So I'm pretty excited for the new Feast for Crows POD, ordered it as soon it was available.  There's only one thing that really bugs me about it, and that's House Arryn using Tyrell pieces.  I'm not thrilled at the idea of the rose representing Arryn, or of Green pieces running around the board while all the cards are blue, and I'm pretty dissapointed FFG didn't include such pieces in the expansion.

 

Here's my question:  Does anyone think it would be possible for me to/know how I could go about having a custom set of pieces made for House Arryn?  I'm a pretty bad painter so I wouldn't want to do it myself, and I wouldn't want them to be solid blue or anything similarly conspicuous.  If this isn't possible I guess I'll just grin and bear it and enjoy a (hopefully) great expansion, but in an ideal world I'd have blue marbled plastic pieces akin to those the other houses have and printed cardboard tokens for orders/supply/victory/influence tracks. 

If anyone has any pointers of where I could have something like this made/how I could do it myself I would greatly apreciate it.

Alternately, if I were to start some kind of petition to show FFG there was a big enough fanbase to market such a product, how many people would be willing to sign it?  Ideally it would include the following Arryn components:

Footmen
Knights
Ships
Siege Engines
Power Tokens (+1 to Mark the Eyrie as Arryn)
Victory marker
supply barrel
influence track icons
player screen
Eyrie home area defense marker

 

If enough people were interested in buying such a product I don't see why FFG wouldn't make a collectors' item out of it like the arkham horror minatures, right?

I would definitely buy those components.  As it is I am going to try to make them but I am not yet sure how.

Aye some blue pieces would be appriciated. Through FFG store or in a non-POD expansion in the future.

I got in touch with FFG, and they said they have no announcements regarding this at the time, and are unable to accept custom orders of blue pieces.  Sadly I haven't found the fan support I was hoping there woould be for such an expansion, so as of the moment I really doubt we'll ever see dedicated House Arryn pieces, which is a tragedy.

I'm frankly surprised so few people who read this topic expressed interest, I would have imagined this would be right up everyone's alley.

Well this "extension" is not hugely popular, so this explains that.

 

But as you can see here : http://boardgamegeek...nits-and-tokens

 

A lot of people are on your side, and that is what should be showned to FFG.

 

In my opinion, I think FFG should sell a Premium Pieces Pack with all new pieces from all houses ( including Aryn, and maybe Targaryen for the PoD ADWD).

And the new pieces should be inspired by the show : http://imgur.com/B86e2t2

 

It would be awesome, and a lot of people would be ready to put a lot of money in it.

I would most definitely support a dedicated expansion for house Arryn. Something similar to how 'The Horned Rat' expansion expanded 'Chaos in the Old World'. As well as all the components required to play House Arryn, I would also like to see included an additional board section added to the end of the Influence Tracks so to accommodate for seven player games. Additional stronghold and castle tokens to be placed on the map within reach of House Arryn's starting position may also be necessary so Arryn has a fighting chance of claiming victory points.

I would be interested in Arryn pieces and a rule set to turn the game into a 7 player match.

I bought the expansion pack, I would love to have a full set of components for House Arryn.

What makes you say it's not hugely popular?  Does anyone know how well it's selling? 

 

Also, what Targaryen pieces?  There are no Targaryen forces in DwD.

Also, I disagree with new pieces based on the show, I honestly love the marbled plastic look.

I wish the game tokens packs they sell had the knight tokens in it. I'd buy a blue pack in a second if they did.

I probably would to, especially if the footmen looked more like the game of thrones footmen.

I would definitely pay for marbled blue House Arryn expansion pieces, as well as something more substantial than PoD stuff.

On Vassal there's a 9-player variant…"are you listening FFG(?)"…I would buy that in a second!

The same guy who made the 9 player Winds of Winter expansion made a set of House Arryn tokens for me.  Here's the link for those interested.  I just finished up my set today, and it's much better than using Tyrell pieces.  I took the sigil from the victory tracker and magnified it by 125% and used that to make a home area marker for the Eyrie so as to fix what is (in my opinion) the expansions biggest flaw that the Arryns max power at 19 while everyone else maxes at 20.

...just to add-on, I don't think FFG would have ANY problem selling out a limited edition 3 House Expansion Pack to include three new colors of marbled plastic pieces, House cards, power tokens, order tokens, etc., for House Arryn (an obvious choice), and whatever else they come up with...Tully (?)...Targareyen (?)...Mormont (?)...Clegane (?)...Estermont (?).
