Rogue Stars: The Ucrian Harbingers

Posted on January 6th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by


The latest crew to enlist at the Battleshed Barracks are five hardnosed and rather hirsute mercenaries calling themselves the Ucrian Harbingers. My first crew for Rogue Stars!

With games of Rogue Stars in the planning, I thought I’d share my experimental roster after a bit of rule book thumbing. This motley crew are bio-engineered simians from Ganesha Game’s Project Simian Ultra X range available through Alternative Armies. And I’ll confess, I’ve already put in an order for another four from the range. Six days into 2017 and I’ve wedged open the wallet already!
They’re led (from left to right) by Patrol leader Aelsaf and his crew – Psionic Wayfinder Rathek and Harbingers Kerduk, Lasrauk and Jalgrul. I went with the mercenary theme as I think it mostly covers the traits space-faring simians would exhibit.

The Ucrian Harbingers unplugged. Apart from the one front right. He’s waiting in the wings.

It’s always difficult to assess what might work or not until you’ve a few games under your belt although part of the fun is flicking through all those option tables to try and figure out your first 200 XP crew! It could all go terribly wrong but it’ll be interesting to find out!
