“Every lord has need of a beast from time to time... a lesson you seem to have learned, judging from those clansmen of yours."
     - Tywin Lannister, speaking to Tyrion Lannister

Tribes of the Vale, an ally force expansion set for Battles of Westeros, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! Born in the cruel climate of the Mountains of the Moon, the clansmen of the Stone Crows, Black Ears, and Burned Men are of a violent breed. Uncivilized, uncouth, and unrefined, these men and women live to kill, and they do it well.

Fearsome Leaders

The Tribes of the Vale expansion adds three new ally commanders to diversify your Battles of Westeros experience. Shagga, Son of Dolf is a ruthless barbarian of the Stone Crows, capable of wielding two massive battle axes better than some men handle one. Timett, Son of Timett earned his place as the Red Hand of the Burned Men by taking out his own eye. A fearless expert swordsmen, Timett rarely fails to kill anything he sets out to. Finally, Chella, Daughter of Cheyk is a vicious woman, decorating herself with the ears of her enemies.

New Units, Mechanics, and Scenarios

In addition to these new commanders, Tribes of the Vale introduces three new unit types, new keywords, new terrain types, and a rulebook with three new scenarios, aligning House Lannister with these devastating clansmen.

Similar to the Lords of the River ally expansion, the units and commanders in Tribes of the Vale are ally forces represented by tan miniatures, and can be used to supplement a primary House’s forces - such as House Lannister or, if using the Skirmish rules, House Stark.

Set in the rich and vibrant world of George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, Battles of Westeros is a board game of tactical battlefield combat for two players. With scenarios that include beloved characters and settings, players can recreate the most significant battles from The War of the Five Kings.
