Some of the latest sets to join Games Workshop’s Warhammer Age of Sigmar are the Regiments of Renown. Supplied as new special boxed sets – or buildable if you have the correct forces – the Regiments have unique abilities. Here are the rules for Regiments of Renown – Veremord’s Shamblers.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar lore is rich and varied and that’s no different for the Regiments of Renown.
Crypt-keepers dread the coming of Veremord. This foul student of necromancy has a talent for appropriating and twisting the wards that protect the dead to enhance his rotting minions. Just as dangerous is the smoke that billows from his Corpse Cart’s brazier. Which has been enchanted to corrode a foe’s arcane defences.
If your army has a Death general but is not a Soulblight Gravelords army, you can include this regiment of renown. If you do so, no other allied units can be included in your army. You can include this regiment of renown in your army even if its points value exceeds the amount allowed for allied units.
Legend Among Graverobbers: Veremord’s reputation as a graverobber is unsurpassed. The Corpse Cart in this regiment of renown has the Hero keyword.
Repurposed Wards: Veremord has long studied methods to unpick the sanctifying wards employed by many Shyishans to safeguard the dead, scavenging their energies to bolster himself and his minions.
The Deadwalker Zombies unit in this regiment of renown has a ward of 6+ while it is wholly within 12″ of the Corpse Cart in this regiment of renown.
The Corpse Cart in this regiment of renown has a ward of 5+ while it is wholly within 12″ of the Deadwalker Zombies unit in this regiment of renown.
Vitiating Vapours: The cursed flames that billow from Veremord’s Corpse Cart can wither even the staunchest arcane defences. Subtract 1 from ward rolls for enemy units within 12″ of the Corpse Cart in this regiment of renown.
Death General Specific Rules
If your army has a Death general but is not a Soulblight Gravelords army, you can include the Veremord’s Shamblers regiment of renown.
