I have the base units for my upcoming fantasy wargame almost ready. Some of you already know it - its called gods & minions and will be a collectible dice game that uses dice to display the troops (yes, a crazy idea - even more crazy trying to build this thing actually!).
So, here we have a list of the three starting races. There are currently 8 units per race, but i want 4 additional units for each race and you could help me brainstorming! as the base units are already done, i need something shiny that really stands out and is fun to collect, but it may not be too "uber".
that would be 36 dice in the coreset, wich is enough to provide the players with something to collect and play in a while. i would like to do more, but this is also a cost issue.
1. Halfbeard, light infantry
3. Ram Rider Cavalry
7. gunner with musket
8. longbeard, heavy elite infantry
2. wood elf savage
7. wolfkin / elf-wolf crossover
8. bearkin / elf-bear crossover
NIGHT GOBLINS (working title)
2. wolf rider
3. raider, light infantry
4. warrior, heavy infantry
7. fanatic, ball & chain
8. kamikaze, with bomb on back
Okay and now the real challenge, the new units may NOT be of certain types - as these types are reserved for future expansions of the game. the forbidden types are:
A. Big War-Machines or Artillery
C. Personalities or unique Characters
D. Elementals or big monsters
E. standard bearers or musicians
I am looking forward to your creative ideas (this could become a cool brainstorming thread actuallly).
