In Westeros, it’s not just the men that will put their lives on the line out on the battlefield. Especially for the Free Folk, everyone is expected to do their part, and that’s why the Spearwives units are created. But far from just feeble extras, the Spearwives have trained extensively with their weapons of choice, and can be just as deadly as any other soldier. Their short spears are light enough to even be thrown at the enemy, letting the Spearwives cut them down at range. But the real danger comes when they charge. Their sharp spears, with the momentum of a running start, can pierce even the toughest armor. Adding a seasoned Spearwife Matriarch to the unit further enhances their maneuverability.
The Spearwives unit box for A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game gives Free Folk Commanders a new unit and unit attachment that they can bring to the battlefields of Westeros.
This product is an expansion: A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game core set required to play.
The next unit the Targaryens get is a unit ofDothraki Outriders. While the Screamers were the melee-centric unit for the starter set, the Outriders are its ranged troops. They have taken the art of horsemanship to an entirely new level. Like all cavalry, they get a free Maneuver action when they activate.
However, their Nimble rule makes them even quicker. It allows the Outriders to Shift 3” before making a Ranged Attack (as opposed to the usual 2”), and they can also make another 3” Shift after they attack. So, even though their Shortbows only have Short Range, they can still attack an enemy up to 15” away from where they started their turn, then move hopefully back out of retaliation range afterward.
An interesting thing about this unit is that they have absolutely no Melee attack at all. So, having that ability to shift away is certainly going to come in handy, as Targaryen commanders will need to make sure to not get this unit stuck in Melee.
Hedge knights are independent knights who wander the Seven Kingdoms seeking employment with major lords. They are so-called because it is said they are so poor that they cannot afford to stay at inns, but sleep under hedges by the roadsides.
