Possibly true?

Description

Nemesis is the first expansion for Relic, and introduces player-versus-player combat to the Relic board game. As players struggle to determine the destiny of a crucial segment of the Imperium’s far-flung border, they gain the option to assume the role of one of the Imperium’s most dangerous enemies: a blood-crazed Khorne Berserker, a cunning Eldar Exarch, a savage Tyranid Broodlord, or a seductive but lethal Champion of Slaanesh. Relic: Nemesis further tempts the Imperium’s boldest defenders with new wargear and relics.

 

Features

  • The first expansion for the Relic board game
  • Introduces player-versus-player combat
  • Players can now assume the roles of enemies to the Imperium, such as a Khorne Berserker, Eldar Exarch, Tyranid Broodlord, or Champion of Slaanesh
  • Includes six new character pieces - four nemesis pieces and two character pieces
  • Also adds four new scenario sheets, and 140 cards

I love that they did not just add a few characters and a few cards and scenarios - new gameplay options are great. The more choices, the better.

 

Pretty much gonna buy it on the first day.

So now that I have stopped jumping up and down in my office and got to read the description, we are actually getting TWO new ways of playing Relic.

 

1- the olde way, i.e. we are all working together but we are trying to achieve the same goal first. The two new characters add even more diversity to the game. Nice.

 

2- the Apostate Vs Devotee game mode which means that we can use the Imperium characters against one and another, and depending on how the game goes, we can either choose to be Apostate or Devotee.

 

3- And, now we will have The Enemies of the Imperium game mode which will allow us to fight Xeno/chaos versus Imperium.

 

So, 1 expansion, 2 new ways of playing... Awesome expansion me think.

Great idea! Many new expansion concepts (I wonder why Nemesis ' players have only one stat opposite to three like good guys) all folded into a 'big' (from the view I assume it  is comparable as box size like the  'regional' expansions from Descent 2nd) one.

 

I wonder if they shall put new adventure cards plus new equip doable even without  new rules and settings.

 

The PvP approach looks nice, I wonder if for  next  true big expansions will try something like Runebound (a new 'regional/interstellar map that is placed above original one) or the same as Talisman (Tau Space? Tomb World? Hive fleet? all placed around  original map)

First of all hello to all - this is my first post.

I have played talisman since the 1st ed. No I play Relic as well. I'm looking forward to see new expansion, the most interesting thing is they have less stats than a normal character. I can't wait to see how it works!!!!

yes it is interesting to see that the enemies are playing differently than the normal character. They seem to level up by collecting "infamy" points but only have 9 levels. Therefore, we could conclude that it was deemed harder by the developers to collect infamy than it is to collect trophy points.

 

Also, with 2 attributes and a range of special abilities, it appears that these enemies may bring an asymmetric play to the game, that is,  in a 2 player game, one player plays the enemy and uses a different system of play compared to its opponent.

 

All in all, this is very very interesting and may add a little complexity to the game which will be most welcome.

I just hope we also get miniature busts for Eversor and Stortrooper.

Please, please, please?

@Gryps, I would think so. Although, I could almost accept if FFG said "to reduce the price of the expansion from 39.99 to 34.99, we have decided that players can use the assassin and sniper busts for the two new character"

 

Although I would like to have the ability to purchase the busts separately if possible.

 

However, I am pretty sure they are not even going to open that can of worm, and instead give us 2 new busts. But if I were them, I would keep the pictures for a future news report and a little article about how these 2 new characters play.

Many 40K lovers, myself included, buy Relic for the wonderful character busts.

And would fanatically buy mini character expansions ~ like Descent lieutenants ~ even for just a miniature bust and a stats card.

Oh, and pegs!

Give us enough pegs for all busts!
