Fantasy Flight Games Announces the Reanimate Archers Unit for Runewars

May 23rd, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Reanimate Archers Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game is available now!

The expansion features eight Reanimate Archer figures, enough to field a two-tray unit on its own or attach to a larger unit. These figures are identical to the ones found in the Runewars Miniatures Game Core Set and feature five new upgrade cards to help customize any army.

The Reanimate Archers are experts at ranged attacks, and the figures found in the Reanimate Archers Unit Expansion can be combined with the figures found in the core set to create a 32-point unit, or can be fielded on their own as an 18-point unit.

The arrows of the Reanimate Archers do more than puncture. They get inside their target’s skin, infecting them with rot and disease, represented by their ability to spend two surges to give their target a blight token when they make a ranged attack. Blight tokens can weaken opposing units by removing their die before an attack, and with the Reanimate Archer’s ability to add a free surge to their strikes with their modifier dial, it’s something they can accomplish often. Furthermore, the shambling bowmen are united in their service to Waiqar, and with the “Steadfast” keyword, it becomes difficult to shake their resolve with a doubt card during a morale test.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Death Knights Expansion for Runewars

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Death Knights Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game!

The Death Knights Unit Expansion features four Death Knight figures and two plastic cavalry movement trays for use with the forces of Waiqar, as well as five upgrade cards to customize your Runewars Miniatures Game armies. The expansion also includes panic, stun, and unit ID Tokens, alongside a new condition card and token, for use with a special new type of upgrade included with the Death Knights.

The Death Knights bring fear to all unfortunate enough to encounter them. Any time they collide with an opposing unit, the Impact keyword gives the opposing unit panic tokens equal to the number of stable energy runes on the field. Additional panic tokens immediately puts the Death Knights’ target at a disadvantage, and they’re now in position to be targeted by the Death Knights’ deadly melee attack—two red dice and one blue die.

The Death Knights also come with built-in defenses. Anytime an enemy unit targets them, a mortal strike is subtracted from the attack, which nearly ensures their hefty defense of three will have to be penetrated if the foes of Waiqar have any hope of taking the riders down. Furthermore, with the Steadfast [Fear] ability, the Death Knights are difficult to rattle, increasing the morale icon of fear cards by one during morale tests.

The figures and trays included in the Death Knights Unit Expansion can be fielded together for 24 points, and additional copies can be purchased to field 42 and 55 point units.

May 15th, 2017

Grunt Games has announced their new card game, Lewt Ninja, releasing in the fall of 2017.

If you have played any Massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) like World of Warcraft, Rifts, or Star Wars the Old Republic then you have more than likely created many characters and adventured across the virtual lands of these fantasy universes. During visit to these fantasy worlds you have more than likely have ventured into one of the many dungeons in search of powerful weapons and artifacts for your character. In the early days of these games there were some players who went into these dungeons with the purpose of gathering up all of the loot for themselves even if they couldn’t use the items. The community dubbed these players as ninjas. While the creators of these worlds have since placed new mechanics and features into the looting systems of their games and decreased the hardships of players from losing out on acquiring the sought after items for their characters; a new game company is looking at the past to inspire a new card game for gamers to play.

Grunt Games LLC is the recent startup game development company by Dewayne Cameron and is based out of Grovetown Georgia. A retired U.S. Army veteran and most recently a game designer who worked developing learning games and simulators for the U.S. military. . Founded in July of 2016 Grunt Games is has been developing a table top card game which is to launch in the Fall of 2017. Lewt Ninja the title of the game was inspired by Massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) looting system and the sub-cultural references to players who are known for taking items and gear from other players. In the game of Lewt Ninja 2 to 5 players can play as one of the five hero characters classes that come with the game. Each of the classes has special abilities that will help defend against or steal loot away from the other members of your group.

boxfront-1Players will use three different decks; the Monster, Loot, and Player decks. Players draw monster cards to determine how much loot will be dropped for players to roll on. Monsters have also have special abilities that can affect how each round can be played by either changing how loot is decided or to what cards can be played or not played during the round.

Once a monster has been revealed players will then reveal the loot dropped by the monster. Players try to win and collect all 8 pieces of their hero’s armor in order to win the game. At the same time they will try to deny the other members of their group from gaining their armor pieces. Even if a player doesn’t get all of their armor they still have a chance to win the game by winning all of the loot they possibly can.

To win loot players will lay down roll cards that have numeric values, the player with the highest value wins the loot. But winning the roll doesn’t mean you have won the round. Players can then play special cards that will allow them to steal or even block another player from stealing loot.

In addition to the normal game play Lewt ninja has two other game modes; Legendary and Vote to kick. In legendary mode players will need to collect their characters hero eight piece armor set as well as their hero’s weapon. In Vote to kick mode players are booted from the game when they lose three pieces of their characters 8 piece armor set to other players. Lewt Ninja is a standalone game that includes 189 cards …everything that 2-5 players need for endless hours of treasure stealing, back stabbing fun!

 

Fantasy Flight Games Announce Heavy Crossbowmen for Runewars

May 11th, 2017

Paragons of disciplined training and wielders of some of the most sophisticated military weaponry available, the heavy crossbowmen of the Daqan Lords represent one of the greatest defensive forces in Terrinoth. Armed with specially designed bulwark shields and heavy crossbows, these warriors can withstand even the fiercest hail of enemy fire while unleashing their own torrent of death. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Heavy Crossbowmen Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game!

Proficiency with the crossbow is not enough to qualify for a heavy crossbow unit, as only the largest and most physically imposing men and women have the great strength and stamina required to reload the crossbows and wield the thick wood and iron shields that complete these warriors’ arsenal. These bulwark shields are designed to withstand vicious attacks from axe and arrow alike while still allowing a large crossbow to rest securely on its edge, mitigating any compromise to accuracy. These shields were designed to provide the protection an archer shooting from a tower’s bulwark would have, while allowing for mobility on the field.

Whether motivated by duty or coin, Heavy Crossbowmen are integral to defending the Land of Steel from the forces of darkness at its borders.

But everything is about to change for the Ghiscari, and lead your faction on a new path with Guarding the Realm.
