Queen Victoria is dead.
The Martians have been defeated.
The Space Race has begun.
is a game of space combat in an age of steam and steel. Set in a fictional universe based loosely on the writings of H. G. Wells and other fantasists, it provides a back story and ship designs from an alternate history in which the Martian Invasion actually happened, the ether is all-pervasive, and Cavorite is a reality. But, as with Starmada
and other Majestic Twelve Games products, the focus is on players' imaginations; a clear and concise ship construction system is provided so you can pit your own space dreadnoughts against the likes of the Royal Navy Ether Squadron or the German ?thermarine
The rulebook includes five (5) sheets of full-color cardstock counters and one (1) sheet of transparent templates.
In addition, Brigade Models will be releasing a complete line of miniatures to support Iron Stars.
Please note that the print-on-demand edition does not include the ship counters or templates. However, these can be downloaded for free from our web site: www.mj12games.com/ironstars/.
