Fearsome Forest

The Aymhelin Scions Unit Expansion Is Now Available

#RunewarsMinis

When the Aymhelin Forest falls under threat, the Latari Elves call upon the forces of nature to defend their home. The most powerful of these are the Aymhelin Scions who pull their roots from the soil to take to the battlefield. With their arcane link to the earth, these siege units are fearsome to behold as they grip their enemies in catching roots that prevent any means of escape.

As the armies of the Uthuk Y’llan and Waiqar the Undying take to the battlefield, the Latari must call forth their mightiest fighters to defend the Deepwood. Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce that the Aymhelin Scions Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game is on sale now!

Growing Strong

When a young Finwalyn is ready to awaken for the first time, it burgeons, uncoupling its roots from its mother tree and breaking free of the soil. During times of great need, Elven wealdcallers will expedite this process by singing songs of movement and the dawn. The youngest, and some say the fiercest, of their kind are known as the Scions of the Aymhelin. On their first steps after awakening, the Scions’ power is erratic, with all manner of small trees and roots splitting from the earth in its wake to grow wild and unchecked. Mirroring the youthful zeal and temper of these young Finwalyn, this chaotic growth may last for centuries until the sapling matures into a Forest Guardian. These lumbering giants are great of strength and size, and even greater of prowess in battle.

Once they have been awakened, the Aymhelin Scions use their arcane connection to the earth to tap into the power of the forest. The Scion’s link to the natural world offers them a defense that increases with the number of stable energy runes in play, while their command tool features a march action that pairs their speed to the number of natural energy runes in play. The runes can make the Scions powerful, but if the odds are stacked against them and the runes are not in their favor, their command tool bears a defense modifier that can be paired with any action.

The Aymhelin Scion Unit Expansion includes two detailed Scion figurines that players can customize however they wish, defining the Scions by the force they belong to or even by season. This pack also includes two siege movement trays to house the miniatures, a collection of tokens, and eight available upgrade cards to strengthen the forest guardians. Some of these are unique to the Aymhelin Scions, offering advantages based on how players commanding the Latari army fit the forest guardians into their strategies. A Frontline Aymhelin Scion may exhaust their upgrade card to inflict a stun token during a melee or ranged attack, as the Scion entangles your enemy in its roots.

These forest guardians use their roots to stun and ensnare their opponents even at great distances. When participating in either a ranged attack or a melee, the Aymhelin Scions may spend two surges to inflict a stun token on the defending unit. They also have the special ability to give their enemies immobilize tokens any time they collide with an enemy or an enemy collides with them. One the enemies of the Latari are forced into combat, it is a simple matter for the Aymhelin Scions to squeeze the life out of those who would dare to threaten their home and their allies.
