Fantasy Flight Games shows off a preview of the Daqan Lord’s brave hero Lord Hawthorne!
Lord Hawthrone has fought against the enemies of the Daqan for years and has proved himself to be a worthy hero to lead your forces! Let’s take a look at what he’s bringing to the tabletop.
Lord Hawthorne comes in two different poses, on foot or mounted. Which ever version you opt for, he’s going to be packing a punch!
His surge ability let’s him get inspiration tokens which will help ward off those pesky banes he might end up with. He also passes that out to friendly units within 1-3. Not too shabby.
He’s got a pretty versatile command dial as well. He’s quick and deadly as is but when you combine him with some of his upgrade cards he really starts to shine.
Sweeping Strikes is super handy for damaging multiple units in one swipe. Pretty great for a larger base hero with some pretty damaging attacks.
Lord Hawthrone is already pretty tough and this just adds that little bit extra to his defense.
Anyone looking for a nice counter-punch option? This is also a general card so you could put this on other units, too.
Lord Hawthorne’s Dawnblade is sure to be one item he never leaves home without. The damage potential here is pushing the upper limits of what we’ve seen units be able to do. Evil beware – the Dawnblade brings the pain!
“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.
Lead the Daqan forces to glorious victory with the Lord Hawthorne Hero Expansion!”
