Once again, the shores of Ulthuan are besieged. Led by Malekith, a power-hungry betrayer who seeks to rule the High Elves or destroy them in the attempt, the insidious Dark Elves drive an army of slaves deep into the lands of the Phoenix King. This will be a battle that will shake the Old World to its core; Malekith's prowess is as legendary as his ultimate betrayal, but the Phoenix King and his followers will do everything in their power to oppose the vile and destructive Dark Elves.
In December, we announced Assault on Ulthuan, an upcoming deluxe expansion for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game! The Assault on Ulthuan expansion explores the bitter enmity between the Dark Elves, a cruel race who enslave and sacrifice prisoners, and the High Elves, a proud race who rely on healing an ranged attacks. Featuring two forty-card core decks for these new factions, plus a host of new cards for players of existing factions, Assault on Ulthuan will bring a new level of excitement to your Warhammer: Invasion experience.
For this week’s “card of the week” feature, we’re pleased to reveal two powerful tactics that will no doubt become additions to any Elf player’s deck.
First, the tactic card "For Ulthuan!" allows a High Elf player to strike a devastating blow against an unsuspecting enemy. Before choosing which of your battlefield units will be taking part in either attack, play this card. You will want to build your battlefield units considerably beforehand, since you will have to split your attacking forces... but if played correctly, you can bring the game to an early end!
In response, the Dark Elves possess a tactic that is potentially every bit as devastating as the Orc’s Troll Vomit or the Empire’s Judgement of Verena. "Invoke Khaine’s Wrath" lets you deliver a harsh punishment to any foe, and its presence in your deck will make your opponent think twice about how many units to declare as attackers.
Both cards will make their way onto tabletops this spring, with the release of Assault on Ulthuan. Join us next week for another spotlight on Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game!
Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game is a card game by Eric M. Lang in which 2 players develop their kingdoms and lay waste to their foes. Each side is comprised of either the forces of Order or the forces of Destruction as they seek to extend their empire to include the entire Old World. The Living Card Game™ format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Battle Pack expansions to the core game.
Brilliant game and looking forward to the expansion.
Robro- After this expansion I'm sure you can run them as their own race as I think they include the main board to play them... but if you include other tpyes of armies into them then they must be from the destruction family...
The game keeps looking better and better!
Makes a person wonder when or if a general cancel will enter the game. Both of those cards are "wow" cards.
High Elves are Order and Dark Elves are Destruction factions as per the rule book and all Warhammer fluff, basically an ongoing civil war.
I would like to start playing this, Are the high elves and dark elves there own race, or do they just belong to the order or destruction factions?
I like both those cards and would like to subscribe to their newsletters.
