The Cowboy/Ninja Legion will be given two zero victory point artifact cards at the beginning of the match. The artifacts will be represented by placing a black turn marker on the card that is carrying the artifact.


The Tin Star
Artifact
0 points


Round Up the Posse
Instead of taking a turn with the wearer of the Sheriff's Badge, you may instead take a turn with up to 3 Cowboys you control. The Sheriff's Badge may only be worn by a Cowboy Unique Hero.
Stuck With It
This artifact may not be passed to another figure and disappears from play when the figure wearing it is destroyed.



Mask of Iga
Artifact
0 points


The Shadows Obey
Instead of taking a turn with the wearer of the Mask of Iga, you may instead take a turn with up to 3 Unique Ninja Heroes or 1 Squad of Unique Ninjas you control. The Mask of Iga may only be worn by a Ninja Unique Hero.


Stuck With It
This artifact may not be passed to another figure and disappears from play when the figure wearing it is destroyed.

The idea was to make some fun legions.

The Cowboys/Samurai worked a charm. They were a lot of fun during polayetesting and at the event.

The Vikings were also a hoot. They started as 4 squads instead of 3, but that was just too darn good.

Some of the Legions had tons more points.

The Deathwalker Legion and Samurai Legion come to mind.

Both were in the 700s I think (we were aiming for 450-550).

But they were fine in actual play.

Advice from participants was to make the Legions less specific ie more a mix of range and melee.

Also to lower the points of the Legions.

Ehh. We finished before our desired start time--the whole thing took 2 hours and 45 minutes--so I think the points were about right.

Broadening the focus of the Legions may have actually mad things go longer. When you've got a bunch of Vikings or an army of Gorrillanators, you know what you're supposed to do. If you have both...

The complete absence of Stingers, Q-9, Mass Line, rats, etc is completely on purpose.
