Quirks of Character
URL Copied!

Mercenaries frequently have some dark secret, quirk in their character or particular skill which explains how they have become renowned sellswords. Models can spend points on Quirks of Character, as detailed in the army list. The points costs below refer to the cost for characters. One character and one unit may take the same Quirk of Character, but each Quirk may otherwise only be taken once per army (not including Special Characters).
