Three Uthuk Y’llan Expansions Are Now Available for Runewars Miniatures Game

Order your own copy of these expansions at your local retailer or online through our website today!

On the baked red steppes of the Ru Darklands, blood comes easily: drawn near the skin by oppressive heat, spilled by jagged rock and bone, drunk eagerly by the dry earth. The people of this land are a people of blood and bone. No steel armor or battle-hardened shields for the Uthuk Y’llan—their fury and ferocity are all the protection they need. And today, you can call these fearsome warriors to fight for you.

Three new unit expansions are now available for Runewars Miniatures Game: you can pick up your own copies of the Flesh Rippers Unit Expansion, the Berserkers Unit Expansion, and the Spined Threshers Unit Expansion at your local retailer or online through our website today!

Mirroring the units found within the Uthuk Y’llan Army Expansion, these three unit expansions give you an easy way to swell the ranks of your Uthuk Y’llan horde with some of their most integral and common units. Whether you’re launching a lightning-fast attack with the Flesh Rippers, tearing into your foes with the Berserkers, or breaking the enemy lines with Spined Threshers, these Uthuk Y’llan units are the perfect addition to your armies. And of course, each of these unit expansions also includes an assortment of upgrade cards, giving you plenty of ways to customize your forces as they charge into battle.

The Ravening Locust Horde

Each of the three Uthuk Y’llan units within this wave brings a unique approach to slaying their foes—and each one has a unique position that they can fill within your army.

The Flesh Rippers are the perfect cavalry complement to an Uthuk Y’llan army. These Ynfernael demons are commonplace among the Uthuk, since summoning the creatures is a relatively simple rite, requiring only the spilled lifeblood of a single thinking creature or a pack of wild beasts. As a conflict draws near, these demons’ great speed, keen senses, and feral guile are invaluable for hunting down the enemy or harrying a baggage train.

In the game, the Flesh Rippers’ taste for blood lets them spend any number of surges to inflict an equal amount of damage during a melee attack—tearing into your enemies with abandon. You may even spur your Flesh Rippers into a

Feeding Frenzy,

 making this unit more and more lethal as it devours the enemy. The Flesh Rippers Unit Expansion offers four unpainted, easily assembled Flesh Ripper miniatures, enough to fill two cavalry movement trays, along with a command tool, a unit card, and five upgrade cards to make them a feared force among your Uthuk.

If the Flesh Rippers form the cavalry contingent of an Uthuk Y’llan army, Berserkers are the most common form of infantry. These tribesmen of the wastes take up whatever weapons they can find, and before the battle they are whipped into a wild furor by the witches of the Blood Coven. Though they have no formal training, the hardships of surviving to adulthood in the wastelands have made the Uthuk as hard and strong as bone.

Berserkers are no stranger to combat, remaining steadfast in the face of even the most terrifying circumstances. After all, to those who call upon the Ynfernael, few things on the mortal plane can give them pause. The Berserkers also fight with no regard for their own loss of life, freely suffering wounds and losing members of their own unit if they can increase the damage dealt to their opponents. The Berserkers Unit Expansion contains eight unpainted, easily assembled Berserker miniatures, along with a command tool, two infantry trays, a unit card, and five upgrade cards to solidify the infantry base of your army.

The Spined Threshers are among the most terrible demons called forth by the Uthuk Y’llan—in fact, they are no single demon, but many lesser demons, called forth and bound together into an unholy amalgamation. The chaos of dark energies at work is such that signs of the joined demons remain in their new form. Slavering maws and dripping fangs protrude from limb and carapace, so that each element of the demon’s form may seek its own meals.

The appearance of the Spined Threshers on the battlefield is understandably terrifying, and panic is the only reasonable response for an enemy force. Not only do the Spined Threshers inflict fresh panic with every activation, they excel at attacking those already panicked by their presence, rerolling an attack die whenever they close in to crush one of these frightened foes. When you combine this fact with

Devouring Maws

—an upgrade that allows your Spined Threshers to recover a wound whenever they engage in melee combat—it’s plain to see that your Spined Threshers won’t be leaving the battlefield anytime soon.

Within the Spined Threshers Unit Expansion, you’ll find two Spined Thresher miniatures, including a new and unique sculpt that’s distinct from the Spined Thresher included in the Uthuk Y’llan Army Expansion. With two plastic siege movement trays, two command tools, two unit cards, and eight upgrade cards also included in this expansion, you’ll be able to crush any army that dares to stand before you.

Blood on the Earth

The power of the Uthuk Y’llan in Terrinoth is growing, and whether you stand against the Daqan Lords, the Latari Elves, or the legions of Waiqar the Undying, your hordes will be ready for the challenge.

Pick up your copies of the Flesh Rippers Unit Expansion (RWM26), the Berserkers Unit Expansion (RWM28), and the Spined Threshers Unit Expansion (RWM30) at your local retailer or online through our webstore today!
