Under Strong Leadership

A Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game spotlight


Back in March, we announced the upcoming release of the Legends Expansion for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game. This deluxe expansion introduces an exciting card type that works as part of an all-new mechanic: Legends. A Legend card represents one of a faction’s most influential heroes, leaders, and villains; the placement of such of card in your play area affects every zone you control, as it lends its individual strengths to your forces as a whole. Now, the Legends Expansion will be on store shelves in just a few days!

We’ve already seen a handful of Legends, including Archaon, Karl Franz, and Kairos Fateweaver. And we’ve even seen some of the other cards bringing new units and strategies to all six factions, including Armed to da Teef and Oozing Eye. But what about cards that interact with legends?

Inspired by Order

Several units in this expansion gain benefits if you control one of these icons of leadership and power. The Dwarf Thunderer, for example, is a disciplined master of the secrets of gunpowder, and the inspiration he receives from strong leadership takes the form of additional Toughness. Other Order units that benefit from legends include the High Elves’ Ellyrian Knights and the Empire’s Black Guards.

Skilled riders atop some of the finest horses in Ellyrion, the Ellyrian Knights are a deadly weapon in the Pheonix King’s arsenal. But with a legend commanding their movements, these young nobles become deadlier still; their Counterstrike ability helps ensure that attacks against Ulthuan meet a swift response. Finally, the Empire’s Black Guard is an elite group of knights dedicated to the defense of the Emperor. Keeping with their faction’s affinity for zone control, these highly trained riders have the mobility to defend multiple zones when properly directed.

Look for the Legends Expansion for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game on store shelves very soon, and keep checking back for more!
