Miniatures Go Artisan with Para Bellum Wargame’s New Conquest Line

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.

Experience Conquest with “First Blood” Taster Sets

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. That way, they also provide a good taste of a “Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings” army, the fast-paced Mass Battles game, becoming an entry product to not one but two games. 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
  • 1 Character
  • 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!

Para Bellum Wargames Teams with Turbo Dork for a Special Release

Inferno X Turboshift

Para Bellum Wargames, the developer and publisher of the fantasy Mass Battles Miniature Wargame Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings and the Skirmish system Conquest: First Blood, revealed a collaborative release with Metallic Paints specialist, Turbo Dork, coming in stores in February 2021. Called “Inferno X Turboshift”, the box contains an Inferno Automata model with 5 Turbo Dork colors.

In the unit’s lore, the steel and stone bodies of the Inferno Automata encase a raging furnace that burns the smoldering remains of a primordial beast. This demonic spirit is bound to the towering metal frame, infusing the Automaton with a cruel intellect and unfettered aggression. Steel and stone warp and buckle under the baleful influence of this infernal passenger, granting the Inferno Automata their demonic visages and cruel claws. The living, shifting hues of the Turbo Dork paints are ideal to display this concept, bringing to life this infernal model on the table.

Coming in February 2021 with an SRP of €$49, the “Inferno X Turboshift” box contains:

  • 1 x Inferno Automata plastic model
  • 5 selected Turbo Dork colors to best paint the model, namely:
    • Silver Fox
    • Shell Shocked
    • Cartridge Family
    • Ground Is Lava
    • Forrest Flux
