  • Pre-order is October 2019.

Relentless. Disciplined. Deathless. These are the Ossiarch Bonereapers – the culmination of centuries of planning by Nagash and the harbingers of his dark reign. Where the Legions of Nagash are the foot soldiers of Death and the Nighthaunt are the shock troops, the Ossiarch Bonereapers are the vanguard of a new order.

These are not risen warriors or malignant spirits – they are bespoke war-constructs forged from harvested bone and gifted the soul animus of great warriors and heroes. Alone, they have hundreds of lifetimes of experience and brutal physical prowess. Unified, they are nigh unstoppable, directed into battle by Katakros, Mortarch of the Necropolis – perhaps the greatest military strategist (living, or dead) the Mortal Realms have ever known.

Warhammer Community

Orpheon Katakros

The Mortarch of the Necropolis. Once a general of the Mortal Realms he is now a terrifying new paragon of undeath. A master of strategy, tactics and diplomacy.

Was trapped. Lady Olynder freed him in Forbidden Power and he now has a new existence in a body of ensorcelled bone.

Attendants on the base – banner, scroll, samurai warrior. You have to kill through his attendants and only fight the Mortarch once more wounds are taken. His strongest attacks are once he has suffered the most wounds (ala Skarbrand).
