Torn Armor is a fantasy skirmish miniature game based on the rich lore of "Torn." It features anthropomorphic creatures such as cat, mouse, monkey, and rhino-headed creatures in their desperate defense of their homeland against the Spartan-like "Sisk" invaders.

Each side is beautifully brought to life through 39 expertly crafted miniatures, ranging from the 20mm "Mu" (mice-men), through to the lumbering war golems that tower a spectacular 60mm on the game board.

Alyssa Faden had the good fortune to be born in England and therefore did all of the usual geeky things - live roleplay, Dungeons & Dragons, drawing fantasy places - while in the middle of real-world castles and ancient barrow mounds.

Not many are honored to have grown up in a city established by the Romans, with intact Roman walls and a Colosseum, but Alyssa was and she fully embraced it in every respect. Is it any wonder that she was the first to be playing Dungeons & Dragons in her school?

With a lust for the unknown and the magical country of "America," she emigrated in 1998 and has been spreading 'home country historical goodness' via the mediums of cartography and table-top games ever-since.

Alyssa has recently worked for Paizo, Gygax Magazine, Kobold Quarterly, Silver Gryphon Games, R.Scott Taylor, and Jon Brazer Enterprises.
