So while I may have been obsessed with playing Kingdom Death recently, I got through from Scale 75 my pledge reward for Fallen Frontiers. Fallen Frontiers is a scifi game, with some of the typical tropes you would expect. It's a time of interstellar turmoil, as Humanity is led by megacorps into war with a alien race, not unlike our own, but more brutish, alien created super humans clad in power armour, and a race of strange cybernetic horrors.

The models being resin are very crisp, and light, and they don't feel too brittle. Also there is a noticeable difference in height between the humans, and the superhumans and the aliens.

The Riff get 10 troopers, 5 assault troopers, a commander for each type of troop, a heavy weapons model, and two heroes. Add in some dice, counters, some terrain, and the rules, and for 75 Euro that is not a bad deal. Especially as that is two 300 pt armies. A typical sized army is meant to be 600 pts.

So the rules.
