In the world of Iron Kingdoms Unleashed the real power lies in the ability to control the Warbeasts of the wilds and that’s exactly what the Harnessers do. However, unlike in Hordes from Privateer Press there are many things that send a Warbeast into a frenzy…
Warlords & Warlocks
Warlord Morrg is the real enemy of the Unleashed Adventure Kit and he commands two Warbeasts on the tabletop to meet his nefarious ends. However, player characters who are looking to take the path of the Warlock will have to understand what it means to care for these beasts.
It’s not only damage from combat that can send beasts like this into a frenzy and something as simple as missing a meal might end up with them going mad and tearing apart the countryside (or worse a village or two). With that in mind you’ll have to build a real bond with your Warbeast and it becomes a character unto itself (something I love).
As well as tending to Warbeasts the Warlock can also boost their damage and attacking potential in their field with their Empower Weapon ability which makes their mundane weapons suddenly magical and a lot more terrifying.
Both the new Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Rulebook and the Adventure Kit can be checked out over on the Privateer Press website so if this little look at being a Warlock has made you consider picking up the game give it a look.
From what we’ve heard and unboxed this is a great kit worth checking out and if the idea of delving deeper into this appeals to you we have a video where we look at what’s inside…
Will you be taking to the wilds of Immoren?
