Runewars Cheap Wargaming Miniatures

As I mentioned in our last post, I recently shelled out $107 dollars for a large order of discounted box sets for the Runewars Miniatures Game, a fantasy genre wargame initially released in 2016 by Fantasy Flight Games.

When the shipment arrived on my doorstep a few days after my online purchase, I was apparently dazzled by all the colorful packaging, and immediately ordered a second round of Runewars miniatures, which you can watch us unbox in the above video.

My second Runewars order set me back an additional $80, but that seemed like a reasonable gamble considering the number of minis I’d be receiving. (Of course there was always a chance I wouldn’t like the figures, but I rolled the dice anyway.)

For my $80 investment I received the Uthuk Y’llan Army Expansion (containing 22 plastic miniatures), the Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command box, and a pack of four Flesh Ripper beasts. My purchase also included a box of Elven infantry and the Elven command group expansion, giving me over 40 miniatures at just under $2 per figure.

Was it a good deal? I think so. While the Runewars miniatures don’t have the fine detail of some of the higher-level sculpts out there, they’re definitely in the “good enough” category for wargaming, especially if you’re trying to flesh out some squads or build a fantasy army on the cheap.

Plus as you’ll see in the video, the Runewars miniatures are a snap to assemble. They definitely won’t appeal to modelers, but again, if someone wants to speed-build a low-cost fantasy army, then discount Runewars minis might be a viable option.
