A tabletop skirmish wargame set in Tamriel has been announced! It's The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms from Modiphius, who previously created Fallout: Wasteland Warfare.

Skirmish wargames are a type of figurine tabletop games where players have small armies to fight eachother. Additionally, Call to Arms has not only a single player mode, but also a whole faction dedicated to it. There's also extra fun like in any other tabletop game: you can paint your models.

Armies in this game usually comprise 1–6 heroes and 3–15 troops (followers, soldiers). Heroes are iconic characters such as General Tullius, Ulfric Stormcloak, Marcurio, Lydia, or Hadvar. Specific rules are not known yet, but we know the system is Wasteland Warfare system changed and rewritten to suit The Elder Scrolls.

The game will be released in waves, each of them inspired by different events and characters. The first one will feature the Skyrim Civil War with three factions available: the Stormcloaks, Imperial Legion, and Dragonborne (sic, it's Dragonborne, not Dragonborn) with the third one dedicated to playing solo. It's known that waves will be inspired by The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and The Elder Scrolls Online, with even more coming.

It's confirmed that various terrains, sceneries, accessories and dice bags are planned.

What's more, any battles can be altered with narrative. There are scenarios that include quests, objectives and loot that players can obtain. Therefore, the game comprises both elements of traditional RPG and regular skirmish games.
