Unleash the Locust Horde!

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the Uthuk Y’llan Army Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game! Build your swarming ranks with the twisted creatures of the Uthuk Y’llan as you hunger to bring Terrinoth to its knees.

Long ago, the Uthuk Y’llan ravaged the land like locusts, consuming everything in their path, leaving only destruction in their wake. After the horde’s defeat at the end of the First Darkness, the Uthuk disappeared and their memory faded into legend. But the Ru Darklands begin to stir again as the demonic warbands emerge from the Black Citadel to spread chaos and destruction once more.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces the Reanimate Archers Unit for Runewars

rwm08_box_left

May 23rd, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Reanimate Archers Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game is available now!

The expansion features eight Reanimate Archer figures, enough to field a two-tray unit on its own or attach to a larger unit. These figures are identical to the ones found in the Runewars Miniatures Game Core Set and feature five new upgrade cards to help customize any army.

The Reanimate Archers are experts at ranged attacks, and the figures found in the Reanimate Archers Unit Expansion can be combined with the figures found in the core set to create a 32-point unit, or can be fielded on their own as an 18-point unit.

The arrows of the Reanimate Archers do more than puncture. They get inside their target’s skin, infecting them with rot and disease, represented by their ability to spend two surges to give their target a blight token when they make a ranged attack. Blight tokens can weaken opposing units by removing their die before an attack, and with the Reanimate Archer’s ability to add a free surge to their strikes with their modifier dial, it’s something they can accomplish often. Furthermore, the shambling bowmen are united in their service to Waiqar, and with the “Steadfast” keyword, it becomes difficult to shake their resolve with a doubt card during a morale test.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Death Knights Expansion for Runewars

May 22nd, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Death Knights Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game!

The Death Knights Unit Expansion features four Death Knight figures and two plastic cavalry movement trays for use with the forces of Waiqar, as well as five upgrade cards to customize your Runewars Miniatures Game armies. The expansion also includes panic, stun, and unit ID Tokens, alongside a new condition card and token, for use with a special new type of upgrade included with the Death Knights.

The Death Knights bring fear to all unfortunate enough to encounter them. Any time they collide with an opposing unit, the Impact keyword gives the opposing unit panic tokens equal to the number of stable energy runes on the field. Additional panic tokens immediately puts the Death Knights’ target at a disadvantage, and they’re now in position to be targeted by the Death Knights’ deadly melee attack—two red dice and one blue die.

The Death Knights also come with built-in defenses. Anytime an enemy unit targets them, a mortal strike is subtracted from the attack, which nearly ensures their hefty defense of three will have to be penetrated if the foes of Waiqar have any hope of taking the riders down. Furthermore, with the Steadfast [Fear] ability, the Death Knights are difficult to rattle, increasing the morale icon of fear cards by one during morale tests.

The figures and trays included in the Death Knights Unit Expansion can be fielded together for 24 points, and additional copies can be purchased to field 42 and 55 point units.

May 20th, 2017

From Wizards to Banner Guards, every soldier has a role to fulfill in the armies of the Daqan Lords. When the time comes, these warriors band together to craft one of the most fearsome forces in Terrinoth, with the ability to crush those that would stand against them underfoot.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Daqan Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game is available now!

This expansion includes four brand-new figures as well as eighteen new upgrade cards, many of which are used to bring these figures into your army by replacing a standard figure in the upgraded Daqan Lords unit with one of several powerful warriors. The mystic wizard brings the power of ancient runes to your infantry units, the mighty Champion leads soldiers to unlikely victories, the inspiring Cornicen brings discipline to wavering soldiers, and the unyielding Banner Guard reminds inspires formidable loyalty.

Fantasy Flight Games Announce Heavy Crossbowmen for Runewars

May 11th, 2017

Paragons of disciplined training and wielders of some of the most sophisticated military weaponry available, the heavy crossbowmen of the Daqan Lords represent one of the greatest defensive forces in Terrinoth. Armed with specially designed bulwark shields and heavy crossbows, these warriors can withstand even the fiercest hail of enemy fire while unleashing their own torrent of death. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Heavy Crossbowmen Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game!

Proficiency with the crossbow is not enough to qualify for a heavy crossbow unit, as only the largest and most physically imposing men and women have the great strength and stamina required to reload the crossbows and wield the thick wood and iron shields that complete these warriors’ arsenal. These bulwark shields are designed to withstand vicious attacks from axe and arrow alike while still allowing a large crossbow to rest securely on its edge, mitigating any compromise to accuracy. These shields were designed to provide the protection an archer shooting from a tower’s bulwark would have, while allowing for mobility on the field.

Whether motivated by duty or coin, Heavy Crossbowmen are integral to defending the Land of Steel from the forces of darkness at its borders.

April 5th, 2017

The forces of Waiqar the Undying come in many forms and take many shapes. Though they all serve their master faithfully, some perform their work through swords and blades, others through the art of necromancy. Still others rally the hordes of undead around them, keeping the rhythm of armies with sinister percussion or heralding the destruction of all who stand in their way as standard bearers.

Today, Fantasy Flight Games are looking at the Waiqar Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion for the Runewars Miniatures Game.  With four new figures and eighteen new upgrade cards, the expansion offers plenty of ways to customize your Runewars Miniatures Game armies while bolstering the forces of Waiqar the Undying.

February 8th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce four new expansion packs for Runewars Miniatures Game:

  • Oathsworn Cavalry Unit Expansion
  • Daqan Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion
  • Reanimate Archers Unit Expansion
  • Waiqar Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion

As your army grows, each of these expansions gives you a different way to grow the forces of the Daqan Lords or Waiqar the Undying. The two unit expansions contain enough figures to field a unit of Oathsworn Cavalry or Reanimate Archers, identical to the units in the Runewars Core Set, but offering new upgrade cards and allowing you to field larger armies on the battlefield. Then, you can increase your command over the forces of Terrinoth or the undead with two unit upgrade expansions. Each unit upgrade expansion offers a wealth of upgrade cards and four figures that can be added to an infantry formation to greatly increase that unit’s power.
