Murderous Abominations

The Uthuk Y'llan Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion Is Now Available


The Uthuk have risen from the ashes of their long-ago defeat with a new fire boiling in their veins. They thirst for vengeance against the children of Timmoran who pushed them to the edge of extinction, and now they descend on the Land of Steel in hordes as numerous as the ones of old. Fortresses, citadels, and great cities cannot stand against the tide of destruction, and the Swarm of Locusts leaves nothing but blackened skies and blood-stained ground in its wake. As a fourth faction joins the battle for Terrinoth, you can lead them into battle with the Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Gameon sale now!

Thirst for Power

In the centuries since their downfall, the Uthuk’s unnatural bond to the Ynfernael has allowed them to bring the horrors of that realm into being, infesting their flesh and coursing through their veins. Now with their strength regained, the fanatical tribesmen of the Uthuk Y'llan fight alongside towering demonic creatures and flesh-warped monstrosities so tainted that they sear the sanity from those unfortunate enough to stand against them. Their leaders wield hellish power that ruins and pollutes the bodies of their foes, even as it corrupts their very souls.

The Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion comes with four unpainted miniatures of these corrupted tribesmen that you can customize in any dark shade of your imagining. Additionally, this expansion includes an infantry movement tray and eighteen upgrade cards to infuse your demonic military with all the dark powers of the Ynfernael.

At the head of the Uthuk Y’llan’s forces are the Warsprinters, corrupted tribesmen who display their army’s standards and ill-gotten trophies from the unnatural growths that erupt from their backs. Their eerie banners inspire the locust swarm and their Ynfernael demons, spurring them on into battle. While their command tool is revealed, allies of the bloodthirsty Warsprinter gain increased mobility, using both the Warspinter's inspiration and their link to the Ynfernael to dart across the battlefield. By uniting the locust swarm beneath the banners of war, these dark standard bearers will lead your forces to glory.

For generations since the Uthuk Y’llan’s downfall at the end of the First Darkness, witches of the Blood Coven have renewed the horde’s allegiance to the darkness, and now through bloody offerings and horrific rites, they infuse their followers with the tainted gifts of the Ynfernael. A Pychosis Siren can invade the minds of her enemies as a skill action, inflicting panic on all who encounter her. The Witches of the Blood Coven can destroy your enemies before they even have a chance to defend—for how can you fight what only exists in your mind?

When the Uthuk hordes are unleashed, the witches direct the destruction through their most corrupted minions, the Shriekers. These altered beings were once members of the tribes of the Ru Darklands, but their cowardice or defiance of the Blood Witches' orders led them to a horrific fate. Now, these mindless shells relay the witches’ orders in the heat of battle, their enormous lungs allowing their shrieks to be heard across great distances. When the Uthuk take to the battlefield, an Aggressive Shrieker treats all of their march actions as modified by charges—without receiving panic tokens for failing to collide with an enemy during the charge. All fear and cowardice has been burned from these fighters, and now they can properly rain death upon the people of Terrinoth.

The Uthuk's dark pacts with the Ynfernael have twisted and changed their bodies over the years of their exile. This debased devotion has equipped a select few of the tribesmen of the Ru Darklands with a hellish blessing that twists their bodies and offers them inhuman strength. After a melee attack, a Grotesque Slasher can use their upgrade card to increase their odds of stunning or immobilizing enemies. They will even inflict self-harm if it means they will increase their own lethality. By uniting the Uthuk’s greatest fighters, nothing will stand in the way of your conquest.
