Published by Warlord Games, Beyond the Gates of Antares is a relatively new sci-fi miniature Wargame created and designed by Rick Priestley. Priestley is of course famous as one of the key figures in the development of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000.
The game and its setting contains examples of:
- Absent Aliens: Averted. All playable factions are human or human-descended, but there definitely are powerful alien civilizations in the setting, including, at some point in the distant past, the Builders.
- Earth That Was: Earth was destroyed ages ago during long forgotten wars in a previous cycle of human interstellar civilization called the "Prime Imperia".
- Space Marine: Strike Troopers from the Panhuman Concord are the bog-standard space marines of the setting. They are pictured in the page image.
- Transhuman Aliens: So much. Every playable race so far is human or evolved from human stock in some way.
