Modiphius Entertainment have announced a new miniatures game based on The Elder Scrolls.

The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms is a skirmish miniatures game set in Tamriel, and uses a modified version of the core mechanics and rules from Modiphius’ Fallout: Wasteland Warfare game.

Players will build bands of adventurers based on the various characters, races, and factions from The Elder Scrolls franchise, all represented by 32mm resin miniatures.

A typical force will consist of between 1-6 heroes and 3-15 troops. Like their Fallout miniatures game, Call to Arms will include RPG elements and campaign systems, allowing players to loot items and weapons from the battlefield during a game.

Call to Arms will be objective-driven, and feature quests to complete during a match. There is also an AI system that allows you to play the game solo, or spice up your battles against other players with hostile monsters that will attack both parties.

The first wave is based on Skyrim, and will feature forces drawn from the Dragonborne and their allies, the Stormcloaks, and the Imperial Legion. Content from The Elder Scrolls Online and Oblivion are in development as well.

Preorders are now open for a promo miniature of the Dragonborne featuring a scenic base for $18.99, and the first wave will ship in June. Quantities are limited, with additional waves shipping in July and August.

The miniature doesn’t contain any rules, but there will be a two-player starter set released later this year that contains rules on how to use the Dragonborne in your games. The initial starter box will launch alongside some reinforcement expansions to bolster your party.
