Conquest – the Last Argument of Kings is an upcoming game that will soon to be released (I don't yet have a target date) and is certain to be a big hit. Reviews from Adepticon and other conventions have loved the game and I am definitely loving the art and the miniatures Ive seen.
The game itself has veteran game designer Alessio Cavatore at its core. Parabellum is out of Greece, and we are fortunate enough that they sent us a miniature sprue to look at along with an introduction to the Lore and background.
We were sent a sprue for a single Marksman Clone, and I have to say I was pretty excited about putting it together. 12 of these come to a box, and I will be watching closely to see just what a full box set looks like.
Lets take a look at what we were sent.
First off... the miniature is plastic and was great fun to put together. I really like the aesthetic of the game, and I was excited to see this miniature assembled. I was going to be waiting until Monday/Tuesday for this, but I was a little over zealous and wanted to see how this miniature would turn out.
I was a little concerned about how thin some parts of this miniature are, but the plastic is not brittle or fragile at all. Putting it together was a breeze, even without instructions or pics of existing models to give me some insight. I just took a close look at the artwork before I began. I always like it when the glue actually makes a fast and easy bond.
The details on the miniature are excellent, and while building it the layers of bits that go onto the model really give it a great depth. You can see from the Guardsman below that Marksman is a rather tall miniature, and I would of like it if they would of sent a Men at Arms miniature comparison as well.
Overall though this is a great start to the miniature line. I hope that we will be seeing more. The sculpts for the Spires Faction look amazing. While I have not yet delved into the rules of the game, these miniatures are something I will most likely be looking at in the future once they get released.
