Unit Description

A bouncing, teeth-gnashing timebomb on legs – quite literally, the most volatile Squig one can take to battle!

Historical Description

Cave Squigs are found far beneath the World's Edge Mountains. They are improbable creatures, part-fungus and part-flesh with spheroid bodies, beady eyes and gaping maws dominated by row upon row of dagger-like teeth. Night Goblins hunt Cave Squigs for a number of purposes. Squig hide is very useful and Squig meat is considered a delicacy. Some are captured and reared to become guard creatures or pets to affluent Boss-types (no other could afford to feed such voracious beasts). In times of need, Squigs are driven into battle to devastating effect. When all goes well, a Night Goblin Squig Herd can chomp through any opposition. When it goes wrong, such as when all their Night Goblin Herders are slain, the remaining Cave Squigs quickly disperse. Driven mad by noise and prodding, Cave Squigs are eager to scatter in all directions, snapping at anything in their way, including other mobs on their own side. Night Goblins, being a bit deranged, don't seem to mind such a risk - as long as it is somebody else being bitten in two by suddenly rampaging, wild Cave Squigs.


Exploding Unit

This is a hidden ability that enables some flashy persistent banner VFX to indicate that a unit explodes

Squigs Go Boom

Not all Squigs have lasting usefulness. Some have a more fleeting... 'percussive' utility.


Hide (forest)

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

Immune to Psychology

The unit is immune to psychological attacks (fear and terror).

Strengths & Weaknesses


Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that affects a large area.


This unit explodes, dealing damage to any units unfortunate enough to be caught in the blast radius.

Poor Leadership

This unit suffers from poor leadership and will easily rout. Keep its flanks secure and your Lord or other encouraging units nearby.
