Relive the tales of fantastic battles as sung by rival bards, each trying to outdo the other through grand embellishments. Perhaps a fog bank conveniently rolls in, concealing your sneaking rogue; perhaps a great storm douses the bow strings of an elven archer and her companions, stopping their plan to rain arrows from above in its tracks. And who could forget the song of the common soldier heroically stepping up to lead an army after their commander was consumed by a wall of flame? Is it true? Does it matter? History is written by the victors, after all.
Through these narrative elements, you create endless scenarios. No battle will ever be the same.
Anthems of War was prototyped using 15mm and 28mm scale miniatures on one inch bases from a variety of ranges. These two scales are the most common scales of miniatures for tabletop play with 28mm being the most common. Other scales of miniatures and shapes of bases can be used with little to no modification to the rules. It is recommended that both you and your opponent use the same scale of miniatures and type of bases to keep play simple and fair.
