At the risk of bringing up the collective memory of the excellent Game of Thrones TV series that fell apart at the end, CMON Entertainment has officially announced that Daenarys Targaryen and her three dragons are getting their very own miniatures in A Song of Ice and Fire: The Miniatures Game.
The aptly titled Mother of Dragons box includes new units for House Targaryen. The set includes new miniatures for Daenarys and her three dragons, Rhaegal, Viserion, and Drogon. Each dragon has its own miniature and stat card. Daenarys on the other hand has two different iterations, one where she is a Unit Attachment, and the other is where she is an NCU. As an NCU, Daenarys is referred to as the Queen of Meereen and focuses more on interfering with enemy Morale, forcing them to roll an extra d6 and dropping the highest result. The Unit Attachment variation meanwhile is Mother of Dragons, and comes with some big tradeoffs. On other hand, the enemy gains two additional Victory Points if Daenarys' unit is wiped out but allows the player to pull a tactics card from the deck or discard pile whenever she captures a zone.
The biggest draw however is her Mother of Dragons ability, which reduces the recruitment cost of the dragon units by two points each, but you must have all three dragons in your army along with their mother, which is 21 points total. Dragons aren't cheap in the low fantasy world of A Song of Ice and Fire but at least you get a bulk discount as well as the more obvious advantages of air superiority and dragon breath.
This announcement does coincide with updates on new convenient features for the game. CMON commented that while physical card pack releases for the game have been hampered by production issues in China, there is now a fully available War Council app available on smartphones and tablets. This is a quick and easy cheat sheet for character stat cards as well as a collection tracker and a List Builder for you to build armies for upcoming games. As for having your military tactics turn on a dime into an unwarranted war crime like in Game of Thrones' final season, that will depend more on your sound military mind.
The Mother of Dragons box is on sale for $34.99 and is available now.
