Amazing scenes at the UK Games expo today. The CMON stand was demoing but also had, perhaps the only ones in the country available, 5-6 copies of the Nights watch starter. In the ultimate troll move they were not for sale. They were also demoing over the Kickstarter exclusive terrain. I can imagine the conversations. "So the John Snow set and terrain, where can I buy that?". "Ah, you can't". Punter then wanders off to spend money elsewhere.

Level of stock of ASOIAF at other stands was minimal as well,
with many units (Pyromancer's, Greataxes, Scorpion builder crew etc etc) just not available at all. Keep it up Asmodee.

The more I look at the Targaryen stuff, the more I want it. I think it nudged a bit higher than the Baratheons.... Though I still really like the Baratheon reveals. This will likely change my spending this year.

Wonder if there will be more stuff for the first factions. Like new Lannister or Stark Units. Or if they are pretty much complete now.

Baratheon will be Heavy Infantry and heavy cavalry that favor prolonged combats. Dothraki will be light and fast and fragile, but with really good morale.

Both sound good.

I'm in for those Stag Knights and the Bolton bad guys. These minis, along with the Lannisters, cut throats and Tullys really capture the fantasy feeling I've been looking for in a miniature range for decades.

Out of interest how is the distribution Stateside?

Over here getting some units such as Umber Greataxes, any Nightwatch unit or starter or Spearwives is nigh on impossible at the moment.

Compared to something like Games Workshop, its abysmal... however they are ahead of Fantasy Flight who frequently has X-wing ships sold out for six to ten months at a time. If you don't mind small mark-ups you can find anything.

That said, their release calendar is a joke. You can't trust most dates they provide, and different stores have entirely different items up for pre-order, etc...

Looks like they've decided they're not subsidising the US shipping any more, the comments aren't happy

although they were fairly clear that the original esitmates wer based on 'Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). ' and it was fairly clear that even the base pledge was coming in considerably lager than that

If you're in Australia, check the KS comments field about shipping. Seems like CMON is doing the same thing they did to Australia that they did in the HATE campaign. So put in your state capital for the city, even if you live in the suburbs.

Fayez: "The geekfunder pledge manager doesn't work nice with suburbs in Australia, NSW from past experience. I recommend you put Sydney as the city, but put the correct post code and add the suburb name to the address lines. I've done this in the past and i've received much cheaper shipping. e.g. with sydney its approx. $20 USD, but when I put Parramatta, which is a suburb in Sydney, the shipping was almost double"

Free Folk Followers of Bone

onflict and combat are highly mental engagements. If one can cause their opponent to cower in fear of their attack, then the battle is halfway won. Creating a scary visage goes a long way to making your opponents fearful of your presence. In the Free Folk army, the Followers of Bone have allied themselves with the Lord of Bones, dutifully following him where he goes and fighting on his behalf. Their penchant for adorning themselves in all manner of bones as well as wielding them may seem crude, but it is still certainly effective. And while their attacks might not be as entirely effective as steel swords or plate armor, the effect on enemy morale more than makes up for it. Soon, Free Folk commanders will be able to add this disquieting unit to their ranks.

The Followers of Bone cost six points to field. Their mid-range cost comes with moderate stats. As a melee unit, they have a respectable melee attack total of eight when at full ranks, hitting on 3+. Their speed is a fairly average 5. Their defensive stats might leave a little to be desired. As stated above, bones are no true replacement for steel, but it is better than simply crude furs that other Free Folk units take to battle. As such, their defensive save is only a 5+ and their morale to fight is moderate, with a 7+. It might make commanders want to keep them away from combat. But that’s where they would be mistaken.

Being stuck in combat is right where the Followers of Bone want to be. Of course, as a melee unit, having them elsewhere would be a waste, but attacking them is a true tough decision for opponents. This is because of their Horrific Visage special rule. It says that any time they are attacked with melee by an opponent, before that attack is resolved, that attacking unit must perform a Panic Test. This means that, depending on the opponent and depending on the roll, the Followers of Bone could be seeing few attack dice headed their direction every time they’re attacked. And anytime that enemy models can be removed from the board is a win. Units down to their last rank might find themselves even wiped out simply because their resolve failed the at the last moment.

