Mr. Black gave us two examples of the revamp coming to the cards in Dark Age. The first of which is a Warchief. To the keen eye you will notice a couple things missing. First there is no size information.
The other card here is the Wasteland Warrior. Again you'll notice no points or size listed. But the real new tidbit here is something on both cards. At the bottom there is what appears to be some kind of link symbol followed by Wasteland Warrior (4). This is interesting because the Warchief has the same symbol followed by Wasteland Warrior (6). When asked about this Mr. Black only said, "In time... In time..." So obviously this is something new. He also said that there are things missing and that, "Well, always remember, cards aren't only one-sided..."
- Wasteland Warrior's Grapple doesn't have a target number.
- Warchief doesn't have Take Charge (Wasteland Warriors)
- Warchief doesn't have No Fear
When I posted this on the announcement comments, Mr. Black's response was, "All good observations Belgarath, all very good ;)" This would indicated that they were intentional, and not misprints. Further evidence that the next edition is going to hold some surprises.
Of course there is one other bit of news that slipped in this preview of things to come. With this new edition there will be a card pack available, that will contain all the cards. So now we can all get the high quality cards that Dark Age makes for our models and every one we might face across the table. Unless they are outrageously priced, I know I'll be getting a set. Until next time...
