The figures used for this unit are Safari Ltd. Good Luck Minis Ants.

Character Bio: Restless and ravenous, Xualtiaca ant colonies are Aquilla's horde. They sting and kill anything in their way, swarming throughout the jungle.

Quote:

SWARMING
After moving and before attacking with Xualtiaca Fire Ants, count the number of engaged Xualtiaca Fire Ants you control. You may move this number of unengaged Xualtiaca Fire Ants you control that you did not move this turn up to 3 spaces each.

SWARM STING 18
Instead of attacking, Xualtiaca Fire Ants may use Swarm Sting 18. Once for each opponent's figure adjacent to at least one Xualtiaca Fire Ant you control, roll the 20-sided die for stinging damage. Add 1 to your die roll for each Xualtiaca Fire Ant you control engaged with that figure. If you roll an 18 or higher, that figure receives one wound. If the wound was inflicted and the figure was not destroyed, roll again for stinging damage for that figure. Swarm Sting does not affect destructible objects.

CLIMB X3
When moving up or down levels of terrain, Xualtiaca Fire Ants may triple their height.

-Rulings and Clarifications-
Q: Can a Xualtiaca Fire Ant that moved via Swarming attack that turn?
A: Yes. Note, however, that any Fire Ants that moved normally are already activated as potential attackers. If four Fire Ants moved normally, only those four may attack. If fewer than four Fire Ants moved normally, the remaining attacks may come from any Fire Ants you control, including ones moved by Swarming.

Re: The Book of Xualtiaca Fire Ants
 
Fire Ants x6 330
Raelin SotM 450
24 hexes drop an ant

A simple army, where you use Raelin to help the Ants get into position and once they are engaged, she can help them stay that way. Good thing you have 23 ants, because you are going to lose them lol.

These guys don't have many different armies to choose from in the 500/24 scene. Its mostly a bunch of ants + 1 hero to do something that helps. Maybe playing them will give me another take on them? 4 squads seems to be their minimum number of squads.

With a power like Swarming, the bigger the game, the better the Xualtiaca Ants will be. Stinging will do the rest once they're engaged.

P.S.

I was surprised to see that both these Xualtiaca-Fire Ants and the Red Ants of Aundstrom are listed as originating from the planet VALHALLA on the List by Planet, but it is *NOT* mentioned in either of their Character Bio's on the Alphabetical List.

It's on the basic side. Moreover, it's known based on their names (both Aunstrom and Xualtiaca are regions in Valhalla; Aunstrom is a desert in the south-central of the continent and Xualtiaca Valley is in/near the Ticalla Jungle).

Thanks @johnny139 and @DanieLoche for providing this valuable information.

WOW! BRAVO! That is an awesomely EXCELLENT map of Valhalla. I'm printing it to hang on my wall. And I'm feeling really stupid (in spite of my many years of higher education and cartographic training) for *NOT* paying closer attention to all of the details on the maps and in the scenarios that were published by Hasbro for HeroScape.

+1 Rep given to each of you.

Your C3V Rules Team has suggested the following Ruling(s) and Clarification(s) for this unit:

Quote:

Q: Can a Xualtiacan Fire Ant that moved via Swarming attack that turn?
A: Yes.
Note, however, that any Fire Ants that moved normally are already activated and must be chosen during the attack phase. If less than four Fire Ants moved normally, the remaining attacks may come from any Fire Ants you control, including ones moved by Swarming.
We request that the person who created this thread add these to the OP, if they're not already there. Thanks very much!
