Quoted from flavor text:
One day a bunch of goblins were sitting around pulling the wings off a big beetle,
Nuagh: Those kharagh's sure are strong, they bash things real good!
Splog: Lets blow them up, we could see whats inside them that makes them so strong.
Gren: Or eat their flesh and steal their strength, then goblins can be strong just like kharaghs!
Splog: But goblin'ss are strong, they blow up good and do much damage already. I'll show you,
Naugh: Latter splog, goblins know we need something better then splogs to bring our explosives and weapons with use. Something for lots of explosives and weapons for much damage!
Bob: Why not a large cart loaded with our explosives and weapons?
Gren: But what would be strong enough to pull this cart?
Naugh: Yes, What could possible drag all our immense explosive supplies, cannons and so forth with us?
Bob: What about a kharagh?
Gren: Yes kharaghs are strong, they could pull our cart. But Gren really wanted to taste n eat kharagh flesh and get strong *frowns*
Naugh: Maybe one of the old ones Gren.
Bob: Problem is, kharaghs probably not like to pull cart.
Naugh: True bob, but kharaghs like goblin flesh, I bet they do it for goblin flesh!
Gren: Lets feed it bob, then it will agree!
Splog: But splog really want to show you how good he can blow up.
Naugh: Afterwords Splog.
Narrative: So the snickering goblins dragged the screaming Bob to be eaten by the kharagh, then set about designing and making the war wagon. Only afterwards realizing they could have used bob to help in its design, and probably should have waited to feed him to the kharagh.
Its a giant cart with two giant wheels, a harness for the kharaghs to drag it. Railings along the side and back, Most of it is made of scrap wood. Spikes poke out everywhere, from its wheels,sides, railings, some pointing up to prevent attacks from above, one or two pointing into the wagon just in case someone jumps in. A few goblins have been skewered by this, but not enough for them to change it. These spikes are made of metal, but some also of wood as metal was hard to come by and more work.
In the back of the wagon is a cannon (& ammunition), a ballista(& ammunition), some bombs, and a large pile of gun powder (in keg form or as a lose large pile in a large wooden crate without a top) As well as several goblins to work it all.
This unit is a transport 7 machine, speed maybe around 36, it slows the kharagh down somewhat but not too much. It has an melee attack from the kharagh, but lower since its harder for it to hit anyone with a wagon attached to its back, damage is still the same. No first strike or charge.
It has cannon, shoot javelins, & has a short range fire bomb attack. It also has the ability to self destruct, maybe 3 or 4. This self destruct does tremendous damage in a radius equal to fireball in 1.4.
What do you guys think?
