The new banners set has officially been released today by FFG:

http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=2015

The set is listed as containing 44 banners in total.

With the core set containing 35 seperate units (not incl. commanders), the pack will cover a banner for each unit provided in the core set.

... now all I need is to be able to source them in the UK!

I've seen them in a couple of the local stores here in the US. So I would assume that would be in stock in the UK in the not-to-distant future.

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies and… Read the rulebook again.

Glad to see that FFG addressed this problem. Those old banners were a hassle.

So would you need a second pack to cover the Wardens of the North and Wardens of the West expansions?

I just browsed through the scenarios from the base game, Wardens of the West and Wardens of the north. I looked up the highest number of banners needed a single scenario, and this is what I came up with:

Stark
Green banners: 6
Blue banners: 8
Red banners: 6

Lannister
Green banners: 6
Blue banners: 10
Red banners: 5

That's 41 banners total, so buying one pack of premium banners will leave you with 3 'spares'.

I'll have a look at the skirmish cards, to see how the banner colors are distributed amongst them.

Given the track record of huge, idiotic errors on the printed materials for this game, I hope they included the correct distribution of stickers for this.

I'm pretty excited to upgrade my banners and have enough to make my own epic scenarios.

Just checked my skirmish cards:

Stark
Green banners: 24
Blue banners: 25
Red banners: 13

Lannister
Green banners: 25
Blue banners: 28
Red banners: 9

124 banners total. But because the skirmish cards mostly have around 4 units on them, and the maximum of unit-supplying skirmish cards used in a scenario is 3, plus a a maximum of 3 commander units at all time, you'll probably never be using more than 15 units in a skirmish game (the maximum units I have deployed in one so far has been 14). So I don't see the need to buy more than one banner pack here either.

I picked up a pack of Premium Banners at my FLGS today, here's a breakdown of the included stickers:

Stark
Green banners: 8
Blue banners: 8
Red banners: 6

Lannister
Green banners: 6
Blue banners: 10
Red banners: 6

So I'm sure there are enough banners of each type to play the game.
Now off to stickering those 44 banners whistle

I would highly suggest spraypainting the plastic part first. It really helps to be able to read the board at a glance more readily and I just like the overall look.
