Fantasy Flight Games have announced the coming of a new board game based in the world of Warhammer 40,000, Forbidden Stars. Take control of the Space Marines, Orks, Eldar or Chaos Space Marines for command of the Herakon Cluster…
In Forbidden Stars you take control of one of four factions and each turn secretly place down your orders for a variety of space and land based forces across the sector. You can deploy new units, dominate sectors to secure your position, strategise with the help of combat cards and of course move to take command of other planets.
Of course combat in the world of Warhammer 40,000 is inevitable and you will have one of four unique factions to take control of that have different fighting styles allowing you to have a different experience each time you take to the table and swap sides. Add to that a board that is constructed out of a variety of different tiles and you have quite the makings of a big campaign game worthy of a few replays.
As always the artwork, overall presentation and indeed miniatures from a Fantasy Flight game are looking stunning and it will be good to see more in-depth videos in the future going over the rules for the game.
Has this game already got your attention?
