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.

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*).

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.
Continue reading

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.

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.

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.

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.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Previews the Aymhelin Scions For Runewars

Each faction in Runewars has their various troop units and characters, but they’ve also got that one “big” unit that stalks around the board, being rather intimidating and taking out enemies. For the upcoming Latari Elves faction, those are the Aymhelin Scions, of which we get a preview here.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Aliana of Summersong for Runewars

While the rank-and-file troopers might get much of the job done, they wouldn’t be nearly as effective without the strong leaders that spearhead the charges and direct the arrows. For the Latari Elves, the upcoming faction for Runewars, one of their leaders is Aliana of Summersong. Fantasy Flight has posted up a preview of what you can expect for when she hits the table.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Death Knights Expansion for Runewars

From one fantasy game to another. Fantasy Flight Games continues to expand their Runewars line for the two armies currently available. In this case, the undead are getting a mounted knights unit, the Death Knights.
Continue reading

New Releases for Runewars Available From Fantasy Flight Games

A couple of my friends have gotten deep into Runewars. They feel the game flows fairly well and plays rather smoothly. I’ve yet to really have a chance to give it a go (so many games, so little time… *sigh*). For those that were waiting for the game to get a few more miniatures out onto the shelves before they dove in, there’s some new releases available now, for both the Daqan Lords and Undead.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews New Undead Expansions for Runewars

The armies of Runewars are currently pretty small. But everyone’s gotta start somewhere. As time goes on, more and more expansions are being added, helping keep the excitement going. Fantasy Flight has announced several new expansions, some old, and some new, that will help expand your undead forces.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Heavy Crossbowmen For Runewars

In fantasy combat games, thinning out the enemy ranks before you enter melee with them is a must. You don’t want entire regiments of enemy soldiers meeting up with yours, if you can avoid it. In order to help out with that, the Daqan Lords in Runewars are getting some ranged support in the form of heavy crossbowmen.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Lord Hawthorne For Runewars

Fantasy armies usually have a special, named hero or two in them, leading their troops into battle. The armies in Runewars are no different. Soon, the Daqan Lords will be able to add Lord Hawthorne (with or without his horse) to their forces. We get a look at what he’s capable of in this preview.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews New Daqan Expansions for Runewars

How’s everyone out there enjoying Runewars? I’ve not had much chance to look over it. We’ve got a set in the game library, but other projects have kept me from getting the game on the board, so I’ve only looked it over. The set, being just a starter, can certainly use some more to go with it. Fantasy Flight Games is coming out with those expansions, and we get a look at a pair of them in this article.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Latari Command and Character for Runewars

When the Latari Elves make their way to tabletops, joining the other two factions of Runewars, Fantasy Flight doesn’t want them to lag behind in terms of options on the field. So, since there’s characters and command elements for the others, the elves are getting them, too. You can check them out here.
