Plagueclaw Catapult

The greatest way to deliver toxic scourge is to hurl it at the enemy from a very safe distance!

It was in the Southlands that crude torsion devices first began hurling loathsome substances onto the foe during battle. The Plague Monks learned to deliver their pestilent payloads via catapult, the erupting splatter of deadly contents slaying targets in a toxic storm. Those splashed by the semi-congealed liquid find their skin simultaneously sloughing off in ruin and elsewhere erupting in glistening spores. Armour offers no protection against such a loathsome weaponry. Plagueclaw Catapults are great, wheeled scaffold-towers bearing catapults. Pushed into position by ragged Clan Pestilens acolytes, the claw-like arm of a Plagueclaw Catapult is winched back and unleashed to lob hideous death. The toxic semi-liquid leave a glowing streak across the sky as it arcs earthward.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Plagueclaw Contagion
    Warpstone dust and vile contagions are amongst the ingredients of this catapult’s liquid missiles, exposure to which does horrendous things to bodies and minds alike.
  • 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.
