New Purchase - Starter Set for Beyond the Gates of Antares

So I purchased the starter box for the game Beyond the Gates of Antares from my local Hobby Store - Odyssey Games.  I have been looking at this game for awhile and decided to pull the trigger.  The starter box is an amazing value for the price.  I love the fact they give you the FULL hard-back full-size rule-book in the starter box, most starter boxes from other companies only give you intro rules, or smaller pint-sized versions of the rules.  Well done Warlord Games.

I hope to have these put together and painted over the next week or two, as I also have 3 other painting projects on my table already, but I will make room for them.  Nothing like keeping myself busy.  On top of this, next week I will finish off my gaming table and terrain, and I will doing one large post about that as well.


The starter set contains everything you need to start gaming.

  • Full color 260-page hardback rule-book.
    • Quick reference sheet.
    • Getting started booklet.
  • Ghar Models
    • 3 multi-pose plastic Ghar Battle Squad walkers.
    • 3 multi pose plastic Ghar Assault Squad walkers.
  • Concord Models
    • 20 multi-pose plastic Concord Strike Troopers.
    • 4 plastic Concord support drones.
    • 8 plastic spotter drones.
    • Strike Leader Kai Lek Atastrin metal figure.
  • 12 order dice.
  • Ghar distort dice.
  • 13 Polyhedral dice.
  • Launch Edition plastic templates and tokens.
  • 12 red plastic pin markers.

I'm not sure I will do a whole unboxing post about the starter set, as there are so many of them out there, but we will see.  Tonight I will get everything out of the box, and see where things take me.  I may do a unboxing video, and if I do, will post that to the blog.

Lots to look forward to on the blog over the next couple of weeks.

Until next time, KEEP ON GAMING.
