What is Hogs Of War: The Miniatures Game about?


Hogs Of War The Miniatures Game features several unique and streamlined mechanics.

With Hogs, you can build a Base which introduces your Swill Income, Unit Cap, Unit Production, and Tech Tree in an easy-to-learn way.

Using beautiful “Tetris-esque” Building Tiles, you can build refineries, tanks, hangars and more. Each game of Hogs feels different because there are thousands of combinations!

Terrain tiles are installed on the Battlefield based on the Mission or by the Players in Sandbox mode. By creating impassable areas for some Unit Types, providing defensive cover, or improving/reducing movement speed, these Terrain Tiles shape the battlefield!

Rivers, Roads, Forests, and Mountain Tiles can be combined in various ways to create unique Battlefields with different strategies, tastes, and sweet spots!


Hogs have a fantastic mechanic for aerial vehicles, which makes them unlike any other unit available to a Hog General.

Move the Flight Speed and Direction Indicators on the Console to control the Vehicle’s movement and turn order. Using a Flight Screen, you can hide your choices from your opponents- bluff your way to victory!

Defend the skies by dropping bombs, strafing enemies, and hogfighting enemies. Your bacon might just be saved by reckless flying!

Each Airship is custom built using any combination of Airship parts the Player chooses. You can send up a small dirigible laden with bombs or make your airship gigantic!

Attack Dice

Dice with asymmetrical outcomes make attacking the enemy a fun yet deeply tactical experience. The key to victory is cleverly matching up your units with the right enemy targets!

Each player has access to 100 Upgrade Cards and 8 Upgrade Units, allowing for hundreds of possible combinations.

Equip your Snipers with Jetpacks, Engineers with Super TNT, Tanks with supercharged engines or Biplanes with 360 degree machine guns…

Strategies can be refined and developed over a Campaign until you straddle the Battlefield like a mighty colossus!

The Campaign Book leads players through the land of Saustralasia in a conflict where only one faction can emerge triumphant. Alternatively, defend the Isle Of Swill in a Solo/ Co-operative “Horde” mode Mission against a fiendish AI enemy!
