Welcome back for another Release Review! (I’ll admit, I feel like I just wrote the last one). This time we’re going to go deep on some interesting and popular objective sets, so get ready to go. As I recently spoiled one of the sets, I’m just going to provide a link to that discussion so I don’t bore you with the same review again. And I also want to try out something else new: a brief review of the pack as a whole, before the jump.
I think 99% of players will buy this pack exclusively for Grand Admiral Thrawn, and that’s totally fine. As individual cards go, Thrawn is one of the best, and if it weren’t for the objective set system I think everyone would be running Navy just for that one card. But does the whole set back him up? Well I’m not so sure. I think Thrawn’s set will be overrated in the immediate future, and I think the Nar Shadaa Drift set will be underrated. I think I really like the Imperial Bureaucracy set but it probably doesn’t have enough power to justify a slot in a mono-Sith deck (though it’s usually not too hard to find room for a one-of). Owen Lars can be powerful, but Jedi decks have tons of competition so he’ll probably get left in the binder unless people have a preference for the character or holocron-like effect. And while the Duros Smugglers are the pilots you want to be running alongside Rogue Squadron X-Wings… is it good enough to make up for the subpar units? As a whole, this is a pretty balanced and average pack that brings a LOT of support sets to every faction except Rebels (who get left out) and Navy (who get the best unit on the Dark Side). Want some support? Follow the Chain of Command!
This is a special video I’ve been looking forward to uploading, so I hope you enjoy! I do apologize for how fast I’m talking in this one–I was trying to fit a lot of commentary in without having to slow the video down at all. Still working out this new format!
Welcome! This week I’ve got two videos scheduled, so I figured I could release one a couple days early. This time the quality should be a bit better, but I’m also messing with my OBS settings to make the video quality even sharper for future videos. Enjoy!
“Your shrines will burn, your streets run with blood, your false idols shattered, your people slaughtered by the thousands, your very planet torn apart… and the barest fraction of my hatred will be satisfied.” – Ba’ar Zul the Hate-Bound
He is an angry chap, as you would expect from a warrior of Khorne. Speaking of which, it’s about bloody time that there was a Khorne warlord (pun intended)! Whilst the fortunes and power of the various Chaos gods have changed over the years, Khorne, and by extension the World Eaters, have always been popular. Personally, I used to have a World Eaters army way back when, so it will come as no surprise that I was very happy to see this preview. Read full post →
“When did I say you can run? Get back to dying you cowards!” – Broderick Worr
That may not be Broderick Worr in the art above, but it does show Commissars looking awesome (it’s Yarrick by the way). In some of my recent articles I have been talking about the Astra Militarum
and their popularity (and also competitiveness), and I suggested that the upcoming warlord, Broderick Worr
, might make them a bit more popular. In this article I am going to have a look at the Commissar and his signature cards in a bit more detail. Read full post →
Whelp, it’s been a while but we finally got Evasive Maneuvers in, and I’ve been able to get a review together. Hopefully the next one should be more timely! In the meantime, let’s see what we’ve got out of this pack…
I said I had another video to record commentary for, but I didn’t expect to have the free hour & recording space so soon! This time I’m back, piloting my Scum Maincrushers deck against a Desperate Rebels build. It’s a long and agonizing game, as Maincrushers often are, but it’s fun and interesting and you get to see how the whole deck works! Enjoy!
I know I promised a video, and while I’ve been super busy I finally got a chance to record commentary and get it uploaded. I have another one recorded, so I’m going to try to get some commentary out of it when I get the chance, and then we can see what the Maincrushers have to say. Enjoy!
