Special Traits

  • Long Draw. The hobgoblin archer deals one additional die of damage with its longbow (included in the attack).
  • Precise Aim. If the hobgoblin archer doesn’t move during its turn, it adds 1d4 to its attack roll with its longbow.


  • Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 200/700 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) piercing damage.


The enormous war bows of hobgoblin archers give them range beyond those of most other races, allowing them to inflict casualties and harry opponents before they are able to retaliate.

Formations of pikemen are nearly unassailable on the battlefield, out-ranging spearmen and immune to all but the heaviest armored cavalry.
