What Is The Path of Conquest
The Path of Conquest is an online Slow-Grow League, a series of events, videos and guides that you will be able to follow and participate in. Starting September 13th and until December, you will be able to join Warren, Gerry, Justin and John from OnTableTop and our own Leo and Konstantinos and explore all facets of Conquest.
The “Path of Conquest” is a tale, YOUR tale and the tale of an entire community, along with a tale of four gamers experiencing Conquest. It is also a debut effort by Para Bellum Wargames and OnTableTop to bring the community and hobby experience to your screens and tables, in these strange times we live in, based on OnTableTop’s popular “Slow Grow League” format.
Starting September 13th and until December, you will be able to join Warren, Gerry, Justin and John from OnTableTop and our own Leo and Konstantinos and explore all facets of Conquest, through a series of videos, guides and events that leave no stone unturned. Whether you are a new player or an existing one, you will get a chance to walk the path with them from the beginning and experience all aspects of the game – even some you did not know existed. Not only will you be able to learn everything about our first four factions, from their mechanics, to their lore, from assembly tips to help in picking color schemes and from the first, simple game to the building of lists and the devising of more complex strategies. You will also have the opportunity to learn all about factions other than your own, become privy to all their little secrets and see what to expect on the field, all the while sharing the excitement their players feel when they look at their armies. Every step of the way, you will be able to participate, to walk the Path of Conquest with them, paint, play, gather knowledge, experience and hobby time. And, well, go home with some goodies. 😉
How Does One Walk the Path of Conquest?
The answer is easy: by enjoying Conquest! Everything you see our four gamers do, you can do too; just make sure you use the handle #pathofconquest! Apart from the sheer fun, hobby time and epic battles you will get, you will also be rewarded for it.
Walking the Path of Conquest takes you through a journey of immersion in the world of Eä where you muster your forces and lead them to war and leave your mark in its chronicles. By tuning in every week you get to take in the rules, tactics, strategies and stories of Conquest in bite-sized pieces, leading up to a final escalation event!
The Path of Conquest has 6 Milestones. Each of them will help guide you into slowly forging a force from a single infantry mini to a Warlord’s mighty army, assembled, painted and thirsty for victory. Stay tuned!

Rewards Along The Path
The Path of Conquest can be challenging in the most rewarding way. Every gamer and hobbyist knows in their bones that building a new army and learning its quirks and secrets is in itself one of the most fun and rewarding things in the hobby but we mean more than that.
Badges will be awarded for participating and sharing the fruits of your labor with the community and in turn those badges will be translated into (bragging rights and…) rewards, some of them pretty unique.
Going through the program you will get the opportunity to participate in live events, painting showcases, playing games etc. Participating in these events will provide you with unique achievements! At the end of the Path of Conquest program one player per Faction with the most achievements unlocked will win a special, high-quality sculpt for that Faction from our new and upcoming Founders’ series!
Once you have finished collecting and painting your army, a “showcase” competition will take place. We will invite you to submit photos of your painted armies in an army painting competition judging on unique color schemes and themes. The winner will receive a Hardback Companion Rulebook signed by the entirety of the Para Bellum team, an army spotlight post/interview and a place in the Conquest lore for their mighty force!
Goodies are always nice. The know-how and tricks that will be shared will always be handy and the assembled and painted minis will stay with you to enjoy. But the true reason we wanted to do this and the true taking from this is to offer an opportunity; an opportunity to help the Conquest community do things together, even from afar, and to introduce it to the rest of the world, show them what a lively, creative, fun and welcoming bunch it is.
A Gaming Night to Last Months
We think of the Conquest community as a giant, ever growing gaming club, where “newbies” and “veterans” both are welcome. Our dream would be to invite all of you in one place, with tables enough for everyone to play, with displays for all your minis and with discussions firing up on every corner of this club. We could not find a hall big enough and while we cannot order pizzas all around, we did find some alternatives. Your screens will be the displays. OnTableTop will be our giant gaming table. And in that sense, the Path of Conquest is a months-long gaming night at the club.
Welcome to the Conquest community. Let’s play!
