They’ve released new Tactical Formations. And it’s not just one or two factions, but each one has a new one you can pick from.

Relics Preview: Ridend Barons

Tor Gaming shows off some more Relics previews with a look at the Ridend Barons.


From the preview:

In battle the Ridend Barons stalk the fields, directing the brave Ridendean warriors onward into the thick of the fighting. Each accompanied by two of their most loyal Men-at-arms, one bearing the Ridend Barons own personal Coat of Arms and the other acting as musician/signaller, each baron is an inspiring sight to behold. Such divine oaths of loyalty are commanded by the Ridend Barons that those who swear to serve them will not hesitate to march head on into certain doom if they should be ordered to do so.

Tor Gaming posts Ridend Archers preview

Tor Gaming gives us a look at some concept art for the new Ridend Archers they’re working on for Relics.

Ridend Archers


From the website:

In traditional Ridendean warfare the bow and arrow was looked down upon by the upper classes as being a dishonourable weapon and to employ archers against an opponent of virtue was seen to be a terrible weakness of character and judgement. In modern day Relicia however, the Ridendean nobility has found very little by the way of honour and virtue amongst their enemies and the reluctance they once had in using archers has long since faded into obscurity.
