Tactical Maneuvers

Our extensive preview coverage first examined the unique maneuver tools in Runewars Miniatures Game. Every turn, you will issue commands to your units on the battlefield. But your armies will find little success in charging mindlessly forward to face their foes. Luckily, Runewars Miniatures Game provides innovative tools to give you complete and precise control over your units.

In Runewars Miniatures Game, your command tools are the most important asset that you have at your disposal. Every unit has a completely unique command tool, and by setting its dials, you’ll determine exactly how your units act, whether they’re launching arrows, incanting powerful magics, or spurring their horses into a crushing cavalry charge.

Next, we looked how movement works in Runewars Miniatures Game. Movement is one of your most important concerns in any miniatures game. The game is played on a flat surface covered with terrain, rather than a board with spaces, meaning the precise positioning of your units can make the difference between victory and defeat. The most skilled commanders pay careful attention to how their units can move, and with innovative movement templates, strategically deploying and marching forces has never been easier.

Battle for Glory

Next, we looked at combat  in the realm of Terrinoth.  Whether through a rain of arrows, a flash of steel, or powerful magic, bloodshed is a common sight on the fields of Terrinoth. Every felled enemy brings you one step closer to victory, and every fallen ally pushes you toward the brink of defeat.

Next, we examined setup and victory conditions in Runewars Miniatures Game via objective and deployment cards. Both of these variables ensure that no two skirmishes in Runewars Miniatures Game will be the same, with deployment cards altering the start of a game, and objective cards influencing the end.

Choose Your Forces

Finally, we examined the two factions found in Runewars Miniatures Game Core Set—the armies of the Daqan Lords and the revenant legions of Waiqar the Undying.

The brave warriors of the Daqan Lords march proudly for the baronies they serve. The thundering hooves of the Oathsworn Cavalry, the brute magical strength of Rune Golems, the deadly formations of Spearmen, and the rage of Hero Kari Wraithstalker all contribute to one of the finest and most disciplined forces ever assembled in Terrinoth.

Opposing the Daqan Lords are the forces of Waiqar the Undying. Undead warriors serving a master cursed long ago, the press of Waiqar's forces advance to the eerie sounds of the shambling bones of reanimate warriors and the terrifying hiss of undead arrows. When their enemies are confronted by the pure size of the vile Carrion Lancers and the unmistakable power and speed of General Ardus Ix’Erebus, fear finds a home in the hearts of all who would oppose them.

These two forces are yours to command in Runewars Miniatures Game Core Set, to lead to glorious victory on the battlefield.

Finally, we took a look at the design process behind Runewars Miniatures Game with a behind the scenes video, which not only gave a glimpse how Runewars Miniatures Game came to life, but showed off some of the Core Set's fully painted models.

As for the future, all aspiring generals can expect continued Runewars Miniatures Game support through expansions, not just for the two factions found in the Core Set, but additional factions like the recently announced Latari Elves. More Runewars Miniatures Game news will be coming soon and frequently, so check back to our website frequently.
