Fantasy Flight has given us a preview of the Latari forest guardians: Aymhelin Scions. Let’s see what these scions of nature’s fury are bringing!
The Aymhelin Scions, the sentient trees that were roused from their slumber by the arrival of the elves, march alongside the Latari to defend their homes and unleash nature’s fury on their enemies. The Aymhelin Scion Unit Expansion includes two unpainted Scion figurines and two siege movement trays to house them. With the low cost of 14 for one unit, the Aymhelin Scions are the easiest siege units to field in all of Terrinoth.
The Aymhelin Scions’ thick bark is strong enough to withstand weapons of steel, stones, and bone. The many limbs and roots of the Aymhelin Scions offer them the unique ability to catch any enemy who gets too close, cutting off their hope of escape. When the Scions collide with an enemy or an enemy collides with them, that enemy receives one immobilize token. Their strength is tied to the number of stable energy runes in play plus one. When put on the offensive, these devastating Deepwood defenders roll one red and one blue die when participating in a ranged attack, and one red and two blue dice in a melee.
This expansion includes a collection of tokens and eight available upgrade cards to strengthen your Latari army. Vicious Roots upgrade allows the Scions to immobilize an enemy unit with range 1-3 and strip said unit of any boons. Cursed Signets upgrade will allow Scions to suffer wounds instead of banes. This can be used when there are a high number of stable energy runes on the field to strengthen the defense of the Scion to ensure their is little risk.
Aymhelin Scion Unit Expansion: $34.95
When the children of Latariana sound the horn for battle, the very forest answers their call. Roots erupt from the earth in a peal of thunder while limbs crack and sway as if in a gale. Moss, leaves, and flowers shift and fall and bloom again with the movements of living trees. What once appeared an old knot suddenly glows with living green light as the will of the forest awakens
