Perry Miniatures launched the pre-order for their Travel Battle - portable miniature wargame with 8mm plastic miniatures and terrain allowing you to recreate Napoleonic battles in miniature.
Travel Battle Pre-Order available now! We're very happy to have just received first shots of the figures and terrain from Renedra for TravelBattle, now we can reveal all! The two green plastic 3D terrain boards are 10" squares with roads, hills, ploughed fields, walled areas and six separate buildings. The two boards are different designs but match up neatly side by side with roads connecting. This means you have potentially 16 variations of battlefield by turning the board edges around. The tree tops for the woods are separate to allow figures to be placed in wooded areas. We don't have shots yet (Terry and Renedra really are working their socks off for this release at Salute!) of the buildings and tree tops so what you will see here are mock ups. We also have a photo of the figure frame. There will be two blue and two red frames in each box.
Pre-Orders - we have put up a Pre-Order for TravelBattle on the Plastic Boxes page of our website and we will send them out as soon as we can after Salute. Just order as normal, and remember that monies will be taken at time of order. Please note: If you are going to Salute, and would like one, please don't Pre-Order as there will be plenty there to pick up.
TravelBattle is a complete table top miniatures game in a box. It is intended for gamers who have limited space, or those who are traveling on a long journey or holiday and need a gaming fix! All the playing pieces are made of coloured plastic, and include two 3 dimensional green terrain boards with separate woods, grey buildings and red and blue armies. The size of the miniatures is 8mm. The two terrain boards are designed to be placed together on any edge, giving the potential for 16 different battlefields. The 1" grid marked on the boards excludes the need for rulers to be used in the game.
The simple rules system should allow a game to played within an hour. The two armies are generic Napoleonic forces of equal size and composition which make up three brigades for each side. There is a simple painting guide in case you which to enhance your armies and terrain boards.
