    We now have more info about Joffrey and the Kingsguard. They can be fielded as a unit all their own, or each one as attachments.

    The good news is that none of the units or attachments in the KS are exclusive, just those particular sculpts of said units. So you can look forward to being able to pick them up at some point in the...

    I can’t remember if there was anything stating for or against this thought, so I thought i’d check with others first. Just in case someone remembers something I don’t.

    As the giants ability only comes into effect when Hits are involved, they would take 100% of the Wounds.

    You’re correct about my initial comparison of the conscripts. Without the card in front of me, I miss-remembered the hunter’s stat line.

    Hhmmm. That’s an interesting thought. Removes them from a faction defining feature, but fits thematically. And would allow them to be balanced and priced without taking Vows into account. Which could...
