  1. @Spartan Neil dropping that good info! There ya have it folks! Get those canucks and Templars ready for action! Going to be fun stuff! -Mike
  2. Yes indeed for fleet action too! -Mike
  3. They are coming! We are getting it all rolled out for you guys to get gaming and playing in 2.5... with some new ones coming soon (operation:northstar!) When we have all these preliminary ORBATS out, we can start the exciting process of getting all the awesome tooling and balanced polish applied to all the nations, with all the new bells and whistles that you have all been enthusiastically asking and recommending. -Mike
  4. @Ozysturn there is a lot of work that is going to be done to these amazing little devils from beyond our world. While I cannot yet comment on exact details, I can assure you that they will be getting some attention. Big Boss Neil has made it very clear that he wants to see them get a strong update in a variety of awesome and otherworldly ways! when I have something more solid to share, you can bet you will see some info get dropped in a blog or rampart posts! Cant ever forget about the little green men! -Mike
  5. @Gonmoa oh we certainly did! and personally, given the difference between the two vessels in form and function I am going to have to disagree! I still think I am a bit more terrified of the raw efficient power of the Raj HBB! The Egypt HBB is a scary bloated monster, but it performs its devastation in a very different way and comes with its own limitations... and nobody ever said the Raj were not going to get some new toys or updated stats in the future either! -Mike
  6. @Maccabeus @Gen. Eric as noted in another thread... dont worry about that generator bud... Or the ORBAT for you crazy Danes! This is a get ya by list. We have a lot of polish to get it balanced up right! @fracas with all the incredible new assets being built in this phase of the conflict I wouldn't rule out anything! Especially if Neil has his way with it all! -Mike
  7. Lemme see if we can get Neil a bit involved here... -Mike
  8. @Aurikon Going to do all I can for you folks! (Heck I want my Corinth club stuff too, so I am right there with you!) -Mike
  9. @firelord444I don't think they have been hamstrung at all! In fact, I would argue that they are sitting in a better place than most everyone else! Gimp? hardly! You did see that capabilities from the RoE Drones right? The Covenant players are up in arms at how impressive they are! (spoiler alert, the CoA ones are going to get thier errors fixed and will be working better in scope once the corrections are made). Drones are going to be better in most cases than an average human manned plane, but there has to be some limitations to that power! @Elessar Glad you are liking them. The vulnerability stings a bit, but its fragile new tech... they have not come close to mastering their energy powers like the CoA has! Expect more RoE goodness in the near future... This is only the dawn of this amazing new empire! -Mike
  10. My brain!... lol this topic seems to be a visual imprint of how most of my work conversations end up going in public! Lunacy! But since its the weekend and the good times are flowing! Here is a bit of STO spoiler love: The Scandinavian Teutonic Order form an elite brotherhood of warrior knights, dutifully trained in a highly martial tradition. As their role in the already zealous Prussian Empire being that of the Emporer's personal special forces, all Naval Vessels in the STO will have a degree of Sustained Assault. -Mike
  11. @hyde1352 A redesigned "Lexington" would be a spiritual replacement for the ship. Conceptually it would fill the roll of the ship with new tweaks and designs built into its stat sheet and more importantly, will have an updated design to match the improved aesthetics of the fleet! So yes to both! -Mike
  12. @Gen. Eric I think you got checked into the wrong thread... this is America bud! You are looking for the door marked "Madhouse for Crazy-Krauts" -Mike
  13. Wait till you see how those STO guys line up with this list! "Walks away quietly" -Mike
  14. @AurikonLol sub carrier for KoB? They are not evil folks! But I can think of some that are... Yes lots of dreaming going on here! ... BUT Lots of dreams seem to be rooted in sound reality yet though! Keep the mill churning. I am always watching and digesting! -Mike
  15. I'll make mention of it today with the bossman and see what can be worked out with the website and or blog. Lemme sniff around a bit. -Mike
  16. @Maccabeus I exist only to serve! Glad I could help out! @Der Hochmeister if I have it my way, you gents will have it sooner than later. Have a few things that need to be pinned down with a meeting today. Finalizing some more details this week. Really want to get the ORBATS out for the STO and DoC early as all heck. But there is a lot of moving parts in the machine that need to fall in place for my antics to work out properly! -Mike
