Mercenary Paymaster

From Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search
A Paymaster and his bodyguard.

The Paymaster is perhaps as important as the army's General, as he is responsible for all the cash which mercenaries are frightfully keen on. [2a]

He guards this with is life – literally so because he carries the army's pay chest with him at all times. The pay chest is a heavy, iron-bound, secure-looking affair that the Paymaster brings to battle on a cart. This is pulled by a sturdy, non-excitable beast, such as a donkey, mule or compliant Tilean grandmother.[1]

So that the troops can see exactly where the Paymaster is at all times, something they find reassuring, the cart is provided with a suitably impressive flag that also serves as the army's standard.[1]
