We’re taking a short break from sharing battle reports in order to bring you some good news when it comes to the release of the 3rd wave armies and other things. After a lot of hard work we are finally getting closer to the release of the next big update, and things are pretty exciting behind the scenes.
3rd Wave Armies
The biggest and most important thing to know is that we have finally completed work on the 12 new armies that are going to be released, and unless we discover any major flaws in them they are pretty much locked down.
Those that have backed us on Patreon are already able to playtest the armies and provide us with feedback, and hopefully these armies will come out to the whole community soon for everyone to enjoy.
Working on the 3rd wave has also brought us to realize that there were a lot of little changes we wanted to make to the core engine, which brings us to the next point…
Core Engine Changes
So since the 3rd wave armies are ready, why haven’t we released them yet? What the hell are we waiting for?! Is this madness!?!
Like we mentioned before we are making a lot of small changes to the core engine because we realized that some special rules were not as fun as we wanted them to be, and whilst working on those we realized that there were some special rules that were priced incorrectly.
But then whilst working on those we also realized that the base cost of certain quality values was priced incorrectly too, so in order to make things right we are going to have to go back and re-work a couple of units from almost every army.
Whilst this won’t be delaying the release by a lot, it will still have an impact. Also a fair warning: a lot of the high quality / high defense values are about to get a lot more expensive, so expect to re-work your Battle Brother army lists soon…
Thanks to the help of our community we were finally able to find an artist that was able to satisfy our needs, and since he came highly recommended we are sure that a couple of you will recognize his work and be very happy.
In any case, we don’t want to say too much now, but we are well underway in the creation of the cover art for the 2 main games, and right now we are about halfway through, which is really really awesome.
As things move along we will probably make some more posts about it, but I think that we will most likely be releasing the new cover art as part of the 3rd wave update.
To be honest the layout changes are a mixed bag.
For the full rulebook we have been working on layout changes that should make things look a lot better, and we are also trying to get some more illustrations to be added to it in order to spice things up (because in our minds more pictures = better).
For the army books however things are kinda stalled and we won’t be releasing the new layout with the 3rd wave armies. This is mainly because we haven’t found a good balance between making things more visually pleasing and maintaining a compact look, but we will keep testing things until we find something that works.
And that’s it for now…
We’ll probably be making a couple more battle report updates in the future so that you can check out how other people play our games, and as soon as we have more news on the 3rd wave release they will be shared here.
