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.
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.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
