The launch waves contain a variety of characters and troops such as Legate Lanius or Vulpes Inculta leading Legionaries, Praetorians and Scouts.

Meanwhile, the New California Republic’s incursion eastward brings them into conflict with the varied denizens of this region. Their initial releases include characters such as Chief Hanlon and Gorobets supported by their forces of Rangers and Troopers. 

There will also be some reinforcements for the Super Mutants, with the brutal Nightkin infiltrating the battlefield as well as new allies in Tabitha and Marcus. Robot fans will get the Securitrons and there will be New Vegas companions to reinforce your Survivor faction. 

The Mojave Expansion box set includes the fundamental cards (unit, AI, and items) required to play the NCR and Legion factions, plus the extra supporting releases. It also contains all the narrative cards required to flavor your games in and around New Vegas; new quests, events and explore cards featuring the denizens and encounters you will recognize. 

The box will also contain a softback book containing new rules, scenarios, painting guides and plenty of inspirational photographs.

The mighty Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Enclave Wave pre-order arrives!

Modiphius has announced the arrival of a major new force in the Wasteland as the mighty Enclave pre-order rumbles into view!

Shipping in November, this release heralds a potent new force for your Fallout: Wasteland Warfare tabletop encounters with the Enclave: Core BoxHigh CommandHellfire SetFrank Horrigan and the Enclave Wave Card Expansion Pack making their debut. There’s also a special Enclave bundle which features the promo exclusive figure of Lorenzo Cabot!

As a special bonus, Modiphius is also releasing the pre-orders for the Denizens of the Wasteland Card Expansion Pack and the Wave 1 Fundamentals Card Deck. Now, on with the details.

Enclave: Core Box

The Enclave are the last vestiges of the pre-war system of government in the United States of America. Formed as part of the continuity of government system, the Enclave was formed of high-ranking government officials as well as wealthy industrialists and leading scientific minds. They were to be protected and sheltered from the great war by bunkers and isolated locations, thus preserving the top echelons of the country to rebuild. 

The officers are flanked by heavily armed and power armored soldiers who have trained from a young age to wear their rigs. and the most potent members of an assault team are the Tesla Troopers. These electrically-charged fiends blast, zap, burn and liquify any opponents with high-powered energy weapons, carving a path into any foe they come across. 

Enclave: Core Box

Enclave: High Command

The Enclave is a highly militarised society, and its upper echelons are made up of the elite that the faction can provide. Their officers wield the authority of the Enclave in the wasteland and the various outposts it controls, ruling with an iron fist and stamping the Enclave’s values onto the landscape. 

They are often accompanied by the scientists that the faction is so well know for. Advanced weaponry and armor technology requires testing and attuning, and Enclave scientists go about their task with single minded determination and drive. No one has advanced the Enclave more than Colonel Augustus Autumn. He was the power behind the computerised-throne of John Henry Eden, and took point on the Enclave’s efforts to secure and control Project Purity in the Capital Wasteland.

Enclave: Hellfire Set

Of all the power armor variants that the Enclave deploy, the Hellfire armor causes the most fear among wastelanders. The armor is rightly named as its wearers go to battle equipped with flame-throwing weaponry designed to bring desolation and ruin to all. Specially designed to be resistant to the heat of flame weapons, the Hellfire armor allows maximum flexibility and resilience while incorporating advanced respiration masks to keep oxygen flowing in burning environments. 

Enclave: Hellfire Set

Frank Horrigan

Frank Horrigan it the ultimate foot soldier for the Enclave–though ‘walking tank’ might be a better description. Starting as an unstable soldier deployed in the ruins of California, he quickly became known as a brutal instrument of murderous efficiency. While on a mission to the Mariposa Military Base he was exposed to FEV, beginning his mutation. He was experimented on still further by Enclave scientists to exacerbate his aggression, size, and strength, to the point where he could decapitate a deathclaw with one blow and put his first through the combat-armored chest of a Brotherhood of Steel knight.

Unboxing/Review: Infinity: Betrayal

The world of Corvus Belli‘s Infinity comes to comics with Infinity: Betrayal from writer Víctor Santos and artist Agustin Graham Nakamura.

In a hidden base deep in the jungles of planet Paradiso, Imperial Agent Adil Mehmut must determine whether his prisoner, special operative and former hero Ko Dali, is a traitor to her country and the whole human race, or an alien that has impersonated her to divide humanity.

Corvus Belli’s Infinity N4 is Here

Infinity N4

A new edition of Infinity is here with Corvus Belli‘s Infinity N4, which is available for pre-order until August 28 with shipping to begin in September.

Infinity is a 28mm metal miniatures game simulating special operations and skirmishes in a high technology sci-fi universe; an exciting and action-packed near-future where secret missions, black ops, and covert actions determine the destiny of the Humankind.

And, during the pre-order Infinity N4 comes with a free exclusive, Oktavia Grimsdóttir, Icebreaker Harpooner!


But, there’s more!

During the pre-order, you can get the exclusive miniature Shona Carano, Aristeia! Swordmaster. After a brief return to the HexaDome thanks to Final Boss (which consolidated her reputation as an unstoppable and lethal fighter who never compromised herself to fit show-business conventions) Shona would sign a contract with TransEtherea to travel the Sphere in one of their Circulars as head of security. Hers was supposed to be a purely representative role, but a particularly vicious boarding by an Alliance of several Yuan Yuan pirate gangs would force her to take a more active role and wield her sword to defend the passengers.

And what’s a game without a force to command? Infinity N4 is also launching with the Starmada Action Pack. It’s the perfect box to start collecting and playing with Starmada, the first O-12 Sectorial Army.

Starmada, O-12’s space fleet, was born out of the need of the Bureau Aegis to be a global action force, endowed with an acting capacity that reaches anywhere in the Sphere.

To make things really easy, Corvus Belli is offering a bundle for the N4 book, the Starmada Pack, in which you’ll get the Shona Carano miniature for free.

Da Black Orcs are Coming to Blood Bowl. Waaagh!

A new season/edition of Games Workshop‘s Blood Bowl is coming and with it a brand new team, the Black Orcs!

The Black Orcs are bigger, thougher, and smarter than regular Orcs. They’re the best the Orcs have to offer. A little grumpy, they take the game seriously with a disciplined approach to the game… smashing the other team into the ground.

The team of course features Black Orcs, but it’s the Goblins who may be the stars. Goblins are used to boost the running game. Along with Trolls, the Goblins aren’t your typical ones. They’re highly trained as well and much more reliable when it comes to what goes on in the pitch.

But, with the Black Orcs comes a new take on the classic Varag Ghoul-Chewer, one of the nastiest orcs around.

Corvus Belli’s World Of Infinity Comes To Comics With Infinity: Betrayal From Victor Santos And Agustin Graham Nakamura

Infinity: Betrayal

In this story of political and military intrigue where nothing is what it seems, Adil will test the loyalties of his comrades – and of the very same nation he swore to serve.

Infinity: Betrayal is 128 page a softcover graphic novel and being released in two editions. Infinity: Betrayal features a regular edition and a limited edition that includes an exclusive miniature of the protagonist: Ko Dali. The pack price is 24,95€ PVP.

The new miniature will be playable with the new Infinity N4 rules as well as with Infinity CodeOne (the two latest versions of the well-known wargame).
