    It also depends on the game size you play at. In 50pts games those units might be easier to fit in.

    That said, i agree that some units do raise a few question marks.

    It seems that CMON sometimes partially previews cards, like what just occured with the Baratheon Wardens. The first time we saw their card, they didn't have their second ability "target opening". I...

    I agree.

    Perhaps they are tied to the production cycle of the factory they work with, too...and then it's boats and delays can make things go out of stock for a while.

    Most of their games go the way of the dodo (i.e. extinct), especially fast in some case, but Song of ice and Fire was supposed to be very different from their usual model.

    That's more than two cents!

    Good ideas around for sure. I am also glad to see a recommendation for Eddard Stark. I think he is underestimated in some places (from what i read).

    I used them with Tyrion as well. Got them in a good position and forfeited guardsmen activations for extra shots. Their attack is good against anything really. Guardsmen are great for this because...

    I come to the same conclusions as Warlax above: The ability is too easy to control by the opponent.

    I honestly think the Chosen will be exactly like Eddard Stark's Honor Guard: using regular miniatures. They'll probably be included in the Hero Box (with Rattleshirt) rather than the unit box set...

    Let us know how this goes. The situation or opportunity for a "double-zone" combo is not that frequent or optimal, but it's there.

    Quite correct for the Outriders's ability. Littlefingers still creates some unique combos like getting 2x the effect of a zone in the same turn.

    The alignment option is only relative to the target of the Charge during the attack.

    I am really interested in this.

    Once the attacker has chosen 100%, at one point unit B will want to align as well...woudn't that move unit C to 50% towards it since it cannot do it itself?...
