Vanguard - A Traveller Miniatures Game

Postby msprange » Wed Nov 07, 2018 11:13 am

A miniatures game derived from the Traveller RPG is on its way - Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War.

Vanguard pits the Imperial Marines against the psionic troopers of the Zhodani Consulate in a vicious race to gain control of a warship. Players build forces and play through a campaign of missions that start at the initial breach and culminate in a desperate strike against a critical location on the ship. Resources must be managed throughout the battles as boarders and defenders fight for every room and corridor to reach their objectives. Each marine and trooper must contend with not only the enemy, but explosive decompression, alterations to the artificial gravity of the ship, and damage to the hull from the battle raging outside in the void.

The starter set comes complete with gameboards to create multiple configurations of the ship's interior, 16 Imperial Marines, 14 Zhodani troopers, and 2 Zhodani Warbots.

What material are you planning to do the miniatures in?
The sculpts - especially the aslan sculpt - look very impressive.
Understand that I'm not advocating violence.
I'm just saying that it's highly effective and I strongly recommend using it.
