A new hero of the Legion of Azgorh rises today. Shar’tor the Executioner is a malevolent and powerful warrior-priest of Hashut, the favoured headsman of the Dark God, and a towering and powerful Bull Centaur.

Download the Warscroll for Shar’Tor the Executioner right here!

Shar’tor has got some pretty mean abilities and his Darktide Axe is packing 5 attacks that hit and wound on 3+, have a -2 rend and cause 3 Damage! With some hot dice that’s enough to wipe small units and to threaten big monsters as well. He’s also go a few other tricks up his metaphorical sleeves so watch out if you see him on the table-top. Shar’Tor is up for pre-order now.

Shar’tor the Executioner £70

Shar’tor the Executioner is a malevolent warrior-priest of Hashut. This trampling bull centaur carries the terrifying Darktide Axe, a cruel weapon steeped in untold years of slaughter upon which burn vile runes of hatred and malice. Shar’tor also wears Hashut’s sacred Mask of the Executioner, marking him as his dark god’s favoured headsmen, empowered to call out his god’s name with such a malign force, that the sound alone is enough to kill the weak of heart, just as it fills those loyal to Hashut with unholy wrath.

Shar’tor the Executioner is a Chaos Hero of the Legion of Azgorh. His command ability gives nearby units a chance to ignore wounds, and the mask he wears both inspires other Bull Centaurs in your army to charge and gore your foes, and brings death to the enemy.

Shar’tor the Executioner is the first model in the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Character Series. This incredibly detailed model is packaged in a stylish presentation box and includes a detailed 105mm oval base, depicting the ruins of battle that Shar’tor tramples beneath his hooves.

Bull Centaur Execution Herd £282

A stampeding herd of bull centaurs will strike fear in the hearts of any who stand before them, and soon trample them with their iron-shod hooves. Led into battle by a might Taur’ruk, when joined by Shar’tor the Executioner the herd is filled with the unholy wrath of Hashut and charges with wild rage.

This collection brings together a Bull Centaur army from the Legion of Azgorh. It includes 11 models; Shar’tor the Executioner; a Bull Centaur Taur’ruk; and three sets of three Bull Centaur Renders.

 

It’s been eons since the Chaos Dwarf (Chaos Duardin?) have gotten a proper release from Games Workshop. Maybe that’s one of the reasons this army is so interesting – The Chaos Dwarf army is part of the lore but it’s been on the outskirts of it for so long that they are more of a mystery.

Regardless, someone at Forge World must be a fan of the army and keeping them alive and well because they have some really great models. They also have an entire army list as well so if you want to see what the Legion of Azgorth can do check out their free PDF here.

    As the first GW minis I ever purchased (I accidentally thought they were Chaos proper, haha), I always wished Chaos Dwarves would make a return to the game. From the style to the background, they were just awesome. That said, I’m glad FW still produces models for them, if only I could afford them :(.

    • Ross Allan

      We’re promised more, too. Defo have a sniff around your local AoS scene – the games I’m seeing are a smaller scale than the 8th add games I used to see, so a Legion force may be cheaper than you thought.

      • Bran D

        One castellan (and you get a standard bearer in the command set they sell), one Daemonsmith (you get two plus a castellan in the set they sell), one bag of 10 Ironsworns for battleline (more if you want beefier lines), then a Dreadquake Mortar. So £159…not too bad and that is more than likely under 1000 points (an assumption).

  • Heinz Fiction

    I think thats the first AoS model i actually like. Looks good!

    • benn grimm

      Probably cause its not originally an aos model…

      • ChubToad

        But now it is.

  • Kritarion

    Looked at his warscroll. Scary stuff. He has a one-time use ability that gives each enemy model in a 12″ radius a mortal wound on a 4+ (one roll for each model). He is the duke of the nuke.

  • Randy Randalman

    Gorgeous model and mean attacks. I may welcome the Chaos Dwarfs to my already massive Chaos Alliance, if he gets a points value.

    • Frank Underwood

      Same here! These bull centaurs are looking tempting indeed

  • cudgel

    This is an amazing model but I can’t help but feel that it could have done more with the theme i.e. I love me some chaos dwarf beards.

    • Bran D

      From what I hear they are moving in a new direction with the bull centaurs design.

      • cudgel

        QQ I love that sumerian look…

  • J Mad

    If Chaos Dwarfs come back and AoS with points becomes popular, I will have to play them 🙂

    • Lord Elpus

      Legion of Azgorth, Forgeworld site for the rules😊 the points are coming later…

  • I have an almost complete FW Chaos Dwarf army. This is definitely going into it.

  • Countdiscount

    Back in the day I made a few units of Chaos Dwarves by kit bashing Dwarves and Chaos Warriors. I might have to start another army like that now. This model is beautiful 🙂

  • Bran D

    Lackluster rules but great looking model. Basically a Tur’uk with +1 W and bravery with a command ability you will never use (if you are going just bull centaurs then cool, or have a magewrath throne, but the Castellans command ability is far superior, especially since it helps all units in your army do more damage…even the centaurs.). If you do bring the centaurs then the Taur’uks command ability and Shar’tors once per game ability will net you a run then charge with a reroll distance…not bad but going to assume a huge investment in points when they come.

    He uses the same axe as his little big brother with the addition of 6s do and extra attack, which is very nice but not huge.

    Really just another “big fish” in a pond of smaller big fish.

    Don’t get me wrong I already preordered it 😉 just a few comments on how I feel he might impact the game or lists for chaos dwarf players…small ripples…I’d rather field more artillery 🙂

  • Commissar Molotov

    I admit I sharted a little when I saw Shar’tor’s price tag.

  • Andrew

    Now THAT is a good looking model!

  • edendil

    Now that guy looks pretty cool. Nice paintjob too.

  • Old zogwort

    I love of the angle of the unpainted mini makes it look like he is caring a hand bag

  • am1t

    Why does it have 5 legs? … Oh wait never-mind, I guess why they say ‘hung like a bull’

    • Bran D

      My father is Welsh and my mother is Hungarian…I guess that makes me Wellhung…
