    No, this is not played when the charge is declared but when the unit is charged which is a notable distinction.

    The unit moves into contact, and before they make their Attack with the Charge...

    I'm not quite sure comparing them to Flayed Men is fair, as Flayed Men are a neutral unit and cavalry to boot. They're going to pay more for the flexibility of an extra maneuver before their attack....

    I haven't found 50 point games to take much more time than 40 point games. Stuff dies quicker, and you're talking (at most) anywhere from ~6-12 additional activations in a game, assuming that by turn...

    I think unfortunately since people already have the miniatures that this stat card is final.

    That said, I don't see a huge problem with the current Unsullied. Uber units tend to be the...

    "What is Dead May Never Die" sounds like a card similar to Jon Snow's, the "pass a morale test to not die" one. It might also be some sort of "must fail 2 saves to take 1 wound", or perhaps the unit...

    That might be a once per game NCU ability (or perhaps even a "kill NCU to do" one").

    In a similar vein, though, I was thinking it would be interesting if, to represent looting/raiding, either an...

    Thinking about this a bit more, here are a few more (totally speculative) ideas for Greyjoys:

    Core infantry pretty similar to Bolton Cutthroats (5+ save, 7+ morale, 3+ to hit with a decent attack...

    I would have likely pictured them working around some vicious/morale mechanics and elite light infantry. Maybe some "loot token" mechanic sort of like the Dark Eldar's old "power from pain", or else...

    From how it looks, a lot of the Stannis-loyal attachments seem to promote just having lots of units of Wardens to survive and tough out enemy attacks while the bulk of your damage comes from your own...

    I think that they have to be the same trigger, I can't think of a meaningful distinction between the two. Though the Baratheon player still could play their card it would be a waste to do so.
  12. I actually think since the active player chooses...

    I actually think since the active player chooses which effects resolve first in the case of ties, the unit retreats and the Baratheons are left standing there assuming the trigger is the same.

    I'm not so sure that the unit can still use Orders as nothing is explicitly affecting the unit in question, just that Orders in general may not be used for the remainder of the turn. The use of "your...

    This is a really tough and nuanced question to answer, oh boy.

    This is going to largely be influenced by my perspective as a Stark player predominantly. Generally speaking, each faction wants 2...

    Whether or not they're worth 9 anymore, they're certainly worth 7 and saying otherwise is a bit of a bad faith criticism of the nerf. Dothraki screamers are 6, and over Dothraki screamers you get:

    I think OG Flayed Men in the context of an all-Bolton army would be appropriate (sort of). I think no matter what they should not have a 2+ save, but even in the edition before these latest revealed...

    Giants are best avoided unless you can kill them in one (maybe 2) activations. Best advice is to retreat from them whenever possible and avoid doing damage that won't kill them before they get to...

    It still refers to "that attack", not "that unit" so I believe the Vets will still be able to trigger their order and charge as they haven't lost all abilities, only the attack has.

    I think because it is phrased as "the attack loses all abilities", and Vets trigger their order after a ranged attack Martial Superiority would not stop them from charging.

    I think they didn't want to add another 3-4 cavalry models to the box for the same price/have to increase the price considerably over the other starter boxes. It's unfortunate, but honestly I just...

    I hadn't considered his synergies with Flayed Men, that's a good point and since Flayed Men are still cav they go well with the rest of the tactics cards as well.

    As for Jorah's specific cards,...
