A warhorn sounded in the far distance, a deep mournful note that chilled the soul.
-A Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin
Perched atop the Iron Throne, Robert Baratheon and the allies of House Baratheon must stand ready to defend their power, for war is inevitable in Westeros. Always prepared for battle, House Baratheon sends skilled warriors, inspiring commanders, and a mysterious priestess to lead hordes of veteran soldiers into battle. With chivalrous knights, sneaky smugglers, and crafty rangers to lend their skills in battle, this Great House stands ready to meet any threat.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the House Baratheon Army Expansion. With this exciting expansion, a brand new army enters Battles of Westeros for the first time! Containing 110 detailed plastic miniatures, this substantial expansion allows you to choose from eight stalwart commanders. You’ll also find six potent unit types with which to wage war, forming the backbone of the army. Also inside this expansion is the first Epic Battle, the monumental battle for Blackwater Bay, along with rules for Alliance battles for as many as eight players.
A monumental army
March into battle alongside Renly, Stannis, or even King Robert Baratheon and other commanders from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. Complete with unique abilities to influence the battle, these leaders give Baratheon players a wealth of tactical options on the battlefield.
Smash your opponents with skillful Baratheon units. The Honorable Knights of Nightsong seek to test themselves in battle, refraining from taking advantage of an enemy in a weakened state, while the well-rounded Storm’s End Sentinels Pursue their adversaries. Meanwhile, the devout Army of the Light are Zealots who refuse to retreat from any battle.
Introducing Epic Battles
The bloody struggle for King’s Landing takes place in the first multi-stage Epic Battle, the Battle of Blackwater. Testing even the bravest of generals over three stages, this scenario recreates one of the largest and most important battles in the War of the Five Kings. Choose your side and reenact the deadly Battle of Blackwater.
The first Epic Battle in Battles of Westeros takes place on the stunning Blackwater map board. This new map board features terrain printed directly onto it. Wage war over a large river and fortified city, and with the Epic Battle special rules, you can use wildfire to destroy attacking ships and catapults to defend the city walls.
The House Baratheon Army Expansion also includes rules for Allied battles that allow up to eight players to join the fray. These battles are so large, you’ll need two maps to play them! Simply use the reverse side of the Blackwater map board and the map board from the core set to create a massive battlefield and you and your bannermen can take to the field.
As war draws near, are King Robert Baratheon and the armies of the black stag strong enough to defend the Iron Throne? Find out with the House Baratheon Army Expansion.
