The Dark Necromancer

The Ankaur Maro Hero Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game Is Available Now


As death sweeps across the land, the armies of Terrinoth search not only for allies to aid them, but ancient magic to gain the upper hand over their foes. While the Daqan dig through ancient ruins, the forces of Waiqar know where true power lies; in flesh, blood, bone, and death. Of all Waiqar’s servants, few exemplify this like Ankaur Maro, a fearsome necromancer whose ambition and lust for power knows no bounds. Those who oppose the undead legion are subject to the dark magic of the necromancer, and may even end up serving Waiqar themselves.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Ankaur Maro Hero Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game is available now!

The expansion features one infantry and one cavalry figure for Ankaur Maro as well as new terrain and upgrade, objective, and deployment cards to expand your Runewars Miniatures Game collection. For a full preview of the Ankaur Maro Hero Expansion, click here.

Dark Power

Ankaur Maro's hefty ranged attack fluctuates in power, rolling a number of white dice equal to the amount of unstable energy runes on the field.

While unstable energy affects Ankaur Maro’s pure attack, stable energy fuels his necrotic power. Using his special modifier, Ankaur Maro can add full trays to Waiqar infantry units within range 1-5 equal to the number of stable energy runes on the field. While this is a powerful ability that can quickly grow the ranks of the undead, dark magic has a price, and Ankaur Maro takes wounds equal to the number of trays added.

Both Maro's melee and ranged attacks can be modified by two hit symbols, a surge, or a mortal strike, allowing players to adjust Ankaur Maro’s attacks to what is most helpful in the current situation. Low defense targets can be devastated with additional hits, the high defense of stronger targets can be pierced with the mortal strike, and the surge can be used to help Ankaur Maro recover or fuel an upgrade. Whatever you choose, Ankaur Maro is sure to prove himself a worthy servant of Waiqar.

Raise the Dead

With Ankaur Maro as the vanguard of Waiqar’s forces, there is little that can stand in their way. Every fallen ally and foe is just fodder for Ankaur Maro’s dark necrotic powers, as the dead rise and overrun those who would challenge Waiqar for control of Terrinoth.

Raise the dead and purchase the Ankaur Maro Hero Expansion (RWM11) for Runewars Miniatures game from your local retailer today!
