This Week in Wargaming – March 21st, 2016

Hello, TechRaptor readers! Here’s what you may have missed in the world of tabletop wargaming over the last week.

First up is Corvus Belli’s recent announcement on Human Sphere N3, the long-awaited expansion for Infinity. The book was originally scheduled to be released before the end of 2015 but was pushed back in order to ensure the quality of the content and its translations was top-notch. The book is just about ready to hit the shelves, with pre-orders beginning on March 28th and the actual release date expected to be some time before GenCon this year.

The company also released images for the upcoming releases this week as well. The new releases have few playable models (only the Umbra Samaritans for the Combined Army and the Yu Jing Kanren Counter-Insurgency Group), with the other releases apparently being HVT models that should also work well in the upcoming Infinity role-playing game.

Games Workshop announced pre-orders for the Stardrake, an impressively large centerpiece model for the Stormcast Eternals. Coming in at $140 USD, the model will be available in stores on March 26th. The warscroll for the unit is currently available on the Games Workshop website.

Knight Models has released a brief FAQ for their new Marvel Universe Miniatures Game. The FAQ is half in-game questions (do these effects stack on one another?) and half out-of-game questions (will the rules be released online?). The FAQ is available here.

And finally, Mantic Games is asking for players’ assistance in playtesting the rules for their upcoming sci-fi game Warpath and its skirmish variant Warpath Firefight. The company will be pushing out rules updates evert two weeks based on player feedback throughout out March and April. And that’s not all; the company has been focused on. A new FAQ for Kings of War is available as well, helping to clarify odd situations that may come up in the game.
