The Celts reference card is missing a couple of traits that a couple of its Troops have

For example, the extra +1 wounds trait and extra +1 shooting die trait. These are on a couple troop cards but not on the Celts reference card.

I know that these are on the Romans reference card, but it's annoying not having it right in front of you, especially for new players.

Misprint or intentional?

I have to assume it's a misprint. Send a note to the publisher; perhaps it will get fixed in any new printings. It would be even better if the publisher could make a PDF of the revised cards available.

Yes, it was a misprint (and my fault, since I proofread the drafts). In the next set there will be a comprehensive player aid.

Hi Paolo,

Next set meaning 'Elves v Orcs', right? When will that be out in the UK?

Just sign me up now for all your expansions...

What is that whirling hypnotic trait on the elephants in the unofficial Punic army?

Great game

Regards,

Fentum

Hi Fentum, thanks!

Orcs vs Elves has been announced for August..

About the Punic trait, you should ask Francisco on his specific thread. I didn't have the chance to play it yet, but I think it's something about "panic", and loss of control of elephants when they are wounded.

BTW, I love all your home made armies :-)

I find that a large wooden wedge plus a hammer can resolve that tricky situation.

Thanks Paolo

It may be an oversight, but you can see the Celtic traits card is pretty "full" already.

My suggestion for improvement would be to cover the traits in detail in the rules-- so you can say as much as you need to about them--and then have just brief, reminder text on the card, so you can fit more traits into the size you are using.
