War Mammoth (Warshrine)

This vicious beast carries a warshrine aloft, carrying blasphemous icons and unholy relics to battle in sight of the Chaos Gods.

Roaming across the frozen north are the woolly colossuses of the Old World – the gargantuan Feral Mammoths. With their elephantine trunks and great curved tusks, they are not unlike living mountains, feeding off the thorny barrens and causing the ground to quake as they follow their endless migration paths. The Northmen frequently seek them out as abandoned calves, for if a mammoth is trained early enough, it can be brought into battle as a highly effective trampling weapon that can easily reduce enemies to bloody ground-smears. Exposure to Chaos-tainted materials has resulted in some of the species mutating into larger and more aggressive versions of the regular feral variety, sometimes sprouting extra horns that make them desirable to be ridden into battle as War Mammoths.

Abilities

  • Giver of Glory
    The shrinemaster implores the fickle Chaos Gods for their aid, bestowing their dark blessings upon nearby Champions.
  • Favour of the Ruinous Powers
    When the Dark Gods bless the faithful assembled from atop their mighty battle-altars, loyalty is assured forevermore.

Attributes

  • Causes Fear
    This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
  • 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.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Armoured
    Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
  • Causes Terror
    This unit can fear themselves.
  • Armour-Piercing
    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.
