The Puremane Company (White Lions of Chrace) is a High Elves Regiments of Renown unit introduced in Total War: Warhammer II with The Queen and the Crone DLC. With hearts to match that of Charandis himself, the Puremane Company are fearless.
Hand-picked by Korhil to aid in his treachery, these white lion guards had resisted the influence of Tyrion and Morathi just as their captain had. They did not doubt the reason for their fortitude, ascribing it to the traits of stubbornness and honour that have ever been cornerstones of the Chracian warrior's code. Even so, by the time Korhil marched north from Tor Alin, his companion's resistance was due more to Adranna sheltering their souls from the growing shadow than any innate strength of character. Each of the Puremane Company understood the enormity of the task before them and was prepared to die in its prosecution. Like Korhil, they held themselves partially responsible for what had come to pass, and sought absolution in unmaking Tyrion's madness.
- ▲ Armour-Piercing: 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.
- ▲ Armoured: Armoured: Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
- ▲ Forest Strider: Specialists in forest warfare, this unit gains melee attack and defence advantages when fighting in forests.
- ▲ Lion Cloak: White Lion fur is not merely a fashionable status symbol, it also provides protection against regular and magical missile attacks.
The Puremane Company builds on the strengths of the White Lions. They provide physical resistance to nearby characters, making them defensive guardians that can protect characters in the thick of a fight. They also pack armor sundering which only complements their high armor piercing damage, although it does make it easier for the rest of the High Elves forces to deal damage to an afflicted enemy.
Try to keep them as healthy as possible, because martial prowess will do a lot to keep them fighting.
