The base game comes with 8 alien races (if memory serves correct), and so does the miniatures pack. BUT, soon as you buy any of the expansions, new races are introduced. But they are not included in the miniatures pack, correct?

Seems a little strange to "expand" the universe and not match it with appropriate minis if gamers want. Otherwise the AtS universe is consistent; even New Dawn features the same, original 8 alien races.

Thoughts on this apparent oversight? Or are there minis for every alien race that I'm unaware of?

My guess is that the sales of the first miniatures pack were only mediocre, so a 2nd miniature pack won't happen ... soblue

Eclipse: Ship Pack One suffers the same fate ... no pack 2 ... cry

If Artipia Games designs more ambassadors for New Dawn, I would definitely be interested in miniature pack 2. New Dawn only comes with 8 ambassadors which means only 1 is not going to be used if played with 4. More variation would be nice. At the moment, there are no gameplay features that would require more alien sculpts so I don't seem Miniature Pack 2 that necessary yet.

At the moment, the miniature pack can be used with New Dawn and AtS Revival. In both games, the races that can be represented by miniatures are the ones included in the Miniature pack. There will be another pack as soon as more of the races are used that way by those or other games
