Natalya’s Kostjak Bronka Apparat rang against the tunnel’s stone floor as she marched. Oksana had promoted her to Vtrogo Lejtenant and entrusted her with the task of leading an UMTOMA strike force through the catacombs leading to a Reich outpost. She could hear guards moving into position around the corner. Her troops looked at her, and Natalya readied her Volta Lightning Cannon. She did not want to disappoint Oksana.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce Natalya, a single figure hero expansion for Tannhäuser. A naturally gifted scientist and tinkerer, Natalya helped Oksana explore the abandoned technologies of Kizhi and worked to improve them. Now she serves Oksana and her New Guard as 2nd Lieutenant, marching into battle in her Kostjak Bronka Apparat (KBA) suit. With the KBA suit, she gains protection from harm and always has a weapon at the ready for hand-to-hand combat. She can repair her KBA suit when necessary and benefits from its resiliency as she wields her devastating Volta Lightning Cannon, which is able to target multiple combatants with a single blast.
The price of loyalty
Natalya is an Epic Hero and comes with additional rules for inclusion in your team. Her primary loyalty is to Oksana, whom she believes to be a reborn hero of the bylinas in the flesh. This means she can serve the Matriarchy, or follow Oksana to the Union. Or with the rules for the UMTOMA, Natalya can serve the tenuous alliance between Matriarchy and Union forces, created to oppose the Reich and Shogunate forces united by the Nippon Accord.
Though she holds the rank of 2nd Lieutenant in the New Guard, Natalya is happiest to follow the orders of her superiors, quickly mobilizing for battle in her Kostjak Bronka Apparat suit. Her keen mind and natural aptitude make her invaluable to the Matriarchy and New Guard as she learns from Union mechanics and applies her technology in the war against the forces that threaten the motherland.
Natalya comes complete with a sculpted and painted miniature, character sheet, tokens, and equipment cards. The included rulebook details the UMTOMA treaty between the Matriarchy and Union as well as rules for including Natalya in your team as an Epic Hero. The rulebook also includes a unique scenario to test her leadership skills and the resilience of her KBA suit.
Incorporate the genius of this natural tinkerer into your team when she reinforces Oksana and her New Guard in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Tannhäuser is a squad based tactical board game set in an alternate timeline in which WWI has never ended. The forces of the Reich have turned to the occult, while the forces of the Union have delved into alien technology and developed deadly weapons of war. Using the revolutionary Path-Finding System, Tannhäuser is quick and easy to play.
Looks like a fun character to play. Could use a cooler pose next time lol
Honestly, I'm really underwhlmed. First, the mini itself looks really bland to me, except for it's gun which looks ridiculous. As soon as I heard epic level Matriarchy, I was hoping for something along the lines of Asteros (Maybe one of the trapped deities broke free, or maybe a demon broke free). This just looks blocky with a cartoony gun.
However, I'll second the need for an RPG.
oooohhhh niice ^-^... and true, it really needs a RPG settling of Tannhauser. They have enough story and materials for that
I love all the new Tannhauser stuff on the horizon! Keep it coming!
And yes, this setting needs an well done RPG immediately, if not sooner.
A novel is great.
Thanks for the info Miah999

I want a Tannhauser novel!!!! Or 3. Is Dan Abnett doing anything right now?
Seems like we have our first ever epic level mechanic! Move over, RUR!
This game needs a Reich vs Allies vs Matriarchy vs Shogunate smackdown, with a board to match.
Great to see all those new miniatures.
I hope to see a new maps for the Shogunate faction soon.
This setting needs an RPG...
