So a thank you to TGN for this; But in summary
We will see 6 new casters so one each then! Surprises as I really did think Retribution would see someone go epic! But suppose depends on story arcs!
Battle engines – How could I have missed these…………..
Theme lists for each new caster, which means that older casters will probably only ever see updates in NQ!! But hopefully we wont see the crazy multiple themes that Retribution initially got!
So the casters released at the same time!
Cygnar Caster Constance Blaize, Knight of the Prophet; Constance Blaize is a resolute champion of Morrow who leads her Precursor Knights into battle against the unholy terrors that threaten all of mankind. Her greatest foes are the sprawling nightmare empire of Cryx and the vile servants of the dark god Thamar. Empowered by her faith, Blaize fights for her god and her nation with fervor inspired by the holy ascendants she reveres.
I am going to say we will see maybe another unit of Precursors appear in Wrath couldn’t possibly guess but can see it possibly having a prays special ability like Kriel warriors???
PoM Caster Thyra, Flame of Sorrow; A fanatic assassin able to move between the bounds of life and death, Thyra, Flame of Sorrow is the peerless commander of the Daughters of the Flame. Her twin swords, Grief and Lament, weave a path of razor-edged destruction through the enemy ranks as she leads her sisters into battle. Thyra has become a living weapon of the Menite cause, her body and soul devoted to avenging the injustices carried out by those who oppose the Creator.
I look, I read and all I can see is a female (human) Garryth!! Not a bad thing but not entirely sold!
Khador Caster Kommander Harkevich, the Iron Wolf; Khador’s Iron Wolf has earned a reputation as a peerless master of heavy armor on the battlefield, a war hero beloved by his men and respected even by the enemies of the Motherland. He is famous for his ability to move large numbers of warjacks at an unprecedented pace to arrive where the enemy least expects him. Where Harkevich and his iron army stride, the enemy finds itself hounded, outmaneuvered, cornered, and eventually obliterated by overwhelming firepower.
So do we have ourselves a jack caster that makes Khador gunline army build possible??
Cryx Caster Lord Exhumator Scaverous; A specialist in the acquisition of lore from the dead, Lord Exhumator Scaverous is one of the most potent and intelligent servants of the Nightmare Empire. Souls are both ammunition and fuel for Scaverous. Those he slays and casts aside are fortunate compared to any possessed of special lore, whose skulls and souls he preserves for horrific necromantic interrogation.
I so want to get my hands on him!!!!!!!
RoS Caster Lord Arcanist Ossyan; The fundamental laws of reality twist and shatter beneath the will of Ossyan, Lord Arcanist of House Vyre. Time bends with but a gesture from him, and he can alter his perception to see the convergence of fate. Armed with perfect foresight he is a deadly combatant and battlefield general. Ossyan’s myrmidons and soldiers move with the assurance of destiny as he unleashes House Vyre’s sophisticated armaments upon the enemies of the Retribution.
A time lord to challenge eHaley? Also sounds like he is going to be difficult to hit something like force shield but more possibly?
Merc Alexia, Mistress of the Witchfire; Astride her horrifying skeletal steed, the infamous Alexia Ciannor reaps the souls of her enemies with the hell-forged blade Witchfire. The dark sorceress uses the souls she harvests to raise armies of terrifying thrall warriors from the grave and rides alongside them as she lays about her with her sword, leaving nothing but ashes in her wake.
Are we going to see undead cavalry for Mercs? I am looking forward to reading her fluff for how she has awakened the Witchfire more! Although it does not mention she has ‘gone’ Epic so still room for her to become a caster at a later date? possibly?
