The call to war has been sounded, and on July 25 at 3:00pm EST, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game (ASOIF:TMG) from CMON and Dark Sword Miniatures, Inc, launches on Kickstarter. Based on the hit novels by George R.R. Martin, ASOIF:TMG will let fans experience their favorite characters and the world they live in like never before.
The War of the Five Kings began with the death of King Robert I in 298 AL. Westeros was plunged into chaos as different noble Houses, each with their own claim to the crown, fought to place their leader on the Iron Throne. Few families have more history and more reason to fight in the War of the Five Kings than the Starks and the Lannisters.
In the ASOIF:TMG Starter Set - Stark vs Lannister, players will take control of either House and fight for honor and glory on the battlefield. Each army can be assembled with different Combat and Non-Combat Units. The soldiers you put on the field will make a big difference in the strategies you can employ. However, behind-the-scenes tactical maneuverings and political subterfuge will play as big a role in the outcome of the war as any blades, armor, or arrows will.
Hailing from the North, the Starks use their speed and aggression in combat. They take the battle to the enemy where they can, secure in the knowledge that their cause is just. The Lannisters of Casterly Rock, rely on trickery and counter attacks, opting to wear down their opponents and destroy their morale. To win this war, a General needs to understand their army, compensate for their weaknesses, and take advantage of their strengths.
Leading up to the Kickstarter launch, we’ll continue to share more details of the Units, Tactics, and Scenarios. ASOIF:TMG is a collaboration of some of the most accomplished minds in the gaming industry today. Whether you’re a fan of the book series, or new to the land of Westeros, you will find yourself drawn in to this new miniatures game.
The conflict begins when A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game launches on July 25 at 3:00pm EST, with more expansions featuring iconic material from the hit novels and organized play when the game arrives at retail in 2018. Answer the call to war, pick up arms, and prepare for battle. The calendar may say July, but winter is coming.
