We take a look at the Fabled Realms tables for this weekend that are being played on.

Each of them has an awesome narrative to them and they tell a story which reflects the different areas of the Fabled Realms.

Warband Building Gets Underway

38 Comments

We get underway with some building as the Beta Testers open up their awesome bundle and get to grips with working on their models for the first time.

All four of the different Fabled Realms factions have been catered for, even before we look towards some kitbashing in the future. With that in mind, we'll be catching up with members of the Beta Testing crew later this evening too...

Fabled Realms Beta Weekend: Building Characters

51 Comments

We get a chat about the way in which you actually build characters for Fabled Realms. This takes you through an interesting process where you build up your heroes that will lead the way in the fights to come.

I wonder how many of them are going to die, or be turned into Druggoi throughout the event?

We wandered around the studio where folks are still building their warbands for Fabled Realms and some people have already got to the point where they can start priming their miniatures.

I’ve been looking forward to seeing how the games play over those lovely tables you have created and will definitely have to get hold of some of those 4ground buildings to get a table layout ready for when my Eightfold path faction arrives.

For those lucky to be there have a great time playing with those mini’s early 🙂
