Origin: [LL. confrontatio.]
Confrontation is a tactical fantasy miniature wargaming in which the combatants are represented by metal figures in 28 mm scale. For comparison purposes, the system's figures are slightly larger than those of Games Workshop or The Foundry. The game is set in Aarklash, a world of medieval fantasy where knights, wizards, priests and barbarians fight each other as well as fantastic creatures such as wolfen, elves, orcs, goblins and the undead. The entire world is at war and all are fighting for the supremacy of the continent. The rules are intended to be versatile, and are able to represent a small fight between a handful of warriors just as well as a large skirmish between several dozen soldiers and their leaders. The last rules were in its fourth edition, a single hardback edition. The first edition was only available in French, German and Italian, while the second was available in French, German, Italian, English and Spanish. Rackham collapsed in 2010 but several companies decided to continue the Confrontation line. Legacy Miniatures started to reanimate the line in 2011. They have even produced some brand-new miniatures that had not been in the market due to Rackham liquidation. In April 2012, CoolMiniOrNot announced via Ravage magazine that they would be publishing a new edition of Confrontation based on the 3rd edition rules.
