When I think foreign I think Africa and when I think Africa I think Safari, I think animals, I think heyenas.

Everyone knows about the horrible laugh of heyenas. Many also know how vulnerable Ghorgons and othe rares are vulnerable to range. Heyenas are weaker but faster warhounds with a very useful ability. Their screeching laugh causes all ranged units and characters with ranged weapons a shooting penealty. Within x inches it is -1 then when the heyena hounds get within x inches it becomes -2 with a maximum of x inches for -3 shooting penalty as in you had to roll 3s to hit now you have to roll 6s.

Your thoughts and any ideas are appreciated.

They're certainly are merciless :blink:

Would be cool to have some dedicated support units that are more than just flankers/chaff. So I like the idea but just -1 max shooting penalty imo.

Thank God i'm not a buffalo. That ball attack was nasty. As for shooting penalty meet in the middle and say max -2 shooting penalty?

That's a cool idea...I like anything that brings more mobility to the Beastmen.

How about a pigataur unit? Like a boar perhaps. Similar to minotaurs with a really cool ability. The pigataurs, lets call them gore tusks, can charge in any direction with a huge range and gain armour piercing attacks when they charge. Boars are tanks and this should be shown in their stats.
