I don't think there's anything like that so far...

The only way to do this thematically would either:

A: Teach a creature one of your schools of magic. As a full action the Warlock could "evolve" a Bitterwood Fox into a Ninetails, or "evolve" a Timber Wolf into an Arcanine. Both of these creatures would have a lesser, mana-free, ranged, fire attack.

B: A bow equipment that could target a non-mage creature with the "Opposable Thumbs" trait.

There are loads of ways to do it.

Returning Weapon
This enchantment allows the creature it is on to make a quick melee attack as a full ranged attack with range 1-1 at -1 dice.

Psychic Thrust
This enchantment allows the creature it is on to make a magic mind attack for 2 dice that is unavoidable and stuns on an 8+ with a range of 1-2

Bow Of Light
This enchantment gives target a creature a 3 dice ranged attack with a range of 1-2 that is ethereal.

as three quick examples (would obviously need far tighter wording, just doing for example purposes)

The Hawkeye enchantment gives a creature the Ranged +1 trait.

Is this what you are looking for?

No, that was our mistake on our first game. my friend wanted to give his taigu a ranged attack and attached a hawkeye. Hawkeye actually gives +1 attack die on ranged attacks, not a ranged attack itself. My friend thinks its dumb that he cant give his creatures a ranged attack, maybe soemthing they can add with a later expansion.

Heh, sounds like your friend should do some deckbuilding and use some of those darned Royal Archers, and maybe that new Dwarf sniper from the expansion. cool

A spell that could make a unit's melee attack, become a ranged attack could be OP very easily.

At best, they'd have to make it a level 5 spell at least; cost a lot of manna to cast, and have it be an incantation (not enchantment).

It's seems awful unthematic too. "My Iron Golem attacks your mage 2 zones away with 6 dice"

That's it! Maybe it's a necromancer spell, effects only undead, they rip off their arm and throw it at someone, but permanently lose 1/2 their melee attack rounded up.

Hey, wait! An earth elemental; tears off a piece of itself, and throws a bolder/hail of stones; costs 3 mana and 3 life damage to EE.

Possible with both water/air elementals too.
