So now I just need a good idea for alternative heads or additional headgear for the Marionettes (for a more Samurai Robot look)

turning those:

That's why somebody needs to do a decent hard plastic, modern scale samurai infantry kit- so we can kitbash together all of our musha mechs.

I still hope these are a little bit larger than the dreadball ones. Heck if it was up to me they'd be on 40mm bases. Sumo lizards need GIRTH.

The 3 specialists are available separately for £9.99 each direct from Mantic but the full Faction starter is £29.99 and is the only way to get the leader so it's a better deal. It's a pity they didn't do a bundle of the resins only as I already have all the Asterian parts.

On the topic of alternate parts for Warpath bits, I was never a fan of that tiny window in the nose of the Enforcer interceptor / bomber so I made an alternative that can be 3D printed. You can download it from here:

Have there been any rumors of another yearly book for Deadzone this year? I never picked up Escalation, but I don't want to do it now if its going to be replaced in a few months.

Is the magazine any good?
I’ve never read one, and don’t even get WD anymore.

Might be worth a one off read (I don’t really do any historical, but like the look of some ww2 stuff, not that this issue seems to have any).
But otherwise it’s just half price abyssals. For £3 I’d just grab it, but as I have no use for the models specifically.. would be good if it’s an ok read too

We’re kicking things (or should that be launching the ball) with DreadBall. We realise it’s been a while since we’ve had any new DB releases, so in 2021 we’re going all out with a brand-new supplement and miniatures. This will all be bundled together as the Galactic Tour: Magnetar Circuit.

Inside this collection of DreadBall awesome sauce, you’ll find a new supplement, cards, tokens, three new support assistants and an MVP/ref. We’ll dive into each of these in more detail below.


The Magnetar Circuit supplement will include:

Rules for three new support assistants
Four new themed pitches on different planets: Cavlax VI (swamp pitch), New Atlantea (underwater pitch), Ovostar-2 (sky pitch) and Memphis Max (casino)
New card deck with special cards for each pitch
Tokens for each pitch
Historic matches on each of the four pitches
Errata for existing teams


The errata for the existing teams is one of the most exciting elements. Since launch the DreadBall RC and Mantic have been keeping a close eye on the performance of teams. Any that we felt were a little bit below the curve have been given a small tweak to help them perform better on the pitch. The lists in the supplement will be considered as the tournament legal teams once released.

Plus there seems to be a new scifi sportsgame in playtesting, rumored to be a wrestling game with Starplayers.
Would be really cool to have something else to use your MVPs for. They are so criminally underused aside a handful obvious ones (buzzcut for example).

If the new book has the same satirical edge as previous Dreadball books, I’m in for that. The miniatures are also fantastic for Sci fi or superhero conversions.

Are there any great background books that have come out in the last year? I was waiting in the RPG for Pannithor but I’d be interested in reading more about Deadzone.

DREADBALL – MAGNETAR CIRCUIT
2021 is a BIG year for DreadBall because we’ve got a brand-new supplement – the Magnetar Circuit. This has actually been something we’ve been discussing for a long-time here at Mantic and we’re delighted to finally see the release on the horizon.

Inside you’ll find four new arenas (which we’ll go into in a moment), new Support Specialists, new historic matches and an errata for all the previously published teams… including Renton’s Rejects. First up, let’s reveal a little more about those arenas!

CAVLAX VI (SWAMP PITCH) – this takes place on a dangerous planet where vines can grow across the pitch. What’s more, the bad reputation of the arena means it’s harder to attract the crowds, so it’s going to be tough to rack up the cheers!

NEW ATLANTEA (UNDERWATER PITCH) – ever wondered what it would be like to play DreadBall underwater? Well, New Atlantea is the answer! On this pitch you’ll have to deal with changing currents that can affect the game in different ways each Rush.

OVOSTAR-2 (SKY PITCH) – as if DreadBall wasn’t already dangerous enough, what if you were playing dozens of kilometres in the sky? Oh… and there’s nothing to stop players falling to their death off the edge. Thankfully BrenMed Industries is on-hand to give Players a free cryorevision… and sometimes Players even come back alive (mostly).

MEMPHIS MAX (CASINO PITCH) – teams always need a lot of cash to stay competitive, so the option to earn some extra funds through gambling is always a welcome opportunity. However, you’ll need to watch out for Thoth, a new ref that likes to keep a close eye on illegal plays.

For each of these new arenas, we’ve put together a historic match featuring some classic teams. Therefore, if you want to see how you would have fared in some of the greatest matches ever – make sure you pick up this supplement.

TEAMS ERRATA
One of the most exciting elements of Magnetar Circuit is that ALL the published teams are re-printed in the book. The rules committee and Mantic have also been going through the teams to see which ones needed a bit of love and attention *cough* Veer-myn *cough*

Even if your favourite team hasn’t been changed, having all the stats in a slightly smaller book is going to make it a lot easier to carry around, particularly when attending tournaments – assuming they can ever happen again.

We really want a supplement like Magnetar Circuit to become a regular release – like Clash of Kings for Kings of War or Command Protocols for Deadzone – but for that we really need the support of DreadBall fans! So, please make sure you pre-order from your FLGS or direct from Mantic. In fact, we’re making the pre-orders live today on the Mantic site, so you can order right NOW. Like, literally this second. We’ll be back closer to release with gameplay videos of the arenas and the Support Specialists, so you can see how it shakes up the game!


MAGNETAR MARVELS
As well as the new supplement, you can also pre-order the new miniatures.


The Magnetar Marvels set features all three Support Specialists and Thoth the MVP/ref. They’re made in beautiful resin, so those details are going to be CRISP. You can pre-order here. It’s worth it, just for Flurple.


LAST HURRAH MVPS
Finally, have you read The Last Hurrah by Robert E. Waters? It’s the new DreadBall novel from Winged Hussar Publishing. Here’s the blurb:

Ex Corporation Striker Leeland Roth teeters on the horns of a dilemma: return to the sport that once defined his life, or continue to drown his sorrows in booze, babes, and back alleys. The choice is not as simple as it may seem, for Roth cannot shake the crippling guilt that plagues him day after day. But a new opportunity has arisen, and the lure of the spotlight, the drama, the fans, and the money, may bring him out of the shadows.

Roth must now cobble together a team of nobodies and coach them to glory in a thirty-two-team tournament that promises big rewards for the winner. Along the way, he will face a battalion of dangers: death, injury, Digby corruption, corporate greed, familial hatreds, bribery, rebellion, and even the limitations of his own abilities as a coach. Can this former DreadBall star rise to the occasion, or will this be his last hurrah?

As a little treat for those that have read it, the DreadBall RC has created stat cards for two of the novels’ stars, which you can use in your games!

So, as you can see, plenty to get excited about for DreadBall in 2021. Have you order the supplement yet? What about now? Now? NOOOOW?
