Confrontation Manuals and Rules
Here, you can find all manuals in Italian and English language for play at the classic Confrontation 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and Confrontation 4.0 versions of the game. For a more complete Archive, please check the Wiki.
Divination addresses the gods themselves and their servants, the faithful Priests that represent them on the battlefields. The magic of the Priests is powerful but variable, for it depends on the vagaries of the fickle gods. It also tends to be more defensive in nature than Wizards’ magic. The blisters of the Priests figures are packaged with the Divination Rules Booklet and several ‘Miracle’ cards to call upon the aid of the divine powers. The ‘Litanies’ card packs group together additional miracle cards. Fortification adds in war machines such as cannon, ballista, and chariots. Some of the existing figures, such as the Dwarf Steam Cannon are reclassified to war machines.
The third edition of Confrontation was issued as both basic rules, included in miniature blisters, and as a hardback bound advanced rules. The basic rules described combat and movement, but did not explain abilities or magic. The advanced rules included all rules from the second edition with some refinements in play. One notable aspect of the third edition was its obsolescence of the adventure, spell, and miracle card packs. The reworked magic rules in the third edition significantly reduced the number of available spells by eliminating the previously released spell books. The book also includes an extensive section covering the changes to the existing model line and associated cards. The unbalancing army cards were removed in this edition. Also removed was the declarable target number while making attack die rolls. Separate shooting and magic phases were also done away with. Now the round is based on only 4 phases with shooting taking place in the activation and magic being used throughout the round dictated by card text..
..An on-line only revision was published within a year of the publication of the third edition. Called “Confrontation 3.5”, this revision changed some abilities, reworked the line of sight rules, and changed the way spells and miracles were added to a force by removing points costs from them. This update also significantly changed the balance of ranged units by giving them the abilities “Bull’s eye” and “Assault fire” and giving units that already had those abilities “cookies” to improve them. Dogs of War was the only supplement for Confrontation, third edition.
Confrontation 4.0 (Age of Rag’Norak)
The fourth edition of Confrontation was named “Confrontation: Age of Rag’Norak”. This edition made major changes to the rules, including changing the game scope from single-model skirmish to small unit battle. As with second edition, Confrontation: Age of Rag’Norak has re-issued the game cards to reflect the new rules and statistics. The miniatures were pre-painted on rounded bases and made with plastic.
