Our club just finished up a great campaign of the fantasy skirmish wargame, Kings of War: Vanguard, and as we gear up for our next campaign we'll be running some demos.

We'll be at Gamescape SF on Weds 8/14, 7:30pm and Sun 8/25 at 2:00pm.

Come join in - we'll have warbands and tables aplenty, and happily will explain the rules.

What is Kings of War: Vanguard?

Vanguard is the skirmish addition to the fantasy massed battle wargame, Kings of War. In this game, you'll lead elite warbands on dangerous missions to sabotage supply lines, rescue captives, or even capture a giant.

If you're familiar with Mordheim or Frostgrave, you get the idea, but with Mantic's deceptively simple-but-challenging game design sensibilities. Vanguard is classic fantasy skirmish, but with some really nifty action economy mechanics.

The core rules are free online, and it's pretty much compatible with any line of fantasy minis.

We'll also be starting a new campaign in September, and have a bunch of free goodies to give away to new players who join in!
