Breaching the Rift is a Skirmish game based in the Reteytou universe. That’s right, we have a Skirmish game…
The game is in development and we will be demoing it at shows as it progresses. We have a group of people who are play testing it and we are constantly trying to update it to make it the best we can. The rules will be FREE to download from our website when they are ready along with an option to buy a digital copy to help support the project and keep it moving forward. There will also be an expanded version with the background to the universe in that you won’t get in the FREE download version.
The game is a passion for us, and something that we want to create to explore and tell the story of the fantastical Science Fiction universe that has been created over the last 28 years. When we thought of how to do this, a Skirmish game was the natural choice. It gave us the right size battlefield to tell the stories we wanted to, and to not be so big that the game become laborious and drawn out.
You can either play the standard one a side Skirmish games or as a co-operative game. There will be narrative missions and a campaign in the paid version of the game with future plans to create further campaigns based on the rich background of the universe it inhabits.
If you’re interested in becoming one of the play testers for the game then please get in contact via the contact form below. We want to make this game one that we can all be proud of, both us here at Gydran Miniatures and you guys. It’s through working together that we can create great things.

There are currently four factions and three sub factions in the game, with plans for more. You have the Dweorg (and their three sub factions), The Bahara Initiative, The Anthros Collective (otherwise known as the Space Critters), and Unit 255. There are also a collection of hired guns including Mercenaries, Assassins and Raiders for you to add to your forces, at a price of course.
