Iskra comes from a powerful undead family and her relatives often appear beside her on the battlefield. They form an unholy group that marches through combat depleting enemies’ strength to restore their own. A skilled swordswoman, her dark blades drain life as they wound.
At the height of a battle, Iskra summons the Rechets of Bogdan. These terrifying undead creatures follow Iskra’s every command and alone can devastate the battlefield, as their foes are unable to defend themselves against the Rechets’ attack. They appear near her when summoned. However, in the thick of battle, too many foes surrounding Iskra can disrupt the summoning magic and cause fewer Rechets to appear.

If you roll a 14 or higher, you must place all 3 Rechets of Bogdan on empty spaces within 6 clear sight spaces of Iskra Esenwein. Any Rechets of Bogdan that you cannot place on the battlefield are immediately destroyed and cannot be summoned again. When the Rechets of Bogdan are summoned, you may immediately take a turn with them.

Behind the Game
- Mindshackled Iskra
If I manage to Mindshackle my opponent's Iskra, can I use her to summon my opponent's unsummoned Retchets of Bogdan?
No. Summon the Rechets of Bogdan states that you can attempt to summon the Rechets "....if they are in your army..." since the Rechets are in your opponent's army, you would not be allowed to summon them.
Unless your enemy has created an army that includes many double-spaced figures that can block your sight, you should have no trouble summoning the Rechets to back you up. That said, Iskra has a painfully average defence and fairly low health, so you should try to summon the Rechets as swiftly as possible. Once they've been summoned, Iskra is then best used as a hit-and-run unit against squads, as her life drain should compensate for any wounds she may incur.
