Fantasy Flight Games previews Twilight Imperium Rex

Fantasy Flight Games previews some of the cards and background for their new game in the Twilight Imperium World, Rex.

From their website:

Rex, a board game of negotiation, betrayal, and warfare for three to six players, will begin bombarding tabletops this quarter. Set 3,000 years before the events of Twilight Imperium, Rex tells the tale of the war-ravaged Mecatol City following a surprise attack by ambitious and treacherous Sol forces.

In our last preview article, we looked at some of the core mechanics of Rex, and saw how its warring factions compete to claim influence in the wake of massive devastation. We also examined the unique abilities of the Lazax, the once-great former rulers of the galaxy, now desperately clinging to power while scrambling to mount a viable defense. We learned how the politically and militarily entrenched Lazax have greater access to resources than their rivals, a distinction exemplified by their special faction ability.

Finger and Toe Releases Eski Koy, 28mm Card Stock Neolithic Village

Finger and Toe announces the release of the 28mm card stock Early Neolithic Ceremonial Center and Village, Eski Koy:

From their website:

Eski Koy comes with three different circular, mud brick huts, pillars and wall segments to build a temple precinct, and statues of the Great Mother and Great Father. Based on real early Neolithic sites, Eski Koy doesn’t have to be limited to the Stone Age. Conquistadors can search for the lost cities of Cibola–but what treasure could be hidden in such poor huts? Victorians can probe lost valleys of southwest Asia, providing they can avoid capture by such primitive peoples. Han Dynasty scouts might even find Eski Koy behind a narrow canyon entrance somewhere along the Silk Road. You don’t have to limit your adventuring.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh Eski Koy, a new set waits your summons from hard drive and printer.
Eski Koy is available from www.rpgnow.com or www.wargamevault.com for $2.50.

Warlord Games Posts New Releases

Warlord Games post two new releases from their Hail Caeser line:

From their website:

Amongst the first re-releases of the metal range we acquired when we bought Immortal Miniatures are these nifty nCretan Archers. Deployed mostly as mercenaries, the Cretan archer is an iconic element of most Greek armies. Commonly deployed as mercenaries, Cretan archers are an iconic part of Greek armies. Despite their fame, almost nothing is known about their appearance or how they fought!

Xenophon mentions their shields (although we are not sure he is talking about the archers), we know they carried Scythian style compound bows. Later depictions in art show a head band, dagger or short sword and a small pouch carried on the chest (maybe for bow strings, thumb rings or other archery equipment).

Relics rulebook now available on Wargames Vault

Tor Gaming releases the Relics Rulebook on Wargames Vault.

From their announcement:

We have been thinking about how to handle the Relics rulebook and force lists. With the addition of the Nuem list we have had to look at what we have and if we really want to continue down the route of a single book with full lists in.

We don’t plan on stopping at four factions by the way (I’m actually writing profiles for faction 5 right now, and making notes for faction 6 to be written up as profiles once faction 5 is done) so having them all in a single book seems wrong to me.

We have asked for feedback on some options on our forum and social media. Thanks for all the thoughts posted about this by all your guys out there, I truly do appreciate your input.

Warlord Games Posts New Releases

Warlord Games post new releases from their Bot Action and Hail Caeser lines:

From their website:

The Red Army sees the welcome return of not one but three tank destroyers this week – the Su-85, Su-100 and Su-122M. These armoured fighting vehicles have been heavily remastered and have loads more detail than the previous incarnations. The SU-85 self-propelled gun based itself on the proven T34 chassis which had stood the Red Army in good stead against their German counterparts. As with other ‘SUs’, the SU-85s name came from the Russian for ’self-propelled carriage’ (Samokhodnaya Ustanovka) and the bore of the gun – in this case the high velocity 85 mm D-5T anti-tank gun. With the all-important low profile of a tank hunter it also had good mobility but at the expense of lighter armour. Entering active service in autumn 1943 the SU-85 would be found in all self-propelled regiments and brigades.
