Finishing the Chronicles 30
An open letter to the Mutant Chronicles Miniatures Game community
Mutant Chronicles | Published 09 April 2009

Mutant Chronicles Miniatures Game Community:

It is with regret that Fantasy Flight Games must announce the cancellation of the Mutant Chronicles Miniatures Game. Unfortunately, despite big GAMA Trade Show and Gen Con promotions along with aggressive advertising and a premium league kit to support organized play, sales never rose to the level necessary to sustain the game.

We at FFG spent a lot of time and energy on creating this game, and we're big fans of the world and system. While we are open to offers from other companies for the rights to the game line, this chapter of the Mutant Chronicles saga has drawn to a close.

However, we certainly don't want to leave players with an incomplete first set. You supported this game, so we would like to support you.

We will be selling Mutant Chronicles: Lost Legions, a box containing the remaining 13 miniatures that were never released as well as one previously-released figure from the starter set that was never released in a Warpack (see below for images), plus a poster map, promo cards, and (while supplies last) a Mutant Chronicles patch, all for a price of $10.00 plus shipping. In addition, extra Mutant Chronicles dice sets are available for $4.95 plus shipping.

You can purchase these items in the FFG Online Store. Retail stores wishing to offer this to their customers can contact Rick Nauertz in the FFG Sales Department.

In addition, we will be posting PDFs of the cards for the already-designed next set of miniatures – 29 figures for the five released factions, plus unit card templates for Cybertronic, Imperial, Mishima and Semaï – for free download, as our gift to those of you who love this great game. You can proxy your own figures in this free expansion, and design your own characters, making your Mutant Chronicles experience last for years to come.

Finally, we want to thank all of you who purchased Mutant Chronicles, played it with your friends, showed it off at your local games store, and helped to get others into the game. Your efforts are appreciated.

 

Figures included in the Lost Legions set include:


(left to right): Free Marine Soldier, Mitch Hunter, Freedom Brigadier Sergeant,
Free Marine Tank Hunter, Free Marine Hero


(left to right): Dragoon Kapitan, Battlesuit Prototype, Etoilles Mortant, Max Steiner,
Security Specialist, Dragoon


(left to right): Advanced Bio Giant, Infernal Corroder, Bio Giant

We'd like to thank FFG for creating a brilliant system, and for making the final figures available at an affordable price.  Many good things come to in an end it these troubled times.  Cheers all.

I love the MC Universe but gamewise it seems to be cursed.

FFG effort seemed Doomed from the start-its like they had a check list of what players didn't want & made sure they checked off all the boxes.

Two days after the article goes up and the online store already says the Lost Legion pack is Out of Stock.  I hope that's not the case because I didn't even get a chance to order any yet.  I'll be very dissapointed if I can't complete the first set.

Unfortunate to see the game cancelled.  I think if some of those who dismissed it due to the perceived scale issue actually played the game, they would find it's a fun and challenging game.

I loved the old RPG from the 90s, be thinking of using it with the BRP system, but have a serious Dark Heresy Addiction. Shame, its a good setting

Yes, really sad news. May be, some sompany would like to buy rights to this game - of course, there is little hope for this, it would become a great game someday!

As a one-time marketeer for this product, I'm sad to see it canceled as well.  The whining about 54mm scale still never fails to make me laugh; what a lame excuse for not liking a game.  Sorry Mutant Chronicles fans, maybe someday we'll get another cool game in this unique setting.

 Not unexpected, though FFG did its best to push the game despite the bad launch. The game was a blast.

 It's a great move from FFG to give us the opportunity to complete the set. Too bad we won't get our hand on the figs from the first expansion. Those stat cards are just great, but the 54mm scale will make it difficult to proxy...

 And when I see those blank cards for the other corpos... (Cries a little inside)

Not unexpected since the scale follows the same pattern as that of Shadowrun and Creepy Freaks [iirc the name of that one] and the Ace Game variant for Crimson Skies, all Wizkids games which were set at something other than 28mm to "corner some other market" I guess, and which died quickly. 

If MC had been set at 28-30mm, I would have bought the minis to add to my lead set from Warzone.  If Wizkids had made Shadowrun in 28mm, I'd have bought those minis as well.  I purchased the 54mm minis for Crimson Skies only because I wanted the airplanes, but those 54mm figures are statues on a battlefield being populated by 28mm minis.  I may wind up doing the same with a few of the MC miniatures, but unlikely.  Ah, well.
