OATHMARK
« on: March 13, 2020, 10:53:42 PM »
The new game from Joe MaCullough - the guy who made Frostgrave and Ghost Archipelago - is about to drop mid April.

The intention is to launch at the Salute show at Excel in London on April 18th, but there must be serious doubts about whether a gathering of over 4000 'gamers' is going to happen, even if the 'unwashed' tag is grossly overstated.

Northstar have been releasing figures for some while now, some good plastic box sets, and some metal command figures.

A gentle intro interview and if you hunt there are some guides to the rules system on facebook.

It looks like it has potential to give us a large battle fantasy game, and so I thought it might be worth starting a thread and seeing what the interest is like.


There may be a case for having a rethink about the "Empire at War" boards.
Comments welcome

Sounds interesting.  I like the idea that it is a Dark Ages fantasy world, and not a high medieval nor renaissance with gunpowder.

As I got an Oathmark undead warrior as a free sample with my Frostgrave models I was looking for some information about this and found this also for people that want to see how this goes (still need to watch most of it myself)

Anyone tried out Oathmark?

Also funny that Oathmark is under Skirmish & Warband, when the game is full-fledged rank-and-file with regiments.

I suggest the "Kings of War" section be renamed "Non-Warhammer Fantasy Battles" or "Other Fantasy Battles", and Oathmark moved there. :-)

Live in peace and prosper.

Zygmund ... an interesting idea, going to quote your topic line and create a thread in the Count's Tavern to ask folks about this, and will take this up with the Mods as well.  Thank you! :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

. . .
Nope, not me.  Perhaps at some point.

I know Tarlen da Foeburna from back in the day plays Oathmark and is a big fan.

Oathmark has made me eager to play Fantasy again! I love the Kingdom and campaign system.
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!
