Goblin Great Shaman is a Greenskins melee infantry unit in Total War: Warhammer. A Great Shaman summons the power of Gork and Mork, ravaging any in his way.

Description[edit | edit source]

A Goblin Shaman's spells are weedy and irritating, but dangerous - just like Goblins themselves. While Orc Shamans tend to be seen as trance-addled buffoons, Goblin Shamans are cagey and cunning, if no less odd. They often use their magic to barter for tribal influence. Many Goblin Shamans work their way into a top position, either directly advising the Warboss or even taking the command role themselves. Any Greenskin that opposes a Goblin Shaman is apt to suffer nasty rashes, mysterious beetle infestations or some other wicked malady. In battle, Goblin Shamans turn their spiteful spells towards slaying, or at least annoying, the foe. These spells are more subtle than their larger kin's, but no less effective. When an enemy fails to charge because they have doubled up with itchy hives, or the weapons of the Greenskins seem to dart unerringly for weak spots in a foe's armour, it is often due to the magic of a Goblin Shaman.
