Mechanical Goliath


Giant metallic beasts under the command of the forces of Chaos, the Mechanical Goliaths can crush any man, skeleton, or even troll, in a matter of seconds. They seem to be immune to poison, drain, and other hazards that would normally have some effect on a living being, which suggests that they are magically animated statues of iron and steel, or some sort of shell for a living creature that is weak on its own.

To make things even worse, it is said that they can destroy entire armies from a distance with a sudden flash of red light, in an attack that is both powerful and accurate.

Special Notes: This unit’s marksmanship gives it a high chance of hitting targeted enemies, but only on the attack. This unit can move unseen in deep water, requiring no air from the surface.
