Bloated Corpse

Swollen with volatile, noxious gases, their liquefying tissues strain dangerously under rotten and tattered skin.

A troop of zombie pirates is as macabre a sight as any Necromancer’s ghostly, rotting horde. The bodies of those brought back into existence as Unliving automatons continue to rot once they are reanimated, so necromantic admirals tend to raise crewmen from the freshest victims possible. Sometimes a corpse may have spent weeks floating in the ocean before it is raised, however, becoming swollen with noxious gases over time, its tissues seeping from rotten and tattered skin which blisters and turns to a greenish hue. In reanimating such a grotesquery to fight in their horde, a Lord essentially has a walking time bomb in their ranks, and a volatile one at that. It is far preferable to fight against such a creature at a distance, for when attacked, their tortured forms may suddenly disintegrate in a poisonous shower of decomposing internal organs and diseased fluids.

Abilities

  • Gaseous Demise
    Some drowned sailors lurch from the sea swollen with noxious gases, ready to explode upon contact with enemy blades. Keep well back!
  • Noxious Disintegration
    Corpses bloated from spending too long at sea are like foul, decomposing balloons waiting to burst.
  • Crumbling
    The dead do not rest easily in the Old World. Those summoned by Vampires and Necromancers no longer have mortal concerns - they serve only their master's will.

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.
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
  • {{tr:wh2_dlc09_undead_description}}

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Causes Terror
    This unit can fear themselves.
  • Aquatic
    Whereas some units struggle to fight and move in shallow water, aquatic units excel.
