Zamorakians Unit Preview

This preview came fast after the saradominist one but that is because I worked on both at the same time. The Zamorakians have a fairly unique roster because unlike other factions they have many units that can launch their enemies in the sky. The draw back with the Zamorakians is that many of its soldiers are very prone to getting out control which will be the main challenge of this faction. The Zamorakians mostly make use of demons but vampyres and werewolves are deployed as well. The Zamorakians also have a few dwarves and humans among their ranks as well.

Again at the end of this article you'll find a video that shows the units of in game.

Chaos Dwarves

Zamorak cursed the Dwarf race forcing them to fight for him if they were to make use of their magical skills. The dwarves that have been twisted are now fierce zamorakians unlike most of their kin who mostly follow Guthix.

Zamorakian Warriors

After succesfully overthrowing Zaros many humans under viggora joined the ranks of Zamorak. These human warriors devoted to Zamorak wield massive deadly weapons.

Inquisitors

inquisitor


Once justiciars -enforcers of Saradomin's will- they now serve Zamorak. Where they first used their might to bring order in the name of Saradomin they now bring chaos in the name of Zamorak.

Werewolves

Werewolves appear as humans but can change into a humanoid looking wolf, becoming much stronger. These inhabitants of mostly Canafis have chosen to side with Zamorak betraying Zaros.

Fiends

Fiends like their demonic brethern are from the Infernus world. They are fairly cheap and reliable chock infantry when used effectively.

Hellhounds

hellhound


Hellhounds are foul avernic demons from the Infernus who charge at anything at the first glimpse of bloodlust! To what tier of Avernic demons they belng is unkown.

Imp Rabble

imp rabble


Imps are one of the lowest tier demons but unlike their bigger and more powerful brothers these imps are far more numerous. These Imps use their cunning and blades to swarm their enemies out of nowhere.

Imp Skirmishers

imp skirmish


Imps are one of the lowest teir demons but unlike their bigger and more powerful brothers these imps are far more numerous. The Imp Skirmishers prefer to first use their short bow and keep their enemy as far as possible before engaging in melee.

Bloodveld

bloodveld


Most bigger and powerful demons deployed by Zamorak are Avernic demons but Cthonian demons who except for the bloodvelds and a few others got destroyed by the Avernic demons with the aid of Zamorak. It seems the bloodveld are very loyal to Zamorak and that they may even have betrayed the other Cthonians in support of Zamorak.

Lesser Demons

lesser demon


The Byzroth or Lesser Demons, as they are called by Humans, are wingless Avernic Demons who unlike their Alyorath or Tsutsaroth kin are far more numerous.

Greater Demons

greater demon


The Alyaroth or Greater Demons, as they are called by Humans, are winged Avernic Demons who are some of the most powerful Avernic Demons.

K'ril Tsutsaroth

kril tsutsaroth


K'ril Tsutsaroth is a powerful Tsutsaroth Demon loyal to Zamorak and probably his most trusted general despite being from a different race than Zamorak himself.

Isn't Zamorak originally a Mahjarrat and not a demon? Or is that post-2011 lore?

Zamorak himself is not shown, he is indeed a Mahjarrat. I will add Mahjarrat later as ancient magicks sellcasters.

Hey, a very nice update! What about using a different shield pattern for Swordsmen and Spearmen, and adding a pattern for Chaos Dwarves (they have a blank shield)?

I could try for the chaos dwarves but I already got the vampyre infantry done using the same texture files for all 4 units, I don't have a lot of room to add stuff in it and my current priority is adding more new units to other factions. In th future for sure I'll try and add even more unique models.

This feeling when Imp looks more intimidating on RTW engine than Bloodveld :)
