Unit Description

Stripped of their beauteous forms by the goddess Atharti, Medusae know nothing but pain, torment, regret and anguish.

Historical Description

Bloodwrack Medusae are horrid half-snake creatures that have served the whim and desires of Morathi, the Hag Queen of Naggaroth for many thousands of years. It is said that they were Sorceresses of Ghrond who used their magics and blood-feasting rituals to become more beautiful than even the gods. In so doing, they came to the attention of the goddess Atharti, Goddess of Pleasure, who is vain beyond measure and suffers no mortal competition. In retribution, she stripped the upstart mortals of their beauteous forms and caged them in pain-wracked, serpentine bodies. Even this punishment she deemed insufficient, and so reduced their minds to be little more than those of beasts. Atharti left only one sliver of awareness in her victims, enough that they might always remember with torment the beauty and power they had once possessed.


Murderous Prowess

Slaughter! There is no greater glorification of Khaine, the God of Murder, and no more popular form of worship amongst the Dark Elves. It is through killing that Dark Elves rise above other beings. Once engulfed in enough bloodshed, they will often feel their murderous prowess increase, as if Khaine himself was guiding the blades of his disciples.

Murderous Prowess Indicator

Once enough blood has been shed, the Dark Elves’ murderous prowess increases, as if Khaine himself was guiding his disciples' blades!


Can Cause Fear

This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.

Can Cause Terror

This unit can cause terror, making its melee target rout for a short time. Units that cause terror are immune to terror and fear themselves.

Strengths & Weaknesses


Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that affects a large area.

Armour-Piercing Missiles

The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.

Decent Melee Combatant

Despite being primarily a missile unit or spellcaster, this unit can also hold its own ground when fighting in melee.

Causes Terror

This unit can cause terror, making its melee target rout for a short time. Units that cause terror are immune to terror and fear themselves.
