Unit Description

These lion-pulled chariots do not pick at the enemy, but charge headlong into the fray brandishing fang, claw and axe.

Historical Description

The ranks of the White Lions, the personal guard of the Phoenix King, are made up of warriors who have not only displayed considerable valour and skill upon the battlefield, but have also completed the traditional rite of a Chracian warrior to hunt and kill a white lion. Sometimes such hunts lead to the discovery of cubs which, with expert care, can be raised to form a close bond with the Chracian hunters that foster them and later serve in Ulthuan’s armies. Those able to form such bonds inevitably end up riding to battle upon white-timbered chariots drawn by a pair of the snarling beasts, whose savage killing power is belied by their appearance of feline grace and elegantly plaited manes. The Lion Chariots of Chrace have a well-deserved reputation as the bane of even the most determined shield wall.


Martial Prowess

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


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.

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.


Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.

Lion Pelt

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