Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Dawn of Rebellion, a new sourcebook for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game line.

Dawn of Rebellion is the first sourcebook of its kind, designed to be used alongside any of the three core roleplaying lines. Campaigns using Edge of the EmpireAge of Rebellion, or Force and Destiny—or any combination of the same—will find a wealth of valuable information within its 144 pages. Primarily focusing on the years preceding the Battle of Yavin, Dawn of Rebellion features descriptions, context, and statistics for many of the iconic characters and vehicles appearing in the Star Wars: Rebels television show and in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The might of the Empire is at an unprecedented peak and a successful rebellion seems like a fever dream to all but the most optimistic. Even those who have no personal stake in the Galactic Civil War feel the tremendous impact of this new order.

Cryptozoic Announces Attack on Titan: The Last Stand

Cryptozoic Entertainment in partnership with Don’t Panic Games, announced the July 26 release of Attack on Titan: The Last Stand.

Based on the popular Attack on Titan anime series, this 2-5 player asymmetric board game puts one player in the role of a fearsome Titan, while the other players are brave Heroes trying to protect the Tower that guards the last human city. Designed by the award-winning Antoine Bauza and Ludovic Maublanc, the game requires strategic utilization of dice and features unique vertical gameplay, as the Heroes move up and down both the Tower and the 15-inch tall Titan Standee.

In Attack on Titan: The Last Stand, up to 4 players become Heroes, with choices including fan-favorite characters Eren, Mikasa, and Armin. Each Hero has a standee and a card with distinctive abilities that the player must utilize in order to take down the Titan. Teamwork is key to victory, as the Hero players need to work together to use Tactics Cards that have powerful effects. Players each roll five custom dice that let them move between the different Levels of the Titan and Tower, attack with Cannons or swords, and dodge devastating blows. Players can re-roll these dice as many times as they want, with one caveat: Every time they roll a Titan symbol, they lose that die.

The dice with the Titan symbol can be used by the Titan player, who can choose to be either a Basic, Destructive, Deviant, or Voracious Titan. During each round, the Titan’s first Action Card is placed face up, and the second one face down. Therefore, the Hero players know what the Titan intends to do with the first Action Card, and may try to thwart his plans by allocating the dice symbols shown on the card. But since the second Action Card is a complete mystery (and can be deadly), the Heroes may sometimes choose to suffer the effects of the first Action Card so they can keep their symbols for the hidden card.

If the Titan eats all 12 Citizens, destroys all six cannons, or crushes a Hero’s three hearts, humanity’s last stand fails and the Titan wins. Just like the anime, the Heroes can only win one way: They must kill the Titan by slashing his neck. With eight different Heroes and four Titans—each with a separate oversized card and deck—every game will be markedly different.

Attack on Titan: The Last Stand will be available at retailers nationwide July 26 for a suggested retail price of $40.

Khurasan Releases 15mm Purgators Minis

July 17, 2017

Khurasan have neglected the 15mm Little Carinthia Eldritch Horror range too long, but help is on the way — the Papal Purgator Battalions have arrived.

These include conventional weapons to strip away the damned human followers of the dark powers — rifles as well as heavier weapons — but the real demon fighting power is provided by the Exorcists, wielding the Flame of the Sacred Heart. To use the Flame, those fearless souls have to approach the demon … eye to eye. The Purgators all wear the pointed hood of the penitent — this prevents demons from seeing their faces and thus stealing their souls.

Available now.

Skirmisher Publishing Releases “100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest”

100-Oddities-e1499266634937

July 14, 2017

Welcome to “100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest,” the eighth entry in Skirmisher Publishing’s popular “Oddities” series!

This publication includes 100 unique things characters might encounter in a sylvan setting and includes guidelines for introducing the Wild Hunt into your game sessions or stories.

Your characters are traveling from one region to another, such as from the keep they call home to a distant ruin, a frontier outpost, a battlefield, or the like. Making their way through the forest that lies between their point of origin and destination can be a simple matter of a couple of nights camping out and an encounter with a wandering monster … or it could be so much more.

Oddities are intended to aid storyteller creativity, turning possibly bland areas or gaming episodes into something more, and the goal of this publication is to make things more fun and to take your imagination in directions it might not otherwise have gone. They fill in the corners of a bookshelf, a room, a level, a story or scenario, with all the sorts of things that add interest but take loads of time to come up with.

Brigade Models release 6mm Combat Cars

Combat-Cars-e1499443117205

July 14, 2017

Brigade Models have released two new vehicles for their 6mm Mercenary Brigade force, bringing the small-scale range into line with their 15mm counterparts.

The first is the Mantra Cavalry Vehicle. Based on the drive train of the Shaman tank, this is an open-topped fast recce vehicle which dispenses huge amounts of firepower from the three crew-served gatlings in the rear compartment. The gunners are protected from shrapnel by an overhead splinter screen. The Shinigami is the Mantra’s predecessor, essentially an extended jeep with two gatlings in the unprotected rear deck.

Both models are metal castings with separate guns. The Mantra’s splinter screen is an etched-brass piece – it just needs to be cut out of its frame and the legs bent downwards 90°, which then pop into position on the chassis with a drop of superglue. Both models are available individually or in a Recce Troop pack containing six of each model along with a pair of Wizard jeeps.

SF300-1506 – Mantra Cavalry Vehicle – £1.00
SF300-1510 – Shinigami Combat Car – £0.60
IC-1516 – Mercenary Scout Troop – £9.50
