Sorry for the quiet spell, guys.

It's a poor excuse but I've been a little busy, so struggled to stay on top of things.

First thing I want to cover is the death of our friend and colleague, Wayne England. I think John summarised this the best in his update.

Image

Many of you will already know of the passing of Wayne England yesterday. It came as a terrible shock to all of us and, even now as I write this, it’s still hard to imagine.

Since Wayne was a partner in this project, as well as the lead artist and concept designer, I think it appropriate to say a few words.

I have had the good fortune to work with Wayne over the last couple of decades, we was a genuine guy, who loved what he did. He didn’t suffer fools gladly and was never afflicted with an artist’s pretensions, he was down to earth, keen to see that his clients got what they wanted and above all professional. He was a dream to work with, with an easy, relaxed and engaging manner.

We both worked together on developing the look of Age of Tyrants over the past 5 years, he was instrumental, prolific and inspired. Deep down he was always a Junker, those B&W concepts he did are SO Wayne, he needed absolutely no direction, they were already in him.

And he was my friend.

No words can console the loss of a loved one and our thoughts are with Victoria and his family, all that I can say at this time is that he was admired, respected and loved by all of us.

I’ll leave you with one of the last emails I got from Wayne, just after our project was funded.

“We Are The Champions..WAAOOOOOOT”


Something Wayne wanted us to do, before the project started, is share his fantastic artwork with the world. That's why our Early Bird Pledges generally contain original pieces of artwork. We would really like to honour him, by seeing all of these snapped up by the community. Do check out the project and see if you can grab one of his original art pieces for this project.

From my own heart of hearts, I am gutted. The guy was a genius and an absolute gent. He was utterly awesome and a gentle person. He cared deeply about those around him. I miss him so much.

We've also had some gameplay videos appear in the community...

Oh and Mark Laiman has done an awesome time lapse of sculpting the new Junkers Vulcan Bomber...

We've also added a whole boatload of scenery from Brigade Models!

Okie dokie, more news from the front.

We reached the character limit on Kickstarter, so John's had a play with it and made it all a lot simpler for you guys.

We're proud to introduce our 2 player starter sets!

Image

Image

We are also offering all our models as single bases for those of you that are more interested in painting and collecting than gaming.

Image

We've also unlocked the template set too.

So then some advice please, i've been following this funder and have been considering putting a pledge in. Nothing huge just to give some support and acquire some of the infantry which I hope to use as proxies for my various epic projects.

Not really looking to get into the game as such but i'm always interested in new rules sets and useful alternative models so i'm looking at getting the book and some figures.

So what's best for me, pledge for the two player starter set and then add funds to buy some of the various single stands so I can get hold of as many different infantry figs and maybe robot types things as possible or is there a better option for me.

Any advice appreciated cheers.

Oh and retail will you be selling and supporting the game from an online store in the future. Also trade sales will you be putting your products into other gaming outlets?

A level 2 pledge comes with a free printed rule book, you can then select £48 worth of product, each 4 platoons will give you a free captain. So you could grab 16 infantry stands of your choice with a level 2 pledge. Saurian Riders just got unlocked and would make great rough riders, they come in at 6 models per stand and £3 per stand. With rough riders being 32 stands, 64 models (2nd edition), £33 for rough rider company riding cool dinosaurs.

Actually you can get the book seperate now as most things can be bought individually.

Yes dakka, you could just put a £1 pledge on and add the value of the products you want to buy, if for example you want a rule book and 10 saurian stands just make you pledged amount £42.
