The Wars of Orcs and Dwarves (WOOD) mass fantasy battle game system is similar to the Wars of Ozz – except that now you can now dust off those fantasy minis you have from ANY manufacturer and have a great tabletop game.
The rules were written by my good friend Buck Surdu with a good amount of help from another great friend and West Point roommate Dave Wood. I have played in a few of the playtests as well as at RECON in Florida in April (described, among other things, here).
I had a blast – and I think most of you would as well.
The gaming possibilities are endless!
Here are a few pics from that game in Florida – it was a halfling raid on an Orc village – but any scenario is conceivable.
There is a Kickstarter from the publisher, Sally 4th that you can access here.
Here is a description of the game:
Written by John T ‘Buck’ Surdu and the team who brought you ‘Wars of Ozz’
Manufacturer / Range / Scale Neutral – Use what ever fantasy miniatures you have collected to fight epic massed battles.
Wars of Orcs and Dwarves will work with any scale of miniatures from 6mm – 32mm and beyond, from any manufacturer and from any genre. If you have an existing Warhammer or Lord of the Rings Army or maybe some historical Ancients, Dark Age or Medieval figures, you can use those to play Wars of Orcs and Dwarves.
Wars of Orcs and Dwarves is:
- Mass fantasy tabletop gaming
- Designed for solo, 2 player & team play
- Features a balanced Magic System
- Rulebook contains, army lists, scenarios and campaigns
- Fun to play, streamlined, intuitive & based around reactive game play that keeps both sides continually involved
- Game length 2-3 hours
Just to be clear, I have no financial interest in this – and I have backed the Kickstarter so that I can get the rules book and a PDF. I plan on working this into my gaming collection as I have a lot of fantasy stuff that needs a good game.
Again, there is a Kickstarter from the publisher, Sally 4th that you can access here.
Thanks for looking and checking out the Kickstarter!
