Flags Of War has hit up Kickstarter with their new miniature wargame, Border Wars: Under A Reiver Moon! Delve into some 16th Century skirmishes with a new set of rules AND some miniatures to go alongside them.

Games of Border Wars are played out between skirmish Border Clans. This period of the 1500s has been romanticised and so you'll be diving in and playing as these Border Reivers who are going to be trying to make a name for themselves in England or Scotland whilst stealing livestock, burning farmsteads and more.

When you dive into the game, you will build a Reiver Family. You start with a Heidman and then introduce additional heroes and soldiers like Houndsmen and Herdsmen. Gameplay is based around d4, d6, d8 and d10 and each character comes with their own profile card. As well as the standard ways to kick ass and take names, various characters will also come with special abilities.

The rulebook also contains a bunch of different scenarios where you will carry out raids. You will clash with opposing Reivers and then dive into games where you steal and kill livestock whilst also harassing the poor civilians who find themselves caught in the middle.

Pledge Options & Stretch Goals

When it comes to backing the campaign, you can start out with a set of rules alongside the game cards. This is if you already have the miniatures!

If you want to get yourself some new miniatures then you can also get yourself a proper Reiver Warband.

There are five mounted Reivers alongside eight Reivers on foot. The first phase of miniatures has already been finished and they will be available in metal. White Dragon Miniatures are going to be handling the printing of the base miniatures which will then be cast by Griffin Moulds. All of the painted miniatures you see here were done by Andrew Taylor.

If you want all of that good stuff then you can buy the Starter Set which comes with the rules and the miniatures.

Stretch Goals have also been added into the mix for those who have backed this campaign. We start with something fun like the Envoy's Lackey who seems like he has got the short end of the stick.

Are you going to be giving this game a go?
