Re: Initiative

Grizzle is correct. Each general, commander and champion can try to retain which can only be done once an attempt. So you cant retain after already successfully retaining and each model can only do it once. You may only do a forced initiative once per game where two units activate at the same time.

Re: Werwulf Wiglere Beckon Invocation

1. The initial price will be 8 plus the number relative to the unit from how I read it, remember its a wulf unit so you'd get a D10 reduction.

2. Yes its a spell.

3. No spell can be done twice in an activation except where a special rule says otherwise.

4. Temper of the battlefield.

Hi Geoff,

The white banners are for normal unit banners and the yellow/gold one are for your host banner. I believe you are limited to one host banner but you can have as many banners in your force as you wish to purchase on top of the required mainstay or two influenced units.

As the title how did the creatures such as the Dyndraig, Dynwocor and the other Brythoniaid come to be?

Are they a natural evolution from the pure monster lines or formed from magic or something else entirely?

I’m going to assume it’s an attack move whilst on the move order you’re referring to as a unit on attack can never be in shield wall. From memory the answer is no but when I can get to my book I’ll double check with a fuller answer.
