Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is an easy to learn and easy to play 4X game. The depth is in forming your strategy. You can learn all you need to play from the video below.
To show off the new content first, the order of contents below is as follows: Pestilence, Base game, Order & Chaos.
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea: Pestilence introduces 2 new Factions, 20 new Spell Cards, 24 new Exploration Tokens, and an all new Floating Continent and Sunken Continent.
The Floating Continent is the starting island for the Birdfolk and is accessible via ferry routes and air vessels.
The Sunken Continent is the starting island for the Merfolk and can be placed over any island. It is seeded with water exploration tokens instead of land tokens, but remains traversable only by land units and air units, like other islands.
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is a 4X style board game (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) that was designed to recreate the experience of RTS (Real Time Strategy) games for the tabletop. It plays roughly 30-45 minutes per player and, with the inclusion of expansions, supports 1-7 players. It features rules for free-for-all — 2 vs. 2 — 2 vs. 2 vs. 2 — 3 vs. 3 — and solo play.
In Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, players will choose one of the many factions offered from the collective total of the base game and available expansions, and then develop this faction from the ground up over a series of rounds. These developments include growing your work force and army, constructing buildings and towers useful to your goals, recruiting heroes to lead your army, acquiring vessels that travel by sea and air, and expanding your reach to all areas of the map.
Throughout the game, players will engage in epic battles, vie for area control, cast powerful spells and carefully manage resources. In addition to an economy of goods, the game features an action economy that requires players to find balance between committing their serfs to build, gather resources, and select the actions required to proceed through the game.
The game concludes one round after a player meets one of four end game triggers. The four end game triggers correspond with the 4x's: eXplore (all land exploration tokens have been revealed), eXpand (all the serfs and warriors of a single player are in play), eXploit (all three towers of a single player are in play) or eXterminate (a player's capital city has been destroyed). The player with the most victory points wins the game. Victory points are acquired in numerous ways that include the final level of your capital city, battles you have won and lost, regions you control and units in play at the end of the game.
The base game features the classic factions of Humans, Orcs, Dwarves and Elves. The Order & Chaos expansion features the Lionkin, Undead, Lizardfolk and Goblins. The new expansion, Pestilence, introduces the Birdfolk and Merfolk.
The Mercenary Mini Expansions offer a wide range of Heroes that can be recruited by any player without prerequisites. Mercenary Heroes possess some of the most powerful abilities in the game and can be recruited alongside your faction's regular Heroes.
The Nomads Mini Expansion features 2 different play modes. You can either use the Nomads as Mercenaries or as NPCs (non-player characters).
If used as Mercenaries, a player is able to recruit 3 Nomads to join their army. In many ways they function as enhanced Serfs. While they cannot build, they can follow/muster actions and collect extra resources. They also reduce the resource collection of opponent's in adjacent regions and offer a late game boost to exploration. Their strength depends on how many are in play, so try to keep them all alive.
If used as NPCs, they cannot be controlled by any single player for long. Each round, 1 is added by the player who starts the round. The regions adjacent to Nomads produce 1 fewer resource. If left unchecked they can really hinder the progress of nearby players and the more there are in play, the more difficult they are to defeat. But, defeating one allows a player to capture them and use them to follow/muster a single future action. Then they return to the supply.
Additionally, the Nomads Mini Expansion introduces 6 new spell cards. These spells allow players to leverage the Nomads for their own gain, by either befriending them or enraging them.
The Siege Engines Mini Expansion features 6 siege constructs. Like Mercenaries, these units can be recruited by any player without prerequisite. They offer abilities uniquely focused at giving you the edge in certain types of battles. For instance, the Ballistae offer ranged attack and are powerful against Heroes and Air Vessels. The Catapults also offer ranged attack and are designed to destroy towers and sea vessels while the Siege Towers have a singular focus on laying waste to Capital Cities.
The Pestilence Booster Pack provides the additional card sleeves needed to sleeve the extra cards added with the Pestilence Expansion. It also features 14 new Spell Cards and 2 new Vessels.
Note: the 2 Vessel Stands used for the Dragonscale Yachts come inside the Pestilence Expansion box, NOT inside the Pestilence Booster Pack. The stands are the same as the ones offered in the Base Game and the Order & Chaos Expansion.
If you own the first printing of Heroes of Land, Air & Sea and its expansion products, this 2nd Printing Update Kit is for you. It will come with physical copies of any rules, player boards, and cards that have had any text changes. After swapping these in, your game and expansions will be the same as the versions offered in the 2nd printing.
The 2nd Printing Update Kit is offered for free with pledges to the Pestilence Expansion. It will also be offered at cost (plus shipping) in the PledgeManager.
If you're like me, you're not a painter but you enjoy having painted minis. While it's not feasible for us to have all the minis pre-painted, we can offer it for the Heroes and Mercenaries at roughly $2 per mini or less.
We will also back this option up with a *Money-Back Guarantee. If you'd like to take advantage of this offer, refer to the reward tier you have selected and manually add the amount listed to your pledge.
*Money-Back Guarantee: If you are not satisfied with your pre-pianted miniatures, we will offer you a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee for the price of the Add-On. We will replace your pre-painted miniatures with the un-painted versions and refund your money for the add-on. We just ask that you please send us your pre-painted minis and cover the postage of that shipment.
We are currently developing a FREE app for Android and iOS that will assist you in playing Heroes of Land, Air & Sea. We expect to have this app available for download in August.
This app will offer the following awesome features:
To pledge for these options, you will need to enter the exact amount + shipping (see below) for your pledge, but you will not select a reward tier.
Your pledge will be transferred to our PledgeManager after the project is over. There you will be able to select these packages and apply your pledge to cover their cost.
If you'd like pre-painted Heroes and Mercenaries, add $25 for Order & Chaos Only or add $40 for Order & Chaos + Pestilence + Extras.

Instead of surprising you with shipping costs AFTER the project is funded just to offer you a low upfront price, we are charging the shipping now. You will NOT be hit with additional shipping charges from us after the project ends. In most cases, you will not be hit with customs or VAT either as we are offering Customs Friendly Shipping to the countries where most of our backers are located.
Your rewards will be shipped at our cost to our international hubs. Based on where you are located, we will either ship to you from our hub in Germany (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or New Hampshire (USA and the rest of the world).
Backers who do not complete their pledge manager by the deadline, which will be made clear via an email notification, may need to have their rewards shipped from the US. This may incur additional shipping charges to international backers that would need to be paid for at that time.
Due to the size of the rewards and risk of bounce back, we cannot ship to PO Boxes domestically or internationally.
Shipping rates for the two primary reward tiers are described below:
