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: Sounds like a lot of fun. Did you get any photos?

okumarts: Fewer casualties than expected. Mostly from just bad rolls by me. Like, really bad rolls.

okumarts: The Gauntlet was super fun. We played two consecutive nights (Sunday and Monday)

wyvern: okumarts - How did the SD Gauntlet go? And more importantly, how many characters did you lose playing it ?!

okumarts: I'm playing a game tonight. The Cursed Barrow of the Superb Owl: a ShadowDark Gauntlet.

Vermin King: Who all had game night last night?
Feb 10, 2024 5:49:22 GMT -9
Vermin King: A mixture of both is probably appropriate

gothique: In my Mother's case, I arranged the funeral and house clearance (a lot of which I did myself). The bank insisted that my brother dealt with finances and took over as executor. I am still not sure whether to feel relieved at that, or insulted.

Vermin King: He eventually showed up and I sat out on the porch for 20 minutes allowing him lap time. It was a relief to see him again

Vermin King: Well after spending my day dealing with more of Mom's estate, I got home to find Rat the Feral Tom not around. I didn't see him when I was home Friday night or before I left Saturday morning.

Vermin King: Thanks. It's kinda strange that there is so much work involved. A lot more than when I worked in estate planning and finance over 20 years ago

gothique: I have been in your situation and have only recently started my current build. One day you will feel motivated to work on something. Nobody here is forcing your hand, me included.

Vermin King: Now that Mom's death certificates are in, I am not sure when I will have time to build. I was working at TOD's and Survivor Claim forms until 20 minutes before bed last night. This is a lot of work
Feb 3, 2024 5:47:29 GMT -9
gothique: I am sure of it

Vermin King: And so many times, change has negativity associated with it. I keep plugging along hoping the Phoenix will rise again

okumarts: I've been missing posters like Wacky Anne, Dryw the Harper, and of course, Shep. Feeling out of sorts these days. Not all bad, just acutely aware of change.
