Onslaught is a competitive skirmish game using the WizKids miniatures range where you take control of a faction from the Forgotten Realms. The core set for Onslaught contains everything for two players to get involved featuring the factions of the Harpers and the Zhentarim.

During gameplay, parties of adventurers will delve into dungeons and battle each other for the prizes that lie within. You'll also have to confront a mix of different monsters that have taken up residence in said dungeons.

I am liking the feel of the game from this very early preview. I like that you take control of iconic groups from the Forgotten Realms and have to come up against each other in a race for the treasure. The added element of the dungeon monsters should throw some nice spanners in the works!

Whilst I like some of the characters from the Zhentarim warband, I am full-on team Harpers. I love that Goblin taking aim with his bow. I do like that Dragonborn who is summoning up magical power within the Zhentarim force though. I have choices to make!

As well as providing a way for you to scrap with another friend, the campaign will also see you delving deep into a ruined keep to confront a mighty Black Dragon. Additionally, the team at WizKids are also working on free scenarios, tournament resources and plenty of expansion packs.

It will be fun to see how this one plays!
