King Robert Baratheon is dead. And while his (alleged) son Joffrey
sits on the throne, there are other Baratheons who have also made claim
to the kingdom. Both Renley and Stannis Baratheon have laid claim to the
Iron Throne and they are willing to fight to take it. House Baratheon
might be internally divided, but their troops are still just as strong
as ever on the battlefield.
The Baratheon Starter Set gives players everything they need to make
their claim on the Iron Throne. It comes complete with a rulebook, dice,
measuring sticks, stat cards, and miniatures to field a full army in
the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. Players will get
two units of Baratheon Wardens, and a unit each of Baratheon Sentinels
and Stag Knights. Along with that, there are Unit Attachments and NCUs,
including characters such as Renley and Stannis Baratheon, Alester
Florent, Shyra Errol, and more.Ages: 14+ | Players: 2+ | Playtime: 45 - 60 minutes
House Baratheon’s Troops Hit Like a Blacksmith Forging Iron House
Baratheon’s battle doctrine is fairly simple: be strong like iron. They
outfit their troops in heavy armor at every level and arm them with the
House’s signature warhammer. While this heavy kit does slow down troop
movements, the tenacity of their defenses can usually see them through.
The Baratheon Wardens are the main infantry unit that the House uses,
fielding many ranks of these rough and rugged fighters.
The Baratheon Wardens unit box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game
gives House Baratheon commanders a tough, resilient set of troops for
their forces. Clad in plate mail and carrying heavy shields, they have a
good Defense Save stat, though all of that does slow them down. Their
heavy warhammer attacks can crush the enemy’s spirit as much as it can
crush their bones. Defending against these pounding attacks can leave
enemy troops gasping for air as the strength is sucked from them.
Their Garishness of Their Getup is Matched Only by Their Cruelty There
are many mercenary companies in Westeros. Each one must find a way to
stand out from the rest. The Bloody Mummers do this via garish outfits
and makeup, along with wild antics. Butit would be only a fool that
would think them as mere clowns on the battlefield. Their outfits are
not the sign of a friendly disposition. In fact, it more acts as a
warning, as the Bloody Mummers are also known as one of the cruelest
mercenary companies. \
The Blood Mummers Skirmishers unit box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game
brings a dedicated melee unit to commander’s armies. Being a Neutral
unit, most commanders can pay their price and take them to battle. These
colorful jesters are not to be toyedwith in combat. Armed with vicious
blades, they roll a respectable number of dice in melee. Theyonly get
better when attacking an enemy that has not yet activated. Even
retaliating against them is dangerous, as their Parry ability will
punish those that attack haphazardly.
To stand out among all the different mercenary companies in Westeros,
one must get creative. For the Bloody Mummers, they have decided that
every aspect of their look must be as flamboyant as possible. That
doesn’t just mean bright clothing for themselves, but even to the
animals that they ride in combat. Not content with the various horse
breeds, they have instead opted to ride zorses, a combination of a horse
and a zebra. The Bloody Mummers Zorse Riders unit box for the A
Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game gives commanders a bright
new cavalry unit to use in combat. Being a Neutral unit, they can be
taken by most commanders. The Zorse Riders are masters at flanking
maneuvers. When catching an enemy in the side or rear, they get several
different bonuses, both offensively and defensively, potentially ruining
an enemy’s plans before they even begin.
Dogs have been used as part of the hunt for hundreds of years. Their
keen sense of smell, swift running speed, and vicious bite have helped
man put food on the table since their domestication. House Bolton,
though, has trained dogs to not just hunt wild game, but men out on the
field of battle. Accompanied by handlers, whose arrows help slow their
prey, the dogs are quick to chew apart anyone they catch
The Bastard’s Girls Unit Box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop
Miniatures Game allows Commanders to field this squad as part of their
force. Being a Neutral unit, any other house can hire them on. Lightly
armored, these swift hunters can easily take down enemies with a
combination of arrows and teeth.
On a battlefield where the fighting is done up close and personal, a reputation for vicious brutality can be just as effective a weapon as any blade or bow. The Bolton Cutthroats have simple armor and only a spiked mace at hand, but they are coldly efficient at cutting down enemies with much more elaborate armaments.
The A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game Bolton Cutthroats unit box contains 12 different Bolton Cutthroat miniatures in four different sculpts, one Dreadfort Captain Unit Attachment, a Movement Tray, and all of the associated Unit cards. The Cutthroats specialize in driving fear into their opponents, and with the Vicious Trait, they’ll be able to force their enemies to fail Panic Tests on a regular basis. It’s one thing to read about war in books, it’s quite another when you’re standing across the field from men who kill for sport!
