Defiance Games has a bug problem… well, not a problem… They’ve got bugs and want to share them with you, soon. Get your name on the list.

From the announcement:

The Defiance Team is very happy to announce the imminent availability of our second hard plastic 28mm figure set for ALIEN WAR – the Bugs!

Now that we’ve been through the “birthing pains” with the Marines and taken our lumps, we’re ready to pull the trigger on our second release (with the third one – the Germans – just a couple weeks behind!)

The Bugs are an important part of the ALIEN WAR setting – a constant companion and danger to humanity as it colonizes the stars – and a Core Force in the ALIEN WAR rules.

This first release for the Bugs Force are the Drones – the workers and warriors of the hives (although the much larger Warrior class will be with us later this summer).

Drones stand about 23-24mm tall (shorter than the humans they prey on) but come in vast numbers. Each box set features 30 Bugs with loads of extra parts for all sorts of nasty combinations!

Along with three great pre-release offers including 1, 4, and 10 (300 BUGS!) boxes – we are also giving every pre-order a special base set of 12 Bug Hive 30mm round bases.

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

    Seriously guys, before some of the venom and vitriol starts all over again, change the purchase page to say “THIS IS A PRE-ORDER” or something along those lines.

    You have this line: ADVANCE ORDERS SHIPPING WEEK OF JUNE 18TH (SOONER IF WE CAN)!
    which is fine, but doesn’t actually tell me that the order I’d be placing was an advance order. Also, that line is at the top of the decriptive text where it could easily be missed by someone who just looks at the pictures of shiny toys and the price/add to cart button. Stick a bit of red text in the picture that says “Advance Order Now” or something similar and then remove it after release day, it’ll just make life easier.

    Having worked in mail order and dealt with vast amounts of pre-order stuff myself, you really do have to make it obvious!

    That said, they look pretty good and I hope they do well.

    I have the marines, and they look sharp. I should start assembling them next week. Planning on pre-ordering the bugs as well.

  • Mine are ordered!

    Assembled Marines this evening and they look sharp, preordering.
