KING OF TOKYO 2016 VERSION

39.99

On the 5th anniversary of the release of the best-seller by Richard Garfield, King of Tokyo gets a facelift with a new version, entirely redone by a group of artists* lead by Régis Torres, who previously illustrated the Halloween expansion pack and King of New York.

In addition to these exclusive illustrations, this new version will have a new rulebook that was reworked to be clearer, as well as two new monsters: the ever-so-popular Space Penguin (the original version, highly sought-after by players, was only available through tournaments) and Cyber Kitty.

The King, Gigazaur, Meka Dragon, and Alienoid, still defending their territory, have also benefitted from a makeover. The changes are purely aesthetic changes: the rules of the game and Power cards remain unchanged.

These new illustrations will also be used the the digital version of the game, currently in the development stages, whose requirements were the main reason behind the makeover.

Initially published by IELLO in 2011, King of Tokyo has today been translated into 30 languages, and has sold over 750,000 copies worldwide!

STORMCLOUD ATTACK: THE ELDRITCH & THE BEAST

100.00

The sky shall be your grave.

The galaxy of the 41st millennium burns, trapped in an unending war, with every race set against every other, in all imaginable theatres of war. A vital component of these battles is the desperate struggle for aerial superiority: wings of aircraft engaging in spectacular dogfights, weaving through storms of bullet hell, swooping into valleys to shake off enemies before unleashing incredible firepower, climbing at stunning speed to gain the perfect angle for a volley of missiles… the skies darken with fleets of combat aircraft vying for superiority, with the unfortunate second-best falling from the sky in spiralling pieces.

Stormcloud Attack: The Eldritch & The Beast is an exciting stand-alone boxed game for two players, pitting flying machines from the 41st millennium against each other in thrilling single combat. It features an Eldar Crimson Hunter and an Ork Dakkajet, with an eighty-page softback Flight Manual detailing the awesome rules for stunning dogfighting manoeuvres, with a massive selection of missions, duels and dogfights.

CAMPAIGNS

The included Flight Manual contains a comprehensive guide to running your own Stormcloud Attack campaign – any number of players can take part, tracking the exploits of their pilot over the course of several engagements with a Pilot Record Card, watching them grow from a fresh-faced rookie to a grizzled fighter Ace. Each rank they gain grants them new and better abilities, meaning you can become a death-dealing monster of the skies and send your mates crashing and burning. Remember, there are no points for second best!

There’s even an exclusive transfer sheet with Ace decals and more included.

Also included are optional rules for Air Assaults – create special operations, capture ground targets and transport troops to and from important mission objectives.

EXTRA INFORMATION

Stormcloud Attack can be played with extra Flyer models, and against other Flyers in the Warhammer 40,000 range – datasheets containing their Stormcloud Attack rules are available for free download on their respective pages. A pdf of Pilot Record Cards for use in campaigns is available to download from the tab on the right.
