Unit Description

With savage claws and malicious temperament, to rip through enemies with grim delight.

Historical Description

Harpies make their nests in the uppermost spires of Karond Kar. Some claim they are the souls of slain Witch Elves given physical form, others that they are a manifestation of Khaine. They are certainly vicious enough for either to be true. In Naggarothi lore, Harpies are considered to be an omen of good fortune, and it is claimed that if they ever deserted Karond Kar, the city would fall soon after. Harpies are similar in temperament to the Dark Elves, for they delight in tormenting their victims. Hunger drives them to follow raiding fleets for months on end, soaring patiently in the skies until battle begins.

Vanguard Deployment
