Scarab Miniatures was initially set up in 2008 to produce wargames miniatures for World War One and Two by Rob Broom. Having been made redundant from Games Workshop - where he had been Warhammer Historical Manager producing a series of supplements for the popular Warhammer Ancient Battles ruleset and some new products - Rob set about writing War & Conquest.
Using his experience and knowledge from many years of wargaming and running the Warhammer Historical business, Rob created a set of Ancient and Medieval wargames rules that bring new and innovative ideas to traditional game play.
War & Conquest is an exciting and dynamic full color publication, with a modern and contemporary look. It is fully illustrated throughout with inspiring photographs and detailed captions. The book has been getting fantastic reviews for its quality, high production values and ease of gameplay.
The tremendous design and layout of War & Conquest was by Pete Borlace. Pete had worked with Rob at Games Workshop and joint projects included Warhammer Ancient Battles and the successful 'Legends' series. Pete had also worked on the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle games products and has his own design business.
Scarab Miniatures currently have in production the first of a series of supplements and expansions for War & Conquest. Also in the pipeline is a World War One miniatures game and 'Projekt X' - a World War Two based skirmish miniatures game and sourcebook delving into the murky world of espionage and secret sciences based on a mix of fact and plausible fiction.
