The Old Dominion is Coming to Conquest
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!
