Some Kings of War news from Mantic Games...

The Empire of Dust has returned!
Stripped of their power and life by the Ophidians and cursed for all time, the Ahmunite empire wages a vengeful war on both the living and dead alike. Fuelled by hatred and compelled by sinister necromancy, the ranks of the Ahmunites march relentlessly across the scorched earth.
Lead by Pharaohs, Cursed High Priests and Revenant Champions, the Empire of Dust marches to war.
What is the Empire of Dust?

Cursed to undeath for their hubris, Empire of Dust armies consist on legions of unwavering skeletons, supported by enslaved Djinn demonsswarms of insects and powerful heroes. They are slow, but highly resilient and able to wear their foes down through attrition.

They have strong magic on their side. Many characters in the list have access to strong Surge spells, allowing them to drive your slower units forwards to the enemy's battle line. Enslaved Guardians, captured powerful desert spirits, can wield two-handed weapons strong enough to cut through armoured cavalry, or large crossbows that fire deadly enchanted bolts. They can also summon their magical powers to create sandstorms that drive charging opponents back.

To back up the numberless legions of skeleton warriors and regiments of Enslaved Guardians, the Ahmunites are capable of fielding scores of skeletal ranged troops, fromArchers to Balefire Catapults. Opposing armies will have to survive a torrent of unrelenting fire to reach your lines. These ranged units are further enhanced by theCursed High Priest's magical abilities and Enslaved Guardians' crossbows.

Ahmunite Pharaohs rule their subjects with an iron fist. These deposed warrior-kings were once vain and indulgent, but now only bitter hatred remains. They take pleasure in challenging enemy generals to personal combat, depriving the living of their heroes and champions. As befits a Pharaoh's court, they surround themselves with the most skilled of undead fighters. Revenants and Revenant Champions wordlessly protect their lord, or bear their coat of arms to war.
