Here is the news, direct from Go there for pictures galore.

Exact powers and stats are not yet known, but we do have some clues cobbled together from various sources. Official names of each army card are also still a mystery....the names I use are just stand-ins.

Ninjas & Samurai...two unique squads of three figures each. Both fight for Einar. Samurai have an ability that grants them +3 move if they attack at the end of that move....they also have the popular counterstrike ability. Ninjas have an ability that allows them to disappear...what that means is anyone's guess at this point. one of the ninjas is female, just the tip of the iceberg for those that lament the lack of a lot of female characters in this game.

Warriors & Soulborgs....two common squads...three female "Amazon" type warriors, and four robotic rats. The rats look to be the first "Small" figures and fight for Utgar. They have disengage and the ability to dodge an attack and then move four spaces away. The Amazons are rumored to fight for Ullar, but no power or stat info is known at this time.

Soulborgs....two common squads....four Vydar robots that look very similar to the Gladiatrons from wave four. They are strongly rumored to be the "Blastatrons" mentioned in the online bio for the Gladiatrons. They are clearly ranged figures, but nothing else is known. The other squad is three double-based large cybernetic wolves....they could be Vydar or Utgar. Nothing more is known.

Agents & unique squad of agents and three unique gladiator heroes. The agents are of the "Charlies Angels" mold, and are dressed in white jumpsuits and carrying guns...clearly ranged units. The Gladiators are three separate of them has a large net and trident, leading folks to speculate that he has some sort of "Net" special ability that could immobilize one or more opponents. Time will tell. Agents are strongly indicated for Jandar, as based on info from the various promotional comics. Gladiators could fight for various generals...strong suspicion that at least one is Einar.

All four packs come with two 2-hex snow terrain pieces.
