Cow Lizard

Cow-lizard. The cow-lizard is hunted for both meat and leather. The clan of the Cow-lizard have developed techniques to domesticate these creatures and they also use them both as draft animals and in war. This is a war beast of the Tar-Khan, the leader of the clan. His rank can be seen by the four long tassels on his standard. Each rank in the clan has a different number of tassels.

 

Cow-lizards used in war are usually male, are armoured and protected by magic and have horns protected by metal. They move slowly into battle, but are well able to destroy any infantry that they come across. Not all of the clan will ride these beasts and a common tactic is to use cavalry to lure a target into charge range of the cow-lizards or to pen the opponent where they cannot escape.
