Serene Annihilation: The Gallows-Horse

Better raise your ears
The sound of hooves knock at your door
Lock up your wife and children now
It's time to wield the blade
-The Four Horsemen, by Metallica

There are those things which sanity cannot ever content itself with.  The labyrinthine alleys and thoroughfares of Mordheim are a labyrinth of madness - and within its fetid depths, there are those things which spawn from the seething loam of fertile madness.  The Gallows-Horse is one such abomination.  A thing which should not be.

The Gallows-Horse was an early challenger for the warbands entering the hateful depths of Mordheim.  He was defeated rather easily by the Averlanders, but his corpse quickly evaporated into mist - back into the dreams from which he came.

A low and hateful braying can be heard sometimes between the night and nether night.  As Magnus draws near, it seems that the Gallows-Horse is awakening once more.  His hate for those who have dared infest his home, his hate for those who put him to the sword - is swollen to monstrous proportions.

Will the players be able to defeat him once more?


The Gallows-Horse is a nightmarish fusion of horse, man and everlasting despair. He hungers for the flesh of man and daemon alike.
