BattleScribe is a fast and powerful army list creator for tabletop wargamers.

MAYHEM_Armies of Mayhem_BattleScribe_BrentSpiveyOnce you have BattleScribe, head over to Wargame Vault and download the Armies of Mayhem file pack. Inside, you’ll find the BATTLE CHEST. This is one large list that contains profiles for various fantasy units, creatures, and races that can be built using the rules found in the Battle Chest Edition of Mayhem. These units follow all the unit construction rules found in the book. There are over 100 unique profiles that include: Dark Elves, Dwarves, Goblins, High Elves, Human Empire, Lizardmen, Monstrous Creatures, Orcs, Pirates, Keeps, Siege Engines, Strongholds, Undead, and Woodland Elves.

Bombshell Games previews new art and greens for Dark Alliance

Bombshell Games has some new preview greens as well as concept artwork up for Dark Alliance.

From the preview:

As some of you know, I’ve been working with with Steven Salotti of Microworld Games to create MAYHEM army lists for his 6mm fantasy line. What you probably don’t know is that this includes rules for both lines and miniatures not yet released. Intriguing- right? Well, Steve has been kind enough to let me give you a little peek at some of the concepts and greens for the upcoming Dark Alliance army. Behold!

One of the advantages of creating lists for a specific line of miniatures is that, due to finite options, you can add more ‘army specific’ rules to give each force resulting in more character, uniqueness, and varied play styles. darkalliance-warbeast-mayhem-green1Scale plays into this equation as well, and developing for the Microworld 6mm fantasy line means getting to focus on some of the large [and I mean really large] epic creatures and combats that just don’t happen at larger scales. Stay tuned for more images and information.

Mayhem and General’s Compendium Updated over on Bombshell Games

Bombshell Games updated their books for both Mayhem and General’s Compendium. Be sure you’re playing with the most up-to-date versions!

From the announcement:

MAYHEM had been updated with new Crown costs for the MOV and CQ characteristics and a new recommended starting game size of 200 Crowns. These values have been revised throughout all the various documents and builders. These cost revisions have prompted a change to the Axe weapon trait – make sure to check that out!

The General’s Compendium is updated as well, and it now contains advanced rules for standing orders, ‘setting’ your troops, and charges. Not only do these rules increase the tactical options available to you, but they allow you to increase the size of the forces you can field in battle.

As always, these updates are completely free of charge. To obtain them, simply return to Wargame Vault and download the updated files. I look forward to hearing what you think!
