legions of darkness Legions of Darkness, an expansion to Fantasy Flight's 2013 Warhammer: Diskwars and expected to release soon.  Fantasy Flight Games published another preview for the expansion, this time looking closer at the Dark Elves and Skaven. The Skaven disks in Legions of Darkness emphasize the ratmen's warpstone-fueled ranged attacks, rather than their horde tactics, and these first Skaven units are best used to give your Destruction armies a more powerful reach. The Dark Elves are deceitful, merciless raiders, and players will do best with Dark Elf regiments that utilize the sort of aggressive tactics that reflect their nature. Like the High Elves, Dark Elves must control engagements in order to win in melee because they cannot count on toughness. Legions of Darkness introduces a terrifying array of fifty-one new heroes and units to Warhammer: Diskwars, as well as new command cards and other resources designed to bolster the game's forces of Destruction. The Dark Elves and Skaven each gain a hero and enough units to form a regiment, but the expansion's most fearsome threat comes in the form of its new Vampire Counts heroes and units, as well as the Fear and Reanimate X keywords they bear.
