Shipping is $12.50 to the US though, unless you spend $50, in which case it is free. So a great deal if you had something you wanted from them anyway and want some extra sprues, maybe not so much to just grab a couple super cheap bits.

So... that £5 sci-fi playmat is Kill Team sized. I suggest getting it before it's gone if you play it.

I spent 56£ yesterday. Mainly on 40 terrorists I wanted anyway. Then 200 romans because they were 10p each. And some random stuff.

Went a little crazy and ordered ~80 miniatures plus some terrain. No idea what I'm going to do with them, but at £0.10-0.25 per mini it seemed like a good idea at the time. Oh well, I've spent more on worse...

$12 is... extremely cheap for overseas shipping between the USA and the EU, actually. Last book I ordered from the USA costed me $35 for shipping. And that was three years ago, and was a single, sofcover, big novel-sized book.

Picked up some Ghar, modern soldiers and Terminators. Would have picked up the Terminator game, but it was sold out.

The brain can sometimes throw up roadblocks when shipping costs more than the products you're buying. Whether or not the shipping cost is justified, it just feels wrong, and a lot of people can't seem to see past that.

Is postage simply that inexpensive in the US that even $12 seems steep? It's not far from what I pay for shipping domestically...

I grabbed one of each of the female survivor sprues. Seemed like cool minis to have if I ever wanted to do zombie apoc gaming Didn't buy any of the modern military sprues though, anyone have any experience with those? I have 10 of the Hasslefree modern military so my thinking was I already have enough of those.

First Class Packages (with tracking), up to 1 pound, cost under 5 bucks to ship anywhere in the USA including to any US Military base in the world. Priority Mail, which includes insurance and tracking, is only slightly more, and the USPS has Flat Rate boxes where, if it fits, it ships, no matter how heavy it is, and will reach any destination in the USA within 1 to 3 days.

I don’t know what you ordered, but I bet the shipping is because you ordered in $$$ and not in £££. I always order from Warlordgames using the great British pounds price as they are just as bad if not worse than GW with the conversion rate. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click on the British flag to change currency to £s.

I ordered 10 sprues at £1each and was charged £5 shipped to St.Louis, MO, USA. £15 total and with my bankcard’s conversion fee is spent $19.13 total. I’ve done this with all my Warlordgames purchases. Conversion rate was 1-1.2753 which means my sprues were $1.28 each instead of $1.50 each and I spent $6.35 on shipping.

Pretty sure it was paper. Didn't I sell you my Terminator box for $1 at the bring and buy? Or did someone else pity-purchase it from me?

I have the basic game, and yeah, it has a paper mat, I just wasn't sure if the larger boxed one Warlord has right now is the same.

And no Bob, I didn't pity purchase your box when I have one in my closet of shame as it is!

$12 is expensive shipping when it nearly doubles the cost of your order. The order I was going to make only came to $18. It didn't feel worth it to me. But, I'm going to piggyback Tamburlaine's order, so that's going to breach the $50 needed for free shipping.

Theophony's plan of using pounds instead of dollars is actually a damn good one though.

How big are those Pike and Shotte horsies? Big enough for GW dudes to ride in comfort, or do they look like they're comically overburdening their mounts?

What stopped me is the realization that, no matter how good a deal it is, it's not a good deal if you never actually use any of it. $50 is a lot for a box full of stuff you never do anything with.

That really depends on what you're ordering, though. If I sold you a Ferrari for $1.50, $12 shipping would be a steal.

This obviously isn't quite on that level, but you're getting $10-$15 sprues for $1.50. So ordering anything more than a single sprue still saves you money over buying at normal price.


The value of the goods has absolutely no impact on what it costs to ship them, unless the shipping includes a value-based insurance charge.

They are properly scaled, so they are way too small for GW figures.

Enjoy your exalt, I never thought of doing this.

Some quick math shows Warlord converting at 1.60

Now, how to get a VAT refund?

If your living in the US and have it shipped here I don’t think VAT gets added.

I use them with Bretonian Damsels and Ungol horse Archers, anything where a smaller horse does not look out of place. For this purpose I think they are great.

They aren’t like GW, but it in £££ and you pay $13 for it with your bank card exchange rate. Shippings cheaper too.

Keep checking back, the Terminator Box game, and the Algoryn have both been sold out and then reappeared later, you may be lucky

Sadly the Terminator playmat has now sold out as I'm impressed with mine which just arrived as it's going to be ideal for small skirmishes

Edit: There was a coupon code valid to 30th September for 10% off my next purchase as a thank you for making my first order (even though it wasn't) so if you've already ordered from them and want to try it it's DESERT_RAIDER (if only it has arrived before I made my second one)

The Algoran command just cost me another pretty penny.

