Collins Epic Wargames is pleased to announce a partnership with Strato Minis Studio from Poland, makers of exceptional 6mm miniatures and known for their Hardwar game, to create multiple new Polyversal battlegroups with Combatant Tiles. Artist James Masino will return to create all new artwork and Ken Whitehurst and Byron Collins will design and balance the battlegroups. Collins Epic Wargames has ordered and received 74 miniatures from the extensive Strato Minis line to begin the selection and design process. Each battlegroup and any stretch goals will be fully designed with completed artwork prior to launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for production. These battlegroups will offer nice additions for existing Polyversal players and an excellent introduction to the game for new players.
Polyversal is a 6-15mm miniatures-agnostic game system that includes a powerful web-based design application called Arsenal and was recently nominated for a 2023 Origins Award for Best Miniatures Game.
Collins Epic Wargames released a new video showing how the Polyversal miniatures system can be used to convert and play with WWII miniatures. This video covers the general approach, some design tips for Arsenal, has a few examples, and uses 15mm Range 8 Peter Pig models for some selected US and German forces. Polyversal is primarily a sci-fi miniatures system, but the design tools can handle vehicles and equipment as far back as WWI. The game is available electronically on Wargame Vault or in printed format from Collins Epic Wargames.
