PostSubject: Beastmen and Hired Swords   Thu 23 Jun 2016 - 13:12

Hey out there,
i have an rule question for the Warband Beastmen Raiders in combination with hired swords.

The rule Animals say:
Beastmen are fearsome creatures of Chaos that
do not interact with other races other than in
war. A Beastmen warband may never hire any
Hired Swords unless specifically stated with
the Hired Sword.

For Hired Swords we use the „Swords of the empire (Liber malefic comilation)“.
The Chaos centaur (original scource BtB) has the entry "Beastmen may hire a Chaos Centaur"

The Dark Elf apprentice assassin and the Oger Slayer only have the: "Followers of Chaos may hire".

So could an Beastmen Warband hire those two guys?
You know any other hired swords for Beastmens?

Thanks for your opinion and help

As the rule is written no.

Otherwise it kind of depends on how your group feels about the Beasts. If they feel that the warband is pretty powerful the way it is, then you would be out of luck for HS.

My group has ignored the HS restriction since the warband was published in TC, mainly because there were NO possible HS when it was written AND it was the last 'official' warband published. SO there weren't going to BE any HS written except by fans, so what's the point of the rule?

We allow the Beasts to hire any HS that will work for ANY warband or chaos.

Other groups have just re-written existing HS with a Beastman theme and the words "will work for Beastmen" included in the may hire line. clown

Finally there is a fan-made HS called the Cursed Hillman out there on the net somewhere. I think he was published in a Fanatic.

Chaos Centaur is specifically mentioned so it can be hired.

Followers  of  Chaos  include  Cult  of  the  Possessed, Carnival  of  Chaos  and  any  other  Cults  of Chaos, plus  Beastmen,  Marauders  of  Chaos,  Norse,  and Chaos  Dwarfs.  Skaven  and  Dark  Elves  are  not counted amongst Chaos warbands.

So any hired sword which hiring list include Follower of caos can be hired by beastman warbands.


  • Dark Elf apprentice assassin
  • Ogre Slaver
  • Slaver


Lot of Hired sword can be hired because it list say any warband (and then a few expections):


  • Duelist
  • Highwayman
  • Imperial Assassin
  • Nomad Guide
  • Ogre Bodyguard
  • Pathfinder
  • Pit Fighter
  • Prospector
  • Thief
  • Tilean  Sharpshooter
  • Warlock
  • Witch


Some of the choices seems odd, but never understand the stupidness of greedy individuals.
I also used to convert them a little. (Imperial Assassin to Death cult assassin  followers of Khorne).
A warlock or a witch who thinks they can tap the Herdstone magical powers...
