Hi! I'm Harry, formerly "Coyotepunc" here on the forum. I am a hobby addict; I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Manchukuo.)
And, finally, I can't myself fully believe that, but, we are about to release. In the first half of September wait the starter set on Wargame Vault. There's gonna be two squads of infantry 12 men and 2 heavy weapons teams each; two vehicles (kind of battle jeeps); lore for them; the world map with some lore for it. If it goes well, we plan to release 1-2 new sets (a squad of infantry, or a vehicle with some support materials) monthly.

This project looks really interesting. I think the idea to do a rule-agnostic release is really smart. There are enough rulesets available and in this ways the gamer can choose the appropriate level to suit his of her tastes (skirmish, platoon, etc.) Not putting any efforts in rule development and translation frees the authors up to concentrate on developing the models and the setting. I like the fact that a (seemingly interesting) setting is included in the release, this will allow the release to stand out from other releases. I am very eager to see the first release.

We, actually, have developed the rules to play these figures. It's a variation of GZG's Stargrant ruleset changed and adapted for the setting and gameplay. But first images and setting appeared, then it developed into something we wanted to play at, and only after that I translated Stargrant into Russian. Only at a very final stage rules influenced lore and models. You will, probably, notice that in the sets dedicated to psionic fighters, and in the airplanes models. But both of us kept in mind that the figurines and models should be suitible for any system, and the background should also be a world description, not a rulebook novellization. The lore can be described as a "post-apocalyptic western". Most of all it was inspired by Russian SciFi novel "The Inhabitant Island" by Strugatsky bros., but the setting is also close to that from The Postman by D.Brin, or No Truce with Kings by Paul Anderson
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.
