Twisted creatures of Chaos, Beastmen come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but the most common is goat-headed, with cloven hooves but human arms. This makes them pretty similar to humans, except for a couple of important differences. Firstly, their thick skull and protruding horns makes them much more dangerous to opposing players when charging. Secondly, their affiliation with the Dark Gods opens up a range of opportunities for career development that even the most ambitious human player would balk at, and Beastmen with giant claws, distorted limbs and even multiple heads are a relatively common sight on the Blood Bowl field.
Beastmen who have dedicated themselves to Nurgle are known as Pestigors.
