K' Li Mare

The Nautcians entice K' Li Mare to do their bidding because it is the only Octobipod they are aware of that possesses any kind of sentient intelligence. The Nauticans believe K'Li Mare is a female octopus although it's be difficult to tell without getting dangerously close ! "She" appears to be some kind of matriarch in the Octobipod world with the ability to direct and control others of her kind.

K' Li Mare640444447

(* K' Li Mare is a Blue Ring Octopus and while "she" shares the same profile as an Octobipod her venom exudes from all her pores and is more toxic than other Octobipods. A Blue Ring's poison wounds automatically on a 'To Hit' roll of 5+)

Base size 40 x 40mm

Equipment: none

Special Rules: Seaborn, Creature of the Reef, Causes Fear, Poisonous (and immunity to poison), Grapple, Matriarch, Melanin Cloud, Slippery When Wet !


Eight tentacles and two arms make an Octobipod very difficult to attack. Even the most skilful of enemies will find their striking and blocking impeded by the flailing tentacles of an Octobipod that will attempt to wrest shields, weapons and armour from it's foe.

  • Shields are easily clasped, deflected or prised away by a creature with 8 tentacles. For the purposes of close combat, treat any enemy bearing a shield as though they do not have a shield.
  • Because Octobopids are so difficult to attack enemies suffer -1 to hit in close combat.

  • Matriarch

    K' Li Mare can operate alone or lead a unit of Octobipods into battle in which case they can be taken as a Special Unit rather than a Rare unit. This is in addition to the special unit of Octobipods that can be taken if the army includes an Octopus Giganteus. Note however that this does not increase the number of special units that the army is limited to.

    Melanin Cloud

    K' Li Mare is permanently shrouded in an inky mist that extends several feet in all directions.

    This bestows -1 to hit from missile fire for both K' Li Mare and any Octobipod unit she joins.

    Slippery When Wet !

    Octobipods have three hearts and a lot of arms that impede even the most expert killers. not only that but Octobipods are extremely slippery !

    Like other Octobipods and Blue Rings, K' Li Mare is immune to "Killing Blows", such attacks count as normal attacks*

    * this does not apply to the Wood Elves' "Killing Shot" or any other "Killing Blow" ranged weapon.
