Para Bellum Games have long used their living world to shape the current events allowing the players to do more than just play in Ea but to shape its development. Now with the upcoming launch of Project 8, they will be able to go further and pick the next army that will be worked on for release in the game!


Project 8 // Para Bellum Games

Starting on December 26th and running through until January 27th 2023, participants will be able to vote on which army will be making it's way to the tabletop for Conquest. The winning faction will then be worked on and released in 2024, so 2023's schedule is already locked in and won't be changing (City States here I come!).

Voting will take place in four blocks, and during each block, more information about the faction's lore, sub-factions, and playstyle concepts, and will finish with early faction concept artwork. So by the time the votes are tallied, we'll have a decent idea of who they are and how they should look and play on the tabletop. There are no runners-up in this either first passed the post becomes the new faction and the others suffer the ignominy of relegation to wheneverness so if you fancy one of these then make sure you're registered and vote.

Sellswords/Dogs of War

Grab your sword and sell it to the highest bidder; versatility and diversity are the name of the game for this multi-faction army of sellswords, ready to offer their violent services to the highest bidder. Cross-faction play becomes an option, while new options/entries for existing factions will become available, as the Dogs of War have no qualms in hiring anyone worth their salt and working for anyone with deep enough pockets.


There is more in the bowels of Eä than dark tunnels and darkness. There, in the endless corridors beneath Yggdrasil, there are those who remember what the whole world has forgotten, what the whole world has forgiven: the crimes of the Dweghom against the Dragons and Crafters. But those that survived their genocidal madness remember everything and they have forgiven nothing. Soon, the whole world will suffer as they did.

Sorcerer Kings

God-killers. Masters of Elements. Founders of not mere kingdoms but of an entire continent and its civilization. Once members of an elite cabal of practitioners of the Old Dominion who drunk hastily into the power left behind by the Anathematic, the Sorcerer Kings eagerly shift in their elemental thrones as the winds of fortune change, inviting them home…

If you want a bit more information about the three factions and some lovely sneak peeks of the City States miniatures then Stavros' video above will take you through it. The first block of voting runs for almost two weeks from December 26th to January 6th so you have time to catch up if you miss this during the holidays.

On the 26th of December and every Friday after that, your votes will be renewed – so you will have the chance to vote twice during the first round and once every round after that. The vote total for each faction will be reset at the beginning of each round when they will also release new information on all three factions. As you discover new things about your choices, you might see your preferences shift along the way…

Hel is tickling my fancy but Dogs of Wars opens up some interesting possibilities as well, as well as previews of races and units for other armies down the line.

What would you pick?
