  1. I really enjoy BattleLore as well as my game group here in Orlando Florida, but your take may be a little different. We really appreciate how the system works and is constructed to add new game and play elements with each expansion, while not besting what has already been presented. Truly a grand effort! Please note these comments were written by the Author ;-) Richard Borg
  2. The Green Banner Spider is not pointless... His poison ability really was difficult to launch even when storing Lore. The ability to Poison was going to be schedule for the Giant Scorpion, but that is another story... Richard Borg

    Arbalests

    New banner, same figure, but it all seems to work along with the Bolt Thrower unit that will need two crew figures. Enjoy! Richard Borg

    Arbalests

    Actually, a rule update was planned for a number of range weapons. The summary cards for the following range weapons Common Bow, Crossbow, Long Bow are amended as follows: Special: When used on the move the number of dice rolled is 1. The Sling summary card as released in the Horrific Horde expansion is correct. The Reflex Bow summary card is amended as follows: The line - Do not collect Lore tokens - is deleted from the card. This of course is because all units will collect Lore tokens when in Melee and range weapon units do not collect Lore tokens when doing ranged combat (per Battle Savvy Troops rules). The Arbalest summary card released in the Beaded Brave expansion is the correct version and takes precedence over the Arbalest card found in the Hundred Years War expansion. We have been playing with these changes for some time now and all these were planned to be part of an updated edition for BattleLore. Of course, you can start enjoying them right now by amending your current summary cards. Enjoy! Richard Borg
  5. Very, very nice work indeed! I also really like the look of your terrain as well. Did you make it yourself or is it something you purchased. One suggestion, to give your game more visual appeal and don't take this the wrong way because your set up looks great, you may consider fielding infantry units with one stand of 3 figures glued on it, which becomes the unit's banner stand and then have 3 individual figures make up the rest of the unit. When the unit takes its 4th hit the banner stand is removed, just the same as if it was a single figure. Visually, even when your unit is down to its last figure, the stand of 3 figures still looks like you have a fighting force on the battlefield, not just an single figure. I mounted my figures on a thin card stock stand which seems to have worked well for us so far. Mounted units have a stand with 2 figures (the banner stand) and 2 other figures. Perhaps someone here could instruct me on how to include a picture, so I could show you what we have done. Richard Borg
  6. Boromir_and_kermit is indeed correct in his answers. Days of Wonder did send out green replacement banners and if you have both we recommend the use the green banners for your Ostrich Riders. When Battle Savvy rules are used, I personally recommend that they be used in all BattleLore scenarios, all units collect Lore in melee, but do not collect Lore when doing ranged combat. Ogres have their own unique abilities, and although they seem to fight on the side of Goblins most of the time, they do not share any Goblin inherent abilities. Richard Borg
  7. Caboose said: Thanks for the clarification on those Call to Arm cards. Will there be a like setup of cards to use for the dwarfs and/or humans as well? [as in pure dwarfs, and pure human] The short answer is - Yes. You will find both deployment and specialist cards in each of the future expansions. We hope the above will also provide players with guide lines and the opportunity to enjoy both of these coming expansions to their fullest. Richard Borg
  8. jcikal said: I bought a core BL set last year that had the command cards in english but the Lore deck was in French. Anyway I could purchase just the Lore set in english? I did put english stickers on the deck but would be nice if I could get a genuine english deck. I believe I have an English deck of Lore cards, if Fantasy Flight can't help you out. if you live in the USA, post your complete mailing address here and I'll send it. Richard Borg
  9. A unit that retreats and is attacked again on the same turn may battle back if not eliminated of forced to retreat. Richard Borg

Elberon said: Scots are the Dwarves as per Mr Borgs world and from my google powered research there was an arabic empire along north coast of Africa through the middle East and up to (and some times including Istanbul / constantinople ) so the Goblin races will do for them ;-) Actually not my world at all...

    Battle Savvy

    In the BEGINNING, when a defending unit was not eliminated or did not retreat from the hex it occupied would fight back. No man, dwarf or goblin, in our brief history would stand and do nothing to defend itself. That indeed would of been pure fantasy! Battle Savvy, was a way to straighten out some of the half-truth chronicles of the past. For a man, dwarf or goblin, will always fight back if given the opportunity! Enjoy the Truth as now presented! Richard Borg
  12. Actually we did a two player game of Siege of Minas Tirith for Parker Brothers Lord of the Rings Risk in 2003. Have also playtested a number of Lord of the RIngs battles with BattleLore. Currently these are not part of BattleLore future plans. I do believe there were a number of Lord of the Rings battles, however, that were posted when DoW BattleLore web site was up. Not to long ago someone had mentioned they had downloaded all the community created battles (sorry I do not recall who it was) it may be worth a search if you can find the link. Richard Borg

The Battle at the gates of Mordor. Battles from previous ages. Easy. Easy. Easy. Heck. Call the goblins orcs and you could set up a reasonable ME battle with the base set alone. I might look into creating a scenario. Its been done! Just not published yet... Richard Borg Thuddeus said: MWAlbion said: now, Battles of Middle Earth.... I'd buy that in a heartbeat !
