 Counterblast is available as a full sized, full color hardback book with 160+ pages of rules, new art, and expanded information and lore of the Counterblast universe. Each hardback book purchase includes a free PDF copy. In addition, during the pre-order campaign, each Counterblast book purchase will include an all new Sally Starfield model absolutely free. All items available for pre-order are estimated to begin shipping in August 2017.

In keeping with the nostalgic feel of CounterBlast, we’re also pleased to offer an all new starter set for those beginning their adventures in the Outer Reaches or those wishing to expand their existing crews. This Counterblast Lunchbox Edition starter set comes in a color printed tin lunch box adorned with new art depicting the enterprising Lancer Captain Wanda Whitestar and her intrepid crew by the talented Giorgio Baroni. This starter set will include two custom-cut tray inserts manufactured by Battle Foam™ to keep your crews safe as they travel with you from game to game. You will be able to select two of the five depicted faction crews to be included in your set. These miniatures are cast in metal and/or high quality polyurethane resin. In addition, you will receive color statcards for each crew model, two quality Chessex® d10 “Moxie” dice sets in faction-related colors, a Counterblast tape measure, and a handy black and white quick-start rulebook.

The Counterblast lunch box and the foam miniature trays are also available separately.

Eligible faction starter crew selections for the Lunchbox Edition are:

To achieve this end, they have harvested and experimented on wounded opponents, grafting the biologic with Mekkus circuitry and components, forming a horrific union to aid in accomplishing their driving directive.
