Presenting! Mag Bellum.


Today I have something marvelous to show you. It is the result of much hard work and I hope it will change people’s war gaming lives a little as it’s designed to be space-saving.

Many of us don’t have big games rooms, some of us have only one room, some of us have kids and some don’t own a garage. That was the motivation in creating a tile system that anyone, no matter how much space they had, would be able to have a great tabletop board to play on.

In the images below you can see what will be a 2 x 2 skirmish board. The tiles are thin and magnetized. Some tiles are indented to allow scenery plates to be inserted – this allows you to have a variety of scenery that can fit on the same board giving you more options as to the type of board you want to play on. The kit shown is a prototype and some things have changed for the final products.


And here it is all assembled in two different configurations. You will be able to make a board any size you like with this system and it will just pack away into its box and be placed away with ease.


The final kit will be much bigger than the one shown and will have a variety of different tiles included, with enough scenery plates to create different settings for you to wage war on. Also, and I think this is cool, you will get a whole set of pieces that you can use to create a zone mortalis type board. The theme of this will be an ancient library, with other themes being released as well so you can mix things up if you choose. Below are images of the tiles and a setup.


In the main kit you will get 64 tiles which is enough to create a 4 x 4 board, with endless possibilites as to how you can lay it out. Expansions that are currently being designed will be available as kits to bring even more variety to your games, like multi level, with further designs being created as well for different scale games.

The possiblilities are endless with this system and I’ll be showing you more very soon.

    1. Cheers dude!

  5. Aw yeah πŸ™‚

    1. Awwwwww Yeah!!

  6. I like the terrain piece slots. Looks really smart.

    1. Thanks Thomas. Yes the idea behind those is for it to look like the scenery is part of the board and not sitting on top.

  7. Noice, this could be really ace. Being a Londoner on a ‘meh’ wage bracket, space is at a premium. So what you’re proposing could be damn useful (it’s already looking ace and the zone mortalis board concept is spot on). Will you be setting up a Kickstarter or some such?

    1. Thanks mate. I will be going to kick starter but need to generate interest first. You in London hey? Same here. We should hook up. Send me an email. πŸ™‚

      1. If I can help, feel free to let know bud. I’ll shoot you an email in a mo, as that’d be ace.

      2. I sure will! I’ll look out for it πŸ™‚

  8. A great idea, magnets for the win! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh yeah!!
