About

Lords of the Motleyverse is a fast paced miniatures and dice skirmish game where players control squads of unique characters fighting for supremacy over treacherous battlefields. Each faction has a distinctive play style and every model is loaded with its own set of potent abilities. 

The combat system is built around six different types of dice and each die has a different statistical layout. Learning to optimize the dice facings in conjunction with the character’s abilities and the landscape are significant keys to victory. 

The battlefields are littered with dangerous terrain features and they are just as brutal as any adversary. Spikes, pits, saw blades, tentacles and fire spewing skull columns have the ability to cause massive amounts of damage, so positioning and board control are extremely important. Many heroes and villains alike have fought valiantly only to succumb to the blood thirsty landscape.

The game features a randomized activation order that continuously creates opportunities for new tactics and strategies and offers a special bonus for the player that is first in the lineup. During the maintenance phase the player whose token is first in the activation order has control over the terrain features and may be able to shield their models from harm while delivering punishing attacks and damage to their adversaries.

Mega Dude 

Figures come unpainted

Mega Dude is a fearless combatant and one of the most powerful heroes in the Motleyverse! He is loved by his people and his countless acts of bravery and heroism has earned the favor with the benevolent and powerful Skull Queen. Rumors of an undead monster carving a path of destruction across Krahgen has captured Mega Dude's attention and put him on a collision coarse with the horrible menace.

The Skall Warriors 

Figures come unpainted

The Skall warriors are comprised of the clans strongest, fastest, and most highly skilled fighters. They are a selfless unit of soldiers that live to protect their people and their homes, and every member of the clan begins training, from an early age, in hope of one day joining their ranks.

Lord Dreadcore 

Figures come unpainted

Lord Dreadcore is a ruthless abomination with an insatiable appetite for war and destruction. His actions and path are chaotic and unclear and no one seems to understand what his goals or intentions truly are, or if he even has any at all. He is a menace and a threat to all that oppose him and it may very well take a coalition of heroes to stop his reign of terror. 

Bone Warriors 

Figures come unpainted

Bone warriors are the most common henchmen among the ranks of the undead. They are relentless warriors that never tire, never quit and feverishly wade into battle with zero hesitation. They are the perfect soldier.

The Board

The game board is double sided and each side delivers a different experience and has its own challenges to overcome.

Side (A) - 18" X 18"

Side (A) is great for larger games with more miniatures and tons of terrain. This side of the board offers players a wider area to set up and opens up a slew of tactical possibilities. Playing a full game with all four factions on this side of the board generally takes 45 to 120 minutes.

Side B - 12" X 12"

Side (B) is great for fast games, micro tournaments and is great for learning to play the game. Side B also has version of gameplay that is specific to it called "King of the Arena" This side of the board is ruthless, and one poor defense roll more often than not leads to doom. Four player games generally last about 15 to 30 minutes.
