Red Crested Skink Chief (Ancient Stegadon)

Marked for greatness amidst an already-blessed spawning, these Skink Chiefs are the leaders of their red-crested legions.

Within Lizardmen society, the quick-witted, swift-moving Skinks are the administrators and craftsmen – the workers, you might say. As is common among the Slann, certain spawnings are – for reasons unclear – faster, stronger, sharper and brighter than their peers. Such is the case of the Red Crested Skinks, who first emerged at the temple-city of Chaqua before it was attacked and overrun by a particularly vicious horde of plague-bearing Skaven, and it was the Red Crested Skinks who subsequently heeded Tehenhauin’s call and flocked to the Prophet’s banner in service of the coming Serpent-God, Sotek. As the survivors of the slaughter and the plague that followed it fanned out across Lustria, they brought word of the Prophecy of Sotek to all Lizardmen, urging them on to total war against Skavenkind and proclaiming that the sacrifice of any rat spawn would invoke the Serpent-God and hasten his blessed arrival.

Abilities

  • Focus Instincts
    By which the mind is concentrated on the task at hand, allowing it to be carried out effectively whilst keeping passion and abandon firmly in check.
  • Warrior's Crest
    It's not just for decoration, you know!
  • Foe-Seeker
    There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.
  • 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.
  • Fire Whilst Moving
    This unit can fire while on the move.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Causes Terror
    This unit can fear themselves.
  • Armour-Piercing Melee
    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.
  • Fire whilst moving
    This unit can fire while on the move.
