Hello everyone!

I see a lot of people talking about custom warbands championships. In the original rulebook there are'nt a lot of clues about making your own warband. So, searching through the web I found a Chris Dupuis article where he explains the rules for making custom warbands. The rules are:

1. Your warband must include at least 12 Creatures (cards and minis). You can have up to 4 copies of each.
2. Your warband must include at least 30 Order cards. You can have up to 4 copies of each.
3. Your warband must have exactly 1 Commander Card.

Obviusly, these rules will make factions a lot stronger. I already used them, but just to take out the "bad cards" and "bad units" from the game (I think Human ranger may have a role with "behind enemy lines", but appart from that she is useless).

What do you think about these rules? And what are the rules people use in championships?

Cheers!

The rules are on page 15 of the rulebook. Go have a look. "Building your own warbands".

Custom warbands are much more interesting than the base warbands, and can be scarily effective. We've had a lot of fun making our own.

The owner of my flgs really likes this game and is trying to get some organised DC game nights going. Here's a link to the first night he organised... http://www.ravenstonegames.net/tournaments.html. As you can see, his rules are right from the rulebooks.

What i don't want to see is players showing up with zany min-maxed warbands that don't make any sense within the D&D world/cosmology itself. (ie the Dwarven Cleric with his buddy the Vampire and their friends the Hobgoblin twins). I never cared for this effect in Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures.

DC reminds me of Mordheim: City of the Damned. I'de love to see (or develope myself i guess) a campaign system that allows you to spend the treasure you collect during skirmishes between games on your warband. This treasure could be spent on equipment cards that come into play as new creatures are deployed, level-up cards, creatures from other factions etc. etc.

oh yeah, welcome aboard newuser! keep the Dungeon Command posts coming

Vampires have domination gaze BTW. It's a thing.

Where were you at the last few events? I have been playing steadily from the start. Definitely show up at the next event and we'll play a few rounds. I'm also open to outside-tournament gameplay. I love DC and am always willing to play.

I've had the game for awhile... but i'm just getting into playing it now. I'm definitely picking up the Undead set at Ravenstone and i'll keep my eyes peeled for the next meetup.

I look forward to playing against you. The Undead set is the best one thusfar.

Drafting is another fun element to the game as well. Works the same as a Magic draft, only you draft 12 Creatures, then the 36 Order cards.
