Skeletons, Ghosts, Zombies, ... just all sorts of undead. The season for them is basically upon us. And if you want to extend the spooky goings-on to your tabletop, and you play BattleLore, then you're in luck. Fantasy Flight Games has just released two Undead Army Packs for the game.
Fantasy Flight Games has a big preview they've posted up today. (see what I did there?)
He's not jolly. He's not green (unless you paint him that way). But he's nonetheless a giant, and he's coming to the battlefields of BattleLore. Of course, it's not just a new miniature to add to your forces, but new extras as well.
The undead have long been popular as baddies in all forms of media, miniatures gaming especially. Now they're invading BattleLore 2nd Edition from Fantasy Flight Games in the form of Terrors of the Mists and Heralds of Dreadfall, a pair of expansion packs that will be coming out soon. Each pack brings you enough figures to make a fifty point army, and as is common with expansion products from Fantasy Flight, there's a lot more than just models in the packs.
Fantasy Flight Games has unleashed the locusts in the latest major expansion for BattleLore. Locust brings new units with which to fight your opponents in the form of the Uthuk Y’llan. Coupled with the new multiplayer version, the expansion also brings 5 new maps for you and your opponent to throw down on. Go check out this new bug-filled (the good kind, in the form of ones that go and attack your enemies) expansion.

From the announcement:
Fantasy Flight Games has released the online multiplayer format for BattleLore: Command. So if you want to play your buddy in Walla-Walla, but you're stuck in Addis Ababa, you can do that. You get to set your own battlefield and create your force and throw down. The update is free for those that already have BattleLore: Command.

From the update:
Fantasy Flight Games is showing off previews of some new army packs they'll be coming out with soon for BattleLore.



From the announcement:

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce two upcoming Army Pack expansions for BattleLore Second Edition. Stand your ground against chaos and destruction with the Daqan army in Hernfar Guardians, or lacerate your opponents and lay waste to the land with the demonic Uthuk Y’llan units of the Warband of Scorn.

In each Army Pack you will find four new unit types for BattleLore Second Edition and two army cards that allow you to quickly deploy complete Daqan or Uthuk Y’llan armies composed entirely of the new units. Additional infantry units – the Daqan Citadel Guards or the Uthuk Blood Harvesters – are also included, along with a complete alternate deck of lore cards, new terrain tiles, and scenario cards. Choose one of the suggested armies or combine the new units with ones from the core set – either way, you’ll command a force of unprecedented might and tactical capabilities.
Fantasy Flight Games is coming out with an expansion dice set for BattleLore. Because you can always use more dice.


From the announcement:

Whether you’re leading the Rune Golems and Citadel Guard of the Daqan Lords, or unleashing a horde of brutal Uthuk Y’llan Blood Harvesters, it’s vital to keep your attention on the unfolding battle. Stay focused on your battles in Terrinoth with a tool of convenience: extra dice!

Fantasy Flight Games now has BattleLore 2nd edition available over in their website.


From the release:

The Uthuk Y’llan hordes march out of the Ru Darklands into the realm of Terrinoth, spreading terror and death in their wake. Only one garrison of the Daqan Lords stands in the way of the coming onslaught. The bloodthirsty ferocity of the Uthuk Y’llan may be the ultimate test of the Daqan Lords’ cunning and military intelligence. As the invasion begins, you can finally put your own skills as a general to the test, because BattleLore Second Edition is now available at your local retailer!
