Vandus and Korghos: New Rules for Classic Heroes

Great news for Warhammer Age of Sigmar fans! Today, we’re announcing Warscrolls for two legendary heroes you may already own, as well as making them available separately for the first time. Dedicated Warhammer Age of Sigmar fans know that the Mighty Lord of Khorne and Lord-Celestant on Dracoth from the starter set are storied heroes in their own right; Korghos Khul and Vandus Hammerhand. The former is the savage leader of the Goretide, while the latter is one of Sigmar’s most talented commanders, leading a Warrior Chamber of the Hammers of Sigmar.

Throughout the Realmgate Wars, Khul and Hammerhand have distinguished themselves as rich characters, driven by the machinations of their masters and a very real personal enmity between the two. Vandus and Khul now have rules that reflect their prowess, rewarding narrative players with a reflection of how the realms have grown and changed in, and giving tactical players two new commanders with a host of new abilities to bring to their games. Warscrolls for both models can be found in the box and are available to download here.

Vandus Hammerhand Warscroll:

Korghos Khul and Bloodsecrator Warscrolls:

Vandus Hammerhand provides a host of benefits to a Hammers of Sigmar army. You’ll be able to slot him into your battalions easily in the place of a Lord-Celestant, and he behaves much like he always has. As master of the Hammerhands, Vandus makes all Hammers of Sigmar within 24” of him ignore the effect of Battleshock, making him a valuable tactical lynchpin, while his command ability allows him to super-charge one nearby unit by gifting them bonus attacks. He’s lethal in combat too – his Tempestos Hammer, Heldensen, hits harder than before, and he retains his faithful Dracoth, Calanax.

Korghos Khul is likewise improved and blends Khornate ferocity with a tribal warlord’s cunning. Capable of piling in an enormous 8” and attacking every Hero phase, few will be safe from the lord of the Goretide. Khul’s Gorelord ability is upgraded to allow him to charge into combat alongside his troops. Khul’s Flesh Hound, Grizzlemaw, still allows him a measure of magical defence against spellcasters with his Brass Collar. Khul is also boxed with a faithful Bloodsecrator – with their powers combined, even the smallest Khorne force becomes a dangerous pack of blood-mad killers. Either model makes a fine accompaniment to Thunder & Blood or as the centrepiece to an existing Stormcast Eternals or Khorne Bloodbound collection.

Pre-order Vandus Hammerhand and Korghos Khul from Games Workshop, and add these heroes to your own collection today.
