The creators of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare has today announced that they will be bringing the world of The Elder Scrolls to the world of tabletop. Modiphius announced through IGN that Skyrim would be receiving a new miniatures war game using the core rules which formed the basis for Wasteland Warfare. The new Skyrim game features 32mm resin miniatures and tasks gamers with commanding a hero and taking a force of minions into classic dungeons to clear them of horrific monsters.

Chris Birch, founder of Modiphius said:

“We're not trying to make a competitive wargame like everyone else does, so we've gone very heavily down the narrative route. Battles will be part of that, because they're fun, but you're you're pursuing a storyline. And you can play can play cooperatively together. The classic thing with wargames is two people go to a table to play on one walks away happy. This is different. Story has been really important for us, as much as it is important to the actual video game itself.”

The solo mode of the new Skyrim miniatures game will feature an autonima system which has players rolling dice to dictate the actions of the non-player characters. With narrative controlled by a deck of cards, the quests will unfold a similar storyline to the narrative of the original game which it is based on. The new game will be released in waves with the first release planned for Christmas 2019, so get saving if you want a brand new hobby to spend all your money on, or maybe just Santa for special favor if you've been good enough.
