Dark Angels, eh, Matthew? A tasty snack for my orks, I reckon :wink: You keep dropping tantalising hints about Mongose's plans for the minis market. I would love to see the company expanding in that direction once more. The new Call to Arms has some nice models and very solid rules; and the Judge Dr...

GW price hikes leave a place in the market?

Seems to me that - one failed forray into the market not withstanding - the time is right for Mongoose to launch a fantasy miniatures games. There are a lot of GW fans out there who seem pretty ticked-off with the so-far-above-inflation-it-isn't-funny price increases that are being imposed. Mongoose...

The Deus Vult character sheet is FANTASTIC. I am very impressed. In fact, I shall print out a copy of this for everyone in my RP group.

Again, fantastic work! :D

Hopefully, given the fact Wayfarer is essentially RuneQuest 2 by any other name, there won't be delays imposed on an DV books in the pipeline. Certainly, that's my willfully up-beat reading of the situation. I guess Matthew is the only one who can really clarify things...(hint, hint) :D

So, no more Glorantha material... But, RQ2 lives on and will continue to be supported by Mongoose? I certainly hope so, because I think it's a great system. The Deus Vult campaign I'm playing at the moment is as much fun as I've had with a game in years. And I like the look of the Age of Treason boo...

Excellent! I missed that one. Was their publicity in S&P?

Any chance of the novel being available as a print on demand publication? I maintain my old-fashioned sensibilities in that I like to hold a book in my hand.

Nice one, Matthew. Good to hear there are more books being considered. It seems a setting with a barely scratched surface so far.

And 'second' novel. What happened to the first?...

Nice issue. I am half way through the article exploring the 'goose's first ten years. Feeling a little nostalgic. It would be nice if the miniatures side of things turns out better this time. I remember attending the Alpha Strike Tournament for Starship troopers 'back in the day' (it's where I nabbe...

I'd also like a creature book. Deus Vult is not a seting with orks, trolls and other generic fantasy fare. Creatures drawn from medieval folklore - from the Middle East and Northern Africa as much as from Europe - would be cool. There's nothing worse than introducing a group of experienced players t...

I'm not familar with RQ Empires myself. The Deus Vult campaign I'm running has the PCs complete more investigative adventures. I guess 'management' issues might arrise once they are higher ranks. For now, though, I'd just love to have more information on the world. Europe in 1189 is certainly not yo...

A Deus Vult supplement on the Holy Land would be fantastic. In fact, there are lots of location books that would be good.

I haven't seen any plans to release more Deus Vult stuff, though :(

OK, thanks. There must have been a slight change from the version shown on the website or, at least, it looks that way to me.

Hmm...No sign of mine. I wonder if I discarded them without realising what they were?

I have some tiny round, two-barrelled turrets but they do not look like the squarer ones in the photos of the tupok'ta. I wonder which ship they go with?... :?

Models different from pictures?

I received my Decados fleet - very nice. But the Decados Tupok'ta Destroyers don't seem to have the guns that can be seen on the website photo. Am I missing something? Are they an extra stick-on part that I've somehow managed to lose already? If there is some assembly required, it might be nice to h...

I'm looking forward to Mongoose relaeasing the Fading Suns RPG material. There should be a nice overlap with the new ACTA.

Any plans for further Deus Vult books?

It seems to me there's plenty of room to expand this setting. For example, I'd love to see a supplement about the Holy Land. A bestiary would also be good, as would a general supplement providing more equipment, magic, character creation options and so forth.

Wow - those models look really nice. Can't wait for this game to hit the shelves. I am one of those that still laments Mongoose's exit from the miniatures market a few years back.
