The Elder Scrolls series is getting its own tabletop miniatures game and it’s called The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms.
Bethesda released the news yesterday, announcing that game makers Modiphius Entertainment would be in charge of development. Modiphius are the same company that made last year’s Fallout: Wasteland Warfare miniatures game for Bethesda, and Call to Arms will allegedly borrow heavily from its predecessor.
According to Modiphius, the tabletop game will span the entire Elder Scrolls universe starting with a collection of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 32mm miniatures and following with sets for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and The Elder Scrolls Online. The Skyrim miniatures set will include such notable characters as Hadvar, Ralof, Yrsarald Thrice-Pierced, Marcurio, Mjoll the Lioness, Ulfric Stormcloak, Galmar Stone-Fist, General Tullius, and Lydia.
In addition to this there is a Dovahkiin miniature available for purchase right now on Modiphius’s website for £14.99. The Dragonborn Triumphant launch promo figurine (as it is called) is described as “a 32mm scale multi-part high quality resin miniature complete with scenic base. The Dragonborn is packaged unassembled and unpainted in a small black presentation box with silver embossed Skyrim symbol. No game mechanics are included, however the Two Player Starter Set will include rules for using the Dragonborn in the game.”
Teams of up to six heroes will lead up to 15 generic troops through a variety of scenarios. A press release from Modiphius states that these scenarios will range from “dungeon delves, where you seek out lost treasure, to running battles across the ruined outposts that dot the landscape of Tamriel, all the while fulfilling quests and narrative-driven scenario objectives that will see your band of heroes grow from game to game.”
Initially the game will ship with only two forces: the Stormcloaks and the Imperial Legion. However Modiphius has assured that “more races and characters from across the Elder Scrolls stories are planned” – including a Dragonborn single player set.
There’s no word on how much the game will cost yet, but The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms is set for a Christmas 2019 release. Exact dates and pricing to follow when available.
