Warlock Master (Doom-Flayer)

Cunning overseers, whose job it is to manage and well, steal any credit that may be due an inventive Warlock Engineer.

The Warlock Engineers of Clan Skryre are perhaps the most ingenious minds in all Skavendom; insane, diabolical scientists who combine arcane sorcery with mad science to create some of the the greatest technological marvels of mayhemic destruction. They are the artificers of Skaven society, producing black-market weaponry for any able to pay for it. Under the ever-watchful eyes of their Warlock Masters, whose role it is to oversee and, well, steal any credit that may be due, Warlock Engineers are the very pinnacle of Skaven technomancy. They combine well-known weapons with heavy armour to make highly-experimental devices which do not always function flawlessly - many have met their doom as the result of an exploding Warp-power accumulator!

Abilities

  • Brass Orb
    Possession of this orb enables the user to inexorably drag the foe into a turbulent vortex of pain and death.
  • The Best Defence
    There's no better defence than attack… preferably with this mass of whirling blades. Stay on the right side of it if you want to live!
  • Scurry Away!
    "He who runs away lives to fight another day!" - so the foul, craven adage goes.
  • Arcane Conduit
    A strong mind is needed to channel the Winds of Magic. Those that have such a gift become arcane conduits - funnelling the magical tempests to their cause.
  • Extra Powder
    There are those who have a knack for pushing artillery and their crews to new heights, allowing such machines to fire further than ever before.

Attributes

  • Encourage
    This unit provides a Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Spellcaster
    This unit can cast spells.
  • Armoured
    Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
  • 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.
  • Anti-Infantry
    Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that effects a large area.
