    Notes from Stuart, part 2

    The whole point will be that the eight factions in Firestorm will have far more reasons to duke it out than to cooperate. Seeds will be sown to address why same faction battles are likely too. Basically, we want your games of Firestorm to always feel like they are part of the story.

    November Spoiler!

    There's more than one Abe miniature...

    Notes from Stuart, part 2

    A couple of things: The Firestorm Universe is not going to be a Cold War. If you have an entire galaxy to wage war across, with vast distances of time and space separating the various combatants you can have multiple belligerents actively battling each other in full-scale war while still having the breathing room to explore, exploit and expand. Let's not get too hung up on notions of 'The Directorate are going to be turned into X or Y.' We haven't announced any factions yet or even if there will be a Directorate at all (just kidding... maybe). Just lots of lovely speculation from the community. I'm certainly in the camp of being excited about the possibilities rather than worried about what might get thrown out with the bath water.

    Thoughts on getting the most out of the Beta

    We'll list changes for each update, absolutely. Logic will usually be in response to Beta feedback, where that's not the case I'll make sure we outline why a change has been made.

    Future FA rules

    As Richard has said, we are still looking at developing the setting. Firestorm Third Edition will be a new game (with rules that are an evolution from the second edition) and new background (that will include many of the existing concepts for factions etc). At this stage, it is not anticipated that it will be a continuation of the second edition in terms of background. That said I'm not involved with the team developing Firestorm, at the moment, so can't say with an absolute authority on what it will or won't be. On the subject of the Directorate, bear in mind that it is a tabletop miniatures game. The miniatures should clearly communicate the archetype and stylings of the faction they represent. The background is there to serve the game, not the other way around, after all. To my mind, if you have a corporate/commercial faction then their vessels should communicate that aspect of them. Large cargo bays, use of mercenaries or something else that makes their background directly inform the miniature design.

    For sale section?

    Can we not have trading on here (albeit by PM). If you want to sell stuff there's ebay to search and various FB sales groups. We'd rather not get involved in private selling.

    Shooting at units, and use of carpathogen

    You can only focus in your activation.

    Shooting at units, and use of carpathogen

    A good deal of your questions would be resolved by remembering the following: It isn't like 40k or similar games where squads all roll dice together. While Units containing multiple models must take the same action, in every other respect you resolve them separately. Target an enemy unit with each separately etc. Roll die for each separately. Hopefully that clears up quite a bit for you.

    Warcradle classic Dystopian age releases wishlist

    These are less 'sets of things being released and more just the output of moulds as we have gone through the range. There is no intentional order or priority, it is simply a case of whatever is next to hand as the teams go through the various crates and pallet of moulds. We may never come across the submerged version or the surface version of some models. If it's got acrylic components, that makes it less likely as well. It's basically one step up from a components service, in that we are releasing entire miniatures. Carriers won't come with tokens, for example, just the actual model.

    Warcradle - Limited Print/manufacture runs?

    No, they will not be at GenCon.

    Will there be alternate versions of the 'Scythe'?

    Constructs aren't dead. They are very much alive. The Enlightened haven't (yet) unlocked the ability to resurrect the dead. At least not satisfactorily. Piloting the Scythe (and the smaller Sickle) puts incredible stresses on the human body. So all Enlightened pilots are augmented in some fashion so as to make better pilots. Of course, there will be some that are more passable for an unaltered human than others. Think of constructs more like cyborgs - heavily augmented humans. They are all either volunteers or conscripted into the process (depending on the Enlightened Peer orchestrating the whole thing).

    Model availability

    The releases each month will be a selection of models from across our archives and will include miniatures from Dystopian Wars, Firestorm Armada and Planetfall. Many of the moulds as we test them are proving to be less than ideal in terms of the quality of what is produced, so many of the old models will never return. As we have miniatures of a reasonable quality available each month we will list them for purchase.

    Model availability

    We will be releasing the first batch of Warcradle Classics towards the end of this month. There will not be specific individual profiles for the old models in the third edition, however, we will be releasing a sheet for each faction to cover every miniature released so far and what it counts as in the third edition so you can still use them.
