Unit Description

A loathsome beast of uncharted depths possessing colossal strength and insatiable hunger.

Historical Description

The Kharibdyss is a loathsome beast of the uncharted depths, goaded to war by the Dark Elves. It is brutish and slow-witted at heart and simply rampages wherever hunger leads it. It is one of the most formidable weapons under Druchii command. Its slimy body, adapted to resist the pressures of the ocean, is unstoppable on land, possessing colossal strength and incredible fortitude. Smaller foes are simply swept into its maw by its crown of flailing tentacles. Larger foes are entangled and held fast whilst razor-sharp teeth feast upon their succulent flesh.


Abyssal Howl

The Kharibdyss lets out a spine-chilling howl, terrifying those who would dare to stand in its path.


Can Cause Fear

This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.

Can Cause Terror

This unit can cause terror, making its melee target rout for a short time. Units that cause terror are immune to terror and fear themselves.

Strengths & Weaknesses


Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.


Whereas some units struggle to fight and move in shallow water, aquatic units excel.

Scaly Skin

Scaly skin or hides help to dampen or deflect the damage caused by missile weapons, increasing this unit's Missile Resistance.

Causes Terror

This unit can cause terror, making its melee target rout for a short time. Units that cause terror are immune to terror and fear themselves.
