One thing I’ve mentioned a few times, is how long it can take between me finishing a project and it seeing the light of day. So, it’s good to be able to finally talk a little about Tribes of Legend, which has just been put up for pre-order on Amazon.
ToL is a collection of 3 different games together with painting guides, scenery building, and all the extra gaming goodness you might expect. The setting is the world of the Ancient Greeks, but as they viewed it rather than as you will see in academic texts. This means that armies include drunken centaurs and lithe Amazons as well as the bronze-clad warriors of the city states.
Of the three games, one is a mass battle game, one a skirmish between groups of a few warriors, and the last is a solo game in the ethos of the old Fighting Fantasy game books (though it is entirely different rules).
Foundry have done a complete new range of models to go with this, and one of the reasons this has taken a while is that it is illustrated with nicely-painted examples of the range throughout. This means that it’s a very pretty book, helped along by rather splendid art alike you see on the cover.
The release date is still a bit up in the air (I’m told that Amazon made up the one online). This is because it is on the slow boat from China (literally) as I type. Once it’s arrived and cleared customs then they’ll decide. Soon though.
