About

Unit Description

Favoured by Caledor, these raiders bring oblivion to Ulthuan's enemies, by spear-tipped charge.

Historical Description

To this day, Ellyrian Reavers form a deadly part of Ulthuan's armies. They rove the wild lands of Ellyrion, slaying the monstrous beasts that leave the borders of the Annulii and seek to rampage through the Inner Kingdoms. Many a cockatrice or chimera has been laid low by the well-placed arrows or spear thrusts of the noble youths, and many more Dark Elves have had their cruel raids cut short. Indeed, such pride do the Ellyrian Reavers take in their skills that many of the young nobles keep a tally of slain foes. When the sun sets and set fighting ceases, he whose spear has felled the greatest numbers of enemies is granted the honour of carrying the regiment's standard into the next battle. However, he who slays the mightiest opponent receives Kurnous' favour; when next he rides to war he will do so as one of Kurnous' Harbingers, blessed with peerless aim by the wild God of the Hunt.
