Urban Mammoth is pleased to announce details of their May 2012 releases for the Urban War Second Edition sci-fi skirmish game. March will bring new units for the Viridian, Syntha and VASA factions of Urban War and expand the battlefield with a new armoured battlesuit and a sinister new Syntha Biomech.

Viridian Urban Interdict Sergeant Price: TBA Code 13147
The Urban Interdict corps are specialists trained for fast combat insertion behind enemy lines. Equipped with a sophisticated gravchute and rugged, shock absorbing drop harness these soldiers often arrive to the battlefield from the air, jumping from low flying craft to open another front of fire against the enemy or strike weak points to their rear. This versatility makes them ideal for deep strikes, search and rescue, and interdiction and disruption missions.

Image

Syntha Medusa Class Biomech Price: TBA Code 13333
Strangest by far of the new class of cyber-­augmented biomechs is the Medusa. Alien in form, the Medusa is more machine than flesh, its human torso mounted atop an articulated tail like that of a snake. On the battlefield the Medusa is smoothly and eerily quiet as it swoops and leaps around on the battlefield. Suspended in a bubble of null-g provided by its gravpack, its bladed tail provides both balance and enhanced close combat capability.

Image

VASA KV72 Wolverine Price: TBA Code: 13727
KV72s are large heavily armoured battlesuits. The two most commonly seen variants are the MKII Wolverine close assault model, and the MKIV Starfire infantry support model. Though configured for different battlefield roles, both these models are equipped with powerful cesti, making them valuable armoured assault assets.

Piloted by experienced ex-­suppressors, the lumbering KV72s provide solid backup for the swifter and more lightly equipped elements in a VASA force.


Urban Mammoth is the producer of games and miniatures such as Warheads and the Urban War Second Edition sci-fi skirmish game.

UM have occasionally had some nice figures in the past. But generally not a fan of the company and none of the factions especially appealed to me. No one else down my local club is playing it so will give it a ass.

Cheers

James

The company already has me so I don't think it needs another one :-) Thanks for the offer though :-)

HEY OH!

Are the new rules going to be free PDFs or are they still planning on charging for them?

The Quick Start rules are available as a free PDF download as are the stat cards for the starter sets. The rules themselves are not free and I don't think there are plans to release them for free.

Any word on the 6mm models/game they were toying with last year?

The game is still being designed but we won't be doing promos of it for a while yet.

Version 3 of the rules is available for download from the forums
