Deadly Lancers

The Carrion Lancers Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game Is Now Available

#RunewarsMinis

The legions of Waiqar the Undying grow with their carrion worms, the larger the forces of undead marching, the more monstrous these vile beasts become. These massive, grotesque creatures swiftly devour everything in their path, expelling a putrid fluid on their prey that melts both armor and flesh before attacking. And they perform this hideous act under the cold direction of the undead’s fiercest warriors, the Carrion Lancers.

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce that the Carrion Lancers Unit Expansion  for Runewars Miniatures Game is on sale now!

Insatiable Hunger

The Carrion Lancers Unit Expansion comes with two unpainted miniatures that players can design to their taste, same as the undead warriors do when raising these monstrously malformed beasts. Waiqar’s cruelest carrion worm masters force feed the hideous grubs nearly any substance at hand, watching the beasts adopt the properties of what they consume, whether it be the flesh of their enemies or prized gems.

The toxic acid spewed by the carrion worms can affect their enemies at great distances. Once per turn, the Carrion Lancer may choose one unengaged enemy unit up to five range away and in line of sight to receive one blight token. This ability prepares the Carrion Lancers for martial engagement later in the battle, bringing even high defense creatures such as the Rune Golems to their knees. The worm’s enemies are ready to be devoured before they even face the savage beast.

Foul Mount

With a cost of fifteen points per unit, it is a simple task for a player commanding the Undying to build a swarm of Carrion Lancers to consume their enemies—a feat which will be quickly rewarded. These beasts are much quicker than their immense size would tell, and bring their ferocity to bear quite quickly. The high-impact siege unit’s initiative falls in the middle of a round, between three and seven, rather than later, but can manage an initiative four charge. The lancers can also traverse great distances and move a distance up to four, reaching those that might feel they are safe from the beasts' wrath. This speed strikes fear into the hearts of Waiqar’s enemies and makes the formidable mounts terrible to behold on the battlefield.

When the Carrion Lancers attack, they roll one red die and two blue. This gives them a high probability of rolling at least one surge icon. A lancer engaged in combat may spend this to add a mortal strike against a defender if they bear a blight token, which may have been inflicted by the carrion worm earlier in the battle.

Additionally, the carrion worms are unquestionably loyal to their undead overlords, as indicated by their Steadfast [Doubt] modifier. This means that while the unit is suffering a morale test, they may treat Doubt cards as having one additional morale icon. The Carrion Lancers Unit Expansion also comes with eight available upgrade cards, two of which are specific to the Carrion Lancers, to make the intimidating fiends even more powerful.
