Fantasy Flight Games has announced three new unit expansions for the Uthuk Y’llan that will swarm across Terrinoth and bring their enemies to their knees!
The Uthuk Y’llan consumed everything in their path until their defeat at the end of the First Darkness. Now, they have returned and their demonic warbands bands bring chaos and destruction. The three new expansions will bring the Berserkers, Flesh Rippers, and Spined Threshers onto the battlefield along with their upgrade cards and tokens.
The Uthuk Bersekers run frenzied at their enemies after being whipped up by Blood Coven witches. They have a Steadfast nature, so they are resistant to fear effects.
