For some reason Saturday I woke up and started thinking of RISK EUROPE. This newest version has 4 different Medieval armies. What's different from other Risk games in that instead of having the same figures in different colors, this game actually have four armies, each with different figures. I went out and bought a copy of the game.
Of course I bought the game for the figures. Each army comes with 25 infantrymen, 12 archers, 12 cavalry and 4 siege engines. There are enough figures in each army to make up 4 BATTLELORE armies consisting of 6 infantry units, with one spare figure, 3 archer units, and 4 cavalry units.
|The Red Army, which looks like the are based on the Russian army. They are armed with catapults. The siege weapons are used in the game to capture castles|
|The green army looks like they're French. Their siege engine is a ballista.|
|The blue army is based on Scandinavian warriors. The best siege weapon of all; the battering ram. The cavalry man has horns on their helmets and capes that look like furs.|
|My personal favorites; the purple army that looks like Ottoman Turks. Their siege weapon is a trebuchet.|
|The RISK figure compare to a Peter Laing figure on the left, and an Airfix figure on the right.|
These figures would be perfect for someone who wants to get into Medieval wargaming cheaply. These figures might be used in a future Hyborian campaign.
