Meet Vilitch the Curseling, the Master of Misrule

ArneSoArneSo Hamburg, Germany Registered Users Posts: 19,760

Vilitch the Curseling




"Vilitch the Curseling, also known as the Master of Misrule, and the Twisted Twin, is a mutant sorcerer of Tzeentch, permanently fused to his more muscular brother, Thomin."

Lore:
Once there was born a pair of twins; one healthy, strong and good to look upon, and one wretched, weak and tiny. Though the tribe’s leaders expected the wholesome son to become a great warrior, it was the runt Vilitch who was to change their fate forever.

The twins had a difficult birth, and their mother died soon afterwards, for it took all her strength to nourish the greedy infants. As they grew up, Thomin - the thriving twin - excelled in the hunt, and soon rose to lead the tribe’s youngest warriors. The weakling Vilitch, on the other hand, was universally despised for his ugliness and frailty. He was forced to perform his dead mother’s chores and, humiliatingly, was denied the use of a sword. Thomin used to beat Vilitch for the slightest infraction and, despite the runt’s pleas, his father would not intervene.

As they grew up, Thomin became well-muscled and athletic, quickly learning the ways of the warrior. Vilitch barely managed to scrape by as an apprentice to the tribe’s shaman, where he learnt a few meagre cantrips and a little knowledge about the powers that dwelt beyond the veil. Every night, the runtling prayed fervently to Tzeentch to reverse their fates, to make him the strong one and his brother the slave. The Great Sorcerer, who delights in anarchy, eventually agreed to Vilitch’s selfish request.

One Geheimnisnacht, when the Chaos moon passed close to the world, Vilitch awoke to find that his body and that of his sibling Thomin had melded together. His brother’s intellect had been added to his own, and there was nothing left of Thomin’s mind save for a drooling automaton enthralled to Vilitch’s command.

The grotesque fusion of warrior and runtling that staggered out of the twins’ tent glowed with the power of baleful magic. Vilitch’s budding magical abilities had been enhanced a hundredfold, and the hulking body to which his withered frame had been fused was possessed of diabolic strength. Laughing maniacally at his newfound powers, Vilitch embarked upon a bloody killing spree, sending crackling arcs of pure change into those who had looked down upon him in the past and forcing the body of Thomin to throttle any who tried to stop him. By the time the sun set, the village had been consumed by sorcerous fire and the streets ran with molten flesh.

But Vilitch’s story did not end there. The malformed sorcerer-twin hunted down all of the warrior elite of his tribe and used his dire powers to enslave their minds, making them little more than walking puppets that lived and died according to his whims. Now, wherever the Curseling plots and schemes to further his own power, a band of hard-bitten veterans marches at his side, each of them under the fearful command of the disturbing creature that they know only as the Twisted Twin.


Model:


Magical Item:
Vessel of Chaos:
Vilitch enjoys the patronage of the Great Sorcerer himself and as part of Tzeentch's fickle plans, he has gifted the Twisted Twin with a dark crucible - a powerful artefact that is able to harness and store a great reservoir of unstable magical energy.

    Oh yeah Tzeentchy bois! This dude's not my favourite Tzeentch WoC character, but easily the most deserving of DLC imo. His model is super unique and would be fun to have an actually competent melee combatant on top of being a spell caster. I think he absolutely should be the first Tzeentch DLC if we get Kairos on Launch (like we should :wink:).

    Seriously if he is not core or dlc!

    I riot!

    Since we will most likely get the Greater Daemons at launch, I expect Vilitch to come with the first Tzeentch LP. His Model would be quite expensive and his animations would also need a lot of resources.

    As an accompanying FLC I could see Egrimm van Horstmann.

    That's the best approach. I've said it a million times now, but Greater Daemons on launch, WoC as first DLCs/FLC for each Monogod. Do the complex models as DLC like Valkia/Vilitch and less elaborate as FLC like Egrimm/Arbaal or Egil. Means everyone who buys WIII gets both a DoC LL and WoC LL for free on top of the DLC ones.

