Inspired equally by the historical conflicts and political intrigues of Britain in the 13th-16th centuries and the magic, mystery and adventure of myth and  legend, The Shattered Crown combines the feel of fielding historical armies with none of the restrictions. Want to create your own Lord, Coat of Arms and Liveries? Go ahead! Want to add a little cinematic heroism with characters of legendary skill and bravery? Get stuck in! Want to outsmart your opponent, leading him to think you’re attacking on one flank when actually you’re about to unleash a lightning storm against his cavalry?
The Shattered Crown’s unique activation system, utilising cards and bluffing, plus the extensive spell book, will allow you to do this and much more. Best of all, there’s no need to spend hundreds of pounds and hours putting together an epic force that needs a table fit for Arthur to play across, as The Shattered Crown allows you to field any size force from only a few units upwards – with a rich backstory of unfolding civil war to embed it in.
Like our flagship game, Across the Dead Earth, The Shattered Crown also focuses on campaign play, allowing the advancement and complete personalisation not just of your leaders and heroes, but of every unit in your army!
Unlike many other fantasy mass battle games, The Shattered Crown will not be won or lost in the creation of army lists before the game is played, as the tides of battle are forever shifting, and a genuinely tactical commander will be able to turn around any situation.
