Hey Wild here, and with a bit of a hiatus both here and from Legion (Played Skorne and Convergence for a bit), I decided on Legion of Everblight for MkIII. Just like Kirby I’ll be going over initial impressions and how they feel compared to MkII. However this is with War Room in my hands so this is all from official cards.
Played two games with the full rules over the weekend with Helynna (battle reports coming).
All in all Mk3 feels like… well Mk2. There are a lot of subtle changes, the vast majority we knew about prior to release, but the game from a mechanic perspective feels the same. If you understood Mk2, you’ll understand Mk3. There are lists of changes running around (linked and copied below for the lazy; thank you to PP forum user Dybbuk). Where the newness of the game comes in is from the vast changes in units. From my armies I’m finding a lot of the Menoth units which never saw use, I’m considering. I’m considering a lot more Warcasters from the Menoth and Circle pools, etc. Hopefully this means there will be more variety of warcasters / warlocks and actual army builds on the tabletop.
Following on from the Scyrah musings on Warcasters we now have Warjacks (aka Myrmidons). Remember, this is based upon the spoilers we currently have and without the full Mk3 rules. We are all impatient so must talk about this n
Hyperion – The silly rules around colossals and their secondary weapons have streamlined a bit but the main gun of the Hyperion is unchanged. It’s still a short ranged, large AOE, high POW, critical consume gun of death. Ravyn and Issyria still love this guy in being able to extend range or get a second shot and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in Helynna lists where she can really help out all Warjacks (and particularly Shyeel with her Feat) and try for some Crit Fishing, Ossyan with his Crit Fishing / gunline of death or Garryth with Sentry giving another shot opportunity. Pairs well with AFG for a +2″ RNG in a pinch as well. I’m honestly more excited to see what Helios brings but Hyperion will probably see a little bit more play just from an increased number of warcasters who could benefit his weapon directly.
So, some initial thoughts time. Keep in mind the information we have is not the whole picture. We don’t know all the rules of Mk3 yet and the information we have is clearly not everything. Whether the cards are early playtest versions, second to last versions, etc. so the below is based on that information. That information may change very quickly once the official rules drop so take the below with a grain of salt and for discussion purposes only.
I’ll start with the Warcasters.
CIRCLE INSIDER INFORMATION ADDED
Battlebox casters and contents spoiled here.
Mk3 comes out with rules available June 12 with official release date June 29.
Anything that comes from a card, I will just have the cards uploaded rather than quoting them (click the card to go to bigger picture). Breaks it up nicely too… Let me know if there’s anything missed or you’ve seen (please add a source) and will add :).
First of all, let us look at what the spoilers are to date (I will update this as they come along in pink for easy access):
Working on compiling all the full card spoilers here. I will keep this separate from the officially confirmed statistics just for easy reference in case these are not real or older versions or something in between.
Edit: for now, I’ll link the IMGURs and then I’ll roll through for some summaries :).
We did some filming on the weekend and cannot find the video editor that I was using before – does anyone have a good free video editor that they could recommend? Just doing something really basic in terms of compressing, adding stills and editing the audio (adding music and voiceovers).
Also, I’m not the most graphics savvy so is anyone keen to be immortalised for all eternity at the beginning of 3++ videos to do a 15-20 sec introduction graphic / video? For extra bonus points, adding graphics to screen (i.e. damage tracking, turn counter, etc.).
Cheers guys :).
Posted kindly in our forums because we are lazy and don’t want to make a whole post ;).
Just going through all the photos now and will be listing a summary and photos for reference.
The other spoilers, I’m not going to post as there are some obvious inconsistencies with them (i.e. POW of Ravagore being not what PP have directly spoiled). I’ve got them saved if they turn out to be true but likely they are early playtest versions (I believe).
