  1. it’s really good to see Fields of the Wind get some love from the Unicorn players and some validation in a good performance.

  2. I’m more pleased to see that there is strong performance to be had out of three of the Unicorn SHs. Its a shame that MWK hasn’t lived up to even the meagre expectations placed on it. Something went seriously wrong with that box, sadly. If Uni get a scout theme in EE I hope that any supporting SH they get for it is a little better (more like KHExp, perhaps?).
