Mantic Previews Firefight 2nd Edition Veer-myn

As Firefight 2nd edition gets closer to release, everyone wants to know how their armies will be changing. Mantic's been going through them, giving you some insight. This time around, it's the Veer-myn.

From the article:

Not all the enemies of the GCPS are obvious or easy to find. Some are altogether far more insidious. Take the Veer-myn for example. It is said that you are never more than a few metres away from one, no matter where you stand in the GCPS. This is not strictly true. There are places mankind has colonised that even the Veer-myn would not choose to go. But there are nests of these rat-like aliens on almost every large starship and within most large colonies of sentient beings inside the five Spheres. And yet, most humans have never seen a Veer-myn alive.

The Veer-myn achieve this anonymity by carving out a life in all the places no other species would ever choose to go; amidst the sewage systems and throughout the electrical ducts. Amongst the abandoned maintenance sub-levels and the forgotten mine workings. Crawl spaces between decks and purpose-dug excavations beneath foundations all provide ample opportunities for a Veer-myn colony. Space to live and space to breathe. Space to build and space in which to breed. They steal what technology and materials they can from their hosts, all the while growing in strength and numbers.

Studying the Veer-myn is a dangerous and difficult proposition as they do not like other races, despite living so close to them. This has not deterred the brave researchers employed by ETCU though. Through their bold and imaginative actions, and thanks to all their consequent sacrifices, the GCPS’s understanding of the Veer-myn grows all the time.
