Warheads – I no longer know where the hobby is going. But I like it

May 17, 2010

From the site: Warheads: Medieval Tales is a fast and fun two player tabletop game for players of all ages and abilities. Every two months we’ll release a full-colour, lavishly illustrated magazine in which you get to tell the story of Hugo of Deangard and his bitter rival Gui le Batard, as they gather followers to fight each other and go on amazing quests.Over the course of six issues the story unfolds with you in charge of the characters’ destinies and development.

Each magazine contains all the rules you need to play the battles and characters contained in it and is accompanied by two boxed sets of uniquely-styled Warheads gaming miniatures.

The rules are fast and easy to learn, and they build over the lifetime of the game, so you don’t have to learn everything before you start. Warheads: Medieval Tales blends the best of story driven role-playing and tabletop wargaming.

Some background: Medieval Tales is set in late 11th century Britain, where men were bold and sheep were nervous. The first generation of British Normans grew up in this land to inherit the manors and castles of their fathers, the original conquering knights of William’s army. We’ve set our tales around the area known as the Welsh Marches, far from the centre of power in London, and with a reputation for lawlessness and strife. This a land to which robber barons and mercenaries from the continent flocked in the wake of the conquest, seeking to grab what land and plunder they could. It’s a land of hunts and wars. populated with rival knights, Saxon and Welsh rebels and bandits, dangerous beasts, magic and miracles. Oh, and let’s not forget the dragons, witches, unicorns, trolls and numerous other beings of fable and folklore that stalk the dark woods and bowers.
