New Challenges Await You

Get Ready for a New Season of Runewars Miniatures Game Organized Play


The earth remembers the march of glorious banners and brave deeds; it whispers of the valor of those who vanquished the darkness of the past.

Terrinoth is a land of legend, built upon the achievements of near-mythical heroes and powerful magic. It is a land scarred by many battles and betrayals—the memories of which echo through the ages. And now those echoes return harder and sharper and louder than ever. Waiqar leads his undead armies against the Daqan Lords, and an ancient evil rises beyond the Ru Plains…

Chill winds blow, and the mists they carry have an evil reputation. They billow and curl like a living thing, but they hide the dead that lie beyond. They hide the truth that now faces us: this is a new age of battle. The coming years are destined to make their way into legend—and their clashes and conflicts will soon roar to life with the upcoming season of Organized Play for the Runewars Miniatures Game.

Where will you stand when the forces of Terrinoth collide? Contact your local game stores now to learn when they'll be hosting events for Runewars Miniatures Game, and start your march toward battle, glory, and prizes!

Strategic Encounters

At the heart of the 2018 Season One Runewars Miniatures Game Organized Play program, you will find the Challenge Kit. Like a runebound shard, the Runewars Miniatures Game Challenge Kit channels the magic of Terrinoth to your game night. It inspires the troops, raises their morale, and readies them for battle.

Each Challenge Kit supports as many as three events, each designed for up to eight players. If you know your group is larger than eight players, you can ask your favorite game store to order extra Challenge Kits to ensure that everyone enjoys full prize support because—importantly—you don't have to conquer all your foes to discover these new treasures. You gain prizes simply for participating, demonstrating your fighting spirit, painting your army, and, only then, for laying your enemies to waste.

At each Strategic Encounter event, you can complete as many as five achievements:

  • Enroll in the tournament.
  • Use a painted army.
  • Inspire your army (by cheering the name of your faction).
  • Win in the tournament's first round.
  • Win in the tournament's second round.

For each achievement you complete, the event organizer checks a box to the right of your name on the sign-up sheet. This is noteworthy because—in a place as prone to chaos as Terrinoth's battlefields—after you claim the Core prizes for participating, you can win one or more Elite prizes if the number next to one of your check boxes is pulled in a random drawing.

  • Event One: Alternate art objective card, Up in Flames, and alternate art deployment card, Mutual Reinforcements.
  • Event Two: Alternate art objective card, Conquest, and alternate art deployment card, Overextended.
  • Event Three: Alternate art objective card, Gain Ground, and alternate art deployment card, Gain Ground.

You can also earn Elite prizes by winning both rounds of the tournament or by winning the day's painting contest.

  • Extended art Leonx Riders.
  • Set of five acrylic Mark of Vengeance condition tokens (from the Wraiths Unit Expansion).

With so much magical treasure at stake, you can expect your Strategic Encounters to be absolutely action-packed. Charging cavalry. Dread necromancy. Cunning commands. Frenzied demons. You can expect to find all this—and more—when you attend Organized Play events for the Runewars Miniatures Game.
