Upcoming Releases: Operation Damocles Campaign book and a sneak peak!

Hey everyone,

It is now official! Rackham will be releasing a seperate compilation of the Operation: Damocles missions from Cry Havoc magazine soon. Here is a picture of the cover...

This book will be 64 pages of full color goodness and it will also include 6 exclusive cards. There are no details about what these cards might be but I am guessing they are probably the cards for things like "Propoganda" and "UNSS Battleaxe" along with the other cards released in the Cry Havocs to represent various game effects. There are also supposed to be rules for playing the Karmans in the campaign as well as the new errata!

Overall, I think that this will be a great addition to the AT-43 line up. Not everyone was able to get the Cry Havocs that cover the game and this will finally let anyone who is interested pick it up and give it a try. It also doesn't sound like there will be a bunch of material that people need to play the game (a good example is the Errata which is already available for free online) so that people who aren't interested don't have to get this book. Already have the rules for the campaign? No problem! You can pass on this one and save up for Frostbite, though I am planning on getting it just because I like the idea of having all of the rules gathered in one spot. Less to forget at the Shop then as well. : )

As an added plus, here is the latest concept picture for the COGS! This is the original image just to give you an idea of how the three compare to each other for scale.

Here is a closer look at the first picture (which I am guessing will be a type I infantry)...

and the second picture (thinking type II for this one)...

and finally the third picture (which I think is the type III. funny how that works, isn't it?).

No details have been released yet, but going by the pictures they seem to have no problem with close combat (note the swords that the two on the left are carrying). It should be very interesting to see where they go with this race and as soon as more information becomes available I will get it posted.

That is all for now, but come back soon for the latest Battle Report (Therians vs. Karmans in the first of our Operation: Damocles battles!) and also for more pics from GTS of the DUST miniatures. Until then, may all your dice come up Dragons!
