Lord Hawthorne Hero Expansion $24.95

As a young man, Lord Hawthorne’s home of Seragart was beset by a horde of barbarians led by a mysterious warlord wielding foul sorcery. As a descendent of Sir Rodric the Strong, Hawthorne was not one to sit idly by. Though badly outnumbered, Hawthorne charged out of the gates with the city’s remaining troops, taking the barbarians by surprise, in the process uncovering the malicious power behind the attacks: the renegade sorcerer Ankaur Maro. Though the defenders of the city were eventually able to break the siege, Maro was able to escape.

Hawthorne was knighted for his bravery in the defense of Seragart, and vowed to never again let a foe escape his blade. Now, rumors swirl that Ankaur Maro has made his return as a servant of Waiqar, and Lord Hawthorne rides forward, determined to defeat his old foe once and for all.

The Lord Hawthorne Hero Expansion includes two different figures for Lord Hawthorne to add to your Daqan army, a cavalry version and an infantry version, as well as six new upgrade cards, four of which will improve any army and two that are exclusive to Lord Hawthorne.

This drive and disregard for boundares in pursuit of power became his undoing,  Ankaur Maro was expelled from Greyhaven and disgraced. Not one to be deterred, Maro soon found himself in the inner circle of dark sorcerers, where he learned the secrets of flesh and blood and bone and death. Maro has found a new home in the service of Waiqar the Undying, his powerful dark magic a beacon of strength for the undying legion.

The Ankaur Maro Hero Expansion comes with two Ankaur Maro figures for the Waiqar in the form of cavalry and infantry versions, as well as six upgrade cards, four for use with any army and two exclusively for Ankaur Maro.

The Carrion Lancers…they call to me…

  • ZeeLobby

    This just looks cooler and cooler to me

    • zeno666

      Yepp, if FFG gets behind the competitive style like they have with X-Wing they might have another winner here.

      Oddly enough I feel a bit sad that its not pre-painted.
      Its easier, IMHO of course, to get into a game like this if I only have to do some touch up painting instead of whole armies.
      And also playing against one unpainted army after another just gets boring.
      I’ve seen enough unpainted/primed Space Marines and Cygnar trenchers.

  • dave long island

    Oh yeah, no one does expansions like FFG.

  • Still no release date for the Core Set though?

  • Munn

    The Carrion lancers are PERFECT necropolis knights

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      Well, Necropolis Knights were pretty perfect already.
