Set two years after Darkspace Calamity, Ninja Division have promised that Void Break will be carrying on the story of Relic Knights, as well as enhancing the game with the inclusion of all new miniatures, sculpted in both resin and plastic.
Here’s the official press announcement from Ninja Division:
Soda Pop Miniatures announces the new expansion for the Relic Knights® miniature skirmish game: Void Break. Void Break provides a new entry point to join the Relic Knights® game, with a complete ruleset that incorporates errata and updates from over a year of player feedback and every unit entry, both old and new.
Taking place two years after the events of Darkspace Calamity, Void Break continues the Relic Knights® story with new fiction, backgrounds, and history. Void Break introduces over 40 new units across the existing six factions, greatly expanding players’ options when building their cadres. Among the new units, each faction gains access to a new Questing Knight and Relic Knight to lead their forces and unlock new gameplay combinations.
The final models from Darkspace Calamity will begin monthly release in July of this year, with the first Void Break units beginning in September and continuing through the launch of the Void Break book in early 2016. To better capture their stunning detail and overthetop anime aesthetic, each new and dynamic model will be featured in resin, with large, centerpiece models in plastic.
All in all, this seems like a pretty exciting development for Relic Knights. I love it when games have a progressive narrative and the fact that this new expansion will incorporate what has gone before should make it a good piece for both new and established players. The anime style miniatures of Relic Knights are already pretty awesome in style, so we will look forward to more coming out of this.
What direction do you think the story of Relic Knights will take in this expansion? What new minis are you hoping for?
