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, revealed their latest faction’s new release: the much anticipated Raptor Riders!
As a byproduct of the diverse genetic material, the Spires used to produce the W’adrhŭn, a portion of their population has developed an almost supernatural empathy with beasts. A curious twist to this legacy seems to be that the females bond with predators while males bond with herbivores. Mounted on fierce raptors these agile warrior units can range across the entire battlefield bringing their savagery to play where most needed.
The statistics and rules of the unit can already be found on the free online Army Builder provided by Para Bellum, with integrated army building rules for both games of Conquest. The Raptor Riders will be coming to your friendly local gaming store the first week of June, bringing the “Dinos” in Dino-riding orcs!
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, revealed their latest faction’s new character. The Matriarch Queen of the W’adrhŭn is joining the fray, in all her majestic glory!
The young W’adrhŭn race naturally prizes life giving females in their society – but they do not limit them to any one role. Those females who eschew these roles and chose, rather, to follow the example of their living goddess, become peerless warriors and leaders. They have earned every ounce of respect from their warriors and every iota of fear from their enemies through sheer talent and application. This is reflected on the tabletop, with the Matriarch Queen Character inspiring her allies, even to the point they fight to their last breath, while helping reinforcements arrive on their field faster and more efficiently.
Releasing to fans the first week of June, the Matriarch Queen will be a prized Character for all W’adrhŭn commanders, while her model will steal the hearts of all who gaze upon it… quite literally as she brutally holds an opponent’s heart in her palm.
Para Bellum Wargames has released over 40 new items so far in 2021 for Conquest, steadily growing the game and its world.
Para Bellum Wargames, the maker of the Conquest tabletop miniatures game is excited to build collaborations within the industry. The goal is to develop new opportunities for gaming fans to experience the miniature gaming hobby in new ways. Their newest collaboration involves Warcolours paints, and Miniatures Wargames magazine. Coming May 6th is “painting night with Dimo!”. This online event will bring Dimosthenis, Conquest’s house artist, into people’s homes via the magic of the interwebs. The 2-hour painting experience will take fans through a range of techniques Dimo uses to paint miniatures. This will be amazing for beginners who want to paint more, and for long-time gamers looking for new ideas!
Miniatures Wargames magazine will host the event on their interactive platform. Warcolours paints and Conquest created a new project- Rage X Fire. This new collab brings together an entire infantry set of Flame Berserkers and 5 full-sized bottles of Warcolours paints. It’s an incredible value of product brought together in one box!
Dimo will walk through this part of this set during the evening so that everyone has a common project to share! A FREE ticket to the event is included with each purchase of the Rage X Fire box for €$49- a bonus value of £10! Link here to purchase a set today. Each purchase during the month of April qualifies for one online admission ticket.
FLGS stores are welcome to participate by hosting a group painting night in conjunction or by selling sets to their community! Retailers ordering 10 or more sets of our Rage X Fire boxes will get 1 bonus demo set for free.
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, revealed the decision the Conquest Community reached on its “Project 6” event through the Living World platform. The event had five rounds of voting, based on constantly released information about three candidate factions:the Weavers – a twisted variation of the fantasy archetype of wood-elves; the City States – a fantasy technomantic faction inspired by Ancient Greece; and the Old Dominion – Conquest’s take on the undead archetype. With a dominant lead, the Old Dominion was the decisive winner of the vote.
The winner, the Old Dominion, is Conquest’s take on the undead-archetype, with Byzantine and Roman influences in their design. Spawned by the amalgamation of Hazlia, humanity’s fallen god of old, with the Horseman Death, the undead of the Old Dominion are neither infinite in number nor mindless creations. Fueled by the Will of Hazlia, his faithful revel in their un-life, plotting to convert their living descendants to the one, true faith of their Un-God. Reflecting the lore in the game, the Old Dominion is expected to be an elite-type army on the table, with individuals gaining strength as the army’s numbers diminish and Hazlia’s Will is more and more concentrated and focused.
Coming in Q1 2022, the Old Dominion will be the sixth faction of Conquest, following the dinosaur-riding W’adrhŭn (the fifth faction) shipping next month!
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, revealed the first release in their “Artisan” series. The series made its debut with the “dual-kit”: the kit offers an alternate to the existing miniature of the Dweghom Raegh Character and the Dweghom Exemplar Command Upgrade model as an alternate assembly option.
The Artisan series debut brings a massive change to the original miniature of the Dweghom Raegh Character, who now comes equipped with huge pauldrons, reflecting the Raegh’s amassed “Aghm”, his worth in Dweghom society. As a candidate for the same role in the future, the Exemplar alternate assembly option offers a single such pauldron and alternate weaponry, reflecting the promise the Exemplar holds for the Dweghom Hold.
The Artisan Series Raegh/Exemplar dual kit offers:
An entirely different miniature to the existing for the Dweghom Raegh.
A Dweghom Exemplar Command Upgrade miniature as an alternate assembly option.
Imperial Remnants or Nobility? Fearless monster hunters or a bow that can outrange even Marskman Clones? OR see the Hunter Cadre down your enemy’s Monsters, while the Longbowmen wreak havoc on the regiments behind it!
You’ll see be able to add The Hunter Cadre/Longbowmen to your Hundred Kingdoms forces soon for your games on Conquest by Para Bellum Wargames.
Para Bellum Wargames, the developer and publisher of the fantasy Regimental Miniature Wargame “Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings” and the Skirmish system “Conquest: First Blood”, has launched brand new starter sets, designed to give a “taste” of the different factions and their skirmish game. Named “Faction Taster Starter Sets”, these boxes bring everything a player needs to start their Skirmish battles!
The Faction Taster Starter sets are designed as a starting force for the Skirmish “First Blood”, offering a character and a small, flexible force of eight infantry units.

The rules of both games are available online for free but a softcover printed First Blood rulebook is waiting in every Taster box! The Faction Starter Taster Sets contain everything you need to start playing First Blood including:
A softback First Blood Rulebook
4+4 infantry models
Their Command Cards
9 Infantry Bases
…and, of course, stands to also bring that small boost in your Mass Battle regiments! All at an MSRP of $€49!
