Unit Description

The Solar Engine can disintegrate enemies with a beam of pure sunlight.

Historical Description

Known to the Skinks as the Bastiladon, this hulking quadruped is perhaps the most heavily-armoured beast in Lustria. It is a walking fortress, a living bastion covered in rock-hard bony skin, and then further protected by massive iron-like plates - a natural armour so dense that it can, sometimes, thwart the bite of the mighty Carnosaur. Even those blows that crack the outermost armour plates cannot penetrate deeply into the beast due to the Bastiladon's alternating layers of thick leathery skin and additional scales. Their incredibly thick and armoured hides allow them to carry devices which other beasts, even the revered Stegadon, steadfastly refuse. These revered and holy objects are mounted upon the great beast's back so that they might be activated to smite any who dare set foot in sacred Lustria.


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

Armour-Piercing Melee

The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.


Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.

Beam of Chotec

An intense, white-hot shaft of light emanates forth, burning and blinding the foe with the wrath of Chotec himself.

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.
