Marauder Chieftain (War Mammoth)

Chieftains are the bravest, most warlike among their kind - hurling themselves into the fray and remaining until the very end.

The tribes of Northmen that flock southwards with any Chaos invasion are known by those in their path as Marauders. These savage barbarians fight with heavy axes and cruelly barbed flails, and charge in great howling mobs towards the foe. They have little fear of dying in battle, for they know that they fight under the scrutiny of their gods, and that cowards are beneath their deities' notice. The Chieftains that lead these warriors are a daunting sight, brooding hulks of muscle and hair whose bodies are covered in the scars and trophies of battle. Bearing weapons worn from dealing a thousand mortal injuries to those foolish enough to face them, these savage leaders are independent and fierce. These battle-hardened killers are the products of a people so steeped in conflict that, even in times of prosperity, they will fight to the death for the honour of leading the next raid.

Abilities

  • Foe-Seeker
    There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.
  • Stand or Die!
    Tyrants and Lords whose word is law ensure their troops will not run by issuing this dread order.

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.
  • Encourage
    This unit provides a Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Causes Terror
    This unit can fear themselves.
  • 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.
  • Damage Dealer
    This unit has a strong emphasis on dealing damage. If fighting it, make sure to take it out before it can get into firing or melee range.
