Another huge unit from Torn Armor, this new behemoth assault unit promises to command a heavy presence on the field. Torn World cleaves to familiar canon for gnomes, as they describe: “The gnomes of Torn are a very rare race; very few of them are seen about the world. Those that do exist are fixated with developing their life’s dream: an invention to beat all inventions. Something that will indelibly place them into the annals of time. Every gnome chases a different dream, a different device, many spend decades tinkering with pieces, parts and gadgets all related to that masterwork creation. (Read More)
