Plague Monk Censer Bearers

Primary tabs

Half-mad, swinging their censers violently and damning all those nearby to a pestilent demise.

Only the most insanely devoted of the Plague Monks are given the honour of wielding a plague censer - the deadliest weapon in the Clan Pestilens armoury. A plague censer is a hollow spiked metal ball attached to a length of chain. In an unholy ritual, a Plague Priest reads aloud disturbing and disease-ridden passages from the Book of Woe while a shard of Warpstone is placed inside the cruelly-spiked globe. A ladle's worth of vile contagions is added, poured over the Warpstone itself. Hellish runes glow as the devil's concoction immediately begins a slow bubble, sending tendrils of greenish vapours wafting out from the many holes in the ornate iron orb. Contact with the haze of noxious fumes emitted from a gently swaying censer will cause flesh to erupt into sores and fluid-filled blisters. When swung in the heat of battle, however, the censer emits vast billowing green clouds. Exposure to this plague fog causes horrific damage as lungs instantly fill with virulent fluid and vital organs putrefy. It would take a creature absolutely devoid of common sense to be anywhere near such a weapon, much less wield it in battle. Enter the Plague Monk Censer Bearers...

Strength in Numbers

Skaven are craven by nature but take courage when in packs of their own kind, where they move slower but enjoy the safety of numbers.


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