Blessed StegadonIndomitable Stegadons marked for greatness by the Old Ones.
Stegadons are mighty beasts that have dwelt within the primeval jungles since long before the coming of the Old Ones. They are bulky creatures whose heads are covered by armoured crests, out of which project massive horns. With bony scales and spikes shielding their bodies, there are few predators that dare challenge them. Reared by teams of Skinks who stay with them throughout their lifetimes, Stegadons grow to become very protective of those they have known since they were hatchlings. Large howdahs are attached to the beasts' backs, and from this protected vantage point the Skinks hurl a storm of poison-tipped javelins or fire huge arrows from the mounted great bows known to the Skinks as 'Sotek's Curse'.

Leadership (Base Morale)65
- 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.
- Perfect Vigour
Even when performing the most fatiguing actions, this unit never loses vigour.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
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.
- Perfect Vigour
Even when performing the most fatiguing acts, this unit never loses vigour.
- Poison Attacks
The poisonous attacks of this unit weaken the target's speed and damage.
