Song of Blades: Hammer and Forge

Recommended Posts

Advanced Song of Blades & Heroes is a new edition of the game that, among other things, opens up more tactical options. It's more complex than SBH has been in the past, but it's still a pretty streamlined game. The core rules for ASBH are contained in the Fightin' Fungi rulebook. The new dwarf book won't have the core rules, but they will also be available as a separate, stand-alone book.

 

And I'll say what I did when the Fightin' Fungi KS was underway: SBH is an ideal game system for all of those minis from the past two Bones Kickstarters, and for the Bones 3 minis once they arrive next year. It may be the best skirmish-level fantasy ruleset out there (next to Warlord, of course!  :;): ).

How does it work with the supplements, like Song of Gold and Darkness, for example? Or did they just mash all of those into this?

Dang it, I felt all smart answering your first question. And then you had to go and ask a follow-up.  :lol: 

 

In this case, I'll have to defer to someone else who knows more about this than I do.

Songs of Blades and Heroes is what started me down the fantasy path, and Reaper Bones are what I used. 

 

Andrea is a great guy and he puts out a good product.  I'll back this kickstarter (who doesn't like dwarves?) but the next time Reaper does one, I'll have to take a loan out on my soul or something...

I'm in, grabbed an early bird Lord of Battle .. but now I'm kind of wish I had grabbed an early bird collector to get the rules too.  As for the minis, the first ones to really catch my eye are the outcast barbarians.

I'm experimenting with the Song of Gold and Darknees and the Song of Deeds and Glory (I edited their Fightin Fungi warband builder).  It looks like they'll fit together nicely, since one adds to the game.  There are some hiccups that I'm playtesting with regards to certain spellcasters, but otherwise I think they'll work just fine.

Agreed!  I plan on using a lot of proxies for Warlord, even though I play with round bases (yes, I know, square are the actual rules in Warlord, but I prefer rounds).

I know a guy about that soul thing...  ::P::   Seriously, I am hoping to relax for a bit on KS.  These are my two KS I'm backing this summer.  I run limited funds as is, and this and Bones 3 really stretched me thin, but I think they will be worth it in the end.

Received my fighting fungi today. Average to good table top quality at a good price. I'm happy.

I am tempted for the rules but my group doesn't seem interested in skirmish games, sadly. I may get the pdfs anyway.

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
