Confrontation and Rag’narok merge into one game.
It was very sad to witness the demise of Rackham, a French company that made spectacular metal miniatures, after its ill-advised switch to a new range of pre-painted plastic miniatures to support its two miniatures games AT-43 and Confrontation: The Age of the Rag’Narok. Yet the dramatic fall of the company has overshadowed how good these games still are, and, with a bit of retouching, how perfectly acceptable the miniatures are for gaming.
I already have a huge collection of the scifi AT-43 miniatures and enjoy that game a lot, so I began buying into the fantasy game, which has a similar set of rules … and it wasn’t long before I was gobbling up a lot of the old metal minis as well to enlarge my armies. Here’s my rules summary, along with the game’s unit cards, redesigned in a similar way to how I redesigned the AT-43 cards.
Here you’ll find complete sets of army cards for the five main factions: the human Griffins of Akkylannia and the Lions of Alahan, the predatory Wolfen of Yllia, the twisted alchemists of the Scorpions of Dirz, and the horrific Undead of Acheron (the Ram).
The excellent Cory Gerleman gave me his invaluable help and valuable time in the making of this summary and these army card sets. Many thanks Cory.
If you’re still playing Confrontation, enjoy!
(I’m in the process of updating the unit cards to an improved v2 design – only the Scorpion and Wolfen armies to go. Stay tuned for more updates.)
