A stumpy new danger waddles down the dank corridors of your dungeon. He’s heavy. He’s well-armed. In another time and place, he’d be a huge MC Hammer fan. This week, we’ll be taking a look at:
Unit Spotlight: The Warden
Dwarves have always been fearsome, stocky little blighters, far too enthusiastic about violence and yeasty beverages. Strap on a heaving suit of armour and really work at that Napoleon complex, and you’ve got a recipe for an indomitable Dwarven warmaster.
Wardens are the first-line tanks of the Dwarven military; sturdy, experienced, and loaded with an unnecessary number of weapons, they’re able to stand firm in the face of many a foe. Wardens are trained to be a wall of meat and metal that none may pass, and those that do will have to live with an enduring limp. It’s well-known that Dwarves have this … thing about kneecaps. It’s quite neurotic, really.
Wardens have a particular knack for bone-breaking and brain damage. Let’s go over some of their techniques.
- Shield Bash (Active): The Warden slams an enemy with his shield, knocking it back and dealing a moderate chunk of damage.
- Pulverize (Active): The Warden crushes an enemy unit between his hammer and shield, temporarily turning them into a vegetable and stunning them for a brief period.
- Flense (Active, Special): The Warden spins in a circle, slicing up the groins and guts of all nearby enemies, and slowing them down for several seconds.
Thanks for checking in on us this week! We’ll see you when we’re another 7 days closer to release.
Until next time Underlord,
