Wyrd Previews Royal Rifle Corps for The Other Side

Jan 19, 2018

Wyrd Miniatures previews the Royal Rifle Corps for their 32mm Minis Game The Other Side.

The most elite infantry unit in the King’s forces is the Royal Rifle Corps. The average soldier only has a few paths that lead to joining the Rifle Corps (but the most common is a tour in the Grenadiers). Armed with the best weapons money can buy, these troops drill endlessly to ensure that they are prepared for anything the enemy might throw at them. The CLLE Rifle is one of the longest range mass-produced firearms on Earth, and the sound of a squad of Royal Rifles firing on a position can put fear into even the most stalwart defenders. When they are not on the battlefield or drilling, the Corps are often asked to take part in parades and other morale building exercises on behalf of the King.

On the tabletop, the Royal Rifle Corps are a longranged, high accuracy, high damage unit. While a Commander pays for the privilege of their presence, the Corps rarely disappoint. Solid defense, Armor, and Actions ensure that the Royal Rifle Corps are a valuable (if expensive) addition to any Company.

The Other Side is an upcoming game about allegiances doing battle across the Earth in a fight for supremacy and survival. Using 32mm miniatures, players will control squads of troops and massive titans as they attempt to defeat their foes and seize control of Earth.. Conflict is resolved through the use of a deck of cards, allowing players more control over their own destinies. The Other Side shares a world with Malifaux, but the games are not compatible.

Wyrd Miniatures launches Kickstarter for Jetpack Unicorn, their new party game

July 5th, 2013

Wyrd Miniatures has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund Jetpack Unicorn, their new party game.

Once upon a time, YouTube vloggers Kristina Horner and Joe Homes decided to collaborate by making videos asking each other to choose between the weirdest hypothetical situations we could come up with, in the fashion of standard either-or storytelling. They went online to find some inspiration, and, shockingly, were met with an alarmingly large amount of terrible and bland questions. They took it upon themselves to craft much more interesting and intelligent questions, and had so much fun doing so that they decided they had to find a way to share them with the world. Already being game enthusiasts, it seemed only natural to try to turn this pastime into a party game.
