Get the Mythic Americas rulebook FREE with this Mythic Americas Starter Army, perfect for those setting out on a new tabletop journey with the fearsome warriors, deadly magic, and towering monstrosities that vie for dominance in the fabled lands of the Mythic Americas.
The Mythic Americas version of Warlords of Erehwon still keeps at its heart a singular objective in mind – to allow for fast-paced and exciting miniature battles upon a standard-sized table between rival forces known as Warbands. A Warband represents your own band of warriors – courageous humans, blood-thirsty monsters, legendary heroes, and mythological entities from the depths of the darkest myths.
Mythic Americas: Warlords of Erehwon provides a multi-level, scenario-driven approach to your games. This approach offers plenty of opportunities to reward tactical play, but at the same time keeps things manageable in terms of the size of forces and space required. The game still uses ten-sided and Order dice, making for a game with mechanical depth and considerable adaptability. The Order dice test system, at the mechanical core of Mythic Americas, and an extremely balanced rules set offers Warband leaders great tactical freedom, but the game still offers lots of opportunity for fate and chance to have a say in the outcome of your battles. But, every experienced general throughout the ages knows that fate and chance will test even the most ingenious battle plan!
The rulebook contains all the rules you need to get playing, a wealth of scenarios and four full army lists for the Tribal Nations, The Aztecs, The Maya, and The Inca. It also includes background with tactical tips and painting tips for each of the four warbands.
Aztecs Starter Warband
The Aztecs are designed around a core of many, lower quality undead warriors that, when enhanced by magic, can stand toe-to-toe with tougher enemies. In addition to the undead hordes, elite troops in the form of Jaguar warriors and Eagle warriors provide powerful melee and ranged support. The elite units must be used sparingly due to their high cost and light armour.
The Aztec warband has multiple spellcasters led by a higher magic level warlord and units of minor, support spellcasters. Aztec undead units benefit from enhancement spells where a single spell can augment many undead units. These buff spells can be used for numerous temporary statistic increases such as strength and resistance. The buffs combined with their Dread special rule can create undead units that are vicious on the attack or durable roadblocks slowing the opponent’s advance.
Aztec army lists will require synergy between both the lower quality, high model count undead units, and the more elite living units. Aztec magic is critical to enhancing units to take advantage of their full potential.
Aztec Starter warband contains:
1 Tlalocan High Priest Hero unit (INCLUDING 4 Bound-Dead Bodyguards. 5 models)
4 Tlalocan-Bound Dead WARRIOR units (20 models)
