Braugh Slavelord

From 1d4chan

Braugh Slavelord is a Warhammer Fantasy Ogre Kingdoms character (who can be fielded for any army) released in limited numbers in 2004, and exists as an extremely rare model.

The Legend[edit]

His official lore states:

"Known to the Chaos Dwarfs as Ghrask Dragh, literally Corpse Slaver. Braugh Slavelord is a legend even amongst his own merciless peers. Ogre slavers are a common enough sight in the far corners of the world, but only one can claim to enslave his prey in death as well as life."

At some point he raided a Necromancer's lair and obtained a set of chains and manacles, which he uses to keep a host of undead minions and ghosts to aid him in...whatever, and his model has a living human man and woman he is dragging against their will plus a Gnoblar carrying a corpse. The character only exists with a blank check for interesting lore, but as he was only handed out to managers and even his own rules state they are "Unofficial Rules". Beyond that, he doesn't have a square base and thus would be difficult to field in any legitimate pre-Age of Sigmar game.

On The Tabletop[edit]

Official rules: Braugh costs 445 points. He wasn't given a category assignment, although it can be assumed he's either a Lord or Hero.

Braugh has M6, S3, WS6, BS6, T5, W3, I3 , A5, LD9 He has Soul-binder Chains as a Magic Weapon. His armor is a Bullplate, and has special rules.

The Great Bullplate: "Braugh Slavelord's Gutplate is chained directly into his flesh. Bearing the skull of a sacred cavebeast and enchanted by the Slaughtermaster of Braugh's former tribe this artifact bestows speed and ferocity on those around it. The Great Bullplate allows Braugh and his minions to charge 12" instead of the 8" normally allowed by a Movement of 4. Despite not being in a unit of three or more Ogres Braugh may still make a Bull Charge if the other criteria are met."

Soul-binder Chains: "These chains flail and writhe with necromantic sigils, lashing out and entangling those who seek to harm Braugh while he throttles them to death. The Soul-binder Chains count as paired Magical Close Combat weapons, granting Braugh an extra Attack. At the beginning of each Combat Phase Braugh may nominate an enemy model in base contact. That model loses a D3 attacks for that phase."


Cause Fear

Slavelord: Braugh is surrounded by those who he has enchanted, many still attached to him by the chains he took from the necromancer's dungeon. Braugh begins the game with 12 slaves, these must form up with Braugh at the centre of the unit. This acts as a normal unit but with the exceptions listed below. These can be represented by virtually any humanoid model that can be mounted on a 20mm base although Braugh is invariably accompanied by a Zombie or two. Such is the massive magic surrounding Braugh that these undead do not follow the usual rules for undead, but instead act as normal. Braugh benefits from a "Look Out Sir!" roll as long as there are at least 5 slaves in his unit. He may not voluntarily leave his unit under any circumstances. Slaves are M4, S2, WS2, BS2, T3, W1, I2, A1, LD6
