Lost Army Mission Pack
A Mission Pack is a new type of Expansion that is heavily themed around a brand new Enemy Type. It includes all of the miniatures, rules, and a large host of new cards to add these new foes to your games of Shadows of Brimstone, as well as a 4 Mission mini-campaign, themed for these new Enemies (these Missions can also be easily played as one-off adventures, adding a large amount of replayability). This set also includes an Adventure card for theming any existing Mission around the new Enemy Type included, Unique Trait cards to add deadly themed abilities to the Enemies, and a new Objective Room Map Tile.
The thunder of cannons sounds in the dark, and sporadic flashes of fire and smoke dance across the night sky as the army of the dead lays siege to the land of the living! It has been 50 years since the Alamo fell, and Santa Ana's legions marched to war. One legion dispatched to the north to investigate tales of a magical black rock never returned...until now. Back for revenge, the Lost Army marches once more, a corrupt echo of conquest and glory still driving their animated husks to war!
Figures supplied unassembled and unpainted.

This mission pack, which features a rogue legion of the 1830s Mexican Army returned as a well-disciplined and highly fashionable legion of skeletal undead, is possibly the greatest addition to any game, ever.
Mechanically, the Lost Army brings ranged enemies into the mix, greatly adding some variety as you have to change tactics against them. They're also highly damaging and well-armored, so different tactics are required to fight them, as opposed to the usual kill the things that run up to you strategy you get in the base games.
Miniature-wise, they're incredible. Sculpts are rock solid, they fit together well, you get 12 Army models of 2 differing sculpts, and you can alternate their backpacks to get essentially 4 different models (that look great when in formation). It feels like the more brittle older plastic rather than the new stuff, but it's a strong material and none of my dozen dudes had any mishaps being removed from the sprues and they glued up real nice.
Flavor-wise, they're FANTASTIC. They come with several traits, so you can face off against different kinds of units, they can spawn a Generalissimo or a Standard Bearer that helps out the whole unit, and the items they come with are both functional and very lore appropriate. The campaign missions change up ordinary rules for a fresh experience, and we had an absolute blast playing it from start to finish!
This is a highly recommended mission pack that really helps your games of Brimstone blossom into a gritty shootout against evil with a distinct bouquet of Americana.
