I was sure the little symbol above the faction symbol on some cards (on the right) was a shield, but since each faction has a different symbol there I'm thinking that means "Loyal." I know it's not strictly tied to the Command Squads (the 8-card pod that goes with the Warlord), because you can see a little symbol on the Tau Gun Drones card, and that doesn't have the sideways Command Squad numbering in the text box.

Now I'm trying to figure out how they could be indicating shields. Maybe that's those pips on the left of "The Fury of Sicarius" and "Tallassarian Tempest Blade" (in Sicarius's Command Squad). That probably makes the most sense, I'm thinking.

I don't see it in the OP. Decks are 50 cards minimum.

Has there been any mention of capital boards? I really don't want to wait for the last set for the tyranids to get an essentially meaningless base!

not really there is a Headquarters for each player.. but this is just a player zone of played cards that are not committed to any planet. I think it is supposed to represent a space hulk or something.. I doubt it has any official board "needed" for game play.

Updated

Added : The suspected "shield Icon"
Added : Minimum Deck Size
Added : Info about the hidden warlord deployment step using the Servo Skull
Change : Stuff about the golden hammer. I agree it needs no value as BD Flory put forward in this thread.

As far as I can see, there is no equivalent to the WH:I Capitol Board.

I'm not sure about the Skulls=Shields, partly I guess because a skull is approximately the opposite of a shield thematically. However, SOMETHING is the shield icon and I'm not sure we've seen another better candidate.

If this was Star Wars they'd look a lot like Edge icons, but I guess that's just graphic layout similarities...

Yeah skulls do not work for me... but the shield Icon I suspect is the small yellow thing above the faction symbol... as seen on this card

I have no idea what the skulls on the ultramarines warlord squad mean. They do not look like Space Marine versions of this same icon as they are in a different place. Still the two marines on the right both have the same little yellow icon as the above card.

Since those little yellow gears(?) always seem to show up on the card's attached to a Warlord I doubt they are the shield icons.

Also since the Eldar signature squad has a unit named Starbane's Council I think we know who the Eldar Warlord will be, Eldorath Starbane. http://wh40k.lexican...dorath_Starbane

Chaos Warlord is likely named Zarathur, as if you right click his image on this page: http://fantasyflight...s.asp?eidn=4704 which is right beside Cato it says the image is "art-zarathur.png"

Imperial Guard Warlord appears to be Colonel Straken, his artwork is on this page: http://www.fantasyfl...eidm=261&esem=1 down beside Nazdreg and is called "-art-colonelstraken.png" Colonel Straken is a known character, http://wh40k.lexican...om/wiki/Straken

So that makes it:

SM: Cato
Orks: Nazdreg
Eldar: Eldorath Starbane
IG: Colonel Straken
Chaos: Zarathur

Just leaves DE and Tau as unknown/unseen right now.

the squad cards have their own numbers out of 9 to the right of the text box. So I would say that it would be a duplication of information to have that and the yellow icon... duplication of information is usually the thing they avoid in card design. That elf for example is 5/9 in the squad and card 6 in the entire core set.. (so it seams)

could very well be.. though I was was FFG I would be avoiding Necron stories or face the wrath of "missing faction: threads!

He's card 123 in the core set, it's down in the bottom right corner by the set logo, a black hammer in a white circle. Pretty much the same as every other LCG. It's on every card. The 6 is probably his set # like in Star Wars objective sets each Warlord has their own unique set number which seems to follow the alignment wheel counter clockwise as Cato is 001, Nazdreg is 003, Eldorath(?) 006. The Warlords also look like they are the first 7 cards in the set as their card number matches their set numbers.

There will be plenty of those regardless.

I do really like the concept of having a Warlord who is not only an Identity card (as in Netrunner) but also brings their private cadre of thematic (and hopefully synergistic) cards. This means that each new Warlord should offer a greater impact on the game and really have a lot of influence over how the deck plays.

I wonder if any of the Warlord-buddy cards will also be normal cards and if so, whether that would allow you to exceed the normal 3x deck limit?

Could also be a hint of things to come maybe since really that is what Starbane is (in)famous for.

If you look at some of the other pictures, you'll see that some cards have a blue icon there instead of a yellow icon, and some cards have nothing.

On a side note. Card types seem to be: Army, Attachment, Warlord, Event, Support.

IMO, Shield is a keyword. Look at the Tempest Blade, it says "...gets +1 ATK and gains...," then it has a description of what Shield means. That's a pretty clear sign that Shield is a keyword, and not an icon. Especially since the Tempest Blade is an attachment, or are you saying that attachments can have Shields too? Also, I believe The Fury of Sicarius is an Event.

If you look at some of the other pictures, you'll see that some cards have a blue icon there instead of a yellow icon, and some cards have nothing.


If they are like Force Icons then yes attachments could have shields too.

Maybe the blue is the loyal cards mentioned in the deck building section and the yellow is the signature cards for each Warlord ? So far all the Yellow symbols have been on Warlord set cards.

My guess is the same as yours. Yellow Icons are loyal to Warlord. Blue Icons are loyal to the race.
