Hello, TechRaptor readers! Here’s what you may have missed in the world of tabletop wargaming over the last week.
Warcradle Studios announced today the release of the first expansion for Wild West Exodus titled Badlands Adventures. This free expansion to the game is focused around narrative gameplay and features five new adventures, a new system for gaming groups to link games together into a larger campaign narrative, and several new in-game mechanics to help bring the world of the Dystopian Age to life. The expansion also contains several free to use markers representing everything from objectives to civilians to some of the more unique aspects of the world, should players decide to use them rather than making their own.
Corvus Belli has spent the last few weeks subtly hinting at changes coming to the Infinity universe, and today we know what’s coming. Infinity Uprising is the next expansion book coming to the game, focusing on expanding the current Sectorial army options with the addition of Non-Aligned Armies. The company also announced the upcoming release of a new sectorial army: the Japanese Secessionist Army. Similar to the USAriadna army box released in 2015, this will contain new miniatures, a background booklet, missions, scenery, and dice. More information will be released throughout the next week on the upcoming offerings from Corvus Belli.
Privateer Press has announced the upcoming release of a new theme force box for Warmachine. The Cryx Slaughter Fleet Raiders will be hitting store shelves on March 9th containing the following miniatures:
- General Gerlak Slaughterborn – Cryx Blighted Trollkin Solo (resin/metal)
- Bloodgorgers – Cryx Blighted Trollkin Unit (10) (resin/metal)
- Black Ogrun Ironmongers – Cryx Unit (3) (resin/metal)
- Jussika Bloodtongue – Cryx Blighted Trollkin Bloodgorger Command Attachment (resin/metal)
- Scharde Dirge Seers – Cryx Unit (3) (metal)
- Misery Cage – Cryx Solo (1) (resin)
The theme force box will release with an MSRP of $174.99 USD, which offers a 20% savings over buying the contents separately. While this is not a complete army out of the box, as it’s missing a warcaster and warjacks, it is a great boost to any aspiring Cryx player. This will also make a complete 35 point army when combined with the Cryx Battlegroup box for anyone wanting to dive in head first into eternal service to the Dragonfather.
Forge World has announced pre-orders are now available for their newest additions to the Adeptus Custodes army. The Legio Custodes Shield Captain miniature is currently available for pre-order, along with the Adrasite and Pyrithite Spears. The Adrasite and Pyrithite spears come in packs of 5 to allow players a chance to add a little extra firepower to their Custodes forces. All pre-orders have a shipping date of March 9th.
And finally, French boutique miniature studio Raging Heroes has announced two new model packs for their Toughest Girls of the Galaxy model line, focusing on the Lust Elves. Both packs feature the new Lust Elves Matriarch miniature Malheezariah alongside the Mantis Warriors. Players have the choice of either the Matriarch with a retinue of one or two full units of Mantis Warriors (command group and regular troops) with a nice discount for purchasing the box set (15% to 19% depending on bundle size). As always, Raging Heroes offers free shipping for orders over 60€ EUR (about $70 USD).
