Own a Chaos army in need of further bolstering? You’ll want to take a look at Games Workshop’s new Warhammer Age of Sigmar mercenary groups, 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 – Hargax’s Pit-Beasts.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar lore is rich and varied and that’s no different for the Regiments of Renown.
Hargax once ruled the gladiatorial Pit of Shattered Spines with a fist of iron. Even when overthrown by a younger rival, the ogroid was not slain. Determined to reclaim his throne, Hargax – now older and wiser – seeks a means of evening the odds. He roams the lands searching for monsters to break into submission.
If your army has a Chaos general but is not a Slaves to Darkness 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.
Bestial Domination: Their will crushed through brutal violence, Hargax’s pit-beasts obey his every bellowed demand.
Once per phase, the Ogroid Myrmidon in this regiment of renown can issue the All-out Attack or All-out Defence command to the Fomoroid Crusher or Mindstealer Sphiranx in this regiment of renown without a command point being spent.
The Worthiest Stock: Only the most fearsome creatures are worthy of the gladiatorial menagerie Hargax seeks to corral, and so he constantly looks for opportunities to test them against rival beasts on the battlefield.
At the end of the charge phase, you can pick either the Fomoroid Crusher or the Mindstealer Sphiranx in this regiment of renown and 1 enemy Monster within 3″ of it. If you do so, roll a dice. On a 3+, the strike-last effect applies to both units you picked in the following combat phase.
