      • Claws-Range 1"; Attacks 4; Strength 3; Damage 2/4
    • Fighter Commentary - Your melee lord. Not actalue to best in melee but still decent damage dealing and some wounds. If near-death can use [double] Split to turn him into two blues so you still get value from your Leader's inevitable death.

      • Dagger-Range 1"; Attacks 3; Strength 3; Damage 2/4
    • Fighter Commentary- Changecaster on disk. Lets him keep up with other flyers. He is not that good with being expensive and his Blue Flames ability is too weak.

Fighter[edit]

Horrors[edit]

Your "rank and file" troops. Do well at range and melee, though not very tough. this lack of toughness is made up with the abilities [Double]Split' and [Double]Split Again, allowing a Horror on its last legs to become two new healthy but weaker fighters. Athough Flammers make more out of [Double] Locus of Sorcery, Horror will still make use of it to deal decent ranged damage against tougher fighters.

Pink Horror

  • Stats: Movement 4"; Toughness 3; Wounds 12; 90 Pts.
    • Rule: Elite
    • Weapons:
      • Blast-Range 3-10"; Attacks 2; Strength 3; Damage 1/4
      • Claws-Range 1"; Attacks 3; Strength 3; Damage 1/4
    • Fighter Commentary - your well rounded, Dealing 4 crit damage, and can use [Double]Split to turn into two Blue when on last legs, which actually greatly boost your Pinks damage potential.

Blue Horror

  • Stats: Movement 4"; Toughness 3; Wounds 8; 75 Pts.
    • Rule: Warrior
    • Weapons:
      • Blast-Range 3-10"; Attacks 2; Strength 3; Damage 1/3
      • Claws-Range 1"; Attacks 3; Strength 3; Damage 1/3
    • Fighter Commentary - -1 to crit damage and less wounds. You buy a blue for the Warband because you need a Pink for 15pts cheaper. Get more value by having a pink [Double]Split so you get two for a 60% discount. you can [Double]Split Again when he is about to die for a Brimstone, but it's a question of a situation if you need to hold out a few more wounds to win an objective or those dice better spent on a different ability.

Brimstone Horror

  • Stats: Movement 4"; Toughness 3; Wounds 6; 55 Pts.
    • Rule: Minion
    • Weapons:
      • Blast-Range 3-10"; Attacks 2; Strength 3; Damage 1/2
      • Claws-Range 1"; Attacks 3; Strength 3; Damage 1/2
    • Weak melee, weak range. But it's a cheap body for objectives, you might say. Sure, I'll say. 55pts for 4" move and the kind of defensive capabilities that make Orks feel proud of their t-shirts-and-derelict-tanks armor. By all means, if you have the points left over from a proper build, take it to get to 1000.

Flamer of Tzeentch[edit]

Flamer of Tzeentch

  • Stats: Movement 8"; Toughness 3; Wounds 15; 150 Pts.
    • Rule: Berserker
    • Weapons:
      • Blast-Range 3-10"; Attacks 3; Strength 3; Damage 2/4
      • Flangs-Range 1"; Attacks 2; Strength 3; Damage 2/4
  • Fighter Commentary Flamers serve the role of skirmish calvery. Although not impressive in melee, at the range they are able to burn enemies alive with [Double]Locus of Sorcery. if they do get into melee range, expect a [Quad] Capricious Warpflame to destroy that fighter especially if a leader with [Triple]Master of Destiny is in waiting.

Exalted Flamer of Tzeentch

  • Stats: Movement 8"; Toughness 3; Wounds 30; 210 Pts.
    • Rule: Berserker
    • Weapons:
      • Blast-Range 3-10"; Attacks 4; Strength 3; Damage 2/5
      • Flangs-Range 1"; Attacks 2; Strength 3; Damage 2/4
  • Fighter Commentary - for 60 more points you get +1 more ranged flamer attacks with +1 crit damage, and double the wounds.

Screamer of Tzeentch[edit]

  • Stats: Movement 12"; Toughness 3; Wounds 18; 180 Pts.
    • Rule: Agile, Fly
    • Weapons:
      • Flangs-Range 1"; Attacks 4; Strength 4; Damage 2/4
    • Fighter Commentary - a highly maneuverable and damage dealing fighter. able to move over obstacles and deal significant damage to mid-tier fighters. gets a special [Triple] Latching Bite which allows it to deal damage to an enemy and hold it in place for a turn. Although it can restrain enemy it is still a glass cannon for its price, so expect it to sacrifice itself if trying to stop a strong and healthy fighter from claiming an objective.
