Getting Started: Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings

Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings is a unit-based miniatures wargame, set in the fantasy world of Ea. Players collect a faction of their choosing, build and paint their miniatures, and then meet each other on a 6ft by 4ft field of battle, amongst beautiful terrain pieces. The giant Jotun of the Nords will clash with the endless genetic clone armies of The Spires. The shuffling undead of The Old Dominion will meet the enormous reptilian monstrosities of The W’Adrhun on the field of glory. Victory will go to the general who commands his forces with the keenest strategy…and the best luck.

If leading your own army of fantasy troops and monsters is an interesting idea, read on for a beginner buyer’s guide to playing Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings.

Starting to play Conquest does not begin with a purchase but with some fun research. By going to, you can access a ton of reading materials on the lore of the game, the history and character of the available factions, and a set of rules to learn the game. You can go as deep as you want into your choice of faction, or you may pick based of which miniatures you like best. Either way, decide on one of the factions to collect.

Conquest offers two roads to starting to play. Each faction has its own starter set, which contains a character to lead your army on the field, a selection of units to start your force, and a paperback copy of the rules. Each set also comes with some advice on how to continue to build your force. Alternatively, an aspiring general may already have an ally or rival in mind with which to play, and may want to consider the two player starter sets. These awesome sets come with two fantastic starting forces for The Spires and The Hundred Kingdoms and two copies of the paperback rulebook; Ideal for getting right into playing with a friend.

If you are new to miniatures war gaming altogether, then you will also want to purchase the necessary equipment to assemble and paint your forces. We recommend a can of spray primer, a bottle of super glue, some brushes, and a set of paints that match the theme for your chosen faction. Different types of flocks and base effects can also be used to give your miniatures a beautiful scenic finish.
