Default Planet Strike rumors - Games Day update and video

Posted by the Dude @ WS.

Quote:
Planet Strike will supposedly come sooner than expected. Iím told July at the latest.

Rumoured rules:

In a game of Planet Strike, the Attacker/Defender split will be very important, with them possibly getting different FOCs.

Defender
Gets to place all terrain on the battlefield and picks his table edge.

He can declare Terrain to be dangerous if he wants (Mined for example) although itís not clear how much he can do this for.

There will be buildings with mounted weapons, like armed bunkers etc. Probably, the defender will have to place all of his army.

Attacker
May place some Craters to get some cover.

May move in from his table edge, Deep Strike and Outflank, similar to a "Dawn of War" Scenario.

May also get some goodies like a prepared Artillery fire on the defending units, special equipment etc.

Will most likely get first Turn.

Releases:

New terrain such as a multipart plastic kit similar to the Cities of Death ruins. With enough of those you will possibly be able to build fortresses, defensive structures for tanks, or control towers, outposts etc. Also some new craters and other stuff that wasnít expanded on.

Plastic Thunderhawk is again mentioned.
Looks promising!

It does look interesting particulary the new terrain kits, it would be cool to build a fortress or something. DA Fortress Monestary here we come!

However I'm a bit skeptical on the the plastic Thunderhawk rumor, don't get me wrong I'll def buy one or two if they did ever come out but I wouldn't hold my breath. My FW one will have to do until then.

The warrior who acts out of honour cannot fail. His duty is honour itself. Even his death - if it is honourable - is a reward and can be no failure, for it has come through duty. Seek honour as you act, therefore, and you will know no fear.

Woo plastic Thunderhawks

It makes sense for them to be brought out in plastic. They're just a giant box for christ sake!
I really like the idea of all this terrain too, should be cool.

Sounds good! I'm pretty excited about this release and this is the first 'solid' info i've read.

It will be good to add more variety to games and the modular terrain sounds mint.
Also very interested in plastic Thunderhawk... as long as it's not +£100.

Plastic Thunderhawk? Are they still having that rumor float around? I really doubt GW can afford such a huge mold, I mean, look at the size of the FW one!

I wonder if the new imperial gaurd fleet comander could be used just as to fit the fluff.

They can mould a Land Raider. Put four land raiders together, Thunderhawk. It's easy to make moulds for that, just needs MORE pieces.

Releasedate is most likely correct. I would seriously doubt that this wouldn't be this years summer campain idea. That will most likely put release to June since they want folks to get it, and modify armies before the campain is over

As much s I'd like to have one, I think the Thunderhawk is probably the weakest part of the rumors.


I can't wait to combine City Fight, Planet Strike and Apocalypse! That sounds crazy fun!
