A Warrior of Ulric.

Warrior Priests of Ulric are mighty zealots of the Ulrician Faith and the Cult of Ulric.

History

In provinces such as Middenland and Nordland, Ulric is worshipped above even Sigmar, for he is a god that represents the rugged north and was worshipped by the mortal Sigmar himself.

In the North of the Empire life is harsh; the winters are freezing, the soil is poor and the forests crawl with Goblins and Beastmen. Ulric is the states patron because he is as harsh as the land itself, and the strength and independance he expects his from his followers hardens the people to the austerity of their existence.

Ulric's Warrior Priests reflect this quality. All Clerics of Ulric are ferocious fighters, for entry into the cult of Ulric is forbidden to those who are weak. This is because Ulric is a warrior first and foremost, expecting his followers to meet problems head on and by force of arms whenever possible. In battle the Priests of Ulric are the embodiment of their god, swinging their axes and swords and crying oaths to their enemies with the ferocity of the Wolf God himself. The fighters around them are filled with courage, and the faith and strength of the Warriors of Ulric is indomitable. The Priests could be empowered with the divine fury of their god, calling upon the chill of winter or entering a furious rage to slaughter their enemies.
