Now released, the first of our boxed army deals for Beyond the Gates of Antares are heading out into the eager hands of players and hobbyists across the globe!
Ghar Empire Starter Army
The Ghar – Created in ages past as soldiers in an ancient war, the details of which are long forgotten even by the Ghar themselves. Their distant ancestors were undoubtedly human but they have mutated into twisted, spiteful and pitiless creatures driven by an unquenchable hatred of all humankind.
Ghar were created to ﬁght in their formidable battle armour, enclosed within its metal shell and connected to its mechanical systems by neural plugs in their spines. The Ghar creature itself is small and feeble, compensating for this by being quick and nimble – partly a result of its diminutive size.
Build your Battle Group for the Ghar Empire with this Starter Army containing:
- 2x Plastic Battle Squad (3 walkers each) – (368 points)
- Plastic Assault Squad (3 walkers) – (184 points)
- Metal Ghar Outcast Squad (6) with Disruptor Cannon – (67 points)
- Metal Ghar Flitter shard (4) – (20 points)
Build this army into a 750 point Skirmish Force by adding in your Army Options (page 159 Beyond the Gates Of Antares) and upgrading with squad options from the Ghar Army List (Page 168-171).
Concord Combined Command Starter Army
The military of the Panhuman Concord is organised and directed by a branch of the IMTel called the Concord Combined Command – otherwise known as CoCom or more commonly as C3. The Concord responds to threats against it with logical ruthlessness, organising and dispatching heavily armed forces throughout Antarean space. The Concord armed forces are the most sophisticated and most powerful in all of Antarean space.
Concord forces are highly advanced and concord units form interconnected shards fed by spotter drones and sophisticated combat interfaces. Many of the roles undertaken by human troopers in other armies are performed by drones in Concord forces. These come in all shapes and sizes from small ‘buddy’ drones that accompany troops in battle to vast heavy combat drones bristling with weapons and protected by their own array of smaller drones carrying forcefields or acting as spotters.
Troopers are protected by extremely effective hyper-light armours and armed with plasma carbines capable of variable fire modes. Man for man there are few enemies that are their equal. Support drones provide them with a powerful mobile arsenal capable of facing the most heavily armoured enemies.
This Fantastic Starter Army provides you with all you need to take a Combat Force into combat and contains:
- Metal C3 Strike command team (3) – (110 points)
- 3x plastic C3 strike squad (inc 3 support drones) – (513 points)
- Metal C3 Drop Command Squad (with 2 extra men and a Spotter Drone) – (205 points)
- Metal C3 X-launcher team (2) Strike Trooper crew, Spotter – (50 points)
- Metal targeter probe shard (4) – (20 points)
Build this army into a 1000 point Combat Force by adding in your Army Options (page 159 Beyond the Gates Of Antares) and upgrading with squad options from the Concord Army List (Pages 160-167).
