This intriguing new set reintroduces the Mi-Go as a major force in the Achtung! Cthulhu universe ahead of our 2d20 version of the game and these nine models can also be used for both tabletop and wargaming adventures. Here are the details on the new Expedition set!
The Mi-Go are a strange marriage of sentient fungus and subjugated insectoid from beyond the far reaches of the solar system and they came to earth millennia ago, establishing hives in the remoter corners of the planet for their own strange purposes: benign or malevolent who can truly say for the Mi-Go’s motivations are almost unknowable to the minds of men.
The most commonly encountered Mi-Go force in the Secret War is an Expedition, a combined force of Drones and Augmented Mi-Go, a small but potent battle group who are dispatched to secure artefacts, land, or perhaps even specimens for the Mi-Go’s bizarre, unholy bio-experiments.
This force comprises four standard Drones and five Augmented Mi-Go. The Drones are formidable enough foes in their own right with savage claws and pincers, but the Augmented Mi-Go boast an array of additional armour and powerful weaponry, it only the brave or the foolish who would stand in their way!
Spartan Games and ModiphiusEntertainment have announced a team-up to bring us some new projects starting in 2014, the first of which is Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish Game, to be launched in Spring 2014. Building on the massive range of Cthulhu creatures, Allied Investigators and Nazi Villains funded by the Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter, Spartan Games will launch a full-blown skirmish game line under license from Modiphius.
The Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish Game will utilise the fast-paced, action-packed rules used in Spartan’s Dystopian Legions game, and plans for the range include starter sets, faction sets, hero sets, large creature sets and experimental vehicles, as well as a full-colour stand alone rulebook.
The first range of 49 miniatures, sculpted by Russ Charles, will be extended to include more Mythos creatures, Nazi Villains, Allied Heroes and strange experimental vehicles. Spartan plan to utilise their hugely popular laser-cut scenery line to add some stunning battlefield scenic accessories so that players can bring to lifesome of the stranger aspects of the Achtung! Cthulhu world, whilst Spartan’s high quality resins will allow some truly larger-than-life Cthulhu creatures and war machines to dominate the battlefield.
