Runewars Miniatures Game $99.95

“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!”

They really do make it look incredibly easy…

    Im just not a fan of the default paint scheme. Actually the alternative schemes in the games books are much better looking. And Sorastro’s job on YouTube look much better. There were two guys in store yesterday who already had beautiful looking armies though. Me… It’ll be a while.

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Yeah the models themselves are not my cup of tea either, but a better paint job would go a long way, so far they look like warcraft 3 models, and that just I dunno, makes me feel its a generic rts kinda thing. The art in the book looked nice minus the schemes. Will have to see how that demon army looks before I bite. The Elves are a start.

      • ZeeLobby

        Yeah. After years of more and more detailed GW minis I showed them to my friend whose not big on painting and he was like “man, I could actually paint these”. Lol. Def a different crowd.

        • Matthew Pomeroy

          I like these alot more than the “way too busy” GW models, especially the newer AoS, they seem too over the top to me. This game is simpler models but they do look really good when painted! it helps that the game is alot of fun too.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah. Not bad right. I mean for the price, they’re solid. And the game is actually a blast to play. Excited to see what else comes from FFG as they move forward.

          • Matthew Pomeroy

            I also do runebound and descent, so i am invested in the setting as well 😀 I hope FFG keeps it going.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah, we’re loving Descent right now. It’s a blast. Getting into the fluff a little too is great.

        • Seienchin

          Which is funny since to me AoS looks like Games Workshop is getting influenced by the over the top everything goes style Runewars has…

          • ZeeLobby

            There’s a difference in over the top model design and aesthetic, and simply gluing 800 spikes on something though. A perfect example is the new guilliman model, and all it’s Tzeentchy curls.
