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. 

RuneWars: The Miniatures Game is a two-player miniatures 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 in RuneWars. Finally, 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!

  • Matthew Pomeroy

    Everything I have seen and heard about this game gives me a warm fuzzy, I love the setting as I play the other games in the Terrinoth. I am thinking this will be my replacement for warhammer since AoS certainly is not. now just have to dump a few useless AoS forces and jump back into mass battle.

    • ZeeLobby

      This is me to a T right here. My group really misses ranked fantasy company and KoW just wasn’t scratching that itch. Very excited to see where this goes.

  • Krizzab

    only i hope they dont force buy other armies units and characters to have the cards. Too many trash for a miniature games imho.

    • ZeeLobby

      They already said that cards available to a faction will only be in that faction’s boxes. So you may have to buy calvary for a card you want to put on your spearmen. But I don’t see why you wouldn’t want calvary for your faction at some point anyway.

    Wow, how much did FFG pay you to run what is essentially a commercial for their game disguised as an article?

    • Daniel R Weber

      You mean the video that FGG made? Line the GW videos made by GW posted in articles aren’t commercials. Where on the doll did FFG touch you?
