Mantic goes historical

Post by Richard » Sat Sep 03, 2016 10:55 am

Mantic have just produced an historical version of Kings of War. It appears to include army lists so if you like KoW then this might well tempt you... ;)

I would give it a go but I'm overextended mini wise. Fortunately, unless I'm mistaken its cross compatible with regular KoW, so anyone with an army for this can duke it out with my fantasy army if they so wish until I'm in a position to get a historical army ;)

Are the Historical rules just the KoW Fantasy rules without Magic, or are they very different?

From what I've heard they're pretty much the same and you can easily play Fantasy vs Historic if you want to. Probably why it's called KoW Historical rather than getting a completely different name.

They are KoW - just the rules (which are complete) include things like veteran upgrades for units. The army lists re more of a 'one size fits all' - don't expect WRG style lists from this, but should allow for a reasonable representation of the planned forces.

And you can play KoW Fantasy against Historical forces.
Dragon/Lion Rampant // Warpath // Godslayer // Wolsung .
