Greataxes and Pyromancers Tactics

New recruits can be a welcome addition to a war-weary army, but not all soldiers are blunt instruments to be thrown at the enemy. The finer troops take some finesse to get the most out of their skills. A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game designer Michael Shinall takes a look at two recent releases for the Starks and Lannisters and shares some tips on how to use them most effectively.



Umber Greataxes combine defense and fearsome weaponry to field a unit with superior flexibility. Greataxes will chase down heavier foes, stand firm against determined assaults, and deliver a devastating assault with their signature weapons. While not specialized in any particular combat doctrine, an experienced commander can deploy them as-needed, to shore up exposed weaknesses in their own defenses or exploit an enemy’s poor judgment. 

The House Umber Greataxe Unit Box gives Stark Commanders a versatile tool in their arsenal, as these steadfast warriors excel at destroying both lightly armored foes with their Mighty Cleave Attack, as well as piercing the heaviest of armored enemies with their Executioner’s Fury Attack. Regardless of the threat, the House Umber Greataxes can counter it! 


• Slow, but few foes can stand toe-to-toe once engaged with Greataxes.

• Able to ignore even the heaviest enemy Defense with their Executioner’s Fury attack.

• Carve through lightly armored foes with Mighty Cleave. 

• Greataxes excel at being an extreme threat to the enemy- use them for tactical area control on the battlefield!
