It's a shame everyone's having such a problem bringing Confrontation back to life, Aarklash is a cool place for fantasy gaming.


I got the gargoyles in the ram army box *(the one with the almighty crane commanding) yeah I love the RPG as well.

Regarding bringing Confrontation back - I am surprised the Hybrid game isn't brought up more. It was a miniature and tile based dungeon crawl before those really took off, and all the miniatures for it are compatible with any of the larger games. It doesn't require a large amount of miniatures, is a good platform for expansion, and with a good edit of the rules is a solid game. It's a good entry point to the miniature game, as getting a good variety of miniatures for it would also get you about enough to play Confrontation with as well.

I agree that the only curse Confrontation has is poor management. Unfortunately, it is what killed the game originally and has stifled attempts with it since then. Moving to PPP may have been a good choice for other brands, but the Confrontation brand was defined by high quality miniatures that painters drifted towards. People used them as RPG pieces and proxies for other games because you could buy single blisters for a reasonable price and get a detailed and character filled mini. Moving to PPP because of Heroclix's popularity missed the point that they were different markets.

I loved the prepainted minis. Though part of that was getting them at like $4 a box at miniature market. I still use them in rpgs, especially the wulfen models.

It was gargoyles in the army box, wamphyr were released in a unit box on their own.

The plastic minis are not that bad, especialy with the heavy discount they got after Rackham went down (but some have really minimal paint job, like the wolfen army box models).
I think what really killed the game was moving from a scirmish game to a mass battle game, it wasn't aimed at the existing player base.

Whoops, I was wrong, I guess. Ram and Lions were not armies I was able to grab before the game was cancelled, but my best bud has them.

The move to wargame was certainly a risk, but not as bad as the abysmal mismanagement, which seems to have happened again.
