Chariot Supremacy! Campaign Theme for Cold Wars (March 2018)

Postby David Kuijt » Tue Jul 25, 2017 10:05 pm

Note that this is an announcement for Cold Wars (in March 2018), not for Fall In (November upcoming).

The Campaign Theme for Cold Wars will be:

Chariot Supremacy!

Army lists include:
  • New Kingdom Egyptian
  • Hittite Empire
  • Middle Assyrian
  • Mitanni
  • Minoan and Early Mycenaean
  • Biblical Syrian
  • Biblical Canaanite
  • Nine-Bows Libyan
and many more!
Most armies that existed 1400-1270 BC in the Cradle of Civilization or Eastern Mediterranean are included.

The glorious time when horses were used as the (various) Gods intended, as the grass-chewing engines of those mighty weapons of destruction, Chariots!

More details to come. We are announcing this theme way in advance so players will have sufficient time to paint their armies before the event.

Glad I started my Sumerians and Akkadians if they qualify.

Ooops. Too early. Have to think about this one.

Way too early for signups on this one, although our usual guiding principle is "if you paint an army for a campaign theme and let us know in advance, we will move heaven and earth to make sure you get to play it."

Here are the very rough draft armies for the Campaign Theme:
  • Early Nine Bows Libyan
  • Syro-Canaanite or Ugaritic (multiple armies)
  • Mitanni
  • Middle Assyrian
  • Kassite and Later Babylonian (this is the Kassite Kingdom of Babylon)
  • Amurru and Early Aramaean
  • Midianites and Early Arab
  • Middle Elam (Kingdom of Elam)
  • Early New Kingdom Egyptian (multiple armies)
  • Viceroys of Kush
  • Minoan and Early Mycenaean (multiple armies)
  • Hittite Empire (multiple armies)
  • Various Wild Tribes (might be in or might not, depending on interest; we'd certainly like at least a couple of these guys):
    • Gasgans
    • Zagros or Anatolian Highlanders
    • Kassites, Hurrians, or Nairi
    • Urnfield Culture North Europe

The Urnfield Culture North Europe is not actually on-map at this point (it is starting to develop in Poland), but we have no real evidence as to the tribes directly outside the Mycenaean Greek and Hittite spheres in what is now Thrace, and the pre-Urnfield "Early Bronze Age North Europe" army list does not seem appropriate to what evidence we do have. So the Urnfield list here represents the Phrygians, Lycians, proto-Illyrians, proto-Thracians, and whatever Greek tribes were still outside the Mycenaean palace culture military system.

The Khurasan Minis ones? I just published the list (came out while you were writing your note, it seems) and Gasgans are in it.

Those figs have women dancing with poisonous vipers. Awesome!

They be the ones. Their bodyguard pack should be available soon too. Very excited!

It is just one "witch" part of the command chariot pack. Way cool though.
