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.
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.
