At this point do we have a rough idea abort what the 8 new things in wave 2 Will contain for Nordgaard?

Specifically Im interested in knowing if Nordgaard will have more shooter options?
Will there be a warmachine or another shooting unit?

I need to know how much the Nordgaard and the Mortans Will end up looking like eachother.

Looking through the background book, the following possible units pop up:

Warlords or characters:
- Dwarven Thanes, Fjelljarls,
- Ogre Huscarls
- Human Hirdmen, Fyrdjarls,
- Rigjarls,
- Vanitan priests,
- Innerdeep Magi
- Voelva
- Godar
- Godspeakers

Units:
- Spalthammer Guard
- Battle Brothers
- Axe-Fellers
- Bjornlingr
- Svartlingr
- Hersir
- Ulfhednar Berzerkers
- Hegelath Hird
- Wolverkin Rangers
- Myrgaerder Ironhorns

Creatures:
- Stinngangr, Fjordgangr, Frostgangr
- Disir

Potential sub-faction:
- the Dverger


From what I understand from the descriptions, there won't be much shooting (maybe some axe-throwing). There will be magic attacks and spells, though.

I'm not allowed to give too much away at this point.

Nordgaard will get:
a cavalry unit (Skannfyrd),
2 spellcaster characters (1 Skynnfyrd, 1 Clans),
a creature,
2 Dwarven units,
1 skannfyrd Warlord,
1 Guilds warlord.

Nordgaard will get no missile troops (unless you count short-range throwing axes which are a secondary rather than primary weapon). No war-machines.


Mortans wave-2 releases will be very different to Nordgaard, and in my opinion will actually make the factions less similar in style of play.

Mortans will get no cavalry units.

They will get:
1 unit of cheap, medium infantry troops for Legions (auxiliaries),
1 units of melee troops with higher POW weapons (Magistratum
1 unit of medium melee troops usable by Technostratum and Legions),
a mounted Legio Mortum character,
a magical Magistratum warlord
a strategic Legions warlord,
a missile unit
a close-up war-machine for (Naptha Incendiator team!).

There will be plenty of variety with some recombined tactics and plenty of new tactics, and each faction will get more variety of troop types (light, medium and heavy) and quality (core, semi-elite and elite).


So you can see that Nordgaard and Mortans will diverge more - Mortans being more missile-based and having more war-machines than Nordgaard, while Nordgaard will go in the direction of more creatures and cavalry, (2 additional cavalry units are planned for Nordgaard for wave-3).

Thanks for the insight David!
I'm glad we'll have more tactical options and that factions will retain their characteristics.
However I hope this doesn't mean that Mortans won't get a couple of creatures in the future because undead constructs like the Moloch are just too cool and fun to play Wink (obviously not as many as Banebrood).

Please say there's a Feral Troll Alpha Male Warlord :>
