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).
A couple of people have helped me a lot putting these together. Originally, Cory Gerleman gave me his invaluable help and valuable time in the making of this summary and the army card sets. And recently, Samuel Moreno has discovered a passion for the game and helped check the new versions, as well as coming up for rules for old armies that were never fully developed by Rackham. Thanks lads!
If you’re still playing Confrontation, enjoy!
Important Update: all the army cards were updated to new v3 versions and the rules summary updated to v1.3 in Jan 2020.
