Dread Saurian

This colossal predator is made all the more lethal by the team of blowpipe-wielding Skinks it carries atop its massive body.

The Dread Saurian is the largest, most powerful and most feared predator living on the Lustrian continent; an echo of ancient days when huge beasts did battle with the Dragons’ ancestors for supremacy. Immense creatures, larger even than the towering Carnosaur, and perhaps even more powerful than the titanic Thunder Lizard, Dread Saurians are few in number and therefore sacred to the Lizardmen. The fury of each one prowling the fetid jungles is moderated only by the arcane power generated from its ornate ceremonial armour. Without this precaution, even the power of the Slann cannot not hold the Dread Saurians back, once unleashed.

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.
  • Fire Whilst Moving
    This unit can fire while on the move.

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.
  • Fire whilst moving
    This unit can fire while on the move.
