Goblin Wolf Chariots is a Greenskins war machine unit in Total War: Warhammer. Chariots deliver devastating charges to the front lines; the wolf steeds that draw them are ferocious in battle.
It wasn't long after they first started using giant wolves as cavalry that Goblin armies began to field wolf-drawn chariots. Cobbled together out of crudely hacked wood or scavenged materials and lashed tight with gutstring cords, all Greenskins hold such rickety constructions in high regard. To be able to rumble across a battlefield mounted atop a chariot is a clear sign of importance. Many tribal Chieftains prefer to ride in chariots, trying to outdo their rivals by fielding the fastest and flashiest contraption.
- ↑ Anti-Infantry: Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that effects a large area.
- ↑ Very Fast: This unit can run circles around most other units, taunting and harrassing the enemy or evading its missile fire.
Where Orcs are slow and brutish, the Goblin chariot is sneaky and cunning. The Goblin Chariot has an insane speed which can outpace some light cavalry units.It also has 3 more models than a Orc Boar Chariot which means more disruption to the enemy lines. This is further amplified by the ranged attack on the goblin chariot which allows them to poke at enemies from a distance as well as ride through them. Overall the chariot is meant to speed around the battlefield annoying and harassing enemies. Their damage and melee stats leave something to be desired, so do not let them be caught or they will be destroyed. This unit is useful for being a difficult to catch unit that can capitalize on enemy mistakes.
Compared to Snotling Pump Wagons, they retain similar bonuses. The Goblins are significantly faster even when compared to the Snotling Pump Wagons (Flappas) variant. While they lack the damage of Snotlings, they do have numbers of having a higher model count, ridiculous speed, and the ranged attacks.
