Thane Godri GoblinSlayer:
Hobgoblin Khan Armies of the East
SPECIAL RULES FOR ALL HOBGOBLINS
Animosity: Hobgoblins never get along and thus are usually at each others throats even in the midst of battle.
At the beginning of your movement phase each of your units must test for animosity. Warmachines and chariots do not test for Animosity. On a 2-6 they pass, however on a 1 they fail. If they fail roll a D6 and follow the chart below.
1 Is this a Battle, Run.
The unit flees back 3 inches, all normal rules for fleeing apply. On the next turn if the unit who fled previously pass their animosity test then their boss has organized them and they may move the next turn.
The hobgoblins are at each others throats and have began to fight. the unit may not move or shoot this turn while the boss tries to get them under control.
6 They are Asking For It
The unit automatically charges the closest friendly unit. If they reach the unit workout combat as normal.
Eternal Hatred: The hobgoblins remeber the how the orcs and goblins almost exterminated their whole race and have hated them ever since.
Hobgoblins get rerolls to hit in the first round of combat and must always persue fleeing greenskin units.
SPECIAL RULES FOR CERTAIN HEROES AND UNITS
HOBGOBLIN KHAN AND HOBGOBLIN BIG BOSS
Hobgoblin Khans are the warlords and kings of hobgoblin society. They are the bosses and leaders of their less tougher brethren. Khans are the largest in hobgoblin scociety and are thus far better fighters and stronger than the average hobgoblins.
Khan’s and Big Bosses are the best fighters (for hobgoblins) and are at the top of the food chain. Each Khan or Big Boss usually owns his own strip of land and has an army. Successful Big Bosses may move up to become Khan’s and own their own kingdom and several armies.
QUELL ANIMOSITY: Units who have to test for animosity within 3 inches of a Hobgoblin Khan or Hobgoblin Big Boss do not have to test Animosity.
WARLORD: Hobgoblin Khans (Big Bosses do not count) make any unit they join stubborn.
LARGE WOLF: Large wolves are the pack leaders of regular wolves and are far more larger and fierce. A large wolf is frenzied and has an extra attack for a total of 3 attacks.
Hobgoblins love killing their enemies at a distance and those who don’t like to use ranged weapons move on to bigger and more destructive things like magic. Their are few hobgoblin shamans, because most die while trying to prefect the art of destructive magic.
The few hobgoblins who rise to become shamans are often outcasts of their tribe or have no tribe at all do to the destructive effects of magic (and often practicing on their fellow tribesmen). Shamans are also well paid by Khans and Big Bosses, even a shaman apprentice who ownly knows simple (but still destructive) spells are handsomely paid.
Shamans are often not many because they are usually killing each other due to wanting to be the best. Shamans master the dangerous lore known as Mean Green Magic. It is much like the Waaagh! lore, however it is not as destructive and it benefits hobgoblin troops, it doesn’t kill them like orc magic!
MEAN GREEN LORE: Shamans and shaman lords choose their spells from the Mean Green Lore.
MAD HORROR: A mad horror is a crazed daemonic beast that shamans use as mounts to show their mastery of magic. A mad horror causes terror, is immune to terror itself, and it is stupid. It’s stats are, M8 WS2 BS0 S5 T2 W2 I2 A2 LD4
HOBGOBLIN SNEAKY GIT MASTER AND SNEAKY GITS
Hobgoblin sneaky gits are the equivalent of assassins, every hobgoblin Khan or big boss has at least one trusted assassin to deal with rivals and enemies. The sneaky gits have their own tribe called the Sneaky Gits Guild which is ruled by the legendary Sneaky Git Master Gorgut BackStabba.
The guild is split up into six rival assassin houses who regularly compete against each other in tournaments and other dangerous competitions to prove who is the best. Gorgut’s house is currently in the lead, much to the other Assassin Lord’s Annoyance.
To become a sneaky git you must be an especially sneaky hobgoblin and very skilled with a blade. To become a house leader you must slay the current one in a duel or treachery. Gorgut has been attacked many times, but his legendary sneak team has protected him so far…
SNEAKY GIT MASTER RULES
TRAINED TO KILL: The Sneaky Git Master has been trained to kill since he was a little git, he has perfected it and has the Killing Blow ability along with Poisined Attacks.
SNEAK MASTER: A hobgoblin sneaky git is an assassin and used to blending in, you may hide one Sneaky Git Master in any hobgoblin infantry unit. The sneak master can choose two options when the unit he is in is charged or gets into combat some way, Move to the Front Rank to battle the enemy. Or sneak out the side of the unit and charge the enemy in the rear or continue on his own way.
If the unit you are hiding you Sneaky Git Master in flees, then the Git Master automatically flees out the side and moves on his own for the rest of the game.

LAP AROUND: Sneaky Gits always lap around.
