Eine neue Heldin der Horden der Uthuk Y’llan kommt von Fantasy Flight Games für Runewars.

Fantasy Flight Games Runewars Kethra A'laak Hero Expansion 1

As the Empyrean blesses all that is good and pure in magic, so the Ynfernael empowers that which is corrupt and dark. Such evil power is difficult to control, but deep in the Ru Darklands, many tribesmen of the Uthuk Y’llan offer themselves to the forces of the Ynfernael, destroying themselves in pursuit of power. But there are a select few among the accursed people who can bend this wicked magic to their will, including the witches of the Blood Coven and the most honored among their ranks, Kethra A’laak.

The witch is considered to be the most ruthless of the Blood Coven, and while her loyalty is sworn to her sister, a dangerous ambition burns within her and she knows she is destined for more. Now, as the locust swarm of the Uthuk Y’llan goes to war, command over all of Terrinoth is within her reach. Today, we’re pleased to offer you a closer look at the Kethra A’laak Hero Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game, available for pre-order now at your local retailer or online through our website!

Kethra A’laak Hero Expansion – 24,95 USD

The Uthuk’s forces are fueled by the dark magic enacted by witches of the Blood Coven. Among their ranks, none are more ruthless or more feared than the mighty Kethra A’laak. Riding into battle astride her monstrous flesh ripper, Hurokk, Kethra controls the chaos of the Uthuk Y’llan army to spill as much blood as possible, whether it be that of enemy forces, innocent villagers, or even the weakest of her own infantry.

The Kethra A’laak Hero Expansion includes one cavalry figurine and one infantry figurine, as well as one plastic siege movement tray. This pack also comes equipped with one terrain card, objective card, deployment card, and two condition cards, as well as six available upgrades and a collection of markers and tokens.

Twisted Corruption

Kethra A’laak dreams of conquest and glory, desiring power beyond even what her status in the coven can provide. She is prepared to strike down any who stand against her, even if the whole of Mennara set itself in her path. When she is participating in a melee, Kethra A’laak rolls two white dice, a power only matched in force and consistency by Waiqar the Undying’s loyal soldier Ardus Ix’Erebus. This, combined with her Brutal 1 and Precise 1 keywords, is sure to spread fear in the hearts of any who must face her on the battlefield.

But Kethra A’laak’s true power comes from the magic she is able to imbue into her allies before the battle even begins. Beyond the sheer force of the sorceress herself, the Kethra A’laak Hero Expansion adds a new layer of savagery to your strategy by introducing a new condition to Runewars Miniatures Game. After the deployment stage of setup, Kethra can use her Twist Bone ability to imbue any of her Uthuk allies with her dark magic, causing Unnatural Growths to erupt from their skins.

These razor-sharp spines turn a warrior’s very body into a weapon, dealing two damage to any who attack them in a melee. This ability mirrors Kethra’s own melee ability, but without the need to spend a surge. After all, Kethra still thinks of herself as a leader within the army of the Uthuk Y’llan, meaning she is at her strongest when those who rely on her are free to wreak as much havoc as possible.

Demonic Priestess

The Kethra A’laak Hero Expansion includes two beautiful yet monstrous figures; one of Kethra alone and one of her astride her bonded Flesh Ripper, Hurokk, whom she summoned early in her mystic teachings by offering the souls of her rivals to the Ynfernael, along with her pledge of service to the demonic powers. In addition to the sorceress herself, this expansion also offers you one new terrain piece, a new objective and deployment card, two condition cards, a collection of tokens, and six upgrade cards to elevate the power of your Uthuk army.

When you send Kethra A’laak into the heart of your locust swarm,

using her as a figure upgrade in your Uthuk infantry, you can replace any one of your unit’s dice with a white die during a melee. Then, she still has access to the skill action detailed on her unit card, using the blood of her allies to cast dark magic that damages any enemy who comes too close.

Otherwise, you may simply choose to deploy the wandering witch as her own unit, fortifying her to stand against even the strongest soldiers of the Daqan. When Kethra A’laak wears her Kingsbone Armor,

Flames of Ambition

As the army of the Uthuk Y’llan sets its sights on Terrinoth, Kethra A’laak’s eyes are on the throne. For now, she plays the role of an obedient, if willful, sister of the Blood Coven, but Kethra knows her time will soon come. She shall settle for nothing less than absolute rule, and if she rules over a land of ash and smoke, so be it.

    • Jup, meine Wenigkeit zusammen mit ein paar Kumpels (alles in allem 6 Leute). Ist ein schönes Spiel, aber die Minis sind natürlich wie immer Geschmackssache. Ansonsten aber sehr gelungen und zusammen mit Relams of Terrinoth bekommt man auch Unmengen an Hintergrundmaterial für Ideen.

      • Hat aber nichts mit „Runewars – Kampf um Terrinoth“ zu tun, oder? Nutzt ja gleiches Logo, gleichen Namen und ist von der gleichen Firma – sieht aber spielerisch nach etwas ganz anderem aus. (?)

      • Realms of Terrinoth gehört zum Rollenspiel im Runebound-Universum. Sehr schickes Buch mit sehr, sehr viel Hintergrund zu Terrinoth. Uns macht es Freude und das Spiel bietet eine angenehme Abwechslung zu unseren anderen Projekten.
