Terminator Genisys


Fall of Skynet, the new expansion for Terminator: Genisys: Rise of the Resistance is now available. Will humanity win back against the machines? Will the machines wipe out humanity's last chance for survival? Only you can decide.

Most of the Warlord Games crew is out of the office. But the ones left over have gone a bit CRAZY!! They've slashed prices on a bunch of products and now's your chance to get games and minis at a special price. Better get there quick before Paul gets back and everything goes back to normal.
The machines will stop at nothing to destroy all of humanity. Skynet has made that its prime goal. Then, afterward, it will... uh... Well, it's gotta finish step 1 before it can move on to step 2, right? In order to do that, two new weapons are coming out for the Terminators side for the Terminator: Genisys game from Warlord Games. They're the Buzzer and the Spider Dog
Saturday! Glorious Saturday!
As you read this, I'm at a library that a friend works at. They're having their first Board Game Day and so I'm playing some board games. Actually, there's a very high likelihood that I'm playing Guild Ball, which isn't really a board game, but it's still alright.

Anyway, while I'm doing that, I've also got some review articles for you.

Today I have: Stolen Treasures, Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space: Ultimate Edition, Statecraft, Shinobi, Terminator Genisys Heavy Weapon Endoskeletons, Ice Cool, The CopyCat, Stak Bots Red, 51st State, Tyrants of the Underdark, StoryLine: Fairy Tales, Dr. Eureka, and Istanbul: Mocha & Baksheesh.

By now you've no doubt seen me previously posting about how I love when companies post the rules for their games online so people can check them out. With so many game systems out there these days, it's impossible to play them all, and so we have to pick and choose. Checking out a rules system ahead of time is a great way to find out if it's something you'd think you'd like or not. It also shows confidence in the system on the part of the game company. "We know you're going to like the game, so check out the rules." Well, Warlord Games has posted up the rules for Terminator: Genisys up online.
Come with me if you want to get some new miniatures for your Terminator: Genisys armies. And really, you don't even have to come with me. You can sit right there. You just have to read on. It's actually quite simple. A lot simpler than time-travel, anyway. But I'm getting off-track. There's some new figures available for Terminator: Genisys, as well as Warlord Games posting the rules and FAQ online.
Warlord Games is gearing up for the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Terminator Genisys by getting some new character packs for the miniatures game. River Horse has made them all up and now Warlord is selling them over in their webshop.

The machines have been getting a lot of the attention in recent releases for Terminator Genisys. Well, if humanity is going to have any chance to not go the way of the dinosaurs (... though now the idea of a tyrannosaurus with a minigun is in my head... and it's an awesome idea), they're going to need some reinforcements. Thankfully, some are in the works.
Call to John... and all of your other friends to let them know that Warlord Games has their new T-1000 Infiltrator available for Terminator Genisys. Though if this one really wants to do any real infiltrating, it really should fix all those holes in itself. That's gotta be a dead-giveaway that you're a robot.
I mentioned earlier that Warlord's been rather busy lately. One of their big, new properties is Terminator: Genisys. The box game comes with some standard endoskeletons as well as a fold-out paper play mat. Well, if you want to add a bit more of a punch to your robot armies, or if you want to have a bit more sturdy mat, they have you covered with these new releases.
Skynet may be a machine, but it's a thinking machine, able to plan. It knows that one tool isn't going to solve all problems. It takes a whole toolbox in order to get a complex job done. Well, "killing all the humans" is a pretty complex job (just ask Bender). A single type of Endoskeleton armed with just a single type of weapon isn't going to do it. As such, there are several available to use. And Warlord Games is bringing you some models of those types for the Terminator Genisys miniatures game.
Terminator Genisys opened up in theaters over the weekend. I was busy cooking and didn't head out to see it. Did anybody here? If so, what did you think? For those that have also played the game, designed by River Horse and released by Warlord Games, how do you feel the game matches up to the movie? Does it give that same "Terminator Feel" as the films? Well, one iconic thing about the film series is the set of memorable characters. You can now bring more of those to your minis game.
Two non-Napoleonic stories from Warlord? Who knew it could be so!
Well, they'll be back with one tomorrow. So don't worry too much.
This time they're adding reinforcements to your Terminator Genisys collection. The main box is available (check out our unboxing here). Now they have a box of Endoskeletons, Resistance Soldiers, extra Dice, and the Rulebook available separately.
No fate...
Unless you roll it, anyway. Hey everyone. Here at the TGN office, we got ourselves a copy of the new Terminator: Genisys game created by River Horse and distributed by Warlord Games. We put together a little video showing off what you get in the War Against the Machines starter set. Check it out below the cut.
There's also a contest where you can win your own copy of the game (still sealed up and everything).
Warlord Games will be shipping the Terminator Genisys: The War Against The Machines starter sets soon. However, as we all know, starter sets are great for starting, but they're not so great when you really want to get into the real nuts and bolts of a game. That takes expansion packs. Warlord's showing off the first three of those packs. And now you can see them below the cut!
There's also a new trailer out for the movie that we've embedded below, too.
Come with me if you want to live... Or really, if you just want to see the 3D render of the T-1000 for the upcoming Terminator Genisys miniatures game. Yeah, sure, you can see part of the mini up there in the feature, but it's below the cut where you get to see the whole thing. And we all know that's the most interesting bit. I'm not even going to make you break through a helicopter windshield and flow through it in your liquid metal form. You've just gotta click.
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.

From the website:
Warlord Games had some preview material for Terminator Genisys on display recently, including a look at the box contents, the rulebook covers, and some of the sprues. There's also a (slightly grainy) photo of some painted-up human survivors. They also remind us that pre-orders are to begin next month, so keep a look-out for that.
You can check out the previews below.

From the post:
Warlord Games gives us some more hints about what they've got coming for Terminator Genisys. They've announced that there will be two versions of the game. They're going to have Terminator Genisys: The War Against The Machines and Battle for the Future. Each set will have their own starter box, so you can decide which form you want to get into the game with. Pre-orders will begin in May over on the Warlord Games website.
Check below the cut for the list of contents they plan on having in each set.

From the announcement:
Warlord Games has announced that they will be the exclusive distributor of the upcoming Terminator Genisys miniatures game. Genisys will still be a River Horse property, but the game will be only available from Warlord (sort of like how they are with Judge Dredd). The connection between the two companies is pretty obvious, since Alessio Cavatore was also the writer for Bolt Action's rules.
We also get info that the game will have a summer release to coincide with the movie's release.

From the website:
River Horse, Alessio Cavatore's game company, has posted up a teaser photo about a new miniature game they're apparently working on. A tie-in with the upcoming Terminator movie, the new game hasn't had much in the way of beans spill about it yet. So feel free to let your imaginations run wild while we look for more details.
