Fantasy Flight Previews Outland Scouts for Runewars

We’ve gotten quite a few previews of upcoming releases for Runewars that were monsters, or some elves, or some undead. It feels like it’s been a while since the humans have gotten anything new for Runewars. Well, that ends… well… soon, as the Outland Scouts will be making their way to tabletops in the near future.

Fantasy Flight Previews Three New Uthuk Units for Runewars

The ravening hoards are getting even more ravenous. Three new units will be making their way to the Uthuk ranks for Runewars soon, and Fantasy Flight is giving you a look at them. So, if you’re an Uthuk commander, you can start thinking about how to integrate them into your strategy. If you’re anyone else, you can think about how to stop them.

Fantasy Flight Previews Prince Faolan and the Ventala Skirmishers For Runewars

A new pair of Latari Elf sets for Runewars are on preview from Fantasy Flight. They’ve got a new character in the form of Prince Faolan, as well as a new cavalry unit (well, centaur unit, but that’s basically cavalry) with the Ventala Skirmishers. You can check out these new kits now.

Fantasy Flight Previews Wraiths For Runewars

Who truly knows what happens to us when we die? Well, in the world of Terrinoth, death is certainly not always the end of us.

New Uthuk Y’llan Releases Available For Runewars

The ravenous hordes are getting even more ravenous and horde-y. Three new box sets are now available for the Uthuk Y’llan for Runewars. They’ve got the fast and agile Flesh Rippers, the hulking Spined Threshers, and the amassed Berserkers unit, all available to spread fear and chaos on the tabletops.

Fantasy Flight Previews Baron Zachareth For Runewars

The kingdoms of man are fighting against elves, undead, and demon-creatures from the wastes. In these times, some morals are lost, or at least, past deeds are glossed over. Such is the case of Baron Zachareth. To some, a saint. To others, a demon (though different from the demon-creatures). Either way, he’s coming to the tabletop for Runewars.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Previews Spined Threshers for Runewars

The Runewars previews just keep a-comin’. This time around, we get a look at the Spined Threshers. I mean, I certainly wouldn’t mind some extra mouths. Though having such long tongues right near all those sharp teeth and pinching claws seems like a recipe for a bitten tongue.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Lord Vorun’thul Expansion For Runewars

Vampires. You can’t really have undead without at least one vampire stalking around. They’re one of the most iconic form of the … uh… species? Anyway, the undead faction for Runewars is getting itself a new vampire in the form of Lord Vorun’thul. You can check him out here, in both his “human” and “bat-man (not Batman)” forms.

Fantasy Flight Previews Uthuk Y’llan’s Berserkers For Runewars

The Uthu Y’llan are already a group of pretty deranged murder-machines. So you know it’s really something when a group stands out from that. The Berserkers are a whirlwind of claws that will rip any enemies they get a hold of to pieces. These terrifying new additions will be available soon for Runewars. Get yourself a look at just what they can do in this preview.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Darnati Warriors For Runewars

The Flesh Rippers aren’t the only new units coming for Runewars from Fantasy Flight. The elves are getting a new unit, too. They’re the Darnati Warriors and they show that Elves don’t just hit from afar, but can run on up into combat and start swinging like everyone else.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Previews Flesh Rippers for Runewars Minis Game

The Uthuk army is full of models that will gladly rip their enemy’s flesh from their bones. However, none do it with such efficiency and speed as the Flesh Rippers. They’re a new cavalry unit coming for the Runewars minis game, and you can get a preview of them here from Fantasy Flight.

New Releases and Pre-Orders Available From Fantasy Flight Games

Everyone over at Fantasy Flight has apparently been busy. They’ve got a whole host of new releases available, along with new pre-orders. If you’re looking for the new Runewars figures, they’ve got ’em. If you’re looking for the new A Game of Thrones Catan, they’ve got it. If you’re looking for their new Legacy of Dragonholt game, they’ve got it. And if you want to pick up the next wave of X-Wing ships, they’ve got ’em… coming soon, but you can put your name down on the list to get ’em.

