In the Labyrinth He Dwells

Announcing the upcoming release of Asteros & Daedalus Map Pack for Tannhäuser

“They say there’s a monster down there, Cap. Been chained up for years.”

Captain John MacNeal loaded his flash-gun, staring down into the Labyrinth. “There’s a weapon down there, soldier.” He replied, signaling for his squad to move out. “A weapon we’ll need if we hope to win this war...”

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of Asteros, a single figure expansion for Tannhäuser! Hidden deep within the Labyrinth for centuries, the minotaur Asteros yearns to wreck havoc on the world above. He is an unnatural beast that cannot be reasoned with. Do you dare unchain him?

Asteros comes packaged with a detailed pre-painted figure of the legendary minotaur, equipped with rules, tokens, and a unique scenario. With no prior allegiances, Asteros can be used with any faction. Since Asteros is an Epic Hero, he is fielded with a smaller force than normal, replacing a hero and a trooper on account of his legendary power and sheer size.

With the upcoming release of the first Tannhäuser map pack Daedalus, players can encounter Asteros in the very place he was banished. Daedalus features a map of the Labyrinth of Minos which once served as Asteros’ prison. Using Daedalus in combination with the Asteros expansion, players can compete for control over the minotaur in the Labyrinth, or unleash him on the French outpost of Gévaudan.

Armed with magical relics and a savage thirst for violence, Asteros might be the answer your faction has been looking for. Do you think you can control him?
