A Flayed Man Has No Secrets

Valar Dohaeris, bannermen!

We've just hit the $955k mark, and unlocked the Stark Longbowmen for all backers! Well done!

 

Reaching such a mark quickly was no doubt aided by our most recent offering of the Tully Sworn Shields!

You can read more about the Tully Sworn Shields in our last update!

One In A Million

As for what's next...

Well, we've shown their art piece before, but now, they're truly here!

If we reach the amazing mark if $1,000,000 we'll unlock the full unit of the Bolton Flayed Men, including 4 miniatures, their unit card and their Cavalry Movement Tray!

When we unlock this Stretch Goal, backers will already be able to field an army of Mercenaries with the same variety of Units as what’s contained in the Starter Set for the Starks and Lannisters!

Gameplay

*Please note that all cards are subject to change before final release.

 

Boasting the heaviest Cavalry currently available, the Flayed Men of House Bolton are a true terror on the Battlefield.

Unlike most other mounted knights, who favor devastating charges, the Flayed Men have no issue wading into a prolonged melee. While they are certainly devastating on the charge, gaining both Critical Hit and causing the enemy to become Panicked, their Resilience of 3 means they can shrug off all but the most dedicated of assaults. Of course, you're going to have to pay for such power, and the Flayed Men come in at a staggering nine points, but this is a small price to pay in the long run for such devastation!

Please note that the Estimated Retail Price for Unit boxes is $35.

      @Nicholas @Gavin, Thank you for the help. Upping my pledge yet again.

    2. Gavin Meakings on August 10

      Edit: I just saw that Boltons Girls are 7 rather than 6 points. So remove one of the Dreadfort Captains from the list, you may want to switch Ramsey over to that unit as an attachment.

    3. Gavin Meakings on August 10

      @Amanda.
      You already have -
      The Bastards Girls - 6 points
      Bolton Flayed Men - 9 points
      Ramsey Snow (General) - Free
      Roose Bolton (Non-combat unit) - 3 points
      .
      I would then pick up 2 packs of Bolton Cutthroats (5 points per unit) and they will also come with 4 Dreadfort captains (1 point)
      .
      I would then run this army -
      .
      The Bastards Girls with Ramsey Bolton (commander) - 6 points
      Bolton Cutthroats with Dreadfort Captain - 6 points
      Bolton Cutthroats with Dreadfort Captain - 6 points
      Bolton Flayed Men - 9 points
      Roose Bolton (Non-combat unit) - 3 points
      .
      This comes to an even 30 points. You can do this for cheaper by buying 1 extra unit of Flayed Men rather than the two units of Cutthroats but I can't see that force working so well.

      I do like that the flags are molded with the design on them. I can paint minis, but not freehand very well at all. Decals work ok, but I like this better.

      @Amanda Gilchrist: Guessing 1-2? Assuming the 1000K gets unlocked, you'll have a 9pt cavalry and the archer/dogs are ... 7ish? Maybe 5 points for the 2 Bolton characters (one as general, one as NCU).

      If I want to play a 30pt game with the Mercenaries, how many "optional buys" would be required? I think having three factions for around $210 is a way better deal than two for $150.

      Stop whining people and enjoy the campaign! It is amazing how many "issues" people may find - horses' legs, nonfunctional flails, left handed riders...

    10. David Smith on August 10

      Have no fears about quality Olivier Carrère if they are the same as Wrath of Kings quality. Besides you would be only getting a fraction of the number of units if they were to be hard plastic kits.

    11. Cameron Haggett on August 9

      Mind blowing cool!

      I'm in the 'these look amazing' camp on this one. Great stuff.

    14. Mr. Boy on August 9

      I can't believe the placement of the third leg of the second horse. Are you kidding me CMON?! Were a horse actually galloping in that position the leg would be slightly more curled. Some source material that should help you fix this problem: https://www.nonsensepoopbutt.com/horse_legs

      Still no longbows for the "long"bowmen?

      @robert. No this unit will be free with core box

    18. Asha Greyjoy on August 9

      And vice versa.

    19. Asha Greyjoy on August 9

      If you have a rider on your left and you want to be swinging a flail, you cannot do so on that very side. Also, this looks better on the movement tray.

    20. Celestial Lucid Dream on August 9

      @Olivier

      Hopefully before they launch the game. They'll do some revamping of their other models to bring them up to standards of the Bolton Cavalry (while still being in line of GRRM's vision of course).

    21. Olivier Carrère on August 9

      They are the best, by far, 3D renders we've seen. The lines are fairly dynamic and there is interesting detail work going on.

      I really wish all models matched that quality!

      I also really wish the models would not be molded in PVC, but rather higher quality plastics so that the actual minis match those renders. (and removing seam lines wouldn't be nearly impossible!)

      As lovely as they are, can they at least have functional flails? Those chains are going to get tangled with the 'cap' of the handle when swung. Flail chains should be connected to a ring that is in-line with the handle, so that when you swing it, the chain goes around the ring to increase momentum.

      Some images. (I make no claims to the authenticity of these weapons, just that the ring where the chain connects to the handle would be functional).

      Nice enough figures and unit, but since when do the Boltons have the heaviest cavalry in Westeros?

    24. Robert Szczelina on August 9

      I presume the Flayed Men will be an add-on (for 30$?) and not included the core box?

    25. Sandor Clegane on August 9

      @David

      All the best knights are left-handed (Jaime... hehe)

    26. Sandor Clegane on August 9

      The house of Bolton is quite possibly the strongest in the game so far! Who would have seen that!

      I mean their cavalry and ranged units are the best two units in the game.

      I like that... a nice twist on the "mercs are weak filler" that most games tend to rely on.

      So badass. With these a Bolton Merc force looks like a viable option in battle

    28. Klobouk on August 9

      They are great but I kinda hoped for a halfway stretchgoal of plastic tokens

    29. David Smith on August 9

      They look awesome but please tell me you have reversed a couple of images and half are not left handed.

      As much as I was hoping to see Mercenaries other than the nefarious Boltons, I must admit those guys are absolutely terrifying (and excellent) looking!

      @CMon: What is the estimate for increased shipping costs for a unit box addon?

      OMG... need to raise more $$.. what to sell... don't need a car right?
