Warhammer Ogre Slaughtermaster

A Slaughtermaster imbued with the power of the Great Maw

Ogre Slaughtermasters are the most senior Butchers within the tribe, immense, corpulent hulks covered in offal of dried blood . They have appalling personal hygiene and nothing more than wallowing in meat, guts and blood regardless of its source. Hideous and mean. Butchers are essentially the Ogre equivalent of a tribal shaman yet their role is more that of a holy man than magic-user.[1a]

They have a direct link to the Great Maw, and are able to channel a small portion of the Ogre deity's insatiable thirst gluttony and violence in a practice known as Gut Magic. A Butcher is also directly responsible for preparing his tribe's Feasts, the closest the Ogres have to a religious festival. Finally, during induction into the cult of the Great, these Slaughtermasters are taught how to tame fire. As firemaster, shaman and head chef, Slaughtermasters wield a large amount of influence within each Ogre kingdom, second only to the Tyrant himself. Twinned with their malign intellect, it is not uncommon for the hoarse whispers of a tribe's Slaughtermaster to dictate the bellowed commands of his Tyrant.[1a]
