Imperial Assault

Another announcement from GenCon...

http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_n...?eidn=4994

   

Quote:Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Imperial Assault, a Star Wars board game of cinematic adventure and tactical combat for two to five players!

Imperial Assault casts you and your friends into the climatic events following the Death Star’s destruction above Yavin 4, and offers two full game experiences within the Star Wars universe. In the campaign game, you and up to four other friends play a series of thrilling missions woven together in a narrative campaign, and in the skirmish game, you and your opponent muster your own strike teams and battle head-to-head over conflicting objectives.

Two Games in One

The first game included in Imperial Assault is the campaign game, which allows up to five players to enter the Star Wars universe through a narrative story composed of linked missions. One player commands the armed forces of the Galactic Empire, while up to four others play as heroes of the Rebellion, engaging in covert operations and missions. Both the forces of the Empire and the Rebel heroes gain new skills and items throughout the campaign, allowing characters to develop and grow as the story unfolds.

Imperial Assault offers a completely distinct game experience in the skirmish game. Skirmish missions allow you and a friend to compete in head-to-head, tactical combat. You’ll muster your own teams of Imperial, Rebel, and Mercenary forces, and build decks of Command cards, which you can play to gain an unexpected advantage. Each skirmish mission has its own objectives. Whether you recover lost holocrons, or battle to defeat a raiding party, you’ll find danger and tense, tactical choices in every skirmish.

might have been tidier to rename the section just star wars.
Star Wars Legion - Rebels
Guildball - Alchemists
Blood Bowl - Lizardmen

Business is booming for them. At their GenCon session today they said they've seen growth of more than 25% annually since 2000.

Also caught limited mention from GenCon of a Star Wars: X-Wing "Mission Control" online system for managing X-Wing squadrons. Free and live in a few weeks apparently.

Its not out till christmas time JJ, should be available from most wargaming retailers.

I'm sure myself, Stu or Gaz will post something more concrete when it appears on release date. Do know it is supposed to be $100, So probably £65-70 before any discounts.
