Neither fully mortal nor truly daemonic, the Wrathmongers of Khorne walk on the cusp of reality. Infused with unnatural power, these mutant berserkers are driven on by pure rage. So fierce is their fury that it boils their very blood, and surrounds the Wrathmongers in a foul coppery mist.[1a]


Musclebound and monstrous, the Wrathmongers roar bestial war cries as they pound towards their foes. As they close in on the enemy lines, they whirl their wrath-flails in lethal arcs until the air howls with their passing. Wrath-flails crunch into flesh and bone, crumpling armour like dry parchment and sending great sheets of blood spraying into the air. Rational foes might be expected to flee before such an onslaught. Yet an aura of dark madness surrounds the Wrathmongers, Khorne’s bloody gift imbuing even the most disciplined troops with manic battle-lust.[1a]

To become a Wrathmonger requires a Bloodbound warrior to undergo something called the rite of the Brass Cage. Few know the specifics of this dark ritual, but the Slaughterpriests claim that, should a warrior truly desire to undergo this monstrous transformation, Khorne will guide them to their fate. Many who depart upon this dark quest never return. For those who succeed, however, the transformation is total. Wrathmongers are swollen and malformed with daemonic power. Their blood flows furnace-hot, every thudding beat of their heart sending daemonically charged fury sluicing through their veins. So potent is this hellish ichor that it oozes from the Wrathmongers’ pores to surround them in a crimson haze. Those engulfed by these vapours feel their thoughts clouded by violent rage; an effect that is magnified tenfold should a warrior be splashed with the scorching fluid itself. The ability to tell friend from foe is eclipsed by homicidal bloodlust, brother falling upon brother with screams of murderous rage. Even in their moment of victory, whole armies have torn themselves apart under the influence of the Wrathmongers’ dark curse.[1a]


A unit of Wrathmongers has 5 or more members. They are armed with Wrath-flails.The leader of this unit is a Wrathmaster.[1b]
