Gotrek and Felix

Gotrek Gurnisson is certainly the most, or the least, successful Slayer in this age of the world. His quest to find death at the hands of a worthy opponent has yet to be fulfilled, but in his search he has slain monsters, Skaven, Orcs, Beastmen and Goblins beyond count. His adventures have taken him from the Old World across the Western Sea to the lost continent of Lustria. No one knows why he shaved his head and took the Slayer’s Oath and no one has ever had the courage to ask him.

Felix was a student at the University of Altdorf but was expelled from the University for accidentally killing a fellow student in a duel. He became a street corner agitator and was one of the instigators of the Window Tax march, which ended in a bloodbath. Felix was saved by Gotrek, and since he was being pursued by the authorities and knew the Dwarfish attitude to oathbreakers, he had no choice but to leave the city in the company of the Slayer and thereby begin his most extraordinary adventures.

Felix Jaeger455442538-

Gotrek and Felix are a special kind of Dogs of War unit and can be included as a Rare choice in any army of Dwarfs, Empire, Bretonnians (although they are not normally allowed Dogs of War) or Dogs of War. They must be fielded exactly as detailed below, and may not be given any additional equipment or magic items.

Points: 455 (Felix 162 points, Gotrek 313 points)
Weapons: Gotrek carries his Rune Axe, Felix is armed with the Wyrmslayer Blade .
Armour: Felix wears light armour.


Skirmishers. Gotrek and Felix form a skirmishing unit of two models. Even though they must remain together both are characters and all the rules for characters apply (challenges, targeting restrictions, victory points, etc). They can move freely like other skirmishers, and have a 360° arc of sight.

Gotrek. Gotrek Gurnisson is the most accomplished Slayer in the Warhammer world, having felled mighty creatures from the Badlands to the Realms of the Chaos. As a Daemon Slayer he is Unbreakable and while he lives so is Felix. In addition, Gotrek’s Strength is always equal to the Toughness of his target, unless it would normally be higher. This means he always wounds on a minimum of 4+. His modified Strength is used for armour save modifiers. Note that for Gotrek there is no maximum limit to how high his Strength can be increased with this skill. As a Dwarf, Gotrek hates all Greenskins, and pursues and flees 2D6-1". Whilst Gotrek is alive, Felix may only flee and pursue 2D6-1" as well. Note: Gotrek is also relentless (may march within 8" of the enemy) although as a skirmisher he may already do this.

Gotrek’s Axe. Gotrek’s mighty Rune Axe is empowered with potent spells of cutting and cleaving. For each of Gotrek’s initial Attacks that hit, he gains one extra Attack. Roll to hit with his first Attacks and then allocate and roll to hit for any bonus Attacks he gains. In addition, any opponent with Toughness 5 or more who suffers a wound (after saves, etc) loses 2 Wounds. No armour saves are allowed against Gotrek’s axe.

Wyrmslayer Blade. This enchanted sword thirsts for the blood of Dragons, urging its wielder to confront these monstrous beasts and imbuing them with unnatural ferocity and speed.

The Wyrmslayer Blade adds +2 to Felix’s Attacks. In addition, if there is a Dragon within his charge range you must declare a charge against it. Against Dragons, the Wyrmslayer blade allows Felix to re-roll missed attacks and failed rolls to wound.

Gotrek’s Doom. The Dwarf Ancestor Gods seem to have some plan for Gotrek, driving him towards an unknown doom. Since swearing his oath to accompany the Slayer, Felix has also been bound into this mysterious destiny. Although this means that they are forever wandering, unable to settle, they are also able to survive battles that see thousands of others die. To represent this, Gotrek and Felix have a 4+ Ward save and Magic Resistance (2) – note this is two Dispel dice for the both of them, not two each. However, Gotrek may never join a unit, and so while he still lives Felix may not join a unit either. If Gotrek is removed as a casualty his Doom has no further effect on Felix.
