Preparation for the online Gates of Antares campaign is moving into overdrive as we prepare for imminent arrival of the first narrative supplement book – The Battle for Xilos – available to Pre-Order from today!
Battle for Xilos narrative supplement
Once again penned by game author Rick Priestley, the Battle For Xilos continues the events from the main rulebook – triggered by the discovery of the planet of Xilos.
The book describes, in the form of an exciting and continuing narrative, the struggle for control of the planet and the ancient builder tech hidden beneath its surface – and includes a campaign system featuring a series of scenarios which cover the different stages of the battle for Xilos, from the initial landings to… well, we’ll come onto that… with a cool system for gathering campaign victory points and fielding some of the strange builder tech artefacts that your forces will capture along the way!
Packed with new rules!
Battle for Xilos also includes a whole raft of new content – including rules for including allies and mercenaries in your force as well as new army lists for the Ghar Outcast Rebels, and the mercenary forces of the Freeborn Adventurers and Boromite Clans, not to mention a host of special characters, new troop types, new weapons and vehicles, and some rather scary native creatures.
- 6 New Scenarios.
- Complete Campaign System, inclusive of force and character progression.
- Rules on how to build your own characters.
- New rules for incorporating allies either by combining forces or with mercenaries.

‘The Battle for Xilos – The Builders Awake’ continues the narrative featured in the Xilos Horizon Starter set, and the launch is supported by a massive multi-player online campaign in conjunction with our friends at Beasts of War. What’s more – the online campaign will give you the chance to shape the history of the Antares universe (more about this to come soon, keep an eye on the Tuesday IMTel newsletter!).
Naturally we’ll be bringing out a whole raft of models so you can field all these new recruits and enemies on your battlefields! You can spot a few of them in the pictures below… the book sees new characters, weapons, troop types, vehicles and weapons for all factions.
It’s no exaggeration to say that this will take the Antares universe to a whole new level this June 2016!
