We Try Out the New GW Game
Shadespire, the latest Games Workshop board / miniatures game, represents quite a departure for the company. Set in the cursed city of Shadespire, within the Age of Sigmar fantasy setting, it focuses on "arena combat" between small warbands within the cursed city.
Unique from previous GW offerings, Shadespire uses some unique mechanics that focus on an interaction of miniatures, special combat dice and cards. The cards are structured to allow a deck building component, which opens up a new and quite interesting strategy aspect into the games.

The miniatures for the game are amazing, and have the bonus in that they also work with Age of Sigmar actions. They come molded in a unique basic color, so they can be used easily even before you paint them. And you will want to paint them, the level of detail is amazing.
