Horn and hoof, power is there. Not feeble smoothskin, clumsy greenskin, wicked elf-swine. Gor is strong. Gor is true. Gor shall kill all, slay all for the gods.
When the gateway above the poles of the Warhammer world exploded, Chaos entered the world. Beasts mutated with human and the Beastmen were born. Since then the Beastmen and other monsters roam the planet. They can be found everywhere in the world, in the forest and other dark and untammed places like the Drakwald forest and Troll Country. They are known to include Mutants and peoples touched by Chaos. They played a role in the Storm of Chaos and helped Archaon in his invasion of The Empire. A particularly hated foe of the Beastmen are the Wood Elves. Unbeknowest to most races, a secret war is constantly waged between the Elven folk of Athel Loren and the bestial hordes.
Often in an eager attempt to reach the enemy the fight amongst themselves and rivalries can emerge. There are several types of Beastmen, but they can be divided into two rough categories. Firstly there are the Ungors who are the most numerous, they are about the size of a man and are cruel twisted creatures. Secondly there are the gigantic Gors. These large Beastmen are lesser in number but more brutish and stronger warriors.
Beastmen are the most numerous of the creatures of Chaos. The numbers of Beastmen can only be guessed at, but some fear that they outnumber mankind. They pose a persistent threat to the surrounding areas of their camps. Often they raid small hamlets and farmsteads, these attacks are often carried out under the cover of darkness, where the inhabitants are slain and their buildings razed to the ground.
Beastmen are mutated monstrosities that infest the forests of the Empire: massive horned creatures with an inhuman resistance to pain. The destruction of Mordheim brought many Beastmen into the ruined city to prey upon the survivors. And the Beastmen have come to Mordheim to find the shards of the meteorite are seen as holy objects, which can be sold to the powerful Beastlords and revered Shamans.
