Godslayer: Scorpio erhältlich
Die Mortans haben keine Lust mehr auf riskante Nahkämpfe und rüsten mächtig auf.
The Scorpio fires steel-tipped bolts four feet (120 cms) long, capable of penetrating armor at 400 meters.
Only two men are required to crew them – one to load and the other to aim and fire. These crew are soldiers of the Ingenium Militorum who have already proven themselves to be excellent marksmen during training.
Scorpios are primarily designed to be used in batteries, launching massed volleys at longer ranges during war, but they can also be used in skirmish fighting, which of course requires much more accuracy. When they do hit, the bolts can punch through metal armor and kill a man instantly. Anyone not killed will be smashed backwards and often knocked off their feet.
The Scorpio’s use in skirmishes is limited to quite a short range compared to their use during massive battles, primarily due to accuracy considerations, but the crew are able to adjust the Scorpio to reach longer ranges by sacrificing accuracy. this enables a Mortan warband to worry the enemy troops on the far side of the battlefield from the very first turn.
