Goblin Big Boss (Giant Spider)Though powerful enough in battle, a Goblin Boss can also employ all manner of trickery to ensure victory.
Orcs determine their hierarchy in a simple manner - the biggest and best fighter takes control. Goblins follow a less straightforward path to the top ranks, as they are both more devious and more cowardly than their brutish Orc cousins. Underhanded ploys and strategy are the preferred tactics for Goblins; although straight-up fighting is still an option, it is one that is typically left to the especially desperate. All Goblins use dirty tricks, with the best schemers being the most dangerous of their diminutive kind and the most likely to rise through the ranks. Those Goblins that make it to the very top are known as Warbosses or Warlords, although some of the more outlandish tribes might use more localised names such as a Wolf-khan, Grand Despot, Potentate, Bogtator, Chieftain-king or Great Grif.

Those who are "slippery" cannot be cornered or pinned - they simply "slip" away…
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.
Speed and combat penalties caused by terrain are ignored by this unit.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
This unit is best used to attack individual targets such as Heroes. As it can only damage very few individuals at a time, it is not suitable against hordes of weak enemies.
- Poison Attacks
The poisonous attacks of this unit weaken the target's speed and damage.
