- Runewars Miniatures Game: Fantasy Flight Games has given us a look at the cavalry troops for the Waiqar army with an update on the Death Knights Unit Expansion box. This unit wielding one blue and two red attack dice when factoring their Impact keyword can dish out a respectable amount of damage. Their presence is something Waiqar commanders will take comfort in when facing the armored cavalry of those pesky Daqan military. This update also gives us a look at the Shield of Margath and the Obcasium’s Gauntlet, two items that will bolster your units and force your opponent to rethink engaging your Death Knights. Look for this expansion at your favorite e-store or FLGS in quarter 3, 2017.
