Little is known of the mysterious First of the Vyrkos. When she and her lupine packs hunt, the enemy is overcome by a storm of savage claws and slavering fangs, their champions hideously transfigured by the cruel and ancient matriarch.

Belladamma Volga, First of the Vyrkos, is armed with a Timeworn Scimitar. WIZARD:
This unit can attempt to cast
in your hero phase
and attempt to unbind
2 spells in the enemy hero phase.
If this unit is included in a Soulblight Gravelords army, it is treated as a general
even if it is not the model picked to be the army’s general.
This unit’s wolves are armed with Lupine Fangs and Claws.
First of the Vyrkos: Belladamma wields all manner of strange and potent sorceries known only to the elders of the Vyrkos. She uses these to bind packs of Dire Wolves to her service, creatures that will unthinkingly sacrifice themselves to protect their savage mistress.
Add 1 to casting
and unbinding rolls
for this unit. In addition, if this unit is within 3" of any friendly VYRKOS DIRE WOLVES
units, before you allocate a wound or mortal wound
to this unit, or instead of making a ward roll
for a wound or mortal wound that would be allocated to this unit, roll a dice. On a 3+, that wound or mortal wound is allocated to 1 of those friendly units instead of this unit.
The Hunger: Those who bear the Soulblight curse constantly crave blood and are empowered by feasting upon their foes.
Each time this unit fights, after all of its attacks have been resolved, you can heal
up to a number of wounds allocated to this unit equal to the number of wounds and mortal wounds
caused by those attacks that were allocated to enemy units (to a maximum of 6).
Lycancurse: Singling out a choice foe, Belladamma’s gnarled hand curls into a fist, lupine eyes watching as her victim’s bones are crushed and warped into a form more pleasing to her.
Lycancurse is a spell that has a casting value
of 7 and a range of 18". If successfully cast, pick 1 enemy unit within range and visible to the caster. That unit suffers D3 mortal wounds
If any models in that unit were slain by this spell, before removing the last slain model
, you can add 1 unit of Dire Wolves
to your army. The number of models in the new unit must be equal to the number of models in the enemy unit that were slain by this spell. Set up the new unit within 3" of the slain model’s unit, and then remove the slain model from play.
Under a Killing Moon: The skies clear as a full and eerie moon rises to illuminate the battlefield. A synchronised howl echoes far and wide as the bestial warriors of the Vyrkos unleash their rage.
Under a Killing Moon is a spell that has a casting value
of 6 and a range of 24". If successfully cast, until your next hero phase
, if the unmodified hit roll
for an attack made with a melee weapon by a friendly VYRKOS
unit wholly within range of the caster is 6, that attack scores 2 hits on the target instead of 1. Make a wound roll
and save roll
for each hit.
