Announced earlier this year (see “Miniatures Game Based on ‘Fallout’ Video Game Series Announced”), Fallout: Wasteland Warfare lifts the characters and setting from Bethesda Softwork’s Fallout video game series and transports them to the tabletop. Using highly-detailed 32mm sculpted miniatures, players compete in a series of missions to earn Nuka Cola caps, which can then be used to upgrade their factions and settlements. Upgrades grant access to improved gear and other advantages for future missions. The game is designed so it can be played solo, cooperatively, or head-to-head.
At launch, there will be five categories of products in the line:
Faction Core Sets offer a starting point for players that want to collect an army from a specific faction. Three Faction Core Sets will be offered in the initial launch, including the Brotherhood of Steel, Super Mutants, and Survivors factions. Each set has from 6 to 8 high quality plastic miniatures with scenic bases, supplied unpainted and with some assembly required. All of the cards required to use the figures are also included. MSRP is $52.99 per set.
Iconic characters from the video game will appear in Character Expansions, each with three miniatures on scenic bases and game cards. The first wave will include two sets for each faction, with an MSRP of $26.99 each.
See the gallery below for images of the miniatures for the new game.
Modiphius has started accepting direct pre-orders for the game and the first wave of expansions, with a promotional offer for an exclusive Nuka Cola Girl model and expansion. In-store pre-orders will be accepted starting in November for the retail launch planned for March. The launch will be supported by an Organize Play program, a demo program, and other retailer support efforts including an on-line retailer locator.
Modiphius is not the only company producing games based on the Fallout property. Fantasy Flight Games has announced Fallout: The Board Game, scheduled to release before the end of the year (see “FFG Readies ‘Fallout: The Board Game’”).
