12mm Kits from Victrix Games




12mm Kits from Victrix Games 

Press Release from Victix Games:

We’re excited to announce the we have set up a new company called VICTRIX GAMES.

This is a subsidiary company of Victrix Limited and will be focused on bringing you fully functional gaming systems as well as high quality vehicles and figures to use in these games.

Our first launch is a 12mm World War II Gaming System. We have chosen 12mm as it allows gaming on a 1:1 scale for all vehicles and figures. By ensuring that 1 vehicle/figure represents 1 vehicle/figure in real, life, it gives the game a more authentic feel, with the attritional nature of war being ever present in the gamers' mind. 12mm allows for realistic scale actions even on a small 6ft by 4ft gaming table without the battle looking overcrowded and unrealistic. You decide how big or small you want the game to be. Our figures will also be compatible with most 10mm ranges.

This first theatre will be based on Normandy 1944. It includes separate British, German and American forces. The game is predominantly a tank and infantry-based system but will also include rules for ground attack aircraft. Other theatres currently being developed include North Africa and the Eastern Front.

The system is based around a set of core rules which is scheduled to be released in late 2020. However, for those already keen to get their hands on VICTRIX GAMES’ products, you’ll be glad to hear that in the meantime we will be releasing several vehicle and figure sets based on the Normandy 1944 theatre. You can expect these to be available in early 2020.

Thanks to the use of smaller cutting tools, we have really been able to accommodate the finer details of the tanks. You’ll notice that these vehicles have even sharper details than some larger scale models.

We hope you’re excited as us for the release of these superb figures. We’ll be bringing you more VICTRIX GAMES’ details over the coming weeks. Keep your eyes peeled for updates.
