Runewars Uthuk Yllan Command

Fantasy Flight Games is teasing the new Infantry Command expansion for the Uthuk Y’llan. Let’s see how these command units will bolster the demonic hordes.

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 elites bring chaos and destruction. The Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit Expansion brings four new figures and 18 new upgrade cards to the table. The expansion includes the Witch, Shrieker, Warsprinter, and Grotesque.

The Uthuk Witches drive the ravenous hordes of the Uthuk Y’llan. With sacrifices and rites, they have renewed allegiances and unleashed furious hordes. Witches can use the upgrade Psychosis Siren to allow the player two powers. They can cause all enemies from Range 1 to the number of unstable runes on the field to suffer a severity -1 morale test. They can also choose an enemy to give a panic token, regardless of whether or not the card is exhausted. They excel in keeping their distance and doing damage.

Uthuk Witches

The Shriekers are the poor souls that are dragged to the witches and have their lungs drawn out. They are kept alive by unholy means and their mouths are frozen open in a rictus scream. Only an obedient husk remains. They are used to direct the hordes and have an upgrade called Aggressive Shrieker that allows an Uthuk army to treat a march as if it also has a charge modifier. They do not suffer panic if they do not collide with the enemy when using this ability.



Warsprinters lead the charge and have had their bones warped and stretched by witches. These bone spikes are decorated with fetishes from defeated enemies and Uthuk banners. The Warsprinter upgrade card allows its allies a skill action to perform a speed -1 march as long as the Warsprinter’s command tool is revealed. The unit can utilize a skill action to perform a march equal to the number of unstable runes on the field.

ShriekerGrotesques are tribesmen that have been blessed by Ynfernael as they join the Uthuk ranks by offering their own bodies as sacrifice. With the Grotesque Slasher upgrade, after melee is engaged, the player controlling the grotesque can roll an extra blue die. If the die shows a strike icon, a stun token is inflicted on the enemy. If a surge is shown, then the defender receives an immobilize token. The drawback is that when using either ability, the Grotesque suffers one wound.
