Gutter Runner Slingers (Poison) is a Skaven missile infantry unit in Total War: Warhammer II. Raining slingshots down then vanishing again, too quickly to be caught; a frustrating nuisance to the foe.
Most suspicious deaths and acts of espionage in Skaven society are blamed on the nefarious Clan Eshin. Such accusations are probably true, but, of course, there is no evidence. Much of this devastation is wrought by the Gutter Runners, Clan Eshin's black-clad death squads. Gutter Runners have undergone training in the mysterious fighting style developed in the Far East. Because of their ability to bend and contort their pliable bodies with a speed and dexterity unachievable by man, Gutter Runners have no need for encumbering armour - they simply dodge the blows and missile of their foes. A unit is often led by a Death Runner - the term used for the most promising assassin-adept.
↑Dodge: This highly dexterous unit dodges blades and missiles with ease; its luck is known to run out quickly when facing magical weapons, however.
↑Snare Net: Short-range throwing attack that slows the target.
↑Stalk: This unit can move hidden in any terrain.
↑Vanguard Deployment: This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
Identical to the normal variant of the unit, but the addition of the poison debuff allows them to fill in as a backline support role against armored targets, though their damage output will be negligible.
