Kings of War: Vanguard Art Splash (Mantic Games)An interesting looking skirmish level fantasy miniatures system, from Mantic Games and set in the Kings of War universe, is on the horizon. Kings of War: Vanguard will not only allow players to command a smaller number of minis on the tabletop but also provide campaign rules if you’d like to tie your smaller battles to the larger scheme of your KoW clashes. Plenty of new minis are coming soon, including an awesomely huge giant, and the 128 page core book will carry an MSRP of $39.9 when preorders begin September 17th.

From Mantic:

Before the first charge, before weapons clash in brutal combat, before the victor gathers the spoils of war, battles will be won by the brave deeds of small, elite bands of fighters.

Commanders rely on their trusted warbands to disrupt the enemies’ vital supply routes, light beacons to warn comrades of enemy movement, and seize winning positions on the battlefield. If the raiding parties do their job well, the battle is won long before the troops have mustered.

Vanguard recreates cinematic, brutal skirmishes between small warbands of handpicked fighters, set in the same universe as our hugely popular Kings of War wargame. Players carefully select their squad of characters then fight it out to complete life or death missions – that can help turn the tide in the battle to come!

These can be played as one-off narrative missions between elite fighting forces, but Vanguard is also fully compatible with your larger games of Kings of War. By linking battles in Vanguard to your mass battles, thanks to the innovative interlinked campaign system, victory in Vanguard could mean you’ll gain access to better magical artefacts, new units or even the chance to deploy in better positions. Meanwhile, defeat could force your units to arrive late or your deployment options will be hampered.
