PLEASE NOTE!!! You probably noticed this box is a bit higher in price than our other expansions- That is due to the raw size difference between the humans of Earth and the Orcs of Urth!

Orcs, Trolls, and Hobgoblins are juuuust a bit bigger than your average human.

The Blutrausch Legion hates you... But it's nothing personal, it's just in their nature! With a focus on Berserker play-style, successfully using the Blutrausch Legion is living on the edge, knowing that if you're close to death that your Heroes will fight all the harder for it!

Highbrow brings strategy to the Blurausch Legion, knowing how to manipulate his forces to get the most out of them. Each of his skills has a focus on the current health of either himself or his allies- if they're healed up and calm, he can make them Hit better, if they're damaged, he'll goad them into a berserker rage!

Chumbucket may or may not eat people... Ok, so there is no "maybe"- Chumbucket eats people. But that's not so bad a thing, right! I mean... It's not cannibalism, since he's an Orc, and they're human/atlantian/ghost... Sure, he still eats Orc and Troll, but that's not related... Kinda...

Anyway... Chumbucket has a focus on healing and giving semi-random buffs to his allies, all the while also being a monster himself in melee. If you're looking for an aggressive Quartermaster, then Chumbucket is for you!

Cannonface excels at long range damage (he is a Gunner after all), but also carries the unique caveat that his attacks really need proper positioning  to be completely effective: Grapeshot for up close, Solid Shot for far away.

Making use of his AIM!!! passive, he can also enhance both attacks in a number of ways. Make use of tactical positioning and movement abilities and Cannonface can absolutely wreck enemy Objectives and Heroes!

Pineapple is a Trophy Hunter- his favorite is his Pineapple, obviously (though the Wheel from the Flying Dutchorc is a close second). Pineapple gets more aggressive the more Trophies he has, which is represented by Victory Points, so late game, when you're pushing for the win, Pineapple can be an absolute beast.

In the meantime, however, he can go on various "game hunts", gaining select benefits from KO'ing Heroes or Bosuns- the most powerful of which is hiw ability to grant you an additional Victory Point for taking out those pesky Big Time Heroes!

Blubber Clubber is a big Troll- no, not the kind on the internet, the kind that clubs things to death, hence his name.

His Basic Attack is fairly common for Brutes, gaining additional dice for the damage on him, but his uniqueness comes from his Thump!!! skill, which instantly KO's all Deckhands/Bosuns on a zone and deals hefty damage to Heroes- worse still, if he manages to hit an unguarded Objective he will deal enough damage to outright destroy it!

Finally, being a Troll, he also has massive Regeneration powers, being able to heal himself at the start of each of his activations, without so much as even spending an action (of course, it still costs Coin)!

Ridgeback is a daredevil through and through- his Passive allows him to Rig easier, and even rewards you for making the Big Plays. Combine this with the impressive mobility that his Tumbling Assault basic attack brings (allowing him to potentially rig even more!) and you have a nasty fighter. 

On top of all this, however, he also has his Lightning Strikes attack, which has the potential to throw up to nine dice at a target- with each hit causing Silence and Stun!

Finally we have the Crew, specifically their unique Bosun Upgrade. This one is utilitarian to a fault- nothing flashy here, just an extra 2 dice for each of your Bosuns- not that that is any less scary than the others! With the potential to drop eight extra dice into a zone (by deploying 2 bosuns) you can surely shift the tide of any battle!

TIDE CARDS

The Blutrausch Legion Tide Cards have a keen focus on buffering your Crew depending on how much damage they have suffered, as well as making sure that, if they are taken out of the fight, they never stay down for long!

Join the march to war with the Blutrausch legion today!

      @CMON_Michael Shinall

      Ah ok, it makes sense then, forgot you could only make the solidshot once otherwise.
      Thanks

    3. Pierre on

      @CMoN_Michael: please at least tell us when we'll have some update on the various possible layouts with this faction

    4. LamarrsAnomaly on

      Looks like a great expansion. Just need to address the Captain Highbrow "management" typo on the character ID card.

    5. Michael Shinall Collaborator on

      @General
      Also noting Ridgeback's Lv. 2 Tumbling Assault should hit on a 3+, not 4+ as it shows.

