PakEX – Introducing Kings of War, by Mantic Games.
Let’s kick off with a description from Mantic: “rally your forces to fight epic battles in the best and biggest fantasy mass-battle game. Choose your side and then command an army of Mantic miniatures to represent incredible armies such as the stoic and pious Basileans, or plot your opponent’s downfall with the wicked forces of the Abyss. With a huge variety of models and armies to choose from and many stories to tell, Kings of War is truly an amazing experience”
Kings of War (commonly abbreviated to KoW) is a fantasy wargame played with armies of elves, dwarfs, undead, and more fighting out battles on a play area a massive 6 foot long and 4 foot wide (that’s roughly 180cm by 120cm). Kings of War is a two-player game that takes one to two hours to play. Players will both field an army made up of units of infantry, cavalry, dragons, and monsters of all shapes and sizes against each other in one of a number of objective driven scenarios.
These games are a visual treat, unlike many games this is very three-dimensional. The playfield will be filled with rolling green hills, forests, buildings, and more; the armies themselves then go a step beyond with everything hand-painted and assembled. The average infantry model you’ll see is about 30mm tall, with some giants and dragons easily around 20-30cm tall!
