Playing With Fire

A Warhammer: Invasion Card of the Week

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!
