Today we’re coming back at you with the 3D print survey results, as well as some much needed army updates, and finally a battle report too!
3D Print Survey Results
The 3D print survey results are in, and honestly a lot of stuff was expected, like most people wanting 28mm models, wanting heroes/infantry kits, and being mostly interested in Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy.
So let’s get to the interesting bit, and instead show you the top 5 armies that players are interested in:
- Battle Sisters
- Robot Legions
- Battle Brothers
- Alien Hives
- Machine Cult
Seeing these results we’ve decided that our first miniatures set is going to be for the Battle Sisters, and once we’re done with that we’ll make another poll.
Whilst these 5 were the most requested armies, there were plenty of other armies that all got a couple of votes each, and we think that there’s definitely some value added to not only release models for the most popular armies, but to also try out cool stuff that players don’t necessarily expect.
If this 3D print project goes well and enough people sign up to Tier 3 on Patreon, then we’re going to try and release two sets of miniatures each month, one set for the most popular armies, and one set for some underserved armies (or something completely different and cool).
So what’s next?
Well, we’ve already started working on the Battle Sisters set, which will hopefully be released at the beginning of March, and then everyone can sign up to get the models.
After that we’re going to be making a new survey for the next month’s models, which will again be release at the beginning of the next month, etc.
One thing that’s worthy of notice, we already have some Battle Brothers miniatures available, and we’re going to be re-working them for out CGTrader page. These minis are going to always remain free, just to give people a taste of the quality we provide, as well giving them an opportunity to do some test prints before delving deeper.
This week we’re releasing a very important update, which entails the splitting of various combined armies into individual armies, as well as some other small patches.
For GF/GFF we’re splitting up the Mercenaries into 3 factions, each with their own army illustration as well as a new background story section.
Then we’re also splitting up the Battle Brothers and Prime Brothers into individual factions in response to more and more Prime Brothers models being released, and if we keep them together the list is going to blow up into something gigantic.
We’re also updating the Prime Brothers with new weapons and upgrades, as the list needed some maintenance to keep it up to standard.
For AoF/AoFS we’re splitting up the Dwarves into 3 factions, each with their own army illustration as well as a new background story section.
Splitting up the armies into individual factions is being done in order to avoid rules bloat, to make armies easier to find in the army folder, and also because it makes them easier to implement in something big that’s coming in the future. ;)
Here the full patch notes:
- Heroes with Jetpacks now ignore the Slow rule
Havoc Brother Disciples
- Change Brothers now have AP(1) on their Assault Rifles
- Split armies into single factions: Human Inquisition, Elven Jesters, Feudal Guard
- Added new unit: Grave Captain
- Heroes have more ranged and melee upgrades now
- Re-worked Auto-Rifles to have 3 attacks
- Prime Brothers can now swap any Auto-Rifle for a Rifle or Precision Rifle
- Prime Brothers can take Grenade Launcher Auto-Rifle attachments
- Raider Squads now come with Heavy Pistols
- Elimination Squads can now upgrade with Laser Rifles
Age of Fantasy
- Split armies into single factions: Dwarves, Volcanic Dwarves, Sky-City Dwarves
- Elf Princes can now be upgraded with Wizard(1)
Age of Fantasy: Skirmish – Solo AI Batrep
Finally because this is something we don’t get so often, Sad and Lonely Gamer has posted up another excellent solo AI batrep, this time playing AoF: Skirmish.
The match features a quick and bloody skirmish of Eternal Wardens vs Orcs, make sure to check it out and subscribe to his channel!
That’s it for today, but that’s in no way all we have to offer, and there’s so many new exciting things coming soon that we just can’t wait to share… but we still have to!
