Stark vs Lannister Starter set: A Song Of Ice and Fire Core Box
A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game lets players take control of their favorite Houses from the novels represented by trays of high-quality, pre-assembled miniatures and lead them into battle against their opponents. Players can recreate their favorite moments from the series or create their own stories. What if the Red Wedding never happened, and Robb Stark assaulted King’s Landing? Now fans can find out!
Battles can range from large-scale wars with hundreds of miniatures to simple skirmishes between a few units without complicating the elegantly designed rules. The game features several unique systems, including alternating activations that keep the players engaged; a Rank System that changes a unit’s capabilities as the battle rages on; a Tactics System that provides strategic powers fueled by a finite resource each round; and, most importantly, the iconic Heroes, such as Robb Stark and Jaime Lannister, that can change the course of war both on and off the battlefield.
The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set has everything needed for two players to fight epic battles. Containing forces for both House Stark and House Lannister, players build their armies, select leaders, construct their tactics deck, and engage in one of five different game modes.
In combat, hitting the enemy without them being able to hit you back is a very powerful ability. In the battles of Westeros, warriors armed with bows can whittle down even heavily-armed foes, bringing victory to one side. In that role, Crannogman Trackers are the unit of choice for Free Folk commanders. They are lightly armed and armored, but that allows them to be quick and nimble. The skill with their bows means enemies risk dying under a hail of missile fire. When joined by a Crannogman Warden, they become even more deadly, giving them a guiding hand to who to attack next.
The Cranogman Tracker Unit Box for A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game comes complete with everything a Free Folk player needs to put these harassers on the battlefield. They excel at movement and fighting on enemy flanks. And the Warden Unit Attachment gives them bonuses when attacking foes that have yet to activate.
One thing remains true for the unaligned forces in the War of the Five Kings, whether they’re fighting for coin, self-interest, or simple survival, they always remain true to themselves. They are a wild card that can be added to any army in the game.
Some Heroes, like Roose Bolton and Ramsay Snow, are most at home on the battlefield alongside their men. Others, such as Petyr Baelish and Lord Varys, like to manipulate the situation behind-the-scenes. The Neutral Heroes set for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game comes with everything a Commander needs to introduce some unknown elements into the war for the fate of Westeros.
In battle, the goal is to defeat your opponent without being defeated, yourself. If you can attack your enemy and they cannot retaliate, that goes a long way to victory. For House Stark, that means employing skilled bowmen in their ranks. They have trained relentlessly in their everyday lives as trappers, rangers, and hunters. Now, they form up and send out steel-tipped death to the foes of the Direwolf.
The Stark Bowmen Unit Box provides a long-range option for Stark commanders in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. Though very lightly armored and not equipped for melee, they more than make up for it with their ability to put volley fire at enemies. They can even ignore line of sight requirements, arcing their arrows high into the air to strike at hidden targets.
Some units can be judged on their military skills or strength, but in war, when another army is advancing, loyalty is a much more valuable asset. The Sworn Swords are the bedrock of the strategies for Stark commanders. They are brave and capable to be sure, but their loyalty to the Direwolf banner can never be questioned. To a man, they would rather perish in battle, than leave one of their brothers behind.
The A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game Stark Sworn Swords unit box contains 12 miniature Sworn Sword figures, one Sworn Sword Captain figure, one Sworn Sword Unit Attachment, a Movement Tray, and all associated Unit cards. These warriors have waited in the frozen North too long, dreaming of battle. They may not be the best equipped units in the war, but they know that shiny armor and pretty swords alone do not a soldier make.
Stark Deluxe Activation Banners: A Song Of Ice and Fire Exp.
During battle, communication between a commander and their troops is extremely important. Many great battles have been won and lost because one side was able to more-effectively utilize its resources because of superior communication. Banners have been used for centuries as a communication technique. When the Iron Throne is on the line, every detail matters.
Th Deluxe Activation Banner set gives commanders an easy way to keep track of which of their units have activated and which are left to go. The set contains 10 premium plastic banners, each attached to a 30mm base. The banners can be placed next to a unit to show that it has activated, or on its unit Stat Card. When the unit starts taking casualties, the banner easily fits into a space on the units movement tray.
House Stark is known for its honor and integrity. As such, many have become allies of the great House that might be shunned or turned away, otherwise. In a world such as Westeros, it’s good to have friends. You never know what kind of skills they might be able to bring to the battlefield.
The Stark Heroes II set for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game gives Stark Commanders a whole host of new options for their forces. Players can bring in the swordsmanship of the likes of Syrio Farel or his greatest apprentice, Arya Stark. Or perhaps they’ll want the cunning of Meera and Jojen Reed. For dog lovers, they could bring Rickon Stark and his direwolf, Shaggydog.
The horsemen of Winterfell are well known for their expert riding skills. Though Stark Outriders eschew the heavier armor of many other mounted units, what they lose in durability they more than make up for in maneuverability and speed. Not ones to be bogged down by enemy forces, they can quickly distance themselves from their foes, ready to charge back in again on a flank.
The Stark Outriders Unit Box gives Stark Commanders a unit of cavalry for their forces in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. These swift steeds can easily make their way around the battlefield. When engaged in combat, after they perform a melee attack, they can make a free Retreat action, making sure their opponents are left without the chance to counter-attack.
