Leviathan Rises!


This blog has been set up to cover the post apocalyptic fantasy wargame, Leviathan.

Back in 1995, a teenage me visited Macs Models on The Royal Mile in Edinburgh and saw a new wargame called Leviathan. Having recently moved away from GW, I was fascinated by the strange world that had been created and loved the big resin warbeasts and engines of destruction.

Better yet, Macs Models had lots of original artwork and I picked up a copy of the rulebook which sadly got put on a shelf and promptly forgotten about until 2008 when I went off to university in Worcester and for some reason, Leviathan was one of the few books I took along with me.

Over the next couple of years, I tried to put together a few warbands and blog about the whole experience but when coupled with university, work and several moves of house, the project stalled and I eventually gave up and once again, Leviathan returned to my bookshelf.

It's now 2018 and I believe it is time to re-explore the world of Leviathan. With this in mind, I've placed all my previous posts into draft status and will work through them to repost suitable ones and delete the dross that piled up here at the same time.


I've decided to settle with using the classic figures and resin sculpts supplemented only with figures from the same era that are stylistically similar to the originals.

Back in 2008/9 I put together this force:

Orc Horde

Sadly I lost quite a few of these chaps when I moved from one end of the country to the other and sold off most of what remained when I lost any motivation for the project so I will need to replace them.

I will be blogging about the experience as well as reviewing figures as I get and paint them as well as putting together terrain and possibly even a small battle report or two. Sadly my gaming budget is pretty frugal these days but I figure I can collect a limited number of points per month with the aim of painting them up.

Handily Leviathan is a skirmish wargame so small forces are quick and relatively cheap to put together. I'll be starting with the Dwarves as I actually have a few bits and bobs kicking about that will allow me to get the project off to a start!

I'll post an update in the next few days with some progress and hopefully a painted figure or two but in the meantime, All the best!
