    • The suffering Army

      As long there are new models from a popular brand I have the idea to bring some rules that can, along with existing rules from VC army suffering units, complete a new whole "homebrew" side-army.


      Hereditary: Same as VC book.

      Same rules for Ashes to Ashes, and Gates from the Netherworld.

      Magic Items: (Cost and names can be disscussed later).
      Weapon: Hand Weapon. At the begining of the combat round, Bearer can lose -1 Aegis (Mundane) to gain +1 Attack, +1S. (Maximum value is S6 and 6 Attacks).
      Weapon: Great Weapon. S10 against LD.
      Artifact: Only one use. Magic attacks against unit bearer loses that special rule.
      Artifact: Model changes base to 50x50, size to Large and cannot join Units. +6" Range on their spells (+3" on aura) and Wail of Woe.
      Artifact: Fear Tests against bearer are taken with maximized rolls.
      Artifact: +1D3 wounds on Ethereal units when Hereditay spell is casted. (Except Characters and Towering Presence).
      Artifact: +1 Aegis (up to 4+).
      Artifact: Bound Spell (4/8). Ground. Range 12". Raises one Phantom Host.
      0-2 Banner: Unit Gains Autonomous.
      0-2 Banner: Unit can cast hereditary spell on itself (4/8).
