Soopa-Squig! is a Greenskins melee infantry unit. One incensed Squig is enough trouble. For whosoever attracts their ire, an entire herd conjures a nightmare!

Description[edit | edit source]

Cave Squigs are found far beneath the World's Edge Mountains. They are improbable creatures, part-fungus and part-flesh with spheroid bodies, beady eyes and gaping maws dominated by row upon row of dagger-like teeth. Night Goblins hunt Cave Squigs for a number of purposes. Squig hide is very useful and Squig meat is considered a delicacy. Some are captured and reared to become guard creatures or pets to affluent Boss-types (no other could afford to feed such voracious beasts). In times of need, Squigs are driven into battle to devastating effect. When all goes well, a Night Goblin Squig Herd can chomp through any opposition. When it goes wrong, such as when all their Night Goblin Herders are slain, the remaining Cave Squigs quickly disperse. Driven mad by noise and prodding, Cave Squigs are eager to scatter in all directions, snapping at anything in their way, including other mobs on their own side. Night Goblins, being a bit deranged, don't seem to mind such a risk - as long as it is somebody else being bitten in two by suddenly rampaging, wild Cave Squigs.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Explosive: This unit explodes, dealing damage to any units unfortunate enough to be caught in its radius
  • 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.
