Dark Elves Arrive from the City of Winter

Announcing the fifth Battle Pack in The Capital Cycle for Warhammer: Invasion

“Take their gold, burn their homes, kill their families and enslave their souls. Show them no mercy.”     –Malekith, Witch King of Naggaroth

Now is a time for hatred without end as the Dark Elves hatch malicious new schemes from behind the vast walls of Naggarond, the Tower of Cold. Cold-hearted and cruel, the warriors of Naggaroth thrive on the fear and loathing they sow throughout their enemies. No one is safe from their attentions…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of City of Winter, the fifth Battle Pack in The Capital Cycle for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game! With three copies each of 20 unique cards (half of which are devoted to the Dark Elves and their unending hatred), City of Winter is an invaluable Battle Pack for players looking to wreak vengeance upon their foes.

The Siege Lord Rises

The design team for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game offers additional insight into City of Winter:

The Dark Elves love to disrupt their opponents’ plans. They discard cards, steal resources, drop unit hit points, and even take control of their opponents’ cards. You never know quite what to expect next when facing these fearsome raiders.

In City of Winter the Dark Elves get a new hero, Egathrond (City of Winter, 88). While other Dark Elf strategies also get a boost in this pack, Egathrond gives the Dark Elves the ability to deal a killing blow to your opponent and finish the game. While his stats are not terribly impressive, his ability to smash through pesky new Fortifications, such as Wall of Maggots (The Inevitable City, 12), and destroy developments can be devastating. The latter ability, in particular, can force an opponent to keep developing zones, knowing that even the declaration of an attack could lead to a burned zone.

The battle rages on all sides

As the Dark Elves amass their power behind the towering walls of Naggarond, the other factions will have to consider how to make best use of the new warriors, tactics, and fortifications available to reinforce their sides.

Look for the Dark Elves to rally for battle behind Egathrond when City of Winter arrives in the Fourth Quarter of 2011.
