Over the past week we’ve been mostly working on the release of the Patreon rewards for February and for March, but also had some time to work on the new version of our arena games, which is now available for everyone. :)
This month also sees the release of lots of new gaming stuff, with the full rulebook for Warfleets: FTL now available for sale, the new version of our Arena games available to the public, and some updates to various army lists of GF and AoF.
Let’s get to it!

We’ve also released a starter set for those that don’t have spaceship models, which comes with paper models for the Empire and Marauders fleets, as well as a full set of Space Terrain. The starter set also comes with two pre-made fleet lists, so that you can get started with the game in no-time.

New Arena Games Available
In other big game news, the new version of our arena games is now available for download!
The new version of arena is much faster, more engaging, and doesn’t require and can even be played withot a hex board. We know that this might be a bit jarring at first, but we trust that after a couple of matches you will also find the new version to be more enjoyable.
We are going to keep the old version available for download here until the 31st of March, after which it will be removed. If you want to keep it make sure to download it before that.
Check out the games here:
