Games Workshop Warhammer AoS - Soulblight Gravelords Radukar The Beast
About this deal
Previously limited to Nagash, his Mortarchs and a select few vampire units, Deathly Invocation heals D3 wounds (or equivalent models) on Summonable units. Now it comes with every Hero unit, though it scales up in power. Key to your survival, keeping your weaker units alive. Locus of Shyish I’m still hell bent on making something that looks like fun to play against. I just don’t want to be that guy who puts a big effort into the Cursed City themed board who nobody wants to play because his army is fundamentally too weak... Here is one I tried recently: As it turns out, rumours of Radukar the Wolf’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. Now known as the Beast, his animal rage has been unleashed. He bides his time prowling Shyish and plotting revenge. Swollen with power and corrupted in form, he has retained his animal cunning, lust for power, and thirst for blood (and that wolf-pelt cloak, which honestly fits better now). Overall Legion of Night is solid. Not great, but if you like a lot of outflanking shenanigans there can be fun to be had here. Vyrkos Dynasty
Radukar the Wolf from Warhammer Quest Tutorial: How to paint Radukar the Wolf from Warhammer Quest
Saving one of the best till last here in the Necromancer. Armed with his trusty staff, Deadwalker wound sponge in Undead Minions and Vanhel’s Danse Macabre you’ve got yourself a model which will appear in a lot of lists. Vanhel’s Danse Macabre being cast on a 6 means it won’t always go off but you’ll be casting it nearly every turn and it lasts until your next hero phase so you can use it with the Skeletons mentioned later to try and pre-empt the enemy coming in and regen more than you otherwise might think you’ll be able to. Some vampires were bestial and crazed, bound to leap upon any mortal that passed them by. Others attempted a modicum of civility, building great cities to generate production lines of fresh meat. Others still lurked in the shadows, keeping their courts hidden from the forces of Chaos and human encroachment.
verwhelmed by his wrath, Radukar has undergone a terrifying transformation. The bestial monster within has come to consume the vampire almost entirely, and he now fights with a raw and brutal fury, his ferocious howls ringing through the night. Prime your new miniature ready for battles of Warhammer Age of Sigmar using the incredible Citadel Colour System. Get creative and choose from a wide variety of water-based colours which have been designed and improved over time specifically for Warhammer painting. Once painted, Radukar the Beast is ready to command the Soulblight Gravelords as a Vampire Lord and take over the Mortal Realms! Radukar The Beast Components You could use this unit to extend the aura of Legion of Blood’s Immortal Majesty, making more models run when near a Vampire. Which is kinda odd, really, changing the dynasty and heritage of unique named characters, but rules as written they’re in any dynasty or legion you so choose. At 200 points though, I don’t think even the spell or dynastic flexibility makes the unit worth it. The 60 point ‘Warhammer Underworlds warband tax’ strikes again! Battleline Our goal is to build upon and consolidate the great work already being done by other community members across various forums, reddit threads, and hobby blogs, and bring together a comprehensive library of all these useful Build Instruction booklets. Blood Knights are the next fan favourite. Elite cavalry adept at swift movement and charging enemy flanks, they’ll sit nicely in any Soulblight army, and will be relied upon to deliver the hard-hitting punches. The Kastelai Dynasty makes particularly effective use of them, fielding the knights as battleline units and boosting their damage against Hero and Monster targets.
Radukar, The Beast
Some really good synergistic traits here including A Craving for Massacre which includes the old standby of letting a general Run and Charge in the same turn. Power in their Blood lets a General benefit from Might of the Crimson Keep pictures above if they were within 6″ of the enemy that killed a unit, or if you’re in for a once a game hammer, Rousing Commander lets you give every unit within 12″ of the General Bloodied Strength and Stolen Vitality for the phase. As this is a review and not a Start Competing, we’ll hit all the notable new stuff and changes in the book rather than a comprehensive overview. By the time this review goes live, the warscrolls for these units should be uploaded on Games Workshop’s webstore so you can look for yourself if you need more in-depth coverage. One interesting change is that GW has started using multiples of 5 for points instead of 10. This will likely help add a lot of nuance to list building and will be more common going into 3rd edition Age of Sigmar. Leaders At some point Radukar crossed paths with a Human named Emelda Braskov from Mournhold and destroyed her army.  EquipmentWe’re not quite done with Warhammer Age of Sigmar news just yet. Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soul Arena You can also build this incredible kit as a mighty Vengorian Lord, a new Leader option for the Soulblight Gravelords. It used to be a command ability, meaning in theory you could do it multiple times a turn. This was easier said than done, however.

