Hearthgut Hooch Hauler — Trollblood Northkin Battle Engine
Hooch haulers combine the two favorite pastimes of the Northkin: battle and dangerously strong alcohol. These armored wagons are loaded with sloshing kegs filled with the highest-proof booze a warband can distill. As the great bears hauling the wagon trample through the enemy’s ranks, the crew lights volatile kegs and flings them into concentrations of warriors or hoses down infantry with pressurized sprays of burning spirits. When the enemy army is defeated, the Northkin gather at their hooch haulers to drink deeply and share stories of their accomplishments during the battle.
The Hearthgut Hooch Hauler provides a strong suite of support abilities for any Northkin force. Veteran Leader will help all of your Northkin land their attacks, Stumbling Drunk will keep your warriors on their feet and in fighting order, and the Oil special rule granted by High Proof on the Cask Bomb will set up all of your fire-based attacks for a very powerful turn. With two SP 10 attacks and an AOE 4 fire bomb, this battle engine brings a lot of pain to the enemies of the North! The Hooch Hauler works very well with Northkin Raiders, Northkin Fire Eaters, and the warlocks Calandra Truthsayer, Oracle of the Glimmerwood and Borka, Vengeance of the Rimeshaws.
