About

Unit Description

Night Goblins raid with efficiency; they swarm and ambush, cutting their foes apart.

Historical Description

Night Goblins are well suited to their subterranean existence. They range in size, but many are on the stunted side, which better enables the spiteful creatures to move quickly through the tight cavernways below ground. Night Goblins are easily marked out from other Greenskins as they wear long, dark, hooded cloaks, in part to blend in with the poorly lit tunnels but mostly to protect themselves from the hated sunlight should they venture above ground. Given a choice, Night Goblins only leave their underground lairs at night or when the sun is shrouded by cloud or gloomspell. When they do emerge, Night Goblins launch deadly raids, ambush travellers in mountain passes, and commit countless other malicious deeds. They are particular enemies of the Dwarfs, and the two races share a long history of bitter battles on mountainous peaks and below ground.

Attributes

Expendable

Witnessing friendly expendable units rout does not reduce other units' leadership, unless they are themselves expendable.

Guerilla Deployment

Stalk

This unit can move hidden in any terrain.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Expendable

Witnessing friendly expendable units rout does not reduce other units' Leadership, unless they are themselves expendable.

Poison Attacks

The poisonous attacks of this unit weaken the target's speed and damage.

Poor Leadership

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

Shielded

Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
