Re: Vanguard - The Kickstarter is Live!

We looked at exactly that size, but during playtesting we found the larger boards just worked better.

As for warping, we are using very thick cardstock. If you have seen GW style boards, you will know what we are going for.

Re: Vanguard - The Kickstarter is Live!

Later today or tomorrow, we will be showcasing all the models (at least, as they stand now - always subject to revision!), and the full force lists will follow soon after!

What about a pdf copy of the rulebook?
Most of the rulebook (in the very least) will be freely available during the Kickstarter.

As someone that plays online more often than not what’s the possibility of a digital version of this?
Beyond the scope of the Kickstarter, but this is indeed a possibility that is being discussed.

Re: Vanguard - The Kickstarter is Live!

Looks like fun! Does any game mode require more than one box’s worth of models? Playing on a battleship for instance... or does the size of ship affect the amount of reserve troops both sides have but not how many are deployed at once? The latter - you have enough to play with one set, on any size ...

Re: State of Legend

Work continues on Cities of Legend: Stormhaven. Whether it fits with Matt's ideas of what he'd like to do with Legend I don't know but I do know that once I've finished the conversion I will approach Matt and see if he's still interested The answer is going to be yes, but we have a graphics backlog...

This is indeed one we are looking at revising - have a look at the new Pearl Harbour scenario if you can, and let me know if that approach works better for you...

Is this the mercenaries thing linked to the 5th frontier war that was mentioned a while ago or an additional look at that time period?
No, a new Mercenary book would be a separate project. Bubbling nicely in the background though...

Re: So...about State of the Mongoose 2017...

Well... We would indeed like this to be the first of a small line of Traveller miniatures games. While ships will not be the second game... it looks like they will be the third (and possibly fourth, but I digress).

Re: Necomancer The Dark Road questions
