Ares Games has revealed the second wave of Spaceship Packs for its Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles game, which will include three versions of the Colonial Raptor and three versions of the Cylon Heavy Raider, all releasing in August.

Intended for use with Ares’ licensed miniatures-based board game (see “First Details on ‘Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles’”), each Spaceship Pack features one pre-painted and pre-assembled miniature spaceship plus the spaceship card, gaming base, maneuver deck, and pilot cards needed to use the ship in the game. 

The Colonial Raptor is a slower vessel designed for recon and support missions, and comes in three versions:  The SAR/ECM is equipped with upgraded sensors for search-and-rescue missions; the Assault/Combat has been fitted with additional armaments to act as a gunship; and the Boomer version features the ship piloted by Raptor ace Sharon “Boomer” Valerii. MSRP is $16.90.

The Cylon Heavy Raider is a self-aware craft that can also be piloted by a Centurion or human-form Cylon, also with three versions:  The Combat/Transport sports extra armor and can transport Centurions; the Veteran version has upgraded weapons for ship-to-ship and ship-to-ground combat; while the Captured version allows players to represent the ship piloted by Boomer’s clone Sharon as either a Colonial or Cylon ship. MSRP is $24.90.
