But which Clan will be able to form the new government in its image? Along with that, there’s 6 new Wrath of Kings sets, 2 each for Goritsi, Shael Han, and Nassier.

Wrath of Kings Rules and Cards Update Posted

Wrath of Kings: Rising Conflicts will be releasing soon. With it will be plenty of new things to add to your forces. But this is more looking back on old releases, but in a new way.

Well, those cracks have been filled in and a new version of the rulebook, as well as the various stat cards and motivations have been updated on the game’s website.

Gen Con Day 2 Photo Galleries

So, it’s coming up to 8pm. Day 2 is definitely in the books for Gen Con 2016. It’s been a very busy day. I’m tired, but still pretty amped about everything that’s gone on.

Wrath of Kings Reviews Neritic Horror

There are many crazy things that live in our oceans. Just the other day I saw this story about some neon-green-eyed fish-thing that they brought up from the depths.
Yeah, I really have no desire to go swimming in the ocean, thankyouverymuch. Hell, I might run into a Neritic Horror! At least if that did happen, though, the preview posted up for Wrath of Kings will let me know how to deal with it.

Wrath of Kings 2-Player Starter Now Available

Shell Cracker Previewed For Wrath of Kings

Though I don’t get to have it all that often, I do love seafood. In particular, I love shellfish. However, this is one crustacean that’s just as likely to try and eat me as I am to eat him. A new preview for Wrath of Kings has been posted. It’s the Shell Cracker for Hadross.

Arkazan Greatwing Preview Posted for Wrath of Kings

In Wrath of Kings, Resilience can very much mean the difference between keeping a figure on the field and having them taken off as a casualty. Sure, there are your wounds backing you up, but if you’ve got a good Resilience score, you might never have to worry about taking a wound. Well, in any good arms race, if there’s a good defense, there’s going to be an offense created to try and crack it. That’s where the Arkazan Greatwing comes in. It’s also what we get a preview of today.

Wrath of Kings Two-Player Starter Box Announced

My first ever purchase for a miniatures game was splitting a 2-player box set (of the 2nd edition 40k box, actually). They’re ridiculously handy for getting you and your friend into a game.

This Con Season may be over, but it’s not going to be long before next year’s starts up. With how wide the “Con Season” is, it barely ends at all. Besides, you gotta plan ahead for these things.

Anyway, event registration is open for CoolMiniOrNot’s events for Adepticon next year.

Wrath of Kings Faction Video Spotlight Series Launches

CMON has started posting up new Faction Spotlights for the upcoming Wrath of Kings game. They’ll be posting one a day. The first one is the Nasier. This faction draws most of its power from ceremonial masks that have been imbued with spiritual and elemental powers. They’re a very martial nation and their combat prowess shows. On the tabletop, they’re not much for trickery and deception and would much rather run in and chop your face off.

Check out the video below the cut: Continue reading
