Alastar the White LionHigh Elf aristocrats are precise and calculating, and they bring this nature to the battlefield.
The White Lions have served as the personal guard of the Phoenix King since the time of Caledor the First. White Lion regiments are often despatched to join the armies of Ulthuan during times of particular danger, tasked with protecting High Elf generals and mages, or bolstering the overall strength of the army. White Lions are renowned for their unflinching courage in the face of overwhelming odds and terrible horrors, protecting their charge whatever the foe and regardless of the danger to themselves.

Strengths & Weaknesses
Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
- Melee Expert
Melee Experts might have a very strong Charge Defence. Use them to counter other strong melee units. When facing them, it is best to take them out before they can enter melee.
- Lion Cloak
White Lion fur is not merely a fashionable status symbol, it also provides protection against regular and magical missile attacks.
