Here’s the background to what’s going on…
“A Sigma Event, in BlackOps parlance, is an event that the Galactic Council deems a sudden and unexpected situation that only the most highly trained and discreet operatives can successfully deal with before a potentially galactic-wide threat comes to fruition.
You’ll be on the hidden front lines as you attempt to stop an unexpected and unknown force that threatens not only the outer rim colonies but the galaxy as a whole. You must study and stop the threat before it grows in power by consuming the incredibly resource-dense worlds of the outer rim mining hubs.
The Galactic Council has tasked you to respond to the most dangerous Sigma Event yet… Sigma Event: 2177″
The focus is going to be on creating two armies for this game and also providing you with the Gruntz Lite rules so you can play out this campaign on the tabletop.
I do like that they’ve given a nod to Live, Die, Repeat with their character model leading the soldiers into the fighting.
We’ve got some of the first character designs here for you, painted up and ready for deadly missions behind enemy lines.
Considering their scale they are incredibly well detailed. To be honest though at this point I probably shouldn’t be surprised as sculptors are learning to put more and more detail into smaller pieces.
You can also see the terrifying bug menace threatening us!
Is anyone else getting the feeling that we’re all doomed, Starship Trooper style? Well, hopefully, these special operations troops will be able to deal with the infestation.
I do like the clear basing idea for miniatures at this scale too. It makes the miniature stand out quite a bit more, not being crowded by an overburdened base.
What do you think?
