Wolf Rider

From Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search
A group of bow-armed wolf riders.

The Wolf Riders originated when Goblins found that they are small enough to fit on a wolf, but big enough to control it[1]. Usually, this cavalry employs its unrivalled speed to pillage ahead of the main army, always on a lookout for any enemy soldiers.[2]

On the battlefield, they act like all light cavalry, using their superior mobility to weaken enemy ranks with shortbow fire before they can retaliate or they might chase down fleeing troops if they get the chance.[2]

While the wolves lack the poisonous mandibles and the ability to crawl up or over anything, enjoyed by the mounts of Spider Riders, they make up for it with their sheer speed; the wolves are faster then most horses, save for the finest elven steeds.[3]
