The struggle against the Empire is just beginning. Throughout the galaxy, resistance groups have begun to join together into a Rebel Alliance. The Outer Rim planet of Lothal is under the watchful eyes of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who monitors the planet for Rebel activity, looking to crush it beneath the Empire’s heel. The Lothal Resistance has arisen to fight back against this tyrannical oppression, and now it’s your turn to answer the call!

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Tyrants of Lothal, a new expansion for Imperial Assault, available for pre-order now from your local retailer! Tyrants of Lothal is not releasing alone either, so be sure to also pre-order the Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus Ally Pack, the Sabine Wren and Zeb Orrelios Ally Pack, the Thrawn Villain Pack, and the Hondo Ohnaka Villain Pack to upgrade your Imperial Assault experience!

April 12, 2018

Ares Games will publish and distribute worldwide a starship combat miniature game based on the Battlestar Galactica™ TV series, including both the “Classical” and “Reimagined” settings.

Created by the same designers of the popular “Wings of Glory” and “Sails of Glory” game systems (Andrea Angiolino and Andrea Mainini), the Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles game will be first presented to the public at Gen Con 2018 (August 2-5, Indianapolis). Release date has not been announced yet.

Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles will feature ready to play, painted and assembled miniatures, with a special base to support its unique game mechanics. Players will take control of one or more Colonial and Cylon ships, and face each other in furious dogfights and many other different kinds of missions.

The game will feature innovative mechanics allowing players to simulate space combat using simple and intuitive rules to imitate the unique dynamics of the battles in the TV show.

The “Battlestar Galactica” license agreement with Universal Brand Development includes both the classic series, created by Glen A. Larson in the late ‘70s, and the re-imagined series developed by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick which aired until 2010.

Kartoffelkrieg: Potato Wars Live on Kickstarter!

Box Cover 3d Final Version

April 5, 2018

Corey Wright and his Corvallis, Oregon game publishing company, Massif Games, launched a crowd-funding campaign for “Kartoffelkrieg” on Kickstarter. They are seeking to raise $19,000
USD for a game that uses real potatoes and miniature parts to simulate mechanized potato combat!

Kartoffelkrieg is a crazy looking 3-4 player game invented by Michael Craughwell, better know as Michaelcthulhu, a YouTuber who makes giant custom swords and hammers! During the game, players assume the roles of giant weaponized potatoes, and maneuver around the table, attacking and hiding from their components, while seeking to get “hit” points from destroying parts.

Game Mechanisms include take that, dice rolling, variable player powers, and other elements that make it much like a gateway, family-friendly war game!

Massif Games will use the money raised to pay for manufacturing, freight, and fulfillment costs, and hope to expand their operations to have a positive influence on the local economy.

Falconers Guild Available to PreOrder for Guild Ball

Falconers-Box

Mar 31, 2018

The Falconers Guild are now available for Preorder from Steamforged Games for your Guild Ball pitch. Begin the nocturnal hunt – this set includes a ball, 6 player cards, bases, 3D terrain piece, goalpost and 6 players: Devana, Frelsi, Mataagi, Rundaas, Minerva, Ikaros.

The Falconers are a damn mystery to everyone, between the rumours surrounding their origins and their enigmatic ties to the Hunters. One things for sure, though – the Falconer’s Guild represent an unwelcome wildcard for the Guilds; their sudden appearance an omen the feral Hunters are on the rise once more…

—Lucky, Free Agent

Leader of her flock, the Daughter of Falcons directs her team with merciless efficiency, isolating her prey methodically before the skies darken and death plummets from above. On the rare occasion her victim might escape their fate, it is only because Devana has instead chosen to steal the ball, directing it away to her teammates and safety.

The ruthless stare of their eyes akin to the flash of cold steel, the Falconer’s Guild relentlessly stalk their prey, harrying their foes from afar before ruthlessly closing in for the kill. Nowhere on the pitch can be truly safe from a fate borne upon the wings of the great birds, command of the skies affording the Falconers a tactical breadth previously unknown to the Empire of the Free Cities.

The Falconer’s Guild focusses on dealing heavy amounts of damage both at range and in melee, a different spin on the ‘hit and run’ playstyle of the Hunters.

Many of the Falconer players focus on placing deadly Harrier effects on the pitch, enemies within a Harrier effect become distracted and injured by swarms of birds of prey, causing them to suffer even more damage.

The Falconer’s Guild are an ideal team for any Coach that enjoys a methodical and slightly tricksy playstyle, backed up by a capacity to deal raw damage to the opposition.

Mar 30, 2018

For sixty million years the Necrons have slumbered, their tomb worlds filled with dormant armies and inactive war machines. Now they are awakening as if from half-remembered nightmares, and the galaxy shudders at their return. From vast crypt-fortresses, burnished legions emerge into the dying light of the 41st Millennium, a steel sea rippling beneath the crackling energy discharge of esoteric battle engines. Swarming metal Scarabs, talon-limbed horrors and spectral assassins accompany them, their alien minds focused on a single purpose – to reclaim the stars.

Codex: Necrons contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Necrons collectors. Within this 120-page hardback, you’ll find:

– In the Beginning: the origin of the Necrons, from the Necrontyr race of flesh and blood that existed billions of years ago, their bitter civil war, the pact with the C’tan which doomed them to immortality and the order which set them to their Great Sleep;
– The Great Awakening: the manner in which the tomb worlds are awakening into the 41st Millennium – some early, some late, others not at all – and the Necrons’ first, violent actions upon rousing;
– The Necron Dynasties: descriptions of the complex, rigid hierarchies of the Necrons, with details and icons of the following 8 dynasties: Sautekh, Charnovokh, Nephrekh, Thokt, Mephrit, Novoth, Ogdobekh, and Nihilakh;
– A galactic map featuring both active and (currently) dormant tomb worlds, crown worlds and dynastic territories;
– Domains of the Phaerons: organisation of the tomb worlds, and the manner in which the Necrons wage war;
– Dynastic Markings: illustrated examples of how Necrons use markings on their soldiers, including hieroglyphs used on war machines. Includes colour schemes and background for the following 9 dynasties: Sautekh, Mephrit, Nephrekh, Nihilakh, Novokh, Thokt, Charnovokh, Nekthyst, and Ogbobekh;
– A New Epoch Begins: a timeline of significant events and battles in Necron history during the 41st Millennium;
– Background on each unit available to a Necrons army;
– A showcase of beautifully painted Citadel miniatures, with example armies featuring everything from individual images of models to battle scenes on terrain.

– 27 unique Stratagems, including 5 specific to the following dynasties: Sautekh, Mephrit, Novokh, Nihilakh, and Nephrekh;
– Powers of the C’tan: a choice of 6 powers that can be used for each C’tan Shard unit in your army, generated before battle;
– Artefacts of the Aeons: 13 weapons and artefacts available only to Necrons;
– 6 unique Warlord Traits for the Necrons, with 5 additional Warlord Traits, one specific to each of the following dynasties: Sautekh, Mephrit, Novokh, Nihilakh, and Nephrekh;
