Unit Description

Whether struck by the claws of Chaos, Greenskins, or the lesser races in between, the powerful enchantments on the Silverin armour endure.

Historical Description

The Silverin Guard are an example of the High Elf tendency to save their most prized warriors for the defence of the homeland. Historically tasked with the guardianship of the most valuable Waystones of Tor Yvresse, the Silverin suits of armour are said to have been fashioned in the time of Yvresse’s founding; enchanted mails intended for use in an age when Daemons roamed freely across the kingdom’s hills. The steel scales of the Silverin ranks still retain some semblance of the powerful magic, enabling them to be the perennial upholders of Tor Yvresse’s longevity, always ready to defend it to the last against the grimmest of fates whenever needed.


Martial Prowess

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


Expert Charge Defence

When bracing, this unit negates the charge bonus of any attacker.

Hide (forest)

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

Strengths & Weaknesses


Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.

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.

Charge Defence Against All

When standing and bracing against a charge this unit will negate the enemy's charge bonus.

Enchanted Armour

Magical attacks have a reduced effect against the wearer of this enchanted suit of armour.
