Some recent threads got me thinking about homebrewed lists for casual play. I picked Beastmen to have a go at, as I own the minis. I think there would be scope to homebrew other lists, particularly Orcs & Goblins.
I’ve used existing units from a range of lists, rather than inventing any of my own units/stats. These would all count as primary core units for inspiring, spells etc.
This list is trying to recreate a specifically Beastmen list, not any version of Mantic’s The Herd. You could use Herd with allies, Orcs or Northern Alliance to field Beastmen but these options still have limitations and gaps in the lists.
Tribal warriors - beastmen
Spirit walkers - beastmen ahw
Longhorns - bestigor
Tribal spears - ungors
Tribal trappers - ungors bows
Guardian brutes - minotaurs
Gur panthers - warhounds
Centaur chief - centigor hero
Great chieftan - beastlord
Forces of Nature units:
Bray striders - centigor
Bray hunters - centigors bows
Druid - shaman (mounted=centigor)
Gladewalker druid - great shaman (mounted=centigor)
Gore chariots - beastmen chariots
Krudger on gore chariot - beastlord on chariot
Kraken - cygor/ghorgon
Ogre warlord - minotaur lord (prob with Chalice of Wrath - Fury)
Let me know if you’d use different units, or if I’ve missed anything. Hopefully, this might inspire some other custom lists.
