Unit Description

Driven by savage instinct and bestial strength, Chrace’s War Lions are rightly feared and respected by all High Elves of Ulthuan.

Historical Description

Of all the beasts that prowl the mysterious forests of the Elven realm of Chrace, the white War Lions are perhaps the best renowned. They are deadly, muscular-framed hunting cats, almost as tall at the shoulders as an Elven steed but far stronger, able to break bones with each sweep of their claws and shatter even helmeted heads with a single chomp of their fanged maws. When preparing for war, it has been known for High Elf Mages to bind War Lions to their will, though such a gesture is not without risk. When armoured for battle, War Lions maintain their lethal predatory instinct, constantly ready to pounce should danger present itself in the form of an enemy. It is clearly with the greatest measure of pride that the White Lions of Chrace, personal guard of the Phoenix King since the time of Caledor the First, took their name.


Can Cause Fear

This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.

Hide (forest)

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


This unit ignores speed and combat penalties caused by terrain and can move through trees.

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.


The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.

Lion Pelt

The thick pelt of the White Lions provides protection against regular and magical missile attacks.
