From ComicThoughs' card lists and ChaosChild's deck builder it seems that the name of (CS32) Thyrus Gorman is misspelled. As many of you may know it is normally spelled Thyrus Gormann. It may have consequences for future editions of Thyrus Gormann as the card title is important for the number of Thyrus Gormanns you may have in a deck.

I guess they have to misspell his name from now on?!?

No. If they put it in the FAQ it is fine.

I definitely agree that it will be preferable, if the misspelling is corrected in an errata in the FAQ, but there is unfortunately some precedence that card titles are not corrected. Here, I think of Myrcella Baratheon in AGOT LCG, which continues to be called Myrcella Lannister in upcoming versions. I know these are small errors, but is really nice when the 'facts' are correct.

This leads me to the question: Do you think the heroes' stats and abilities reflect the characters in the way they are portraited in other Warhammer sources??

For new Warhammer players it may also have been nice and colouristic to know who the heroes actually are!?! A line at the buttom of the cards should do it, e.g.: Johannes Broheim - Former champion of the Elector Count of Ostland or Thyrus Gormann - Magister Patriarch of the Bright Order and Former Supreme Patriarch.

I don't think having their title or whatever is going to help anyone get any idea of who they are if tey don't already know. And honestly it isn't all that important to the average non-WH player of this game. They will be able to create their own understanding for the characters based on how powerful they are in the game, their traits, factions, abilities, and flavor text. If they become curious there are internet resources available as well as just grabbing some of the various written source material.

And this should help me?

Well, the pictures on the cards don't help you either. If you are interested in card mechanics that is fine, but some players may like to play campaigns set in the Warhammer world. W:I is similar to WFB in that perspective.

With campaings you mean KI controlled themed decks with built up capitol and decisive draw order to play against? Could be interesting.

No. With campaigns I mean a prearranged storyline containing a number of scenarios linked together in either a campaign tree or using a campaign map. If you have access to source books like Warhammer The General's Compendium or Warhammer Storm of Chaos, you know what I mean. We did this when we played WarCry and we plan to do this again when we will play W:I. It seems pretty obvious to play a two-player Storm of Chaos campaign as this game is called Warhammer: Invasion (although Archaon is missing).

Hmm, so with limited decks or how to make a campaign out of a LCG?

I have put up a new thread to show how a LCG campaign may look like.

I get the idea... I'm not really the target audience I guess. The whole point of games created on an IP for me is that I get to create the interactions and control the direction of things. I sit down with my Chaos Deck and I play Dwarves three times in a row I get to create in my own head the storyline I want rather than fighting some campaign form one of the source materials.

That said I do get the attraction of it. A player in AGoT had created a very interesting variant using the map of Westeros and vaguely Diplomacy like rules for moving around the map. Certain locations of importance had special items and whoever reached them first gained their use during the game. When opposing forces entered onto the same space decks were pulled out and the winner won the spot the loser's forces were routed. It was a lot of fun and I can see someone else having the same levelof fun recreating an old battle (or I should say fighting an ancient battle over).

Keep at it. I'm sure there are a number of people who will enjoy it.
