A Song of Ice & Fire: Kickstarter läuft
Der neue Kickstarter von Cool Mini or Not läuft und ist finanziert.
A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.
The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players!

These are the options you have when activating a unit:
Maneuver: Freely Pivot your unit, then move it up to its Speed stat and Pivot again.
March: Move a unit twice its Speed Stat, then Pivot.
Charge: Freely Pivot your unit, then move it up to its Speed stat plus 1 die, then Attack!
Attack: Shift your position if desired, then attack the engaged enemy!
Retreat: Roll a Panic test, then Move back twice and Pivot.
The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted.
Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain.

However, wars are not fought solely on the battlefield. Players may also choose to spend points on various Non-Combat Units (NCU), such as Tyrion Lannister and Catelyn Stark. These individuals work behind the scenes, influencing the course of events through their skills at politics, negotiation, or battlefield strategy.
The Tactics Board brings intrigue and politics into the field of battle

After constructing armies, players take to the field in one of five unique Game Modes, each giving different strategic objectives. Victory in these Game Modes may consist of controlling objectives across the battlefield, outlasting your opponent in prolonged siege-warfare, completing hidden objectives, and much more!
Preview of the cardboard components of the Starter Set
During the game, players take alternating turns activating the various units they have brought to the battleground. Will you command your Umber Berserkers to lead a devastating charge against your opponent’s Lannister Halberdiers?

Or perhaps have Catelyn Stark take an action onto the Tactics Board, utilizing her Non-Combat skills to rally Bannermen to your cause, restoring lost units? These are the choices you’ll have to make, deciding whether a battlefield assault or a political move is the next step toward victory.
You’ll have access to more than the units’ abilities alone. Each House comes with its own Tactics Deck: cards containing strategies and abilities to aid you in your fight. Each Houses’ deck is unique, reflecting that faction’s preferred methods. With House Lannister, subterfuge and manipulation are every bit as powerful as raw strength. Their deck focuses on disrupting enemy units and strategies, sowing chaos across their ranks. Meanwhile, the brave and loyal Bannermen of House Stark are more focused on the field itself. Flanking maneuvers and swift re-positioning are backed by a hearty amount of raw Northern Ferocity!
Your Tactics Deck will be further expanded by your choice of Army Commander: a powerful Hero you have selected to lead your forces into battle! They will add cards of their own to your Tactics Deck, augmenting your strategic arsenal. Do you prefer the cunning counter-play of Jaime Lannister: The Kingslayer? Or if a more direct approach is to your liking, then Gregor Clegane: The Mountain will give you the offensive punch you desire. Your choice of Commander is a customization option that will radically change how your army plays.
