Today we’re very excited to kick off the new year with a new version of our games, as well as a ton of other stuff for you to see, from new physical minis, to new pics of painted models.
Let’s get to it!
New Game Versions
Over the last few months we’ve been working really hard on updating all of the core rules, basic rulebooks and full rulebooks for all of our games, and it’s finally time to release these new version for everyone to enjoy.
This is a mostly superficial update, with 99% of the updates being either rule clarifications or grammatical fixes, which don’t change how the game is played, and so we won’t bore you with the details. Suffice to say, those 99% of updates are subtle enough that you won’t even notice they ever happened, but they serve to improve the quality of our rules.
The are some other instances where it might seem that a rule has changed, but instead it was just clarified from what its original intention was. For example, Aircraft was never meant to be able to seize objectives, so we’ve clarified that by explicitly stating that it can’t. Basically, some of the FAQ stuff is now in the rules.
The other 1% of changes however, we should highlight so that you won’t miss them:
- Blast now ignores cover, and can’t deal more hits than models in the tagret unit.
- Anti-Air is now called Lock-On, and ignores all negative modifiers to hit rolls and range.
- In AoFS, each army may now only take one Sergeant, Musician or Banner.
The biggest change that affects all games is to the Blast rule. Until now, the Blast rule was essentially just fluff, as it was a straight multiplier to the number of hits dealt. With this new version, we wanted to give the Blast rule more functionality by making it ignore cover, as well as giving it a specialized anti-horde role. Blast now can’t deal more hits than models in the target, which means that now a weapon with A1 Blast(6) firing at a lonely hero or tank can only deal max. 1 hit to it.
Another important update, which only applies to GF and GFF, is that the “Anti-Air” rule has been re-named to “Lock-On”, and has been given more functionality. It was very limiting to have a rule that essentially only works if the enemy has Aircraft, so now the Lock-On rule ignores negative modifiers to hit rolls and range instead. This means that it retains its functionality as an anti-aircraft weapon, but can now also be used more effectively against targets in cover, targets with shield wall, etc.
Finally, we’ve changed the limitation of Command Group models in AoFS from being able to take one model of each type (Sergeant, Musician, Banner), to only being able to take one model of any type. We found that at such small game sizes, being able to stack the bonuses together was too powerful, so it was changed.
That’s it for the most important changes to gameplay.
We’re going to be closely monitoring feedback on the new versions over the next month, to see if anyone can catch some grammatical mistakes we’ve missed, or if some of the new text is still unclear. If this period of testing goes well, then we’re going to work on finally getting you physical version of the rulebooks later this year. The physical rulebooks will be made available through PoD on WGV/DTRPG, and we’ll provide more info as things move forward.
Enjoy the new changes! :)
New Mission Packs
The January mission pack has been released on Patreon, with 4 brand new missions:
- Grimdark Future – Fire & Rubble
- GF: Firefight – Spec Ops
- Age of Fantasy – Lost in the Mist
- AoF: Skirmish – Bloodbath
These missions are focused on fun new ways to play, with interesting objectives and special rules to spice things up. We release new missions every month, so make sure to stick around so that you don’t miss any.
Note that whilst the missions are designed for each specific game, you can totally play them with the rules for any other game (with slight adjustments). This means that you have even more missions to play each month!
