Legend of the Five Rings LCG Preview – Honored General

Welcome to #LionWeek.

The Lion Clan historically have been the Right Hand of the Emperor.  They carry out the military orders of the Emperor.  As such, they tend to have the largest standing army who are ready to attack at a moment’s notice.

As the size of Lion’s army is substantial, they usually attack in waves.  As such, Lion historically are very fast.  On Friday, Fantasy Flight Games previewed Akodo Gunso:

This shows Lion wanting to be honored (via the Pride keyword) and his reaction pushes swarming.

Today we have received a card from our informant within the Imperial Courts (Thanks FFG / Asmodee)

Honored General is a powerhouse in a swarm deck or even attacking alone.  With him becoming honored after he enters play, he becomes a 5 MIL / 3 POL Lion who can solo provinces.  If you are attempting to play swarm, he also boosts your entire Lion army.
