@Michael Shinall - Question: Are the "Bastard's Girls" unit able to use attachments, also are the mounted units able to use any of the current attachments or do they require attachments that are also mounted?
The head-only sigil was from the HBO series and is incorrect... they did it mainly to differentiate the starks from the lannisters (both with heraldic predators) and it drove me crazy
Can't the Stark dice use the symbol of the Stark House, the head of the Direwolf and not a whole-body.... wolf, if that is a wolf at all?
@Daniel Kickstarter is known for not being very user-friendly. They rely on third party pledge managers, which makes things a little muddied. But you get used to it.
@Aleksander Hewitt, thanks thats interesting that it doesn't have such a feature already.
Love the stretch goals, but I'm having some problems with the Stark dice, the wolf doesn't look much like a wolf..
@Daniel A little KS Pro-tip, keep track of the add ons you want so it makes your pledge easier. Write them down somewhere or keep a Google Sheet so when you wonder why you still have a $10 credit, you will remember. There have been a few campaigns where I forgot that I added something (or multiples of something) and had to figure out what I wanted in the first place.
@Zsuth The card has two different types of attack. Depending on how many ranks you have, you will roll that amount of dice. When you have full rank you will use the green ranged attack or the green mellee attack depending on if you are engaged with a unit or not. When you lose a rank of hounds. You will use the yellow ranged or yellow mellee, depending on the situation. Finally when you lose two ranks, you will ONLY be able to do ranged attacks. Run away and hope that the enemy doesn't crush you. If you make it, you can use this as a support unit to make enemies vulnerable. You may be able to bring ranks back and turn it into a melee unit as well.
Hope that helps.
Might be a dumb question, but if the hounds are short range, and the bowmen are long range, how does that work on the table if they share a tray?
@Daniel, correct. During the campaign you will add the funds to your pledge. Post campaign, during the pledge manager, you will select the add ons that you want.
For instance, if you want one of each of the dice packs, at $20 to your pledge. It should now total $170. When the PM comes around, you will have that $20 as credit to choose whatever you'd like.
@CMON any chance of seeing minis for the cannon video games main characters Mors with hound and Alester?
@eric right, I mean it says go edit your pledge. When I click it has nothing but adding value.
@Bert The average roll is going to be 8 dice. There may be instances that you roll more than 10, but that is rare. I think there was a demo on YouTube that may have hit 11 or 12 dice rolls. Your enemy would have to really have screwed up to face that kind of attack. :)
@Daniel Lewis, bottom of the update
I don't see the option for the dice ? am I missing something?
This KS is starting to heat up! Love the unit!
how many dice do you use in a large game?
These dogs look like fun to play with. I like that their efficiency doesn't really decline, but that the hounds have to die first. With the free Charge after a hunting bow attack, they look like vicious glass cannons.
Now we are talking
@David Eugene Durrett Jr.
Rulebook states that Mercenary forces can go with any faction.
Love this unit, very thematic. Question regarding mercs, though: Will any house in the future be able to hire any mercs? Or will different mercs only be available to specific houses? Would the Boltons only work for the Starks or the Lannisters moving forwward?
The Stark dice need a little more work to distinguish it as a wolf. At quick glance they appear too similar to lions. Perhaps emphasizing the tail would help some?
@Burkhard. That is correct. Enough models to fill an infantry tray.
Love the dice and the traditional medieval pips that go with that era, well thought out.
Just to make sure I get this right... at 735K it is a total (which includes the previous two stretchgoals) of four pack masters and eight dogs, right?
Alright, I'm in.
This is pretty rad.
