Watch The Luminark of Hysh come to life in this new Total War: Warhammer trailer.

Total War: Warhammer gives The Creative Assembly a chance to bring to life some of the fantasy tabletop game’s most impressive miniatures. One of the best is highlighted in this week’s unit introduction video. Here’s the lowdown:

“The Luminark of Hysh is a magical war machine created by the Wizards of the College of Light Magic. Housing a rare, sorcerous orb, it’s capable of casting Solheim’s Bolt of Illumination, a devastating light spell. This bolt is focussed through a series of arcane lenses before leaping across the battlefield to tear the enemy asunder.”

The unit will feature in this Friday’s new Total War: Warhammer battle gameplay walkthrough video. Keep your eyes peeled for that.
