Today we’ve got a bunch of game updates, which provide much needed quality of life improvements. I think that these weekly army updates have actually been quite good for the games, so I am considering making these a regular staple where we review a different army every week. In the future we might make a poll about that, so keep your eyes peeled!
Let’s get to it!
Kingdom of Angels Update
Today we’ve updated the Kingdom of Angels army list to lean more into the whole angelic aspect of the army. We’ve added a new Angel Priestess that is an ok wizard, but with strong anti-wizard ability. We’ve also added some new Frozen Angels that are quite defensive, with Phalanx and the ability to debuff enemy melee units. Finally we’ve added the Burning Angels which are more aggressive, with the ability to burn enemies they fly over.
Ballistic Master Update
We’ve decided to review and update the Ballistic Master rules for the Dwarves, Halflings and Humans armies, giving them a much needed boost. The range was extended from 3″ to 6″ so that the hero isn’t stuck in place as much, and you now have the option between either buffing the hit rolls of artillery by +2, or to reposition artillery by up to 6″, giving you a big tactical advantage for taking a Ballistic Master hero.
Arena Games Updates
This week we’ve also updated the rules for our arena games, further streamlining and consolidating the rules to reduce the amount of confusion and to make them more “future proof”. The changes also provide a re-balancing to power actions, giving them a much needed buff (and saving you some glory points to spend later).
Here’s the full changes:
- Power Actions are now separate actions and give +1 die to hit and damage rolls
- Guard Actions now cost 2 fatigue and can’t be disrupted by pushing anymore
- Special Effects have been re-named to Critical Effects
- Re-worked Command, Furious and Relentless
- Vampiric Undead strategies and Kingdom of Angels stats have been tweaked
Full Rulebook Updates
With everyone being stuck at home due to the pandemic, we’ve had more and more requests from people asking how they can play the games on smaller surfaces in their homes. So in order to help all those players out, we’ve added the Kitchen Table Games rules to the Full Rulebooks for GF, AoF and AoF:R, which provide you with everything you need to play on surfaces as small as 2’x3′ (note that these rules are very similar to what you already have in the Full Rulebooks for GF:F and AoF:S).
