Star Wars Miniatures Jumps To Light Speed With New Game

Posted By Curto on November 15, 2006

November 15, 2006 (Renton, Wash.)Star Wars fans, prepare for launch! Starship Battles, a new and exciting Star Wars Miniatures game featuring 60 iconic vehicles from the Star Wars saga, is preparing to jump to hyperdrive with skirmish-style battles that allow players to pit fleet against fleet in fast-paced, head-to-head action.

Star Wars Miniatures Starship Battles is the newest offering from collectible miniatures leader Wizards of the Coast. The game allows players to build their own fleet to take into battle and features the best vehicles from all eras of the Star Wars universe. For example, a fleet might include Jedi starfighters, Rebel transports, Star Destroyer capital ships or even Han Solo’s prize, the Millennium Falcon!

Each Star Wars Miniatures Starship Battles Starter Set includes all of the components necessary to immediately engage in intergalactic dogfights. The starter game includes two exclusive 100mm-scale miniatures: the Super Star Destroyer Executor™ and the Mon Calamari Star Defender Viscount™. Also included in the starter are eight randomized, fully painted, plastic miniatures, full-color stat cards, two-sided battle map, two Fleet Commander cards, rulebook, damage and command counters, and a d20.

“This is a highly anticipated game for gamers, movie fans and collectors alike,” said Rachel Kirkman, Brand Manager for Star Wars Miniatures. “Star Wars Miniatures fans have been controlling the fate of squads for years, but this new vehicles game finally allows players to control the destiny of a fleet in space battles.”

Starship Battles can be used in skirmish-level and mass-level combat scenarios and also can add a new dimension to Star Wars roleplaying games.

The Star Wars Miniatures Starship Battles Starter Set and Booster Packs will be available in hobby shops and major retail stores nationwide on November 24, 2006. Starter Set will be available for a suggested retail price of $39.99. Booster Packs, which will include 7 miniatures at full-color stat cards, will be available for the suggested retail price of $21.99.
