All the "new" STLs are designed to fit a minimum print bed of 120x60x150mm.

Now that I am in charge of the STL side of things (as well as everything else) we are not doing the throw an STL up and hope for the best attitude.

All new STLs are now cut to the dims above, set up by a third party (who also tends to print so we know they work) and I also now have joined the ranks of 3D printing so am also testing my end so I know things are good to go.

This week I have been going back through the original files to see what is where (and what isn't in some cases...) and am slowly clawing them up to meet my expectations with the new sets.

So, in time "everything" will be cut to fit the above, properly and fully supported and will hopefully be a much better experience for everyone.

We didn't get it right first time, but as I say, I am now in charge of this and its pretty well known internally that I am possibly one of our biggest critics so I aim to do better.

Plenty of exciting new kits to come for FWW and TES:CTA in time. I sent six new sets (that will also be bundled together) off today, plus the missing parts for the UFO and the tank, and the missing car, so a good mix of old and new.


I find everything in this post exciting! Thank you for the information.

How will Modiphius let customers know when older sets are re-cut for smaller print beds? I assume the webstore, WargameVault, and MMF downloads will be updated as appropriate?

Oh, and while I have your "ear", has there been any consideration of offering STLs for miniatures as well as terrain? I know it's a thorny issue still for companies that also sell miniatures in the retail market, but...as I get more used to printing miniatures at home, I find I'm also less likely to buy physical miniatures. The sheer convenience of printing numbers and parts as needed is nothing to sneeze at! If nothing else, maybe offering some conversion bits as STLs? Weapon and arm swaps, maybe some alt heads, so that folks who buy lots of a faction can keep the basic guys from being duplicates of the same 2-3 sculpts?


Yup, as we update, the various stores (keeping three stores up to date and aligned is so much fun...) will be refreshed. I'll have to see if there is an auto email feature we can use to tell people who own the sets, but otherwise keep an eye on the usual channels.

The terrain STLs are the experimental phase of if we are going to expand into minis etc. I'm still not convinced and there are legal and financial considerations that mean it's not the slam dunk that some folks think, so I'm in no rush, but that doesn't mean I don't have ideas for supporting products (weapon packs, new base sets etc) that might struggle to be profitable if we did them in resin.

Ultimately it comes down to how much time I can get with the sculptors (I have to let Gavin do some TES models every so often ) and what the viability of any given product is, but I guess in some respects this is almost our skunkworks now so we can test out ideas in a controlled manner and some of that will then feed back into future planning.

I remember there being a kit of 6 feral ghouls, is this gone now? I see a kit with 3 ghouls and some glowing bois, Ill probably snag a few, but I wanted a proper horde of normie ghouls. Just checking if anyone knows where to snag those 6 ghoul kits.

That was a preorder product that was just two blisters of the ferals and is now OOP.

I’ve got plans for a new set of feral ghouls but it won’t be for a while yet sadly.

The set with the two glowing ghouls includes the same three sculpts as the original set.

I picked up the crashed UFO and crashed vertibird STLs in the MyMiniFactory Black Friday sale.

It looks like the crashed UFO has been cut up to fit smaller resin print beds (like my Elegoo Mars 1 Pro), but the crashed veritbird has not. (Or at least, not yet?)

Correct, I'm going through the old sets alongside the new to bring "phase 1" up to meet my standards for "phase 2".
If you bought the files you will get the updated versions.

Its going to take a little time as we are using a 3rd party for the supporting, but I'll keep people in the loop as we update them.

While none of this is in the next wave Jon dropped a surprise on Reddit over the weekend.


After that, we have announced the theme of wave 8 as being Capitol. There are some key next steps as part of that block, including (all being well) our first plastic kits.



Plastics are where I want to move, but we need sales in the 10,000 plus to make that viable and we haven’t got that big an audience yet, so have to manage that carefully.

We have taken on Colin who has been sculpting plastics for GW for years, so have in house talent now. That’s going to make a big difference to our plastic output for sure as he has all the skills needed. His first kit is almost ready for tooling.


