Unit Description

Once of the household of Eltharion’s late father, the Faithbearers’ guilt over their master’s death drives them to fight to reclaim their valour.

Historical Description

Moranion, Eltharion's father, perished in Grom's destruction of Athel Tamarha, but not all of his household were slain. A few Elves, their courage overcome by the sheer size of the Waaagh!, escaped into the woods, leaving their home to its fate. Though these Elves soon reclaimed their valour, and harried the Goblin army as it advanced on Tor Yvresse, they ever blamed themselves for Moranion's death. Since those days, they have fought at Eltharion's side as the Athel Tamarha Faithbearers, hoping to erase their guilt for the father by offering service to the son.


Martial Prowess

High Elves excel as warriors, having trained in martial disciplines for the equivalent of many men's lifetimes.


Some warriors care not for their own personal safety and so work themselves into a whirlwind of destruction and mindless violence!



This unit provides a leadership bonus to nearby allies. Units within range of both the Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.

Hide (forest)

This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Armoured & Shielded

Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage. Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.


Units with frenzy cause more damage while their leadership is high.
