I have no idea what it is but those look like some fantastic new models.

It looks like some sort of board game but I'll bet they make rules for whatever it is for 40K. Pretty sweet looking stuff.

Disco combat in a dark future?

Looking like it's a board game, like Necromunda and Shadespire.

It looks like it could be either a board game or miniatures game. Necromunda is a miniatures game packaged as a board game but it isn't really a board game.

Interesting…. Disco combat indeed (strange choice of sound track)… We shall see.

For those interested in the original 40K Rogue Trader game: Nordic Weasel is producing a 'retro clone' called 'Renegade Scout' with some content now available at Wargames Vault.

I'm not diggin' the miniatures shown above, but I might give something like "40K underworlds: Rogue Trader Spire" a whirl, just for kicks, if it catches on… seems like a logical step for GW.

Very nice. Granted hasn't Nurgle gotten enough love at this point?

It would be good to see the other Chaos powers getting in on the action. Also space pirates and not necessarily the (Dark) Eldar or Ork variety.

This is awesome!

What….is this a Netflix show?

Gotta love the retro sci fi look of the imperials….

I note they received a Cease and Desist from the Emperor's Holy Inquisition for the heretical funky music. ;)

Liking the Imperial miniatures. No idea why they didn't do characterful stuff like that when the RPG came out. I an see the guardsmen turning up in 30K forces…

The Flash Gorgon look is nifty, but I'm not sure how it fits into the 40k motif. And yes, while the Nurglesque guys are cool-looking, they really should have taken the opposition in another direction.

Much better would have been an equally characterful contingent of chaos renegades- a disparate space-hulk crew of (Chaos Undivided) marines, beastmen, human dregs, spawn, and an unusual looking dreadnought. Go a bit "Space Crusade" with it.

The tooling may have been cost prohibitive to produce more. Maybe they went as far as they could, whilst keeping an eye on the ROI?

Capt Flash12 May 2018 10:39 a.m. PST

As an aside-
Anyone know if that Space Crusade box art is available as a poster anywhere?

Personal logo The Beast Rampant Supporting Member of TMP12 May 2018 1:16 p.m. PST

I wanted that thing SO BAD when it was released- I never laid eyes on a copy. When Ebay came around, I snagged some of the plastic baddies.

Durrati12 May 2018 4:58 p.m. PST

Its odd, not interested in this game at all. But if someone released a kickstarter about a game of disco combat in a dark future I would probably be all over it……

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP12 May 2018 6:51 p.m. PST

I heard it will be out for 1 week, then they'll double the price for a second week, then they'll pull it from production!

Capt Flash12 May 2018 8:46 p.m. PST

Hahaha! Uesugi Kenshin- that's quite a rumor, bud

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP14 May 2018 8:30 a.m. PST

I'm glad you got the "lol" nature of the post Capt.

Capt Flash14 May 2018 2:05 p.m. PST

Space Crusade was my gateway drug, got some very fond memories of that game..