Thanks Flinty !

Mostly to annoy my friends who religiously only use GW models, I plan on starting a new counts as Tau army using the C3 sprues for Tau Fire Warriors and Gun Drones, the Ghar for Tau Stealth Suits, and the Al Sprues for Vespids.

Anyone have suggestions on where I can get 20 pairs of cheap wings that will look good and the Algorin ?

If I didn't alreadybhave a tau army I would have done the same.thing

For vespid wings you could.try getting a paper punch and using it on 0.5mm plasticard. You'll probably wreck the punch quite quickly, but it should be good for 20 pairs.

Something like this

I don't think I would use punched out paper dragonflies or novelty flies, but if I can find some plastic dragonflies at the dollar store, I may be in business.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Someone bought up the Celtic Command Sprues. I hope they noticed that those sprues don't have the heads on them.

I bought the C3 models to also do a Tau-esque force, but I now I am kind of wishing I had of waited and got the Algoryn instead, as they seem a little bit larger and more in line with GW's Tau. Anyone have any size comparison pictures?

20 sprues of C3 should be more than enough though. I'll just have to work with what I have I guess


Warlord games-News and rumors: Warlords of Erehwon pg6 @ 2018/09/23 04:40:48


Post by: BobtheInquisitor


The Algoryns are the right size, but not the right proportions. C3 could work as some sort of diminutive client species for the Tau. At least you got 20 awesome drones.

Sadly, I didn't see the Algoryns, either.


Warlord games-News and rumors: Warlords of Erehwon pg6 @ 2018/09/23 05:07:23


Post by: Fenriswulf


The drones were exactly what sold me on getting the C3. I bought as soon as I saw the sale go up, but it was too early for the Algoryns. The drones are fantastic, and can be easily converted to what I want.

Looking at the miniatures, the C3 aren't as bulky as GW figures, but they look much better proportioned, and I should be able to work something out. Height wise, I think they'll do fine.

I really like that these are plain skeletons (no rags or armour on parts) makes them much quicker to paint in large numbers.
But I always found them really fiddly to put together, the waist joint is a tiny contact point but has to support a lot of the models weight.
Look good once done, and give that Jason and the argonaughts feel with their Greek style weapons.

I am always interested in more skeletons, and have wanted some of these for a while. Being plain means that you can convert them any which way you might like. But also because they come with open right hands, which is fantastic if you want to make conversions.

They are smaller and more spindly than other skeleton miniatures, which is troubling, so I'll have to see how they turn out.

The Shock Troops have cool coats and face masks, but the anatomy and posing are certainly not the best. They are fine for generic scary bad guys in various sci-fi skirmish games though. And yeah I would not pay a lot for them, the ones I got were something like $0.7 per model.

Hopefully. A price increase over Wargames Factory is inevitable, but maybe the skeletons will be a horde unit in that fantasy game and priced accordingly.

Yeah, waiting for the sprues to be discounted in a future sale would be the most economical way to get some skeletons. If you needed/wanted them sooner I’d suggest just ordering off the British site, the conversion rate from your credit card will be better than Warlord’s. Right now a pound is worth $1.28 so 23.5 pounds is $30 which would save you $8 over ordering from the US site.

Yeah, $40 for 24 of those skeletons is too much. And aside from a few metal characters, I'm thinking they aren't going to have miniatures ranges at all for the other factions. This will probably just be a rulebook to use with your existing fantasy miniatures. But they could have picked a better name. At least something pronounceable.


Warlords of Nowhere. Seems like a pretty lazy effort. But I think Warlord is just making too many games.

That’s if you buy in £££ and have your bank do the exchange rate. If you order from the US in $$$ then their website currency exchange prices are the $40.00. Go to the bottom of any of Warlordgames.com webpages and select the American flag and look up the prices in $$$. Find a £24 kit on the £££ page and then look it up on the $$$page. Just like Mantic they have their own idea of how much the currency conversion should be.

I always buy in £££ and let my bank handle the difference, but some companies like GW have their trade practices set where we cannot do that .

Has the pricing been confirmed? Wargames Factory models used to be dirt cheap, but after the tooling's acquisition by Warlord the pricing shot up a fair bit. To the extent that I'm turned off from buying the models now, regardless of how reasonable others new to those lines think the prices are. I'll wait till sales or shows where they sell their sprues for a few pounds each I think (assuming they don't liquidate the line like they did with the modern stuff. ...Which needs some explaining).

Actually, skeleton warriors and orcs are both 18 pounds / $29 for 24 of them. Rulebook is 30 / $45. An army box of 91 plastic and metal figures is 50 / $80.

