The Coven of Devious Intent (Mordheim)

Leader of the expedition is Fabian is magister of the "Coven of Devious Intent" sent to Mordheim by the request of his patron to search for items of power. Though he is not a full practitioner of the dark arts " " has learned how to call upon the glory of Slannesh to bless one of his warriors by mutating their body instantly.

Once a pit fighter who brought hundreds of adoring fans to their knees with his artful skill with his mace. He was sold when his master fell upon bad times, dissatisfied when robbed of his former glories Gregol escaped bondage and came across the cult of pleasure. Instantly seduced by the promise of glory and other sinful delights, Gregol quickly earned the favor of the dark prince who blessed him with various mutations including a tentacle like arm.

The Masques of Delight as they are known are true devotees of the prince of pleasure, relishing every sensation of combat as they battle foes that would be even those with the stoutest of heart tremble to face. Though some may balk at their gaudy costumes and their apparent lack of skill with their weaponry none can doubt their devotion in protecting their charge.

Drawn into the cult of pleasure with dreams of great fame and glory these low born peasants follow Fabian into the very depths of the city of the damned. Armed with bows and not much else these brethren are on their road to damnation.

Attracted by the lure of rape and pillage this trio of beastmen have signed dark blood pacts with Fabian. Mutated by the powers of chaos these beasts usually wear a hood to hide their identity when traveling through the streets of Mordheim to not raise any suspicions. Too late many an opponent has confused their unnatural constitution as an elaborate costume.

This is my list for an upcoming Mordheim campaign that we are planning to run at the local store. I'm taking a big gamble on my henchmen hoping that either a beastman or dark soul can roll up "Lads got talent" result for experience making one VERY talented hero.

I am using a mix of random bits and Brettonian miniatures to make my warband as it will be the precursor to my Slannesh themed Brettonian army. After all Brettonians have so much pride and appreciation of the arts I don't see why an errant lord would not be seduced by Slannesh. There are still a few things I have to work out story wise but that is the basic groundwork.

* Since I already have everything just about converted I should be posting a few pictures by the days end in which case this post will be edited. Till then!
