  1. I asked my question above on a ticket with wayland - to which the answer was: 'those models were out of stock but available to order'. (Which, you'll note, doesn't answer the question at all) As with many of you above, a wait in itself isn't an issue for me, but the lack of clear communication (after taking our money no less) really is.
  2. @Warcradle Sam as the most recent member of the warcradle crew to respond on this thread - could you direct the question on my post above at the appropriate people?
  3. Could someone from warcradle confirm are the ships marked as 'awaiting restock' on wayland games' website actually just being cast on demand? or are we genuinely waiting on a restock? I'd just like to know whether it makes more sense to wait until the stock levels are updated on the website before blowing some payday moulah!
  4. I pre-ordered some of the 'available for pre-order models' and have received 90% of them - resin and metals all in great nick. However, a couple of others I was asked to raise a ticket for and then sked if I would prefer a refund due to the delay. No biggie, but none of the ships I pre-ordered have dropped into 'in stock' yet. I got a Hawker Carrier and Escorts, I also ordered a directorate Battlecruiser, a terran torpedo cruiser, and a couple of RSN heavy Cruisers and a few other bits which all came fine, but didn't get hawker frigates If someone from warcradle could confirm are the 'awaiting restock' ships actually just being cast on demand? or are we genuinely waiting on a restock? I'd just like to know whether it makes more sense to wait until the stock levels are updated on the website before blowing some payday moulah!
  5. Yeah, Different scales for different classes (fighters and the like aside per the standard for genre) would be a hard no for me. I want my big ships BIG, and to look it! At the current scale - A frigate is approximately the length of a WWII Battleship - (I worked it out ages ago) which is a great little metric. I think that depends on the price of the IP... They may well have bought it simply to make their own game without the risk of someone else revitalising FA in competition (Which would be a perfectly legitimate thing to do, even though I would be saddened) A couple of decades following battletech has taught me all about IP wrangling. I'll be interested in the Beta - Like you @Small Mek I am hoping to be pleasantly surprised.
  6. Sooo. Where can we catch this Q&A due today?
  7. There's a new wave of ships available - but they seem to all be awaiting re-stock. I assume that's just a placeholder as there are no images either.
  8. [Eats Hat] - There are some Firestorm Warcradle classics available on wayland games' website! Have at them!! That didn't sound excited enough ---- Woooooooooooooooooooooohoooooooooooooooooooooo!
  9. That's great news, @Warcradle Richard Is there any chance of any Firestorm classics in there this time? or if not, any news on when these may be available?
  10. Yeah, I can see Vector movement being great for hyper realistic space battles - but I'd rather stick to a simple format for fleet based games - I like Full-thrust's turn system - but it's a bit more involved than Firestorm 2.0 - And there seems no appetite for more complexity.
  11. I think full thrust does it in a similar, but marginally less complex way.
  12. It seems like the classics releases are being used to hype the beta etc for Dystopian. I would expect the same for firestorm. Maybe when Dystopian is done and FSA is close to a Beta they'll put some old ships out. The complete lack of a timescale other than 'soon' (TM) has made me spend the money I was hoarding for FSA on Necromunda the latest releases for which are - somewhat ironically - also due out 'soon'.
  13. Yeah, I'm trying really hard not to sound like a furious old Grognard, But I'm 100% sure I'm failing, haha. I'm not a Directorate player though (My Terquai's Favourite pastime is vapourising Directorate!) - Just someone who read the Fleet Manuals a while ago. and is (Maybe a bit too) passionate about the game. This is true. And if WC were to say that, then that puts the matter to bed - doesn't it. Their Ambiguous messages on here are a bit counterproductive sometimes. (Especially when there's utter nutjars on here ready to pounce on any tidbit and proclaim them as the footseps of doom - ahem... ) As I've said before, I don't mind changes to the alliances - though I think they are unnecessary I can see the value, and that other people seem to be won over! I don't mind changes to the rule system - or the ship designs being thrown out and started from scratch... What I really object to are arbitrary changes - and changes that either just don't make sense or feel like dumbing things down. Ultimately - WC could just as easily have bought FA just so that they could make a SF warship game of their own without a rebooted FA as a potential competitor. If that was the case - that would be their right too. As Warcradle Richard said: 'that doesn't mean we have to respect it, keep it or not rewrite it' I hope TPTB don't take too much offense at my occasional venting. - For the most part it is intended to be constructive, even if it sometimes comes off a little 'sharp'.
