From the release:
The UK based miniature and games design company behind the acclaimed Secrets of the Third Reich system, has announced that after two years of development, the new and much anticipated gaming system is now ready for the gaming public to enjoy.
Set in a darkly Gothic Victorian London, the game pits factions from the forces of good and evil against each other, in a quest for power and influence. The game, which uses West Wind’s highly acclaimed range of 28 mm miniatures, includes an integrated campaign system. This enables players to pursue the aims of their faction through an almost infinite range of scenarios and settings. Taking its cues from Bram Stoker, Conan Doyle and the rich canon of Gothic horror, Empire of the Dead is set in a world where myth and fable take on a terrifying reality.
As part of the initial launch, the game will see a superb full colour, lavishly illustrated hard back set of rules, featuring evocative illustrations and full colour photographs. Supported by a range of full colour boxed starter sets and special characters. Announcing the launch, Andy Cooper the creative driver behind the game and MD at West Wind said, ‘The growth in skirmish games and the rich background of the Gothic horror genre, provide the perfect backdrop for Empire of the Dead. We wanted a game which enabled players to immerse themselves in the narrative of the game whilst facing the tactical and strategic challenges that gamers demand. Empire of the Dead offers a host of new challenges for both experienced and novice gamers.’
