Wars of Ozz is a fantasy miniatures game set in the marvellous world of Ozz first chronicled by L. Frank Baum’s in 1900, later turned into movies by MGM and Disney and now the inspiration for a totally unique mass battle tabletop experience. Sally 4th have taken Baum’s world as an inspirational starting point for creating their own ‘Ozz’: a post-apocalyptic Earth where after the last ‘Madness Bomb’ fell in the ‘Last Great War’, survivors mutated and chaos reigned until several hundred years later the Wizard arrived. Figures include everything for building Munchkin, Quadling, Gilikin or Winkie Armies (including Munchkin pirates...) and character sets that include Dorothy, Toto, The Tinman, Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion. The rules – written by Buck Surdu – have been designed to support solo, two player and team play. The rulebook contains everything needed to play a streamlined and intuitive ‘fantasy’ horse and musket mass battle game, together with full background of the world, it’s factions, scenarios and uniform guides.
