Sci-fi


It's a Star Wars fest over at Fantasy Flight. The new Clone Wars box set for Star Wars: Legion is now available, ushering in a new era to the tabletop miniatures game. The starter and two ancillary sets are available. Also for Legion is the new Upgrade Cards pack, along with several battle mats. That's not enough? There's a new Outer Rim game mat as well, plus a new card pack for the Star Wars RPG. I told you there was a lot.

Judge Dredd is soon to be bringing justice to the streets of Mega City One. He's got his helmet. He's got his sidearm. He's got his motorcycle. All that's left are some gangs to fight. And you can pick up all of that now from Warlord Games. They're taking orders for the new Judge Dredd Miniatures Game rulebook, starter set, as well as having put together some mega-bundle deals for the game's launch. Have a look.

Two venerable chapters of the Space Marines are gettting Codex updates this week from Games Workshop. I remember back when these two were just alternate paint schemes, but they've had many updates since then, coming into their own with full support. If you're wanting to get some new Imperial Fists or Salamanders, this is an update you'll be excited about.

But even if you don't play those chapters, there's a new unit and vehicle to add to your Marine forces.

The folks over at One Page Rules are doing a total overhaul of their games. They've got multiple waves of patches coming out, with the first one recently rolled out. What's in this one? Oh, just updated rules for 12 armies and 20 factions. That's all. You know, just a little bit of stuff. (they've been busy over there).

Mega-City One. You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. And that's why there's the Judges. While the Gangs think they own everything, the Judges would like to differ. As such, there's a war going on in the streets. Soon, you'll be able to replicate those wars on your tabletops in the Judge Dredd Miniatures Game. In this quick preview, we get a look both sides.

Defiance is the new cooperative board game set in the Infinity universe coming from Corvus Belli. But, being a board game, that means it plays on a board. In this case, the board is made up of modular game tiles. So, what do those tiles look like and how do they interact with the game? That's exactly what we get a look at here.

Free League Publishing has announced that The Gray Death, a new campaign module for the Mutant: Year Zero RPG, will be coming out October 29th. If you've been looking for a supplement that brings together all the various expansions for the game, this is the book you've been waiting for.

Core Space has a new expansion set available for it. It's the Galatic Corps, a group of well-trained and well-disciplined individuals. They're coming to the system and you don't want to be between them and their objective. This new box set gives players more miniatures, more scenarios, and even more terrain for their games. As an added bonus, orders from the Core Space website between now and December get a free bonus. Have yourselves a look.

Alien Archive 3 for Starfinder gives GMs a bunch of new alien species to toss at players. But, more than that, it also gives you a way to create your own new alien species. In this article, Aaron Shanks, the designer of the creature companion system, talks about the process behind how the system was made and implemented in the book.

A squad of troopers. They're the basic fighting unit of both the Empire and the Rebellion. But with the addition of even just a single specialist with a specialized weapon or unique training, the overall squad's abilities can be greatly enhanced. In Star Wars: Legion, you'll soon be able to upgrade your units with new specialists. Check out this preview of the two upgrade sets coming soon.

When the bombs fell, everything that wasn't blasted apart was bathed in toxic radiation. While most things just up and died, others lived on, mutated, twisted, and warped by the nuclear fallout. Now, you can bring these toxic abominations to your tabletop as Modiphius has released new figures for Fallout: Wasteland Warfare.

X-Wing. It's pretty much just a 1-v-1 game with two squadrons facing off against one-another. But what about bringing more people in on the fun? That's a little trickier, but not impossible. To help out, Fantasy Flight is coming out with the Epic Battles multiplayer expansion. This new box set contains several scenarios for you to play out with your friends. In this article, they take a look at one so you can know what you're getting into.

During times of war, there are those that will use the conflic to make some money. They are Mercenaries, and they are ready to sell their services to the highest bidder. Well, the Infinity universe is certainly filled with conflict, so it only stands to reason that there are those looking to profit from it. Enter the Soldiers of Fortune box set, coming soon for the game. Have yourselves a look in this preview.

The starships of the Federation are crewed by the most capable people available. But, they won't get a lot done if they simply stay on the ship all day. Nope, someone's going to have to go planetside and see what's up. And that's just what you'll be doing with your new Star Trek HeroClix Away Team figures. You can pick up these characters from the Next Generation series now.

Discuss

Psychers. They can use their mind to tap into a well of power and unleash attacks and enhance their abilities far beyond what any regular mortal is capable of. It's risky, but the risks are often worth the reward. For those with a love of psychers in 40k, you're in luck. There's the new Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising book, as well as the Blood of the Phoenix box set available to order now from Games Workshop.

Happy New Year!

What's that? You say it's October? Well, we're celebrating the New Year anyway. At least, we're prepping for it. Yes, we're getting 2020 vision with a preview of the January releases that Privateer Press will have.

Midweek Snippets time. This week's going by pretty quick so far. I'm certainly happy for that, as it's game again this weekend. So, you know I'm trilled. I came up with some other stupidly ridiculous things I could do as my Bard, so we'll see. But, before we can get there, we need to get to some tasty, bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Orc Tigerwagon Available From Kromlech, Dice of the Ancients Brass Dice Up On Kickstarter, Greatsword Girl Mini Available From Brother Vinni, and Centaur Bodies Now Available from Hero Forge.

You know what that means, Giant Robot Alert. We have Giant Robot Alert. And this one almost crept on by unnoticed. But, at nearly the last minute, we caught it on our screens. It's Obsidian Protocol, and it's a new squad-based mecha miniatures skirmish miniatures game that's up on Kickstarter now. Grab your gear and get going!

When a new game comes out, you might wonder just what it's all about. How can you know if it'll be a game for you before you buy it? Well, if you're looking to find a new sci-fi RPG, and you've been looking at Nexus Redemption, but you've been feeling trepidation about it, D-Verse Publishing has gone and posted a preview version that you can check out before they launch their Kickstarter campaign.

Scattershot set of pre-orders from Games Workshop this week. Though their main banner was about the new Warhammer Underworlds set, called Beastgrave - The Grymwatch, I'm most excited about the new Lizardmen Blood Bowl team. Go Pangaea Punishers! *waves little flag with my own team's logo on it* There's also new Blacsktone Fortress sets you can pick up. I did say that it was scattershot after all.

Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert! Yup, we've got two new Dark Angels figures available for you to order from Forge World this week. One's a new Praetor, while the other is a Legion Leviathan Dreadnaught body. All in stylish black (well, you have to paint them yourself ,but still), for those that like your Dark Angels without their Dark Angel Green coloration (or whatever that color's called nowadays).

Paizo has a pretty busy October planned, from the looks of the update they just posted. If you're wanting to know what's going on with the continued rollout for Pathfinder 2nd Edition, Starfinder and the Starfinder Society, and what events that the company will be attending this month, you'll definitely want to check out this post.

It's been a little bit since we've had new figures for the Judge Dredd Miniatures Game from Warlord Games. But it looks like that wait will soon be over. They've posted up a teaser image for Judge Dredd, Rebellion over on their website. And, I have to say, the modelling looks like a definite step up from some of their previous releases for the line.

While the Imperials can certainly create ships of rather large size, and the Rebels manage to get enough shipbuilders on their side to do it as well, the various individuals that make up the Scum & Villainy faction in X-Wing also can create such large ships. One example is the C-ROC Cruiser. This ship is getting an update to 2nd edition, and you can see just what it will look like in this preview.
