The Sunmaker (Helstorm Rocket Battery) is a Empire artillery unit in Total War: Warhammer II. Its destructive power cannot be overstated, the world illuminated by a turbulent battery of missile fire.
The Helstorm Rocket Battery was inspired by a particularly impressive fireworks display. Early prototypes blew apart an entire floor of the Imperial Engineers School, but the soot-blackened Engineers persevered and succeeded in creating a deadly, if unpredictable, weapon. The shrieking rockets fired by this bizarre machine are wildly inaccurate weapons that have little chance of hitting anything other than (eventually) the ground. However, when these rockets do land on target, the results are devastating; entire regiments are blown apart by a series of earth-shaking explosions. After Elector Count Boris Todbringer was almost killed by an errant barrage, they were dubbed 'Helstorm' rockets after the colourful language used to reprimand the unfortunate crewmen.
- ↑ 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.
- ↑ Good Range: This unit has a larger range than most other units of the same class. This allows it to take out hostile missile units before they can come into firing range.
- ↓ Poor Accuracy: This unit's attacks are prone to go stray.
