Preorders Due for Runewars Miniatures Game

“This is a runebound age, its magic tired and constrained. The dark history of the land is written across its fields and forests in the ragged scars of war..."

Astarra the Runewitch

Runewars: The Miniatures Game


SRP: $99.95

The chill mists have an evil reputation, billowing and moving like a thing alive. But the true terror lies within the mist, a dead kingdom garrisoned by undying legions. These legions now march on the border territory of Roth's Vale... and all Terrinoth will know war again.

For years, the armies of Waiqar the Undying have stayed within their borders, launching only minor raids across the border. But now, a nameless threat stirs within the Mistlands, and legions of undead cross into the realm of Terrinoth under Waiqar’s command! The Daqan Lords have sounded the call to war, and their finest generals lead armies of warriors and golems to take up defensive positions in the border territory of Roth’s Vale. The first battles of the next great war are about to begin.

Experience war on a grand scale with Runewars: The Miniatures Game, a game of battles between the great powers of Terrinoth. In each game, you and your opponent will gather armies of miniatures and lead them into battle - blocks of infantry will maneuver for position, cavalry wings will wheel and slam into a weakened flank, and monstrous rune golems or carrion lancers will smash through formations of lesser warriors.

Innovative command tools, two distinct factions, and countless ways to customize your experience combine to offer an unparalleled miniatures gaming experience. And, with forty-eight beautifully sculpted, unpainted figures, you'll be able to paint and customize your armies to bring an entirely unique touch to your games and enter the hobby of miniatures painting