Fantasy Flight Previews Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit For Runewars

Even rampaging hordes have those individuals at the front, directing it. It’s no good to have a whole army of slathering monsters and soldiers if they’re headed off in the wrong direction. That’s where the Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit comes in. They’ll make sure all that destructive effort goes in the right direction. We get a preview of them here from Fantasy Flight.
Continue reading

New Runewars Releases Available From Fantasy Flight Games

Runewars generals rejoice! For there are new releases at hand. On the one side, the Daqan have a new set of heavy crossbowmen. Pting! Pting! (yes, that’s what a crossbow sounds like, and you can’t tell me otherwise) Meanwhile, the undead ride into battle (literally) with their new Death Knights.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts Uthuk Y’llan Preview For Runewars

My love for you is like a truck! Berserker!
Would you like to… I probably shouldn’t finish that line. I try and keep this place PG-13, after all. Anyway, berserkers are what you get a look at in this Uthuk Y’llan preview for Runewars. You also get to check out Flesh Rippers and Spined Threshers. But I don’t know any songs involving those.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New Uthuk Y’llan Army Preview For Runewars

Within the demonic hordes of the Uthuk Y’llan of Runewars, there are heroes. No, most of the outside world wouldn’t use that term to describe them, probably preferring something a bit more like, “grotesque monster” or “awful horror” or “not a really nice guy,” but that’s all in perception. In this preview, we get a look at Ravos the Everhungry (man, I can certainly relate some days *tummy rumbles*).
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Maegan Cyndewin For Runewars

Walking into battle is so passe. Why not, instead, head into a fracas on a giant demon-moose-thing? I’d probably go for that over walking. That’s what Maegan Cyndewin can do for the Litari forces in Runewars. She brings some magical power to the elves, having sworn vengeance against the Uthu Y’llan that killed her mom (though had been partially summoned by her dad. Whoops.). Get a look at what she’s capable of in this preview.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Previews Aymhelin Scions For Runewars

When it comes to the Latari Elves in Runewars, they don’t need a Lorax to speak of the trees. The trees are perfectly capable of expressing themselves on their own. Which means woe to those that would try and do harm to them or those that protect them. They are the Aymhelin Scions, and they’re getting an expansion pack coming soon for the game. In this preview, get a look at what you can expect in the box.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Kethra A’laak Hero Pack Expansion for Runewars

While giant swarms might seem to move without real direction or purpose at times, it’s really key individuals within that mass that are pointing them which way to go. One such individual within the Uthuk Y’llan faction for Runewars is Kethra A’laak. Her ambition pushes her to ever-greater deeds and raise her powerful sorcery to all new levels. She’ll be making her way to your tabletops soon, and Fantasy Flight has given us a preview so you can know what to expect.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Outland Scouts for Runewars

Armies are big, unwieldy sorts of things. They don’t exactly turn on a dime, either, so you’d better know where you’re headed and what’s coming up by sending out scouting parties. The last thing you want is for your entire army to be surprised by what’s ahead and getting destroyed because of it. This holds true on the tabletop, too. As such, Fantasy Flight Games is coming out with Outland Scouts for Runewars.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Wraiths Unit Expansion For Runewars

We’re getting closer to October. I know, for a lot of my friends, it’s always been October. It’s when ghosts and goblins and whatnot all come forth and scare the living. Well, if you want that sort of thing to happen on your gaming table, too, you might want to check out the upcoming Wraiths Unit Expansion for Runewars. Fantasy Flight Games has posted up a little preview for you.

Midweek Corner Snippets

As I’ve said numerous times over the past couple weeks, Gen Con is coming. Like… tomorrow. There’s going to be, oh, about a bajillion things going on, so it’s best to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Plus, since we didn’t get it on Monday (and there’s a chance I might not be able to get to it tomorrow), let’s go ahead and get some Terrain Corner pieces in here, too.

