Ninja Division Publishing and Soda Pop Miniatures are excited to announce Relic Knights: 2nd Edition and its
first expansion Void Break. Relic Knights: 2nd Edition and Void Break will feature new and revised rules for
the Relic Knights miniature skirmish game, a new 2-Player Starter, brand new units, beautiful new sculpts for
many existing units, gorgeous new art, and exciting fiction continuing and expanding the Relic Knights
universe. The Relic Knights: 2nd Edition Rulebook, 2-Player Player Starter, and Void Break expansion book will
be launched through Kickstarter in the last half of February, 2017.

2nd Edition Rules

The 2nd Edition rules are an evolution and refinement of the Relic Knights 1.5 rules which were released in
downloadable form in 2016. The new rules continue to feature Relic Knights’ unique card-based mechanic
where players manage a hand of esper to initiate powerful attacks and actions; as well as the ready queue
mechanic where you must carefully plan your units’ order of activation to maximize their potential and
impact on the game.

Units are now organized into two categories, Heroes and minions. Whenever a Hero is activated they may also
activate a minion, allowing these units to perform their vital battlefield roles, without taking space in your
ready queue. Unsurprisingly, the mighty Knights with lead your cadres are powerful Heroes, who are
instrumental in unlocking your entire cadre’s full potential.

Every unit in Relic Knights will be completely updated, with many units acquiring brand new upgrade options,
such as special weapons, alternate gear, and unique abilities, allowing players to customize their cadres to
their specific playstyle. An upgrade deck will be available (and included for free in Kickstarter pledges) for
veteran players to be able to quickly and easily update their existing collection to 2nd Edition.


Beautiful New Models

Soda Pop and Ninja Division are committed to making Relic Knights a stunning visual experience on your
gaming table. As part of that commitment the studio has taken a hard look at the entire Relic Knights range of
plastic miniatures to determine which models meet our standards for quality, and which must be retired and
given the gorgeous resculpts they deserve. Those models that didn’t pass review will be discontinued
immediately and will be resculpted and manufactured in high-quality resin. Models which passed review will
be repackaged and updated for 2nd Edition, being resculpted and making the transition to resin only once the
existing stock has been depleted. You can follow this link to find a complete list of which models will be
discontinued, resculpted, or continue into Relic Knights: 2nd Edition.


Resculpts are not the only part of 2nd Edition! In 2016 Soda Pop and Ninja Division released a small sample of
the new units coming to the Relic Knights universe. These models were only the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
In addition to the original units from Darkspace Calamity, the 2nd Edition rulebook will feature two additional
units per faction, and the Void Break expansion will feature four more new units per faction. The Prismatic
sub-factions (Void and Radiant) will also receive a massive influx of new units allowing them to provide
additional options to the six primary factions, but also the ability to be played as standalone cadres. More
Darkspace units are also ready to join your cadres. This all combines to make Relic Knights: 2nd Edition a
bonanza of exciting and breathtaking new models for fans of Relic Knights!

More to Come!

Over the coming days we will be previewing new models, fiction, art, and designer diaries in preparation for
the Kickstarter launch. Be sure to watch and our facebook pages to learn more about Relic Knights!
