Cabinet Entertainment, along with Modiphious are rebooting one of the most awesome techno-fantasy miniatures boardgames of all time, Siege of the Citadel.
First seen in the 1990s this new edition is bringing together an A-List design team who are updating and balancing not only the rules, but also the new miniatures and tiles.
Richard Borg was the lead designer on the 1st Edition of Siege of the Citadel, now he’s joined by a hit squad of Kevin Wilson (Descent, Arkham Horror, Android), Eric Lang (The Others, Blood Rage, Acradia Quest, Warhammer 40,000: Conquest) and Jay Little (X-Wing Miniatures, Star Wars RPG, Blood Bowl Team Manager) to bring this new edition growling to life!
Originally published by Pressman Toys in the 1990s, Siege of the Citadel was one of the first games of its kind to offer many unique elements, including innovative features such as co-operative play, character development and the rotation of the Dark Legion player. Conceived by Sweden’s gaming powerhouse Target Games, Siege of the Citadel had television advertising in the US and hundreds of gamers still own much loved copies across the world.
Siege of the Citadel is set in the universe of Mutant Chronicles, created by Target Games, one of the bigger names in gaming in the 1990’s. Target released the DoomTrooper collectible card game and translated it into 16 languages, three boardgames, a SNES and Mega Drive DoomTrooper video game, Comic Book miniseries and graphic novel from Acclaim Comics, the massive Warzone miniatures game, the Mutant Chronicles 1st and 2nd Edition roleplaying games, a Hollywood movie, Fantasy Flight Games’ pre-painted miniature game plus – of course – the rebooted Warzone miniatures game and 3rd edition roleplaying game.
The Mutant Chronicles story took you on this full throttle dieselpunk sci-fi ride through a solar system beset by corporate intrigue and the invasion of a terrible dark alien force. With technology failing due to the insidious effects of the Dark Symmetry humankind must fight back against the Dark Legion hordes whilst dealing with in-fighting and conspiracy from within.

Modiphious have announced a major cross-over supplement with Monolith, producers of the massive Conan Board Game for their Conan RPG Kickstarter (5 days to go!) which is now available as a £15 Add On.
As it has been Unlocked, they are including it in PDF in all pledges with ‘all the unlocked books in PDF’ and the Hoard’, Secrets and Treasure’s pledges all now get it in print!
The Conan Board Game Sourcebook for Robert E. Howard’s Conan Roleplaying Game will feature a major storyline set along the Black Coast as Conan and Belit are faced with their greatest challenge yet. The adventure will incorporate brand new board game scenarios for fans of the Conan board game as well as a full RPG adventure and bonus content. The adventure and scenarios are being cunningly entwined so you can play them as one big epic adventure – the scenarios will describe the progress of Conan, Belit and the crew of the Tigress, whilst the heroes will be following their own linked adventure, or can alternatively use the provided pre-generated characters of Conan and Belit etc for the roleplaying game.
