Fearless lizard-like warriors, their wounds fuel their combat rage, making them faster.
Saurian Broodguards initially walk fairly slowly compared to enemies in the previous stages. However, the more damage they receive, the faster they run; a Broodguard at death's door can move at an incredible speed and easily zip past your defences.
There are many effective strategies to counter Saurian Broodguards. As they are not especially durable nor powerful, they do not pose much threat even in large groups, as long as you have sufficient number of soldiers to keep them busy, as their speed increase when they get hurt.
- Alric by himself can slay small numbers of Saurian Broodguards. Place him near Necromancers to make use of the dead bodies, and provide support with Barracks and towers in later waves.
- Even without heroes, Archmages and Necromancers can kill Broodguards fairly quickly. The same can be said for Barrage. Otherwise, you can use Barracks to stop them while build some artilleries to blow them to pieces.
Saurian means belonging or pertaining to the Sauria, a group of reptiles including lizards and crocodile, thus the look.
Also Saurians have been in the famous comic series, doctor who.
There has also been a similar species in doctor who, called the Silurians. Like the saurians, the Silurians also live underground and the Silurians have advanced beam weaponry not unlike the blazefang's heat ray.
