The Scions of Mathlann (Spearmen) is a High Elves unit in Total War: Warhammer II's downloadable content, The Queen and the Crone. Defenders of Cothique and chosen by the Lord of the Deeps himself.
Long ago, in a time of desperate need, the Phoenix King Morvael introduced a levy system so that all Elves could be called upon to fight for the defence of their homeland. These levies were organised into companies based within their cities, towns and villages. Morvael accurately predicted the need for a well-organised but flexible army to defend Ulthuan in the troubled times ahead. This system has stood the test of time and remains the cornerstone of most Elven armies to this day. Every Elf, though he may be a craftsman, tradesman or artist in peacetime, must become a resolute fighter in times of war.
- ↑ Anti-Large: Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.
- ↑ Charge Defence Against All: When standing and bracing against a charge this unit will negate the enemy's charge bonus.
- ↑ Magical Aura: This unit is surrounded by one or more magical auras that either support nearby friends or harm its foes.
- ↑ Shielded: Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.

Their aura provides +12% damage resistance in a radius so long as Winds of Magic are above 50% (15 Winds). They also have expert charge defence over the charge defence against large of normal Spearmen.
