Looking to bolster your Warhammer Age of Sigmar army with new abilities? Then this new Regiments of Renown might be just the thing. Either as new special boxed sets or build them yourself with the correct models you’ll need the list of the new rules. Chit Hot will be detailing here for the Regiments of Renown – Elthwin’s Thorns.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar lore is rich and varied and that’s no different for the Regiments of Renown.
The soulpod grove in which Elthwin’s lamentiri was incubated was ransacked by ghouls and touched with maddening energies. Over time, the spirit-song that naturally envelops her fellow Sylvaneth has become torturously faint to Elthwin, and it is only the Arch-Revenant’s strength of will that has staved off insanity.
If your army has an Order general but is not a Sylvaneth army, you can include this regiment of renown. If you do so, no other allied units can be included in your army. You can include this regiment of renown in your army even if its points value exceeds the amount allowed for allied units.
Gossamid Champion: Elthwin has fought alongside her Gossamid Archers innumerable times. Under her command, their arrows unerringly strike the weak points of their targets.
Add 1 to wound rolls for attacks made by the Gossamid Archers unit in this regiment of renown while it is wholly within 12″ of the Arch-Revenant in this regiment of renown.
Flight of the Zephyrspites: In their effort to return to Alarielle’s court, Elthwin’s Thorns are carried by swift and loyal Zephyrspites.
If the Gossamid Archers unit in this regiment of renown is within 3″ of the Arch-Revenant in this regiment of renown when you roll a 2+ to retreat using its Zephyrspites ability, instead of retreating, you can remove both units from the battlefield, then immediately set them up again so that the Gossamid Archers unit is wholly within 3″ of a terrain feature, the Arch-Revenant is wholly within 3″ of the Gossamid Archers unit, and both units are more than 9″ from all enemy units.
