    Mordliss got a reaction from LordPeP in Runewars Miniatures Game end of Battlelore?   
    I agree with this, actually I couldn't agree with you more. The game is great as it currently is, and to sell the game because of the absence of a fourth faction, if you are already enjoying the three factions they released, is extremely ridiculous, and makes no sense.
     
    On a side note, who actually says the Undead are bad guys? Or for that matter the Uthuk Yllan? Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't the Daquan Lords killing the Undead and Uthuk Yllan, to the point of hoping to exterminate all of them once and for all? Are the Undead and Uthuk Yllan not doing the same thing that the Daquan Lords are doing, albeit in there own way?  
     
    I always laugh when I see this conversation of good guys vs bad guys... if your on one side, don't you always believe your a good guy? Do you think the Uruk hai in Lord of the Rings knew they were evil? Or did they think they were fighting human monsters according to the orders of their boss and to survive? Just like Human and Elven knights fought Uruk hai according to their orders and desire for survival and to be the dominate races.

    I cant imagine they would 3rd Edition Descent already. They would create some serious aggravation amongst the players that they picked up specifically with the App's release. Plus, I can't see them sinking some time into the App only to move on to a 3rd Edition so quickly. Some other posters uncovered some unused hero icons in the Apps database, I believe there were four completely new heroes along with four 1st Edition Heroes that have yet to be released.
     
    I am hoping we hear something soon. I know I would be among the crowd that would be extremely disappointed by the end of 2nd Edition content. I am looking forward to FFG's year of Terrinoth (hopefully) with RuneWars Miniature game, and hopefully we can get some lore books and I wouldn't mind a LCG based out of the universe.

    Wow, Godwin law in a BattleLore thread.
     
    Still, your question should be different: were all nazis bad people? Don't think so (we had a pope that belonged to the Hitlerjugend). And second question: did all nazis see themselves as being bad people? Don't think so either, thus I don't see why a Uthuk should see himself as being "evil"

    Sorry for further derailing; possibly we could return on topic?

    This is something I really will never understand. The game is perfectly playable with two factions only, thus with the content of the core set. It's not like there is something missing making the game unplayable. And we don't have 2 factions only, we have 3, and each of them comes with several unit types, so, replayability is huge. Selling a game because there's no 4th faction seems rather senseless. Selling a game because it's no fun? Sure. Selling a game because it's repetitive? Sure. Selling a game because you want Elves but there are none? It's kindergarten behaviour

    Mordliss got a reaction from YariSamurai in Expansions and War Packs   
    I also decided to enter the world of Warhammer Conquest for the first time this year. My order hasnt yet arrived but I picked up just about everything I could on the Holiday site and then a few exra packs that I know I wanted from CoolStuffInc.
    While I cannot answer your question about how the factions feel in the card game (as I don't have it yet) I can hopefully give some
    Insight into the game flavor/cool factor at least for me. Obviously a core set is a must, and if your into deck customization, a second or third core set is useful. This is because in the core set you are given a lot of single copies of each card and your deck allows 3 of same card to be included.
    The Core Set comes with
    Space Marines; your typical humans in space with some brutal twists like chain swords.
    Orks; Literally Orcs in Space with some sloppy machinery throw together. Powerful yet dumb.
    Eldar: Space Elves, cloaking and deception, precision strikes.
    Dark Eldar; Dark Elves
    Chaos: Demons and Cultists in space
    Tau: Think high intelligent humanoid cyborg/robots
    Imperial Guard : Our traditional Military as it would be now, tanks and the army.
    Now aside from that, the two big box expansions will provide you with two additional factions, which in my opinion, are some of the coolest in Warhammer. You get the Tyranids, in "The Great Devourer" which are organic alien life forms that just want to consume the universe ( think Zerg from Starcraft or Aliens from Alien vs Predator) and are my favorite Warhammer faction. The other big expansion "Legions of Death" provides Necrons, essentially the "undead in space" which consist of a cool, yet complex play style.
    Now those are the only two big box expansions, and then you have the war packs which add full play sets (x3 of each card) to your collection and each pack provides some additional cards for each faction released up to that war pack cycle. So tyranid cards won't be included until the cycle after "The Great Devourer" released.
    Honest the most bag for your buck is going to come from the Holiday sale, $3 a war pack is unheard of, but if your on a budget I'd recommend a core set $20 with the sale, and one of each big box expansion $10 with the sale. Puts you at $40 and if you can pick up either a second core or a few $3 warpacks just to fill out your solo faction decks.
    Just remember that this game is going away, so what you don't get now is going to be extremely difficult to obtain later.
    Hope I helped you out a little, I know I can't tell you how each faction plays in the actual card game but hopefully I shed some light on the flavor of each of them for you. If you have any more questions feel free to ask!!

    Mordliss got a reaction from Toqtamish in Quick Quesiton on Purchases.   
    So just an update for anyone that is also wondering the same thing, Kalar with the Customer Service team responded with the following:
    "You are unable to place an order with items containing 'Holiday Sale sales items' - with items not found on the Holiday Sale. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, we also appreciate your understanding and support. As always, please contact us directly if you have any further questions or concerns."
    So I am guessing that they might be shipping from two different locations? I did go ahead and purchase Arkham Horror Card a game from FFG, and then I went ahead and picked up everything I could for WH40K Conquesf from the holiday sale. I noticed I got an email advising the FFG purchase is on the way however I am still waiting on the Holiday sale items tracking number.
    Who knows, hoping to get that conquest order shipped out soon!
    Side note: Thanks for responding you two!

    I agree, I don't like what they did here. Each boxed expansion brought with it new things, never repeats except for now... Hopefully this is not the way things to come are going... Mists and Chains should have been a big box expansion and moved on to the next one with a new condition or how about a big box that uses all of the content of previous expansions?

    So this was up for pre-sale st Gen Con which means it's ready to be sold... Why are they not releasing it now? We are entering another weekend that Chains hasn't hit store shelves now and I'd really like to dive into an undead themed campaign, but refuse to start mists until I have the complete campaign!!
    Anyone have any idea on release date? What are your thoughts?

    You sir, are doing exactly what I am doing. We are playing Heirs of Blood right now and I have been intentionally avoiding all undead monsters in anticipation for Mists + Chains. I can't wait to launch and undead themes campaigns as the undead of always been my favorite. I may stretch to include Plague Worms in my undead scheme since they are diseased. I have also not used any plot decks for the undead lieutenants!
    I can't wait any longer!!! Come on FFG!!!

    I think toenail is saying that the Hero Yeoman Archer would be placed within an already deployed group of Yeoman Archers, making the group of 3 actually a group of 4.

    Welcome to the family! Enjoy the product you have and know that there is so much added in the expansion packs available that you've got yourself a nice little hobby with potentially over 40 heroes and 50 monster groups to choose from!
