About

Unit Description

The aim is calibrated, the muzzle is loaded and “FOOMPH!”, the deadly orb of Warpstone Gas is away!

Historical Description

The Poisoned Wind Mortar is a form of light-artillery that allows a small team of Globadiers to lob a much larger payload of Poisoned Wind Globes at a much greater range than a lone Globadier could ever hope to achieve. This two-Skaven team requires one of its member to strap on the mortar upon his back while a second Skaven would load the ammunition inside the mortar itself. Additionally, with some hastily-squealed directions, a Poisoned Wind Mortar has the ability to fire on the go or indirectly at the enemy. Such a situation, where hurting the enemy without risking their own lives has always been an appealing idea to any Skaven.

Abilities

Scurry Away!

He who runs away lives to fight another day! - so the foul, craven adage goes.

Strength in Numbers

Skaven are craven by nature but take courage when in packs of their own kind, where they move slower but enjoy the safety of numbers.

Attributes

Hide (forest)

This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Damage Dealer

This unit has a strong emphasis on dealing damage. If fighting it, make sure to take it out before it can get into firing or melee range.

Good Range

This unit has a larger range than most other units of the same class. This allows it to take out hostile missile units before they can come into firing range.

Poisoned Wind Globes

Misleadingly, and to the horror of anyone exposed to its content, the globes thrown by the Poisoned Wind Globadiers do not release poison, but a small cloud of lethal Warpstone gas. The larger the target's surface, the more pain it will experience.
