I want this SO much!!!
... And now I have it!
Bought it on a trip to London... Along with a load of other stuff!!!

Takes the BL experience to a whole new level, and opens up a whole lot of new possibilities for customization! Compared to the point based army generation systems of other, slightly similar, games of this genre, the deployment decks and specialist cards are a nice new way of having some control over how your army will be composed and deployed... definitely preferable over the "creative" book keeping of, say, Warhammer!
Also, the specialist cards open up a lot of new possibilities, knowing DoW, we´ve only just scratched the surface here... And off course, there´s the two new types of terrain included, varations on excisting terrain rules, but still nice!

Personalized deployment of troops is really cool. It makes it different every time. The specialist cards are cool too! Giving each side a little bit more to customize. If you want more customization in your Battlelore then get this.

Bought for about $20. An excellent expansion that changes the unit setup at the start of the game, and allows use of specialist units. The subsequent expansions include cards for this expansion. I have played through all of the scenarios on my own.

Pretty much an essential purchase for all Battlelore owners.

It removes the restriction of playing set adventures and adds a whole new set of factors to consider when picking and deploying your armies.

It hugely multiplies the already massive replayability and appeal of Battlelore.

If you plan on getting any expansion this is an essential building block for further plays. The only reason why I don't give this a 10 is that this really should have been included in the base game, and I feel that it was kind of rude to make you buy this separately. I understand why they did it. You don't need this if you are only going to buy the base game, but if you plan on buying anything else, you really should pick this up next.

It feels a little bit like taking two steps back as you are buying a whole expansion that just comes with a booklet, some cards and a couple of tiles. Grrr.

They could have at least included a monster.

This Army Deployment system and impromptu scenario generator gives players a new range of decisions to make for playing the game: how to deploy your army, what elements to keep in reserve, and which specialist cards you should employ round out the BattleLore gaming experience. Not strictly necessary if you're happy with your core set, but it does put the game on a different level of play.

While some people complain, this is the PERFECT supplement for this game! Just the right level of deployment and variety, with some choice, but not too much pre-game time.

This expansion is pretty much a must-have, since the "BattleLore" base game came with so very freakin' few scenarios. (And the specialist cards are a nice touch too.) The only problem with the new deployment system is it does not take into account those of us who prefer to play strictly historical scenarios and leave the fantasy elements in the box, so I've had to modify it slightly. Game design: 4.5/5 Personal enjoyment: 4.5/5 Total: 9/10

Breaths life to the Battlelore system by allowing players to build custom armies. The card driven army building isn't nearly as straightforward and elegant as the Warhammer-style points system, but good enough for casual fantasy clashes.

Researching the forums led me to pick up Call to Arms and Epic. I believed these two were almost essential expansions and after having played the base game a few times I am even more convinced.

These expansions increase the replay ability exponentially.

Get it while it's hot. Don't bother with BattleLore unless you pick up this expansion. The deployment deck system gives the player options, and the specialist card system is a simple but elegant way to customize an army for a change of strategy.
