A link to the PDF flyer for the game release...

The Lancashire based miniature and games design company behind the acclaimed Secrets of the Third Reich system, has announced that after two years of development the new and much anticipated gaming system is now ready for the gaming public to enjoy.

Set in a darkly Gothic Victorian London, the game pits factions from the forces of good and evil against each other, in a quest for power and influence. The game, which uses Westwind’s highly acclaimed range of 28 mm miniatures, includes an integrated campaign system. This enables players to pursue the aims of their faction through an almost infinite range of scenarios and settings.

Taking its cues from Bram Stoker, Conan Doyle and the rich canon of Gothic horror, whilst adding a strong dash of Steampunk; Empire of the Dead is set in a world where a mixture of myth, fable and technology take on a terrifying reality.

At launch the game will see a range of starter sets available for purchase along with special characters to help players grow and enhance their faction into an all conquering force.

Announcing the launch, Andy Cooper the creative director behind the new game at West Wind said, ‘The growth in skirmish games and the rich background of the Gothic Horror genre provide the perfect backdrop for Empire of the Dead. We wanted a game which enabled players to immerse themselves in the narrative of the game, whilst facing the tactical and strategic challenges that gamers demand’.