Builders are the designers, engineers, and craftsmen that keep the
Night’s Watch stocked with arms and armor, as well as create and
maintain the siege weapons along The Wall. But everyone in the Night’s
Watch must be ready to take up arms when a threat to Westeros appears,
including the Builders.
The Builder Crossbowmen unit box gives Night’s Watch
commanders a dedicated ranged unit for their forces. Not very swift and
lacking heavy armor, the Crossbowmen are still capable of dishing out
damage at a distance. Their regular attacks have Sundering, meaning that
they can easily pierce enemy armor, while their Order allows them to
get a free attack on any enemy foolish enough to try and charge them.
They Say that War is Savage, These Men Exemplify That The
Free Folk are often framed as simple savages by those that live further
south. In many instances, that evaluation is wrong. While the Free Folk
don’t harbor the trapping of much of civilization, they are not simply
savages. The Cave Dwellers, though… they are simply savages. The Cave
Dweller Savages Unit Box gives Free Folk commanders a new option on the
battlefield. While the unit is armed simply with scavenged weapons
they’ve found along the way to the battle, and are clothed in not much
more than ratty old skins, they are still fearsome on the field, wading
into combat with wild abandon. To further their fury, there is the Cave
Dweller Alpha Unit Attachment, who can enhance the combat prowess of any
unit they join.
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.
Dothraki Horsemanship is Second to None The
warrior ways of the Dothraki might make them appear as simple barbarian
savages, screaming into the sky as they charge into battle. And many
commanders have underestimated them because of those stereotypes. A
Dothraki will spend more time on their horse than they will off of it,
and with that experience comes skill that regular training will never
achieve. Despite being unarmored, it is still difficult for a trained
swordsman to land a significant hit on a mounted Dothraki.
The Dothraki Screamers unit box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game
gives Targaryen commanders a solid cavalry unit for their forces. These
fearsome fighters can charge quickly into battle, dealing out deadly
blows. Skilled commanders will use them as a lightning-fast strike
force, avoiding getting them into protracted combats, lest their fewer
numbers start to catch up with them.
Nobody Wants to End Up as Next Week’s Fashion Many
in Westeros regard those in the Free Folk army as savages, and many in
the Free Folk seem to go out of their way to enhance that feeling. The
Followers of Bone are devoted to the Lord of Bones and have bedecked
themselves with an assortment of macabre skeletal accessories, including
using them as weapons in battle. Their disquieting practices and
appearance has a marked effect on the enemy.
The Followers of Bone unit box gives Free Folk commanders a
scary new unit to fill their ranks. The horrific visages of these
warriors can cause enemies to shrink back instead of surging forward,
making them take a Panic Test before they can attack the Followers. Add
to that the Champion of Bone Unit Attachment that grants restored Wounds
to the unit whenever an enemy fails a Panic Test when engaged with
them, and the Followers can be a very durable unit, indeed.
Skinchangers Have the Ability to Enter the Minds of Mighty Beasts at Will Skinchangers
have the rare ability to project their consciousness into nearby
creatures, altering their behavior. This can be used simply, perhaps
having them perform tricks. But it can also be used in combat. It’s bad
enough when an enemy unit is advancing on your position. It’s worse when
that unit is flanked by giant wolves or bears.
The Skinchangers unit box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game
gives Free Folk commanders a new option for their armies. The
Skinchanger Unit Attachment can be placed in any unit, ignoring usual
Unit Attachment rules (so they can join a unit with another attachment
already in it). When being added, the player can also add their animal
unit to the table. When the Skinchanger’s unit activates, the
accompanying animal can activate immediately afterward, creating perfect
“one-two punch” combinations. Just be sure that the two are never
further than Long Range from one-another, or the Skinchanger is killed.
Either situation will cause the animal to also be destroyed.
The Free Folk in the north care not for the squabbles of the various Houses south of The Wall. These nomadic tribes will go where they please. And recently, they’ve been flowing their way into warmer climes. However, the people already in those lands don’t take kindly to what appears to be an invasion force. Both sides are arming for war
The A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game Free Folk Starter Box has everything a player needs to start a Free Folk army. It contains two full units of Free Folk Raiders and Savage Giants, along with a unit of Free Folk Trappers. Additionally, it has various Unit Attachments, Commanders, and NPCs to customize what players field. Also included is the game rule-book, dice, tokens, measuring sticks, terrain templates, and everything necessary to send a force to war.
