From the creator of Frostgrave and Osprey Games comes a new fantasy wargame that will let you field an army you have always wanted!
Oathmark, created by Frostgrave’s Joseph McCullogh, is a mass-battle fantasy wargame that will have dwarves, goblins, elves, and men campaigning to expand their realms and controlling what they conquer. The part that is drawing potential players’ attention is the ‘field the army you have always wanted’ promise. Essentially, if you want men and goblins fighting alongside each other, you can. Elves and dwarves? Sure, why not.
Currently, the only faction available for pre-order is the Dwarves. Goblins will be the next in line. The Dwarven kits come in Regiment, Brigade, and Army bundles. Champions and special characters can be ordered individually or in bundles. All miniatures are 28mm and come in hard plastic or metal. Transfers are available as well. Sadly, we have now idea of the mechanics and lore of Oathmark but McCullogh broke down some of what we can expect to see on his blog, The Renaissance Troll. Here is what he had to say:
It’s true, I am currently designing a mass-battle fantasy game as part of my job for Osprey Games. I don’t want to talk too much about it at present, because it is still in the early stages of development. It is still going to be a long time before a set of rules hits the market, and many elements can, and probably will, change from now until then.
That said, for the curious, I can make a few statements about which I am ‘mostly’ confident.
- Oathmark is a ‘rank and file’ game, meaning that most figures will be organized into units that will fight in blocks.
- However, the basic element of the game is the figure. Each figure has its own stats, and casualties are removed individually.
- The standard base for most ‘human-ish’ sized figures is 25mm square, so figures mounted on round 25mm, or smaller, bases will be usable with movement trays.
- The game features a bunch of different races – four main ones to start – each of which have unique stats.
- There will be a full campaign system, which involves building your kingdom as well as your army. (Assuming I can get all of it to work!).
- This game has no connection to Frostgrave other than sharing a few deep routed philosophies about what I believe makes a fun fantasy wargame. (Plus most of the plastic kits for the two games will be compatible!).
