As mentioned on our forums, our contributions to this blog will continue to vary based upon:
- having newsworthy items worth sharing;
- and finding the bandwidth required to post new entries.
When forced to choose between finishing up products or making new entries, polishing up the products for release will usually win. This being said, we’ve now made sufficient progress on a number of fronts to provide everyone with a long overdue update.
Call to Arms
The Call to Arms expansion is now inside containers on their way to our respective US and European warehouses. We expect it to reach our shores by month’s end, and to be available in stores in early May, a couple of weeks later than we had originally hoped. The game will be available for pre-orders on our web store next week. MSRP will be $20 in the US, €15 in Europe.
Call to Arms rulebook – now available for download!
We think you will find it worth the wait. A few lucky souls got a preview of it at Alan Moon’s Gathering of Friends last week, courtesy of a few airshipped copies now in our possession. To help you remain patient for its arrival, we have posted the rules online. Click here to download them.
The next expansion in line for release is the expanded deluxe, printed-version of Epic BattleLore. This expansion should reach stores around the end of May, and will retail for $15 in the US, and €15 in Europe. It will be available for pre-order on our web store at the same time as Call to Arms, sometime next week.
Epic BattleLore – Deluxe printed version coming soon!
Next in line, just in time for an Origins release (late June/early July), will be our first two Specialist packs: a Dwarven Battalion and a Goblin Skirmishers set. These packs introduce new units to the game, along with the Specialist and Weapon summary cards necessary to field them. For now, let’s just say that they will significantly alter your game. Here’s a sneak peek at one of the pack’s cover. Each of these packs will retail for $24 in the US and €20 in Europe.
