Empires- the hybrid miniatures boardgame.
In the game of EMPIRES you step into the role of a mighty warlord in a medieval-fantasy world in which wizards, heroes, fearsome creatures and powerful engines of war are a part of everyday life. Players recruit units, heroes and wizards for their armies, build villages, cities and fortresses, and try to defeat their opponents' forces and conquer their territories in order to expand their own empires.
The play style is reminiscent of classic real-time strategy pc games such as Age of Empires, where you gather resources from structures you own and use them to build more, train troops and control territory.

For many years, the Humans and Orcs waged bloody war, tearing up the earth, felling the trees, and scattering the wildlife. In the end, both sides lay bloody and bruised, with no true victor. While they fought, the Dwarves built their armies. They huddled in their workshops and made war machines and golems. Now is the time for the Dwarves to march for the surface to strike at their weakened foes. As the Dwarves calculated in their caverns, the Warlords of Thain sat high on their island hills. Their shamans communed with the spirits of eagle and wolf, their warriors practised for the coming battles, and their leaders waited for the final word of attack.
Now, the demons have returned from their exile, and there is more at stake than ever before. Enemies are repelled from all sides, the races are as divided as they have ever been, and the preservation, or end, of life in the world is the final prize.
Demonworld is a fantasy wargame in miniature. With easy-to-learn rules, you control units of soldiers, commanders, vehicles, artillery, spirits, giants, and flying creatures. Use powerful magic to defeat your enemy. Locate artifacts lost to time. Defend the honour of your race.

Thyron Shedrak, supreme commander of the Imperial Army, watched the battle. Seemingly endless rows of green-skinned creatures surged towards the Imperial positions. Huge abominable monstrosities towered above the mass of armour, shields, and spears, wielding gigantic weapons. The advancing ogres hit the thin line of the Imperial footsoldiers; mighty axes and big, double-handed swords struck at shields and armour. The Imperials had to withdraw before the onslaught of the ten foot-tall monsters, but Khaibar Thyron Shedrak hadn’t expected otherwise. When the first ogres broke through the Imperial line, he raised his hand and ordered the Knights of the Order to attack. While the ogres were still rallying, the heavily-armoured riders began their charge with couched lances. The trot of the heavy battle-steeds accelerated to a thundering gallop, and moments later the spearhead of the formation clashed into the ogres’ flank.
The age of darkness has begun. The dreadful demon hordes of the Icelords of Isthak, Clanngett’s Orcs, and the barbarian war clans of Thain are assaulting the Empire. Will heroic Knights of the Order and Noble Imperial troops emerge victorious, or will the creatures of the Dark Forces triumph?
DEMONWORLD is a game of fantasy battles with miniatures played on hex maps. The easy-to-learn rules provide three levels of difficulty and encompass commanders, formations, terrain, morale, chariots, artillery pieces, Dragons, Giants, flying creatures, magic, fire, artefacts, buildings, and scenarios.
The core rulebook includes sample forces for Empire and Orcs. There are currently forcebooks available for Orcs, Empire, The Icelords of Isthak, Elves and Dwarves. Forcebooks for The Warlords of Thain, Goblins and Dark Elves will be coming soon.
The Demonworld range of miniatures are in our opinion some of the best 15mm figures currently available. The majority of the models are Werner Klocke sculpts and the level of detail simply has to be seen in the metal to really appreciate it. Each race has all the typical troops required to build an army- swordbearers, archers, spearmen etc. but they also feature some unique models- Goblin Beetle flyers, Dwarven Battle Riders, the Empire Rolling Fortress to name just a few..
Along with Wizards, Dragons, Heroes and personalities the Demonworld range allows you to build vast armies to play out epic battles or with our smaller packs you can sample the range and build smaller forces for other rulesets.
