Yeah no one likes the "I rolled badly my guys sit around doing nothing" mechanics

Which sounds like a promising thing about this system. All too many of the WH based games completely ignore the command and control element of warfare; turning games more into elaborate chess matches.

I like the idea of somewhat limited activation. That rabble of Goblins may not do quite what you want them to, but they won't just sit there squabbling.

The Oathmark blog has an art preview up: https://ospreypublishing.com/blog/oathmark_art_preview/

Personally I like it :)

If you read the bit about Kingdom building then an army can contain any or all of the races. Depends on the areas within th the kingdom.

Yes, the lore supports anyone working with anyone. Maybe they're unethical evil elves. Maybe the goblins are not a bad sort once you get to know them. Maybe it's purely an alliance of convenience, or a matter of one group being subjugated by the other.

There are all sorts of possibilities. In any case, it doesn't look too good for this particular unit of dwarves right now.

I've been looking over the Oathmark Kingdom Designer preview and getting all sorts of excited for my burgeoning Dwarf Kingdom.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the following monsters/creatures in 28mm, while I wait for Northstar to come through with their own sculpts?
-Indrik (Unicorn stag?)
- Eachy (4 limbed snake monster)
- Barghest

While waiting for Oathmark and the supplement introducing undead, I find myself selfishly hoping that Northstar supplies us with an undead cavalry box containing unarmored, unbarded skeletal horses in plastic.  We've been missing a good, plain plastic horse skeleton miniature since GW retired the ancient skeletal steed sprue when they canned the Tomb Kings.  It'd be nice to have that option again for skeletal/undead light cavalry.

Or maybe those greedy dwarves are actually followers of an evil underground God... with tentacles.

Well evil races tend to align with other evil races after all. ;-)
