Add-ons include two mission packs that come with their own terrain and mission log. Outbreak! has the traders mount a rescue mission in the middle of a derelict ship overrun by an alien infestation.

Get to the reactor!

In Shootout at Zed’s the traders get caught in the middle of a firefignt between the Galactic Corps and the criminals known as Zed’s crew.

It’s all go at Zed’s!

Other add-ons include the Metropolitan pack with more civilians and security cops.

ADD-ON-Q-metro-05

More city folk to fill up your streets 🙂

TITAN PLEDGE

We’ve also opened up a new pledge, the Titan. This is an extra large set and comes with its own mission and terrain, Accord on Titan where the traders form an alliance with each other and the usually hostile Galactic Corps to fight off the Purge! Titan also comes bundled with the other two misson packs.

cs-banner-01-top-04

cs-banner-02-minis

cs-banner-03-terra

cs-banner-04-comp

We’ve got just over 24 days to pump out as many free stretch goals and cool add-ons as we can. First add-on up is the OUTBREAK! mission pack. A self contained mission that can be played as a one-off or as part of a campaign that comes with it’s own terrain.

ADD-ON-K-mission-05

What’s this creepy alien goo? Eugh! It’s got into my shoe!

Reskinned reactors and cell walls alongside the very popular infestation for a very reasonable 8 Universal Assets (Earth money is also acceptable).

As for stretch goals we’ve already unlocked Director Zool, he’s now FREE to every backer who took a core pledge. A big cheese in the Galactic Corps his job is to make your life as
difficult as possible.

SG01-zool-UNLOCKED-05

ZOOOOOLLLL!!!!!

We’ve got several new characters lined up just waiting to be unlocked along with FREE terrain.

SG02-zed-locked-06

He’s a naughty crim!

SG03-weaver-locked

He’s a tough guy with a heart of gold. Except it’s not.

SG04-marlowe-locked

He’s a thinker, not a fighter. He’ll still kick your butt, though.

Speaking of FREE (the capitals are a running joke if you wondered)  😉 we also have bonus minis for our core backers, minis that aren’t in the retail box but will be FREE to our backers, including two criminal gang members, Hobb and Chunk, two Galactic guards, each in a different pose and four harvester Purge, the foot soldiers of the creepy synthetic species out to get you!

Game Day & Beasts of War Awards

GAME DAY

In a sleepy village hall in deepest Worcestershire we had our second ever Battle Systems Game Day. We invited some of our previous backers to beta test our prototype sci-fi game and a fun time was had by all.

battlesystems-prototype-150

The prototype set up on the day.

The guys got to play a full game, check out the miniatures and artwork and be gently grilled on what they hope to see in the final version.

battlesystems-prototype-149a

Playing the game…

Close up, notice the cyberpunk setting…

battlesystems-prototype-151

These are proxy miniatures used just for the prototype.

Here’s some of our actual minis. They’re an awesome 32mm…

Heroes and Villians. 3D renders of some of our minis.

Here’s a 3D printed protoype getting a paint job by Stewart Herbert

From 3D concept to painted mini.

The new Kickstarter is pencilled in for mid November, as always we’ll let you know more as we get closer to the time.

Webshop and Game Testing

WEBSHOP

We’re very pleased to announce that our Sci-fi II Kickstarter terrain is now available directly from our webshop 🙂 http://shop.battlesystems.co.uk/sci-fi-terrain-10-c.asp

Nearly all of the items from the Kickstarter are available so if you missed the campaign due to a poor alignment of the planets or are missing a precious item due to your dog eating your wallet you can now jump in and feast on the cardboardy goodness! No need to push and shove or use those specially sharpened elbows we’ve plenty of stock for everyone 🙂

Tonnes of cool stuff 🙂

We also have three Urban Apocalypse items that were previously only available with the core sets: Street items, Furniture and Shanty Accessories http://shop.battlesystems.co.uk/urban-apocalypse-terrain-8-c.asp

Each gives you a tonne of cool war-torn scatter, they’ll shabby up your terrain a treat!

Post apocalyptic chic 🙂

SCI-FI GAME

As you may know we’ve been working on a full game for our next Kickstarter. We’ve kept it close to our chest during development but we can now confirm the following; it will be a Sci-fi tabletop skirmisher with miniatures, card terrain, dice, cards, a game mat, the lot. The core pledge will be a complete game in itself with a load of cool expansions available.

The game is set in the same universe as our Sci-fi II terrain and will be compatible with our previous terrain, especially Sci-fi II, so if you want to mix and match or expand on the game you can. The new terrain has a more run down cyberpunk feel ideal for rain washed streets on alien worlds or derelict hulks in deep space.

Set in the fringes of Human space your heroes will need to learn how to adapt and survive, allocate resources, plan campaigns and team up with other players when needed – being handy with a gun is only part of the game.

purge-scanning

THREAT LEVEL: HIGH!

Anyway, here’s a pic to whet your appetite, this is one of the Purge, a species of machine that wants nothing more than to break you down into useful components! We’ll let you know more about the game in later updates. In the meantime…

BETA TESTERS WANTED!

We’ve been doing closed beta testing with our prototype for a while now and want to widen our test audience; that means we’re inviting you good folks to join in. If you’re within travelling distance to Redditch in the West Midlands, UK, and are available in October we’d like you to join us, to either play the game or just spectate. The specific date(s) and venue will depend on the numbers attending.

So the plan is:

  • Either a full or half day event, depending on numbers
  • Beta testing of the game
  • Sneak peaks of artwork and miniatures
  • Hands on of some finished sculpts and new terrain
  • Some terrain special offer deals for those that attend
  • Other terrain set ups with games ready to play
  • Drinks and snacks provided… while snacks last!

If this sounds like something you’re keen to attend then email us at info@battlesystems.co.uk

We’ll get back to you with specific dates so you can confirm your attendance.
