Chainrasp Hordes are one of the main battleline troop choices for your Games Workshop Warhammer Age of Sigmar Nighthaunt army. They are most effective in units of 10 or more, I personally think they go great with a unit of twenty of them alongside some Hexwraiths or Glaivewraith Stalkers. You always want to upgrade one of the models in a unit of Chainrasp Hordes to the Dreadwarden unit leader as that model gets and extra attack with its Malignant Weapon and the unit gets bravery ten instead of bravery 6. So leaving him till the last model you pull as a casualty is an important tip to remember. Units of ten or models of Chainrasp Hordes also get to re-roll wound rolls of a one.
Chainrasp Hordes are available in a unit of twenty in the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soul Wars starter set and in their own box of easy-to-build models that builds a unit of ten. Each model gets two attacks hitting on fours and wounding on fours doing one damage for each wound. They can then be buffed by the Knight of Shrouds on Ethereal Steed’s extra attack and a re-roll on failed hits from Crawlocke the Jailor or a Spirit Torment from the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soul Wars starter set. Being able to roll sixty plus dice worth of attacks even hitting and wounding on fours can be devastating to just about any unit they go up against. Easily dishing out 10-15 wounds a turn on average per combat round. Chainrasp Hordes are a cheap and effective battleline troops choice for your Warhammer Age of Sigmar Nighthaunt army and are an automatic buy when building a new Nighthaunt army. I highly recommend buying the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soul Wars starter set to get a nice unit of 20 of them along with all the other amazing units that come in the box for your Nighthaunt army. As it is an amazing value for anyone starting out in the hobby or wanting to build a new Nighthaunt or Stormcast Eternals army.
