Producers of Maelstrom's Edge




London and Los Angeles

We are proud to announce that the third Maelstrom's Edge faction has now launched, with a range of plastic models. We present to you... The Broken!

From the factories and the slums, the mining complexes and the farms of the galaxy come the Broken, a growing movement of citizenry angered by the lack of opportunity to escape the Maelstrom. They are a diverse mix of workers, aliens, and rogues left on doomed worlds by the ruling parties.



These survivors take matters into their own hands after being left behind. They pool their resources and knowledge in a communal effort to escape the Edge. Derelict ships are repaired. Affluent people’s ships are stolen. Government ships are commandeered. Any ship available is pressed into service for the Broken. They are a group unlike any ever seen in the galaxy. Fear, hate, anger, need fused them, these abandoned people, into an unstoppable force with one goal - escape the Edge. The Broken is a term used to unify all such desperate people across the Edge. Their motivation, methods, and sanity vary wildly from fervent revolutionaries to callous pirates to the few who have stared into the maw of the Maelstrom only to come away unhinged.



The Broken are available for purchase now at the Maelstrom's Edge webstore. You can also check out the unit cards and faction rules at our brand new online force listing section.



Half a dozen models can be built from a single set of sprues, with enough options for all of your sci-fi civilian modeling desires to be fulfilled. Suitable as proxy models, conversion fodder, and part swaps for other ranges, there are plenty of uses beyond Maelstrom's Edge, so those spare parts you have left over when building a Broken force will have plenty of uses.



The kit is extremely versatile, with every arm, torso, legs and head a distinct part and combination. No hands are built in to the weapons so they are easily switchable with other models, and the entire kit is almost fully parts compatible with our Karist and Epirian lines, allowing for rogue Karist and Epirian forces to represented, as well as converts and captured equipment.



The kit also has unprecedented diversity for a plastic sci-fi civilian range, featuring plenty of female heads and gender agnostic heads, as well as large mixture of alien heads with variant poses to ensure you can build a force themed around a specific alien type if you so desire.



Keep your eyes on our The Comm Guild website for assembly instructions and more articles featuring The Broken in the near future.

We are also pleased to report that this release kicks off the start of our increased release schedule, with a release planned every month. Make sure you follow us on facebook to see all of our releases as they are revealed!

They'll also be great for civilians/non combatants in just about any near future/sci fi setting.

Doesn't someone make 28mm hands with tools? I though Mad Robot but don't see them there.

Anyway, point being a definite buy from me.

Oh and they're $27 for 12 models if anyone's wondering.

With every new release it is getting harder and harder to continue to stay out of MEdge. Love this new faction, and very interested to see what that big gribbly is fighting the robot in the artwork.

*sigh*... What's another box of minis in the house anyway, really?

We'll find out soon enough eh.

OK I was thinking about maybe buying one box for INQ28 and Necromunda conversions, but between the Awesome Space Revolutionaries background and that ginger mental case in the fur coat on the art there I'm seriously tempted to get a small ME force now.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Really happy to see these out in the wild after so much time spent planning and developing them! Plenty more to come over the coming months to add to the Broken's rabble.

Just a reminder to anyone new to the background of the game that there are plenty of stories about the Broken in our two short story collections, Tales from the Edge: Emergence and Tales from the Edge: Escalation.

Yeah I went in for two packs (which will build 2 dozen, and more if I nab some spare torsos!)

With shipping to the US an extremely reasonable $3, it only came out to $53 total including shipping - that's crazy! I think it might be $58 if you don't have the VIP subscription to the site (which gives 10% off, it prompts you if you want to add it at checkout) but still, just nuts.

Now back to scheming on various ways to use these

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Sorry, I've been looking forward to this release for a while now

Two reasons for this:

1. Great models for both ME and other sci-fi skirmish games.

2. I can't wait to gun down this rebel scum with my Karist army.

Yeah, ME is a very good game, but when you've only got 2 armies to choose from, and a select number of units, it did start to feel a bit too 'samey.'

This third faction is a welcome boost for the game.

There is that of course, and also personally there was the fact that the two faction that the game started with both held little appeal to me. The broken are much more my style, in terms of design, backstory, and hopefully game play.

Yeah, the Broken incorporate various alien species into their forces, not all of which are human-sized. These will be added to the range over time.

You'll notice that our factions all have a big (50mm-ish) centrepiece model as an option and The Broken are no exception. It is not the next release, but it is on the way!

The best part about these guys is the creativity it allows the player. This theme is something that interests me and have been wanting to see in a game for a long time. The ability to put old pieces to use is a big selling point to me.

We're really excited to see these in the wild now! I can understand how the Broken have a lot of appeal in the variety of their organization, and how they represent the "underdog" in the Maelstrom's Edge universe. Saying that, both the Epirian Foundation and the Karist Enclave aren't quite so monolithic as they might first appear. When you dig into both their backgrounds, you quickly realize there's a lot of potential for internal conflict, and there's no easy answers about who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. As we expand the fiction, you'll see this more and more.

And then there's the Remnant . . .

The Broken are a horde army, so their units are really cheap, points-wise. The starter set forces come in at around about 120 points. For an equivalent points value in just the 4 Broken units available now, you can do it with 11 sets (66 models), which would set you back around US$150. Not bad for a horde force.


There will be other units released for them in the nearish future as well (and I will likely be working up a few 'unnoficial' units along the way as I start playing with conversions, for those interested in such things ) that will help soak up some points when it is time to expand from there
