CMON Previews Night's Watch Heroes 1 Box Set

The members of the Night's Watch have sworn to protect Westeros. While they all have that goal in mind, each one still has their own ambitions and thoughts on how the Brotherhood should be run. With the release of the Night's Watch Heroes 1 box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game, some of those strong personalities will make it to your tabletop. We get a preview of what's coming here.

From the post:

When the men of the Night’s Watch take their vows, they forsake all lands and titles they had in their previous life. That doesn’t mean, however, that they lose their personalities or determination. In fact, many who join get their passion and drive honed in the fires of the forges and through combat with the horrors of the north. These individuals all may wear the black of the Brotherhood, but they certainly are not all the same. Soon, Night’s Watch players will get a chance to add a whole host of new characters to their armies in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game with the release of Night’s Watch Heroes Box 1. Let’s take a look at some of what players can expect when it hits shelves.

As with many Hero Boxes, this one offers new commander options for player’s armies. There are three here, and like all commanders, changing them out in a force can drastically change how they play on the tabletop, both in the commander’s abilities as an Attachment or NCU, and in how their Tactics Cards work. In this box, there is Allister Thorne, whose Tactics cards emphasize debuffing enemy units, either by downgrading their stats based on what zones on the Tactics Board you control, to just dealing wounds directly to the enemy (the ultimate debuff). Donal Noye is a more all-round commander, with one Tactics card buffing a friendly unit, another debuffing an enemy unit, and another attaching to a friendly unit and giving them extra defense at the cost of offense. Finally, there’s Othell Yarwyck, the master builder, who emphasizes buffing his units, granting them extra dice and special abilities with his Tactics Cards.
