Other than edits/errata in the rules and on the cards, I have been trying to gather information on the changes to the block labels between editions. If this is posted elsewhere, I must have missed it. Could this not be added to the current FAQ?

Block changes between editions:

1) Hobelars, English King, Wallace, Moray, French Knights, and Norse get a black cross, delineating that they are removed from the game when eliminated via combat, blocked retreat, or Event.

2)The Scots infantry unit Fraser has been upgraded from C2 to C3.

3) Northumber and Lancaster are missing their 1-pips.



Anything else to be added?

Regarding the French Knights' movement rating of 2...

1st Edition: the sticker shows it correctly
2nd Edition: the sticker is missing the movement rating (this is the edition I own)
3rd Edition: the movement rating is back again

However, according to the Columbia Games site, clicking on the link for the labels for the HotS blocks show the correct labels for Northumber and Lancaster. I am considering getting either this game or Julius Caesar, and I'd like to know if the sticker glitch has been fixed.

C.J., if you get the latest edition (Third Edition), all should be well. Everything should be correct and up-to-date. And even my First Edition, with its changes, doesn't look too bad.

Let us know which game you decide to get. Not an easy choice!

The (Scots) Etterick Archers now have a movement rate of 3 (originally it was 2).

No missing pips on Lancaster or Northumber on my 3rd edition.
