With the release on a new edition of Monsterpocalypse scheduled for September, Privateer Press has revealed what each of the first two starter sets will contain. The game pits giant monsters and Earth’s defenders against one another in battle and each starter will contain one large miniature and five smaller ally units for the Destroyers and Protectors. Each starter set will carry an MSRP of $49.95.
The updated and streamlined second edition of Monsterpocalypse, the hit collectible game released in 2008, is now a hobby miniatures game! Players choose a monster, its army, and its paint scheme before smashing apart the local metropolis in battle against an enemy monster and its minions!
Two different single-player starter sets offer players a choice between Protectors and Destroyers. Once a side has been chosen, players can expand and customize their force with Monster, Unit, and Building packs and tailor their play experience with a variety of supplementary accessories.
With highly detailed resin and metal hobby miniatures, Monsterpocalypse will appeal to both players of the original game as well as newcomers to the world of miniatures.
The game will feature two different Agendas players can choose from when building their armies: the noble Protectors, who want to save the world and the creatures that inhabit it from destruction, or the evil Destroyers, who seek to enslave and destroy the Earth for their own diabolical purposes. Both Agendas feature three different Factions, each with its own unique monsters and units. Players can freely mix and match any models from the Factions within their Agenda when building their army. The game will launch with two different one-player starter sets, one for each of the two Agendas. These starter sets will be expanded by Monster, Unit, and Building packs, which will contain new models for players to use in their games.
The Monsterpocalypse Hobby Miniatures Game represents an updated and streamlined second edition of the original 2008 collectible game’s rules. Additionally, instead of using pre-painted collectible figures to play, the new game’s most noteworthy difference is its use of highly detailed resin and metal hobby miniatures, which players get to assemble before playing. As a hobby game, this upgrade to the Monsterpocalypse experience provides the opportunity for players to customize their armies through painting and modeling them.