While these abilities are available for all Soulblight armies, the choice of your army’s ‘Cursed Bloodline’ will open even more experimental possibilities. All have some gameplay quirk that ties to their thematic origins, and will influence your army’s playstyle. Legion of the Night, for instance, grants +1 to your save rolls for all Deadwalker and Deathrattle units in the first turn, and lets you keep half your units to deploy as reserves. It’s a great option if you like malleable tactical plays, and want to start the battle one foot forward. In the centuries later, vast lineages formed, splitting into various dynasties and empires of distinct cultures. Some cherished the deathly powers of Nagash, revering him as a god to be worshipped, while others rejected him, only resentfully supporting his deathly crusade as they were forever cursed to do. All, however, conspired against one another, currying favour with those who would help them, before betraying any ally that stood as an obstacle to undead hegemony. As legend has it, the disc of his shield, Tuskbreaker, earned its name by chipping Gorkamorka’s tooth. We love it because it’s got a stylised picture of Kragnos on it, including the shield itself. I think a lot of the anger is coming off a string of pretty broken books, between Seraphon and Lumineth we’ve been spoiled for meta-defining books which reinvent the entire competitive scene and a course correction was bound to happen. We also don’t know what this might mean for third edition because the book is definitely written with that in mind. We’ll need to wait a few weeks for the full picture.
Lauka Vai sits at odds with the rest of the Avengorii clan. A dynasty that embraces the bestial side of vampirism, and forgoes any semblance of human civility, they’re most comfortable around Vargheists and Fell Bats. Lauka Vai, meanwhile, clings onto the noble world of knighthood she once knew, while satiating that ever-creeping thirst. It won’t contend with hyper efficient WAAC lists but in a ‘friends-on’ environment they are a lot of fun. If the warscroll used by a model says that it can fly, you can ignore other models and terrain features when you trace the path of its move across the battlefield (it flies over them). In addition, when a model that can fly starts or finishes a move on a terrain feature, instead of tracing its move across the battlefield, you can trace it ‘through the air’, as shown in the diagram below. With the GHB 2021 Radukar the Wolf is an extra hero, so you can replace him with the Beast. Then you take 20 skeletons instead of 30 and 2x 20 Zombies instead of Wolves and just summon the wolves to the table with the CA. rest as you had put it.
Has anyone figured out a list in which Radukhar’s Court is
But she’s no willing servant. A begrudging follower of Nagash, she’s always looking to usurp his godly powers, and position herself as the single ruler of Death. The Soulblight curse forever compels her loyalty to the Supreme Lord of Undeath, and ensures her attempts to break free from his thrall are doomed to failure. Taking a portion of Shyish for herself, she’s built an empire that follows her will, replete with a devoted population to do her bidding. If you’re interested in a broader overview of the fantastical factions that call the Mortal Realms home, have a read of our Age of Sigmar armies guide. But if the sight of immortal fiends doesn’t shake your bones, then read on. Also revealed in Monday’s stream was the absolute stallion of unbound malevolence that is the model for Kragnos, the End of Empires, a brand new major character in the AoS canon. Didn't spot that thanks. They probably work better in Vykros anyway but to be honest Radukar's court is not something I'm going to be looking at seriously going forward. Games Workshop has discussed revamping how battalions work so this could be something we’re missing. I’m hoping so, as the fact that some books have great ones and others do not is continuously frustrating.The Kastelai are a sort of hybrid of the old Legion of Night and the pure “Soulblight” allegiance from Legions of Nagash. They give you the terrifying Blood Knights as a battleline and the ability to outflank with them. If you want lots of strong cavalry, these are your boys. Additionally, they get access to the Might of the Crimson Keep, any time a Vampire unit (so your Heroes or Blood Knights) kills an enemy unit they gain a bonus. Since Kastelai will likely rely heavily on Vampire Heroes and Blood Knight for Battleline they will often have fewer models on the field this will help soup up the more elite army. RagnarokAngel: A lot of the response seems negative but I think they’re overblown. The book is…it’s fine? I don’t hate it, and I was a huge fan of Legions of Nagash and just wanted this book brought into the new edition. I agree with a lot of the criticisms I’m hearing that it’s not creative enough, as many of the abilities are just rehashed from Legions of Nagash but that’s kind of what I wanted. I think some positive changes were made in terms of rearranging the subfactions, how summoning works and updating the spells.
