Mosh Pit Dev Blog #1: Characters. Introducing Termite and Thunder



Greetings, wargamers! Today, we are thrilled to introduce two characters from the upcoming Mosh Pit tabletop skirmish wargame: Termite and Thunder. These unique individuals bring their own stories, abilities, and playstyles to the battlefield, ensuring an unforgettable gaming experience. So, let's dive into the details and explore the fascinating backgrounds and features of these warriors!





Termite - The Hive Soldier:

Race: Human

Termite's early life was far from ordinary. Raised as a hive soldier, he underwent a series of unique transformations that shaped him into more than just a human. The secret behind his incredible strength, fighting skills, and resilience lies in the enzyme known as "queen ambrosia." Along with other abducted children, Termite was fed this substance, elevating his abilities to astonishing heights.


In terms of appearance, Termite stands at a medium height with a robust build. His entire body, including his face, is protected by heavy chitinous armor that gives him a fearsome presence on the battlefield. Crafted from the exoskeletons of giant insects, his sleek and smooth armor grants him exceptional protection. His sword, fashioned from a soldier's mandible, is a testament to his connection with the colony that still persists.

Termite's arsenal also includes a large shield, further enhancing his defensive capabilities. His helmet features small visors, providing him with ample visibility while ensuring his safety. Inspired by the real-life murmillon gladiators of 105 BC, Termite was one of the first warriors to step foot in the arena, showcasing his tenacity and combat prowess.



Thunder - The Hyena Hunter:

Race: Human

Thunder's life took a different path, driven by the pursuit of survival and the well-being of her family. Once a prosperous hunter, she found that game was becoming scarce near her settlement. In her prime, Thunder could navigate even the most challenging trails and wield her darts with unparalleled precision. However, fate intervened when she encountered a caravaner - the circus ringmaster.


Faced with a difficult decision, Thunder sold her freedom dearly to secure a better future for her children. Her noble sacrifice and selflessness quickly earned her recognition among the audience, skyrocketing her popularity. This new chapter in her life propelled her into the spotlight, where she captivated the hearts of the people.


Thunder's appearance is distinguished by her medium height and her striking dreadlocks. She bears a prosthetic leg, a reminder of the sacrifices she made to ensure her family's security. Through the combination of mental prowess and two-handed axe wielding, Thunder has become a master in both ranged and melee combat. Her numerous implants grant her exceptional versatility on the battlefield, a true force to be reckoned with.

Inspired by the African huntress and Scandinavian warrior traditions, Thunder embodies the strength and determination. Her skill with the axe and her adaptability as a fighter make her an invaluable asset to any warband.
