Daniel's Games Emporium: New Arrowstorm: Battle Games in Medieval Britain Rules!


Daniel's Games Emporium: In this gridded-layout miniature wargame, you take the role of a medieval king, bishop, lord, or commander leading your army on the battlefield. You must choose where and how to focus your troops' actions and control the battle’s impetus. The battle is partly fought on the tabletop like other miniature wargames but is also fought just as hard on the Tactics Chart, providing an additional mind-game against your opponent.

Command your units to move and fight in the areas of the battlefield you wish, but leave the actual process of fighting to your unit commanders. This is represented by the random factor of dice and each of your units’ abstract but often-decreasing Battle Rating. Because of this, your focus is kept where it should be – out-thinking your opponent by using superior tactics and exploiting their weaknesses on the battlefield.

Arrowstorm is not intended as a heavy simulation of medieval warfare but as an enjoyable, simple, and fast-playing battle game. You’ll find that much of the action is stylized and streamlined. Don’t think of “turns” in the usual wargaming way – in each turn your units may fight or move several times, countered by your opponent after every action, creating a very fluid game but at the same time making cohesive planning difficult to achieve. Please note that Arrowstorm shares the same basic rules with my Age of Penda book. Period-specific troop types, army lists, special rules, and minor rules differences exist. Check these new rules now here!

‘You Command’ is a series of light miniature wargames by Origins Award winner Daniel Mersey (Lion Rampant, Dragon Rampant, Battle Ravens, and many more games). When you play a ‘You Command’ game, your goal is to defeat your opponent by out-thinking them tactically using the innovative Tactics Chart, and then by out-fighting their model army on the tabletop battlefield.

Warlord Games: Forgotten No More, But Still Glorious – American Civil War Miniatures Return!


Warlord Games: Celebrating the return of the beloved Forgotten & Glorious miniature range in a new and improved form. This March, Forgotten & Glorious miniatures will be forgotten no more! Their much-missed range of American Civil War figures has been safely in our care since the company closed, and we’ve been working on updating and improving it over the last couple of years. Now they’re ready to get back into action on the tabletop, with a few important updates and additions! First into the fray are two regiments – one advancing and the other in a firing line – and the artillery battery.

Victrix: New Plastic Medieval Islamic Heavy Cavalry Preview


Victrix: New Medieval Range Renders: Islamic Heavy Cavalry! Here we have the first renders of rider figure 1 and the 4 horses for our upcoming Islamic heavy cavalry set. These are going to represent the Seljuk and Syrian heavy cavalry of the 12th to 13th Centuries. There will be a mix of armour styles of mail and lamellar and varying helmets from all enclosing mail hoods with elaborate spiked helmets to open faced helmets with turbans.

The bow cases and arrow quivers will be optional as Arab heavy cavalry did not use the bow but Seljuk Askaris did. There will be a few bow firing arms included as well as swords, spears, lances, axes and maces. Seljuk Turks formed a large proportion of any Amir’s household troops in Syria and Egypt and so we will be including some Seljuk heads with their distinctive hair in three braids, two to the side of the head and one down the back. We have included the Seljuk fur cap called the Sharbush worn by Chieftains and apparently Saladin wore one over the top of his helmet or mail hood.

Swords will be a mix of the straight bladed type but also the curved sabre and there will be plenty of shield options. For further flexibility you will be able to combine a lot of the heads, shields and weapons from this set with the very versatile Norman cavalry set to create some more varieties of Arab cavalry. Islamic armies made great use of captured Crusader armour, weapons and shields so there is no reason a Norman cavalry figure with the addition of a turbaned head, Islamic shield and weapon arm could not ride along in your Fatamid Egyptian cavalry units. Islamic rider 2 is well under way and we expect to finish sculpting these in the next 3 weeks.

Empress Miniatures: New English Civil War Fully Armoured Cuirassiers


Empress Miniatures: We have some new releases to our 28mm ECW range, and of course also useful for TYW. Fully armoured cuirassiers. These guys were a dying breed across Europe and the UK at this period although still made a significant appearance in the first two years of the conflict and in the early battles. Most notably Heselrige’s and Balfour’s regiments both of which gradually changed to the traditional harquebusier style of armour and weapons.

However for the early battles such as Edgehill and Landsdown these guys had very significant parts to play. These are the equivalent to the tank of the 20th century. There are 6 packs of figures with two figures in each pack. There is also a special casualty pack (great for Roundway Down.) The unit of 6 packs is also offered in a very good deal. Most of the figures come with an option on what weapon to use. Either sword or pistol. Just slot in the hand you want.

Osprey Publishing: A War Transformed: WWI on the Doggerland Front! Weird WWI Wargame


Osprey Publishing: The Great War meets the horrors of forgotten folklore in this occult skirmish wargame. 1916: A World Transformed. As the Great War raged, the Moon fell from its orbit. Seas shifted, uncovering new lands and revealing what tide and time had concealed. Long known as a potent occult power, the Moon’s descent also heralded the terrifying resurgence of magic. Long-forgotten gods and spirits began to stir in hidden groves and caverns, and old traditions found new strength. Soon, stone circles echoed once more with the chanting of ancient rituals and menhirs were again bedecked with wildflowers and presented with offerings of honey and blood.

1918: A War Transformed. Rival nations battle on new fronts, seeking dominance with weapons of spell, song, and sacrifice. Thrust to the surface, Doggerland, the ancient bridge between Britain and Europe, becomes a crucial battleground in the conflict. In this alien landscape, raiding parties pick through the ribs of wrecks and the ruins of lost villages, war machines festooned with totems and fetishes roll over the brittle bones of long-dead giants, and cavalry charge across plains made verdant by the vegetation returning to this new land with unnatural speed.

A War Transformed is a skirmish wargame set in a world where World War I was utterly changed by forces far beyond human comprehension. Players command small forces of infantry, cavalry, artillery, and other… stranger… troops on the Doggerland Front. Fast-paced gameplay and a tense initiative bidding system are combined with authentic folk traditions and occult philosophies of the era – it is a game of rifle and relic, of bayonet and belief, of machine gun and magic.
