Classic turn-based tactics artillery game, Hogs of War, is ready to make a comeback in the form of a tabletop title. ‘Hogs Of War The Miniatures Game’ is an upcoming Kickstarter project which will be seeking a cash injection from nostalgic fans of the video games, and it’s looking good so far!
Coming from project creator Stone Sword Games, Hogs Of War The Miniatures Game will be a cooperative tabletop based on the Hogs of War IP, which first saw a video game release back in 2000.
The Kickstarter details are a little thin on the ground right now, with the site not going live for funding until September, still, we have some knowledge of what’s looking to be created.
The game’s description reads as follows: “Hogs Of War The Miniatures Game. 1 to 4 Player cooperative miniature wargame, ‘Warhammer-lite’ with X-Wing vibes.”
Hogs Of War The Miniatures Game will “include 48 of beautiful sculpts, representing Hogs as they take the fight to the enemy!”
At the time of writing, there’s close to 400 people waiting to be notified of the Kickstarter going live, which suggests this is a project that won’t struggle to meet its funding goal.

If you’re not familiar with the Hogs of War video game, it’s since migrated from the PlayStation 1 to PC, and it’s now available to play via Steam.
The game’s official description reads as follows: “An untapped supply of swill has just been discovered on the uninhabited archipelago of Saustralasia deep in the South Pigsific Ocean, and every Hog Nation wants the land as its own. Gone are the days of scratching around for drips of swill. Saustralasia’s 25 regions are drenched in the stuff, and the only way to ensure that no one else gets their filthy trotters on the delicious swill is WAR!”