So, in all we have: 1-48TACTIC now has free add ons, Warzone Studio Releases Gigafactory Battle Mat, Brigade Models Releases 2mm Scale City Blocks, Crocodile Games Releases Remastered Abominable Snowbeast, Badlands: Fantasy Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargames, New Statuesque Female Heads on Sale for 10% off, Darkmook Paper Miniatures Releases Supernatural Western Town Terrain, A Dog’s Life Introduces Tillman the Skateboarding dog, The Army Painter Announces Runewars Paint Sets, and Arid Plain! Fantasy Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargames.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Death Cavalry For Runewars

Even the dead hate to simply walk their way into battle. And what’s a horse to do after it’s been put out to pasture and, well… passed? Their glory days can be relived during the nightmare life of an undead cavalry horse. That’s just what will be galloping their way to Runewars tabletops soon. Fantasy Flight Games has posted up a preview.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Heavy Crossbowmen For Runewars

In the fantasy battles all across Terrinoth, you might not want your opponent, with their swords and spears, to get all that close to you. Those things can hurt! As such, it’s not a bad idea to reach out and attack at a distance. That’s what the Heavy Crossbowmen are here to do, and they’re ready to punch through enemy armor while hopefully soaking up whatever long-distance attacks your opponent can dish out, too.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Darnati Warriors For Runewars

While the Elves are usually known for their prowess with the bow and arrow, those ranged weapons might not always be the best during a fight, especially if things get up close and personal. Thankfully, many elves are also proficient with swords, such as the Darnati Warriors. We get a preview of their unit box for Runewars in this preview.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Deepwood Archers for Runewars

Where you have elves, you’re going to have elven archers. It’s just one of those things. The Latari elves from Runewars are certainly no different. They’ll be getting a Deepwod Archers expansion set soon, and so you can know what you’re getting into (whether they’re fighting for you or against you), Fantasy Flight has posted up a preview.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Announces 3 New Uthuk Y’llan Boxes for Runewars

The Uthuk Y’llan are coming soon to Runewars games. These desert-dwelling monsters once had control of most of Terrinoth. They’ve decided it’s time once again for their rule to extend across the land. To help out, they’re bulking up their numbers. Fantasy Flight Games has announced 3 new unit boxes that you can add to your armies.
Continue reading

New Releases Available For Runewars

Fantasy Flight has a pair of new releases available for Runewars. They’re the Carrion Lancers and Rune Golems sets to help you expand out from what you got in the main box. So if you’d like to add a bit more giant worm cavalry or some semi-sentient magic rock monsters, now’s your chance.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Latari Elves Command Expansion for Runewars

Fantasy Flight is heading back from the harsh demon-like Uthuk Y’llan to the deep and lush forests in this preview. The Latari Elves need themselves some command upgrades, and so that’s what is on display here.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Expansion For Runewars

The Uthuk Y’llan are a dastardly race that terrorized Terrinoth centuries ago. Over that time, they were reduced to legends. Scary tales to tell children around campfires. But those tales were true. And now they’re back to reclaim what had been theirs. At the end of their units, the commanders and other special troops help lead them forth to victory. Fantasy Flight Games has posted up a preview of this Command set.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Uthuk Y’llan Army Expansion For Runewars

We’ve got the humans. We’ve got the undead. We’ll soon be getting the elves. And now Fantasy Flight has announced the 4th faction for Runewars. It’s the Uthuk Y’llan. They’re savage demon-like things ready to spread their evilness all across Terrinoth once more.

New Runewars Releases Available From Fantasy Flight Games

Last weekend, I got to watch my first full game of Runewars. It’s an interesting-looking game. The two players were playing a 200 point army, which is apparently a “standard size.” Though, since both really just had a couple starter-boxes to go with, it was kind of a stretch to get to those point totals. What they needed were some expansions. Well, this week, it’ll be much easier for them to get to those totals, since there’s four new expansion boxes available for the game, two for each faction.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Leonx Riders For Runewars

I’ve always been more of a “dog person” than a “cat person.” And within that, I’ve always preferred the larger breeds (German Shepherd and Great Pyrenees) to the smaller ones. However, if I could get a Leonx and have it as a pet, yeah, I’d probably want to ride it into battle, too. Well, the Latari Elves in Runewars have Leonx, and they do ride them into battle, and you can soon add them to your Runewars forces. Take a look at how they’ll work in this preview.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Deepwood Archers For Runewars

When you think of elves, you think of guys with long hair, pointy ears, and bows and arrows. It’s just sort of a thing you expect. Well, in Runewars, the Latari Elves aren’t going to disappoint you, as they do have a regiment of guys with long hair, pointy ears, and bows and arrows. They’re called the Deepwood Archers and Fantasy Flight has posted up a preview.
