Iron Hands, Salamanders & Raven Guard

Postby Gold Bearer » Friday May 4th, 2018 10:06am

Each squad has three advanced equipment cards that are added to the others and replace one of the standard equipment cards once the commander reaches the highest rank of captain senorius (it doesn't do anything in the standard game) which can now be reached by trading in four honour badges just like the other ranks and you also take two extra equipment cards when the advanced equipment is unlocked. This also gives more incentive to trade in honour badges to progress through the ranks.
