WizKids currently has the Star Trek license, and they have several games associated with it. They recently introduced several unpainted miniatures for D&D and Pathfinder, and they’ll be introducing them for Star Trek: Attack Wing as well as several new faction packs. They’ll also be releasing an expansion for Star Trek: Frontiers, Tactics, and Heroclix:
WizKids, the industry leader in quality pre-painted and unpainted plastic miniatures and publisher of premium tabletop games and accessories, is pleased to announce a renewed multi-year license with CBS Consumer Products to continue bringing their popular Star Trek brand to players and fans around the globe. Plans include expanding their highly successful Star Trek: Attack Wing line, while also offering new and returning Star Trek focused product lines.
Star Trek: Attack Wing
WizKids has announced two new product configurations will be joining the tactical miniatures game, Star Trek: Attack Wing — card packs and faction packs. Each Star Trek: Attack Wing Card Pack will include cards, token sheets, and the necessary dial connector pieces. Most of these cards and tokens will be brand new content, while some cards in each pack will be reworded versions of existing cards. Each Star Trek: Attack Wing Card Pack now has a lower price point than previous expansion pack releases, and will point to at least one existing release for players to acquire the correct ship sculpt, if they don’t already own a copy.
Each Star Trek: Attack Wing Faction Pack will include four pre-painted plastic ships with cards, token sheets, dial connector pieces, bases, and pegs to accompany them. Many of the cards and tokens in these faction packs will be brand new and will allow a player to field a never-before-seen fleet from right out of the box! That’s not all, the amazing price point of these Star Trek: Attack Wing Faction Packs allows players to get four ships for the a price that is approximately two normal expansion packs! Star Trek: Attack Wing Card Packs will release in summer, and Faction Packs will be hitting store shelves in early fall.
Star Trek: Deep Cuts™ Unpainted Miniatures
For fans wanting to paint their very own Star Trek: Attack Wing ships, WizKids has them covered! Star Trek: Deep Cuts™ Unpainted Miniatures will be joining the newly released Deep Cuts™ line this summer and each pack will come with one highly-detailed ship, pre-primed with Acrylicos Vallejo primer, and include deep cuts for easier painting. The packaging of each different set will display the minis in a visible format and will contain a Star Trek: Attack Wing base, two Star Trek: Attack Wing pegs, a Star Trek: Attack Wing connector piece, and most will also include a decal sheet to allow players to paint their ships and then decal them for display or for use in a game of Star Trek: Attack Wing! Star Trek: Deep Cuts Unpainted Miniatures can be found in a store near you this summer!
Star Trek: Frontiers: The Return of Khan Expansion Set
Players and fans can look forward to a follow-up expansion for the hit game Star Trek: Frontiers, called The Return of Khan. Designed by Andrew Parks based on the bestselling board game Mage Knight by Vlaada Chvátil, The Return of Khan will be hitting friendly local game stores in summer. Following in the footsteps of Star Trek: Frontiers, this all-new expansion brings the same level of content to Star Trek: Frontiers that Lost Legion brought to the world-wide hit, Mage Knight Board Game. The Return of Khan will feature Khan’s Jem’Hadar Battle Cruiser, “The Pequod,” along with a new playable ship, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-A. Tougher challenges and even more strategic choices await you in this expansion.
Star Trek Tactics: Series IV
Fans can also prepare to relive iconic battles from the Star Trek Universe or create their own with the upcoming release, Star Trek Tactics, a tactical combat game system returning to hobby stores early this fall. The Star Trek Tactics: Series IV set features over 25 premium pre-painted ships that have never been seen in Star Trek Tactics before! Play with fan-favorite classic factions such as the Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Dominion, and Borg as well as the all new Xindi and Andorian factions! Unlike previous Star Trek Tactics sets, all ship sculpts are used only once within the set! That’s right, Series IV brings 28 unique dials and sculpts to the Milky Way!
Star Trek HeroClix Away Team: The Original Series
Lastly, the Starfleet crew will return to the HeroClix Tabletop! Star Trek HeroClix Away Team: The Original Series will be joining the wildly popular HeroClix modern legal family, and includes the most iconic characters from Star Trek: The Original Series with Kirk, Spock, Uhura, and more! Star Trek HeroClix Away Team: The Original Series will hit store shelves this fall, and will be available in the following configurations: 5-figure booster packs, starter sets, and dice and token packs. A premium map featuring the deck of the beloved Enterprise will also be available at launch.
There’s a lot there, and WizKids aims to please. I like the fact that they are doing what they can to reduce costs and keep fans happy. The Faction Packs for Attack Wing are long overdue, and should make it easy for fans to put together their favorite ships from the series. Be sure to look for all of these later this year.
