CMON Limited Announces A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game
Mar 14, 2017

CMON Limited is proud to announce its exciting new project A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game based on the beloved novels by George R.R. Martin in cooperation with Dark Sword Miniatures, Inc. Heading to Kickstarter in Q3 of 2017 and retail stores in 2018, this new miniatures wargame allows fans to enter the world of the novels and control units of troops and heroes with easy to pick-up rules and fast-paced, brutal gameplay.


CMON Limited Announces A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game

Since the A Song of Ice and Fire series was first published in 1996, fans from around the world have fallen in love with the amazing lands of Westeros and Essos and the iconic characters that inhabit them. CMON’s new tabletop miniatures game brings the conflicts set in those lands and the beloved characters to life with gorgeous, pre-assembled miniatures that make picking up and playing the game a breeze right out of the box. Gameplay is strategic yet easy to learn, meaning players will get to the battles as quickly as possible.


Jim Ludwig, Founder and President of Dark Sword Miniatures, Inc., commented on the partnership leading to the creation of the game: “I have been a big fan of what CMON has done in the tabletop miniatures space since 2004. Their expertise in plastic miniature production and their extensive body of work with both board games and tabletop miniatures games, that not only look amazing but are actually fun to play, made it an easy choice on who to collaborate with on this project.”


CMON’s Founder and President, David Doust, explains, “CMON's relationship with Dark Sword dates back over a decade, and we have contemplated a more serious collaboration for a very long time. This project allows us to dig deep into George R.R. Martin's mind and recreate the iconic battles from his award-winning novels on the tabletop.”


The A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game lets players take control of their favorite Houses from the novels, represented by trays of high-quality, pre-assembled miniatures, and lead them into battle against their opponents. Players can recreate their favorite moments from the series or create their own stories. What if the Red Wedding never happened, and Robb Stark assaulted King’s Landing? Now fans can find out!


Battles can range from large-scale wars with hundreds of miniatures, to simple skirmishes between a few units without complicating the elegantly designed rules. The game features several unique systems, including alternating activations that keep the players engaged; a Rank System that changes a unit’s capabilities as the battle rages on; a Tactics System that provides strategic powers fueled by a finite resource each round; and, most importantly, the iconic Heroes, such as Robb Stark and Jaime Lannister, that can change the course of war both on and off the battlefield.

CMON will have even more information before the launch of the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game: Stark vs Lannister Starter Set on Kickstarter later in 2017, with a healthy lineup of regular retail releases and support to follow

I like that it's based on the books rather than the show and... that's it. 'A Tactics System that provides strategic powers' is phrase that makes me cringe a bit, for a couple of reasons; and 'a healthy lineup of regular retail releases' makes me think it's the same old trick of goading gamers into buying a crapload of overpriced minis ("See, buying this mini gives you the rule that instantly makes the unit fight twice as well. It's dead tactical and fluffy...") who'll then moan about 'dead games' and 'unusable armies' when the releases trickle to a halt.

Will definitely be grabbing this one. I was disappointed when FFG abandoned the Westeros battle game so glad someone else is giving Song of Ice and Fire war gaming a go.

Oh look. They're putting it on Kickstarter......

So given there's only two series to go, one starting in July, what's the betting they might've left it a bit late?

This is based on the novels rather than the TV show so about another 20 years until that's finished.

Add in the fact the minis look to be based on the Dark Sword ones (note the logo on the bottom right) who have been doing ASOIAF minis for donkeys years.

Wow, this is finally happening? Last I knew, it got canned because CMoN asked what happened in the event of a tragedy and GRRM passed on. Good to hear you GoT fans are finally getting it. It's been in pre-agreement stages for at least two years now.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Tactics System - heroes have special, finite Tactic Powers they pass on to their Unit to use each round.

Looks like another company (along with FFG and Runewars) looking to step into the void of mass-ranked fantasy battle left by GW's WFB.

Well certainly there is no bigger franchise in fantasy, other than perhaps LoTR, and certainly nothing that is more popular at the time of writing. And CMoN will have the chops to back this with a big release and a high professional standard. Certainly, some of those renders look pretty nice.

If they can pull in the board game crowd with this (and one-piece sculpts would be one way to do this) could be looking at something challenging Kingdom Death for total $ pledged?

I haven't been overly impressed with anything I've seen Dark Sword put out...and I don't know if I've any real interest in a board game-quality miniatures game. I'll keep an eye on the KS for kicks though.

People are already doing tremendous GoT projects with massive armies...there's no shortage of fake-medieval miniatures out there.

Sculpts there look okay. Not great, but okay. Infinitely more intriguing than Rune Wars, however one is far fantasy and one is light fantasy so there's room for both if they're lucky.

Visually, GOT is fairly meh unless you're a keen historical wargamer with fantasy leanings. Not sure how it wins out over more fantastical wargames with more variety of units.

The pics in the slides look very nice but the detail in the actual minis looks a little soft, especially the firewall. Definitely an intriguing game though.

Cool, and it will do well but never again with CMoN. So many games are late by a long shot, and they just move on to the next never giving updates leaving backs in the dark.

I had the same thought, "Oh Look, a Rune Wars Killer"

Though it just means next year FFG will skin Star Wars over Rune Wars to save it

GoT stepping up to fill the Rank and File wargame is probably the smartest move a company has made to take WHFB's spot. This will get fans of the game interested, at least for a while, and give them a foothold on the table-top.

Hopefully the actual models look a little bit better.
