Architects of War has released their new American Civil War game entitled American Uncivil War (I see what they did there).
Go check it out and see the release specials they've got going on.


From the release:

American Uncivil War is a set of Skirmish Rules for the American Civil War, that was inspired by such movies as "The Horse Soldiers" and Shenandoah. It allows you to play games with a few individual miniatures or hundreds of miniatures in formation, or a mix of both. It encourages the use of scenarios like foraging parties, spies, bushwackers, supply raids, missions behind enemy lines and many others. There are lots of character attributes such as Dead Eye Shot, Rogue, Cowardly, Despicable, Tracker , to mention just a few. There are rules for looting and loot counters, which can be used to run a scenario by themselves. The rule book is a stunning 128 pages of full color accompanied by a card deck, and features everything from the rules to hobby tips, and contains dozens of beautiful photographs of miniatures and terrain. The rules are quick to learn and easy to use, and generate a wealth of possible games to play. There is an accompanying 9 pack miniature range of characters, ruffians, deserters, troops and even a surgeon. These miniatures add flavor to the games, but are not a necessity to play. We encourage you to use the rules with any 28mm Civil War Miniatures you own. We also stock the Perry Miniatures ACW range, as well as a host of beautiful scale plastic and resin period terrain pieces. Follow the link to find out more. You will also be able to watch videos of a flip through of the rulebook with commentary as well as some game play and rules introduction.

Architects of War is now 18 months old and we have enjoyed every minute of it. We endeavor to bring you the best 28mm historical miniatures available combined with our own terrain and accessory kits. We are very grateful to the response we have received from our many customers, both hobbyist and Trade accounts. Support from our trading partners Perry Miniatures, Gripping Beast, Renedra, and Warlord Games has been extraordinary and we hope to keep serving all of you for years to come.

However, it’s time we split like some weird Amoeba monster so we can pursue some other things.

We are establishing a brother company to Architects of War called AlienDungeon. This new company will allow us through a separate web site to release and retail products in the Adventure, Sci-Fi and Fantasy market where we hope to make lots of new friends.

We are off to a running start by introducing our new Frightmares line of Fantasy terrain and Pan Galactic Geographic*, a range of HARD Sci-Fi terrain, miniatures and vehicles. And since we are delving into the Sci-Fi/Fantasy market, the Woodbine Design Science Fiction Range is now being stocked by us. And last but certainly not least, we will be carrying the complete collection of “dungeoneering” figures from Otherworld Miniatures. The Otherworld Miniatures sculpts are fantastically sculpted, modern takes on classic designs. We are very excited to be able to offer all of these items for sale at Cold Wars and our web store soon after.