Wave 7 (after common wealth) is a smaller wave probably to just keep steady releases going next year so Wave 8, and some plastics hopefully, should be 2023 if all goes well based off of some of the timeline info we've gotten.

I really hope older factions are given updated starter kits at some point, while retaining the excellent originals. Factions like raiders or institute could really use some extra sculpts with some modularity. Hopefully plastic sees the greenlight.

Not that these factions are actually "old"

Plastic kits? Shiny!

Yeah, I don't know if specialized factions can really hope for additional kits if the economics of plastic production don't (yet) work out for Modiphius. I could see something like generic settlers/wastelanders, mercenaries with US military gear, Ferals - things you may need in larger numbers and/or that can be used in multiple factions - in the beginning.

While it would be cool to get plastic updates for older factions, I can say for myself that it's not an actual concern. I look at Star Wars Legion and think that now the game has entered the shiny new plastic age, a redo of Imperials and Rebels would be amazing if only to get rid of the dreadful material the old models are cast in. Wasteland Warfare has lovely sculpts in one of, if not the best resin I ever handled. I think plastic, while desirable as a material for sure, would be a sidegrade more than anything.

Wave 8 is Capitol? As in, downtown DC? Or just misspelled capital as in DC/Capital Wasteland? Not that it's much of a difference and I definitely like the sound of it, but the wider wasteland has a few extra options that would be cool to see. I might finally get the chance to sow terror in the hearts of my enemies with Little Lamplighters.

Just to manage expectations and set a few things out.

I don't want to play our hand early as that leads to issues... looking at you The Master and Liberty Prime...

So, a lot of what I am hinting at here won't be around till 2023 at the earliest, hence me being vague.

Wave 8 is indeed Capitol as in downtown DC. Its a full wave, combining the Fallout 3 models revealed way back when plus some new sets that round out two of the existing factions a little more.

Beyond that, I don't want to say too much, but wave 6-7 are the end of the next phase of the game and then 8 becomes the start of a shift.

I'll detail more as we get closer to it, but now that things are fully in my hands, I'm taking a different approach to how we expand the game.

Nothing too drastic, don't worry, it will still be Fallout Wasteland Warfare, but tightening up the thematic blocks (it took till wave 8 for me to clear all the "random" minis that were sculpted that I inherited and have been putting some semblance of order into).

On the plastic front, long (long!) term I'd like a core set for every faction in plastic. The next two blocks of resin include models with swappable arms and even heads in some cases which were my first stab at modularity before I knew I was getting Colin, but now we have him that makes life even easier.

The first two plastics are Power Armour sets as its an obvious and likely popular choice, but after that the plan is sensible core sets akin to the Necromunda plastics (so fixed bodies but swappable arms and where possible heads) is what I want us to focus on.

This will be accompanied by my top secret project that I think folks are really going to get a kick out of, but given that I am only having the first meeting with the design team on that this week, its waaaay to early to tell you any more than that.

Cool, thanks for the info.

I think I remember Reilly as one of those early previews, so I take it we can expect Reilly's Rangers.

The Capitol is fought over by Super Mutants and Talon Company. Not sure how this is going the be handled, considering we have Super Mutants already and I think we'll get Gunners? I figure Fallout 3 themed models would just be alternate sculpts, so not sure if that's going to happen?

Down the Mall there's Underworld and a Brotherhood outpost. Brotherhood, same thing as above. Ghoul settlers could be cool though.

Down in the tunnels there are Raiders and Ferals. We have no shortage of Raider models and rules, especially if we also get Nuka World gangs. Ferals I could see get an expansion with the various levels of Feral Ghoul to get a bit more variety.

It's kind of funny for me of all people to say this since I love Fallout 3's aesthetic and would like nothing more than models sculpted to match that aesthetic, but since I'm out of the loop a bit, I really have no idea what we can expect for the Capitol wave. I think I remember way back when it was said that alternate sculpts are not something Modiphius considered (at all? At the time?). But, well, guess there's plenty of time to find out.

