Joseph A. McCullough is taking us into a world of Sci-Fi awesomeness with a new 28mm skirmish miniatures game called Stargrave which will be hitting shelves in April 2021. We got a great look at the cover by Helge C. Balzer from Osprey Games which gives you a taste of this world.

Much like with Frostgrave, the game is going to be supported by North Star Military Figures on the miniatures front and we'll be learning more about those over the coming months. I would imagine we're going to be seeing some great metal miniatures and (fingers crossed) something plastic too!

As for the game of Stargrave itself, we have this little snippet of a preview...

"In a galaxy torn apart by the Last War, vast pirate fleets roam from system to system, robbing, extorting, and enslaving. Amidst this chaos, thousands of independent operators – smugglers, relic hunters, freedom fighters, and mercenaries – roam the dead stars in small ships, scratching out a living any way they can.

In Stargrave, players take on the role of one of these independent operators, choosing from a range of backgrounds each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and associated powers. Next, players must hire a crew for their ship, recruiting a lieutenant with a unique skill-set and a handful of soldiers, mechanics, hackers, and other specialists. Some captains may even recruit strange alien lifeforms with abilities no humanoid could ever possess.

Once the players’ crews are assembled, they are ready to dive into a campaign. Over a series of games, their crews will have the chance to carry out a variety of missions – recovering lost technology, stealing data, freeing slaves, and fighting back against the pirate fleets. In time, as the crews gain experience, they will become more powerful and hire more talented specialists. The more they grow, however, the more likely it is that a pirate fleet will take note of their activities and come after them!"

I like the sound of this already. With Frostgrave going from strength to strength over the years, especially now with its 2nd Edition, it seems apt that McCullough is now stepping into the Sci-Fi ring. It looks like there is scope for all sorts of operator crews which showcase grizzled soldiers, deadly alien killers and big clanking robots.

Are you going to be all over this next year?
