Welcome back to Call of the Everchosen, our regular feature bringing new rules to your games of Warcry, such as exciting campaigns in benighted cities. This week it’s time to bring the Lumineth Realm-lords to your skirmish games, and there’s nobody better to tell you about it than the Warcry rules-lord himself, Sam Pearson.
Sam: This month’s instalment of Call of the Everchosen is our biggest yet. Not only does it feature another brand new narrative campaign, but it also includes a full set of fighter and ability cards for the Lumineth Realm-lords. Now you can include many of the recently released miniatures as fighters in your warband.
Lumineth Realm-lords Fighter Cards
With a total of 19 fighter cards to choose from, you can put together a vast array of Lumineth warbands for your battles. For example, you could focus on the Hurakan temple and have a band of Hurakan Windchargers led by a Hurakan Windmage. Or you could take the new Vanari Lord Regent to lead a mixed warband into battle.
No matter the style and theme of your Lumineth warband, the Vanari Bladelords make for a tempting option too with their powerful [Quad] ability Perfect Strike.
With a potential output of 33 damage points from that bonus attack action, Bladelords have the ability to take down an Iron Golems Ogor Breacher in a single strike. Of course, you have to roll seven 6s to pull it off, but don’t let that stop you from trying – just think of the glory!
The Forlorn Hope
Also included is a new narrative campaign titled ‘The Forlorn Hope’. As with the previous narrative campaigns we’ve shared in these articles, this one is fairly quick to play through – with three battles in total, you can even play it from start to finish in a single evening.
This time we see the noble Lumineth Realm-lords pitted against the nefarious Ossiarch Bonereapers. It follows the events in Broken Realms: Teclis, as the Light of Eltharion marches alongside a band of the brave few to defeat Arkhan the Black upon the Realm’s Edge of Hysh.
What makes this narrative campaign exciting is that players get to use characters that would be too powerful for a regular game of Warcry. Both the Light of Eltharion and Arkhan the Black have fighter cards and abilities to use during this campaign, and the Ossiarch Bonereapers player can unleash a Nightmare Predator endless spell upon their foe.
Thanks, Sam. Will you be taking the forces of the Lumineth Realm-lords onto the brutal battlefields of Warcry? Which is your favourite of the new fighter cards?
