God of Battles Official Release Date!

GoB_LOGO on white webLike it says in the title, God of Battles finally has a date set for its official release: the 1st of March 2013.

A handful of copies have snuck out already, and there’s even a review of the book online (though he hadn’t played the game when he wrote it). For most people, however, it’s been unavailable. But there’s not long to wait now.

To celebrate this momentous event, there will be an event at Foundry HQ on the 1st and 2nd of March. I’ll be there on both days to talk to anyone who will listen about GoB and run folk through the rules. Most of the demo armies seem to have gone walkabout with the change in management at Foundry last year, but I’m sure we’ll find something to use.

Anyway, just me doing my happy dance 🙂

    Huzzah! So, is this a mass combat system only, or can it work for skirmish battles with only a handful of individually based models per side? Do we have to wait for ‘Eternal Battle’ for that?

    • Quirkworthy says:

      God of Battles is a mass combat game rather than a skirmish game, though for that kind of game the model count is fairly low. Typical small armies would be about 50 models.

      Eternal Battle is a dedicated skirmish set.

    Will be there, Good system, had a chance to pick up a copy a couple of months back,great system, very much a coffee and cake afternoon game. For me this is great as sometimes it’s all you want.

    • Quirkworthy says:

      Thanks Matt. It’s intended to be a fun game rather than hard-nosed tournament challenge. That’s not to say there are no tactical challenges, just that it’s simple and fast play.

    I shall be there. I’ve got one 24 point army at the moment and hope to have a second one by then, though whether they’ll both be painted is a different story…

    • Quirkworthy says:

      Bring and battle is always fun 🙂

      We’ve not finalised how many tables and staff and whatever will be there yet, but I’m sure we’ll be able to find a nice table for you to play on.

      24 points is the place to start. Nice and compact yet still includes all the rules and most of the challenges of a bigger battle. Have you got your camp and baggage done too?

      • Ben says:

        I’m going to use some Renedra tents as camps, at least until I have the time to make something more characterful for each race (are we allowed to talk about them yet lol). Baggage still needs to be sorted.

        If I get both painted in time and demand exceeds supply on the day then I’m happy for them to be used to demo.

        • Quirkworthy says:

          I think we can talk about whatever we like now, regarding GoB. I’ve certainly got a long list of articles I want to write on it, and that should touch on most aspects 🙂

          Tents would be a fine start for camps – at least they are visually obvious. As you say, not characterful for most armies, but a good stand in to get you going. There’s also bound to be stuff available for DBA camps too. Mostly it’ll be 15mm, though not all. Foundry’s civilians and animal ranges are good places to look at as well, and the specific arm you’re doing might have a vignette you could include.

          Was it Undead you were doing?

        • Ben says:

          I’m currently painting up my Mantic Undead for one force and in the process of sorting out some T’lekkan for the other. I’ve a feeling the T’lekkan Priest might come with some vignette stuff that could make for a good camp based on the pics in the book.

        • Quirkworthy says:

          IIRC the T’lekkan vignette was unfortunates getting warrior larvae attached. Yum!

        • Ben says:

          That’s the one I’m thinking of. I’m trying to find a manufacturer that does giant insects that I can green stuff some baggage on but no luck yet.

        • Quirkworthy says:

          Well of course for the T’lekkan, baggage wouldn’t really be bags and parcels. They aren’t a tool using race, so it’s more likely to be cocooned victims for snacking on later. Perhaps they construct pens or walls in a similar fashion to their nests? Worth some pondering.

    I’ve started a plog documenting my attempts to have armies ready for the open day. I hope it’s not a problem to post a link here for anyone who is interested?