Given it's billed as a "warband" sized game, that 91 figures should be much more than you'd need. And 24 should be a good start to a force. Rick has said it's for about 5-6 units of about 5 or more models.

I’m sure many readers will know what it means when I
say that fantasy wargames have been around for so many
years now that our monsters, creatures and armies have
acquired an almost historical familiarity. Whether
inspired by literature, films, television or by established
miniature ranges, there can’t be many out there who
don’t have a definite notion of what an Orc is or just how
curmudgeonly a Dwarf can be.
That’s why I have not set out to re-write or re-define such familiar and well-established concepts within these game rules. My aim has been simply to breathe new life into established ideas, so that anyone who wishes to do so can play just as easily by dusting down existing collections as by starting anew. Indeed, dusting down my own collections was the first, and fatal, step of a journey that has resulted in the game you are now reading. That’ll teach me.
I started out with the intention of writing a game that embraced the entire genre of myth, legend and folklore as well as the fantasy of literature, movies, TV and games.
This is not a book that sets out to present just one world or one vision of fantasy. Hence, I have included a selector list for forces inspired by mythical Amazons and Greek Heroes. Other lists take their inspiration from Celtic Legends and Medieval Romance. Most, however, are drawn from what has become a tradition of fantasy as portrayed in role-playing, tabletop, and video games: themselves inspired by sources
too many and varied to mention.
These rules are not specifically tailored for use with any one manufacturer’s offerings. Please feel free to use whatever models you have or such models as you care to purchase. I’ve tried to cover the most popular and widely accepted interpretations of fantasy warriors, monsters and arcane machineries within the rules and warband
selector lists. Inevitably, because it is a game developed amongst friends and fellow players, what might be familiar to us might not be familiar to others; but such are the perils of this gaming life. For those who want to take things further, the rules are designed to be flexible and expandable, and can easily accommodate yet more forces,
new monsters and different interpretations of old ones should you wish.
Readers will notice that this book has been illustrated with photographs of models both venerable and modern, made by different manufacturers, and from a variety of collections. Legal precedent precludes us picturing the models of every manufacturer,
so our photographs don’t necessarily represent a comprehensive selection of what is available – as I’m sure most readers will realise. Fortunately, these days it is very easy indeed to find catalogues of models online, and a quick search will soon reveal the
extent of different manufacturers’ offerings in metal, resin and plastic.
The game is intended to be played on an average sized tabletop using warbands of a few dozen models. Models are moved and fight as loosely organised groups or units of similar types, or as individuals in the cases of larger and more powerful monsters and machines. I think of it as a ‘warband’ style game, larger in scope than a man-to-man
skirmish game, but smaller than a battle game with massed ranks and hundreds of models. This is a size of game that has great appeal and offers considerable scope for scenario building and role-play style adventures, whilst at the same time keeping things manageable in terms of the size of forces and space required. Gameplay is built around the D10 system developed for my science-fiction game Beyond
the Gates of Antares and the order dice mechanic first used in the Bolt Action WW2 rules. This allows for a game with some mechanical depth and considerable adaptability, but remains reasonably well-paced and intuitive once players are familiar with the basics.
As with all games, one has to balance complexity and accessibility, and on the whole I have assumed players are reasonably experienced wargamers seeking a game with some tactical challenge and enough variety to reward repeat play. As always, I would bid the reader to remember that playing wargames is a social affair, whether our opponents are old friends or perhaps fellow players meeting for the first
time. We play for the enjoyment of the thing, for the challenge, and as an opportunity to meet like-minded enthusiasts. In a game of relative sophistication we know that there will be occasions when a situation requires interpretation, or where players are unable to find a rule during play, and when this happens the best thing is to agree on an interpretation and get on with the game. You can always roll a dice to decide how to interpret a rule if you wish. The gods of battle are uncannily arbitrary when it comes to such things. Similarly, if players are happy to ignore, change or add rules then please feel free to do so, and if the game is improved as a result so much the better.

I do sometimes wish Warlord would make their mind up what they want, produce a few games and stick with them - they seem to be firing out new games scatter gun to find a few that stick

Very hard to imagine what these new rules could introduce that give them any traction beyond the initial release. Warlord products seem to get a lot of “noise” but very little has staying power beyond their original core games.

That's the same for like 90% of the tabletop miniature games released anymore. The market is flooded.

Calling it Warlords of Nowhere (nowhere is Erehwon backwards!) is making me suspicious that Rick & Warlord aren't too pushed on this one...

Wargames Factory didn't release any other fantasy sets apart the Orcs and Skeletons, right?

