News 31 March 2012:
Strike Legion is Going Retail!
Warpath Games Distributors
is currently taking pre-orders from hobby retailers for the first retail shipment of the Strike Legion Main Rulebook
edition varies from the currently available POD edition in that it has a
B&W interitor instead of full color, and has a MSRP of $24.95.
Other volumes in the Strike Legion
and Task Force Zeta
game lines will become available through retail channels in similar
formats (B&W) at regular intervals over the next several months.
Strike Legion: Platoon Leader Release Imminent
Work continues on the long-promised Strike Legion Platoon Leader 15mm-based
scifi small unit combat game, with ongoing playtesting and minor revisions to the text. The rules should be finalized and sent to the editor within the next fortnight, and released around the end of April.
Matching Mag-Tokens from CorSec Engineering
will be made available concurrently with the game's release.
is slightly more detailed than the other two games in the Strike Legion series, but is capable of representing small unit actions from WWII, modern, and near-future ground combat, as well as having the vehicle systems and troop attributes to represent combatants from 'hard' and/or pulp scifi, space operas, and science fantasy settings.
New Planetary Ops Modules
Also in the works is the first of a series of World War II modules for Strike Legion: Planetary Operations. Black Eagle, Red Bear
covers the conflict between Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, 1941-45, and will include specific rules, scenarios, and data cards for Germany, Russia, Hungary, Rumania, and Italy. The game may also include units and rules for Polish and Finnish forces, allowing players to game any Eastern Front actioin from 1939 through the end of the war.
Two additional WWII books are planned for the series. The second book covers the Western, Desert, and Balkans areas of operations from '40-'45, and the third takes a look at the Pacific theater of operations, 1937-45.
Other Projects in the Works
Also in various stages of completion are:
- A Strike Legion Tactical scenario book, which will most likely include a simple campaign system and new unit data cards, along with a small number of additional vehicle systems;
- Two original background sourcebooks that introduce new (or develop existing) forces, with organizational and game data for all four game systems;
- Platoon Leader Volume Two, which will add a number of optional rules, new team types, weapons, and team attributes to the game, along with conversion parameters to translate units between Platoon Leader and the Strike Legion Tactical game series;
- Sector and Grand Galactic integrated campaign game systems, one of which will include a fleet-level space combat game based on Task Force Zeta (much in the same fashion that Planetary Ops is based on the Strike Legion tactical series)...
...and a few things we're not ready to divulge just yet. :)
That's all for this update - more will be posted as developments warrant. Thanks for checking in with us - roll well!
