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.

From the preview:

None exemplify the primal, wild nature of the Verdelam more than the Leonx Riders. Charging into battle atop their ferocious Leonx, large felines native to the Aymhelin, these Elven warriors pierce through enemy lines with the force of a storm, only to use their lightning speed to evade counter-blows and change their angle of attack with the swiftness of a gale. Each half of the pair trusts each other with its life, and the bond a Leonx shares with its rider is akin to family. In battle, these wild riders coordinate their movements as one, fusing Elven skill with the predatory instincts of one of the most fearsome beasts in the world.

As the battle for Terrinoth escalates, the Latari Elves leave the safety of the Aymhelin Forest to battle the forces of darkness that gather in the east. Before confronting the Uthuk Y’llan, we offer you a closer look at the Leonx Riders of the Latari Elves Army Expansion who, under the leadership of Aliana of Summersong, make up the cavalry of the Latari army.
