Sláine is a Celtic fantasy adventure comic from Judge Dredd and the 2000 AD publisher Rebellion.
Warlord Games, the makers of miniature games like Antares, World War 2, Pike & Shotte and Black Powder, have today announced the Sláine Miniatures Game.
The Sláine Miniatures Game, penned by Andy Chambers, Roger Gerrish & Gav Thorpe, is the third of Warlord Games’ 2000 AD offerings. Unlike the sci-fi-infused ranged-combat that dominates Strontium Dog and Judge Dredd, Sláine is set in a fantasy world (created and immortalized by the legendary comic creators Pat Mills and Angela Kincaid) and thus is more concerned with the clash of sword & axe and opposing magics. Though aficionados of the previous two games will find a lot of familiarity in the broad mechanics of Sláine, there are a number of key differences that firmly cement it as its own beast.
Sláine will be a high tempo skirmish game in which small groups of warriors tussle in pre-history battlefields to determine our fate.
Players will recruit legendary heroes, such as Sláine, into their Warband.
