By CROM--I love this game!

Being a huge Conan fan, I have absolutely no regret, despite paying the most I've ever spent on a game (King pledge to Canada, the shipping and foreign exchange rate killed me).

The production value is top-notch (and I haven't even painted the minis yet! Can't wait, but gotta learn and still gearing up).
I love the artwork and the boards are sublime. It's easy to teach, very fluid, dynamic game play, and feels very cinematic!
I had a little worry about replayability, but once I cracked this beast open those doubts evaporated. SO many extra characters, and with 6 maps, i'm already itchy to create my own scenario. Something in the tavern, with cups of ale that Conan can drink (increasing his battle exertion +1, or adding +1 die to combat, but -1 movement per drink), and gotta throw in the camel, maybe have them KO it as part of the mission parameters.

I had one question about Line of Sight. Say you want to do a ranged attack two spaces away. The line of sight is legal, but the space in-between has units in it, can you shoot through them? I would imagine with multiple units you wouldn't be able to, but what if there is one person there, can still shoot around him to next space? I'm a bit murky on this, and have no other miniature game experience for reference.

Units only effect ranged attacks if they are in the same space as the shooter. AKA hindrance +1 for every unoccupied enemy model.

You'd need to see hindrance not as "Units blocking your line of sight" - you'll find an opening soon enough, you're an epic fighter after all - but rather as "Units trying to hack you to pieces while you're taking your shot" which is a totally different beast
