The Undead do not rest easy – Come take a look at Two unit previews for the Waiqar Forces!
Waiqar players, get ready for some reinforcements heading your way. Later this week, the first two big unit expansions is heading to stores. The official release date is May 18, 2017 but you can pre-order these units now. In the mean time, let’s take a quick look at what you can expect in the box…

The massive Carrion Worms that follow the armies of Waiqar the undying are not easily tamed, but those that are prove to be valuable assets for the carrion worm masters on the field of battle. Carrion Worms are swift for their size and inspire fear in the heartiest of Waiqar’s enemies.
The Carrion Lancers Unit Expansion features two Carrion Lancer Plastic Figures, one new and one identical to the core set, to expand your legions of the undead. The expansion also features eight new upgrade cards to improve your armies and crush your enemies underfoot.
The Carrion Lancers are also bringing a couple more options the to the tabletop:
Front Line Carrion Lancer allows you to spend a surge to cause a Mortal Strike to your target. That could be the difference from an attack bouncing off their armor and landing a killing blow!
The Support Carrior Lancer allows your to inflict a blight token on 1 unengaged enemy unit at range 1-5. That can be pretty useful for setting up combos with your other units – or even a successful charge with a Front Line Carrion Lancer…
Reanimates Expansion Pack $24.95
Though each reanimate is but a fraction of the being they were when they followed Waiqar in life, the legion of skeletal warriors strike fear into the hearts of those that would stand against them. An unquenchable spite and loyalty to the dread Waiqar the Undying drive the legion to destroy anything in their path.
Expand your ranks of the undead with the Reanimates Unit Expansion. Featuring eight reanimate plastic figures in four different sculpts, the expansion contains everything you need to add one Reanimates unit to your own army. Overrun your opponents with an undead legion and raise your dead with the Reanimates Unit Expansion.
The Reanimates are your basic troopers in an Waiqar Army. They are the bones of the fallen that have risen-up to slay the living. To represent this they are getting a few more upgrade cards to help them with their mission:
Lingering Dead is a unit upgrade that allows the crafty Reanimate commander a chance to replenish their ranks. We knew the Undead didn’t want to stay dead and this just makes them even tougher to put down permanently.
Trumpets is actually a really powerful upgrade for just about anyone, but doubley-so for the Reanimates. Their dial wasn’t what I would have called “fast” but with the Trumpets, their non-straight maneuvers get a speed boost. That will be plenty useful to catch your opponents off guard with.
