Lockwood’s Iron Fusion have an update this week. Here’s what they have to say about it:
“Your galaxy needs you!
A few weeks ago, a bold Abyss Trooper unit were mapping an uncharted sector of space on behalf of Astra Corps. Several days into their mission, their communications with Astra Corps HQ ceased. No distress calls were placed, so Astra Corps remain hopeful that their team have merely strayed into a communications black spot.
The last unit sent to this particular sector also lost communication for several days, before returning to base ahead of schedule unharmed yet disoriented and with little memory of their experiences. Astra Corps are not ruling out the possibility of extra-terrestrial intervention and have therefore embarked upon a major recruitment drive.
Their hardy ground troops, the Solar Fusiliers are looking to swell their ranks by a few thousand. If you think you have the skill and diplomacy to talk your way out of a tight corner, as well as the strength and determination to dig deep on a tough mission, then Astra Corps needs you! Get to Iron Fusion, get your Solar Fusilier Uniform and get in line!”
