Wargames Foundry news: God of Battles release Spawns Tag Team

Wargames Foundry adds to the God of Battles line with the releases their Spawns Tag Team.

From the release:

The release day for Wargames Foundries God of Battles event was a great success and saw gamers from various areas of the country attend and battle it out. The smooth and dynamic play of the game meant that several battles were fought out to a bloody conclusion, much to the enjoyment of those watching.
From this small-key event saw the germination of an evolving idea, from the game designer jake Thornton and some enthusiastic gamers on the day leads to Foundry Arena.

Quote from Jake Thornton’s Blog:
“…from now on we’ll be having a God of Battles meet on the first Saturday of each month, at Foundry HQ in Nottingham.
“My idea is simply to play games of God of Battles with the various armies that I and others are building. Anyone is welcome and there is no charge. If you haven’t played the game and want a demo then feel free to potter along and we’ll show you how it plays. You don’t need to bring an army as there’ll be one about, I’m sure.
Alternatively, if you already have an army and/or know the game then the more the merrier. There are half a dozen tables to game on and lots of space so there’s no problem fitting an extra general in. You don’t have to come every time, just pop along when you can make it and fancy a scrap!
If we have enough regulars then I’ll probably try out some new ideas I’ve got, mainly based around campaigns and more scenarios. As GoB is so quick we’ll be able to get 2, 3 or 4 games each in a day, so a mini-campaign in a day is entirely possible.
Mainly though, this is just a place to come and play ”

Marcus the new manager of Wargames Foundry understandably has also expressed interest and excitement with this new project, and has agreed to not only offer the shop floor space and several tables for the games to be run on. Which for those with a sharp eye will recognise some of them from being featured on a Television show; But has even proposed an epic original Space Hulk game and an all day campaign of their wild west game system, The rules with No Name.

So exciting times with Foundry.

God of Battles designer’s notes articles by Jake Thornton

God of Battles designer Jake Thornton has posted some designer’s notes articles over in his weblog.

Feel free to ask questions 🙂

God of Battles release date announced

God of Battles, the upcoming mass combat fantasy game by Jake Thornton, has a release date: March 1st.

From the announcement:

Like 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.
