Star Fleet Battles: Gorn Master Starship Book from Amarillo Design Bureau

Star Fleet battles: Gorn

"Cadets, why do the Gorns have so many of what we consider to be “hybrid ships” such as the destroyer-battlecruiser?  Anyone other than Cadet Granger? Yes, Cadet Granger?”

"The Gorn legislature is notoriously stingy so the Gorn Admiralty plans ahead and finds ways to make larger ships from smaller ones."

"You are correct as always, Cadet Granger. The rest of you, go study your Gorn Master Starship Books. Quiz tomorrow. Dismissed!"

The eighth volume in the long-anticipated Master Starship Book series is now available. It includes every Gorn ship in Star Fleet Battles, including X-ships, Y-ships, and general units that are specific to the Gorn Confederation.

Every ship is illustrated. All updates, corrections, and errata have been added. The ships are in order (regardless of the product they came from) with the enhanced format listing detailed information in a consistent manner.

This book contains the descriptions of the ships, but no SSDs.

Battle Tech: Alpha Strike: Commander's Edition by Catalyst Game Labs

Battle Tech: Alpha Strike

COMMAND YOUR DESTINY

In the BattleTech universe there remains one constant: the drums of war. And where there is war, valiant military commanders from the Great Houses, the Clans, and other interstellar nations lead the charge of hulking BattleMechs, brave infantry, and daring aerofighters to certain victory or crushing defeat on the sprawling battlefields of distant worlds. Rally your troops onward into the fray, and surge forth to triumph over the enemy.

Alpha Strike: Commander’s Edition collects into one handy volume the revised fast-play rules from the original Alpha Strike and the expanded rules from Alpha Strike Companion. Take command of large-scale engagements with tabletop-miniatures gameplay designed for the modern wargamer. Use the force-creation rules to marshal your armies, charge them into battle, and either reap the rewards of conquest or taste the bitter pill of defeat. The future of the Inner Sphere is in your hands!

Rogue Stars: Skirmish Wargaming in a Science Fiction Underworld by Osprey Publishing

Rogue Stars

  

Rogue Stars is a character-based science fiction skirmish wargame, where players command crews of bounty hunters, space pirates, merchants, prospectors, smugglers, mercenary outfits, planetary police and other such shady factions from the fringes of galactic civilisation. Crews can vary in size, typically from four to six, and the character and crew creation systems allow for practically any concept to be built. Detailed environmental rules that include options for flora, fauna, gravity, dangerous terrain and atmosphere, and scenario design rules that ensure that missions are varied and demand adaptation and cunning on the parts of the combatants, make practically any encounter possible. Run contraband tech to rebel fighters on an ocean world while hunted by an alien kill-team or hunt down a research vessel and fight zero-gravity boarding actions in the cold depths of space - whatever you can imagine, you can do.

Tango Prime: Listening Post

Technician First Class Ivor couldn’t believe the display: whatever had jumped into the Saran system was big, spewing smaller objects almost instantly, and headed his way.  Hitting the alarm button, he automatically triggered a data dump back to their main base, Tango Prime and roused the marine guard team still asleep in their barracks.  The real question was could their home base go to defcon one fast enough.  With a (perhaps last) sip of awful coffee, he activated the active protection systems on the sensor tower’s struts and platform.  Simultaneously, he heard the proximity alarms as a ground attack began.  The presumed stealthed arrival of the commando raider ship had gone unnoticed.  He grabbed the Mk17 carbine from its rack and headed for his defense assignment.

Finger and Toe Models announces the release of TANGO PRIME: LISTENING POST, a 28mm, modular sci-fi intelligence outpost.  The set is composed of three basic parts: a frame in two different textures for building the tower; an walled platform; and a sensor mast.  Additional parts allow the frames to be stacked to various levels.  There are two small buildings: the equipment shed and a barracks.  Extra parts allow you to vary the weapons on the frames’ struts.

Since this is a TANGO PRIME series model, it is scaled and textured to fit all the other Finger and Toe Tango Prime sets, while also being compatible with the ARSENAL series of standalone weapons and the weapons of Guns of Pavarone.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh any part of your TANGO PRIME: LISTENING POST, a new one waits your summons (if you have the sacrifice) from hard drive and printer.
