Unit Cards, Unit Cards, Unit Cards!

Happy Friday Knights,

We have a surprise update today with a whole bunch of unit cards to show you!

These cards cover all of the units in the 2nd Edition Rulebook. We are sending them off to print next week, and wanted to give all of you an opportunity to give them a good once over before we do.

If you notice anything out of place let us know in the comments to this update (NOT the general comments).

These are going to print early next week so any comments on them need to be to us by Monday.

We have been having a blast as we have continued to playtest and refine the units. We can't wait for you to be able to take these profiles out for a spin in your own games!

      Yes, the size of most models was brought down on purpose. We used the same scale for models as we do for terrain (1 inch of height equals 1 unit of size). Most Noh models were roughly 2" tall (most humans are roughly 1.5-1.75 inches tall) so while both are size 2, Noh are physically bigger in terms of their models. We were having issues with models seeing over terrain in terms of the rules that the model clearly couldn't physically see over.

      Whoa, just noticed. All Noh are smaller.
      Are berserkers and co really the same size as a Swordsworn and co?
      Kasaro To and Dahon are smaller too.

      Quill doesn't have cypher in abilities

      A few clarifications:

      The Power 1 on Rook's press affects the target of the action.

      When an ability allows you to take a second action, you have to pay for the second action as normal (this is called out in the book to avoid confusion).

      Units that could consist of multiple species simply don't have a trait. For example, scribes could be tonnerians or humans or chee, so they don't have a trait for species.

      Thank you for the feedback, everyone! It is most appreciated and we will see that it makes it in there.

      Final edits will be applied at 1pm MST (about 75 minutes from now) so any edits suggested after then won't make it in. Speak now or forever hold your peace.

      Thank you all again! This is an amazing community and we couldn't do it without you.

      The spacing on many of the cards seem a tad short, making it look like 2 words are one. I will mention the more serious offenders to this wanna be writer as well as any other mistakes.
      Catalogue: Power Surge: Lots of spaces skipped.
      Delphyn: Chatterbox: Should be a space between defense actions.
      Lost in the Woods: Should be a space between The attack.
      Captain Harker: Calamity Insight: Space between Friendly units.
      Kenobo: Gomandi's Knowledge: Space between "action does" and under the press "two cards".
      Jenner The Seeker: Enfilade: Press: Spaces between "move up to".
      Esmee: Go, Go, Go!: Press: Space between within 5".
      Pacer: Ability: Space between this unit's LOS.
      Castellan: Siege Breaker: Press: Space between LOS to.
      Austrican The Ogre: Ability: Space between "Tactical Awareness" and "another friendly".
      Navaree Hauer: Ability: Space between another friendly.
      Francis Mallory: Outmaneuver: Press: Plenty of spacing issues.
      Swordsworn Command: Into Hell Itself: Needs a space for the title.
      Slaved Cypher: Abilities: Esper Slave: spacing issues.
      One Shot: Concentrated Fire: Spacing issues.
      Beastmaster: Abilities: Spacing issues.
      Kasara To: Abilities: Spacing Issues

      And that is all that I have. The upgrade cards and cadre ability for questing and relic knights will make this a very interesting game.

      Folks have pointed out stuff already. Here's what I have questions on in addition.

      Doctrine:
      Scribes – Are they supposed to have the Human and Tonerrian trait?

      Star Nebula Corsairs:
      Blowhards - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Breachers - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Scallywags - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Cerci Speed Circuit:
      Faust’s Devils - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Hell’s Belles - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Pit Crew – Squad Size is 2(6) but the card only has 4 health tracks, should there be 6 health tracks or should the Squad Size be 2(4)? Are they supposed to have the Human trait?

