Chaos Chariot

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Chaos Chariots are mobile fighting platforms used by the Slaves to Darkness that are well suited for warfare upon the open vistas of the realms, allowing a warrior to cross great distances at speed and using the mass of the chariot itself as a brutally effective weapon. Most are pulled by a pair of muscular steeds with fury pounding through their minds. Unlike some armies that use chariots as steady platforms to fire projectiles, Chaos Chariots smash straight into and often through the enemy lines, crushing the foe beneath their grinding wheels while the charioteers finish off the survivors with long-hafted axes and flails. Often this will be done by multiple chariots led by a skilled Exalted Charioteer with the experience of many years. The solid construction of a Chaos Chariot’s frame renders it highly resilient, easily able to withstand the blows of the enemy as it wheels around for another pass.[1]

Gorebeast Chariot

Sometimes a tribe may capture a brutish creature known as a Gorebeast to pull one of their chariots. These scaly monstrosities can be found across the realms wherever the touch of Chaos lingers and possess monstrous strength. While bonding a Gorebeast is no easy feat the natural inclination for destruction these creatures possess make them highly effective weapons. Once hitched to a chariot a Gorebeast will likely charge the first enemy that it sees, its sheer bulk and heavy fists wreaking untold havoc as the charioteer themselves simply tries to keep up with the monster's kill-count.[1]