    The only exceptation would be Nurgle in my opinion. Festus as the 8th edition character seems more like FLC material compared to Tamurkkhan and the Glottkin.

    I would also switch Skarr with Arbaal since he seems more fitting for Monogods visually. But thats a different topic.

    Well that qualifies for what I said. Festus has a tentacle on his model, but Tamurkhan has two unique forms (three if we count the slug itself) + his mount and the Glottkin is three models in one so both are more complex than Festus. Festus' rules are far simpler than Tamurkhan's at least so I can see him as FLC also. I could see CA doing 3 LPs with Epidemues, Glottkin and Tamurkhan tbh.

    Doesn't technically matter who the FLC is just the fact every Khorne LL is less complicated model wise than Valkia means she should be DLC and one of them FLC so we still have a playable Khorne WoC for everyone. It's about being fair to the buyer while still getting all the cool chaos characters. Everyone should have a playable DoC and WoC LL for each Monogod without having to buy DLC imo. My fav just happens to be Arbaal.

    Since GW and CA go the AoS route, I doubt we will get any god aligned LLs for WoC aka Chaos undivided. Would make no sense and also be super weird.

    Everything should be added to the Mono races.

    Boring Chaos Undivided can get Harry the Hammer or Crom.

    You seriously stillexpect a WoC 2.0 DLC with 3 LLs when monogods are core races? 😂😂😂

    Common mate... I mean seriously?? You cannot seriously believe that... 😂

    Valkia not being a Khorne LL? What??? 😂

    Sigvald should get moved. He is THE mortal champion of Slaanesh. Makes no sense to have him in Chaos Undivided.

    WoC should be Chaos Undivided. But all the God aligned LLs should go to the Monogods.

    I mean what’s the point of having Monogods when you add all god aligned characters to boring and bland Chaos Undivided?

    Yep, replace Sigvald with Crom and we can move on with our lives.
    Nagash will rule again!

    While I agree that all the mortal aligned LL should be added to the Gods races, including Sigvald, WoC is not dead, just that it will most likely transform into Chaos Undivided, with all future LL being not aligned, Like Harry the Hammer or Crom and most likely with Be'lakor at the start of game 3, I expect mechanics for them that would allow them to recruit God aligned units and been able to mix them, specially Archaon and Be'lakor fro obvious reasons.

    Yeah mate that’s exactly what I expect. That’s why meant „dead“.

    For Chaos undivided I could see a LP with:

    LL:
    - Harry the Hammer

    LH:
    - Slambo

    Lord:
    - Undivided Daemon Prince

    Units:
    - Flayerkin
    - Chaos Siege Giant
    - Chaos Ogres
    - Chimera

    Free LL:
    - Crom


    Would be a great LP.

    That would be the perfect way. Both Crom and Harry would be great LLs.

    Harry the Hammer


    I miself prefer his real name, Harald Hammerstorm, Harry the Hammer it's just a nickname, he is scary dude with some beef against the undead.

    WoC should just be renamed into Chaos Undivided to differieret them from the Monos.

    Valkia not being a Khorne LL would be ridiculous and make people angry.

    Yeah Harald Hammerstorm sounds a bit more terrifying. „The Hammer“ would still be a nice title for a LP. 😂

    He is a great character and I hope he makes it in.

    Having an Undivided LL that goes against Undead instead of Humans and Dwarfs would be quite refreshing. His campaign could be about destroying VC, TK, VCoast and if added Nagash.

    Can't wait to see Vilitch, I know there are other Tzeentch characters ppl may want first but his my favourite as a warrior of Tzeentch.

    Hopefully with Valkia and Festus, I think most likely it will be greater Deamon characters at launch tho

    Don't mock Harraldstorm

    A Lord that can terror route undead is pretty unique

    Though he does kind of run the problem most WoC characters seem to, just being another heavily armored up chaos #4.
