Showing posts from July, 2019
No post this week, I've got a nasty cold.

Apropos of nothing, I must protest at the cartoon Goblin Hunter, for a) being deeply effed up, and b) being cruel to poor little goblins, and c) making 'sick goblin' image searches NSFW.

No pictures, just a thousand words - my reaction to the July BAR update

What the…?

The dust has settled on the most recent, and by far most contentious, BAR update in Warhammer Underworlds’ short history. The restricted list has ballooned with eleven more cards added.

Universal – Objectives Burst of Speed (Power Unbound #25) Warning Shot (Power Unbound #36) Acolyte of the Katophranes (Nightvault #291) Calculated Risk (Nightvault #302) Sorcerous Scouring (Nightvault #371) Universal – Gambits Sorcerous Flourish (Power Unbound #46) Upper Hand (Power Unbound #48) Sphere of Aqshy (Nightvault #451) Universal – Upgrades Spiritbond (Power Unbound #57) Archer’s Focus (Nightvault #476) Well of Power (Nightvault #557)
I’m not going to go into a blow-by-blow account on each of the cards- plenty of smarter folk than I have already done that. I will give a Gitz specific take, on what we’ve lost, and what our foes have lost later, but for now, I just want to talk about my general reaction to the cards as a whole and where it leaves us on the eve of Season 3.

This is by far…

Gitfellas - A Warband Primer

“As Far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a Goblin”

Greetings and welcome back to No Gitz, No Glory! I had another article written, but it was a bit off topic, and a bit rambling- Here’s the TL:DR:

Sorcerous Scouring won’t be restricted ever, and only Cursebreakers should use it.
Feel free to drop me a line if you want to discuss this, but I feel pretty confident Scouring will stick around for a long time, though will only become a big deal if a warband is released with two or more fighters capable of making a spell attack.

The actual article for today is a bit of a deep dive into the members of the Gitz. What each fighter is good at, what they're not, and what upgrades you should and shouldn't put on them.

This article is primarily aimed at players who are just starting off with the Gitz, but more experienced players might find a few interesting bits. It's quite funny too.
What he’s good at:
Being the hero the Goblins deserved, but not the one they needed.

The Object of Power is Power

The Object of Power is Power

Power Unbound is the latest card-only expansion to Warhammer Underworlds, and it’s fair to say it’s going to make a splash. What shiny trinkets will appeal to the Gitz? Read on!

Power Unbound is an expansion aimed at giving more options to your games of Warhammer Underworlds, Sixty cards in size, it adds a warband specific upgrade, ploy and objective to each of the Nightvault bands and 34 universal cards. Now, before I unpack what the Gitz got for Christmas in July, I need to have a little gripe.

I see Power Unbound as two things: One, a jarring example of power creep, and Two, an opportunity gone begging.The power creep stuff is obvious. We’ve got score immediately objectives for when you stand on a couple of objective tokens, miss a shot or cast a spell with a critical success; there’s innate hammers; Inspiration objectives and a few others that make you wonder if they were designed by the same team that released Paradox Armour a few short months ago. But …
