It's ready! Now I'm going to finish up the 3D models of the Tigress and test out a couple of new variants I've been thinking about. I planned to release the Tigress expansion with the starter set, but I just couldn't wait.
Funny enough, this is my 101st product release. It definitely feels like a milestone.
Well I've got one fellow on BoardGameGeek who's interested in reviewing the game. I'm nervous that I've overlooked something, or that folks just won't get the setting. It's hard to know if everything will gel in the right way for other people.
Even if there's something wrong, leading game companies release games and then release pages of errata shortly after. I don't expect there to be a lot of errors in my rulebook, but I shouldn't beat myself up if somebody finds a flaw. Updating a PDF is easy. I probably don't have anything to worry about.
Friday's probably a safe bet for the first vehicle pack. I'm aiming for Thursday. I don't think I'll be finished with it sooner that that, because I want to playtest the new Tigress variants that'll be going into it.
The Tigress expansion will include 2D and 3D versions of all the jets in the starter pack, at least 2 variants with new weapon and equipment options. It'll also include two all-new color schemes (one for the State, and one for the Rebels) and maybe a couple of fun ones if I get inspired. I'd really like to see some stripes on a Tigress...
I'm also planning to release unpainted versions so you can color your own.
Having a nice big think about the first supplement for the game.
For the win-win-win scenario, I think I'll start with a free supplement that contains 3D models of all the jets in the Air War Starter Set. If you like the game and want to add 3D models, you can get them at no additional charge. And it's a cool thing for people who just want some free models. I'll be sure to include a teaser for the game, so the free models act as free advertising.
The second supplement will go ahead as planned. It'll cost a couple of bucks, and it'll include all-new skins for the Tigress, and a couple of variants to give you new equipment options. The jets will be offered as both 2D game pieces and 3D models. So you can use it as a gaming product, or a gaming product with 3D models, or just 3D models. Should be something for just about anyone.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
