Write your legend in the blood of the fallen!
When is a miniatures battle game not a miniatures battle game? Well, when it doesn’t have … miniatures. This game has everything else for an epic little bash between Ancient Greek and mythological foes however, and there are rumours that it’s going to be rebooted with miniatures via Kickstarter sometime soon. In the meantime, you’ll have to do with small, hard to distinguish tokens hacking at each other.
There are some very nice ideas here though, including a set of cards for each unit that you cycle through as the unit is wounded, and a card-based activation system. It also comes with a small campaign. And the artwork on the cards is stunning.
This summary includes the rules from the two expansions.
Managed to get hold of a copy of Mythic Battles. UK price was £100+ but I found one in Italy for £20 and even with £9 postage still much cheaper. Just arrived. Hoping to use some with Print and Play provided by Monolith. If nothing else I have a game and spare set of 10 dice for when I get hold of MB: Pantheon.
I probably would have sold you mine!
Didn’t you like the game? Anyway… I think postage from down under would be a tad more.
I’ve never got around to playing it, but I thought the new version would make it somewhat obsolete…
My printer won’t take replacement inks and I was tempted to try print and play which could be expensive and i would rather have some professionally printed activation cards anyway.
@UH… Did you ask for a refund on Mythic Battles: Pantheon due to the excessive cost of shipping it to NZ?
No, I sucked it up. But I certainly didn’t get any extras.
I restricted myself to the Compendium as a source of scenarios.
