Description Edit | History

Kings of War is the miniatures wargame from Mantic Games. Designed to go along with the accompanying 28mm Fantasy Ranges the game features players maneuvring large blocks of miniature soldiers around the battlefield in search of victory.

Kings of War is a new concept for mass battle miniature wargaming — a game that is both easy to learn and fast to play! With few and simple rules, there is little to get in the way of the fun and slaughter. Kings of War is a challenging game of strategy, where you can pit your wits against your opponent without devoting half of your brain power to remember a plethora of convoluted rules.

And that’s not all, the innovative turn structure allows you to play Kings of War using a time-keeping tool (like a stopwatch or a chess clock) to time your moves. As the seconds tick away, the pressure and excitement this adds makes 'Kings of War' unlike any other large-scale wargame you’ve ever played before.

Units are given simple ratings such as 'Melee Attack', 'Defense' and 'Nerve' and then augmented with special abilities that characterize the different fantasy races that inhabit the world. In 2012, the "beta" rules were updated and a full ruleset was released. Abbreviated rules are available on the mantic website, and the full army lists for many factions are also available for download. Currently army lists are available for Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Abyssal (evil) dwarfs, Goblins, Orcs, Twilight Kin (evil elves) and the Undead hordes. An expansion includes an Ogre army list.

3 Kings of War counters
Based on 2nd edition rules. These are approximately 1" square counters in MS Excel format. They are meant to be double-sided and used as memory joggers for use during play. Recommend mounting page 1 first (the one with the grid lines) and then push a pin through the outside corner of all 4 corners grid lines to get your alignment post marked. This is used to mount side 2. Side 2 you will see a "V" at each of the 4 outside corners grid lines to push a pin through the of side 2 and use these holes to lineup side 1 and side 2 so that when cutting them out they align. Suggested materials to use for mounting are: US postal medium flat rate box, foamies from the craft store, or some type of poster like board at 1/8" thick. A spray adhesive works best, I use a 3M product you can buy at...

3 Blank Force List
I, for the life of me, couldn't find a blank roster sheet for Kings of War so I made one in LibreOffice. It's very simple (meant to use less ink). Feel free to offer suggestions for improvements.
