Physical Battle Cards

Post by Bill Hupp » Thu Mar 26, 2020 3:22 am

Meshwesh "This is an event card, usable once only; flip the card upside down to mark that it is no longer available for use in the current battle."

The implication is that these are actual cards as is the cool example in the rule book. Any plans to make those available in card form on line? Or is making a physical card up to the army owner?

I noticed the battle cards are marked DRAFT.

Thanks.

I think there are 22 total. Maybe 24, I forget now. Some are quite rare; some are very common. Pack Trains and Herds is common -- there might be 200 or more lists with that option on how camps work. Separated Valets is very rare -- only appears once.

Long-term? Yes. It's going to take six months or more for the artist to finish the artwork, we estimate.

That's right. Who are the beta-testers? YOU ARE. We're using you as our test guinea pigs; if any changes are necessary we will be making those decisions in 6-12 months (maybe more with covid19).
