Tags : ffg runewars ranked battle

hello everyone !!!

A new players is in town, FFG is planning to release a Fantasy Miniatures Games with ranked battle ^^.
On the image we can see they plan to use similar rules as Xwing (ruler and Order wheels).
If they have the same sucess they had with Xwing, GW and PP can worry :D

Terrinoth is a land of legend. The earth remembers the march of glorious banners and brave deeds; it whispers of the valor of those who vanquished the darkness of the past. Its silent song kindles the embers of hope in those who would stand against the endless night. For forgotten magics and lost legacies wait to be rediscovered by those brave enough to seek them.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce RuneWars: The Miniatures Game, a new two-player miniatures game of epic, rank-and-file warfare set in the realm of Terrinoth!

For years, the armies of Waiqar the Undying have stayed within their borders, launching only minor raids across the border. But now, a nameless threat stirs within the Mistlands, and legions of undead cross into the realm of Terrinoth under Waiqar’s command! The Daqan Lords have sounded the call to war, and their finest generals lead armies of warriors and golems to take up defensive positions in the border territory of Roth’s Vale. The first battles of the next great war are about to begin.

RuneWars: The Miniatures Game is a game of battles between the great powers of Terrinoth. In each game, you and your opponent will gather armies of miniatures and lead them into battle—blocks of infantry will maneuver for position, cavalry wings will wheel and slam into a weakened flank, and monstrous rune golems or carrion lancers will smash through formations of lesser warriors. Innovative command tools, two distinct factions, and countless ways to customize your experience combine to offer an unparalleled miniatures gaming experience in RuneWars. Finally, with forty-eight beautifully sculpted, unpainted figures, you’ll be able to paint and customize your armies to bring an entirely unique touch to your games and enter the hobby of miniatures painting!

Issue Your Commands

Rather than commanding a small group of single figures that all move individually, RuneWars invites you to experience war on a grand scale. In every game, you’ll order blocks of figures to march, wheel, shift, and charge into battle, carefully maneuvering your forces to outflank and destroy your foes. Each block of figures is composed of a number of trays that your figures slot into, and as your unit enters battle and takes losses, you’ll remove figures and trays from the unit.

Obviously, maneuvering blocks of infantry, cavalry, and more exotic units marching in step will take both strategy and tactical skill, and to accomplish, this RuneWars offers an innovative command tools that allow you to plan every action your units take.

Every unit in RuneWars has a corresponding command tool, like the one you can see below. These command tools are composed of two parts: an action dial on the left and a modifier dial on the right. At the beginning of each round, you’ll set a command tool for each of your units by choosing an action and a modifier for each unit.

So, what do you think about this ?
I am hyped to the max !!!!
