New Freebooter Miniatures Releases for September posted online

Freebooter Miniatures is showing off the latest releases for Freebooter’s Fate over on their website.
Yarr, matey!

From the release:

Ahoy there,
September is “mercenary month” so that everybody can get their share of the new loot:

The rules for Crazy Perez were designed by Christine Leonhardt and Gregor Lengsfeld. This crazy lass goes wherever she wants, which may occasionally upset the player supposedly controlling her, but she does carry a bomb and packs a hefty punch in close combat. She will fight for any crew (“Bombs for everyone!”).

Theresa is sort of the good witch of Freebooter’s Fate. She can invoke benevolent loas and will fight for any crew except for the Cult. She will also stay well clear of any Cazadores of the Imperial Armada – for obvious reasons. With her help, every crew can now use the new loa invocation rules. Did we mention that this nice old^H^H^H, I mean: mature lady also comes with a one-shot gun at a very reasonable rate?

Both characters are available now!

    I’ve played this game and loved it, but I haven’t bought into it yet, and probably won’t because of the way the rules work. You can only use official models as the rules for using each figure are in the blister pack/box on a character card. Means you can’t proxy, or try out a new faction/model before buying, as you don’t know what the rules are. If you can’t find a demo game you are faced with dropping money for rulebook, deck of cards, and 2 starter boxes to the tune of ~£100 total just to see how the game plays. Real shame and surely hurting its popularity

      Glad to hear you loved the game. I don’t know where you played it but you might not be aware of what you get with the various products and what you need to play, so please allow me to elaborate. The starter boxes actually contain a set of quickstarter rules which allow you to get the basic feel of the game, definitely a feel for the heart of it (i.e. the card-based bluffing combat). Any special rules are on the cards which come with the miniatures in the box. Or you could go with option B and just get the rulebook for starters because all miniatures, including any special rules as well as pictures of their cards, are actually in the rulebooks – with the exception of limited edition miniatures. So even though Werner would, of course, be happiest if you started the game by going for the whole hog, you have all the info you need for your first game(s) with just the basic rulebook, really. Yes, you are still going to need the deck of cards, but that is not going to be an expensive purchase.
