It’s a feast this month with the release of a whole new faction for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. However, there’s plenty for everyone at the table. This month, we have the Baratheon Starter Set as well as the Neutral Heroes #2 box set and the deluxe activation banners for five different factions. Let’s take a little look deeper into each.
House Baratheon is a house divided. After their brother’s death, both Stannis and Renly have laid claim to being next in line to sit on the Iron Throne. The vast resources of House Baratheon have been split, but even at partial strength, the House has plenty of men and materiel to put House Baratheon in charge of King’s Landing. House Baratheon’s battle strategy focuses on heavily armed and armored troops, fielding some of the toughest units in the game. For players that want a rockand a hammer for their army, this is the faction to go with.
Along with the new faction, players are getting new options with the release of the Neutral Heroes #2 box set. There are new NCUs, new Attachments, and even new Commanders in the set. Bronn helps the unit he’s in, as long as the price is right. Brienne takes her knightly vows very seriously and extends those standards to anyone she leads. All these new options will greatly expand how players can build their forces, letting them customize their forces like never before.
But the Neutral Heroes #2 box isn’t the only thing that gives new things for players.This month, there’s five faction’s worth of deluxe activation banners also available. There are banner sets available for Stark, Lannister, Night's Watch, Free Folk, and Neutral factions. These premium banners are a perfect addition to the table, giving a great new way for players to show who has and hasn’t activated in their force. They stand up tall, letting both players easily see them even from across the field.
This month will certainly change many games of the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. Players may find themselves using or facing off against a new faction. Or perhaps they will be adding or fighting against a bunch of new Neutral figures. The look of the game might be different and clearer with the use of the deluxe activation banners. One way or another, things are changing. And change is something to be thankful for.
The Neutral Heroes #2 and deluxe activation banners are available now!
The House Baratheon Starter set will arrive in stores on November 22nd!
