Boneripper, quick quick. Bite slay kill!
The Warhammer LCG is getting a dose of warpstone. Sneaking onto the scene are the vile forces of the Skaven! These ratlike parodies of men are some of the most vicious fighters the Warhammer world has ever seen. The Skaven would easily take over the world, if they could stop fighting themselves long enough to do it.
Each race gets new cards, and each side sees new allies.
The forces of Order gain some powerful new tactics, such as Infiltrate for the Empire and Stand Your Ground for the Dwarfs. Tyriel, a new hero for the High Elves, forces an opponent to reconsider his attack if he has limited units to send.
Destruction’s mighty followers gain the might of Malus Darkblade, of the Dark Elves. A master of the blade, this Dark Elf Hero will lay waste to any unit too cowardly to face him on the fields of battle. Tzeentch exerts his influence by granting Chaos the use of Bolt of Change! This spell turns a development into a unit, giving Chaos some extra firepower, or setting up a foe to have his development killed on the fields of battle.
In addition the forces of Destruction gain the duplicitous help of the Skaven. This first pack features the services of Greyseer Thanquol, Clan Rats, and the awe-inspiring majesty of the Warp Lightning Cannon!
The forces of Order see their ranks swell with the presence of Witch Hunters. The first to appear is Marius the Righteous. This heroic character is able to deal a devastating blow to any corrupted unit.
The Skavenblight Threat is the first pack in the Corruption Cycle, a set of six linked packs highlighting the forces of the Skaven, Witch Hunters, and the seductive arts of magic.
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 -Dwarfs, High Elves, Empire- or the forces of Destruction -Orcs, Chaos, Dark Elves- as they seek to extend their empire to include the entire Old World.

Skavens don't exist, silly you.[/quote]
It's true :D
I picked up the early release at GenCon....I own a store in Central Wisconsin....Dorkfathers Cards and Comics, LLC...I have been demoing it nonstop since getting back....I have presold at least a dozen copies of the game already and haven't even hit ten percent of our regular customers....the reaction has been nothing but positive. so go to your local gamestore and see if anyone picked up an early copy....This game and its mechanics are awesome..
Robuzz....I have been playing the dwarves. You will love them.
LCGs are generally expanded upon with monthly packs of 40 FIXED cards. 3x of 10 cards, 1x of 10 cards. This mixes some of the best parts of a CCG (customization, evolving metagame) while removing the randomness and huge moneysink required if you want to get every card in a CCG.
I have to be either a bit thick or just not found it... This is a LCG, right? So, there are no "booster packs" to gain, no additional starters to gather, just buy the core and expansion and have all the cards? If so, then this game is a go for me.
Can someone please enlighten me? Thanks.
Yeah just tease us with the expansion pack BEFORE the game is released! Jealous! :O
Looks nice, a really interesting expansion even when I haven't see the core set yet.
Still waiting for the core set to come out!!!
*makes grabby hand gestures*
Rats the size of men! You must be joking! :)
Marius the Righteous for the win, obviously! :D
Bring me my giant slave rats and my Doom Wheel, it's time to go above ground...
