If you just can't quite get your fix of Age of Conan
this spring when it releases in online form, there's hope yet! I mean, what would you do if the internet was down, or the power went out? Read a book? Psshh! You'd play the upcoming Age of Conan board game
by candlelight, of course!
Described as a "massive new strategy game" (see what they're trying to do there?), the AoC
board game will feature several miniatures based on the visuals created by Dark Horse Comics
. So far, we're shown two new prototypes: the Stygian Emissary and the Hyperborean Army figure. The game developers, Roberto Di Meglio, Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi of Nexus Games
said they've chosen the Dark Horse Comic style for their miniatures because those are simply the ones they liked the best, despite the many other interpretations in the past.
