    ZombieSmith Demo Day

    September 10, 2012

    Coming up this Saturday, we’ll be hosting demos by ZombieSmith miniatures from 12 to 5pm in the store. If you haven’t see these guys at KublaCon or Pacificon in recent years, then you’re missing out. There always seems to be a crowd around their demo tables no matter what time of day or night. But we’re giving you another chance, because ZombieSmith is making an appearance at Gamescape!

    We’ll be featuring two of their awesome games: This Quar’s War and War of Ashes. This Quar’s War is a great set of rules for both skirmish and full-size battles, taking place in a World War I-esque, dystopian fantasy setting. The Quar are a race of cartoonish, round-bodied, long-nosed creatures that have been at total war for more than a hundred years. Their technology is early-20th century and their fashion is trench-chic. The miniatures, which are available in both 28mm and 15mm, are full of character and crisp of detail, lending themselves to beautiful paint jobs very well. Game play is fast and intuitive with lots of choices for a good tactical feel.

    War of Ashes is set in a world closer to our Dark Ages. Sword and shield are everyone’s essential tools. The inhabitants of Agaptus vary from the Muppet-like Elvorix and Vidaar to the gremliny Jaarl, and the miniatures for this game are instant love; there’s just something about a creature that looks like Grover from Sesame Street dressed up in armor and armed with a sword or spear. But don’t think that because the minis are cute that the game play isn’t serious! This game captures the unique battlefield tactics of fighting in a shield wall, with broad, clashing lines of troops and roaring taunts that generate Froth to power each unit. War of Ashes is whimsical, Medieval fun!

    We’ll have samples of both rules systems to check out and starters for all of the armies available for sale on the day of the demo. ZS is offering the rules for This Quar’s War for free on their website, so you can read up before dropping by this weekend for the demo. Cool stuff!
