Erin game of Celtic Myths
Alternative Armies Unique Celtic Mythology Skirmish Game System
"From the very dawn of time, the land existed. Invaded, colonised, deserted, invaded once more, and always fighting against the darkness that dwelt in the Northern Seas. The land was rich with Magic, a place for Heroes, Gods and Monsters. This land has been and shall always be Erin. Now sit you down and listen for this tale will fascinate and confound you in equal measure, for what I speak of is no longer vivid life in this world of men...."
Erin is a Wargame based on the 'Invasion Cycle' of Celtic Ireland. It is designed to be used with Alternative Armies range of Celtic Mythology Miniatures, all of these intended to portray the feel of accurate Celtic Mythology. Ancient Magics, old Gods and Monsters from the mists of time are common in the land of Erin as well as mere men and women.
