Wyrd: The Basotho Cavalry Add Speed to the Abyssinians

This unit’s speed allows them to help take control of a battle.

The Basotho people joined the ranks of the Abyssinian empire in the early 19th century. Their horses ensure them a special role in the battles they fight along side the Empire. They control the enemy’s operations by charging into the fray and using heavy firepower – this allows slower Abyssinian forces enter the battle.

On the tabletop, Basotho Cavalry have incredible Speed. When combined with their Missile weapons, this allows them to harass enemy units by giving out Pinned Tokens. Controlling the opponent’s mobility can be key to making sure Abyssinian forces aren’t outnumbered in skirmishes around the table.

    I’m looking forward to getting my odd-and-sods from the kickstarter campaign. What I’ve seen of the minis so far look pretty cool.

      Yeah. I ended up backing out at the last moment. The models look awesome, but my group was never into the wyrd aesthetic to begin with.

        love the whole Wyrd thing. Play TtB and Malifaux already 😀

          That’s pretty cool. Personally I’d love to start. Especially with the other side as it’s a scale that I’ve been missing. Have enough small skirmish games. Like that this is more unit centric.
