Arcane Legions Update: I Have a Starter Set!

Wells Expeditions kindly forwarded me the retailer demo kit for their new miniature combat game, Arcane Legions.  I saw a very early prototype of the game at GTS 2009 and was impressed enough to follow the game’s development. Today I received the retailer demo kit. The kit is equivalent to the $35.00 starter set that will come out in September.  Tomorrow I planned on playing some board games at my local game store, but I think I will take this with me instead and get a feel for what the local gaming community feels about it. I will also run a game with Haaldaar, my co-blogger and give you a more detailed review on Monday.  In the meantime, here are a couple of shots to whet your appetite.

UPDATE: My review is now posted.

    Wow – that is cool looking stuff. This is something I am really excited to try out at GenCon. I have been following this for awhile as well.

    I believe the starter is supposed to have everything needed for all three armies – so I am curious how the basic box plays. Is it fun right away, or do you really need to expand the basic offering with extra stuff?

    Can’t wait to hear your take on it–I like the low entry cost–I think I could really promote it at my toy store. Be great to know how young of a player could get it (and enjoy it). Always looking for good games to get the 10-12 years old hooked!
