“We sons of Grungi may have drunk deep from the bitter waters of misfortune, but we yet survive. Whilst a single Dwarf draws breath, we will fight the evils that assail us, and we will never, ever give up.”
–Hengist Stonebelly, Dwarf Longbeard
Reshape the Old World, and recapture the glory of a bygone era! Glory of Days Past, the fourth Battle Pack in the Eternal War cycle for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game, is now available at your local retailer and online through our webstore!
Deep in the Worlds Edge Mountains, the Dwarfs prepare for battle. Their underground strongholds once ran the length of the Old World, but the cataclysmic earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that devastated their empire also erased their greatest glories and left them beset on all sides by armies of Orcs, Goblins, Skaven, and Daemons. Still, the Dwarfs are a proud and hearty race, and they are master fighters within tunnels in which they live.
Glory of Days Past introduces a new legend to lead the armies of these doughty and venerable soldiers. It also features a new support to boost the Dwarfs’ early Kingdom-building, a new quest that reinforces their position as the Old World’s pre-eminent miners and engineers, and a new Engineer unit that comes ready to launch Ambushes on unsuspecting foes.
Fans of the game’s other races will find that Glory of Days Past offers them plenty of reasons to cheer, as well. Elite Greenskin Warriors and Cavalry surge forward in an endless tide of violence. Men of the Empire ready to meet them with both Spells and steel, though the forces of Chaos seek to corrupt every army’s mightiest heroes. High Elf Mages seek to protect themselves and their armies by harnessing the Eight Winds, even as their dark kin, the Dark Elves, draw strength from their hatred and malice.
New Glory from Old Riches
“Thorek is the keeper of Karak Azul’s Anvil of Doom. Almost alone among contemporary Runelords, Thorek has an understanding of their deeper mysteries. Whilst he has a complete respect for the power of the anvil, he does not fear it.”
If the Dwarfs hope to restore their empire to glory, they must first rally around a leader worthy of their support. Could that leader be the new legend from Glory of Days Past, Thorek Ironbrow (Glory of Days Past, 61)?
In his preview of Oaths of Vengeance, guest writer Torsten Krämer examined the new “greed” theme that the Eternal War cycle offers Dwarf players. With cards like the Veteran Thunderers (Days of Blood, 5) and Karak Hirn Warrior (Oaths of Vengeance, 25), the Dwarfs gain the means to Raid the battlefield for resources and then take new inspiration from their plundered riches. These riches then fuel the Dwarf greed theme in many different ways over the course of the Eternal War cycle. As an example, the Karak Hirn Warrior can attack or defend from any zone whenever his controller keeps at least three resources in his pool.
Now that Glory of Days Past is available at retailers, the Dwarfs gain yet another way to forge their futures from hordes of gold. Whenever he attacks, Thorek Ironbrow can put one Dwarf support card into play with a cost of X or less, where X is the number of resources in his controller’s pool.
The Dwarfs, with their tremendous runecrafting and engineering, have developed a wide range of powerful supports that can do everything from enhancing their power and increasing their Toughness to granting units protection from their opponents’ abilities and increasing the cost of enemy units. Being able to bring these supports into play with Thorek Ironbrow’s ability means, then, that you can gain the benefits of their power and abilities and save the resources in your pool to play valuable tactics on your opponent’s turn, such as the Master Rune of Valaya (Core Set, 25), Empty the Hold (The Deathmaster’s Dance, 62), or Demolition (Core Set, 23).
Of course, if Thorek Ironbrow leads the Dwarfs into the thick of battle, you may want to support him with the neutral support, Descendant of Gods (Fragments of Power, 36). Not only does it offer the legend the ability to defend any of your zones, it also allows him to absorb more damage so that he can heal more damage with Strength of Emperors (Glory of Days Past, 80) and draw more cards.
