WizKids Releases an Update about Star Trek: Attack Wing

star-trek-attack-wingStar Trek: Attack Wing is one of WizKids‘ popular game lines, a miniature game where you build a fleet of ships from throughout the Star Trek universe to do battle. Recently the company has been releasing new versions of previously released figures sometimes with a new repaint and with updated rules.

The company sent an email explaining it was taking a new direction with their releases:

First off, we’d like to thank you for all of your support over the last three years!  We’re excited to finally unveil some of the new things we’ve been working on this past year.

WizKids will be releasing a digital version of the revised rulebook. The digital version will contain refreshed rules that incorporate rulings and FAQs released online, providing an up-to-date comprehensive rulebook. No need to worry – all previously released STAW product will be compatible; no products will become obsolete in conjunction with this update.

Secondly, we are planning to release a new configuration of STAW products.  These products will have a lower price point and contain new content, but will not include ship models.  While the new configurations won’t include ship models, they will note the previously-released ships customers need to purchase. The new configuration will offer a more cost-effective option for players who already have many copies of an existing ship sculpt.  Aside from a lower price point, these packs will include a selection of updated content to support updated rules for ship models of the same type.

Third, we will be introducing faction packs. These packs will provide a ready to field fleet of ships from the same faction that will allow new players to field a team while providing a lower priced value (per ship) to new and veteran customers.

Fourth, we will continue to increase our paint quality across the line.  We hope you agree that our ships have never looked better.

Last but certainly not least, we’re excited to share that we’ve been exploring a process that will allow fans to submit their very own content ideas to WizKids. There may be limitations to this endeavor, but we believe the STAW community can provide many exciting ideas. There are many details that will need to be worked out before we can announce anything more specific about the submission process.

We want to thank you so much for your continued patience and support of WizKids and the STAW line of products. We hope these new initiatives will help the game continue to flourish until teleporters and replicators are a reality… (or at least until there’s a human colony on Mars).

Live long and prosper,

WizKids
