The rumor has been going around the web for a while now and we've even seen some photos of mockup boxes, but now it's official. I like it. The 80 pawns (pawns? not tokens and not minis? I wonder what they mean by that) sound very tempting, there are never enough dice at the table imo and the battlemat is probably pretty cool.
But I'm mostly interested in seeing what they did with the "streamlined mechanics".
