You don’t fear anyone. That’s your problem. Fear is useful.
Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings is a new tabletop miniatures fantasy battle wargame.
After seeing Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings pop up around the traps I thought I’d contact Para Bellum Wargames, and to my surprise, soon found myself having a Skype chat with the director of the company. And what a pleasant talk we had about the joy of tabletop miniatures games and his dedication to this game. I came away very impressed by his enthusiasm, his openness to feedback, and what he had lined up for the future.
And they’ve certainly been churning out the minis. I can’t imagine the complexity of the logistics and the huge expense involved in setting up your own manufacturing processes and organising worldwide distribution. Despite this, one of the great things about the game are the prices compared to the ‘big boys’ in this field.
Before long a big box full of miniatures arrived on the doorstep, so allow me to share with you this huge unboxing. The starter set was their first product so the miniatures are a little static and have some obvious mold lines, but in the later expansions you can see big leaps forward in quality as the company hones its processes. The larger scale takes a little getting used to, but ranked up in columns and files these units look really impressive—especially the beautiful cavalry figures.
I’ll be continuing my coverage of Conquest with a construction video very soon, followed in time with some painting videos, then some battle reports and honest discussion of the game system. There’s lots to come, so check it all out here at the EOG!
