Mantic Firefight 2.0: a Preview

Well hello dear reader,
to hold you over the holidays, I decided to bring you a “Firefight 2.0 pre-release” article.

First of all, I would like to thank Mantic Games, as they provided us (Pathfinders) with an advance PDF copy of the rules book and the factions book. This allows us to get a first taste of the game, and to prepare to do demos and test games ahead of the release of the system!

What Is This Game About?

Kings of War is a mass battle fantasy wargame designed by Mantic. There are 26 factions available in the rules: almost any fantasy trope you can think of has rules in Kings of War! Many also have an official range of miniatures available from Mantic, although you can use any miniature you like. A standard army will have about a dozen units, each of ten to sixty (!) fighters: with potentially more than a hundred miniatures per side, we are talking about mass battles indeed!

Gothic Ruins terrain set by Gamemat.eu – review

This post is about the Gothic Ruin Set by gamemat.eu; I ordered it a few weeks ago and was blown away by the quality and value of the whole kit.

I know that when buying a kit from a non-GW (or your chosen “big” manufacturer of minis and terrain) there’s always some hesitation: Will this be good quality? Won’t the new pieces stand out when using my minis next to them? Would I be able to use it in several game systems?
