A Warhammer: Invasion Card of the Week

#WarhammerInvasion

Bright Wizard, masters of smoke and flame, are held above all other practitioners of Magic in battle. Theirs is one of the most spectacular and destructive Colleges of Magic. A Bright Wizard can wield flame like a sword, hurl fireballs, and raise searing walls of fire to burn his enemies. Such powers are incredibly destructive, and few ordinary folk would seek the assistance of a Bright Wizard, for wherever their powers are employed, ruin and devastation is sure to follow.

Welcome to another Warhammer: Invasion card of the week spotlight! March of the Damned, the exciting deluxe expansion that had a limited debut at GenCon 2010, is on store shelves. Meanwhile, the release of Redemption of a Mage, the fourth Battle Pack in The Enemy Cycle, draws ever nearer. Let’s take a look at another card making its way to tabletops soon.

From a thematic standpoint, Bright Wizards are a particularly dangerous group of magic users. Their explosive attacks are almost as likely to hurt themselves and their allies as they are to damage their enemies (the self-destructive Thyrus Gorman being a great example).

Enter Friedrich Hemmler, another Bright Wizard hero whose destructive attacks inflict damage on every unit involved in the battle. With a whopping five power icons, Friedrich is among the most powerful Empire units ever, making him a powerhouse in any zone. And since he deals one damage to all attacking and defending units, he’s the bane of low-cost attackers like Crooked Teef Goblins and Spider Riders.

Join us next time for another Warhammer: Invasion card of the week spotlight!
