    Default New BSG rules expansion pack in development

    https://www.beastsofwar.com/project/...EP3AVHSRw-Sqr8

    Our first “rules & components” BSG-SB expansion is going to include a number of new game features:

    a more sophisticated FTL system
    rules for missiles (both regular and nuclear)
    rules for larger planetoids
    atmospheric combat
    take-offs and landing

    All rules are now in place, we are at work (as you see from the photo) on prototyping the physical components for our next playtests!

    New and shiny. WGF/WGS is old hat. BSG will probably bring in more younger players, and then we bring them over to the Dark Side of Wings.

    There are many copies. And we have a plan!

    A pity some of these weren't in the main rules from the start (missiles particularly). And I'm surprised the rules are being developed now. Developing key new rules "after the fact" risks them having a bolt-on feel that isn't quite coherent. There have been a number of rules in the past, published by increments, where that's happened.

    Only if there are wings to buy (with rules packs).

    Ares Games have announced that the new expansion packs Faster than Light and Additional Counter Set will be coming in January 2021!

    Awesome! An almost-Christmas present. The extra counter pack is a welcome addition to the line.

    I now have a lot more ships than one set of counters can manage, and although I was considering another Basic Set, I haven't gotten into the idea of repainting ships. Yet.

    Has anyone gotten their ships on a table recently? COVID has really slammed tabletop get-togethers. Three local convention dates have drifted past, and another BottosCon date is going to drift past soon, with no gathering of gamers. So sad...

    Starting another rumor...

    Note this was the planned release schedule pre-COVID-19:

    About new ships - the roll out goes like:
    - Viper Mk II, Raiders, Control Panels : March
    - Heavy Raider, Raptor: June/July
    - Viper Mk VII, Classic Viper, Classic Raider: August/October
    - Large Ships (Galactica, Cylon Basestar): 2020
    2020 will also see more non-large ships of course, but at the moment I cannot be more precise than this.
    Link: BSG Upcoming Releases for Ships as of Feb 2019

    Going by this, there is some possibility of getting Classic Vipers and Raiders next year (not officially, that's my speculation).

    Great news on rules expansion and additional counter sheets. Definitely a must buy for me.

    Yeah, haven't put them on the table for some time since all conventions have been cancelled. Guess I should try out the solo rules!

    Classic Viper and Classic Raider are quite ahead in production and shipping. No official word about those yet, but I am very optimistic that it won't be long.

    Want!

    Want Now!

    I'll just have to wait a bit, I suppose, but I will definitely be getting these.

    Thanks for the heads up, David.
