Next expansion. “Oathbreakers” has the undead and is set for late Nov. (according to Amazon). Battlesworn is apparently focused on heroes you can level up and a new campaign.

Thank you. Don’t know why I thought they were the same product.

Video about the Battlesworn. Many great things in the book but it is very dissapointing seeing how many pictures from the core rulebook were reused. I know that it is a way to cut the costs but I would rather have only the few new ones rather than this.

They said the magic word for me when it comes to ogres- "plastic."

Dunno if anyone will ever match GW for how much variance and compatibility those big lugs had across all their kits but I'm happy to see someone try!

I.e. these (not sure which of the two specifically the message referred to):




Well, that would be marvellous. Many of the Oathmark plastics I thought were largely nice yet just not quite up there, but if those plastic ogres match the above well, that could be an amazing set. And if not, I'll at least get that one on the right at some point anyway, terrific sculpt that.

The one on the right style would be sweet, but anyway Ogres in plastic is a fantastic news!

I don't know if it was posted here already, but there is also third expansion coming up 24 jun 2021: Bane of Kings

"Time is the bane of all kings. Always does it march forward, bringing change and challenges, wars and disasters, invaders and internal rebellion. This supplement for Oathmark: Battles of the Lost Age, focuses on the passage of time and its effect on a players kingdom. While wars and battle still determine their ultimate fate, many other events can affect the armies of a kingdom. Plagues and blights can reduce access to soldiers from specific territories. Attempted coups can cost a king some of his best generals. On the other hand, unexpected alliances might give a kingdom access to unusual troops, or the birth of a new heir might bring wondrous presents.

Along with the rules for the passing of years, this book also presents the option to train your units to fight in special formations, such as phalanxes, shield walls, and skirmish lines. These will allow players to use their existing armies to try out new strategies and tactics to swing their battle in their favour. This book also includes several new military expeditions, including numerous scenarios, to once again challenge a player's generalship."

I wonder when will we see the sculpts for the undead? The other minis were released before there was even a rulebook available so hopefully they will show something before the november, when the Oathbreakers supplement is supposed to be ready.

Johanxp Yeah... It's a loong wait
ShadowWalker From North Star facebook page:

"I've shown off the two new Osprey books, Frostgrave: The Red King and Oathmark: Oathbreakers today. The great news is we'll be releasing plastic box sets with each one. With Frostgrave we'll be releasing The Demon Army, and with Oathmark Skeleton Warriors. I think you'll love both of them. Pictures to follow very soon."

And they stated that skeletons will look like the ones from Oathbreakers cover: "Actually, the cover of the book is what the Skeletons look like."

Big thanks for the info! Amazing news to hear for any skellies fans, I am so happy!

Love Oathmark's plastic kits. Hope this new one have the same quality.

I have to admit I wasn’t the biggest fan of their chosen scale or style...but after getting ahold of some of the Oathmark dwarfs, I am sold on Oathmark as a range. I’ll be getting some of those demons, and maybe some of the elves I had previously derided. I found the kits to be that enjoyable to assemble.

I still gotta get the light infantry for the elves- those are the cooler ones with the hooded cloaks.

I'm going to want to see how the skeletons compare to Mantic's and Wargames Atlantic. These could end up being the most bang for the buck considering how well stocked with parts the Oathmark kits have been.

I too need to get these elf light infantry kit. I think it is the best one from the Oathmark range so far. Also these elves could easly pass for a human rangers/guard, making them usable in many games. As to skellies, I never liked the look of the Mantic ones, and the WA ones have weird proportions, and they are ancient times rather than dark ages/medieval I would have prefer. Oathmark kit would be very usable for bigger games as well as ones like Frostgrave, Sellswords and Spellslingers etc., having the options for bows, spears and hand weapons combined with shields, and the champion upgrade.

According to Northstar's Facebook comment we'll probably see a picture of new undead next week.

I like what I see so far. Simple armor and weapons on a pile of bones.

Nothing outlandish or tied to specific armies or eras. Considering how much Oathmark boxes are crammed with, these guys are going to be a nice deal!

I hope they have some heads that can pass for General Kael-style helms.

There's quite a lot of bronze (and some iron) age Celts about them, but I don't see that as a bad thing. Gives them a nice "ancient times" vibe without standing out as much as a Corinthian hoplite helmet would have done. Good stuff. Very nice poses for the archers too. From the art, I wasn't sure about the pectoral plates (can't stand them on the armoured Elves), but for these they do help break up the continuous bones a bit.

With those flat boney feet, they're going to be a real pain removing from those integral bases.

I do not like the helmets from the first photo but the horns will be easy to remove. Other than that I love them. Also, chariots!!!
