You may have noticed that Westwind/Forged in Battle have been quiet for a while…
Thanks to a very successful Kickstarter campaign last year (359 backers, £53,687 pledged), Andy, Wendy and the team at Westwind have been busy sculpting a brand new range of 15mm Ancients figures for their War & Empire range.
- Later Republican Romans
- Spartacus Gladiators
- Early Persians
- Early Greeks
- Republican Romans
- Later Persians
- Later Greeks
A total (currently) of 167 individual packs. There is also a accompanying range of buildings and accessories, including villagers and siege engines.
As well as individual packs, there are a total of 29 Starter Armies available, and 6 smaller Starter Sets.
This is very much a ‘big bang’ release – everything you will need to start ancient gaming in any of several periods. Whilst War & Empire are also producing their own rules, these figures will also be ideal for rules such as ‘To The Strongest’ and ‘Sword & Spear’ which have both been recently featured on the podcast.
They are currently up for pre-order on the Forged in Battle website, with a release date of May 5th. However, they should be available to purchase at Salute this coming Saturday.
We are hoping to speak to Andy & Wendy Cooper about this new range on the podcast very soon.
In the mean time, they are well worth a look. Here are some examples:
