The exciting underwater game of DeepWars by Antimatter Games has some new options available on Kickstarter right now. The DeepWars: Hunters of the Abyss features the fantastic submersible, The Argonaut, as well as some new characters for the game.
The Argonaut is 200mm in length and scaled to 30mm gaming, which means it will look incredible on your table for DeepWars. It is a small submersible created by the Fortune Hunters for exploring the shallow waters of Blood Reef.
It was built quickly using spare parts and salvaged junk found on the bottom of the Shadow Sea and may appear to be a slapdash hunk of wreckage but is actually a rugged and dependable marine vehicle.
Up to eight models can be transported within the pressurised hull of the Argonaut, including the pilot and gunner. Models within the sub are always wearing their dive suits when exploring Blood Reef, just in case the sub sinks.
This is an unlikely situation though, as the Argonaut is heavily armoured with thick steel plates and is bristling with weapons.
The primary weapons for underwater combat are twin banks of torpedoes on either side of the sub. These can be fired when the sub is turned broadside to an enemy submersible or one of the massive creatures of the deep. When the Argonaut is surfaced or still underwater, it can also bring to bear its deadly auto-loading deck gun, which fires explosive-tipped projectiles.
This weapon can also be fitted with a standard harpoon so it can strike and pull in large targets. When in close, the Argonaut can ram into the enemy craft with an extendable steel spar and puncture their hulls.
If you haven’t already made the leap into DeepWars, this may be the perfect opportunity to hop onboard… in the Argonaut!
Will you be adding the Argonaut to your collection?