Power armour for the first plastics makes sense; it's the default wishlist item I see whenever plastic kits are brought up and they're obviously useful across many factions.

'Jon's Top-Secret Project Pitch Meeting' = Gunners riding to battle on the backs of other Gunners.

Ya, they've talked about alt sculpts being a hard thing to do just from a business standpoint. if the units are the exact same why have two sets? That being said units from other games are possible if they add something to the game.

I think there's several types of Super Mutants that could be added from FO3 that add to the game. We don't have a minigun, missal launcher, or hunting rifle. I'd expect at least the minigun as it's so prevalent.

There's some BoS stuff and GNR units. We've seen Sarah Lyons in the same preview with Reilly and you do meet her at GNR. So a Lyon's Pride BoS box or more as there's a lot of named characters in the team.

Talon company is also possible as Jon has mentioned that some smaller factions can just be more encounters then actual full fledged units. Since the core game also lets you, more or less, add any unit to any faction then having a set of units that don't have their own faction doesn't really matter (And maybe with the Gunners we'll see a generic Merc faction that they'd fit into).

There's also Rivet City, Reilly, Underworld. You could get a James figure (maybe as pre-order bonus). Abolitionists are also a faction that are involved in DC.

Other things we could get is more Ferals and there are also the Chinese officer Ghouls. Different Mirelurks and you could make an argument for more Enclave as they are in at Jefferson Memorial.

I'd expect a Lone Wanderer figure too as there's actually an official design for the Male via the action figure.

There is the mirelurk king to go as well, since the fog crawler stole its place in the mirelurk wave.

Capitol wasteland seems like a place for expanding the brotherhood and enclave, and ghouls (especially non ferals) like the reavers.

Vault dwellers would also make a lot of sense, with the overseer and amata, ,butch and the tunnel snakes, and the various vault security folks. Maybe a sweet roll thrown in.

James as an exclusive could work, or he could be part of a project purity pack with Madison li (who could also be brotherhood or institute faction aligned) Three Dog would be an awesome exclusive.

Yeah, Mirelurk King would be good to have. I mean, not really. I hate those things. But it's an obvious gap.

It's probably just my own idea of what the downtown area is, but I wouldn't count Rivet City and Jefferson Memorial as part of it. Too remote. Arlington is on the other side of the Potomac, so Chinese Remnant wasn't on my list either. Basically that's why I asked about the wider Capital Wasteland.

I think I'd rather have Three Dog as the exclusive wave model. He's without faction affiliation even if he has his Brotherhood security detail. James would be cool, but as you say, could easily fit into a Rivet City/Project Purity expansion, so I'd rather seem him there.

We actually aw Sarah Lyons? Huh, what do you know. I guess it's been a while since those early previews.

I'd guess the Mirelurk Kings would look like their later iteration rather than the more humanoid FO3 version.

Would love me some Talon Company; if they're not likely then I might proxy in Gunners when they come and just paint them up in the black armour. A thousand times yes to Three Dog as well.

Probably.

Not sure that I have a preference here. The basic Lurks went from humanoids to crabs from Fallout 3 to Fallout 4. That was a pretty significant change. I thought the Mirelurk Kings from both games were reasonably close to each other as takes on the Creature from the Black Lagoon. I mean, obviously Bethesda visibly moved away from the dude in rubber suit look, but not by that much.

But since we have the more naturalistic Fallout 4 Lurks as models, I figure it would be for the best to get the missing one in matching style.

Jefferson Memorial is 100% downtown DC. It's right off the Mall in the real world. It's closer to the Washington Monument then the Capitol building is and about the same distance as the White House from the Monument. The fallout wiki also places both the Memorial and Rivet City in DC.

You know, I think Sarah Lyons was the first brief I ever did for a mini. That or Rosa Meitner.

Funny that neither have released yet.

The Tidal basin and snarl of roads tends to throw people off. Even when you're there, it looks separate and hard to get to.

The flow of the sidewalks and paths tends to lead people to walk in pretty much any other direction.
