|Description:||KoW is a new concept for mass battle miniature wargaming – a game that is easy to learn and fast to play, yet will take time and experience to master. With few and simple rules, there is little to get in the way of the fun and slaughter. KoW is a challenging game of strategy, where you can pit your wits against your opponent without devoting half of your brainpower to remember a plethora of convoluted rules.|
And that’s not all, the innovative turn structure allows you to play KoW using a time-keeping tool (like a stopwatch or a chess clock) to time your moves. As the seconds tick away, the pressure and excitement this adds makes KoW unlike any other large-scale wargame you’ve ever played before.

Kings of War: Monstrous Tactics
With the new Kings of War monster kits headed your way soon and even more existing ones, we thought that it would be great to go over them in a bit more detail. These are some suggested uses for your heavy-hitters in games, but of course, there are many more ways to put your monsters to use in battle. The Steel Behemoth is the epitome of the Dwarven way of war. With a high defence of 6+ and a nerve equivalent to a horde of infantry, this thing will hold the line whenever you need it to. In combat, it has tons of attacks (20+D6!), all of which will hit with Crushing Strength 3 – able to topple the toughest of foes. Its main weakness, like many Dwarf units, is speed. This will be unlikely to charge an opponent first, however, it can take just about any charge levelled at it, then hit back just as hard. The Undead Wyrm makes a great mount for your Revenant King, turning a small character on foot into something much more dangerous. Again, this hits with Crushing Strength 3, on 9 attacks and has great nerve. While the rest of the stats are [...]

Kings of War: Monsters of Mantica
In the fantasy world of Mantica, there are many wild and dangerous creatures. Towering over a man, these monsters are either captured and pressed into service, or fight under their own allegiance. Some are deeply intelligent creatures who have walked the world for an age, others are unfeeling constructs, capable of neither mercy nor loyalty. Most enemy commanders would go out of their way to include these in their fighting forces, despite the greater destruction they bring. In a world of monsters, it pays to have one on your side. With our new in-house resin production up and running, we’ve started to produce some of the largest (and most detailed) miniatures that Kings of War has ever had. This was always in the plan from the beginning, resin being the ideal medium for producing large creatures to add to your armies. The first resin monster to come off the production line was the Tree Herder – for the Elves and the Forces of Nature. Following swiftly on this month, we have the Dwarf Steel Behemoth and the Undead Wyrm (ridden by a Revenant King, no less). These add to the older Greater Obsidian Golem, Greater Earth Elemental, and Archfiend of [...]

Kings Of War Edge Of The Abyss Campaign Update!
As the battle for Mantica reaches its peak, there are tales of heroism and villainy abound, as the forces of good struggle to counter the Abyss and their allies. In the early days of the conflict, it seemed that there was a ray of hope for the Green Lady’s alliance as the forces of evil were held back in every realm, save for the edges of their own domain. However, as the skies darken and the power of the Wicked Ones waxes full, the armies of evil have managed to overrun the Forests of Galahir and the legendary Twilight Glades. Woe betide those who are caught in their path. The Hokh-Man has been no stranger to conflict either, with both the Forces of the Abyss and the Empire of Dust wresting the ports under their control. If the forces of good can’t take these back, the Empire of Dust will be free to sail on the civilised world, bringing undeath and ruination to all they find. In the wake of such destruction, the Forces of the Abyss are running rampant throughout Mantica, being sighted as far out as the Ardovakian Plain. It would seem that these infernal creatures are feeding [...]

Tactics Tuesday: Using the new GCPS
In this week’s Tactics Tuesday, Andrew Sharp takes you through using the brand-new GCPS in games of Deadzone! Faction Overview The Galactic Co-Prosperity Sphere (GCPS) is sold as an idyllic society where multitudinous civilisations live in peace, prospering from free trade and advanced technology. The truth is far more complicated. The Rulers of the GCPS ‘The Council of Seven’ maintain an economic and political hegemony that ensures the GCPS is maintained and protected for the security of its human population alone. This decision has always been inherent in human culture, but was reinforced by the events of the Mandrake rebellion, which brought the fledgling GCPS to its very knees. From that day on the forces of the GCPS contain only humans, with only very careful use of other races likes Marauders. Everyone else must agree to be ruled or face the consequences. Strengths Guns, guns and more guns, pure and simple. Fortunately the GCPS are perfectly designed to perform this role. Their shooting is not as good as the Enforcers, Forge Fathers or Asterians but you have many more models and all of them can shoot well enough. There are lots of weapon options as stock or as additional [...]
