Overall I was very impressed with what I saw of the miniatures at the UK expo in terms of quality and crispness of sculpts. Coming from a GW perspective some of the sprues seemed a little sparse in comparison, but not to the detriment of the final product. These are also some sizeable miniatures, the cavalry looked big to me. Cannot talk about the customer service of those on the stands as I am socially awkward at the best of times, but it always seemed busy. I am very interested to see how this game and range fares, some of the designs seem like quite an acquired taste and it is a very competitive market out there. Distribution will also be key, for example the amount of ASOIAF product available at the Expo was pitiful.

Love those trolls and heavy cav. The executor is intriguing. At first glance, it’s the first conquest model I haven’t been floored by (I simply like it rather than love it and gotta have it!), but I feel I need more information. I imagine there is a reason this guy looks so ‘un-spire-like’ and I look forward to learning what that reason is.

An chance we could spoiler those pictures for mobile users?

It struck me as odd that the face was painted as flesh because kn the renders and art I saw, I had the impression that it was a mask

That spire heavy cav looks awesome! Kind of makes me wish there was more ornate metal work on the regular spire stuff.

I like the mask idea too.

I doubt most of my Spire will have normal skin tones anyways so that should help.

Multi- limbed cavalry is right up my alley as well!

Eh come on man, don't start measuring the coffin before the game is even born.
You could have said the same thing about infinity or Kings of War not too long ago, but both games are alive and well.

on the forum. Obviously

I don't like how you can shoot into combat with no penalty. In the rule book it says that units doing that might get the obscured penalty, but they aren't doing that. They should really change it so that it is always obscured, regardless of unit size.

Yep Sarouan, that's exactly what it is. The first Dweghom were created by the elder dragons but when those exiled for disobedience happened across War's chamber, they returned to the surface (empowered by the horsemans gifts) and murdered every subservient Dwegom in a genocide which preceded the second great dragon war. The Dwegom freed themselves from the oppression of the dragons and take great pleasure in using them as beasts of burden. Antagonizing and torturing them as.

The Drake is a lesser enslaved dragon. Lesser.

Ofc the dragons we see today are a devolved form of the once great elders...

Don't worry Cthulu. Line of sight, target restriction, obscurment etc is consistent with units in and out of combat. So intervening friendly/enemy troops are treat the same in all circumstances. Theres no "combat armour" from ramhed attacks

Less than 2 weeks to release (fingers crossed) do definitely worth resharing thos absolute beauty of a trailer...

If you except the starter box, the others are actually a bit similar to what can be found on the market. Individual boxes don't have that many miniatures inside (12 for infantry, 3 for cavalry/monstruous infantry). The starter is the only true bargain, and it only applies to 100 Kingdoms/Spire so far. We don't know if we'll get something similar for Dweghoms or Nords.

They announced some months ago that the Dweghom and Nords would get their own army boxes with multiple units inside.

When those 2 factions are released, they will have army starter sets which will net you a discount. Not as much as the 2 player set but still a discount.

They plan to periodically repackaged the 2 player starter set with new factions. So eventually it will be Dweghon vs Nords, then Wardruun vs Undead, Weavers vs City States and so on...

Didn't they something about a Chinese Empire themed army too? That's what I'm interested.

I would be interested in Dominion, but I don't want to go undead again. I technically already have that with Necrons.

Yes, an oriental empire was one discussed a while ago. I'm hoping for terracotta army style automatons. Purely speculation.

What excites me most honestly is the Spire calvary, that kind of awesome weirdness was more than i could have hoped, and if the rest of the lines expand in a similar way then I am going to end up buying way too much stuff from this game.

Its not that weird. Its just a centaur. Its a rather nice take on a centaur, but its still a centaur.

Note. The Ardent Automaton for the Dweghom are light. So when the spire are flooding the board with drones and the 100k are sending out their skirmishes... why not just toss out some burning robots XD

Sure, but at that level of abstraction elves and orcs are all just "bipedal humanoids". The details matter. It is certainly a unique take on a centaur at the very least

Huh, that's unusual.
I thought they would at least be medium. Brutes aren't light are they? Thought they would be brute like.
