- 4 new EDF miniatures for Star
Blazers Fleet Battle System will
soon be available plus more may be on
the way. Here is the latest
message from Musashi Enterprises:
I have been
informed by Grim Reaper Casting that the
production of the long anticipated EDF
mini's has begun.
first batch will be shipped to me around
the end of the month. Once received I
will post a message on the forum site as
well as on the official Musashi website:
A new price
structure will also be posted at that
time. Expect the 4 new mini's to be in
the $10.00 ea. price range with no
discount plan as with the older mini's.
The 20% discount will not be applied to
any of the new releases since production
costs have increased. Also, there is no
20% discount on the Galman sub, since
this is an out of production item.
Along with the 4
new mini's we are also releasing a separate
package of the battlecraft movement
stands. These can be used for a number
of basing options. These are the same
round b/c stands you receive in each
battlecraft pack, but now you can
purchase them as a separate item (8 to a
package). Price.$4.00 per pack.
Other space gaming
projects that will relate to the
existing Starblazers universe are in the
works and will be announced via the
forum or on the Musashi website when
Musashi Enterprises, Inc.
Blazers FBS Yahoo Group, there has
been discussion on new miniatures, and
Musashi has a proposal where
gamers pre-pay for the miniatures in
the works to cover the $1500 sculpting
costs (minimum $50 pledge which is
about 5 ships). A poll on this
group indicated the most requested new
minis are the Shinano, Radetsky, and
Musashi plus a Yamato refit could also
be done. There is still
discussion going on so join in and
help the creation of new minis for
this game or contact email@example.com
