Wrath of Kings

In any army, you're going to have the elite units. Those that take on extra training and get extra equipment. This month's releases for Wrath of Kings epitomize the "elite" ethic. Both House Nasier and House Goritsi are getting new units. Check 'em out.
As we should all know, A Song of Ice and Fire is not CMON's first foray into a miniatures game. They're long-standing game, Dark Age, as well as Wrath of Kings, are both still being developed. They've had a couple panels for these two games, hosted by Bryan Steele, Dave Taylor, and David Doust. There's quite a lot going on for you to check out.
We're officially a week into March. Seems like a good time to get the word out about the releases that will be happening this month. At least, CMON thinks so (and I certainly agree). They've put up a short video showing off what new box sets will be available for Wrath of Kings.
Wrath of Kings: Rising Conflicts will be releasing soon. With it will be plenty of new things to add to your forces. But this is more looking back on old releases, but in a new way. Since the game's release, thousands of gamers have played probably a couple hundred-thousand games of Wrath of Kings. Even the most thorough playtesting regimen can't compare, and so certain things might be found that weren't found originally. Well, those cracks have been filled in and a new version of the rulebook, as well as the various stat cards and motivations have been updated on the game's website.
So, it's coming up to 8pm. Day 2 is definitely in the books for Gen Con 2016. It's been a very busy day. I'm tired, but still pretty amped about everything that's gone on. And I'm sure you all would like to know about some of it. There's been about a billion things to see. So, relatively, here's a rather small percentage. More will come tomorrow.
Well, yesterday was quite a whirlwind of activity. Nothing but nonstop activity and excitement here at the 2nd day of the CMON Expo. There's lots to do and see, so let's show some of it off.
There are many awesome things about the CMON Expo. Getting information about future games and game releases from the panels is one of them. The first panel here today is being given by Dave Taylor about future releases for the miniatures games Dark Age and Wrath of Kings. So, let's dive in.
Time and time again you have seen me laud the decision of companies coming out with two-player starter sets for their games. You get pretty much all you need to get you and an opponent playing a game as soon as possible. Well, Wrath of Kings has themselves a brand new 2-player starter that you can pick up now.
A couple weeks ago at Adepticon, I posted up some photos of the display case for Wrath of Kings. A lot of people were "Oooh!"ing and "Aaah!"ing at them. Well, the first releases of figures from those photos are now available.
Hey everyone! It's been a very busy morning here at Adepticon. I've already seen some awesome armies, some cool, new models, and talked to some great people who obviously love our hobby. If you're not following our Facebook page than you've been missing out.
What sort of things have there been? Well, there's...
There are many crazy things that live in our oceans. Just the other day I saw this story about some neon-green-eyed fish-thing that they brought up from the depths.
Yeah, I really have no desire to go swimming in the ocean, thankyouverymuch. Hell, I might run into a Neritic Horror! At least if that did happen, though, the preview posted up for Wrath of Kings will let me know how to deal with it.
As you've seen me say before, I love 2-player starters. My first foray into a miniatures game was splitting a 2nd edition 40k starter with my friend. Well, the fellows over at CoolMiniOrNot have created a new 2-player starter set for Wrath of Kings. It's got pretty much everything you need to get playing right away with some Nasier on Goritsi action.
Though I don't get to have it all that often, I do love seafood. In particular, I love shellfish. However, this is one crustacean that's just as likely to try and eat me as I am to eat him. A new preview for Wrath of Kings has been posted. It's the Shell Cracker for Hadross.
In Wrath of Kings, Resilience can very much mean the difference between keeping a figure on the field and having them taken off as a casualty. Sure, there are your wounds backing you up, but if you've got a good Resilience score, you might never have to worry about taking a wound. Well, in any good arms race, if there's a good defense, there's going to be an offense created to try and crack it. That's where the Arkazan Greatwing comes in. It's also what we get a preview of today.
My first ever purchase for a miniatures game was splitting a 2-player box set (of the 2nd edition 40k box, actually). They're ridiculously handy for getting you and your friend into a game. We didn't have any tape measures or dice or anything like that, but the set had everything we need. The same can be said for the new Honor and Treachery set that's been announced for Wrath of Kings.
The previews for the next set of releases for Wrath of Kings continue coming. Goritsi is featured this time around. Pack Master Kozakar is a new character who specializes in fast deployment of the troops around him. He's able to run ahead of the group and then call others to him, as you'll see when you look at his stat card below the break.
This Con Season may be over, but it's not going to be long before next year's starts up. With how wide the "Con Season" is, it barely ends at all. Besides, you gotta plan ahead for these things. You can't just wake up the day before an event and think, "Yeah, I'll go and get into all the events I want." Well, sometimes you can, but it's not a very good idea. Anyway, event registration is open for CoolMiniOrNot's events for Adepticon next year.
If you want to get the cool toys, you have to be able to find out where they're being sold. Well, CMON Inc. and EBS Hobbies are teaming up to bring UK gamers the CMON minis games. These are Dark Age And Wrath of Kings.
The first expansion book for Wrath of Kings is on its way. The five major houses are gearing up for war. New soldiers are hitting the battlefields, ready to defend or conquer, depending on what's needed at the time. One group that doesn't seem like the "sit around and wait to defend something" group would be the Pelgarth Brutes, of which we are getting a preview of.
Though the focus right now might be on The Others, that doesn't mean that CoolMiniOrNot isn't busy working on its other properties. For example, Wrath of Kings, their fantasy miniatures game is starting to get ready for a new expansion. So what sort of things can you expect from this new book? Well, things like Gorbal the Rampager.
While, for a lot of people, the convention may seem to end at Gen Con, that's really not the case. There's still shows after that. One of them is the NOVA Open, held in Arlington, VA. Many different gaming companies will be there holding events. CoolMiniOrNot is one of them. They've posted up their events schedule, so you can be prepared.
Gen Con is fully underway now. The first day went by in a flash. The energy in the air was palpable. Everyone I've talked to agrees that this year is much busier than last. When the doors open, there's a huge rush as all the eager gamers head to the various booths in order to get the latest and greatest. One booth that attracted a lot of attention was CMON's. With lots of new games available for the first time, the line quickly wrapped around the whole double-booth that they have.
I told you that gaming companies were going to be putting up their announcements and such for Gen Con. Well, here's another one. This time around it's CMON. They've posted up both their pre-releases they'll have at the show, as well as the various events they've got planned.
Wrath of Kings, the fantasy miniatures game from CMON, is getting a bit of an expansion this month. Each faction is getting a new unit box to add to their arsenal in their bid to take over the ancient throne and unite all 5 houses back together under one single leader.
If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
Yeah, ask your parents about that song. Anyway, whether you have flowers in your hair or not, if you're in San Francisco this weekend, be sure to stop by KublaCon for all sorts of fun gaming to be had. CMON will be there with plenty of events to keep you entertained. Also, they've teamed up with Game Kastle. For the first time ever, if you buy CMON products from the Game Kastle booth, you can pick up CMON special promotional miniatures from them!
