Elves seem alsmost too cliche Very Happy so perhaps undead or something really off the wall like dragon men (to coincide with a dragon creature...), commercially I guess it'll have to be elves.

Right. Because BattleLore has been anything but cliche so far! Wink

At this point ANYTHING NEW!!!!(even Elves Embarassed)

Elves & Undead I think were promised(well its been so long
I think they were Confused ).

It would be nice if DoW could put out the world setting
& campaign system to go along with any new releases.

DoW's last Battlelore post last year suggested that the new expansions were being delayed to integrate the world setting aspects that the online community kept asking for.

As a gamer who has never understood the premium others place on world setting in a non-RPG board game, this feels like a case of "careful what you wish for."

The answer is undead. With necromancy lore cards.

Also could I have a War of Roses Expansion too. I want official cannons for battlelore.

Elves is the only race missing from the Tolkien canon. We must have them first. Cliche? No - pastiche me thinks. Wink

PS - Of course undead and dragons/creatures would be great and so would heroes... after Elves. Very Happy

I would really like to see Elves released, although i am not a big fun of them. However, once we have the models we can make a lot of variant armies as yangtze has posted here:

http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/msg/?th=14637&start=0

You have the elves and then we can make, wood elves with better archers, High Elves with better armour, Drow Elves... and the list goes on.

Give us the models, we will make the rest Very Happy .

I agree Elves, and the more cliched the better Smile

And more creatures!

This is so true it's a bit disconcerting... for me.

I hope the pause is simply due to competing projects but in the end DoW has done a really good job of compartmentalizing all the expansions. Play what you like ignore what you like. I wouldn't think meta-plot would be any different.

I thought I had seen a posting from someone at DoW (don't hold me to this though - could be bad memory!) that after getting all the aspects down for Dwarfs and Goblins, that the next army would be undead. Could have been on BGG perhaps ?!?

Again, don't hold me to it, but I seem to recall something of that nature.

There was no commitment to Undead being "the next" race up. I believe the statement was merely committing to do Undead at some point.

Colt, I remember there was some mention of the Undead being released at some point, just didn't remember if was the next one up or not.

Thanks for the clarification
