WELCOME TO THE ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF A OUR SERIES WHERE WE WILL BE FOCUSING ON ONE OF THE EXCLUSIVE CHAOS WARBANDS FROM WARCRY. THIS TIME WE WILL BE DISCUSSING THE UNTAMED BEASTS.
The Untamed Beasts are one of the warbands in the core box for Warcry and hail from Jagged Savannah in Ghur, the Realm of Beasts. The Realm of Beasts is a land of danger where only the strong survive. Everything in this realm is dangerous and likely trying to kill you. The Untamed Beasts hate civilization and everything to do with it. The structures of civilization are so hated by them that some leaders will kill members of his tribe to avoid the risk of feeling loyalty because even that is too strict.
The members of Untamed Beasts are closer to wild animals and are only interested in things that can be taken from the corpse of a predator. They are also the only faction that, by default, begins with a creature of Chaos with them- a Rocktusk Prowler! This lion is one of the biggest powerhouses in this faction’s arsenal, especially if it is within 4 inches of the Beastmaster. With an 8 inch movement, 20 wounds and high damage output it will be a priority target for your opponents.
Overall this faction has it all. It has faster units, strong attacks and decent defense. The only downside is that the more basic fighters are a bit on the weak side. Most competitive lists include two and sometimes even three of the Rocktusk Prowlers. This requires purchasing either a spare Warcry boxset or the Age of Sigmar boxset for the same warband which comes with twice as many sprues as the Warcry version. The AoS version is the best way if you are planning on running three as it comes with two of them.
