Test of Honour Gaming Set
These 28mm miniatures can be used for games set during The Barons’ Wars, and not only that, they’ll work for both sides of the conflict! Additionally, they’ll work well for games that take you Crusading in the Middle East, particularly the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Crusades (and a few years/decades either side).

Mortal Gods is a game from Footsore Miniatures & Games the people behind Gangs of Rome and Victrix Limited, released in 2019. Greece has proven her might and the forces of the vast Persian Empire have been repulsed. Each City-State believes it played a key part in the victory and this newfound pride has brought about rivalry, greed and conflict.
Generals and statesmen vie for power and wealth in the chaos, risking exile or execution while the boldest and ambitious gather to them their Hoplites, these veteran warriors, bronze-clad and trained in war, stand loyal to their Strategos’ city or ideals.
The price of failure being exile or death. In this age of strife and conflict, bold men may seize greatness and become as Mortal Gods!
Test of Honour is a skirmish wargame played on a tabletop battlefield, with roughly 10-20 models on each side. Players select their force before each game based around a hero – perhaps a samurai, a masterless ronin, or even a warrior monk – along with one or two loyal companions and a variety of followers, who could be anything from clan soldiers to peasants.
Battles are swift and bloody as players alternate acting with one of their warriors – moving and fighting to achieve the objective of the scenario, whether that be cutting down the enemy, defending an outpost or finding and protecting a spy.
As you play through the battles, your hero will use new skills, and perhaps even take the shameful path of deceit and trickery to gain victory – such choices are the ultimate test of honour.
