Warcry

From 1d4chan
NewWarcryLogo.jpg


A specialist game for Age of Sigmar and successor to Skirmish, Warcry was initially described in previews to incorporate aspects of both Kill Team and Warhammer Underworlds, though the end result bears little resemblance to either (which isn’t a bad thing). It looks to offer a much more complex and nuanced take on the various Chaos factions of Age of Sigmar.

The Game[edit]

Seeking the favor and blessing of the Everchosen, warbands of Chaos cultists and other denizens of the Mortal Realms clash for supremacy within the Varanspire, a hub of activity at the heart of the Eightpoints (formerly known as the Allpoints before Chaos fully up and moved in), which happens to be a certain somebody's seat of power.

So far the following mechanics and characteristics has been confirmed:

  • As with all their games lately, Open, Narrative and Matched play modes.
  • The game is played in a rather small area, around 20" x 30" with lots of scenery, similar to Kill Team.
  • The standard game generation is handled by four decks of cards that determine scenery disposition, deployment, objectives and game's special rules. Specific sets of scenery have exclusive cards that are added to the decks and Matched play have special scenarios with deployments and special rules.
  • Deployment is made dividing the warband in three groups: Dagger, Shield and Sword. Each group's size can vary from 1 model to half the models of the warband, with Shield being a third of the warband's models at the least. Also, a warband must be between 3 and 15 models. Depending of the deployiment, some of the groups may appear later in the battle.
  • The movement is rather free-range allowing to climb scenery, pass doors, jump (or falling off) from platforms... And in some cases the base's size doesn't matter much as long as the model is not Gargantuan (a.k.a monsters).
  • Attacking is done in a single roll: you throw as many dice the attack has and if you succeed the roll, does damage. Depending of the Strength of the attack and the Toughness of the target you can go from 3+ to 5+, with 6's being Critical hits. You do damage directly for each successful dice (no armor save here, folks) and Criticals do even more damage.
  • Instead of the tried-and-true methods of armybooks and regular profiles, the game goes the way of many skirmish games of late like Malifaux, and all the rules of a particular warband and their models are printed in cards instead of the Core rulebook: the kind of units available with the special rules of the units in the reverse and cards that detail all the unit's stats. The warband boxed sets include a complete set of cards for each type of fighter included in the box, and there are decks you can buy to take a warband from an age of sigmar faction.
    • The units have locked equipment, determined in their cards but some units have different cards with different equipment which is more prevalent in the non-Chaos warbands. For example, the Iron Legionnaires of the Iron Golems can be equipped with one-hand weapons and shields, two hammers or a whip and hammer.
  • The game sports a weird as fuck Initiative roll, which is done at the top of each battle round in the Hero Phase. Let's do it slowly: at the beginning of each Hero Phase, each player rolls 6D6, then they separate their dice not based on Successes like 3+, nor highest rolls, but by the number of dice results that are repeated Yup, is as weird as it sounds, but it's also kind of like a mini-game at the beginning of each round. Those dice that don't repeat are Singles and the player with the most Singles wins Initiative for the battle round. The dice that repeat are Doubles, Triples or Quad, depending if they repeat twice, three or four times respectively. These pairings of dice are used as fuel for your warband's Abilities, and are, ironically, referred to as ability dice. Not only do you need to keep the ability dice or record what doubles/triples/quads you got for the remainder of the battle round, you also need to keep or record the actual numbers you got, as they can also have an effect on your Abilities. Once Initiative is determined, Singles can be discarded.
    • Tied Initiative: In the case of a tie, player's do not reroll the whole thing. They just roll-off and the player with the highest result wins. Why not just do this anyway? Cause you are a little more than a mortal who cannot comprehend ahem Cause the initial roll of 6D6 determines your ability dice, and you don't get a reroll on that.
    • Wild Dice/Stealing the Initiative: In the Hero Phase you also have the Wild dice. This is a single die you get each round to add to any place in the roll, either adding another Single or upgrading any doubles into Triples, or Triples into Quads. Any Wild dice not spent are kept to the next turn. This gives the game an interesting layer of strategy that relies on both randomness and using in-the-moment chances, which pleases you-know-who (this is about Chaos, any surprises?). So you might find yourself weighing up what's more important, stealing the Initiative, or improving your ability dice.
  • Abilities are Warcry's stratagems. Player's can use either ONE of their warband's Abilities or ONE of the Core Book's Universal Abilities when they activate one of their fighters. Now this is why it is important to keep your ability dice and what numbers you got exactly. To use an Ability with the Doubles keyword, you spend a double by discarding a pair of ability dice that came up with the same number. Same treatment for Triples and Quads. Secondly, some Abilities will mention the value of the ability dice: this means actual dice number that was repeated for each of your Doubles and so on. So for instance, if you use an Ability that deals an amount of damage equal to the value of the ability dice you use to activate it, and you use a pair of 5's, the damage that the Ability will deal is 5.
    • Spending Down: You can also spend a Triple to use a Double Ability, or a Quad to use either a Triple or Double, but the excess dice will be discarded, so it's not like you can split your Quads into Doubles by just using 2 of the dice and leaving 2.

It should be noted that there is a pretty steep power disparity between the "pure" Chaos warbands which were designed and developed specifically for Warcry and the AoS warbands who merely received some warband cards so that GeeDubs could siphon more £££ out of us lowly mortals. With the release of the second wave of warband cards, it doesn't seem like this issue is getting resolved anytime soon. In fact it appears to be getting worse. Keep this in mind if you are planning on getting into it.

[FAQ and Errata ]

Chaos(?) Warbands[edit]

An interesting detail that ties all the warbands together is the fact they all know little to nothing about the dark gods, referring to them with pseudo names, titles, or even worshipping lesser/greater daemons as the actual gods themselves. Those who travel to the Eightpoints see Archaon-senpai as a physical embodiment of Chaos and fight for his approval. Interestingly enough, a new non-chaos warband has been revealed which could indicate a trend for future releases.

Non-Warcry Only Warbands[edit]

In addition to the eight original warbands duking it out in the myriad of locales of the Eightpoints, many other groups of warriors have been announced in the form of Warband Cards. These card sets will allow the following factions to join in the battles, bringing all new combinations and flavours of combat to the Varanspire! Unfortunately, we aren't getting new minis for them though, which is a huge bummer, seeing as the Chaos minis look awesome However, you can always use the Warhammer Underworlds' ones when applicable.

The First wave added nine warbands from the AoS army list.

The second wave has added nine more additional factions, as well as prebuilt warbands for the Nighthaunt, Gloomspite Gitz, and Stormcast Vanguard Chamber.

And not long after a third wave included eight more factions.

There is a current total of 34 factions.
