Skink Priest (Heavens) (Ancient Stegadon (Engine of the Gods))

Enacting the will of their Slann overlords, magical fury is unleashed upon the Old Ones' foes.

On occasion, a Skink spawning will not produce an entire cohort from the pools of life, as is the norm, but instead only a single Skink will issue forth. These individuals are marked by the Old Ones and destined to lead, or otherwise achieve greatness amongst their kind. Those Skinks attuned to the energies of the world and that show an aptitude for magic are the Skink Priests, the most intelligent of their kind. Their role is to become the personal attendants of the mighty Slann Mage-Priests, and act as the prophets of the Lizardmen, as the only ones capable of interpreting and executing the will of their Slann masters. This is rarely straightforward, as entranced Slann do little more than mumble, yet each utterance, even the most incoherent whisper, might have vast consequences - for of all living creatures, the Slann are the most powerful of mages, and they alone worked under orders from the Old Ones. As it is strictly forbidden to disturb an entranced Slann in any but the direst of times, it is left to a Skink Priest to make many daily decisions for the whole of Lizardmen society. On behalf of their masters, it is their role to ensure that the Great Plan comes to fruition.

Abilities

  • Burning Alignment
    A scorching ray of light blasts forth from the sky, putting the foe to flight or screaming, burning death - preferably the latter!
  • Arcane Configuration
    Command of this ability means never again having to run out of the Winds before the fight is well and truly done.
  • Portent of Warding
    Knowing where the trap is - that's the first step in evading it.
  • Cold-Blooded
    While Lizardmen may be slow to react due to their cold-blooded nature, this also makes them stoic in battle.

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

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Spellcaster
    This unit can cast spells.
  • 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.
  • Poison Attacks
    The poisonous attacks of this unit weaken the target's speed and damage.
