I want to know more about this character - What was his story, is it true he rode a giant Flesh Hound?, and if so what the hell happened to him he sounds like such a cool character did he get killed off or something?

I have a sizeable khornate warriors of chaos army and would love to add this character to my horde, anyone know where i can get him?

'Most favoured of all Khorne's many followers is the warlord Arbaal the Undefeated. Countless thousands have fallen beneath his bloodthirsty axe and their skulls pile at the base of the Blood God's mighty throne. A relentless fury of destruction and blood-letting descends on Arball whenever he wades through his foes in battle - no one has ever been able to withstand his attacks. He is ever awareof the eyes of Khorne upon him, knowing that should he one da fail in battle, the terrible wrath of his patron diety shall descend upon im. Thus is the punishment of failure.'

I always thought he was a pretty cool goy, his mount was arguably the best looking fleshhound around and I thought it was a half decent concept. unfortunately he seems to have been reletively phased out, his models no longer available from the collectors range so ebay may be your best bet.

I don't remember his story, but yeah, he did ride a giant flesh hound and yes, he got killed. By me. Many times :p
He was very defeatable, he was actually quite subpar during the wild 5th edition era, my vanilla black orc general would eat him for lunch.

I remember he had MR, some kind of frenzy-ish rule and a rule that turned him into a spawn if he ever fled or something.

Wasn't his Flesh Hound Khorne's personal hound or something like this? I remember to have killed him a few time, he was quite weak back in 4/5th edition, sadly. He had like 1 attack, but that turned into D6 hit if it hit or something like that, somewhat more character-killer oriented, but was still poor. I liked the model a lot though, I would most likely convert a new one if I was playing chaos :)

If you want to run him in your army i suggest making him a khorne exalted/lord with axe of khorne/collar of khorne and make his flesh hound count as a juggernaut...would pretty much fit him and still be relatively effective.

As for the model yes ebay is the way to go or a conversion with the jugg rider mounted on one of the new fleshhounds from the daemon list.

Nice. I like the idea of using a Lord on Juggernaut to represent him. Or maybe just a Daemonic Steed, yeees... add Collar of Khorne and Daemonsword ftw! Must issue challenges eh? That's different ;)

...yes, in his 5th edition rules. I'm (obviously) talking about creating a character set-up to represent him in the current edition's rules :)
