Fearless and Innumerable

Announcing the upcoming Matriarchy Troop Pack for Tannhäuser

“They are as numberless as the waves upon the shore. We can only hope to defeat them through superior tactics.”       –from an intercepted Japanese report

With pride in the motherland, the innumerable soldati of the Matriarchy march forward – faith in their gods and honor for their leaders carrying them onward when their bodies fail.

Fantasy Flight Games is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of the Matriarchy Troop Pack for Tannhäuser! This useful addition further expands the Matriarchy faction by adding two stunningly painted miniatures (one Boepripacy Soldat and one Zazigag Soldat), along with game tokens, equipments cards, and a detailed 12-page rulebook with an all-new scenario.

The Boepripacy Soldat

The army of the Matriarchy is a well-oiled machine, kept in working shape due to the constant vigil kept by the Directorate and the Commissariat. A delicate balance of tradition, zeal, and fear keeps the soldati of the Matriarchy from giving up in the face of their determined enemies.

Exceptional soldati, found to be utterly loyal to the gods and unwilling to flee in the face of danger, are made boepripacy – ammunition soldati. These fearless warriors carry the majority of the ammo for their squadmates, who will do everything in their power to keep the boepripacy alive. The extra ammunition is held in specially locked cases that can only be unlocked by the boepripacy. Thus, if a boepripacy dies, the unit cannot hope to last long.

The Zazigag Soldat

Armed with the Gnev Bogov Ognemet, a flamethrower capable of calling down the judgment of the Slavic gods, the Zazigag Soldati are elite warriors who have distinguished themselves in combat. Only by displaying the utmost faith and loyalty to the Matriarchy may a soldat be trusted with such a devastating weapon.

Attacks with the Gnev Bogov Ognemet bathe their target in agonizing flame, and the weapon’s explosive range is such that anyone standing nearby will likewise be engulfed. Such an attack damages mind at least as much as body, leaving witnesses in a state of shock and terror. It is no wonder, therefore, that Zazigag Soldati are among the most hardened of Matriarchy soldiers. Not only are they accustomed to war’s most horrific sights, but they thrive on them.

Begin the Siege

Ready for your first mission with these loyal soldiers? The included scenario pits a Nippon Accords force against an alliance of UMTOMA soldiers, as the Reich’s Karl Zermann attempts to recover an ancient artifact for Von Heïzinger.

Keep checking back for more on Tannhäuser, and look for the Matriarchy Troop Pack on store shelves in the fourth quarter of 2011!
