Default Warp-Spawned Entities

OK I know about Daemons, Warp Beasts and the Enslavers (are they even part of the fluff anymore ???) but what other warp entities are there? I'm trying to find a bit of info on the various predators that lurk in the immaterium for some house rules, and anything will be greatly appreciated.

What I'm after is a name, description of what they look like, and how powerful they are. As I said, anything is greatly appreciated! ^-^

Enslavers are more a part of the fluff than ever, being tied in with that entire Enslaver plague that forced the Ctans and Necrons to sleep.

Done a bit of reading on Enslavers, they don't really suit what I'm after. The rulebook makes a passing reference to "Vampyres", they seem to be more suitable to my needs, does anyone have any information on them?

Info on ANY other non-daemonic warp entity is appreciated.

While not a warp spawned creature as such, the Crotalid are a species known to make instinctive use of the warp. I don't think they are what you are after, but it might help.


Yeah, I don't think GW ever went into much detail on vampyres, but I would imagine a warp entity that maybe leeches your soul, dementor style maybe?

Vampires are a chemeleonic race. They are amazingly powerful physically (better than Genestealers), and have considerable Psychic powers. In their "natural" form, they resemble a giant bat-human hybrid, but they can appear as almost any race of comparable size (ie: Human, Eldar, Ork, Tau, Kroot, etc).

Vampires infiltrate other races (even Eldar, according to Rogue Trader). They naturally seek positions of power, and see other vampires as a threat.

A Vampire is great if you need something that is fast, strong, packing psionic death and bloody hard to find...

Thanks guys! I'm looking for something that could be controlled similarly to Warp Beasts (a Dark Eldar unit for those that don't know). In fact I'm after about 2-3 somethings that could possibly be utilised by a Dark Eldar Psyker (before you go off at me I've thought this idea through and it will be revealed totally once I find a few little beasties to command).

I'm interested in the Crotalid now, time for some Google and Wikipedia.
