Unit Description

Swift and energetic, the Skyhawks are never weary of battle, always standing ready to fight to the death if necessary.

Historical Description

The Skyhawks are Mistwalkers of Yvresse, tied by tradition to the heirs of Argalen, son of Moranion. When Anaran and Anarelle resolved to defend the Blighted Isle, the Skyhawks were battling creatures of the Annulii on the border between Yvresse and Eataine. Abandoning the fight to the Eataine militias, they marched northwards at incredible speed, reaching the Blighted Isle some hours before Malekith's vanguard. Though weary from their journey, the Skyhawks stood ready to fight beside Argalen's heirs – to the death, if necessary.

Guerilla Deployment

Fire Whilst Moving

Strengths & Weaknesses


Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that affects a large area.

Penetrating Projectiles

Projectiles fired by this unit have unusually high penetration for its class and may pass through scores of lesser creatures!


This unit can move hidden in any terrain.

Weak Against Armour

This unit's attack can hardly punch through armour and is thus wasted on heavily armoured enemies.
