Truthsayers are the special breed of Druids, native to Albion, that lead the tribes of human Barbarians and have some control over the Giants of Albion
In opposition to the the degenerate humans on the misty island, they are able and skilled magic users that try to protect the artifacts of the Old Ones. Some times they utilise the Giants to move some of the large and heavy Ogham Stones following their visions of fulfilling the great plan of the Old Ones.

Dark Emissaries

Dark Emissary is a former Truthsayer, a sorcerer from the isle of Albion, that uses a specific strand of Chaos magic. This Chaos magic is granted to them by their lord and master, the Daemon Prince Be'lakor. They traveled the Old World and lured power-hungry, greedy or evil armies to the mist shrouded island, to help their Dark Master. Like the pure Truthsayers they are able to create and control the Fenbeasts of Albion. After the defeat of the Dark Master the Dark Emissaries became targets of the revenge from the Truthsayers as well as from their former allies, who felt misused and betrayed by them. They fled the island of Albion and roam now the Warhammer world as Dogs of War, who sell their service to the highest bidder. They will fight for the Hordes of Chaos and the warherds of the Beastmen as well as for Dark ElvesVampire CountsSkaven or Greenskins and even may be hired by some unscrupulous mercenary general or Elector Count from one of the Imperialprovinces. Most notable places where they dwell now are in the Chaos Wastes. Their symbol is a spiral form, a feared and potent sign of dark and Chaotic magic.

I played in the original Shadows of Albion campaign what feels like a life time ago. These models hold some very fond memories for me and reinforces my love for Chris Fitzpatrick sculpts. These models were painted for Animosity Gaming's staggering amazing campaign:

The Truthsayer was painted in warm tones with colours propagating life, fecundity and wholesomeness. The Dark Emissary in contrast has a dour paint scheme, sterile of joy.
