All Kruleboyz units in Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin

The Orruk Kruleboyz are the sole Greenskin representatives in Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin. More cunning and slight than their other Orruk counterparts, the ranks of the swamp-dwelling Kruleboyz boast great beasts and heroes, as well as stealthier units that can ambush foes.

To review all the Kruleboyz units, we've separated all the units into different tables according to their tier quality. Alongside their classifications, we've got each of their unique abilities and upgrades. Occasionally, abilities will be locked until you complete a certain upgrade; we'll be detailing whether this is the case in our tables as well.
