Sci-fi


Let's face it, very little in the 40k universe would ever be considered "wholesome," but the Eightfold Harvest Lord goes even beyond the regular grit and grime of the setting. He's a bounty hunter who delights in slicing up his victims with his twin chain blades, before adding something of his target to his trophy rack. If you're wanting to add this maniac to your Necromunda gang,  you can get your name on the list and order him from Forge World now.

The Kaminoans created a massive clone army for the Republic to use. But just because they made one clones doesn't mean that all the copies were going to be the same forever. As they went along, they refined their process and the training that the clones would receive, resulting in the Phase II trooper, of which we get a preview here before they make their way to Star Wars: Legion tabletops.

Catalyst Game Labs had been mostly silent since last year, but they're getting into 2020 with some new Shadowrun products for you. If you've been wanting to check out the game, there's an updated core rulebook pdf. But there's also a GM screen and the Cutting Black book you can pick up if you're well on your way into the game.

The folks over at TTCombat have a host of new Dropfleet Commander ships available now. And these are some pretty big ones (in a world of big ships already). The Resistance is going to be able to resist a lot more convincingly when these ships start taking flight. Get your name on the list and be the first gamer on your block when these figures are released at the end of the month.

Using the Deck of Many Worlds, GMs can quickly and easily create their own planets for use in Starfinder games. Now, Paizo is looking to see what you are coming up with. They've got a contest going where GMs can create a design for a world and possibly have it written up officially by the Starfinder team. Will your world get chosen?

Last week, Games Workshop started taking orders for new Sisters of Battle releases. This week, they continue that trend with even more units for the faction. But that's not all. They've also got the new Psychic Awakening: Ritual of the Damned book and a new Dark Angels character for you to pick up. Head on over and check it out.

The Blood Angels are the vampires of the Space Marine legions. But it's not all ripping apart throats. They do use ranged weapons too. In this instance, grenade launchers and volkite serpentas. These new units can be ordered now from Forge World to help flesh out your armies.

It's not just a brand of whiskey. Fireball is the name of a starship in the Star Wars universe. Primarily created as a racing ship, it's been fitted with some weapons to make it a fighter (Spike would be proud). Soon, it'll be racing its way onto tabletops in X-Wing from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at just what you can expect from this "explosion with wings."

It's the middle of the week already. This one's been going by quickly, as did last week. Though, this time around, I can't blame being zonked out on cough syrup as to why chunks of time seem to just disappear. I'm continuing to feel better. Still have tissues here for the occasional stuffy nose, but I hope to be 100% over this by tomorrow or Friday. Definitely by the weekend wherein I'll be... ... umm... not really doing much. Ah well, I can still snack on some bite-sized gaming stories as I work my way there.

Today on the platter we have: Animal STL Files For RPGs up on Kickstarter, Masters Volume 1 Printable Sci-Fi Minis Up On Kickstarte, and Dragon Scale Dice Up On Kickstarter.

With the Double Trouble expansion coming soon for Aristeia, there's not just two new combatants that are going to be entering the arena, but a whole new set of Tactics Cards that players will have to get to know (and possibly watch out for). In this preview, Corvus Belli has posted up said Tactics Cards so you can study up before the set hits shelves.

Note: the English cards are after the Spanish ones in the gallery.

Convention season is damn-near upon us. Adepticon is rapidly approaching, and with it, the start of a season that nowadays basically runs pretty much all year. And with the launch of the season, Fantasy Flight is celebrating with a special edition Royal Naboo Fighter for X-Wing, including an alternate paint job and alternate card art for one of the pilots. But don't worry. Even if you're not up in Chicago, you can still get this figure.

February is the month of love. And Corvus Belli is making you their Valentine with a new batch of Infinity releases. They're not keeping you in suspence with what's coming. They want you to know just what's in store, including some new figures specifically for the RPG. Let's take a look.

"I'll just wait until the new Sisters of Battle come out." It seems to be a phrase I've remembered hearing from my friends in the gaming community forever. Maybe it's just me, but it almost became a cliche. Well, for all those people that've been saying it, Games Workshop is doing something about it. They've started taking orders for brand new Sisters of Battle Codex and sets over in their webshop.

The Gamma Quadrant. Home of the Dominion. Not exactly the nicest place in the galaxy, if we're being honest. But that's just why the Federation is sending you in. What will you find as you boldly go into this new region of space? You're not entirely sure, but you've been given a primer in the form of the Star Trek Adventures: Gamma Quadrant Sourcebook. Better read up and know it inside and out. You do wear a red shirt, after all...

Incomiiiiiiiiiing! *boom! boom! boom!*

That's what your enemies will be shouting when you roll up to their fortifications with your new Arquitor Pattern Bombard. It's the latest vehicle available to order from Forge World for your 40k armies. Reach out. Reach out and touch someone with high explosives by putting your name down on the list to get this figure when it's released next week.

A new wave of X-Wing ships are on the horizon. For those looking to add to your squadrons, you can get a quick peek at the Xi-Class Shuttle, LAAT Gunship and HMR Droid Gunship. How will you be putting these new ships to use when they arrive?

Free League Publishing is adding to their game library. They've got Tales From the Loop. They've got the official Alien RPG. Now, they've picked up Coriolis from Paradox Interactive. What does this mean for the future of the award-winning game? We'll just have to see.

Get ready for trouble! And prepare to make it double!

Two new contenders are stepping into the Aristeia arena. They're Moonchild and Lei Gong and they'll bring a wealth of new options for when you're building your team for the game. In this preview, we get a look at their sculpts as well as their cards, so you can know jus what these new contestants will be bringing to the field.

Sometimes, a pilot comes along that redefines what it is to fly a certain type of craft. It could be said for Wedge and the X-Wing. It was definitely said for Baron Soontir Fel and the TIE Interceptor. It's also said about Major Vonreg and the First Order's upgrade of the TIE Interceptor. Soon, he'll be joining your squadrons in X-Wing. In this preview, we get a look at just what he's capable of.

You've possibly played KeyForge, Fantasy Flight's game where every deck in existence is different from every other. It's quite a wild world that the game takes place in. If you've enjoyed it and wish there was more ways to interact with it, you're in luck. Fantasy Flight has announced the KeyForge sourcebook for their Genesys RPG system.

It'd be cool to take a tour of the galaxy in a huge fleet of starships. You get to see what's out there and really explore the universe. However, if you're out there because civilization has been overrun and you're fleeing a force looking to eradicae mankind, that'd put a damper on things. However, that's exactly where you find yourself in Last Fleet, a new sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

When you're the GM, you're responsible for everything in the game that isn't the PCs. That can be a lot of work. When you're playing Starfinder, that means you're in charge of an entire universe. And when those PCs go planet-hopping, it can be difficult to come up with an entirely unique world at the drop of a hat. That's where the Deck of Many Worlds comes in. It's designed for GMs to create worlds with just a quick card shuffle. Have yourselves a look.

The Hotshots and Aces expansion for X-Wing will add a whole bunch of pilots to the roster when you're building your squadrons. It's an expansion for everyone, including new cards for every faction. In this preview, we get a look at some of the Imperial, New Order, and Scum & Villainy pilots that are coming in the set. Want to know who's going to be hopping into the cockpit? Take a look for yourself.

They say that hindsight is 20/20. Well, at the moment, forward sight is 2020. Corvus Belli is looking ahead with crystal clarity at what they'll be working on for the next year.
