WM: Exemplar Vengers – Protectorate Cavalry Unit (5) (resin and white metal)



The powerful and relentless Exemplar vengers stand among the deadliest warriors of the Protectorate. They ride into battle on war-bred Idrian stallions to disintegrate enemy lines with their lances before drawing blades to finish any left standing. Vengers are fueled by their faith, and their Oath of Brotherhood conveys the pains of their brothers. Each drop of spilled venger blood inspires the survivors to fight harder.


A player may field one Exemplar Venger cavalry unit for each warcaster in a Protectorate army.

Rebel raidersRebel Raiders (American Civil War)

$69.00 SRP

Rebel Raiders on the High Seas is a comparatively short and simple game of the naval conflict at sea and on the great rivers in the American Civil War. Easily playable in less than three hours, Rebel Raiders on the High Seas is a strategic contest between two players, one seeking to reunite the Union by force, the other to maintain its new independence in the face of the escalating industrial might and resolve of its northern brother. More of a representation than a detailed simulation of that conflict, the game is intensely engaging, highly interactive and moves along quickly, with players constantly responding and reacting to their opponent’s moves.

 Although Rebel Raiders on the High Seas is not a card-driven game, the cards ensure that each game is very different, and that a strategy which worked in one game may not prove as efficacious in the next. The game is also customizable with a menu of elective rules to provide each side with a variety of “what if” options to further vary play.

A House Divided™

The War Between the States 1861-1864.


A House Divided simulates the epic struggle of the American Civil War that was fought over the twin issues of slavery and state’s rights. The period from 1840 to 1861 saw these issues brought to a boil, and in 1861 the nation became tangled in a terrible war that lasted four long years.


The game depicts the war between North and South from the First Battle of Bull Run (or Manassas Junction) to Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Courthouse (or Grant’s surrender at Harrisburg…).  Each player leads one of these two nations and makes the strategic decisions which determine the outcome of the war.


The game board represents the United States, north and south and from the Atlantic coast to just west of the Mississippi. Including Missouri,  Iowa, Illinois Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia.  The play map contains a number of boxes, each representing a city, town or locations important to the war.  These boxes are connected by transportation lines – blue for rivers, tan for roads and black for railroads – which provide the paths to victory or defeat.


Will you keep the Union whole or force the separation of the United States?
