I know. I know. I know. The game’s not even out there yet. But Fantasy Flight Games isn’t going to just have the starter box and nothing else out there to entice you to play Runewars. They’ve announced four expansion boxes that you’ll be able to pick up.

From the announcement:

Waiqar’s dark forces have crossed into Terrinoth, and the first battles of the next great war will soon be fought among the mountain passes, fertile plains, and verdant forests of the realm. As both sides jockey for position, they send out calls for reinforcements to join them on the front lines…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce four new expansion packs for Runewars Miniatures Game :

Oathsworn Cavalry Unit Expansion
Daqan Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion
Reanimate Archers Unit Expansion
Waiqar Infantry Command Unit Upgrade Expansion

As your army grows, each of these expansions gives you a different way to grow the forces of the Daqan Lords or Waiqar the Undying. The two unit expansions contain enough figures to field a unit of Oathsworn Cavalry or Reanimate Archers, identical to the units in the Runewars Core Set, but offering new upgrade cards and allowing you to field larger armies on the battlefield. Then, you can increase your command over the forces of Terrinoth or the undead with two unit upgrade expansions. Each unit upgrade expansion offers a wealth of upgrade cards and four figures that can be added to an infantry formation to greatly increase that unit’s power.

You can expect these packs to be available sometime in the 2nd quarter of this year.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    From reading the headline for the story, I was hoping to see that the expansions were different armies. While the game mechanics look interesting, I’m going to need a faction other than “generic humans” or “undead guys” to entice me into this game.

      True, though I think that it is okay for them to get their feet wet with the basics at first. But for any type of long term replay value we definitely need not only more troop types within each army, but probably 5 or more different armies with distinct troop and tactic styles.

    When is this game coming out! It looks great!
