That Bolt Action Rumour about fantasy is actually "Fantares" It's a version
of Beyond the Gates of Antares that Rick Priestley is working on, early
beta testing so far. The intent is that you can use existing fantasy
collections to play a game similar to Antares.

It's not bolt action and warlord aren't all that interested in releasing
fantasy miniatures so they might not publish it.

It's a fantasy version of Beyond the Gates of Antares rather than Bolt Action (unless they are doing both); it was being playtested at an event over the weekend, I believe. The working title is "Fantares".

Was first mentioned around December last year, and it uses Beyond the Gates of Antares as a base not BA. So d10s are the main dice used. Mothers is a video floating around YouTube of a game with Rick Priestley. "Fantares" is what it has been dubbed at this stage
