Goblin Zeppelin DISCUSSING

Post by Sunrise Samurai » Sat Aug 19, 2017 12:54 am

Who else but the goblins would have the brilliant plan to take highly volatile gases that are lighter than air and bag them, then tether a platform underneath. And nobody would be dumb enough to attach a fire ballista on to this rig.... except maybe, more goblin ingenuity.

Cost 12
Built by goblin slaves, so it's 4 slaves taking 3 turns.
Hp: 25 (weakness to fire based attacks)
Power: 5 (flaming weapon, bonus damage against buildings and ships)
Range: 4
Armor: 0/0
Movement: 5 (flying)
Carries: 2
When destroyed, spawns a radius 3 fireball effect.

It's a useful troop transport that can defend itself, with a built in bomb....... unfortunately​ your opponent can set the bomb off too, in a much less convenient place. Used properly, it can be quite useful to move troops to the front lines, make them run away, then delete it to blow up the enemy. Used poorly, and your enemy takes a fire archer or two after it in the middle of your army while it's holding two ettins.

It's 12 turns built by workers, not buildings, so relatively not that bad. It's also something other than towers for them to make, so I'm going to say yes, they would, since orcs are very lacking in that department.

I think that noone would make such a unit when with the same cost you can make a ettin and half xD

It really isn't the same as an ettin and a half, unless ettins are now grown by goblin slaves from the soil like pea shooters :P

But how much would that cost in a building? Every unit that is made by worker is also made in buildings (the time needed for workers to make one depends mostly on hp and bonusmending).

sure xD

I remember that someone made a nice image for a small zeppelin in the dwarven topic

Since i've made already a badass zeppelin for dwarves we might use the small one for goblins.

Is it going to benefit from "Goblins to elite goblims" tech?
