Bot War is a 10mm skirmish wargame played on a 3'x3' table. While the scale is 10mm, Bots and other creatures range from 20mm for the smallest Bot to 140mm for the huge combined Bots. The story takes place on an alternate Earth and revolves around two main protagonists: The Democracy, a reflection of 1980s USA, and Atlantica, an underwater kingdom inspired by Atlantis. There are 10 different factions and the game opens after a major, devastating war between The Democracy and Atlantica in which the arrival of Bots saved the Democracy from destruction and slavery. Welcome to Bot War!
Atlantica is a secret city submerged deep in the Atlantic Ocean. It is not a human city, but a city of Mer people. Atlantica is essentially a feudal society ruled by a royal class. At the top of this system is King Gills. King Gills is a technological genius, having an understanding of technology bordering on the supernatural. Only two things rival King Gills' intelligence -- his ambition and insatiable lust for power.
Far beneath the ocean, King Gills and his mermen legions laboured to bring forth war machines and armies with which to conqueror the surface of the Earth. However, combined Valiant and Democracy forces forced him back to the depths. Unable to match the versatility and brute force in close quarters of the allied forces, King Gills bided his time. Then a meteor fell from space and landed right in the Atlantic. This "meteor" was a ship containing a sentient being much more technologically advanced than King Gills could even have imagined. It was like nothing on planet Earth, and King Gills moved quickly to study this creature and learn all he could. It wasn't long before the king's intellect fully understood all there was to know about this new technology. He rebuilt the sentient being, a bot called Omen, who in turn pledged service to the king's conquest as repayment for his new life and body. Gills then created from scratch a lieutenant to support his warriors in battle. He named this new bot Stingray. In addition, by studying Omen, Gills was able to create a new deadly weapon called the magnetic disruption gun. Now with bots by his side and new technologically advanced weaponry, King Gills is ready to challenge the surface once again...
