Out of the Wilds
From the dark depths of feral forests, from the wide untamed plains, and from every wild place beyond the gaze of civilisation, nature’s savage heart strikes without warning. Feel the ground tremble beneath thunderous hooves, shiver at the howls of the hunt, and know that you are stalked by the Beast Herds.
The Herds comprise all manner of creatures, appearing like local fauna yet able to fight like men, with origins shrouded in the mists of time. Mighty creatures stride through the forests by their side, spreading terror in their wake. Marked in the womb by shamanic rituals and tribal magics, fueled by the desire to prove themselves worthy of the great stories of their peoples, the Herds view the sedentary nations as little more than a convenient larder and a testing ground for glory.
The Beastherds have many units which can harass an opponents deployment and play by using their ambush special rules. Beastherds also have access to bring a lot of chariots to the battle, giving them a fast and dangerous counter to enemy forces. A wide array of monsters and other fast units is often used to surround the opponent and then crush their forces with overwhelming might. Beastherds excel at mobility, using hard hitting units, and ambush tactics to beat their opponents.
Lore of Beast Herds
To the Beast Herds there is a strength to each herd, which is focused upon their totem. The belief of each member of the herd gives the totem a significance which a Soothsayer can tap into and bond to a group. But whether Beast magic comes from totems or the Soothsayer’s own skill, there is always a focus on gaining advantage in the hunt – moving swiftly, ambushing and seizing their prey by the throat.
