Relic


A classic game in a new form. Relic, the epic sci-fi adventure around the Antian Sector, is now available from WizKids. What's different about the WizKids version? The busts for the figures have been improved. There's also upgraded punchboard and scenario cards. Want to get something a little extra? There's the Deluxe version where the busts are pre-painted for your convenience. You can get your copy now.

There's been a lot of talk lately about Games Workshop's board game properties and the various companies who are making said games. USAOpoly is going to be making Talisman. Well, now we know that WizKids is going to be making Relic.

Terra. Earth. The cradle of humanity. In the grimdark future, the entire Sol system is considered rather holy and trying to get onto Terra, itself, is quite a task, fraught with many dangers. Halls of Terra for Relic lets players make that journey in order to gain power and influence to help with Antian sector hijinks. A lot of the battles being fought around Sol are not the same as fighting rampaging Orcs or Tyranids, but they can be just as deadly.
