Today we’ve got some small game updates for you, some big changes for warfleets, some new models, a new one-off game and even a battle report.
Let’s get to it!
Today we’ve updated a 30+ army lists in order to provide some much needed hotfixes, clearing up some confusing rules, as well as tweaking a couple of units and special rules.
Here’s all the changes:
GF & AoF – Multiple Armies
- Rules that allow units to block spells as if they were Psychic/Wizard now get +2 to block
- Rules that allow units to repair damage now work on 2+ instead of 4+
- Shield Wall rule now only works when all models have the rule
GF – Robot Legions
- Tri-Scorpion Pistoleer now has Ambush and Hunter, but only Tough(3)
GF & AoF – Havoc Brothers / Havoc Warriors
- Added new unit: Furies
Warfleets: FTL Update
As previously announced, we’ve been secretly working on a D6 version of Warfleets: FTL for a couple of months now, and today we’re very happy to release the game for everyone.
Even though we think that the 2D6 version of the game was awesome in its own right, the actual gameplay ended up being a little bit slower and more mathy then our original vision. By switching to a D6 based system, we’re making the game much faster and more cinematic, without sacrificing any of the strategy.
With this we are considering the bulk of the game to be done, and the Full Rulebook is going to be released for everyone in March. If you want the Full Rulebook (plus much more) right now, then you can get it by supporting us on Patreon.
We know that a lot of you like the 2D6 version, so we’re doing two things to keep you happy:
- The current 2D6 version will remain available on our website until the 31st of January for you to download. It comes in a .zip with all of the core rules, faction book and the basic rulebook. Make sure to download it by clicking here before it’s gone.
- We’ve updated the Orion’s Gate rules to be more in line with all of the improvements from FTL, and they’re available for download in the One-Off Games section. These rules are not going to be removed, meaning that a 2D6 battleships game is always going to be available for you.
Give the game a try, we think you’re going to love it! ;)
Soul Forge Studio
Speaking of Warfleets: FTL, as many of you know, a few months back we release a few sets of 3D Spaceships, which were made by the talented Danny Cyanide.
Well, over the past few months Danny been running his own Patreon called Soul Forge Studio, which focuses on releasing awesome BFG style ships, which are fully modular!

2D Ratmen Clans & Xenos Fleet
This week we’ve also released two new paper minis sets with the Ratmen Clans and the Xenos Fleet, which are available for download on Patreon.
As a side-note, with this release we’ve also added the Ratmen Clans warband to arena season 3, and we’re currently working on generally streamlining and improving the game. We will be postin more info on that soon, so keep your eyes peeled arena fans!
Little Dice Wars
Whilst looking through our archive we found an old game we made called Little Dice Wars, which is an adaptation of Little Wars by H. G Wells, so that it’s playable with modern miniatures and dice, instead of using lead soldiers and firing toy guns.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with Little Wars, this is the game that basically started it all. It’s the grandaddy of modern miniature games and laid the foundations for most of the wargames you play today.
We’re sure that some of you will appreciate this little game and after playing it a couple times it actually has some really interesting mechanics that you don’t see in modern wargames (no dice rolling for infantry combat, taking prisoners of war, what?!).
Download the rules in the One-Off Games section!
