Drakerys Starter: Irosia vs Ashral

$90.00 SRP

Drakerys is a fantasy world where Dwarves, Elves, Orcs and Humans reign over ancient kingdoms. Elemental magic created the world and went into slumber for centuries, leaving myths about dreadful and marvelous creatures ruling over the living. Everybody knows fairies and trolls are just stuff of legends, right? Wrong! A few weeks ago, an adventurer awoke a powerful dragon and triggered a chain of events leading to the destruction of an empire. Magic is returning in a world shaken by sudden chaos. Armies are assembling to repel the awakening creatures and seize power!

In Drakerys, each player chooses a side, gathers miniature troops and takes the lead against other players in story-driven skirmish battles. The terrain setting as well as the victory conditions are laid out by a battle scenario all players agreed upon. The fate of warriors is determined through combat rules and some rolls of dice. As a war leader, you’ll need tactical insight–and a bit of luck–to win!

The Starter Box contains everything you'll need to discover miniature games and enjoy Drakerys. Two armies are featured with fully assembled miniatures: the Human Paladins of Irosia and the wild Orcs of Ashral.

As the story begins, they are pitted against each other in a campaign to conquer a mysterious archipelago filled with danger, secrets about the magical events to come, not to mention countless treasures! The winning side will take an important advantage in the beginning war.

The old world is about to crumble. It’s a time of heroes. Will you be the king of tomorrow? Find out with Drakerys!

The game uses classic fantasy army building with an fresh twist: players use a special Action Wheel to determine whose turn is it to play and what units can do. The same player can play several times in a row or execute glorious feats at the price of increased risks, or use a more cautions approach to moving his army. This unforeseen game mechanic sets a new vision in fantasy gaming strategies.

Drakerys Core Rulebook

$20.00 SRP

The legend tells that Drakerys, our world, was born from the fury of elemental energies tamed by primordial dragons. When the dragons fell asleep, their Elf, Human, Dwarf and Orc servants stood to fight and created the empires we know today. Centuries went by and Drakerys forgot the fury of its origins. Today, the elemental messengers announce the return of magic and dragons, and a new era of battles. Old empires topple and armies rise to answer the call of new heroes. The world is changing! Are you ready to take power?

Drakerys is a wargame played with miniatures in a medieval fantasy universe.

This rulebook contains an introduction to the world of Drakerys.
The game rules, with many illustrated examples. Rules for magic and elemental invocation. All the game profiles for the four factions (Paladins of Irosia, Orcs of Ashral, Elves of Avaren and Dwarves of the Aurium caste) along with the profiles for the Elementals and mercenaries. Advanced rules for sceneries. Nine scenarios for any of the four armies.

Release Date: November 2016

Aeon's End

$49.99 SRP
The survivors of a long-ago invasion have taken refuge in the forgotten underground city of Gravehold.

TMNT HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell- Karai


TMNT HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell - Karai
Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Welcome back for another exciting preview for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClixHeroes In A Half-Shell set!  This second Gravity Feed adds more than 30 characters from the 32 years of TMNT history, based on both the comics and animated TV series.  Today’s preview thickens the plot between the Turtles and the Foot Clan, introducing the mysterious and deadly Karai!

TMNT HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell - Karai

Karai is an offense-driven Martial Artist piece that can shine whether she's fighting alongside her Foot Clan tribe or as part of an uneasy coalition on a TMNT Ally team.  Leonardo, My... Rival is a trait that makes good work of teaming Karai with her frequent sparring partner, Leonardo. When adjacent to a friendly Leonardo, they both modify their attack values by +1 for even greater offensive output from both of them.  Karai is a dangerous ranged attacker with a range value of 6.  She starts off with Running Shot, letting her move and attack, and possesses Precision Strike, helping her get through some tricky defense powers and guaranteeing some damage when she hits. Outwit being present on her top three clicks will be very useful for her to limit opposing figures' options to retaliate or to drop their defenses even further.  Energy Shield/Deflection, also on her first three clicks, will help her defend against opposing ranged attacks followed by Toughness for extra durability.

Of special note is that her dial includes a STOP click, which means players must stop turning the dial when her special power, The Shredder Bluff, is revealed, even if she was supposed to have taken more damage. There's nothing more intimidating than disguising yourself in Shredder's armor, so Karai can really pack a punch while on this click. The Shredder Bluff lets Karai use Close Combat Expert, but also lets players give Karai a free action to make a ranged attack that deals penetrating damage equal to the attack total minus the target's defense value, instead of normal damage. Since Karai also possesses Sidestep on this click, she can use Close Combat Expert if she's adjacent to an opposing character and then attempt to breakaway on a Sidestep to hopefully use the special ability at range (or vice versa, with the free action ranged attack first and then Sidestepping into adjacency for an attack using Close Combat Expert).  For 80 points, Karai is capable of dealing serious damage whether she's at range with her bow & arrow or up close and personal with opposing characters.

That wraps it up for today.  Stay tuned for our next preview for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix: Heroes in a Half Shell Gravity Feed.  Go get on the phone, the pizzas don’t order themselves!

New from Game Salute! Riftwalker & Alien Frontiers Big Box!

Street Date: November 11, 2016


$20.00 SRP
$10.00 NPI

Explore the rifts of Storm Hollow, build an array of amazing powers, and trigger burst of magical energy to score big in this strategy card game. In Riftwalker, players use a central grid of elements composed of earth, wind, fire, water, storm, and life to play rift cards from their hand or shift rifts they already have in play.

Shifting a Rift is a Riftwalker's magical ability to change the nature of a place by calling on and altering the elements. Shifting turns a card sideways and increases its point value. Every time a rift card is played or shifted, it activates a special power that alters a player's cards or the central grid in a useful way. As the game progresses, players will build up a unique set of abilities.

Earth rifts empower shifted rifts while fire burns them down for points. Water rifts spread more rifts across the land and life rifts grow them to great value. Storm rifts control the element grid and wind rifts play all kinds of tricks. Eventually, players must create lines of elements on the grid to score their rifts. In the end, the player with the greatest rifts and the most points wins the game!


  • 15 Element Cards
  • 52 Rift Cards
  • 4 Score Pile Cards
  • 4 Reference Cards
