September 12, 2018 - 6:45am
Fantasy Flight Games introduces the Ventala Skirmishers Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game, which is now available for pre-order at your local retailer or online . The hooved nomadic hunters known as the Ventala are unyielding warriors in battle, using their short-range javelins and razor-sharp knives to strike down the enemies of the Aymhelin and defend their land. They are lending their power to the Latari as the threat to their forest homes grows.


Allies for the forest

Although not originally allies, the Ventala have proudly stood alongside the Latari for centuries. Now, in the face of such great adversity, their friendship will not falter. The Ventala Skirmishers Unit Expansion provides everything you need to add a full unit of these skilled soldiers to your Latari army. The expansion includes four sculpted figures and two cavalry movement trays to house them. In addition, you will also find one unit card and command tool, a collection of tokens, and twelve upgrade cards to customize your army of forest defenders. Among these, you gain a new training upgrade to highlight the Latari’s mastery of ranged attacks, with either the bow or the javelin. The Flank Fire upgrade allows your Ventala Skirmishers, or other ranged units in your Latari army, to perform ranged attacks using their side firing arcs, making it easier to launch your assault without sacrificing speed or maneuverability. The Warden of Horn and Branch skill action, allows your Latari allies to engage in some cooperative hunting. For example, the Darnati Warriors may have Warden of Horn and Branch equipped when they face off against Lord Vorun'thul and the Deathborn Legion. The swordsmen, who do not have a ranged attack on their command tool, use their skill action to send in three of their Ventala allies to surround the vampire lord. With any luck, you will quickly dispatch the legion and ensure that Aymhelin remains protected and pure from the corruption that plagues the rest of Terrinoth.
