Though Davos has apparently decreed that the game is over with, Fantasy Flight, in staunch refusal to succumb to his whims, has a trio of new Runewars releases available for you today. The Uthuk Y'llan demon hordes are being reinforced with some archers, a new set of heavy hitters, and a new character that you can all pick up now.
The elves of Latari are bulking up their forces and keeping their forests safe with a pair of new releases for Runewars. On one side, it's a centauric cavalry unit. The other, a new hero in both mounted and on-foot versions. We must protect the trees!
Be obscene! Be, be obscene! Be obscene!
It's nice when I see representation of my own body type in a game. Mostly, you've got sleek, cut, muscular dudes. It's nice when a big walking monster takes the field, shoving whatever they can into their mouths as they go. That's what we've got here with the Obscenes, a new unit coming for Runewars.
The Latari elves in Runewars have had a rather troubled past. Wars, exile, and isolation. But when evil comes a-callin', they have heroes looking to take it on, rather than continue to ignore the outside world. One such is Prince Faolan. Get a look at his stats and abilities for Runewars in this preview from Fantasy Flight.
In any army, there's going to be those that stand out from the rest. In Runewars, they're the heroes. Two new ones are available now. They're the vampiric Lord Vorun'thul and the stone-bull-riding Baron Zachareth.
Out in the deserts of Terrinoth, there are some really wild beasts, savage and seemingly untamable. However, Beastmaster Th'Uk Tar is capable of doing just that, bending these creature's wills to his, calling them in service of the demon hordes. In this preview for Runewars, we get a look at him in his two incarnations, ready to hit the tables for you.
Killing the enemy at range goes a long way to winning a conflict. If you can get to your opponent and they can't get to you, it's going to tip all the balance in your favor. And while the demon legions love to get in there close and personal and really rip enemies to shreds, they also will employ bowmen to thin enemy ranks from a distance. In this preview for Runewars, we get a look at the Viper Legion.
I've often mentioned that just walking into battle is the sucker's way to go. However, when you're a centaur, it's not so bad. You've got the speed and agility of cavalry, without having to worry about falling off your horse. The Ventala Skirmishers are a centaur unit coming for the elves in Runewars. Fantasy Flight's posted up a preview to show them off.
Runewars continues to soldier on, what with getting new soldier minis at a fairly regular basis. In this preview, we get a look at a new hero for the human faction. It's Baron Zachareth of Carthridge, and he hates walking into battle, so he got himself a golem bull to ride in on. Can't say that's a bad choice, really.