Cavalry are expensive, but the Lannisters spare no expense. The
Lannisters spare no expense when it comes to outfitting their troops.
Even the regular line soldier has the finest in arms and armor. So, when
it comes to a unit as special as their mounted knights, cost is never
an issue. The Knights of Casterly Rock have literally the best equipment
and training that money can buy. And they are worth every penny on the
battlefield as they cut their way through enemy ranks.
The Lannister Knights of Casterly Rock Unit Box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game
brings a fast, hard-hitting, and durable unit to the battlefield. Being
cavalry, they get an extra movement at the start of their activation.
They are also deadly on the Charge, with their weapons gaining Critical
Blow and Sundering. Enemies will quickly become disheartened fighting
them, being forced to make Panic Tests whenever the Knights survive a
round of combat.A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a
competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player
controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield
units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political
stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron
When it comes to training soldiers, Crossbowmen require a lot less work than average. The real cost comes in the production of the crossbow, itself. Technological advances aren’t cheap, and keeping weapons in working order during war is no easy task. Still, a family with resources like the Lannisters can afford to keep this ranged killing machine armed and ready for battle.
The A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game Lannister Crossbowmen unit box contains 12 miniature figures in four different sculpts, one Unit card, and one Movement Tray. This unit of deadeye soldiers takes advantage of the technology available to a family of means. At close or long range, their bolts can pierce even thick armor. However, a wise Commander will keep them away from melee charges, if possible.
A Song of Ice and Fire TMG : Lannister Guardsmen
Of all the Great Houses of Westeros, there is none more wealthy and ready for war than the Lannisters. Wars are fought with money, and the ability to arm troops with the finest steel and equip them with armor to keep them alive and hacking at the enemy goes a long way over the course of a battle.
The A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game Lannister Guards unit boxes come with 12 Lannister Guard figures, one Guard Captain Unit Attachment, a Movement Tray, and all associated Unit cards. These soldiers are not the fastest, or even the strongest in the war. What they do have is an incredible level of defense, giving them the ability to wear their opponents down. Wars are won by those with the will to continue fighting.
If the Lannisters are known for one thing, it’s their deep pockets. Their wealth lets them afford only the best when it comes to arming and armoring up their troops. Halberds tend to be a relatively cheap weapon to produce, but those made for Lannister troops are still of the highest quality, almost guaranteed to never break, even when receiving a charge from enemy cavalry. And receiving a charge is just what these men are trained to do, and do it well.
The Lannister Halberdier Unit Box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game gives Lannister commanders new options for their forces. The unit is formidable in both offensive and defensive capacities, not losing dice after their first rank is destroyed, and being able to brace for an enemy charge, granting them a preemptive attack against their foes. The addition of an Assault Veteran Unit Attachment gives them staying power once battle has been met, adding extra dice to their melee attacks.
In all of Westeros, there are many a swordsman or woman who lay claim
to be the best in all the land, but unless they were one of the seven
of the King’s Guard, that boast would most assuredly be simply hot air.
The King’s Guard include the seven best soldiers in the kingdom. With
the duty of protecting the king from harm, they have to be.
he Lannister Heroes II box for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop
Miniatures Game brings many new options for Lannister Commanders.
Included in the set are the seven King’s Guard, each one a character
with their own stats and special abilities. Also included is King
Joffrey Baratheon. Considering how popular Joffrey is as king, the
King’s Guard will certainly have their work cut out for them.
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.
Swift and Maneuverable, the Ranger Trackers Can Find Any Weakness in an Enemy The
Ranger Trackers are certainly not the hardest-hitting or most
heavily-armored cavalry unit in Westeros, but they are some of the
fastest and most agile. These swift hunters are able to get almost
anywhere they need to be on the battlefield. Utilized as scouts when not
in battle, they also have a keen knack for finding weaknesses in enemy
units, setting them up for their brothers to take down.
The Ranger Trackers unit for the Night’s Watch brings a
swift cavalry unit to a Commander’s arsenal. They may not hit hard, and a
good Commander will keep them out of harm’s way, but their ability to
cause enemy units to become Vulnerable is an invaluable resource. Either
setting up for a shot from their own recurve bows or a charge from
another friendly unit, enemy forces will be wary of the sounds of
galloping hooves in the distance.
