Hereward Wargames Show!

Hi all!

Wow what a busy August it’s been. Not only the fantastic Britcon show, but it was Void Scar‘s Birthday too with plenty of exciting things to see. Well, we don’t stop there – this coming Sunday Sept 3rd is going to be the Hereward Wargames Show in Peterborough. It’ll be Void Scar’s first time there but really looking forward to coming along and chatting to everyone.

See you there!

Void Scar’s Birthday!

Hello everyone!

Today, as you may have guessed, is Void Scar Miniatures’ Birthday. To celebrate the occasion there’s been cake at Void Scar HQ, but more importantly, there’s other fun stuff for everyone!

Without further ado, let’s get started:

From Ashes 0.0.9 is now available from the From Ashes Ruled Downloads page. This is FREE to download so you can get stuck into your games of From Ashes straight away. It’s been in the making for many months now with plenty of playtesting going into it, and I’m sure you’ll agree it’s the best iteration of From Ashes yet. Again, the Acquisition Roster for each faction have been updated too and can be found in the From Ashes rules Downloads page – looks you’ve got a busy day ahead!

Next up, a little reminder that orders of £50 and over made between now and the 27th get a FREE Sol Enclave Anvil Tank Crew or a poster of your choice (while stocks last). I’ll drop you an email after your order to confirm which you’d like.

Also, there are several new products available from today:

Verse Dominion Taurus APC

Xeraak Triarchy Vehicle Upgrade Set

KFR Vehicle Upgrade Set

Sol Enclaves Anvil Laser Cannon

Sol Enclaves Anvil Plasma Cannon

Sol Enclaves Vehicle Upgrade Set 2

SFA Pathfinder Anti-Tank Squad

Xeraak Triarchy Meta Overseer infantry upgrade

Lastly, we have the following super-exciting previews of the next faction for From Ashes – the Xeraak Triarchy! These scientists-turned-conquerors have had to turn to their advanced technology to survive, building rank upon rank of cyborg thralls to do their bidding out in the Grey Zone. You can expect to see these models come-to-life later in the year.

Wow, I don’t know about you but that’s a lot of stuff to get your teeth into! What’s your favourite of the new releases, and also why not share with us which new Xeraak Triarchy unit you’re most looking forward to seeing ‘in the flesh’ (pun intended)?

Thanks for swinging by!

Today sees the result of an exciting collaboration between Void Scar Miniatures and White Dragon Miniatures – the Acquisiton Roster for using their range of stunning miniatures in From Ashes!

Preview – Verse Dominion armour incoming! The Rhino Assault Tank

The first armoured tank for the Verse Dominion has a little preview today. As you can see, it’s a real beefy beast, with a huge off-centre mounted cannon, an additional heavy rocket for engaging enemy vehicles, and of course a pintle machine gun for engaging close-in targets like infantry or even spitting lead at low-flying aircaft.

Keep an eye on this space and the Void Scar Miniatures Facebook page for more info on the Rhino’s release.

New From Ashes Skirmish set available!

Morning Commanders!

Today sees the release of the From Ashes Skirmish Set, allowing you to explore the From Ashes rules with a small force. This collection of miniatures and gaming peripherals will enable you and a friend to play out a small scale confrontation between the Verse Dominion and Scaryn Federated Alliance.

Get yours here, and don’t forget to join in the From Ashes Gaming Group on Facebook.

See you at the frontline, Commander!

Preview – Verse Dominion buggy stalks its prey – the Reaver Attack Buggy

The Verse Dominion are set to receive their first vehicle in the next few months – the Reaver Attack Buggy. This go-anywhere all terrain vehicle scouts ahead of the main Verse Dominion force, searching for enemy targets. Once it’s made contact, it can either report back to home base or engage with its chaingun or rocket launcher.

Keep an eye on this space and the Void Scar Miniatures Facebook page for more info on the Reaver’s release.

New releases – Verse Dominion Vanguard and Ringleaders

Today sees the release for the first couple of units from Void Scar Miniatures’ second faction – the Verse Dominion.

These mining slaves turned religious freedom fighters, some would say simple marauders, have set their sights on the Damnya Sector. Few will be able to stand against their righteous zeal as they crusade onwards, eager to bring their ways to the unwashed masses and hunt down their hated enemy and previous masters; the Frontier Guild.

The Vanguard are the various militia and tribal fighers drawn together from across Verse Dominion space. When not fighting each other, they unite and push beyound their own worlds in search of conquest and plunder. What they may lack in skill or equipment, they more than make up for with numbers and faith.This Vanguard Infantry set includes 16 riflemen in eight different poses, together with 4 RPG troopers in two different poses, totalling 20 models.

However, such a rabble needs controlling, which is where the Ringleader Command Squad comes in. The Ringleader himself uses his tribal rank and pure brutishness to order those around him into action. He is accompanied by a Preacher who’s there to remind the Vanguard of their religious convictions and overwhelm their foes in battle in a wave of charging bodies.

Sculpted by Vigilant 3D Art and painted by CB Miniature Painting Studio, these fantastic high-quality resin miniatures are available now from the Void Scar website through the links below. Like all Void Scar Miniatures infantry sets, these are available with or without rectangular bases.

Rules for using these models in your games of From Ashes are available on the From Ashes rules page.

From Ashes Beta rules are now available!

Hi good people – FREE rules ahoy!

I’m extremely excited to share with you today the From Ashes beta ruleset! These have been a long labour of love, with many hours of research, writing and playtesting going into them. They’re available from the Void Scar Miniatures website here:

For now, the rules are low image get-you-by PDFs enabling you to play with the current range of Void Scar Miniatures models.

The From Ashes game is a tactical, immersive sci-fi tabletop experience where your Squads must achieve their objectives yet still react to the ever-changing battlefield situation. It’s based on an alternative activation system, where each Squad is capable of carrying out one or more Commands each time they activate. When they are enagaged by the enemy, they can react, enabling them to shoot back, retreat or even advance on the enemy’s postion. A major focus of the game is the descision making, where you, as the army’s commander, need to decide upon the best course of action for your Squads between multiple options. Here’s just some of the things you can expect from a game of From Ashes:

-A D12 based alternative activation system which allows you to carefully carry out your battleplans while responding to the enemy’s.

-A focus on ranged combat, where the closer you are to the enemy the more damage you deal out. However, when bayonets are fixed, things do get bloody!

-Leaders order other Squads around the battlefield by ‘donating’ their own Commands, just make sure they’ve got the discipline to carry them out!-A flexible, fair approach to setting up and organising a game, where you can even select your Squads after you know which mission is being played.

-The abllity to react to your opponent’s attacks, carefully plan your strategies around inter-locking overwatch, or employ various special rules unique to your units.-Expansion Training module where you can play through several scenarios with a Pathfinder Riflemen Squad to get to grips with the rules by yourself.

-Expansion OPFOR module where you can play against a force controlled by the game and is ideal for solo or cooperative play experiences.There’s three documents available now on the VSM website:

-The main From Ashes rules.

-The Scaryn Federated Alliance Acqusition Roster.

-The Chosen Guard Acquisition Roster.

Right now, there’s a From Ashes Gaming Group where you can discuss the rules, meet other players and generally be involved in this exciting new game system!
