Which is especially nice as most new leader options are decently beefy. Danse Macabre remains as Necromancers ace though so having him as a hero is definitely not a bad choice.

Well ive gotten few games in since covid but, im happy for the heroes and larger options in the game. It will probably result in some imbalance here and there but lets face it, warcry is a casual game from the start and not really built to stand up to the competitive treatment. There are basically 3 ways to play in the rulebook and i think they are all quite legit, and playing the campaigns changes a lot of things, the games get larger and higher powered, you get access to monsters/thralls and picking men from your roster is a more important part of the game....
Yeah, the focus is on narrative campaigns and matched play is the secondary mode. I think that is a fantastic way to run the game development and is a big part of why I like Warcry so much. Compare to AoS or 40k where matched is the focus and narrative mode(s) are secondary. (While open is not so much a way to play as a box of various rules people can adapt for their own use.)

Ahh so the Soulblight options are in Legions of Nagash - cool

Just getting into reading through all these and dam they are packed with content. Really good stuff, I am very happy with the grand alliance books. Expanding the options is great, updated mercenary/ally mechanics are great, and I am particularly happy with the amount of fluff. Every grand alliance has a review of what it is and why they want to go to the eightpoints, then each individual faction has a full run-down on what makes them want to go there and how they go about doing it. It makes for a fantastic narrative base when coming up with background for one's own warbands.

Bladeborn boxed game announced it appears to be using a modified Warcry rule set and has rules for 2 of the Underworlds war bands. No mention if these are region restricted like past boxed games.

Might buy that even just for the models.

It seems to be a combination of warcry and underworlds. I imagine that expansions wouldn't be too difficult to do, it's just an underworlds warband with fewer cards.

Khagra's Ravagers are Underworlds, the Untamed Beasts are a WarCry warband.

Unless I missed something about there being more rules for Underworlds warbands in the box?

Pretty sure it's Ravagers vs Godsworn Hunt, both from Underworlds.

The marauders in the box are The Godsworn Hunt, also an Underworlds warband. There are no Untamed Beasts in the box. And there are no Underworlds rules in the box since you need a full deck of cards for each warband to play.

I must be delusional from just waking up then, when I'd first read it I swear I saw Untamed Beasts not Godsworn Hunt.

Cool though! Hopefully we see rules for more of the Underworlds warbands in WarCry.

I'd buy that if it ends up being a better deal than buying the underworlds warbands.

It looks like a take on Warcry with hex based movement that uses Underworlds bands. The Glory tokens for UW appear to be used also. That actually sounds pretty cool, especially if it was like Blitz Bowl where they include some cards for other Underworlds bands in the box for some replayibility/variety.

I love Underworlds (and also enjoy Warcry), and the Warbands are awesome and characterful, but I do wish they had rules for Warcry or another more traditional skirmish game also.

I imagine a little while at least, or they’d probably have shown something in the Mortal Realms preview.

Probably better to expand the current warbands to match the AoS bands instead of chuckin out one off.

Another round of kits for them would be cool actually. I don’t play Warcry so not sure how good that’d be.
But like Necromunda is now doing second wave kits, that’d be cool to look at, as these are nice models they did for Warcry.

I would like to see additional options for the cult warbands. New specialists, full on hero options, monstrous creatures, etc. Buuuut I realize the commercial viability of what is quite limited. Maybe some sort of upgrade kit so other units can be drafted into their rosters.
