Squig herder and herd

Squig Herders are Goblins who command vast hordes of Squigs in battle.

The Night Goblins make extensive use of Squigs in battle, being one of the few creatures beneath the World's Edge Mountains whom the goblins can tame (somewhat) effectively. These squigs are either herded towards the enemy, or in the case of the most hard-case gobbos, ridden into battle.[2a]

In Battle

One-on-one, a Squig is no match for the likes of a Slayer or Ironbreaker. The problem isn't the match, it's the numbers. The toothy embrace of a pack of Squigs has brought down many a hearty warrior, and a Squig pack is never more effective than in the hands of an expert Herder. Using tools ranging from pipes to goads to bits of giblets, the Squig Herder drives his minions into a killing frenzy while fighting safely behind the lines. The Herder's own ranged fire combines with the attacks of his minions, challenging any foe. [1]

Herds of Squigs are encouraged with firebrands, pitchforks and drums to charge the enemy.[2a]

Weapons and Equipment
