“By Arioch’s grace, what is that odor? I hope it is not your evening meal? “ frowned the emperor.
“Sire, those are the natural gases emitted by my test subjects at this stage of my experimentation” the good Doctor came the startled reply. The Emperor was never known to make any visit to the laboratories and so the surprised good doctor quickly added “those odors just may have a debilitating effect on the enemy”.
In fact, the good doctor and his staff were at near completion with a cross-breeding experiment of what the old grimoires called Snotlings, into a new breed of warriors, code named Beastlings; an easily trained and hardier breed than their ancestors and the doctor’s team concurred, Beastlings would be more powerful. The doctor added further, these could be produced at very little cost and in mass numbers, which pleased the Emperor. In fact experimentations were under way to create a similar, but superior leader caste for these herds, the Doctor added.
My Beastlings were indeed GW Snotlings painted to look similar to Beasts and under our rules would be based as Irregular charging infantry armed only with hand to hand weapons. Indeed cheap points wise, these would be too dim witted to be influenced by magic, so no Beast Shaman would bother supporting such a unit, but a larger beast using the back end of a mace or axe would be just as effective.