    6. Michael Shinall Collaborator on

      @Parlik
      Solid Shot is not a Basic Attack, meaning you can only use it once per activation. So if you want the potential to deal 8 damage with it, you'll need to Aim(+1 Die).

    7. Tristan Whitley on

      @Parlik I think it's the whole Risk/Reward... you could get 2 dice that do 3/4 damage :-)

      If I read the aim text on cannonface correctly, he can spend one of his remaining actions (if he have any) on getting +1 die or reroll misses?
      If this is the case why would I ever want to pick +1 die? Seems at least as good or in most cases better to spend that action on getting a full attack.

      and I thought I was going to have to make custom orcs for this game. This is sweet. Also, on to the question that I got from hearing that in Rum and bones one the backers got some kind of custom template to make their own heroes, any chance that will return in this kickstarter?

      This is what I was hoping to get from this campaign. More fantasy and less plain human crews.

    12. Charlie Arnold on

      I know when it says roll a dice it means a D6 (and im not saying it badly worded) but I will have to make the joke where I activate that ability, pull out the D30 from Formula D pre placed in my pocket and roll that for potentially 30 extra dice :P

      I absolutely hate orcs, hate them in the GW universe and in other games as well. I would never even consider buying them to paint. However these guys... even an avid orc hater has to say these guys beat the snot out of anything else we've seen and i cant wait to get the green paint onto these bad boys!

      I just don't know how I feel about these guys. Will have to think it over hard this time.

      Is The Blutrausch Legion compatible with the first edition Rum & Bones or there is the core box from R&B: Second Tide needed?

    17. Lars on

      OMG Blutrausch Orcs! I'm insanely excited about this one. Well done.

      Morten Brandt Jensen on

      Well done CMoN, I am convinced by the piratey orcs.

      Is Blubber Clubber an ogre or a troll? He is a big troll, he can regenerate and he is an ogre-blood? I get confused.

      Orcs? I have enough of them in other games. Although it looks great, it's pricey and...orcs. I'll pass on this one.

      This expansion does give the mercs another boat and tide deck option which is always a plus.

      Was Ridgeback's to-hit number on Tumbling Assault meant to increase from 3+ at lvl 1 to 4+ at lvl 2?

      Pineapple's basic attack Trophy Hunting has interesting scaling. Here's my really basic thinking, converting average # of re-rolls on misses to an expected number of additional dice:
      Lvl 1 dice rolled at increasing VP: 3, 3, 3, 5, 5.0, 5.0, 7, 7.
      Lvl 2 dice rolled at increasing VP: 3, 3, 5, 5, 6.7, 6.7, 8, 8.

      There's an odd case at 3 VP where the lvl 1 attack can get five hits while the upgraded lvl 2 attack can only get four hits, same story at 6 and 7 VP. The level 1 actually seems good enough to invest in the two other attacks first before upgrading the basic attack.

      Once again, not an Orc pirate fan, and with the price increase its an easy no for me. Crocodile crew or even lizards I would get, but not orcs.

      Very well crafted, and I even like the one with the big club, but not my thing... However that new Croc SG is just truly awesome! So much I am happy for in this campaign and the artwork and painting is stunning. Watched full game play videos and I am super excited to play them now! Wow!

      Really hoping for a third bundle with ship (crew) as I am skipping this one, that way I can still have 4 full crews :D

      So I've picked up all the add-ons so far. But seriously ... if this keeps up I won't be able to afford it and will just have to cancel my pledge. Not a threat ... just the add-ons are getting seriously expensive. I like the game a lot but this is killing the pocketbook.

      Looks like they meant Blutrausch, but they forgot the s in the update text. Check the box.

    29. Pierre on

      @CMoN: what is the layout of those ships against the others (1 ship: deep lords, 2 ships: marea and 3: mazu)?

      Also: still no info on the marea vs brise? Don't seem to be able to get an answer on that one:/

      wow, can not wait for this... loved the first one, this campaign is looking even better

      So Blutrauch=Bloodsmoke or Blutrausch=Bloodlust?

      Is there any rules in the work for 1v1v1 factions?
