While officially labeled a miniatures supplement for the tactical game, Raids & Raiders also provides background information, NPCs, roleplaying scenarios, and a few additional gears and vehicles for RPG use.
From the back cover:
Unable to wage a full interstellar invasion, the Black Talon strike forces and their CEF/Caprice counterparts conduct raids and commando operations deep behind enemy lines. As stealthed shuttles glide through previously unknown Gates, both sides wage a quiet war to cripple the other's strategic assets in preparation for a future rematch. And sometimes, they have to content with trouble at home as well...
This sourcebook includes:
- Background information on the strike operations and the teams conducting them.
- Instructions and techniques on building and painting minatures and terrain, presented in glorious color.
- Basic listings for both raiding and defending forces from the Northern Guard, Southern MILICIA, CEF, and other armies.
- Tactical and roleplaying scenarios that can be played together or separately.
- A detailed scenario generator to construct your own raiding scenarios.
