Armour, or is it Protection…?


Bit of a faux-pa on my end of things – it looks like a few references to Protection (which has been renamed as Armour in From Ashes 0.0.9 onwards) appears to have slipped-the-net in the Sol Enclaves, Devin Pact and Verse Dominion Acquisition Rosters. Suffice to say that these have all been corrected.

A little preview of this week’s releases

With the upcoming From Ashes 0.0.9 release, each faction will be getting an updated Acquisition Roster which details the units they can use in their games.

The Sol Enclaves in particular are perhaps the most customisable faction, as you can choose to join one of the Primary Powers. This gives you access to their technologies and abilities, and as a result, their vehicles can be customised with the sponsor’s upgrades. This means that one Sol Enclave faction can play completely differently to another, with vehicles taking on different appearances to match.

Not only can Sol Enclaves now get access to SFA and Verse Dominion (well, Devin Pact) upgrades, but on the 23rd two new factions throw in to the ring, providing their allies with brand new technologies and weapon systems.

The Xeraak Triarchy Upgrade Set offers the powerful Plasma Repeater Turret to provide the host vehicle with a potent plasma weapon capable of defending the vehicle from close assaults, or just simply used to boost the vehicle’s firepower. The Shield Generator is exactly what it says on the tin and provides boosted protective capabilities to the host vehicle. Anvils which have joined the Xeraak Triarchy (or to use their correct sub-faction name, the Union of the Advancing Dawn) can replace their main cannons with a fast-firing Plasma Cannon which is capable of melting any target on the battlefield. Not only that, but the Meta Overseer from the Xeraak Triarchy range will also be available, which when attached to an infantry squad, provides a protective shield and an ability to boost nearby Leaders capabilities quite considerably.

On the other side of things we have the KFR, or Kymeron Free Republic, Vehicle Upgrade Set. The Laser Turret is another defence weapon but due to its onboard AI can quickly identify and engage multiple targets at once, making it one of the best counter-assault weapons in the game. Perhaps the most curious upgrade of all is the AI Core which provides the host vehicle an onboard artificial intelligence capable of shielding the vehicle from harm or expending its energies to temporarily take control and reroll a failed Discipline test when needed, which when combined with the Sol Enclave Freemen of the Republic sub-faction special rule Phoenix Protocols gives them a real edge in combat. Last, but by no means least, is the Laser Cannon Anvil upgrade which, while proving extremely accurate laser fire, can also be combined with any laser turrets on the vehicle to create a powerful laser beam capable of destroying anything in its path.

Not only that, but all Sol Enclaves forces all get access to the new Sol Enclaves Vehicle Upgrade Set 2, which includes the Optics and Tank Commander upgrades. The Optics increase the host vehicles of first hit probabilities if it has not moved, whereas the Tank Commander can lead spearhead assaults where friendly vehicles can activate alongside

Be sure to check back and customise your fleet of Sol Enclave vehicles!

These will be available on August 23rd along with the new Verse Dominion Taurus APC, updated From Ashes rules and the new Xeraak Triarchy previews.

Void Scar stuff in August

Hi all,

This coming August is one of Void Scars busiest times of year. We’ve got the exciting Britcon event on the weekend of 11-13th of August (and is incidentally my birthday too!) where you can get your hands on the new Taurus APC ahead of time. Also on the Friday evening, the event organisers have kindly offered the gaming area for folks to come along to, so I thought I’d stick around and play some From Ashes in the evening if anyone would like to join me from about 5pm onwards (I’ll bring spare armies too).

Secondly, Leadbelt Games Arena have kindly agreed to host another From Ashes Gaming Day on Saturday the 19th of August, 11am onwards, where we can have lots of fun yet again smashing our armies together.

Lastly, but by no means least, it’s going to be Void Scar Birthday! From Ashes 0.0.9 will be available for download on the 23rd, along with updated Acquisition Rosters and some new units too. There might even be the odd preview of the new Xeraak Triarchy if you’re good…

You can find out more about these events via the link below.

Can’t wait to see you all there!

Verse Dominion Taurus APC preview!

The Verse Dominion will receive reinforcements next month in the form of the Taurus APC. Across the battlefields of Damnya, commanders of the crusades have been demanding a way to transport their infantry hordes across the battlefield protected under armour. APCs scavenged from other factions haven’t quite fit the bill, but the new Taurus is a Verse Dominion commander’s dream. Adapted from the heavily armoured Rhino chassis, the Taurus APC’s large crew compartment can easily accommodate Vanguard Infantry Cohorts, getting them across no-man’s land before dismounting and getting stuck-in, up close and personal. Not only that, but the Pintle HMG, Heavy Smoke Rocket and Shock Field can harass nearby enemies on the approach who’d try to prevent the Taurus and its troopers from achieving their holy mission.

The Taurus APC will be available from August 23rd on Void Scar Day, along with its rules for download. If you can make it to Britcon in Nottingham, August 11-13, you can get these fantastic yet brutish transports ahead of time.


From Ashes 0.0.9 Acquisition Roster updates ahoy!

Hi guys!

With From Ashes version 0.0.9 on the horizon, today I thought I’d briefly mention what you can expect to see from the Acquisition Rosters for each army which will be coming alongside. Each has a few updates, and of course are made to be compatible with the last version of the main rules, but perhaps Sol Enclaves sees the most changes to bring them in-line with two future factions the Xeraak Triarchy and the Kymeron Free Republic. Don’t worry though, the others will still get some lovin’ too!

Scaryn Federated Alliance aka SFA

  • New Anti-Tank Squad
  • Updated Doctrines

Devin Pact

  • Ringleader and Preacher upgrades for Vanguard

Verse Dominion

  • Ringleader and Preacher upgrades for Vanguard
  • NEW Taurus APC

Sol Enclaves

  • Big overhaul to Freemen of the Republic and Union of the Advancing Dawn Doctrines
  • NEW vehicles upgrades to enable you to customise your Sol Enclave vehicles to better suit whichever sponsor you’ve decided to adopt. For example, Member of the Alliance vehicles can now take SFA vehicle upgrades. There are also some brand new upgrades themed around the KFR and Xeraak Triarchy, such as the Plasma Shield Generator and AI Core.
  • NEW Anvil weapon upgrades. Like above, your Anvils can be upgraded with brand new weapon systems inspired by their allies. Two are old favourites such as the Heavy Railgun and the Shock Cannon, but there’s also two completely new weapons – the Laser Cannon and the Plasma Cannon.

Plus various other minor improvments along the way. Remember if you’d like to contribute to future updates, swing by the From Ashes Gaming Facebook group and add your two-penneth!

Well, that’s pretty much it for now – be sure to keep an eye on the Void Scar Miniatures page for new updates on From Ashes version 0.0.9 coming in August.

Oh and one last thing – here’s a little preview of the new vehicle upgrades for you to feast your eyes upon…
