Tabletop Gaming News

April 26th, 2012 by Mad Dave Comments

Dave here with the first of our Tabletop Gaming News, which I hope to get out at least every two weeks, of course if I have any breaking news I will get it out there ASAP.

Ill hit the ground running (better for evading incoming fire) and show you the March releases from

Finally, the long-awaited French-Ariadnan Sectorial Starter Pack has been released. This box is a compilation of previously released figures: 3 Métros – the Merovingian base troops; 1 Para-Commando HMG – with so powerful support weapon this parachutist is the true “death from above”; 1 Zouave – this skilled light trooper can be deployed in advance, able to take down any armored enemy with his D.E.P.; 1 female Moblot with Rifle – this tough Heavy Infantry is a conversion of a previously released figure. As a powerful mobile force, the FRRM is perfectly placed to respond to any threat or neutralize any danger at any point on the planet in a short space of time.

 

Sun Tze v.2 (Marksman Leader) This is the most tactical version of the Recreation of the legendary strategist. The “Marksman Leader” equipment provides him with the ability to shoot his enemies at a very long distance with his characteristic serenity and methodical precision. Now Yu Jing players can combine Sun Tze’s Strategos Special Skill with his sniper ability.

Hafza (Spitfire). The Haqqislamite Hafza is one of the few units that can use a Spitfire, the queen of the support weapons, as a Lieutenant. Thanks to their holo-devices the Hafza can disguise themselves by taking on the appearance of a different troop type. They are very useful as hidden Lieutenants but also in an Infinity Fireteam, where they provide more tactical flexibility, allowing creation of cheaper linked teams.

Gwailos (Spitfire) The Gwailos are the Shasvastii strike force, always taking the direct path. Covered by their advanced Nanoscreen, the Gwailos perform devastating attacks ignoring hostile fire. Now you can add more firepower to your Gwailos Fireteam with this Spitfire specialist, so it will be more fearsome than ever

Druze Shock Team. Created by the Druze Society, the Shock Teams are a mercenary assault unit with a wild and bloody reputation, equipped with sophisticated military gear. So, this Four multipart figures box is a gift not only for Haqqislamite players, who can form a Druze Fireteam in their Qapu Khalqi Sectorial Army, but also for the other Infinity players who can use them as Mercenaries.

I know this is old news to some of you but good news none the less.

April 25, 2012

Only the most powerful Man-O-War soldiers—gifted with uhlan blood and born and raised in the saddle—may petition to become drakhuns. Each one trains his powerful Karpathan destrier to be as much a weapon as the mechanikal axe and cannon he bears into battle. Uniting the ancient traditions of uhlan heroes with the armor of the Man-O-War, the drakhun is a mechanikal force of destruction able to fight even if his mount should fall.

Knights Exemplar

United by shared faith and a deep fraternal bond, the Knights Exemplar are the embodiment of absolute obedience and are ready and eager to shed blood in Menoth’s name.

I'm Mad Dave one of the team's growing collection of tabletop gaming nerds. I was raised on a healthy diet of TV like Blake 7, Doctor Who and Star Trek with a side of sword and sorcery / sc-fi movies and a large dollop of board games like Cluedo, RISK and Hero Quest. You know your a gaming nerd if: You bring toy soldiers to work? You bring toy soldiers to work and you work has nothing to do with toy soldiers? Most of you jackets / coats have dice in one of the pockets? You hate throwing away packaging because you know it's actually a ruined building or field generator? You have a collection of old packaging? You can find something relevant to your hobby i.e. books, magazines, figures etc in almost every room in your house? I no I'm a nerd because I've done all of the above, how many of these made you smile and nod yes to?
