Para Bellum Wargames Invites You to Conquest with its Second Wave of Start Playing Boxes

Para Bellum Wargames, the developer and publisher of the fantasy Regimental Miniature Wargame Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings and Skirmish system Conquest: First Blood, has launched a second wave of their successful “Start Playing”, one for each of the four starting factions of the game. Each box contains a solid start of around 600 points of minis for the faction, 1 DaVinci Artist Brushes Paint Brush (Size 0), 6 Warcolours Paints tailored for each faction and 12 Oakie Doakie Dice.

The two waves contain different units for each faction as well as different paints and differently colored dice, remaining an attractive choice for new and veteran Conquest players alike. With the release of the free ruleset of the Skirmish game Conquest: First Blood, the second wave “Start Playing” boxes become an excellent choice to enter not one, but two games with a single purchase; or to expand on one’s existing army.

The Wave Two “Start Playing” Boxes contain:

  • Around 600 points worth of minis for the box’s faction.
  • 12 Oakie Doakie Dice, differently colored for each faction
  • 6 Warcolours Paints, tailored for each faction

Warlord Games’ Victory at Sea Gets New Pre-Orders Including the USS Yorktown, Akagi, and More

Bolster your Pacific fleets with new Carriers for both the US Navy Fleet and Imperial Japanese Navy in your Victory at Sea games. Both the USS Yorktown and Akagi played key roles in their flees prior to the battle of Midway.

USS Yorktown

USS Yorktown was commissioned in 1937, and named for the battle of 1781. After Pearl Harbor, USS Yorktown transferred to the Pacific and took part in some of the first American offences of the war around the Gilbert and Marshall Islands. Despite damage sustained at the Battle of the Coral Sea, she played a key role in the Battle of Midway, with her aircraft being instrumental into the sinking of two Japanese Carriers.

She was, however, damaged in turn by Japanese aircraft, and any hopes of recovering the ship was dashed by a Japanese submarine, whose torpedoes struck the limping vessel shortly after the battle.

Pre-order – $30

USS Yorktown
Akagi

Originally laid down as an Amagi-class battlecruiser, the stipulations of the Washington Treaty resulted in her conversion to an aircraft carrier. As a result, Akagi (赤城, “Red Castle”) was one of Japan’s first large aircraft carriers.

At the Battle of Midway, her aircraft bombarded the American held-atoll but she was subjected to the attacks of dive-bombers bound from USS Enterprise. The loss of four Japanese carriers at this engagement, including Akagi, was a key defeat for Japan, decisively shifting the balance of power in the Pacific theatre.

Pre-order – $30

Akagi

There’s also new individual vessels. Previously only available as part of their respective Navy Fleet starter boxes, you can now pre-order these individual vessels as well as Destroyers in packs of three.
