Warlord Games has started taking pre-orders for starter sets for the upcoming Terminator Genisys miniatures skirmish game. The game pits the stalwart defenders of the last of humanity against the incessant Terminators. The starter box has everything you need to get started, with a special Kyle Reese metal mini, 10 Terminator Endoskeletons, 5 Terminator Crawlers, and 16 Resistance Soldiers, plus all the tokens, templates, and dice you need to get going. The rules are designed by Alessio Cavatore, creator of Bolt Action’s rules. You can see an article featuring Alessio talking about his design process for Genisys in the upcoming issue of Ravage Magazine US.
Warlord will start shipping out the starter sets in early June.
