Thanks. One more question, do the Jackals have background material yet? The Broken article on the Maelstrom's Edge website mentions Jackal Warlords, and there's mention of them above, but I did not find anything else.

Not yet, other than the occasional mention elsewhere. We have very firm plans for where they're going as a sub-faction, but it will likely be a while before they make it onto the table.

Add in the old school Growlers... That's what I'm doing. Your game is a nice divergence from others...

Following stealthily on the heels of the Revolutionary Captain comes another new model release for the Broken - The Sniper!










Broken Snipers originate either as marksmen from a planetary military that is displaced by the Maelstrom or pulled from within the ranks of the SARA and trained when it is noticed that they display a high level of accuracy with their rifle. Unfortunately, the Broken simply do not have the types of training facilities that other factions have access to, nor the manufacturing and technology in place to produce state of the art high-powered sniper rifles. All of which means that, one-on-one, Broken Snipers will never be a direct match with their foes. Therefore, the role of a Sniper focuses more on being a jack of all trades thorn in the enemy’s side.









A Sniper amongst the Broken is an immensely valuable battlefield tool and therefore Broken commanders commission their weaponsmiths to produce custom, high-end weapons and tech for their Snipers, so as to give them a fighting chance on the battlefield. Though each Sniper has a slight variation in their kit, their basics usually entail a cloak with powered optical and anti-radar camouflage, along with a drum-fed sniper rifle, which is able to switch on the fly between several different custom-made specialty ammunition types.



As with all Broken, Snipers are the master of stealth, and their ability to pick the right ammunition type to most punish their target before disappearing into the mists before the enemy can return fire in earnest makes them one of the most loathed foes in the spiral arm.









The Broken Sniper is a plastic kit on a single sprue, and is supplied with a 32mm plastic base.

Fantastic model and it's good to see this kind of multilayer plastics in Medge.

Really awesome! Kinda scared of that teeny unipod arriving unbroken, though. He could find great use in lots of other game systems as well!

He’ll go well with my Soviet-hatted commander.


Now they just need an Anthropoid wolfman nemesis.

Oh I like that!

The electric tracery coming out from the cloak is an interesting take on camo-cloak tech.


Any word on a 2nd Ed. starter box?

If that sniper is broken, is a nerf incoming?

Yes, nerf rounds will be added to the three existing ammo options.

Nah, the whole faction is broken. We'll just have to make everything else more powerful to compensate...

It's slender, but hasn't been a problem on any of the sprues I've seen so far.

There won't be a single starter set for V2. We're planning to release the rulebook by itself, in hardcover and digitally, and then each faction will get a 'starter' box, which will include a small plastic detachment and relevant tokens.

All of our plans for V2 got pushed back as a result of the last year or so just being so very messed up, but the current batch of model releases we're working through serve in part to ensure that each faction has an appropriate pool of plastic models (HQ, troops, and a 'specialty' unit of some kind) to draw from for their starter.

Looks great, although the link in the post still goes to the SARA Captain and the sniper doesn't appear in the Store.

The Sniper is directly under the SARA Captain in the store.

Thanks for pointing out the link, though... I've fixed that.

Well we can’t tell GW marketing has not been helping you guys out. If they had then these would be the bestest ever snipers and be priced at $35 since they are a single sprue character figure . I don’t know how you do it with the cost to make a mold in the mid 6 figures......sorry my sarcasm level seems to be set to GW .

With the twin billing of Covid and Brexit affecting so many business all over the place, this year started out a little slower than we had planned, but things are slowly getting back up to steam and our release schedule is finally getting back on track. Here's a look back at what we've been up to for the last 6-ish months!












Iain continued to smoosh things together in the workshop, working through a range of the usual sorts of modeling articles - kitbashes of kits, buildings made from bits and pieces and just generally getting paint all over everything in sight. You can find all of these modeling articles in the Hobby section of the Maelstrom's Edge website here.










On the new release front, we've given Epirian Contractor units some support with a new resin drone, and launched the Spiral Arm Revolutionary Army as a subfaction for the Broken, with the addition of plastic kits for a Revolutionary Captain and a cam-cloaked sniper. We also picked up the PDC Gaming heavy weapons carriage - a plastic kit that lets you build a range of different mobile weapons platforms, for those gamers looking for some heavier firepower. You can find all of these in the Maelstrom's Edge webstore.










Our biggest reveal for this year so far was, of course, the launch of the kickstarter for StackaRack - a plastic, customisable paint storage system! Our Kickstarter funded successfully, and we're currently hard at work finalising the design work so that we can get it sent off to our plastics production people. If you missed the Kickstarter, you can find out more information and follow our progress on the StackaRack Facebook page here.






So... what's next?










In the coming months, we have new plastic model releases for the Karists and Remnant, a couple of resin upgrades for the Remnant Militus kit, and a whole new range of bases to add to the webstore. There's also a new faction - our fifth! - to crawl forth from the destruction of the Edge.
On top of that, we're still beavering away behind the scenes on version 2 of the Maelstrom's Edge rules. Our original target had to be pushed back significantly thanks to the pandemic, but we're aiming to have the Beta version of the rules out before the end of this year. If you want to get in early, you can find a very early draft of the new rules in the development thread on the DakkaDakka forums here.



So much great stuff still to come - Stay tuned!





For the full range of Maelstrom's Edge products, including the Battle for Zycanthus starter set, the plastic and resin model range, the ever-useful Maelstrom's Edge Terrain Sprues, novels and audiobooks, check out the webstore here.

Back when the Maelstrom's Edge game was first launched, the budget only allowed for a small range of bases, so we started out with three different base sizes that were specifically designed with the launch model range in mind - a 25mm base for human sized models, and two considerably larger bases for the bigger models. As we started expanding our range, it became apparent that this wasn't going to be suitable for long, as there were too many models planned that would be too large for the 25mm base, but too small for the larger bases. With the completion of a new base tool, we're now able to rectify this with the addition of another 5 base sizes to the range, including 28mm, 32mm, 36mm and 40mm bases, and a much larger 65mm base to keep us covered when we start in models larger than the Hunter or the Mature Angel.









Some of these have already snuck out into the wild, with the recently released Broken Sniper coming with the new 32mm base. Others will be appearing in coming months on other models waiting in the queue.









You can also pick up all of these bases separately from the Maelstrom's Edge webstore now!
