  1. Hi I always kept an eye to BattleLore since its beginning with Days of Wonder, but never though to buy it since I am not the miniature game type. But recently, I made an exchange with BattleLore 2nd Edition, I though, why not? ... Well we loved it !! Fantastic 2 players games with a great game experience !. Since them ... I just follow sales ... and in less than a year I had the opportunity to buy Hernfar Guardians and Warband of Scorn at 50% ... and just finished last black friday with Heralds of Dreadfall and Terror of the Mists (same -50%). And now, I'm looking at the reinforcement packs. I totally agree with Daverman, first of all, focus on Hernfar Guardians and Warband of Scorn, it will add a large versitality to the base game, and even if you buy nothing else, you will have a great whole game. But, if you are only interested in variety and want to buy only one, I'd say go for Heralds of Dreadfall, it will add a third faction with similar aspect of the others two from the basic game, the drawback, is that when you will want to enhance your armies, you will have to buy all the other pack to upgrade all army in the same way. So in that, just focusing on Dakan and Uthuk armies first is a wise choice, to mitigate risk and your wallet.
  2. Hi I confirm that for Descent, it is smooth corners dice. Thanks
  3. Hi If you use a drum full of sand to polish them, it will also alter their drawing. I was just guessing if the directly exists for sale, but i have only seen the hard cornered one. Thanks
  4. Hi Do anyone know where to find the "smooth"dice that we sometime see ? I'm talking about these ones: We could see them in some news from FFG: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2014/4/10/lady-luck-is-a-carnivore/ The only one that I see are the rectangular one: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2014/2/4/increase-your-dice-pool/ Any idea? Thanks
  5. Hi Solo variant for Legend No 3 is available for download in italian, french and english http://legenden-von-andor.de/en/bonus-material/solo-variante-fur-legende-3/ You will also found on yhe website another legend based on the other side of the board. According to Kosmos (original deutch editor) and Iello (french editor), extension will be available soon. But it is a very good news that FFG will take care of the english version, because they have Print On Demand which is excellent for such extension. Sadly, in France it is not edge who took care of the traduction, but Iello … no print on demand possibility Bye
  6. Hi Considering the game price, I think that sleeve is a good option. I use Mayday (orange and red) but i'd like to know if FFG sleeve are unglossy ? Mayday sleeve are glossy. Thanks
  7. Note: Mayday Standard Sleeves are sold in 100 pack, you will need 2 for Space Hulk : Death Angel. Mayday Premium Sleeves are sold in 50 pack, you will need 4 for Space Hulk : Death Angel. Bye
  8. Hi I bought Standard Mayday sleeves, initialy I took the Orange (USA Chimera Game 57,5x89mm) for Space Hulk : Death Angel, and Purple (USA Game 56x87mm) for the game Bohnanza. My conclusion is that the purple one work perfectly for Space Hulk, all cards from the original game and its two expansions (print on demand) fit in the original box with the sleeves. The Orange are ok too, but the purple have exactly the same size. So I would say that it depend on you, if you want to have 1,5mm security up/down the card, go for the orange one, but you will also have 2mm (right/left). If you want sleeves that match perfectly the card, go for the purple. Be careful, I'm using the standard sleeves, not the premium, because they are thinner, so the card fit in the box. I will use the Orange for Bohnanza, even if the card are smaller than Space Hulk, but I don't have a box issue, the bos of Bohnanza is far bigger, so it won't be a problem. Bye
  9. Hi Is it a green team's bad luck or player bad luck ? Strangely, the green team have the better statitics for attack purpose: each other team have their kind of "super" marine, but in the green one each green marine have only 33% chance of failure while attacking (only when the die roll 0 or 5), and on a 4, they have a sort of "critical" hit. And the best part is that not only it raise their attack potential, but it does it for all members the teams, so even if you lose one marine, the capacity is still effective. Honestly, I won't count on this "critical" capacity, but having a team with greater attack potential could be usefull. I think that the green team must be used wisely, it is the sort of team that must be used cautiously, using their drawback and advantages at their best, maybe a tricky team to use.
  10. Hi You could see it in an other way, while supporting, Gideon have 50% of chance to survive a swarm even with an Alpha. In my opinion, the green team have the better statitics for attack purpose: each other team have their kind of "super" marine, green team don't have "super power" ...but ... each green marine have only 33% chance of failure while attacking (only when the die roll 0 or 5), and on a 4, they have a sort of "critical" hit. On the dice, skulls are on face 1, 2 and 3, so adding a capacity to all greens marines on the 4 raise their stats while attacking , it is a sort of "critical hit", if this capacity have been associated to face that allready had a skull, I would agree with you, but here not only it raise their attack potential, but it does it for all members the teams, so even if you lose one marine, the capacity is still effective. Honestly, I won't count on this "critical" capacity, but having a team with greater attack potential could be usefull. I will say that the green team is not my favorite one, the grey one is with their force field is, this stalling capacity is quite usefull.
  11. Hi First point, the cards MUST be protected, after two solo games without sleeves, the card began to suffer, it is not the quality of the card, but they must be manipulated often in the game, and they are relatively thin. I've read a lot of post, here and at Edge (Europe distributor), the fact is the FFG sleeves seems ok (the green one), but after you have difficulties to put them back in the box, obviously with the two expansions. For my part, I will try MaydayGames cards sleeves : "Premium USA Chimera Game Sleeves" or "USA Chimera Games Sleeves" (orange color code) they are both 57.5 x 89 mm the primera are sold in pack of 50 and Standard in pack of 100. The premium are 125% thicker according to MaydayGames, so I've ordered the standard one to make the card going to the box. That's important that with MaydayGames tou take the Chimera (orange color code 57.5x89mm) and not the Standard USA (purple color code 56x89mm), I've ordered the Standard USA for the game Bohnanza (that's the recommended ones for this games according to MaydayGames), and the Space Hulk Death Angel cards are a little larger than the Bohnanza card. Hope it helps I will take you in touch, I'm waiting for the two expansions and the card sleeves
