“In the great square of the inner city, a sorcerer was being tortured, while a great mob looked on and jeered. Conan, attacked at his house by the monster, wounded it mortally and pursued it into the square, where it rushed to its master, the Kordafan, and fell dead. The frenzied mob tore the Kordafan to pieces…”
– Robert E. Howard, Appendices volume 2
The Overlord gains more of both swords and sorcery with the Kushite Witch Hunters. Its four distinctive miniatures, each of which comes with its corresponding unit tile, allow you to push the heroes to their limits with powerful spells and precision strikes.
As a powerful spell caster, the sorcerous Shubba can loose your vengeance upon the heroes with any spells you give him, and his concentration ability ensures that he’ll never find his spell casting hindered by the heroes’ interference.
Shubba’s allies, Shafiah and Ghayoor, are skilled warriors whose attacks of two orange dice are deadlier than the heroes might expect. This is because they both have the precision strike ability which effectively allows their attacks to ignore the first point of a hero’s armor. Meanwhile, their loyalty to the sorcerer is unquestionable, as both are willing to sacrifice themselves in his defense, if such a sacrifice should ever prove necessary.
The deadliest of the expansion’s three melee warriors, Afari pairs his solid defense and brutal attack with the ability to counterattack. Whenever he faces one of the heroes’ melee attacks, Afari can immediately retaliate by attacking with a single red die. While this attack isn’t as powerful as a swing from his wicked blade, it still benefits from Afari’s precision strike ability, and he can perform this counterattack multiple times in a turn—if the heroes are foolish enough to test themselves against his skills!
