DescriptionEdit

Turning Points: War of 3039 Vega (shorted as TP:3039 Vega) is part of the Turning Points series, which is the seventh release of a PDF web exclusive product produced by Catalyst Game Labs set in the Succession Wars Era. The product uses the Chaos Campaign rules and provides a campaign setting for players to fight the world of Vega, where the newborn Federated Commonwealth attempts to take the world from it's current owners

The product provides details on organization of factions lances not seen in modern products. The book is hybrid of both Alpha Strike and Total Warfare game rules.

Product Write UpEdit

The wait is over as the Federated Commonwealth hammer falls upon the Draconis Combine. The War of 3039’s Commonwealth Thrust focuses on Vega, a world of burning sands, blazing sun, and the ruins of ancient Star League technology. A combined force of Steiner, Davion, and mercenary units showcases the massive alliance and technology of the Federated Commonwealth. The Combine defense, led by the Legions of Vega, is determined to justify the reforms and faith of the Coordinator. They will not surrender their homeworld easily.

Turning Points: War of 3039 Vega uses Chaos Campaign rules to give players the option of fighting individual battles, following a campaign arc, or inserting the heated battle for Vega into their own campaigns. Included are a detailed map of the world of Vega, full details of the forces involved in the conflict, and scenario tracks recreating the battles on Vega. The only limits are the players’ imaginations!
