I'm not much of a religious bear. I'm not sure what happens when we die. But the Poor Fellows certainly do (and they're ready to help you get there, if you oppose them). Their devotion makes them formidable troops on the battlefield, even if they have no training and are going to battle in little more than robes. Soon, Lannister players in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game will be able to add this devout unit to their army.
From the post:
For some, their faith is a private matter, kept to themselves in their homes. For others, they shout their faith on the street corner for all to hear. The Poor Fellows go even further, gladly taking up arms to show that their faith is the strongest. They have 100% conviction in their beliefs, and they use that zeal on the battlefield under the banner of House Lannister. Next month, House Lannister players in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game will be able to add these holy warriors to their forces. Let’s take a look at how they work.
The Poor Fellows come in at five points to field. That’s a moderate point cost, lettingthem fit into many different army builds. The Poor Fellows are a unit of extremes: they have some stats that don’t seem all that great, but then they have some that are amazing, along with a pair of strong special abilities that give the unit a table presence like few others.
On the attacking side of things, the unit rolls seven dice at full ranks, but since the Poor Fellows are just people with strong convictions but little actual training (and areequipped with just whatever they could find), they only hit on a 5+. This might make players think that the unit won’t do much damage to an enemy. However, their Fanatical Zeal special ability allows them to spend a Faith Token (gained whenever they pass a Morale test) to deal D3+1 automatic Wounds to an enemy. With a good roll, they could eliminate an entire rank from an opposing unit with no chance for Defense Saves. However, the Poor Fellows unit will also suffer the same number of Wounds and deplete their own ranks as well.
