unit size: 10.

Unit type: unique.

Equipment: hand weapon.

Options: the baggage train defenders may have bows (+2 point per model) or crossbows (+3 point per model) or handguns (+3 point per model).

The baggage train is always placed as the army's first deployment, and must be positioned with one of the longer sides in contact with the player's board edge.

The baggage train has no flanks or rear, and the defenders are stubborn and immune to psychology. If broken in combat the baggage train is immediately removed. The defenders may all fight in combat, and enemy models suffer -1 to hit them.

The defenders have a 360 degree line of sight, and count as being in hard cover.

If the baggage train is destroyed in combat, it is considered to be looted: this is worth an additional 100 victory points to the enemy. If the baggage train is destroyed outside of combat, the bonus is not awarded.

If the baggage train is still on the table at the end of the game, the owning player receives 100 victory points.

Crewman M4 WS3 BS3 S3 T3 W1 I3 A1 Ld9

Unit size: 1 War Wagon with 6 crewmen

Unit type: chariot

Equipment: handweapon, halberd, handgun.

Options: replace 3 crewmen with a light cannon (+30 points). The remaining three crewmen have handweapons only. This cannon functions exactly as a normal cannon, with the following exceptions: range 30", S7, multiple wounds (d3), move and fire. The cannon has a 360 degree line of sight. If a misfire would indicate that the cannon was destroyed, it may no longer fire and the war wagon takes d6 wounds with no saves of any kind.

Special rules: stubborn, immune to psychology, large target, 3+ armor save.

A war wagon cannot charge, flee or pursue. If broken in combat, it is destroyed.

The crewmen may fire their handguns even if the war wagon moves, with no penalty for moving and firing. The crewmen have a 360 degree line of sight.

In combat, the war wagon has no flanks or rear. Cavalry, chariots, war beasts, monstrous cavalry, monstrous infantry, monstrous beasts, and monsters charging the war wagon do not count as charging, and lose the 'always strikes first' rule if they have it. They also suffer -2 to hit the war wagon in combat (for the duration of the combat).

Crewman M8 WS3 BS3 S3 T3 W1 I3 A1 Ld7

Unit size: 1 machine and 3 crewmen

Unit type: war machine

Equipment: hand weapon.

Options: none.

Special rules: none.

As a Cannon, but with range 24“, S7 and causing d3 wounds. Grapeshot is S4. The cannon and crew can move 8”, and can march, and even move and fire (though not march and fire). They may flee charges, even though war machines may not usually do so.


[note that the ribaudequin and siege cannon are rare retinue choices for a character with the artillerist combat skill.]

Ribaudequin: 75 points.

Also known as the organ gun, these unusual multi-barreled weapons are often used to defend the artillery park from attack by light troops.

Unit size: 1 machine and 3 crewmen

Unit type: war machine

Equipment: hand weapon.

Special rules: to fire a Ribaudequin, roll the artillery dice to determine the number of automatic hits it causes on the target. If a misfire is rolled, use the cannon misfire chart.

Range 24", S4, armor piercing, quick to fire (this means that a Ribaudequin may move and fire, and stand and shoot).


Siege Cannon: 150 points.

The very largest cannon are too cumbersome to be of much use in a pitched battle. Nevertheless, when they can be persuaded to hit something, their destructive power is truly terrifying.

Siege Cannon M- WS- BS- S- T7 W5 I- A- Ld-
Crewman M4 WS3 BS3 S3 T3 W1 I3 A1 Ld7

Unit size: 1 machine and 5 crewmen

Unit type: war machine
