UK Games Expo Awards 2019 Shortlist

In Osprey Games

We're delighted to see that four of our games have been shortlisted for the UK Games Expo 2019 Awards. Here's a little more information about each of the contenders.

Best Miniature Range Nominee - Wildlands: The Adventuring Party

 

This faction pack for Martin Wallace's critically acclaimed Wildlands brings four new adventurers to the battlefield - the Barbarian, the Cleric, the Sorceress, and the Rogue. They can be used to replace one of the existing player factions or used as an 'Encounter', stalking around the board, attacking players, and stealing crystal shards.

For more details about The Adventuring Party, check out this review from Tom Vasel at The Dice Tower.

 

Best Miniature Range Nominee - Frostgrave: Wizards Plastic Boxed Set

 

The latest addition to the ever-growing range of Frostgrave miniatures, the Wizards boxed set offers players a huge level of customization when it comes to creating their wizard and apprentice. The wizard sprue offers four bodies and a vast array of arms, heads, and accessories, with each box containing two of these sprues. For even more options, we made sure they are compatable with the Frostgrave Soldiers, Barbarians, Cultists, and Crewmen boxed sets, giving you thousands of possible combinations.

Best Miniature Rules Nominee - Ragnarok: Heavy Metal Combat in the Viking Age

 

Ragnarok is a campaign-driven skirmish game in which players form a Viking war clan seeking to prove itself worthy of becoming the new pantheon. As the war clans develop, they may gain glorious new powers that will bring them closer to godhood, or win the respect of the denizens of the realms, allowing them to bring dire wolves, dwarves, and even the dreaded giants into their war clans. With strategic gameplay and epic storytelling, players must write their own sagas and tell of how their war clans have, through blood and steel, clawed their way up from ruin to stand before the halls of Valhalla.

Best Miniature Rules - Rebels and Patriots: Wargaming Rules for North America: Colonies to Civil War

From the first shots at Jumonville Glen to the surrender at Appomattox, Rebels and Patriots allows you to campaign with Wolfe or Montcalm, stand with Tarleton at Cowpens or Washington at Yorktown, or don the blue or grey to fight for Grant or Lee. From the French and Indian War, through the War of Independence and the War of 1812, to the Alamo and the American Civil War, these rules focus on the skirmishes, raids, and small engagements from this era of black powder and bayonet.

Want to read more about Rebels and Patriots? There are plenty of blogs available from one of the authors to help you better understand the game.
