Grimdark Future is a single-page miniatures game set in a war-torn sci-fi future, designed to be easy to learn but hard to master. The game is played with 30-40 models per army, giving you big battles that can be played in 60-90 minutes.
Background Story[edit | edit source]
Humanity on earth split into two major factions, one faction trusted in their faith, while the other believed in their reason. There was a great war which threatened to destroy what little remained of Earth, so colonization ships were shot far into space to escape this madness. The ships arrived in a region of space which would be named the Sirius Sector, where humanity met other alien species for the first time and realized they were but tiny specks in the vast unknown.
The God-King, powerful ruler and master of genetic manipulation carves out a place for humanity with the might of his Battle Brothers. Now he starts to get a bit big for his boots, demanding worship and controversially deeming women unfit to fight in his armies. Yeah. So a once-respected female general of his old armies creates the Battle Sisters, dubbed by her legions the God-Queen.
The Human Defense Force (HDF) takes most of the empire at the time and looks after it for the good of the people really (they're really great guys) with the Battle Sisters bouncing around and being fanatical warriors-of-justice types.
The elves used to be the dominant species in the Sirius sector, but they messed up and created the Robot Legions who went full murder crazy. The higher echelons of the society escaped in big spaceships and became the High Elf Fleets, whilst the lower parts of society who survived became the betrayed Dark Elf Raiders.
For the other factions, the TAO Coalition are a race of xenos (alien) species who have joined together to create a glorious new collective. Alien Hives are constantly-evolving lifeforms that exist purely to consume bio matter, using soul-snatchers as fore-fronts to scout and lead the attack.
