There is that of course, and also personally there was the fact that the two faction that the game started with both held little appeal to me.The broken are much more my style, in terms of design, backstory, and hopefully game play.Half a dozen models can be built from a single set of sprues, with enough options for all of your sci-fi civilian modeling desires to be fulfilled.Suitable as proxy models, conversion fodder, and part swaps for other ranges, there are plenty of uses beyond Maelstrom's Edge, so those spare parts you have left over when building a Broken force will have plenty of uses.These survivors take matters into their own hands after being left behind. They are a group unlike any ever seen in the galaxy.They pool their resources and knowledge in a communal effort to escape the Edge. Fear, hate, anger, need fused them, these abandoned people, into an unstoppable force with one goal - escape the Edge.For an equivalent points value in just the 4 Broken units available now, you can do it with 11 sets (66 models), which would set you back around US0. There will be other units released for them in the nearish future as well (and I will likely be working up a few 'unnoficial' units along the way as I start playing with conversions, for those interested in such things ) that will help soak up some points when it is time to expand from there Yeah, I've been tinkering with an idea for a renegade bot handler unit, who would control a bot mob comprised of Spider and/or scarecrow frames, with slightly reduced stats and Broken weapons replacing the Epirian armament. It's a fantastic tale, one of my favourites, and showcases the kinds of crossovers that can happen in the chaos of the Edge. ) we signed up to write in the Maelstrom's Edge universe.I should also mention that the story is found in the Tales from the Edge: Escalation collection, not the Emergence volume.

You can also check out the unit cards and faction rules at our brand new online force listing section.The ability to put old pieces to use is a big selling point to me.The broken are much more my style, in terms of design, backstory, and hopefully game play. I can understand how the Broken have a lot of appeal in the variety of their organization, and how they represent the "underdog" in the Maelstrom's Edge universe.The best part about these guys is the creativity it allows the player.This theme is something that interests me and have been wanting to see in a game for a long time.