It's been said that Rick wanted to call it something like (if I recall correctly) Beyond the Pillars of Hercules (to tie it in more with Beyond the Gates of Antares). But Warlord Games vetoed that name, perhaps in part becomes it implied a fantasy Greek setting, whereas the game actually doesn't really have a setting of its own, it's for using whatever fantasy miniatures/setting you want. Hence, Warlords of nowhere.

War Banner/Footsore miniatures are supposed to be releasing an Ancient Greek version of Test of Honour next year, I'm guessing that''s another reason Warlord mighn't want a game with a similar Greek sounding name.

Mid level skirmish gaming in an open fantasy background using the bolt action engine? A lot of people are waiting for just that, so there'll be a lot of book sales to people who just want a framework to use for their gaming. Certainly I know of at least five who've declared a sale just on that basis.

Who cares if they don;t follow up with masses of stuff? Its not as if fantasy models are exactly hard to come by.

We're going to play ours collectively and firmly set in the Old World.

I'm going to use mine as an alternative 1480s setting, when Tudor brought diabolical pacts to the field, Richard III survived Bosworth and its all gone to ruin as York and Lancaster have utterly splintered but now have roaming chaotic forces and the emerging dead to contend with as well.

I care if they don’t do follow up stuff. I believe they said five armies to start with(could be wrong), if that’s it that’s not enough variance for covering the armies of the old world. Expansions are necessary to flesh out a universe to fill multiple roles and why new factions are constantly added.

Well thats up to you. I'd just DIY it - and often do. Don't need it from above if you can make it yourself.


PS...........there is 11 lists + monsters in the book. If thats not enough for you, then up to you.

If there are 11 lists that’s better than I thought. Though house ruling to fix stuff always limits who you play against and the possibility of growing a community or having tournaments.

The old tournaments chestnut............. They've nothing to do with me, so aren't a consideration in my gaming nor creative projects. People want them fine, but - again - thats up to them.

Epic Armageddon has been doing pretty well for tournaments despite being run on "house rules" for over a decade now. Same with Blood Bowl before the latest box set came out. If your group has your own army lists, then you've got enough to start - just include your additions as part of the tournament pack - but you'll be better off trying to grow the community first, in that case.

Read the descriptions of the rules that have been posted. This is a set of rules for people to use with their existing fantasy miniatures or any range they want to use. It's not intended to be supported with a game-specific miniature range for all of the factions. I doubt Warlord Games is going to start their own fantasy ranges for these factions, they're just taking advantage of the fact that they already own orc and skeleton kits (and maybe amazons?) from buying out the old Wargames Factory ranges.

This is exactly what we intend to do. We all play Bolt Action, we've all played Antares...........we like the mechanics and have fantasy models kicking about. This puts 1+1 together and gives scope for creative freedom in the background and setting

Yeah, I like it. I'm glad it is based on the Gates of Antares engine, like Hail Caesar and Pike and Shotte are evolved from Black Powder or Konflict 47 from Bolt Action. A family of games with similar mechanics but some differences that allow you to play different eras is a better approach I think than doing sort of "one off" things like Test of Honor or the zombie apocalypse game they did.

Info about the pre-order this friday: http://www.warlordgames.com/warlords-of-erehwon-war-is-coming/

Fairly boring teaser video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u5SDvPc7Lc
Though it does show some of the artwork from the book. Also, it looks like they may have altered the Wargames Factory skeleton sprue, as they show a skeleton with little horns, and one with a helmet. But maybe those are just conversions.

Also, a brief interview with the author, which has some high level info about the background and rules: http://www.warlordgames.com/frontline-report-what-is-erehwon/

Warlord threw a couple of metal minis in with the samurai sprues when they released them. Maybe the special skeletons are metal minis capable of the heavy lifting needed to raise prices drastically on plastic minis.

Yes, it is probably that. The army bundles say they include plastic and metal miniatures, so they probably made a couple metal skeleton unit leaders or something. Though the bodies, just from the quick look in the video, do look very just like the plastic skeletons. Maybe just metal heads? Don't know. And I don't have any of the Wargames Factory orcs, so I'm not familiar enough with them to have spotted any differences.

The game really looks slapped together, that being said I am looking forward to playing some Bolt Action in spa.... I mean Antares with Orcs and Skellies. I just hope 12 Orders dice are enough to get started with.

Pretty sure the helmeted and horned skull came with the standard WGF box . I bought about 5 boxes years ago strictly for conversion fodder.

You can see them in this blog from 3 years ago:

Interesting. I don't think the original release included those heads. But I remember Wargames Factory at one point re-cutting the sprue in order to make them less fragile. Perhaps the new heads were added when they did that. Or maybe I just didn't use any of those heads and am not remembering them.
