The Shadespire News and Rumour Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, there is some objective cards stating "if your warband"; does it means your models or you model + the ploys you play?

For example: Can Draw the Gaze of Khorne be scored thanks to Rebound, Last Blow etc?

 

Edit: oops i posted in the wrong thread. sorry.

- "your warband" I'd say yes.

- If it said "an attack action" definitely not.

- "one of your fighters" I'd be on the fence

I would t end to say no, that a warband includes its fighters and not the ploys :

Warband: Each player plays with a warband, made of a specific set of fighters identified by a unique symbol on their fighter cards. Each warband has access to unique objective and power cards.

A Warband is "made of a specific set of fighters." 

A Warband "has access to unique objective and power cards."

I’m surpized this hasn’t been brought up in these forums yet. This image came from GWs recent convention. No explanation given about this group. But looking at the sculpted based & the groups composition, I think these guys may be a warband for the next underworlds game.

A lot of the new models have sculpted bases though. 
I have a really hard time believing these should be a warband as they are literally the same model in different poses. That is too rank and file even for Shadespire.

But I have no problem believing the new warband will be in this style.

If these actually turn out to be the warband, I'll say GW really needs to hire some board game designers.
Let's not forget these are playing pieces with individual abilities. Making them so similar would be insane.

I like them. The roses are a nice touch.

Where'd you get the image from?

New Banshee models maybe?

I really doubt that's the new warband. All of the fighters have had easily distinguishing features and those lack them.

I'm not convinced they're the new warband either, none of them really fit the thing on the new card:

I do like their pitch that you could paint a second warband set as the "inspired" version of those figures to swap out when they inspire but I'm not interested. 

A "neutral card pack" would be very tempting just so I could deckbuild/play more with my son at home.

So the price for the figures alone is $25  vs $30.  What a deal!

Honestly, the $30 price point is worth it to start with, so yes, getting them at $25 is a deal.

Of course it's a deal as it's literally cheaper. But does it make any real difference? It just feels like a product that doesn't need to exist. If I was GW I would just put the little pamphlet with the AoS rules in the Shadespire box and just make it a single cross-product. I think it's a bad idea to confuse customers with two such similar products. Do it like Chaos. The same box of demons can be used for either/both AoS or 40k.

I think the ones without cards should have been at least 33% cheaper though, I was hoping to pick up a bunch just to convert, but I may just stick with the ones with cards and resell the cards. I think a better product would have been all the neutral cards packed together for 20 euro, so people that do not own all warbands can still have all cards.

New card-only expansion. Maybe this opens the doors for future releases of existing packs as standalones?

I don't like Crippling Doubt. Ploys that weaken attacks are one thing, but one that only applies to leaders is too situational for me. 

Otherwise cautiously excited. New cards are potentially a good thing.

Interesting they decided to make this particular focus on leaders.
I just hope they took this opportunity to tweak balance overall.

So it looks like the models on sculpted bases we saw at Warhammer Fest weren't for Shadespire at all - they're add-ons to the AOS 2.0 box set.

I thought as much bit have you seen some confirmation? I'm itching to see new nighthaunt AND new shadespire warbands
