To celebrate the release of the first two Specialist sets, the Goblin Skirmishers and Dwarven Battalion, we have just released online two bonus adventures (in addition to the two that came in each of these packs) – Goblin Gold and Dwarven Renegades. You can find them in the Approved Adventures section of our website.
To our dismay, we’ve also discovered two embarrassing mistakes when unwrapping our own copies:
- The back of all the Specialist cards issued in these sets (and future sets, to be released in August) is not the one we intended it to be, resulting in a visual mismatch with the Specialist cards that came with Call to Arms. The Specialist cards in the Specialist sets incorrectly shows a back of card that is identical to the back of Deployment cards, rather than the intended back for Specialist cards 🙁
- And despite a visual inspection of the final prototypes before assembly, two of the banners in the upcoming Goblin Marauders set, incorrectly display a Blue mounted bow where they should have displayed Blue long sword banners instead, for use with the Hyena riders.
The first mistake is a purely visual and esthetic one, that does not affect gameplay, since you are supposed to choose the Specialist cards of your own liking when deploying new troops, rather than drawing them at random. We wish to apologize for it nonetheless…
The wrong and correct back of cards
The second mistake is more problematic. We have asked the manufacturer responsible for the error to airship us the correct replacement banners, which we will mail free of charge to anyone that requests them. In the meantime, you can simply use any of the Blue long sword banners that came with your base game, and attach these to your Hyena riders before deployment.
The silver lining in this is that it gives you 2 free Blue mounted bow banners – which we recommend you use with caution, if at all -. Ostrich riders should remain green bow units only!
We hope you will have fun with these new troops nonetheless, and ask for your understanding as we work to fix these issues.
