BOOM Caster


Although the dwarves strictly guard the secrets of the thunder potion, they can't completely prevent it from falling into the enemy's hands. Since the very first encounters with the dwarves, goblins have acquired enough sticks and potions, but like all other races, they have never learned to produce a substance on their own nor understood the principle of the thundering weapons work. But they did realized that from the fire the thunder potion may explode, and began to use it to fill the shells of the most powerful catapults. The crew of the so-called ''BOOM Caster'' must be extremely careful to not hit too close to its position, as they may suffer from the explosion of its own projectile.
