Unit Description

Skin Wolves take to the battlefield to glut themselves on the raw and dripping gore of their victims.

Historical Description

Many are the dark horrors of twisted flesh and nightmares made real that the Ruinous Powers have visited upon the world; few though are as strange as the Skin Wolves. Witch-cursed and Chaos-tainted, these creatures are half-feral and subject to savage appetites. They were previously men and women who carried within them the tainted blood of the mutated beast, which was somehow unleashed. Half-insane with insatiable hunger, a Skin Wolf has shredded flaps of skin and chunks of bloody gristle clinging to it, left behind by the unfortunate individual who the fully-formed humanoid wolf-thing ripped itself from. It is these clinging shrouds of skin that give the beasts their common name.



Some warriors care not for their own personal safety and so work themselves into a whirlwind of destruction and mindless violence!


There are beings and creatures that can mend bone and knit flesh at an incredible rate. A mighty boon, but one stunted by fire.


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.

Hide (forest)

This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.


This unit ignores speed and combat penalties caused by terrain and can move through trees.

Strengths & Weaknesses


Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.


Units with frenzy cause more damage while their leadership is high.


Regeneration allows a unit to heal while in battle. Fire is known to harm this healing process, so be warned that flaming attacks will cause more damage to units with Regeneration.
