It’s the Annual House Colos Holiday Turducken Shoot! (and That Means a SALE!)

Every winter as the old year is in its final weeks on Colosia Prime, the Colosian aristocracy bid farewell to the old year and celebrate the coming new year with their annual Turkducken Festival. This is a very Colosian period of celebration, with much merrymaking, joyful family gatherings, feasting, and “unfortunate accidents” and a few cases of “bad luck” involving too much champagne and balconies on high rise buildings.

The pinnacle of the celebration is the opening of the annual Turducken Shoot held in Duke Colos’s personal game preserve. There the best, brightest, and most fearless members of the top Colosian aristocratic families lay aside their differences and together hunt the native Turducken to be the centerpiece of the traditional holiday feast. To commemorate this august tradition of festive cheer and dagger-in-the-back enhanced family gatherings, we’re launching our first annual House Colos Turducken Festival Sale!

All miniatures in our Metal Express webstore are 20% off. Just use the following code at checkout to do your part to help celebrate this fine old Colosian tradition (and do so without risking any “hunting accidents” that more than a few Colosian bluebloods succumb to each year):  turduckenshoot2017

    Hi. A couple of comments:
    a) I registered as XVS650 a couple of days ago, but I haven’t seen any response.

    b) I am a newbie to SD. I’ve bought the core rules PDF download. What about minis? Is there a recommended set of ships that I should start off with as a beginner?

    Welcome to the Interstellar Flying Circus! To answer your questions, (a) registration is automatic, although you will need to register separately for the Metal Express Forum. We recommend you use the same user name but a different password to keep things simple. (b) Start with the twelve Core Ships. You can order one or more spruces of the plastics (the most economical option), or the metal examples. Please note that due to the physical differences between spin casting metal and injection plastic molding, the metal and plastic Core Ships have some recognizable differences in appearance.

    My personal taste is that you should start with at least two of each type (i.e., two sprues) so you can practice with using basic fighter wing tactics (ie., a leader and a wingman). Also, because our plastic ship sprues are sent from our U.S. based fulfillment center, you’ll get the plastic ships much faster than metal minis, as those ship directly from our contract caster in Canada (and alas, Canada Post is, er… eccentric to put it politely).

    Hope this all helps, and again, welcome!
