Hammersmith Unlocked!

Hammersmith, aka Magnus Torrison, is a lieutenant for the LEGION Ministry of Pride. He is a brilliant inventor and weapons maker that sold his designs to the highest bidders world wide. Allegiance or ideology did not matter - only his passion to create!  
Dr. Babylon kidnapped the Swedish scientist to force him to work for LEGION. But coercion was unnecessary, since Torrison was eager to join the Ministry of Pride. Now known as Hammersmith, he is devising monstrosities to unleash against MAYHEM!  

This is a full LEGION expansion that includes the Hammersmith miniature, character board, and custom Gadget cards and Upgrade tiles that can make him even more powerful! Combined with his Mayhem ability upgrades, he adds an entirely new and exciting story line to the Agents of Mayhem game! 

Franchise Force Gadgets and Upgrades Unlocked!

To help battle Hammersmith, the Franchise Force has unlocked even more Gadgets and Ability upgrades! Each character in the Franchise Force - Fortune, Hollywood, and Hardtack - will receive their own custom expansion set of three more Gadgets and 8 more Upgrades. This will give players so many more hard choices on how to spend their few resources to expand their characters. Do you give Hardtack a new weapon's upgrade or increase Fortune's attack ability?! 
Each character now has 9 Gadgets to discover and 16 different Upgrades to increase their abilities in different ways. But you can't have everything - Whatcha gonna do?  

Legion Golem Unlocked!

The Golem is formed and directly controlled by Dr Babylon. This is a terrifying creature of earth and rock that simultaneously attacks all enemies in its area of effect by hurtling giant boulders. Its strength is so great, it can tear down and destroy buildings that stand in its way. 

This stretch goal unlocked the giant 72mm miniature pictured above! 

Golum Elite Unit Expansion Unlocked!

Now the Golum is even more terrifying and powerful with its own Elite Unit Board. The LEGION players can modify and build the Golum into an even more devastating monster! Or is it an earthen power of goodness? - hmmm... that just depends on if you are on the giving or receiving side of the boulders! 

We hope you enjoy these added gaming components that are now included with your pledge. We wish you a happy and productive weekend! 

From the Apollo Games and Academy Games teams.

      @Frank - I reffed quite a few soccer games today, so am just now seeing your message. It may have been fixed already, since I see nothing wrong. :)
      Please let me know if you still see it.
      Thanks, Uwe

      @TomChick - We will be posting an UpDate tomorrow outlining all of Fortune's Gadgets to show how a player can equip her as the story progresses. We then will also go through her upgrades early next week. :)

      Very nice! You guys have done a great job communicating the basics of gameplay, but I'd love to see/hear/read more about what you're doing to distinguish the characters with gadgets, upgrades, and mayhem cards. Sounds like there's a lot of gameplay particulars in there and I'd love to know some specifics.
