GW have revised the WOTR FAQ as of September. Confirming that the literal reading of the text was correct for Overlord (ie the rule says nothing about requiring a hero) is a useful addition. There are a range of useful little changes scattered in there to. I think that Heroic Fight being able to beat an enemy duel (if the player wins the roll off) could prove quite important for some matchups. I also like that they have stated that monsters count as a full VP, rather than just a single company (ie 1/3 VP).
I had to laugh when I read some of them, for example:
Q. Can Aragorn use his ‘Epic Journey’ to move immobileSeriously, some players though they could use it to teleport Trebuchets? I liked this one too:
formations, such as Artillery? (p104)
Q. Can Murin’s Guard use ‘Lock Shields!’ while theirArguing that you can use an ability called 'lock shields', when you have lost your shields, seems a pretty impressive example of rules lawyering to me!
shields are broken by the ‘Shatter Shields’ magical power
(either for the rest of the turn if the result was 2-5, or for
the rest of the game if the result was 6)? (p136)
