Forging a stronger tomorrow from the ashes of mankind's yesterdays.
-Blacksmyth Corps motto
The Blacksmyth Corps is a disavowed component of the Homeworld Intelligence Bureau - the clandestine branch of the Homeworld Defense Corps. Blacksmyth teams are composed of hyper-elite agents dispatched on sensitive assignments, and often capable of commandeering other Confederate armed forces for their operations. The Blacksmyth Corps is also tasked with the covert acquisition and development of illicit technologies in their blacksite installations, and is rumored to even have involvement in illegal programs such as the Agoge Foundation’s "Project Paragon."
The near-limitless reach and seemingly bottomless resources of the Blacksmyth Corps are feared by other clandestine organizations across the Spur… assuming they even know of its existence.
The Blacksmyth Project is the next evolution of the Breachstorm Miniatures Game; and will seek to explore the deep universe of the Spur with the regular release of new rules content.
New profiles and factions will become available over the coming months branded with the logo of the Blacksmyth Corps - these new releases will be model-agnostic and completely suitable for matched play, but will see rapid updates based on feedback and playtesting to maintain balance.
Blacksmyth Project profiles will also be legal for organized play as long as suitable stand-in miniatures are used per the Tactical Ops Game Component Standards.
New Faction Available - Ativari Conclave
Under the umbrella of the Blacksmyth Project, we're excited to finally be able to release unit profiles for the enigmatic Ativari Conclave. These shadowy alien assassins have undergone years of iteration and balancing to stay in-step with the three existing factions while offering a completely unique playstyle.
Release 2.4 of the Ativari Conclave unit profiles are currently available on the Rules page.
In the document you'll find not only profile cards for six new units, but also corresponding Adaptive Combatskin reference cards.
These reference cards contain all the info for each unit's Adaptive Combatskin enhancements, and are an easy way to keep track of each model's currently activated subsystems across your entire team!
We'll delve more deeply into each unit's background and mechanics on a future post.
See you in the combat zone, operators!
