WARHAMMER FANTASY BATTLES
TRIUMPH AND TREACHERY
Hosted by Roger Cowley
Warhammer Fantasy Battles, (Triumph and Treachery expansion) is a multiplayer tabletop miniatures game making use of Games Workshop’s miniatures and rules sets in a fantasy setting.
This is a great opportunity to try out Warhammer Fantasy miniature gaming for those who have been hesitant to get involved and those who have played before! Roger will be on hand to guide you through the game every step of the way.
All miniatures and terrain will be provided. All you need to do is sign up and play!
The game is a tabletop wargame where two or more players compete against each other with “armies” of 25 mm – 250 mm tall heroic miniatures. The rules of the game have been published in a series of books, which describe how to move miniatures around the game surface and simulate combat in a “balanced and fair” manner.
Warhammer Fantasy Battles is designed for regiments of fantasy miniatures. It uses stock fantasy races such as humans (The Empire, Bretonnia, Kislev), Elves (Dark Elves, High Elves, Wood Elves), Dwarfs, Undead, Orcs and Goblins, as well as some more unusual types such as Lizardmen, Skaven and the daemonic forces of Chaos. Each race has its own unique strengths and flaws; Wood Elves, for example, have the most powerful archers in the game but have poor overall defence and Bretonnia have the strongest cavalry but weak infantry. Similary, the High Elves are very powerful in close combat, but have weak armour, and cannot be fielded in very large numbers.
