since we've been speaking of Games Workshop's cease & desist orders recently it looks like Prodos (the guys behind Warzone, the AVP game & afew other bits and bobs) are going to be producing a new line of miniatures called Space Crusaders that are verging on Brother Vinni levels of bad taste. They're also going to produce a Space Crusade boardgame (featuring more space bimbos who just have to protect their limbs because that's the only place enemies are going to attack. Nothing delicate and squishy anywhere else, obviously).
A number of people complained that the armour the miniatures in the boardgame were wearing was .... not that protective... so they've quickly (really quickly) announced a PG13 version of the boardgame to release at the same time. Given how finished the fully armoured sculpts look I'd guess they had them ready and just announced the naughty version first to drum up interest via scandal.
Feel free to take a look for yourselves if you want. The dreadnaught's kind of interesting if you imagine some sort of central protective forcefield so the armour wouldn't restrict her field of view or something.
Shame as I liked space crusade and would buy that again if it were re released.
I've got sororitas but those are a bit skimpy to include
Apparently Gamezone (the Spanish company who're doing a Heroquest knock off that actually looks pretty good) are planning on producing their own version of Space Crusade as well. Like Heroquest, it will only be available to retail in Spain but you can order foreign language versions (such as the English version) from their website and they'll deliver it internationally to your country.
I haven't jumped on their version of Heroquest yet because I don't have a lot of money right now.
As for space battle nuns I'll just remind you hen the TGG2 pledge manager goes live shall I? I know I'm saving up for it.
Do it! When and what? For what purpose. I'd do different for necromunda than for infinity, etc I'm vastly more productive for other people!
When and what?
Ev er y thing!
Sort of .
Purpose is varied. I've got a few ideas knocking around. I'm imaging some kind of sci fi battle game with a kind of grungy Mad Max/Necromunda sort of feel to it. Small scale (think small 40k army as opposed to medium or large sized). The kind of thing where the Jailbirds could double as a Necromunda gang while the Kurganova Stormtroopers would make up the more experienced/well trained group of the army. The fact that the Jailbirds' equipment is salvaged/stolen partial Kurganova gear helps make them look like they belong in the same world.
I have no idea what sort of rules I'd use to play with them yet. as for the space nuns, they'd be used as Sisters of Battle (with the fantasy nuns being some kind of fantasy army/Bretonian auxilliary force). Probably a discussion for another thread. Want to assemble a whole lot of Momminiaturas dwarfs, some Avatars of War dwarfs, and some Black Chapel Miniatures dwarfs into a small fantasy army? There's some bits that need sticking together .
