Seeds of War Rule Set & Stats
Seeds of War is being promoted by various people all over the world, and there is nothing more helpful than having a decent set of rules to use at demos.
We are going through each document ensuring that it is consistent as well as easy to understand. In addition, we are play-testing various new units and correcting any gliches that may come up through unusual or untested circumstances. Should you find any strange scenarios that you have come across and would like to talk about, by all means, either drop us a line via email or visit the forums and chat about it there.
The illustrated version of the rule set has now been started and I really look forward to seeing how this develops. There will be a lot more content and formatting that may be brought over to the unillustrated version and we have some really good people helping out to get this right and make it worthwhile, so I will keep you updated as this progresses.
If you wasn't aware of it, there are army guides available for download for the Pax Arcadian and Kraytonian races. The Andrayada army guide is still being worked on and should be available very soon. We hope these army guides give you a little insight into the various units and help decide what's best for you and how you play. If you have any feedback on how different units can be used to your advantage, we would love to hear about it. It might even improve my own game! So don't just take our word for it, send in your own tips about what works for you!
Back in February (Wow! Has time flown!) we spoke about background for the various races and how that's being worked on. A lot of effort is being put into this and it's taking time to get this right. So rather than releasing it all at once, I am going to release it on the website in stages, while the work is being put together as a downloadable PDF file. This way you can see the work as we progress. Without giving too much away, Bob Naismith was kind enough to help us out with the artwork that will accompany the background and will also hint at what may come in the future.
Alien Race Competition
This had been delayed due to my very busy timetable, but early September we did manage to find a winner from all the entries. Thomas Foss came up with the idea of calling them the Skyth. So firstly, congratulations again to Thomas and thanks also to the people who took part. We had some very good entries and found it hard to pick a winner from those that we liked, so well done.
Due to the lack of updates and new releases, some people had grown concerned that we had either a problem with casting or were experiencing difficulties in general. That is not the case and we have several casters actually helping us to get some of the releases ready. There are many models at various stages so I didn't feel that it was in our best interest to stick with just one caster. We also needed to speed up the master moulding and casting of new models which had really proved to a be a problem when trying to keep to a schedule.
At the end of this month and November, there will be a number of blisters released. If all goes to plan, you will have some additions to all races: Andrayada, Kraytonian, Pax Arcadian and Skyth. So more on that later this month as to what will be put on the list.
