Model Tactics
Chainmail Set 2: Drow Warrior
By Bruce R. Cordell and Rob Heinsoo

Model: Drow Warrior

Faction: Kilsek

Why It Rocks: First off, it's a drow! Not enough? Consider the poisoned arrows the Drow Warrior can send winging through the darkness to strike his enemies. With its Darkvision 24" ability, nothing but high walls and other barriers protects the foe's models from a hail of death. Even strong models rightly fear the Drow Warrior for this single ability to render even the highest health meaningless.

Tricks & Tactics: The Drow Warrior's poison arrows aren't his only trick. He can cast darkness once per game. Since it's magical darkness, the Drow Warrior cannot see through it the way it sees through gloom. That means you don't want to cast the darkness on enemies you're planning to shoot with poison arrows. Save the darkness for slowing down enemy troops, especially in scenarios like Blood Harvest.

Enemies Who Hate to See It: Low-armor models like Orc Berserkers don't want to be on the receiving end of the Drow Warrior's poison arrows.

Cross-Faction Warband That Might Want to Use It: Kilsek is a new faction without commanders of its own, so every evil warband will want to use the Drow Warrior -- a Drow Warrior can't come to the table without being cross-faction.