  17. @Nazduruk_Bugzappa I like to think they have sizable banks for said solar enegery tucked away in those BLOATED hulls! Additional repositories of kinetic build up from engines can be channeled to said cells... as dangerous and vulnerable-inducing as that might be! (Something that the Covenant need not worry about with thier "inferior" energy weapons! Lol ) @RuleBritannia new drones! They have to be thematic for the nation! @Bazlord please don't think for a minute that the drones of the mighty covenant are going to be outclassed! If anything this polished and tuned up RoE ORBAT should be giving you a little hint to some of the changes that are coming to the CoA concepts... as this ORBAT better represents a cohesive and completed concept, where the COA one was a hold over that needed to get out with the huge pile of others! Lol but hardly represents the vision in its entirety for the faction or the others! Its also safe to assume... that the Covenant has spies in legion. Better still, they have a much more erudite team of theorists and innovators, lording over those from all these silly lesser nations! Exciting times! New nation woo! -Mike
  18. @FSAHoops "listens with pen and paper in hand" I love threads like this. They really help us get a strong picture of the desires and thoughts of our players. Strong input and passion build the best thematics! The FSA and all the amazing nations of this game have so much that is going to be opened up and expanded upon. The most excitement I have had in delving into this system has been tooling up concepts as to how to better convey these national identities on the battlefield for everyone to enjoy. -Mike
  19. While I can't make any claims to anyone coming anything close to being as devious and sinister as the League Crimson... A shadowy militant organization, dabbling in mysterious technology and mysticism infused with vile alchemy... all towards the grand design of sowing death?! Seems pretty damn sinister to me! Couple that with a dark cast of characters within the upper ranks leading them and the Wani are really going to tell an incredible story, both in narrative proper and on the tabletop. Really opening up the narrative and expanding the world beyond simple numbers is the true excitement of 2.5. I'll keep saying that you guys haven't seen anything yet... sorry to sound so nauseating! -Mike
  20. Stunning work! Clean and wonderfully cohesive! Honestly there isn't enough compliments... just damned amazing. Well done sir! -Mike
  21. There are many plans for the Sinister Wani. I am just an anxious as the rest of you guys to get to them! Working through my secret schematics... time and patience my only enemies! -Mike
  22. The new ORBATs are being further edited to include pretty boat and ship pictures to make this waaaaaay more user friendly! and also to fix a lot of glaring issues! -Mike
  23. @Grand-Stone I have been summoned by the spheres of debate! Lol anyways! You folks essentially covered a lot of what was discussed here about the Obu. Biggest impact for points is the CR being bumped and the crew consideration (as few as they may be!). Consider being obscured and being fired on by fighters? Edge Japan! And who ever said that incindiary was weaker hasn't seen some of the synergizing bonuses I have been cooking for EotBS for those upcoming public tests we are working towards... well I suppose none of you have seen them! Atleast I hope! ALSO... consider the fact that there might increases to certain elements to go along with our rebalancing work. The above mentioned Zerstorer may end up swinging into 25 points after we give it a re-tooling! Lots of factors went into the Obu, some obvious and some publicly mysterious. But considered always was the great idea of balance, theme and effectiveness! Did that help? Am I still too dizzy to be posting?! -Mike
  24. @Moridin a fair question! I'll ask the web/store people what the plan is for that and the BW Cyclops Assault Cruiser while I'm at it. @Benchpresser always love the speculation! Yes indeed the Dominion of Canada makes ample use of ablative armour! STO make ample use of horrible new gun-tech! Fun stuff. -Mike
  25. There are a lot of models that, due to age have seen a real hit in casting quality for thier molds. Additionally, as expected, some of the oldest models naturally have an aesthetic and designs that, while in keeping with thier Nations elements, are a bit dated and less detailed (obviously!). Combine all that, with the fact that the scale is a bit off on most of them too! Its all a big sign that something has to be done! The process of going through aged models and giving them an update is coming. That will mean that some older models will go out of production and sale via store. I cannot make a comment about when it will be for some, as the store isn't my area of expertise! BUT I can tell you that the idea isn't to murder off anything! But rather evolve it and improve it, both in looks and operational value, but more importantly, from a design and production specifics! See what we did with that new Metzger ausf-B MK2? Looks pretty doesn't it! (The rules are really good too!) Going to keep the momentum going. Have lots to work with. The light cruisers are one of those. I have designs in the tubes for new FSA PE and even a KoB one sitting on my laptop just waiting for the right momment to strike. Hope that helps! -Mike
