Thorns of the Briar Queen – $6.99


The Thorns of the Briar Queen are a large warband of 7 fighters. Their leader – the Briar Queen – is able to make use of all new spell cards, while controlling a horde of geists and spirits who are eternally bound to her will.

  • The Thorns of the Briar Queen inspire when they are adjacent to an enemy fighter at the start of your activation. Get in close to get stronger!
  • All units from this warband are able to pass through blocked and occupied hexes!
  • Varclav has the ability to push all friendly Chainrasps 2 hexes – perfect for overwhelming your opponent or supreme map control!


  • While fighter numbers are on your side, the Chainrasps have limited wounds and cannot take much damage before being taken out. Make sure your opponent isn’t scoring too much Glory!
  • Cards that move your fighters around the battlefield give you an advantage – use Hidden Paths to get the Briar Queen close to enemy fighters and inspire!
  • The various Key upgrades synergise well with this warband. Equip them, then push all Chainrasps onto objective markers to score loads of Glory!

Happy battling!
