Today we’ve got a truly gargantuan update for you, with a new game, writing jam results, october previews, game updates, and much more.
Let’s get to it!
The wait is finally over everyone, Warfleets: FTL is now available to the public!
When I was first approached by Austin Peasley back in 2014 about the making of a spaceship battles game, I could’ve never imagined that we’d be here 6 years later releasing a full spaceship game of our own.
The journey has been long, with many iterations of the game, and even some moments of true despair, but we’re really happy that this game is now available for download, and can’t wait to see player’s reactions to it!
For those of you that are hearing about Warfleets: FTL for the first time, this is our take on a fast and furious spaceship battles game, which offers tons of fleet customization and exciting space battles.
Players take on the roles of commanders of a fully personalized fleet, which is made up of ships, heroes and upgrades from a common set of assets, as well as special assets from one of 6 interstellar factions.
Each faction comes with its own selection of ships, heroes and upgrades, and there is also a wide selection of legendary fleets, giving players the chance to step into the shoes of legendary FTL admirals.
As always, the core rules and faction book are completely free, and they offer countless hours of explosive spaceship battles… but what if you want more?
If you support us on Patreon, you can get access to the Full Rulebook, which adds a ton of advanced rules that allow you to further customize your games, with extra missions, deployment styles, events, and much more.
The Full Rulebook also has rules that allow you to re-use widgets from other games, such as blast markers, order dice, ordnance tokens, command dials, and many more.
Here a full breakdown of what you get in the Full Rulebook:
- Terrain Placement Rules
- Multiple Deployment Styles
- Extra Missions
- Boarding Actions
- Random Events
- Battlefield Phenomena
- Terrain & Objective Effects
- Fog of War Rules
- Catastrophic Damage Rules
- Order Dice Rules
- Shields & Defense Tokens Rules
- Scanner Ranges Rules
- Rules for Planetary Control Games
- Rules for Multiplayer Games
- Rules for Kitchen Table Games
If you don’t have any spaceship models, you can also pick up our very own 2D and 3D models on Patreon, where we’re releasing a new fleet every month.
Next month we’ll also be releasing a set of 2D space terrain with lots of asteroids fields, destroyed ships, space nebulas and more, which you can use to pretty up your table when playing both with 2D and 3D models.
Alright, this should be enough of a preview, now it’s time for you to check out the games yourself. Make sure to join our Discord Server to share pictures of your battles and provide your feedback and ideas!

Note that the Full Rulebook is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until we feel that the game is polished enough for a “final” release, at which point it will be removed and put for sale on our WargameVault store.

Dwarf Army Bundle Released
Over the past 6 months we’ve released a full Dwarf Army in collaboration with Kyoushuneko Miniatures, which came out looking pretty damn awesome.
Whilst we had single units available for sale until now, some players asked us if it was possible to get the entire army at once, and well… your wish is our command!
The complete Dwarf Army is now available for sale as a bundle with a hefty 20% discount, and if you’re also a patron at Tier 3, then you will get an additional 20% discount on top!
Get the full army here: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-model-collections/dwarf-army-bundle
Age of Fantasy: Regiment Videos
The great folks at Stonehorse Gaming have been releasing more and more AoF:R videos, with an awesome how to play video and a battle report. Now they’re also adding new tactics videos which cover all aspects of the game one by one, and are definitely worth checking out.
Three Men and a Wargame Podcast
Last but not least, we wanted to give a shoutout to the Three Men and a Wargame podcast, who were so kind to cover our September releases in full detail.

That’s it for today, but don’t worry, just because we released FTL today doesn’t mean we’re done making games, so keep your eyes peeled for more stuff that’s on the horizon. ;)
