Kings of War: Vanguard – Character Cards

By Mantic Games

Kings of War: Vanguard will be launching on Kickstarter soon. Throughout this week, we’ll be exploring the game in more detail and giving you a taste of the rules. In today’s blog, we’re looking at an example of a character card.

A little like The Walking Dead: All Out War, Vanguard will feature character cards that include all the stats you’ll need to play. Each of the heroes, special characters and warriors will come with their own cards, giving players a great reference during the game. When you’re playing a campaign, we’ll also be making a roster sheet, so you can track upgrades/new abilities/xp.

In today’s blog, we’re going to breakdown an example card to explain all the various elements, which will also give you a brief insight into some of the key mechanics of Vanguard. So, without further ado, let’s crack on…

  1. NAME – if they’re a named character, this will be their name, e.g. Grekle Cacklemaster, or if they’re a standard miniature it’ll be the name of the unit.
  2. RACE/TYPE – first up you can see what Race the model is. The model’s Race is also a keyword that may interact with other rules, e.g. a unit could receive a bonus when attacking a Race they particularly despise. Next, models will be one (or more) of the following Types: Grunt, Warrior, Support, Command, Spellcaster, and Large. Type is important when building a Warband and, once again, the Type is a keyword that may interact with other rules.
  3. POINTS – this is how many points it costs to add the model to your warband.
  4. STATS – this is where you can find all the stats for the model.

Speed (SP)

This value shows the distance the model can move in inches.

Ranged (Ra)

This is the target number the model needs to roll to hit a target when using a Ranged attack, typically as part of a Shoot or Cast action.

Melee (Me)

This is the target number the model needs to roll to hit an opponent when making a Melee attack.

Armour (Ar)

This is the target number a model needs to roll to avoid taking damage and suffering wounds.

Nerve (Ne)

This is the target number for any Nerve tests the model needs to take. This will come into play if the Warband is broken or if something unnerving happens.

Wounds (Wn)

This shows the number of wounds the model can suffer before it is removed from play as a casualty. The larger the number, the more resilient (or stupid!) the model is.

Height (H)

The height of a model affects how it interacts with other models and terrain for line of sight and visibility of targets.

5. SPECIAL RULES – here you can see any special rules the model has. Some of these will be similar to those seen in Kings of War, while others will be completely new.

6. POWER DICE – this indicates how many Power Dice the model generates. The Power Dice work a little like the Command Dice in Deadzone and we’ll have a closer look at Power Dice in a future blog.

7. RANGED & MELEE – this shows how many D8s the model rolls during combat. That’s right, we’ll be using D8s for Vanguard, rather than standard D6s. Even better we’ve got exploding D8s during combat to help create some crazy cinematic moments.

8. EQUIPMENT – equipment will play a large part in Vanguard, as warbands uncover and buy new items during a campaign. Some models will come equipped with weapons/items as standard and they’ll be listed here.

9. SPELLS – spellcasters will have their spells listed here. We’ll be expanding the number of spells available, compared to Kings of War. Also, you may notice it says (short) after the spell name. Just like Deadzone, models will be able to perform two short actions or one long action. Some spells will be long actions, while others will be short. What’s more you’ll be able to boost spells to make them more powerful. As spellcasters gain experience in a campaign, they will also get the chance to learn new spells from an advanced spellbook or faction-specific magic.

10. SPECIAL ABILITIES and RULES – if the model has any special abilities they’ll be listed here. Special Abilities use the Power Dice mentioned earlier, so we’ll go into specifics in a future blog.

So, what do you reckon? The card breakdown has given you a little tease of the rules so far and tomorrow we’ll jump into the topic of Power Dice and how they work in Vanguard.

Deadzone 150pts painting challenge update

By Mantic Games

After the relative success of last month’s painting challenge, which saw Andy and Rob compete to paint the Revenant King on Undead Wyrm and Dwarf Steel Behemoth, Rob issued a new challenge. This time he asked the Deadzone community to get involved and paint/play with a 150pt Strike Team before the end of October.

The response on the Deadzone Fanatics Facebook group has been fantastic, with plenty of players getting involved. So, here’s a quick update about how everyone is getting on. Remember, there’s still time to get involved! You can either upload your pics to the Facebook group or send them to robert.burman@manticgames.com

Rob – Veer-myn

Rob had a slight head start, seeing as he came up with the challenge, and is already closing in on that elusive points target. He’s using the latest Veer-myn beta list, which adds the speedy Tunnel Runner. Sadly his chosen colour scheme has given him OTSD (orange traumatic stress disorder – due to the amount of layers it requires to get a smooth finish) and he keeps screaming when he sees the fruit selection in the office kitchen.

Martin – GCPS

Another Mantic employee, this time it’s Rob’s arch nemesis (at least when it comes to Deadzone) Martin. He reckons he’s made more progress than this but keeps ‘forgetting’ to take pictures. The clock is ticking Martin…

Andrew Sharp – Asterians

Official Deadzone Rules Committee mascot Andrew Sharp has been quick out of the blocks with all these Asterians, which he promises he has only just started for the challenge. In fact, he’s already moved on to the Support Drones!

Geoff Burbidge – Forge Fathers

Great progress from Geoff with this tight little Forge Fathers force. The bases in particular are superb and we can’t wait to see the finished results.

Matt Cross – Forge Fathers

Forge Fathers are clearly flavour of the month and Matt has made a great start here. Again, there’s a nice attention to detail on the bases.

Ben Alexander Edwards – Forge Fathers

Ben actually started painting these for a Deadzone campaign at his local store (The Pit) but we’re happy to let him enter the challenge when the results are this good. Great work Ben… they almost look like the studio miniatures!

Mark Engle – Forge Fathers

More Forge Fathers?! Thought it was the Veer-myn that were meant to overwhelm in great numbers. Anyway, nice to see The Helfather making an appearance in the squad and fantastic work overall Mark.

Matthew Cross – Forge Fathers

What?! This wasn’t the 150pts Forge Father painting challenge! And relax… Matthew’s made a good start on his strike team. It’ll be interesting to see what the final colour scheme looks like.

Matthew Mountain – Asterians

Finally! Another faction… Matthew has managed to get his colour scheme nailed down and is about to move on to the rest of his Strike Team. The yellow and purple combo is certainly striking. Can’t wait to see the rest.

Shane Knerl – Plague

Shane had already set himself a(n insane) challenge of painting all his Plague miniatures before Halloween! Forget 150pts, Shane will most likely end up with about 1,500 points. These are his latest offerings.

So, there you have the latest update! On November 1st we’ll choose our favourite entry (remember, you have to play with them too and send us pictures) and the winner will receive a faction starter or faction booster of their choice. Don’t worry, Rob won’t choose himself.
