Malus Darkblade, a Dark Elf possessed by a Daemon

Malus Darkblade is one of the most iconic Dark Elves in the fantasy Warhammer universe. Why? Well, because a Daemon resides within him.

Deathmaster Snikch, a genius assassin and subterfuge master

Then we have Deathmaster Snikch. This guy is like an elite ninja Skaven that is especially good with deception and assassination and things like that. Together with his loyal operatives, they are a notorious faction that many fear. By using their unique mechanic, Shadowy Dealings, any Eshin character can perform sinister actions against their opponents with a 100% success rate. Steal money, spy, start rebellions and perform devastating assassinations. Then we have the Greater Clan Contracts. When a Greater Clan offers you a job, you do it and get a lot of money, food, and an increased reputation with that clan. If someone has a dirty job to do, they hire Snikch to do it. These guys are basically deadly ninja saboteurs which are extraordinarily good at backstabbing and messing up your plans. Deathmaster Snikch comes with the following units:

  • Master Assassin (Lord)
  • Eshin Sorcerer (Hero)
  • Eshin Triads
  • Poisoned-Wind Mortar
  • Warp-Grinder Weapon Teams
  • The Avalanche Mortar (Regiment of Renown)
  • Viskrin’s Death Squad (Regiment of Renown)
  • Ishka’s Triads (Regiment of Renown)
