Antares

Warlord Games has three new weapon team kits for the Freeborn and Concord factions in Beyond the Gates of Antares. Let’s take a look!

The Freeborn are mercenaries that seek profit and gain for their services in conflicts across Antarean space. The Concord is controlled by a sentient machine intelligence that will respond to any threat will a swift and deadly ruthlessness. The latest releases for these two factions are weapons teams that come armed with plasma or fractal weaponry and are perfect for any supporting action.

Freeborn Support Team with Fractal Cannon: $20

Fractal weapons are primarily used for attacking static defences. They are relatively specialist weapons found in the arsenals of most Antarean forces but reserved for urban warfare where they are supremely useful. Fractal weapons utilise molecular resonance to break apart solid material.

Although slow to develop full power, their ability to break apart buildings and machines is almost limitless. They are also known as fractal disintegrators. The fractal cannon is the smallest of these machines and the most readily mobile, but it is correspondingly less powerful that the larger ‘siege’ weapons.

Freeborn Support Team with Plasma Cannon: $20

The plasma cannon is the hardest hitting light support weapon available to any force in Antarean space and frequently used to arm ‘Hunter’ type weapon drones. The plasma cannon is the ultimate light support weapon. It is calibrated to deliver a single very strong pulse, for which an especially long plasma coil is required. All plasma weapons have a defect inherent in plasma coils in that they gradually weaken over time.

This problem is normally overcome by the weapon’s own self‐repair facility. In the case of the plasma cannon, the weapon is so powerful that its battlefield performance can sometimes be affected, causing temporary plasma fade.

Concord C3D2 medium support drone with plasma light support: $16

The D2 medium support drone is a more heavily built vehicle than the D1 and eminently suitable as a weapons carrier. Its composite shell provides excellent all-round protection and carries a highly effective kinetic shield.

D2s are used both to support other troops and as the basis of drone formations alongside the bigger combat drones. The D2’s weapon mount is capable of bearing a number of different weapons but is usually armed with either plasma light support or plasma cannons.

Scale: 28mm
2 Drones

These kits are available now to order online or at your FLGS.
