The Lost legion was previously stated as not being available at Essen, but I just saw this post on OG:

"Mage Knight Lost Legion Expansion – Wizkids (as of 9/30, now reported as possible at Essen)"

Did I miss somthing? If true this is great news

That is not happening. I have that confirmed by WizKids representative. Though even without it I could tell you it's not true as I've been checking cardboard layout a week ago so it's just being printed as we speak. And it takes 2 months since printing to get the games to EU/US from China.

Sorry to disappoint you, but there will be just one demo copy.

I just finished watching the movie, the only thing that came to my mind was 'where can I pre-order this'. Now, I wonder how the assassination ability works. :-)

I think it was already explained: wounds from enemies with "assassination" cannot be assigned to your units, but go always to your hand (i.e. damage the hero).

atm I'm most interested in the changed cards, like those supposedly to strong (Wings of Night and Banner of Fear), or perhaps the weaker ones (In Need, Heroic Tale, Into the Heat, Restoration/Rebirth, Meditation/Trance, Amulet of Sun, Amulet of Darkness).
Especially Wings of Night/Banner of Fear, which aren't only to strong when playing the expansion, but already in the base game when playing with high city levels.

I'm most interested in each Mage Knight's new starting card.

My guess is Norowas gets an upgraded March and Tovak gets an upgraded Rage.

About Tovak you are right. I can't remember the exact effect but it was a variant of rage. I can't remember the other cards, sorry.

Yeah, I've thought about this a bit.

Arythea - Mana Draw, white.
Goldyx - Crystallize, blue.

That leaves green and red. Rage and March for Tovak/Norowas makes the most sense, by far. Threaten is red, which isn't Norowas' thing, but more importantly... He's already risky if no buyable units show up, this'd make it even worse!

I also think Wolfhawk may have a "+2 physical or +1 siege" skill.

Opinion is divided over Into the Heat. I happen to agree that it is a weak card because it is often useless during the important early stages of the game.

Just have a look at http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/838987/poll-about-cards

actually, I voted "average" myself, but I'm still not convinced by this game. Most often, +2 (+3) per unit just doesn't even out the fact that you have to take all the wounds to your hand - except for those few battles where this could be the decisive factor of if it is the last battle in the game.
I like to get this card, but I recognize that I tend to use it only in the most desperate situations.

I think the poll is pretty biased toward solitaire play. It's a better card in solitaire play.

Just to correct this: Tovak has an upgraded Improvisation, not Rage.

Heh. Despite the fact that I ogled the expansion for quite a while when I was helping out, I don't know the new cards. I do know about the new land tiles and the new enemy abilities, but those are icons and easier to remember than text, I suppose.
