Idoneth Deepkin

The Idoneth emerge from their undersea kingdoms to raid for mortal souls – a vital resource that is required in vast amounts to keep their race alive. The Deepkin strike their quarry like a sudden tidal wave, leaving nothing in their wake but corpses and glass-eyed, soul-drained victims that will never awaken from their stupor.

Optional Special Rules

Below you will find optional rules for Idoneth Deepkin warbands. These are excellent options for narrative and open play, as your Idoneth drag their victims into the briny depths in your games of Warcry.

Before setup, if a player is using an Idoneth Deepkin warband, then that player can choose to arrive with the phantasmal tide. If they do so, the following rules apply during that battle.

The winner chooses the order in which the players use Tidal Emergence.

Surging Tide: During the first battle round, if a friendly fighter with the Idoneth Deepkin (Idoneth Deepkin) faction runemark makes 2 move actions in the same activation, add 2 to the Move characteristic of that fighter for that second move action.
