The previous announcement about the upcoming Fallout minis game was pretty bare-bones, just like a skeleton that you find out in the wastes. But it’s getting a bit fleshed out, with some more info about the game as well as some new renders of a couple of the figures.

From the announcement:

Modiphius Entertainment, publisher of the Star Trek Adventures, Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles, Conan, Infinity and John Carter of Mars roleplaying games, is thrilled to announce today that Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, the first tabletop miniatures game based on the Fallout universe, is currently in development and is set to release November 2017.

In Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, players will build their own crew from a wide range of factions, allies and iconic characters from the Fallout series, and play in apocalyptic games of 3 – 30 high quality 32mm scale resin miniatures through a huge variety of iconic scenery and settlement buildings, from the Red Rocket to Sanctuary Hills, Nuka- Cola vending machines and wrecked vehicles. Settlements will include buildings, defenses and resources that impact the crew’s army list and abilities in the wasteland.

Fallout: Wasteland Warfare will include an entire narrative campaign arc as well as unique random missions with narrative-style objectives, and Crew Caps recovered in missions can be used to improve the crew’s perks, weapons, gear, and upgrades for the next encounter. In either Player vs. Player, or Tournament mode, players will try to survive the tabletop wasteland.

The game will also come with a customizable solo-play AI deck to control enemies that play to their strengths and replicate a faction’s tactics while attempting a narrative mission or perfecting settlement-building strategy. Players can also team up with a friend to defend a larger settlement or explore narrative missions in cooperative games against AI forces or the post-apocalyptic dangers of the wasteland.

Organized Play packs will be available at launch to retail stores, organizers and gaming groups. Fallout: Wasteland Warfare will be available for pre-order in the summer.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    If the rules are based on Dystopian Legions 2.0 then they can’t be that bad, right? Right? I’m trying to be glass-half-full here.

      Haha, having never played Dystopian Legions, does that mean this is good or bad? I mean I’m uber excited for a game in this setting, but not if it’s garbage.

        The best part about gaming today is that as long as the minis look good, you can plug them into any number of other systems that suit you better if these rules suck.

          While true, getting gaming group acceptance is usually a lot easier if the game has solid rules on top of it. Especially since fallout has some awesome mechanics (like the hit percentage system) that I’d love to see translated onto the tabletop.

            No doubt. You have a far better chance of finding a regular player base if the original game and minis are worth playing. My point is just a viable plan B, but convincing others to play Fallout with your alternate or modded rule set is tricky.
