The Threat Beneath
Beneath the surface of their former empire lies a hidden threat that few remember. Waiting only for the right moment to strike, these creatures are as treacherous as they are ruthless, infesting any nook or cranny they can find. Empowered with diabolical technology and hordes of pestilent beasts, their greatest wish is always to reinstate the inescapable dominion of the Vermin Swarm.
Long ago, Sunna was able to unite the tribes of men and overthrow Vermin supremacy over Avras and most of Vetia. Since that time, the rat-people have laid low, but they have been far from idle. Their great Houses, heritage from an Avrasi past, are divided and pursuing their own ambitions for now, yet every one of them is a threat to the nations above. If the Swarm’s political and religious institutions could come into alignment, who knows what devastation they might wreak.
The hordes of the Vermin Swarm are an army that is based on its huge blocks of infantry and using characters to bring discipline to its masses. Occasionally these forces will be accompanied by a mighty Vermin Demon to lead their legions into battle. Their armies are supported small shooting units, other specialist units, as well as war machines.
Lore of Vermin Swarm
The Vermin Yoke
Long centuries did we suffer under the vermin yoke, and long were the great shrines of Avras left de-filed, before Sunna finally returned to rekindle the flame of human strength.Coming as the mightiest of warriors, one whom kings and rulers followed naturally as disciples, Sunna lead our great crusade against the many enemies we so recently confronted. Always re-member the great peril of our species, and the danger of annihilation we faced, before the God-dess drove our armies through their defences and finally reclaimed Avras as our own. The Adver-sary was slain by her hand. Friends, never forget the joy of these tidings! Sunna has liberated the holy city of Men and Women, and humans once more dwell among the mighty avenues, and once more pray in the Holy Sepulchre, where lies her sword Sonnstahl! Our task now is that of preach-ing the blessed truth of the Goddess to those who were not there to bear witness.
