Heres the second in my series of articles on other wargames that are sadly now out of production but still well worth collecting and gaming!
Chronopia is a direct descendant of Leviathan having many of the original creative team from the older game develop the new one. I remember it being released and reading a review in an independent gaming magazine whose name I forget but seeing the fantastic artwork by Adrian Smith coupled with the chunky and interesting miniatures pictured in the article really got me wanting to get a copy of it.
I still own the complete rulebooks but as with so many other games I never actually managed to play it! Alas its now gone with the end of Target Games and then Excelsior who managed to secure the license for a while. Some of the miniatures are still available from Prince August, the company who cast all the miniatures but I found them a bit on the pricey side these days. Not to be put off I intend on rummaging through my bits boxes and scouring ebay and local gaming stores with the intention of eventually collecting up some reasonable forces for each of the factions.
At the same time I may end up using different companies miniatures as some of the existing ranges are a bit on the bulky side! On a brighter note Four A Miniatures have started producing some rather nice dwarves which are perfect for the dwarven clans featured in the original game!
My next update will hopefully cover some assorted bits and bobs for an assortment of stuff and hopefully some painted miniatures will turn up at some point too!
All the best!
