The Star Wars Shatterpoint core set is up for pre-order. The price at Asmodee’s webstore $164.99 / £164.99, with a pre-order discount of £149.99 for UK customers, and other retailers may have different discounts. But what’s in the box?
The Star Wars Shatterpoint core set contents are:
- B1 Battle Droids x 6
- Mandalorian Super Commandos x 2
- Lord Maul
- Asajj Ventress
- Gar Saxon
- CC-7567 Captain Rex
- Bo-Karan Kryze
- Anakin Skywalker
- Ahsoka Tano
- 501st Clone Troopers x2
- Clan Kryze Mandalorians x 2
The B1 Battle Droids are grouped three models to a base, similar to the Hydra Troops and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents from Atomic Mass’ sister game Marvel Crisis Protocol. This gives 12 ‘units’, with four units together forming a ‘squad’. Players can build their own squads of heroes and villains freely, though four suggested squads are provided in the box set to get you started.
The starter set comes with a set of terrain with multiple levels and ladders, so players will be able to get started even if they don’t have the master skills needed to build their own Tatooine scenery. The scenery contents are similar in size to the separate “High Ground” terrain pack, which will retail for $74.99 / £74.99.
Atomic Mass Games’ Marvel Crisis Protocol appears on our list of the best Marvel board games and the best miniature wargames, so we have high hopes for Star Wars Shatterpoint.
