Empires have fallen, and the land is broken. The great oathmarks that once stood as testaments to the allegiances and might of nations have crumbled into ruin. In this lost age, fealty and loyalty are as valuable as gold and as deadly as cold iron, and war is ever-present.

This year has seen some pretty interesting new tabletop treasures. Released later Spring, Oathmark from Osprey Publishing, has already made a notable presence. Created by Joseph A. McCullough, designer of Frostgrave and Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago, Oathmark is a mass-battle fantasy wargame that puts you in command of the fantasy army you’ve always wanted, whether a company of stalwart dwarves or a mixed force with proud elves, noble men, and wild goblins standing shoulder-to-shoulder in the battle-line. This concept separates Oathmark from the crowded wargaming hobby. And, hell, goblin riders fighting alongside dwarves? Why not? Oathmark offers straight forward skirmish mechanics and combat sequences, endless unit and army customization, and beautiful miniatures from North Star Military Figures.

Plastic 28mm sized Elves, designed to be used in the Fantasy Mass Battle game from Osprey Games, Oathmark: Battles of the Lost Age. This box set contains enough parts for you to build 30 Elf Infantry. We provide you with enough weapon options to make them all spearmen, all hand weapon and shield, all archers or any combination of the three. Each frame also contains a standard bearer and officer option. So you could have a giant unit of 30 Elf soldiers with an officer and standard bearer, or six units of 5 Elves with mixed weapons and a standard/ officer each! ox also contains 30 plastic bases, 25mm square, manufactured by Renedra. The figures are supplied unpainted and in kit form. You will need plastic cement to stick them together. The flag and shield designs are not supplied in the box. You can either create your own or buy the ones illustrated from North Star.

This game is approachable and fun – making it a great game for wargaming veterans and newcomers alike. The rulebooks have beautiful art and are very reasonably priced. Maybe you just like collecting miniatures? The plastic miniatures offered for this game are very affordable and highly detailed, making them great substitutes for Frostgrave, D&D, Pathfinder, etc. Whether you are into fantasy wargames or an RPG tabletop gamer looking for outstanding 28mm minis, I highly recommend you give this game a look.
