... Because BL2 is already 3 weeks old and we need more.
Given that Orcs, Elves, Skeletons and Dwarves all appear on command cards, I'm feeling safe in saying those faction expansions will be forthcoming.
The Onslaught card features an army that looks vaguely like Saracens, they could be elves though, or another faction. Of course it could just be random art. But FFG has a certain economy with art, i.e., they tend to use the same piece of art in multiple locations, so I am inclined to believe that this is also an easter egg. Same for the Counter Attack card. It features heavily armored knights and a Dragon. It is not obvious what faction either belongs to.
Is there someone with more background in the Runebound universe that might be able to make some plausible deductions about what factions these might be, if any?
Also, any rumors or guesses as to what might be in the new expansion packs? Total speculation, but I think we'll see:
- Base Faction sets for at least orcs, elves, dwarves, and undead
- Expansion packs for existing factions. I'll bet they will be clamshell boxes of individual units a la X-Wing and Descent Lieutenants
- Scenario Packs. I'm betting these will feature additional terrain types and a small set of scenario cards for each faction. May also include non-aligned minis for things like monsters, dragons, etc. So either they are independent AI, or could be used with any faction.
Just speculation, but I'd love some rumors, confirmation/disconfirmation if anyone has some.
