Claws of Karanak

Released: February 2023, Bloodhunt boxed set.

The borderline-feral hunters of the Claws of Karanak have dedicated themselves to slaughtering any who offend Khorne's ruthless nature. They revere the god's demonic hounds, and strive to emulate their derocious aspect.

These savage hunters seek to embody the strength of Karanak, the Hound of Vengeance, greatest guard dog of the Skull Throne – and it’s left them barely recognisable as human. Clad in furs and fanged masks, some even rush into the fray on all fours, and the most far-gone must be bound between battles with great brass chains.
