Ares Games are going to be pre-releasing Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles at Essen SPIEL '18.

Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles Starter Set - Ares Games

At the show you are going to be able to snag yourself the Starter Set which you can see above containing two Vipers and two Raiders as well as play the game and give it a demo for yourself.

As with the other games from Ares within this wheelhouse the miniatures are completely pre-painted and ready to go out of the box. If you're playing as the humans you'll also get to use the ace pilot Apollo too for a bit of a neat spin on the game once you've got used to the basic mechanics.

Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles Raider - Ares Games

You can start out with a Quickstart version of the rules from within the box which gets you used to flying your ships and then venture forth to delve into the more intricate mechanics of the game. This includes learning all about different pilot abilities, manoeuvres and flying through more cluttered spacescapes.

The game also comes with these awesome control panels!

For those who are wondering about the theme for the game, it will be drawing on both the classic version of Battlestar Galactica (which I actually watched!) and the Reimagined series which practically took over TV a few years ago now.

There is going to be a lot more coming down the pipeline so watch this space!

What would you like to see them do with this property?
