Brigade Models Release New EuroFed Spaceships

ReleaseWave1

May 28th, 2017

Brigade Models release their new European Federation spaceship models, replacing the old versions.

There are seven all-new digitally-sculpted ships along with two fighter types. Most of the models retain a similar outline to their predecessors, but are much changed in detail. The two largest vessels, the Milano and Umberto, have resin hulls while the rest are metal castings.

The remainder of the ships will be replaced with new versions in one or two further waves later this year, when we also hope to add one or two new classes as well. The other two fleet packs (401 and 403) will return when we have the ships to fill them again.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Kerberos has also been made available again. This model is a one-piece resin spacestation. In its basic form it is unarmed, but there are plenty of places to position turrets from one of our accessory packs (such as the new EuroFed triple turrets) should you wish to give it a defence capability.

FFG Announce Crimson Dust, the Final Data Pack for Red Sand Cycle in Android: Netrunner

May 17th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Crimson Dust, the final data pack in the Red Sand cycle for Android: Netrunner!

Corporations and Runners. Colonists and Clans. The Martian Colonial Authority and The Free Mars Movement—there are a lot of intersecting interests on Mars, and even more that conflict with each other.

And then there’s the Crimson Dust. The Crimson Dust teaches that human life originated on Mars before colonizing Earth. Its members believe that their leader, Vasanti Smith, is the reincarnation of one of the first settlers on Mars. They believe in Martian independence, and they believe in augmenting human bodies with g-mods and cybernetics that allow them to endure the Red Planet’s atmosphere. They also believe that would-be martyrs armed with Taejo monofilament wire bombs can sneak past the security in most nodes and inflict tremendous amounts of damage on their protective domes.

Unfortunately, they’re right about that last one.

The first five data packs in the Red Sand cycle explored the forces that are vying for control of Mars, what they hope to gain from the Red Planet, and how far they’ll go to get it. The sixty new cards (three copies each of twenty different cards) in Crimson Dust look at the consequences of this enduring conflict, which has taken lives, destroyed homes, and left an entire world vulnerable to extremists.

Disturbances in the Force: New Villain and Ally Packs Coming for Imperial Assault

May 10th, 2017

Three powerful Force users… and not a single Jedi among them.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of two new Villain Packs and one new Ally Pack for Imperial Assault!

  • Maul Villain Pack
  • Emperor Palpatine Villain Pack
  • Ahsoka Tano Ally Pack

In the city where the Jedi Council once sat high enough above ground level to soak up the sun’s fading light, there are no more Jedi. The galaxy’s former self-appointed guardians have been swept aside by Order 66, and Emperor Palpatine has established an order of Inquisitors to hunt down and destroy any who still remain. Even those who simply demonstrated a sensitivity to the Force were at risk of being targeted, and many were captured and sent to a secret installation on planet Arkanis as part of Project Harvester.

As a result, the Jedi have all but ceased to exist, and they have faded even in the minds of the galaxy’s citizens, many of whom now view the Force as some “hokey religion.” But there are still some who can feel the Force and draw upon its strength. Some still seek to use its power to defend themselves and those around them. Others choose to wield the Force like a weapon that they can direct at their enemies. And when there are rumors leading toward an artifact that may enhance these individuals’ abilities to use the Force, you’ll find three of the most powerful of them ready to chase after those leads among the streets of Coruscant.

Together, these Ally and Villain Packs introduce three highly detailed figures for Maul, Emperor Palpatine, and Ahsoka Tano that you can use to replace their tokens in your Heart of the Empire campaign. Plus, they introduce brand-new missions for your campaign games and skirmishes, plus all the Deployment cards, Command cards, and Agenda cards you need to explore new Force-centered tactics in every mode of play.

May 8th, 2017

Outer Limit Games launches their 2nd title, Tradewars – Homeworld: Exterra Edition, a 1-4 player deck-building space combat game involving asymmetric powers and resource management. Each player represents one of the remaining four Terran factions (mega-corporations) in the galaxy, who compete to increase their faction’s wealth and defend their homeworlds.

The game’s core is built around a refreshing approach to the deck-building mechanic, where each player selects 1 of 10 different roles during their turn, which adds more depth, strategy, and meaningful decision-making to the game.

At the beginning of each game, 1 of 3 Scenarios are chosen, which determine the victory conditions of each game: Tradewars, Spacewars, and The Derelict!

The core game is going for $29, and the premium edition is going for $39, which adds custom dice and the Planetary Expansion, which includes an additional 140 cards. Shipping is free to the US, CA, DE, and UK.

Imperial Assault: Heart of the Empire Expansion Coming Soon!

Coruscant, capital of the galaxy. This globe-spanning metropolis is the home of Emperor Palpatine and countless other beings. It is also the home of countless mysteries, including the location of an ancient artifact of incredible importance…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Heart of the Empire, a new expansion for Imperial Assault!

Adventure among the awesome Coruscant cityscape, and face its myriad dangers. Only the bravest rebels dare to operate here, but when it becomes vital to locate an ancient artifact before the Emperor can claim it as his own, you’ll set forth on a new, highly replayable campaign of sixteen missions that explore every level of the world, from its glistening halls of power to its grimy underworld alleys.

You’ll find three new heroes ready to join the Rebellion, aided by the talented Force user Ahsoka Tano. You’ll maneuver through the crowded city, pursued and confronted by Imperials at every turn. And you’ll find the Emperor isn’t the only major player working against you. The former Sith, Maul, has sent a Clawdite Shapeshifter to pursue the artifact, and any face in the crowd might hide the Shapeshifter’s true identity.

Altogether, Heart of the Empire expands your campaign and skirmish games with three heroes and thirteen other figures, including the massive AT-DP, baton-wielding Riot Troopers, and twin-gunned Sentry Droids. Coruscant comes to life with dozens of new map tiles and more than 130 cards. New energy shield and rubble tokens will throw a wrench in your opponent’s plans by modifying the battlefield, and new power tokens give you more control over your fate than ever before!
