Confrontation Returns in 2018

Confrontation is coming back to the tabletop in 2018!

It’s the return of a classic Skirmish level miniatures game with a new announcement – Confrontation is getting a Kickstarter in 2018:

Confrontation was originally developed by Rackham, a French miniature and RPG production company founded in 1997. It was a well received game but unfortunately for fans of Confrontation, Rackham dissolved in 2010.

The miniatures themselves were fantastic sculpts and very impressive. My personal introduction to the game was by our very own GentleBen. The last big update I remember was actually from GentleBen in 2012. That was involving a release of some of the miniatures from Legacy Miniatures.

Regardless, Confrontation has some fantastic miniatures that I wouldn’t mind seeing on the tabletop again. We’ll be keeping tabs on this one in 2018!


Kickstarter looks to be breathing new life into another older game – are you excited about the return of Confrontation?

  • Azatoth

    Those mini were quite a revelation style wise in those days.

  • Dr.Clock

    This is pretty exciting; I’ve got about 10 Confrontation minis that I worked into my Khorne army as Spawn and Flesh Hounds… three of them are in the works as Dark Mech Kataphrons. Lots of great sculpts in the line.

  • Sonic tooth

    Some of the minis are absolutely mindblowing. big sale of the legacy stuff on CMON although most of it is gone. I got myself the titan dragon for Xmas (dropped from 300euros to 60!!!). Best fantasy dragon miniature I’ve seen so far by a long shot. A fine steed for malekith or Elric conversions!

    This is one game where I would actually buy and paint metal miniatures, because those prepainted plastic ones for Age of Ragnarok were total crap. I sold all the Confrontation stuff I had years ago because I couldn’t find anybody to play against. Maybe this time it’ll catch on.

    • Matthew Pomeroy

      I am one of those turds who loves the prepaints as much as the metals. 😀

      • chris harrison

        You’ve got to be kidding. They were some of the worst looking flimsiest pieces of junk ever!

        • Matthew Pomeroy

          nope, I am serious I am even ordering them now from hong kong, and while some had “issues” I really love the syhar sighthounds (I also hate assmembling and painting models, I am pretty good at it but really liked the take out of box and play aspect) I think it is more apt to say that if confrotation took a crap in a box, then put the logo on it and added a card, I would likely buy it and be happy with it.

          • chris harrison

            I guess I have a different perspective because I considered painting to be both therapy and an accomplishment.

          • Matthew Pomeroy

            yeah i am more player than modeller

  • Matthew Pomeroy

    I am soooo happy I could cry 😀 my favorite game returning 😀

  • ZeeLobby

    Pretty excited for this. Never got into it the first time around, but this has the potential to beat out Rune Wars and actually give GW some fantasy competition outside of of WMH (which takes it too far into the competitive arena for me.

    • Matthew Pomeroy

      as big a fan as I am on Confrontation, It wont challenge GW as its target is waaay off. it is a small scale skirmish primarily of very small groups and playable on small boards, now the rag’narok concept of mass battle could be potentially threatenng. but I see it living in a harmonious symbiotic relationship.

      • ZeeLobby

        Yeah. I was so far down the GW wormhole when confrontation was big I honestly knew little about it, but looking back at the models and rules, I wish I had played. I def don’t see them unseating GW. Just wish we had more options. Couldn’t hurt!

        • Matthew Pomeroy

          its a hell of an option, the game is great and very immersive for both players, you are always doing something. it is far and away my favorite game, just acquired an ophidian army today 😀

  • dave long island

    Yay!! This is great news!! Those were great, great minis!

  • Adam Richard Corrigan

    I love my wulfen collection. Always wanted some of the other models.

  • Dennis J. Pechavar

    I used quite a few for my Mordheim models. Love the model line.