      Shattered Sword:
      Aspirant - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Francis Mallory – Outmaneuver Press, is it intended to move one friendly unit or multiple? If only one please rephrase to “move ONE other friendly unit…”. If multiple please rephrase as “move ONE or MORE other friendly units”.
      Paragons - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Purifiers - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Swordsworn - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Swordsworn Command- Banner of Stoicism, is it supposed to mean friendly Swordsworn MODELS or UNITS in 6”? Please specify one or the other. Same question applies to Banner of Wrath. Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Star Lancer Upgrade – Advanced Esper Cycler, is it supposed to be 1 point or a 2 point upgrade? Please delete the version that is not final cost.

      Black Diamond:
      Black Dragons - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      Diamond Corps - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?
      M8-Blitz Auto-Tank – Chee Networking, is it supposed to mean friendly Chee, Cyborgs, Mecha, and Robotics MODELS or UNITS in 3”? Please specify one or the other.

      Noh Empire:
      Seems good :B

      Radiant:
      Candy – Sugar Fueled, would reword as “Once for each time you would place down a command token, you may discard a card to place a power token on one friendly unit before the command token is placed.” This is to clear up that the cadre ability is only supposed to happen once per command token assignment to one unit before the token is placed.
      Enforcers - Are they supposed to have the Human trait?

      Void:
      Seems good :B

      Question on extra actions as a whole, when a card says you can “take this action…” “perform this action…” etc. You still have to pay for the cost of the additional action, correct? For example, Ekhis’s Pocket Monster you pay 2 creation, press for 2 entropy, then you have to pay 2 essence to perform What Big Teeth, correct?

      Keep up the good work guys, thanks!

      Sebastian Cross has no way to gain a Power token, it looks like he should work with Rook to gain it, but Rook’s support action isn’t clear that both units get the Power token.

      Star Lancer Upgrade is in there 2x

      Scribes abilities suggest they are Chee, but they don’t have the Chee trait.

      It seems odd that Vyper works better with Harbonath than with Suspect 7, if you take her Upgrade.

      Love the new card art, and would really like to see models that line up with that art. (Scallywags and Savra Scouts in particular.)

      Overall, just eyeballing, the cards look good. I see plenty of interesting combos and some good shifts in design for units and Cadre abilities.

      @Treville: Those are some great edits! Thank you! We are headed out of the office for now, but on Monday we will apply these, along with any other edits you find.

      I also want to note that the Paragons upgrade was accidentally left off and a second Star Lancer upgrade was included. And the Gallant art is not final. We are aware of these issues.

      Any editing is much appreciated! Thank you all for your input, we couldn't do it without you! I hope you enjoy these units and you have a fantastic weekend.

      Shattered Sword, Quill (cypher) does not have the Cypher ability

      after all this time you still haven't shown the new standard novitiates from doctrine

    11. Treville2001 on

      Faust's Devils back of card has Asger Faust title

    12. Treville2001 on

      Nevermind. Found them.

    13. Treville2001 on

      Question about Star Nebular Corsairs Breachers. Sieze Ground action press states "One friendly Scallywags unit within Los..." Who are Scallywags?

    14. Kineticmedic on

      I’ve heard August for shipping date and wanted to chime in that I like the new character art and overall look of the cards so far :)

    15. Soda Pop Miniatures 7-time creator on

      @blake wheeler: not really sure what you mean?

      @Paint Riot Studio: these are all the cards in the second edition book, not necessarily all the cards in the kickstarter.

      @Treville2001: Thanks! Fixed.

      Can we get more information about the "pre-glued" scenery? We all have the modeling skills to handle resin minis. I can't see "pre-glued" scenery being as strong as if I glued it myself.

      +1 for production timeline.

    17. Treville2001 on

      Rhouss Fixer upgrade card has a typo. Says "Upgrad" instead of "Upgrade"

      Black dragons looks out of place that's why I ask

    20. Missing avatar

      blake wheeler on

      Should the unit card and text on the back be top to bottom?
      ie. Maire-claude on top, abilities/attacks on bottom? Or Vice versa

      So are we going to be getting any news any time soon about when we can expect our orders to actually ship?
