Age of Tyrants


New 2-Player Starters And Add-Ons Added To Age of Tyrants Kickstarter

2-player starters. They're arguably one of the best ways to get a new player into a game, even more than single-army starter sets. I started my career in minis gaming with a 2-player starter, just like probably millions of you out there. Well, Age of Tyrants has added pledge levels that offer 2-player starter set options for their Kickstarter campaign.

Sunday Snippets

Ah, Sunday.
For me, at least, the relaxing day of the week. Sure, there's chores to do like laundry and cooking for the week, but overall, it's a day to just relax a bit. Also, I'm told there's some major sporting event-thing going on today. Ok, I know it's the Super Bowl. But I'm more of a "hockey" guy than a "football" guy. But hey, if you are going to watch the Super Bowl, nothing goes better than a bunch of bite-sized snacks.

Speaking of bite-sized, here's some bite-size stories to munch on.

Today we have: ADAPT Card Game Reaches Funding Goal, Nightmare Forest: Dead Run Reaches Funding Goal, New Old West Releases From Knuckleduster, Battle Arena Show Reaches Funding Goal, New Statuesque Asylum character and TWO new sizes of female head sprues, New Warsenal Limited Edition Unit Markers for Infinity The Game Released, New Video Preview for Polyversal 6mm SciFi Game, The Rhinotaur Added to Circle of Chaos Kickstarter, Age of Tyrants announces how to play videos, The Dryden Heavy Destroyer Miniature is Now Available, and Mountain Miniatures preview pics for End of Times Kickstarter.

Today we have: Age of Tyrants Funds, Khurasan releases 1980s Motor Rifles support weapons, Another World Miniatures Releases Selene Redux Mini, Hero Lab Launches D&D 5th Edition SRD, and Polyversal Kickstarter now EU Friendly.

Age of Tyrants Sci-Fi Minis Game Launches On Kickstarter

It's been my general notice that the smaller the miniature in question, the larger scale battle that the figures are used to fight out. So while you could play with a small skirmish force consisting of 6mm models, it seems like that's just not what most people are wanting to do. They want those huge battles with massive armies of tanks and infantry and artillery and all that fun kind of stuff (I remember watching games of Epic 40k played on 8'x8' tables in order to accommodate all the figures). Well, if that's what you want, then Age of Tyrants is for you. The new sci-fi miniatures game is up on Kickstarter now.

Age of Tyrants posts up new 3D renders

Age of Tyrants has been busy posting up some 3D renders of upcoming trooper models for their minis game.



From the preview:

Age of Tyrants is our new 6mm sci-fi game system due for launch in April 2013.

In 2769 VSY, the Strike on Kalakan unleashed a spiralling maelstrom of war that threatened to engulf all of Pan-Humanic space. Breakaway systems plunged old alliances and treaties into disarray as battle lines were drawn up around them, and the powerful members of the Tripartite Alliance; the Viridians, Syntha, and the Junkers, ultimately moved openly against one another , forcing the galactic security body VASA to enter the fray on its own terms. This period became known as the Age of Tyrants.

Age of Tyrants is a 6mm tabletop wargame set in the hard sci-fi world of Urban War: Metropolis. It is a scalable mass combat system enabling you tabletop generals to fight battles ranging from skirmishes between platoons right up to battalion level offensives and features a unique unit activation system inspired by the doctrine of combined arms warfare.
