The armies of the Reich and the Union continue to clash, relentless in their opposition of each other. Each mission grows more deadly than the last, and new recruits are highly sought after.
Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the release of Troop Packs for Tannhäuser! Each pack further expands the Union and Reich factions by adding additional troops, tokens, and scenarios. Head to your friendly local game store to pick up your Troop Packs today, or visit our webstore!
The Reich Troop Pack includes new Schocktruppen and Stossstruppen figures, while the Union Troop Pack comes with new Commando Alpha and Commando Delta figures. Each Troop Pack includes one figure for each type of troop. Additionally, these expertly detailed pre-painted figures all feature an alternate color scheme, making it easy for players to differentiate these new troops from the ones found in the core game.
These Troop Packs give players new options when constructing their forces, and they provide an all new equipment pack for their Troops! Each pack also features brand new background information, a unique scenario, and all new tokens in addition to the ones found in the core set. As Troopers are the only characters able to benefit from reinforcement, they are now more important than ever.
With new figures, tokens, and scenarios, these Troop Packs are the perfect way to reinforce your faction for the coming battles. And, with the Tannhäuser Revised Edition Rulebook now available, each faction will need more firepower than ever before!
Tannhäuser is a squad based tactical board game set in an alternate timeline in which WWI has never ended. The forces of the Reich have turned to the occult, while the forces of the Union have delved into alien technology and developed deadly weapons of war. Using the revolutionary Path-Finding System, Tannhäuser is quick and easy to play.
Holy Heck I just used the same By-line for my E-mail notifaction I sent out to my mates, after mine arrived in the post this afternoon.
For Union players all I can say is "Fire Makes All Things Good!!", the rest of the new additions will give less developed Union players a more level playing field
For the Riech, Isn't the Serial Killer hard enough to kill alredy? and the Reich HtH stick is getting a bit overdone without spreading it to the Stormie, also it re-enforces the basic Reich Tactics and opens few new play variations for them.
Where to put the Books & Cards? after Ramirez the Card Bay is over full in my Core Box and the Token Bays are just about full, the Minies Bay still has some space. I'm trying to keep Novgorod for the Matriachy
When is the Matriachy Bot pack coming? I half expect after their new Hero.
As for Troop Pack 2 for Union I expect it to be a pair of Commando Omega HtH experts and am at a loss for what will be in the Reich Troop Pack 2, Blusturm Agents perhaps?
Yeah, any news about Daedelus. Btw, thanks for these reinforcements. They will be handy.
I expected something more interesting like, you know, a preview of the new tokens. Now FFG may we have news of what to expect after, even a date perhaps ? Daedalus (the orignal version) is almost two years old now and we're still waiting on the FAQ for the Revised Edition.
Sweet! I'm heading to the hobby store this weekend!
Context clues are your friend language man! In fact - that's pretty much how very language works; and when only the words are available, we call it syntax and grammar. The two pictures on the front of the box should help you out!
Ordered mine yesterday. I can't wait!
This is really exciting to hear, and I definately look forward to the greater variation in gameplay that these alternate troops will introduce.
Any news on the Daedalus maps revealed in August of 2009 would be awesome, it would be great to use these figures in new environments!
The product description states the Union troop pack "comes with two additional Commando Alpha and Commando Delta figures." This reads to me that you get two of each figure. But at a price of $19.95 for the pack I'm guessing you just get one of each.
If there is just one of each, then the description should read "comes with an additional Commando Alpha and Commando Delta figure," to make people like me who only have a BA in English know for sure.
Today's news item doesn't state the quantity or price of this must-have item, so no help there either.
OK, I'm done now.
They have and they look good!
