Glad you guys liked it! What'd you think of the new styling?

Imagine the feeling when you position your tanks, engines idling, landing gear deployed for a low profile, with firing solutions along a key bottleneck. Then some fether lands a dreadnought behind them in a giant heat shielded coke can.

The expanded magic for KOW is interesting.

Terrific issue, and congrats on hitting issue #40!

My only small note to readers, above and beyond the one already printed in Iron-Watch... The fan contributed army additions for KoW seem thoughtful, and a lot of fun (i'd love an actual book of unit/item/spell additions for armies formally), but even at a glance some of those are crazy broken. :-p

Wanderlust Stone for Ogres at 5pts would be the most auto-include item I have ever seen in my Ogre armies. :-p

11527pts Total (7400pts painted)

4980pts Total (4980pts painted)

3730 Total (210pts painted)

We're proud to bring you the first Ironwatch Game: The Star-Struck City!

The Star-Struck City sets players in the sunken ruins of Casa-Omnicidi, a Primavantor city of incredible wealth recently risen from the seabed. Treasure and danger alike await your warbands, as they travel through the waterlogged city in search of the shards of the meteor that struck down the once-mighty port city and drove it beneath the waves.

Star-Struck City is a skirmish game, designed around playing with small warbands of 5-15 models on a 4' x 4' table loaded with terrain. Warband members advance, gaining new skills, equipment, and injuries as they survive the rigors of battle in this deadly locale. Climb up buildings and run between rooftops, leap down to ambush enemies from above, hire war machines and epic heroes from the Kings of War armies, and build your warband's reputation as the fiercest and toughest fighters in all of Mantica.

The rules are based heavily on Kings of War, so players of the full-size wargame should feel right at home. It's heavily inspired by other skirmish games such as Mordheim, but with the ease-of-play the Kings of War rules provide so gameplay is quick and decisive.

What we're posting now is the basic rules; Behind the scenes, we're working on a "deluxe"/full version complete with stories from Ironwatch issues, pictures, and art such as the custom piece we teased earlier from artist Boris Samec. The deluxe version will also be available for free, and we'll be putting up the deluxe version for printing off of Lulu at-cost if you would like a hard copy as well.

As the surviving veterans of The Star-Struck City have said: Casa-Omicidi now only offers riches or death. What will you find?

Man, now I have to get my Skaven skirmish force painted that I was working on for a different Skirmish ruleset.

I really like the KoW rules, but hadn't worked myself up to getting a full army yet, as it really ,eans I have to have two, so anyone I can wrangle into playing with me can have one (like my wife).

But for the effort of one army, that's like 4-5 warbands.

Kind of a huge bummer for Ogres, though. I wanted to go the GW Stormcast-as Ogres route like in KoW, but Ogres are so expensive that any normal starting warband (50gp) will be one guy by himself!

Thanks - been looking for a nice skirmish ruleset and we gave this a run through today. Is there any place we can ask our rule questions as they come up?

I'd advise if one or more players are starting with Ogres, to bump the starting gp up to 150; Alternately, allow the Ogre player to start with a higher gp, since other players should be able to catch up (slowly) over the course of several games through Underdog experience.

Glad you like it! You can either ask them here, or on the Mantic forum thread, and I'll reply as soon as I can.

Awesome, thanks! The Mantic Forums are kinda finicky with their filter, so your post might not show up for a day or so...

ETA: Saw your post, but apparently the Mantic filter thought it might be spam, so it has to be approved first. Hopefully should be approved shortly.

I was running a bit short on time, but they will definitely be in next issue.

Also, my apologies for splitting them up between two issues; I hadn't seen your intro and additional 4 lists when I put together Issue 46 until it was too late. Please let me know if you had any other Might of Old supplements you had coming that you'd like me to publish together, as I don't want to miss them!

We’re excited to bring you the deluxe edition of The Star-Struck City. Featuring fantastic artwork from Boris Samec, custom miniatures and terrain images throughout the work, and rule tweaks to help further improve your campaign experiences, and much more. We’ve also worked to make sure the at-cost print edition from Lulu is as polished as possible, so if you’re looking for a hard copy for your gaming table we’ve got you covered!

The Star-Struck City sets players in the sunken ruins of Perditus, formerly known as Casa-Omnicidi. Once, it was a Primavantor city of incredible wealth recently risen from the seabed. Treasure and danger alike await your warbands, as they travel through the waterlogged city in search of the shards of the meteor that struck down the once-mighty port city and drove it beneath the waves.

Star-Struck City is a skirmish game, designed around playing with small warbands of 5-15 models on a 4′ x 4′ table loaded with terrain.
