So what is 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.”
Sounds pretty epic and has a ring of Guardians of the Galaxy about it. Mix that with a bit of the Firefly feel and you’ve got a great game in the making.
Of course, any good game needs models!
As vast array of Human and Alien models are on the way for this game so you could make whatever crew you want.
I particularly like the massive Robot that they’ve added into the mix. Known as ‘Big Bot’ he seems like he’d be one of those gentle giants as the story unfolds.
Are you tempted to dive into this world and give it a go? It seems like the perfect way to build up a set of characters for both skirmish games and a bit of role-playing too if you took them to a system like Traveller for example.
What do you think?
