Rocket engines blaze to life. Lasers light up the formless void. Galactic Empires clash. A lone hero rises up to fight for the resistance.
Welcome to the new and improved world of Fistful of Lead: Galactic Heroes!
In Galactic Heroes, or GH for short, you’ll take on the role of a Galactic Hero or Villain, leading a scruffy pirate crew looking for adventure, or maybe a troop of faceless soldiers of the Empire in search of bringing order to the galaxy. It’s really up to you!
What’s different about the 2nd edition from the original Galactic Heroes book? We’ve fixed a few errors and hopefully explained a few rules better, but mostly we’ve added new sections, traits and equipment that were originally released as separate books
- The Vehicle Manual - Rolling, stomping, skimming vehicles - even mounts!
- Codex Galactica - All the prestatted up peoples you could want!
Like all the Fistful of Lead games, you’ll only need 5 or 6 miniatures per player. You can play 1-on-1 games or larger skirmishes with up to 6 or 8 players. This book contains all the information you need to play a game, including rules for building your forces and how to set up the table for different scenarios. Most players will pick up the game mechanics quickly, even people who haven’t played a wargame before. If you’ve played Fistful of Lead before, a lot of this will be familiar.
Galactic Heroes allows you to play a small scale wargame in the far flung future, a galaxy, far, far away, a grim, dark future 40,000 years from now, or a certain Red Planet where swords and rayguns reign supreme. These rules are whatever YOU think Sci-Fi looks like, from your favorite Space Opera to gritty Pulp epic.
So check the seals on your vac-suit. Have your blaster at the ready. It’s time to see if you’re a Galactic Hero!
