I think Melisandre may have an alternate command card since there are rules for creepy shadow babies. Or maybe it's just a scenario. Anyway, sounds like shadow babies are goning to be everywhere.
Oh, and how awesome is Robert's war hammer. Possibility to kill a full red commander with three green dice (if I'm reading this right).
I think creating shadowspawn may be part of a leadership card (maybe as a tactic?).
Melisandre's troop conversion seems like its going to be pretty hard to do. You can only put tokens on adjacent units, and the zealot forces will be unable to run away. I doubt that she will be a red infantry unit, blue at best. So she will be locked in combat if you move her up, and she'll get hit (as a blue?) with Valors, Flags, and blues thats half the die. She'll be too tasty a target if she gets up in melee. I think she will be best served as a healer, and a killer with Shadow Babies, whenever you can do that.
I spent most of last night unpacking this game. I was very excited to get it home and open it up… I will probably still be working on sorting everything tonight for another hour or two
I'm just sad I wont have a chane to play any of my friends in the new scenarios for a couple week, We are still working our way thru all the earlier expansions..
Cool! If you have the time, could you list who fights against whom in the scenarios, and which expansions are required? We'll probably get the German version, just for consistency, so we'll have to wait somewhat longer (and we only have 2 scenarios from BwB left to play).

I dont have it in front of me, but they do a good job, of adding into almost all the expansion stuff between all the scearnios.
Many of them are just the core set + this set, but there are many scenarios they use models from all sorts of expansions. Only one I dont remember seeing from memory was brotherhood without banners, and that might also be included, I just dont remember it.
there is 1 scenario that uses the battle board from the box WITH the battle board from main game with an isane amount of troops on the table.
