Some thing like this with a Mo hawk on top
**Please note** I am adding this creature to fill the steam punk gap. I am going for a mine layer unit but if you don't like the idea of mines I think this unit could easily be adapted in to a different support role.
Highlight: It can lay mines.
Faction: Underlord / Empire / Neutral / Any
Acquired By: Workshop
Basic Attack: Mines
Offensive Power: N/A
Defensive Power: Moderate / weak
Resistances: Moderate / weak, for everything
Work: Workshop to battle field
Entertainment: Listens in to the NSA or guessing where you want mines placed!
Special Needs: Mine resupply in the workshop, (it can make its own mines in the work shop)
Upgrades: At higher levels the Steam Punk gets a speed boost.
T1 - A support unit that lays mines.
T2 - It can collect the fallen and take them to prison
Level 1- (Mine layer) - Can lay up to 3 mines before needing to return to the workshop for resupply.
Level 6- (nitrous) - The Steam Punk gets a permanent speed boost.
level 10- (Self destruct) - Boom
Appearance: See above but with a Mo Hawk
Likes: Being useful
Dislikes: Having nothing to do
Behaviour: This useful little guy will hang out in the workshop building mines and awaiting orders. He will position mines where ever he is told and bring back fallen heroes to the prison. No need for food, but may need the occasional touch up in the workshop if damaged. The Steam punk has no real intelligence which is a problem when they get bored. Left too long they will try to be useful by guessing where you want mines placed. With out the overlords safety checks these 'guessed' mines may be a danger to your own creatures and positioned in really stupid places.
Additional: Mines produce a moderate close range explosion that can hit multiple targets. A buried mine is invisible to the enemy but so is a 'guessed mine!'
Torture : Angle grinder, electricity, paint can shaker.
Back story : Once there lived a race known as The Blood Dwarfs, these dwarfs excelled at mechanical works. Tired of being ruled, the Blood dwarfs hatched a cunning plan to build a mechanical army which they could use to destroy their Underlord and rule them selves. Everything from Giant axe wielding brutes to tiny little spy insects were build using metal and powered by steam. Unfortunately for the Blood Dwarfs their manufactured army could not tell friend from foe and started to murder, Blood dwarfs, them selves, the underlord, well everything really. There are no more Blood dwarfs any more. The one relic (success story) was 'The Steam Punk' as its function was support rather than aggression this unit is one of the few mechanical creations to survive.
