January 4, 2015 - 8:10pm
lords of war banner Black Box Games Publishing and ACD Distribution announced American distribution for Lords of War including three dual deck packs and a new weather and terrain pack that can be used with all the faction decks. Here’s a breakdown of each release: lords of war Lords of War: Orcs versus Dwarves
“These factions are differentiated by their exclusive cards and strategies; the Dwarf faction plays more defensively, using some Ranged cards and powerful Berserker units to pick-off assailants, while the Orc army encourages players to attack more vigorously, often committing kamikaze moves to their tactical advantage.”
lords of war elves Lords of War: Elves versus Lizardmen
“The factions in this deck are the Elves, which feature strong cavalry units and archers but a relatively weak infantry, and the Lizardmen, who are the most flexible Lords of War army and are best used to disrupt and counter enemy attack strategies.”
lords of war templar Lords of War: Templars versus Undead
“The Templar faction is based around a heavily armored infantry and mobile palisades. The Undead meanwhile contain a stark range of defensive and offensive units, including zombies which roam across the battlefield.”
Lords of War: Terrain and Weather Pack
“The Weather and Terrain Expansion Pack is compatible with all Lords of War armies and enhances Lords of War play with two new modes: Weather, which sees players putting their tactics to the test against the elements, and Terrain, which enables players to build their own battlefields."
