Gob-Lobber (Grudge Thrower)

When a grudge-writ rock is unavailable, live Goblin ammunition is just as good.

Catapults were one of the earliest of the Dwarf-made war machines and have been used to command the approaches to Dwarfholds for many millennia. During the War of Vengeance, so great was their fury with the Elves that the Dwarfs began the practice of inscribing grudges on the rocks being used as ammunition. This custom stuck, and many crew believe that the engine is only as good as the grudges it throws - and therefore spend as great deal of time carving their anger directly onto the shaped stone ammunition. Grudge Throwers are still used by all Dwarfholds and over the long years there have been many famous engines whose renown has spread far and wide across the Karaz Ankor and beyond. Perhaps most famous of all was the 'Gob-lobber', a legendary catapult which drove off a great many Greenskin attacks during the Goblin Wars - although this was more down to the crew's use of live gobbo ammunition rather than pure accuracy.

Attributes

  • Cannot Run
    This unit cannot run and will only move at walking pace.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Goblin Mangonel
    A particularly stupid and otherwise useless Goblin prisoner is tied to a boulder and is then fired - screaming all the way - until he smashes into the target. Those hit by this projectile receive a leadership penalty.
  • Armour-Piercing Missiles
    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.
  • Anti-Infantry
    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 effects a large area.
