Osprey War Games for Every Genre

Of Gods and MortalsOf Gods and Mortals is a set of skirmish rules for mythological miniature battles. Players each control 10-20 mortals, 1-3 legends (monsters, heroes, or priests), and 1 god. Gods are powerful but will disappear when the faith of their troops is reduced to zero. Gods are also best used in combat against each other. However, on certain results of the dice, the power of a god explodes, hitting all mortals within range. Legends have the ability to swear an oath or make a boast. If the objective of the oath or boast is met, that legend’s army receives a morale boost.

Among Osprey Publishing’s other recent miniature war game releases are:

Looking forward to 2015, Osprey has planned:

  • Bolt Action: World War I (September)

Just 6 months after announcing expansion of its nascent miniature war game efforts, Osprey Publishing has revealed plans to develop a board and card game business. Osprey’s accessible military history books have been popular with gamers for a long time and are sold in many specialty game shops, so expansion in this field is not so much of a stretch.

To support the board and card game endeavor, Osprey is recruiting for a game developer to work out of the company’s Oxford office.
