Introducing Broken Spirit Wargames & IMMORTAL

Hi guys and gals I am one very excited Wargamer right now as I get ready to introduce you to an AWESOME Wargames Company called Broken Spirit Wargames!!!

A Crusader Is Born…

As some of you may know I started off in the Wargaming World some 26 years ago when I picked up my first White Dwarf and the Marauder Miniatures Goblin King Chariot kit. With a love and passion for Games Workshop kits and systems I never felt the need to look elsewhere for my hobby fix, I knew other companies existed but never really paid them any attention………..that is until my crusade began a few years ago!! As I opened my eyes to the Wonderful World of Wargaming out there other, companies & game systems sprung in to my field of vision and it was a little daunting…..how do you choose? That is what my World of Wargaming Crusade is all about… highlighting the works of the alternative wargames companies out there to try to give you enough insight to decide if they are for you! Sometimes along the way I have been so blown away by a company or game that I fully endorse them and blow the horn for Wargamers to rally to their side…….this is one of those times!

So who are Broken Spirit Wargames?

Broken Spirit Wargames are a brand new company of dedicated Wargamers that create rule sets for existing miniature lines that currently do not have any. They are getting ready to launch their first game on Kickstarter in 2015 called IMMORTAL which uses the awesome Arthurian and Lucifer’s Wars miniatures from the guys over at Westwind Productions and the Dark Ages miniatures from Footsore Miniatures!

When asked about the companies ethos when rule writing Dean answers:

“Balance is the key, no overpowered units and the little guy should be able to pull the win from the jaws of defeat.” – I don’t know about you guys out there but this is such a refreshing change in a world of wargames with UBER Death Star units, etc. This is one of the Main Reasons why I have chosen to shine a Spotlight on this company!!

What is IMMORTAL?

This is the first publication for Broken Spirit Wargames, the game is set in 400ad in Dark Age Britain where six factions (Romano Brits, Saxon, Irish, Welsh,Picts and the Tribes of the Pennines) are all engaged in a bloody struggle to become the dominant faction. As the slaughter turns into a stalemate with none of the factions getting the upper hand, an ancient book is discovered. This book teaches the humans to summon the old gods back into existence, the Immortals.

The Immortals appear as gods of good and evil and turn brother against brother, father against son and church against king. Using the human soul’s to feed their war in the spiritual realm, the humans are used as pawns to further the Immortals plans.

The game is based around Westwind Productions fantastic Lucifer’s War range of miniatures and their Arthurian range, Footsore Miniatures have also let them use their incredible Dark Ages range. The game is a 28mm semi-skirmish tabletop wargame for which players will need between 15 to 30 miniatures a side, a 4×4 table, and around an hour and a half to play a battle.

The game is due for release in early 2015 as a full colour hardback book packed full of art, fluff and photographs of amazingly painted miniatures painted by the superbly talented Phil Campbell.

I for one am EXTREMELY excited for this game, It is my pick for 2015, will it be yours? Will you side with good or evil in your quest for dominance of Dark Ages Britain? Join me in the coming months for more articles about IMMORTAL!

Warzone Resurrection – BAUHAUS Army Commission Showcase

Well guys and gals a month has passed and I haven’t played a Wargame……….I am feeling serious withdrawl symptoms!!! I have however begun painting again and as those close to me know it is the painting side of the hobby that I enjoy the most and as such I am one happy Hobbyist! So without further ado I will begin this months blog post coming to you direct from Scorpius GLC’s “World of Wargming” Studio!

Untitled14Warzone Resurrection has been on my viewfinder since it originally went to Kickstarter, at that time I couldn’t invest but after an AWESOME Demo Day buy Ant and the guys from Leicester Phat Cats the other month I knew this game was for me!!! I set about deciding on factions and found it really difficult to choose just one as I really liked the Capitol, Dark Legion and Bauhaus. I finally decided on Capitol for myself and Dark Legion for my son (as he loved the Demo he had), so I saved up my pennies and bought the Rulebook, the Capitol Starter Set and the Dark Legion Starter Set……..but oh how I wish I could have got the Bauhaus as well……..well luckily for me I was given a commission to paint up a Bauhaus Army for Sunjeev from Portal Wargaming Centre!!

The brief from Suni was that he wanted the force to be bright and I had just the plan for this force…White and red armour with dark blue/grey uniform, to go with this I also went with destroyed Moon Base themed bases. Here are the models that I have painted as part of the commission, drop me a comment and let me know what you think!!

Thanks for taking your time to read this blog post and looking at my painting, I hope you like what you see as I really enjoyed this project! As I said above this commission allowed me to show the love that I had for the faction without having to buy a third faction!
