Mantic Games have now started taking pre-orders for the new Firefight Two-Player Starter Set and a selection of the Strike Forces that can be used to get started in this new 28mm Sci-Fi wargame.

Enforcer Strike Force - Mantic Games

Enforcer Strike Force // Mantic Games

If you're interested in diving into Firefight but don't want to go down the route of the Two-Player Starter Set then you might want one of these Strike Force bundles. There are seven of them to pick up, covering all of the main fighting forces available in the expanding Warpath universe.

Whilst there are a bunch of similar options available in these two Strike Forces for the Enforcers and the Marauders, these might be worth snapping up to bulk up the options from the Starter Set.

Marauder Strike Force - Mantic Games

Marauder Strike Force // Mantic Games

If you want to spread your wings and head beyond the Enforcers and the Marauders then how about checking out the likes of the Forge Fathers? If you like your Space Dwarves, or you just miss your Squats, then this set might be for you.

Forge Father Strike Force - Mantic Games

Each of the sets comes with a whole bunch of core troops and characters for you to get started in Firefight alongside some bigger vehicles too. Both the Forge Fathers and the Asterians have some very impressive vehicles for example!

Asterian Strike Force - Mantic Games

Asterian Strike Force // Mantic Games

I really like the theme behind the Asterians as an alien race that has been so beleaguered over the decades that they now send robots to do their fighting for them. A neat twist on your traditional Space Elves.

The forces of humanity are also catered for with these Strike Forces as the GCPS have dropped into the fighting. If you wanted to avoid all the big, heavy armour of the Enforcers and liked the idea of playing as the grunts then this is the way to go.

GCPS Strike Force - Mantic Games

GCPS Strike Force // Mantic Games

You do get some crossover between the different forces sometimes but this gives your standard rank and file troops that keep the galaxy safe. I like that whilst they are your more traditional grunts, they look like they have been kitted out well!

When it comes to watching over the galaxy you want to keep an eye out for the foes beneath your feet! The Veer-Myn are no doubt a constant fiendish threat that the GCPS has to send back into the darkness.

Veer-Myn Strike Force - Mantic Games

Veer-Myn Strike Force // Mantic Games

Perhaps you want to play out things the other way? Dig up from underground and spread rot and ruin with your force of deadly Veer-Myn troops. I absolutely love the look of the Veer-Myn vehicles which seem like they have been requisitioned from some poor miners.

You could also go totally twisted and consider picking up the Plague Strike Force which comes with a host of fantastic miniatures and abominations for you to have fun with.

Whilst you might have thought that I would go for the Forge Fathers, I actually think that the Plague Strike Force is the way forward. I think it comes with some absolutely fascinating miniatures that would be really fun to paint, especially if you like the idea of being a bit wild with your colours!

Firefight Two-Player Starter Set

If those Strike Forces don't work for you, or you're just new to Firefight, then you can just snap up the Two-Player Starter Set and dive into that. It comes with everything that you need to get started.

You get seventy-one miniatures covering the Enforcers and the Marauders which works as a nice starting point. You also get the two core books for Firefight (available separately as well) plus dice and tokens allowing you to get stuck in right away.

So, how are you going to dive into Firefight? Are you going to be picking up the Two-Player Starter Set or exploring Firefight through one of the Strike Forces?
