About

Unit Description

Balefiends revel in the instability they create between worlds, urging the Dark Gods to favour the Fimir once again.

Historical Description

A millennia ago, amphibious humanoids known as the Fimir were favoured by the Chaos Gods. Then, as the Gods turned their attentions to the more vibrant and amusing race of man, the Fimir were abandoned. Having since existed in reclusion, they now have a common cause with the Norscan tribes, doing the bidding of the Ruinous Powers as way of regaining their favour. Their mysterious Balefiends wield a powerful magic that appears crude and ritualistic to outsiders, but is incredibly potent. They spend prolonged periods away from the swamps, harvesting power from daemons to destabilise the barrier between the mortal world and the Realm of Chaos.

Abilities

From the Mist

Dark figures move and twist within the magical miasma woven by the Fimir Balefiends as additional protection against the foe.

Arcane Conduit

A strong mind is needed to channel the Winds of Magic. Those that have such a gift become arcane conduits - funnelling the magical tempests to their cause.

Evasion

Those with such skills can evade enemy attacks with ease and break from combat, should they feel that it is tactically important to do so.

Attributes

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.

Encourage

This unit provides a leadership bonus to nearby allies. Units within range of both the Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.

Hide (forest)

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

Strengths & Weaknesses

Armoured

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

Spellcaster

This unit can cast spells.
