Wizkids have been showing off some of the models we can expect to see in upcoming OP events. Attending Spiel at Essen, Brueckenkopf Online have been kind enough to post some pictures of the product on display.
In month 3 (November), every participant will be given a pack of coloured pegs and bases. These will be useful to differentiating same-ship/same-captain models on opposing sides, but I think they would also be handy for marking your flagship, once we get the resource prize in month 4 (card also shown below).
Some surprising news has arrived regarding what will happen following the Dominion event. The previewed wave 4 and Borg ‘coming soon’ imagery had us thinking the event would be followed by a Borg-centric event. It may well do so, but not before these web episode events it seems.
Also, take note of the change from 12 to 10 player support, despite maintaining 3 prizes.
The official Wizkids blog has been showing off some of the next ships and full detail of the cards in the ship expansions. Previously, I showed the 4 expansions due in wave 1:
- U.S.S. Defiant Expansion Pack (Federation) – preview
- I.K.S. Kronos One Expansion Pack (Klingon) – preview
- I.R.W. Praetus Expansion Pack (Romulan) – preview
- 5th Wing Patrol Ship 6 Expansion Pack (Dominion – preview
On October 16th, the first wave arrives for Star Trek Attack Wing. Calling it the first wave has confused a few people, as there was 8 ship expansions available upon launch of the core set. I refer to them as wave 0 as a result (as does Board Game Geek).
What can we expect in wave 1? Considering the first 4 waves have been revealed, we have a pretty concise answer. There are 4 ships – one for each faction currently in the game.
Star Trek Attack Wing has blindsided me. A chance stock preview from my local store really grabbed my attention – the Attack Wing release wave.
I am a big fan of all things Sci-Fi, Star Trek very much included, so I was naturally drawn to this image. The models reminded me of the old Micro Machines (which I dashed off to go and find in the loft!). I wasn’t even aware of previous Star Trek games from Wizkids. Here’s a classic Micro Machines Warbird (middle) next to the WIzkids’ model.
