Summon mythical gods and beasts to fight by your side in Glorantha: The Gods War!

Miniatures are the main draw of Glorantha!

Glorantha is an area control war-game where players build empires dedicated to gods based on the mythic realm of Glorantha and battle for supremacy.

The game features the largest miniatures (are they even considered miniatures at this point?) that I have ever played with. The Gods are wonderfully detailed and their massive frames in comparison to the common mortals give players perspective on the epic scale of battles being waged on the map. 

While the movement and combat mechanics are straightforward, Gloranthaโ€™s fascinating action point allowance system is rather hard to master. The difficulty is further compounded when considering the various unique factions that the players have to learn and decipher.

The challenge will definitely compel war-gamers and engine-building fans alike to give this game a go!


If you would like to learn how to play the game, watch this How to The Gods War series by the publisher Petersen Games.

And if you prefer watching a full playthrough, I recommend grabbing some popcorn to watch this long video by Petersen Games!
