The battle to save Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has begun! Last weekend, Knight Models has announced that they will be developing a miniatures game set in the world of Harry Potter. Will you be able to defeat the basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets? And will you scare the Death Eaters from the Forbidden Forest?
The new miniatures game will contain all your favorite wizards and witches from the Harry Potter world. You will be able to take on battles with the iconic trio: Harry, Ron, and Hermione, but you can also call the other members of Dumbledore's Army to help you. For battles that are really intense the members of the Order of the Phoenix will come to aid you in your quest, there are miniatures for Remus Lupin, Alastor Moody, and Sirius Black among others.
The other side of the battle has all sorts of characters that fight for Voldemort depending on the scenario. There are different monsters that will fight for him, but also his loyal Death Eaters. Pictures have been spotted that contain miniatures for Lucius Malfoy, Bellatrix Lestrange, Peter Pettigrew and many others.
The announcement also contained some of the scenario's that will be available at launch. For example, you will be able to battle the Basilisk and a younger Voldemort in the Chamber of Secrets, The Forbidden Forest will be a battleground where you will fight spiders, trolls and possibly even some death eaters and of course the ultimate battle for Hogwarts between Voldemort and the Order of the Phoenix will be in the box. Use your spells to keep your enemies at a distance, make potions to become more powerful and influence the battlefield to be victorious!
You might have to wait a while to be able to get a copy of this game. A Kickstarter campaign will start on March 14th to fund this game, but no delivery date has been set so far. The campaign will contain a core box that has everything you need to start your adventure, but more expansions that add characters and scenarios might be available in the campaign or in the not so distant future.