A Bone to Pick With You
The Followers of Bone unit box also comes with the Champion of Bone unit attachment. He works well with just about any unit, but particularly well with the Followers of Bone. His special ability, Prey on Fear, lets the unit restore up to two Wounds when an enemy engaged with them fails a Panic Test. Since the Followers are going to be causing Tests every time they are attacked with melee, it means that the moderate defensive abilities they have could easily be mitigated by opponents losing figures from Panic Tests against them.

Together, the Followers of Bone and the Champion of Bone are a formidable unit on the battlefield. The best place to find them will be in melee, possibly even benefitting from going against multiple enemy units at a time in order to maximize their Horrific Visage ability. Commanders will do well to keep them away from enemy ranged units and aim them at targets with poor Morale stats. That strategy will do them well on the battlefield.

The Followers of Bone unit box will be available soon.

I think it is just the static pose of the 2nd guy, the static poses really stick out when there is so much space between then on the movement trays.

THE NIGHT’S WATCH’S EYES AND EARS
Jun 07, 2019
Manning The Wall, the Night’s Watch is primarily a defensive force. They keep the nightmare horrors that live further north from invading their way into the southern lands of Westeros. Their job includes knowing the dangers that they may be facing, as well as information on enemy formations, numbers, and any potential weaknesses there might be. They cannot afford to be caught unaware by an advancing enemy force. The Ranger Trackers serve as the Night’s Watch’s eyes and ears out in the field. These scout cavalry troopers undertake dangerous missions in enemy territory in order to gain vital intelligence. Soon, Night’s Watch commanders will be able to add this unit to their forces in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game.

The Ranger Trackers cavalry unit costs six points to field. The unit really packs in the value for those points as well. While their speed might seem moderate at six, it’s important to remember that, being a cavalry unit, they get a free Maneuver action at the start of their turn. That means they can easily head up to 12” with a direction change in the middle, letting them skirt around enemy units or obstacles. Being light cavalry, they are not heavily armored, so their Defensive Save is only a 5+. However, their Night’s Watch training does imbue them with a Morale of 6+.

On the offensive side of the coin, they are equipped with both short-range recurve bows and short swords. However, Night’s Watch commanders will probably want to make more use out of their bows, as they have slightly better stats at seven dice and 3+ to hit, as opposed to six dice and 4+ to hit in melee. However, those stats alone only tell part of the offensive story for the Ranger Trackers. They also have an Order, Mark Target. This gives Vulnerable to an enemy at Long Range and in Line of Sight. This is perfect for setting up a devastating charge or volley of arrows. It should be noted that the Ranger Trackers are under no obligation to immediately attack the unit they Mark, and do not need to immediately expend that token. They can readily toss the Vulnerable marker out there and then attack someone else, or retreat away to a safer position, setting up the enemy for a knock-out blow from another Night’s Watch unit. This makes the Ranger Trackers extremely flexible tactically on the field.

When this cavalry hits the table, Night’s Watch players will have a speedy force that can deal some quick damage to the enemy, setting up for the slower units to come in and finish things off.

The Night’s Watch Ranger Trackers will be hitting store shelves soon.

Ha! I was just thinking this morning about getting more of these guys.
I wish they would give you one alternate sculpt in these boxes that repeat units in the starter. It would give me more of a reason to buy them. The sculpts for Ranger Trackers are already pretty awesome, but I want more! The guy with the sword from the cover for example!

They'll likely have no forelegs if that's what you class as the difference but that's how they are in the books. There's little or nothing to distinguish Dragons/Wyverns in most (real world) myths and even most heraldic uses; that separation is far from universal. 2 legged dragons are perfectly acceptable (especially considering it's entirely fictional...).

Even in D&D/ Pathfinder terms a wyvern is a dragoon... I guess I would just prefer a four legged dragon. Not a deal breaker, but yeah... I would prefer 4 legs....
