The warhorns sounded and the riders took the ridge, resplendent in their colorful heraldry and shimmering steel. Knights they were, born for battle and eager for glory. In their wake, footmen rallied to their banners and soon the army was on the march. Behind this wall of galloping armor and longswords, none feared the battle beyond.
Fantasy Flight Games is honored to announce upcoming release of Code of Chivalry for BattleLore! Swell the ranks of your armies with this Human Army Pack, featuring knights, arbalestiers, and lancers.
Code of Chivalry comes complete with two new unit types as well as two unit types previously released in the Hundred Years War and the Scottish Wars expansions. These units will easily bolster the forces of any Human army, giving players more options during their BattleLore games.
Also included in this expansion are 6 new Call to Arms Deployment cards so players can customize their adventures. Rather than using the pre-constructed armies found in the adventure book, players can choose to use these Call to Arms Deployment cards to create an army of their own design.
Finally, Code of Chivalry comes with four new adventures to give players a knightly challenge for their new units!
Check back soon for more information on Code of Chivalry!
Set in a world that bridges history and fantasy, BattleLore is board game that puts 2 players in command of a vast array of miniature troops on the battlefields of medieval Europe. Using the easy-to-learn Commands and Colors system, players can wage thrilling battles quickly!
I am actually very excited to see this. We play a custom three player game, with one of us playing goblins, one dwarves, and one humans. This will nicely flesh out the armies.
And I hope there will be more (new) armies in the future.
I think we have enough humans for several complete armies by now. Haha. Seriously though, everyone knows that the one thing BattleLore players have been asking for more than anything else is new army packs. Fantasy Flight just haven't gotten around to the "new" part yet. This is still a step in the right direction. Besides, if you go through the checklist, we've now got full armies of Goblins, Dwarves, and Humans. That means the next army pack we'll see announced must certainly be the "new" one that we've all been waiting for since 2006. I'm well aware that FF are the masters of getting gamers to repurchase stuff they've already got, but even they can't keep it up forever. I've waited this long. I can wait a little bit longer. I have to believe that something (anything) without the words "Goblin, Dwarf, or Human" is on it's way. ...and I'm sure I'll even end up buying "Code of Chivalry" too. BattleLore is still my favorite game, so how can I not? Well played Fantasy Flight. Well played.
We never have enough humans to take the Goblins and Dwarfs down! I see some new riders on the cover!
Didn't we already have enough humans for a complete army???
Not sure I'm going to buy this one...
