FFG has announced Heroes of Terrinoth for the third quarter of 2018.
Heroes of Terrinoth is a cooperative card game of questing and adventure that invites you and up to three allies to take on the role of unique heroes, choosing from twelve distinct and powerful heroes, split between four archetypes—healer, warrior, mage, and scout. These archetypes are further diversified into different classes that your heroes can pursue as your power grows. Regardless of which class you embrace, you and your friends must combine your powers, leaning on one another’s strengths to survive your journeys and defeat the enemies who stand against you. Over the course of eight thrilling quests, you will face villainous foes, battle deadly creatures, and save the realm!
The game is based on Warhammer Quest, a game FFG can’t any longer sell because they have lost the Warhammer licence last year.
The gameplay is based on the Warhammer Quest design, with tweaks to the system. Cards allow players to attack, aid, explore or rest, with dice rolls modifying the actions to determine the level of success. A peril phase triggers potential events in the world as the party moves between locations – if the peril tracker reaches the end of the track, a final encounter occurs against the scenario’s toughest boss.
Today the Empire gets an addition to their already impressive forces: The Snowtroopers join the fight!
No matter how dangerous the freezing temperatures on a planet, you’ll find that your Snowtroopers are equipped to handle the killing cold with ease.
Within the Snowtroopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion, you’ll find seven unpainted Snowtrooper miniatures, inviting you to field these troopers as a single unit and combat the Rebellion in even the most hostile and adverse environments. Alongside these Snowtroopers, you’ll find an assortment of upgrade cards, inviting you to kit out your Snowtroopers for whatever you expect to face on the field of battle.
Today was the release day for Sanctum of Twilight, the latest expansion for Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition.
Sanctum of Twilight is an expansion for Mansions of Madness Second Edition that unites two new investigators against the Order of the Silver Twilight in two thrilling scenarios. With new spells, items, mechanics, and a new monster, this expansion immerses players in the Arkham Files universe as they confront the dangers threatening Arkham from within.
In addition, we have received a delivery with two new games and five restocks.
Also coming this week, but not online yet are Mystic Vale: Conclave, Legendary Creatures, Sunset Over Water and the reprints of the Memoir’ 44 expansions Winter Wars and Eastern Front. They should go online late afternoon/early evening.
But what got me excited is that we finally managed to stock Frostgrave (Fantasy Skirmish) and Gaslands (Mad Max style car battles/races), two wargame rulesets from Osprey Games. Both games don’t need massive amounts of miniatures or terrain or other things to play them. If you have some Hotwheel or Matchbox cars, some D6 dice and a large enough table you have everything you need to play Gaslands. And Frostgrave is perfect if you have a Fantasy board game with miniatures like Descent, the D&D games of Zombicide: Black Plague. With the figures from these games, 2x D20, a ruler to measure movements and playing area of 3′ x 3′ you have everything to try out this game and have a blast.
Our Easter Break is over, yesterday was our first day back at the office. All the new orders that came in during our break have been processed and shipped and all deliveries have been unpacked and the stock added to the website.
Today is release day for Star Wars: Legion, the new miniature game from FFG. If Star Wars: Legion is your first adventure into the world of miniature games, it can be daunting at first.
This is why FFG is making an effort to help you when you are trying to get ready for your first game. They have posted a painting guide on their website:
There are few spectacles in tabletop gaming as awe-inspiring as a miniatures game full of nicely painted miniatures and well-made terrain. To the unexperienced, miniatures painting can be seen as a craft reserved for the talented or particularly dexterous… but it’s not! This article and the following one are intended to give you a solid overview of miniature painting and dispel the misconception that painting your Star Wars™: Legion miniatures is out of your reach.
But this is not all. There is also a series of four videos from Watch it Played starting with how to assemble the miniatures:
The other videos are about army building, setting up to play and how to play.
