Announcing the Legends Expansion for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game
Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game | Published 22 March 2011

Rising up from among the countless inhabitants of the Old World, there are those who are selected by fate to serve as its harbingers. Some are champions, defending the weak and battling against the ever-encroaching influence of Chaos. Others are great scholars, laboring in solitude to unravel the mysteries of magic, machinery, and medicine. Still others become the agents of darkness, reveling in the favor of Ruinous Powers or seeking their own selfish goals. But for good or ill, the winds of fate grant these influential figures the means to alter the Old World for generations to come, and in doing so, to become legends.

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the Legends Expansion for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game! With 165 all-new cards (3 copies each of 55 unique cards), the Legends Expansion delivers compelling new mechanics and deck-building options that will bring your Warhammer: Invasion game to new levels of immersion and strategy.

A New Layer of Gameplay

Chief among the gameplay innovations introduced by the Legends Expansion is the inclusion of a new card type: Legend. A Legend card represents one of a faction’s most influential heroes, leaders, and villains; the placement of such of card in your play area affects every zone you control, as it lends its individual strengths to your forces as a whole. For new and casual players, Legend cards present an exciting additional layer of strategy. For veteran players, these powerful cards are the keystones around which entire decks can be built.

Placed in the center of your capital board, Legend cards lend their power to all three of your zones, along with certain other benefits as described by their text. Your kingdom will prosper under the strong guidance of Thorgrim Grudgebearer, Karl Franz, Malekith, and many more. But can you protect these legendary figures from enemy attacks long enough to benefit from their presence?

With a host of new units, tactics, and support cards for players of all factions, the Legends Expansion offers the perfect complement to your existing Warhammer: Invasion decks. Learn more at our detailed Legends Expansion website, and keep checking back as we preview this exciting deluxe expansion. Then, late this spring, take your place alongside the Old World’s greatest legends!

Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game is a card game by Eric M. Lang in which 2 players develop their kingdoms and lay waste to their foes. Each side is comprised of either the forces of Order or the forces of Destruction as they seek to extend their empire to include the entire Old World. The Living Card Game format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Battle Pack expansions to the core game.

It's a wyvern. A 'lesser' dragon. The orcs use them.

Unfortunately this isn't much of a surprise thanks to some clumsy foreign distributor who leaked the info. 

Regardless, it looks like this will be a really cool/fun add-on - I just wish it had been announced earlier, just to keep the excitement levels up for this GREAT game.  :)
