The Only Constant is Change

A Warhammer: Invasion Card of the Week


Welcome back to the Warhammer: Invasion card of the week spotlight, in which we preview a card from an upcoming expansion. We’ve seen relatively little from the next Battle Pack scheduled to hit stores, The Silent Forge. When we announced this third Battle Pack in The Enemy Cycle back in May, we revealed the Descendant of Indraugnir, a powerful Dragon ready to inflict massive damage to enemies of the High Elves.

Today, we’ll again turn our attention to the forces of Chaos.

Esli’an is a silver-tongued follower of Tzeentch, and he wields his knowledge like a sword, scheming to bring even the most stoic opponent under the influence of his dark master.

His ability reads like Chaos’ answer to Wilhelm of the Osterknacht. When he attacks (meaning when he is declared as an attacker, but before assigning damage), he is able to corrupt one unit in the defending zone! As with Wilhelm, this is a great way to get pesky defenders out of the way, just in time to strike a major blow to a now-vulnerable zone. If you have a Winged Fury on your front line, or if you’re able to drop a well-timed Spreading Darkness, all the better!

A final note: With our preparations for GenCon in full swing, the Warhammer: Invasion card of the week will be taking some time off. We’ll return in two weeks with more exciting previews, so keep checking back. In the meantime, we’ll see you at GenCon!
