Saurus Oldblood (Carnosaur)

Venerated Lizardmen leaders, they exact brutal vengeance upon enemies and trespassers alike.

The most powerful of their kind, Saurus leaders are more than eight feet of savage reptilian muscle. The highest rank given is the title Oldblood, while those beneath them are known as Scar-Veterans. They are perfectly designed killing machines, their martial prowess further enhanced by battle experience. To their foes, be they ancient nemeses or simply those who trespass upon the sovereign territory of their masters, the Saurus are nothing less than the vengeance of the Old Ones made manifest. Some Saurus leaders are marked for greatness, bearing a different pattern or crest to the rest of their brethren. Those with pale or albino skin tones are always revered - for they are the favoured of the Old Ones and destined to become mighty heroes. Yet a Saurus need not be different from his comrades to gain veteran status; he need only survive.

Abilities

  • Cold-Blooded
    While Lizardmen may be slow to react due to their cold-blooded nature, this also makes them stoic in battle.
  • Foe-Seeker
    There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.
  • Stand Your Ground!
    On the battlefield, the craven's path is an easy one, but for those champions that choose to stand? Fortune will surely favour them and their troops.
  • Frenzy
    Some warriors care not for their own personal safety and so work themselves into a whirlwind of destruction and mindless violence!

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

  • 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.
  • Predatory Senses
    These units are natural hunters that can sense prey hiding nearby.
