WARRIORS OF ELSWIND FOREST




The Warriors of Elswind Forest booster brings you Union soldiers for Jandar. Einar adds to his Gladiators, with the addition of the Gladiatrix. The ranks of Valkrill's undead swell with the arrival of the Tomb Skeleton Archers.

20TH MAINE VOLUNTEERS



Jandar again turns to America's history, this time to the Civil War, finding the bold and loyal Volunteer soldiers from Maine. Although they disappeared in Gettysburg, they battle on in Valhalla, continuing to fight on resolutely, never abandoning their position.

The figures used for this unit are Scenearama figures from the American Civil War Scene Setters set.


TOMB SKELETON ARCHERS




The clacking of bones signals the presence of animated skeletons deep in the crypt. But far before they come into view, deadly shafts rain down from Valkrill's newest minions: the Tomb Skeletons are now backed up by a shambling horde of Tomb Skeleton Archers.




PDF File

One of the figures used is the Skeletal Archer from the Legendary Encounters set of Reaper Miniatures.


The second figure used is a D&D Miniatures figure from the Angelfire set. Its model name and number are #50 Skeletal Archer


ACHILLEAN GLADIATRIX



Gladiators were symbols of the violence and power of ancient cultures. Among the many men that dominated the Colosseum, a few females managed to break through. Armed with a shield and a long javelin, they were versatile in combat, able to throw their spear long distances or stab powerfully at close range.



PDF File


The figure used for this unit is a Amazon, Amazon Bana-Mighdall, or Phillipus figure from the Heroclix the Brave and the Bold.


-------------------------------------------

This week's glyph is the Glyph of Lorja Ivor. It is a weaker version of the Classic Ivor.




-------------------------------------------

Next week, Utgar and Vydar get a couple of gun-toting outlaws. Utgar also recruits a tech-savy dwarf, and Vydar gets a Agent from Arctorus.

Well, the Dund precedence would be "any card (or cards if..."

It's clear to me that by "any card" we mean "any and all cards" because otherwise the power doesn't make much sense. I would not argue for rewording it necessarily, a FAQ entry should cover any potential ambiguity, IMHO.

Good job guys, great release! One question though, the 20th, do they still get the normal height advantage bonus along with the Downhill Attack?

The 20th don't seem to follow Dund's precedent, because they don't have the parenthetical about multiple army cards. The power tries to do the wording without that parenthetical, which is part of where the ambiguity derives.

Doesn't really matter in the long run, though.

Three great cards! By coincidence, I just got more Amazon figures for my Supers games. The skeleton archers are terrific, and I also have the figures. The 20th Maine are thematic for their famous stand on Little Round Top at Gettysburg, for us history buffs. I look forward to their southern bretheren, especially if my suggestions about them are adopted...

Yes, the 20th Maine get the normal height bonus in addition to the power's bonus. It's the same as the Granite Guardians' Landslide power.

Sweet. I agree with @chas . Some confederates for the 20th to duke it out with would be nice. Can't wait for the Unique Heroes to show up. I wonder if the Arctorus will have another omega tier weapon like Rygarn from wave 18. These guys are awesome. Keep up the good work!

What planet are the skeletons from? The basic side of the card says "Valkrill" where the planet name should be.

The Tomb Skeleton Archers are from Toril, like the Tomb Skeletons.

I want to echo Grish:

Is it possible to get the correct leading on these new cards? I think what you want is for the leading to be 0.5 point sizes larger than the font size, such as 8.5 on 9.

I also agree with the other comments on the 20th's attempt to handle multiple cards for the same common squad. Dund is not a comparable example here because the sentence structure is different. Here's one way to update it to be clear and unambiguous:
If there is only one unrevealed Order Marker among all 20th Maine Volunteer Army Cards you control, all 20th Maine Volunteers you control add 2 to their defense dice.
