FALLOUT: WASTELAND WARFARE - TABLETOP ROLEPLAYING IN THE WASTELAND!

We're proud to announce the first ever officially licensed roleplaying game for the Fallout series. Build your crew from a wide range of factions, allies and iconic characters from the FALLOUT series, or even create your own, and play in apocalyptic roleplaying adventures across the wasteland! This expansion for the miniatures game will be followed by a 2d20 version in 2020!

Pretty big announcement from us folks.

Well isn't that something. Just the other day I was thinking about how much fun a Fallout RPG could be, and here we are.

It'll be fun to see what the Wasteland Warfare book has to offer. Campaign and RPG additions are much appreciated and even if it may not be suitable for solo AI play out of the book, I'm sure with a little tinkering that can be fixed. Considering you as the only only player already take a GM-like role in solo mode, that shouldn't be too far out there.

No worries about the 2D20 version at all. My group is currently playing Star Trek Adventures and it's a fun system. Well, maybe not for our first officer who has recurring issues with exploding replicators, but hey. Fun part is, with Star Trek being all serious like, the Fallout setting has even more room for hilarity like that. I should have never been made GM...

I'm really looking forward to wave 2 - the expanded 'creature' pool is definitely going to help add some variety to the hex-based coop campaign system I've been working on. One question though - the blog post mentions that 'most' of the wave 1 PDFs will remain. Does this mean that for wave 2, the cards will only be available in the standalone packs or will they continue to be released as PDF downloads as well?

Nothing will change with the PDFs. If you need multiples of a card or you need it for battle mode it will remain a free download.

The Narrative cards will remain a paid product, only because we do occasionally need to eat.

I think I actually prefer separate cards. And if it speeds up production, so much the better.

Good to see you looking into weapons packs.

When it says multipacks of Assaultrons and Protectrons, I assume that means a blister for each variety and not both Assaultrons and Protectrons in one box? Because I could see myself buy quite a few more Protectrons than Assaultrons, what with the former having many more uses and potential color schemes and faction affiliation.

You welcomed what, six or seven new guys in that update? Surely those will last you a good while. Unless they're really skinny?

Which reminds me, is there a cannibal upgrade card in the game at the moment? Or such a rule/upgrade planned for the Wasteland Warfare RPG? Kind of relevant, now that I think about it.

Time for another blog post. This one is mostly good news but with one pretty large issue that's going to have a short term knock on effect on some of the minis you have been waiting for.

Raiders reveal...

​As part of wave 2, we have been long teasing the Raiders reveal. You have seen the initial renders but that wasn't the full picture. As part of our ongoing commitment to making each wave the best it can be, we had added six more unique sculpts to ensure anyone buying one of each Raider kit would receive no duplicates.

Adam, our dedicated painter and talented member of the Fallout:Wasteland Warfare Facebook group has put together a stunning set of minis which we were planning on revealing at Adepticon. Unfortunately, due to some interesting grasp of geography by the shippers, our band of Raiders is currently setting up a new base somewhere in South Korea. Yes, you read that right...

This is going to have an impact on the wave 2 release as without the miniatures we can't shoot box art photography. Adam is going to be painting a new set for us and we will be swapping the order of releases as part of wave 2, however those eagerly waiting on Raiders will have to wait just a little longer.

Before he shipped, Adam did take some shots for us to approve, so in lieu of the Adepticon reveal I'm pleased to share these first (and unfortunately likely last) shots of the final Raider sculpts. As you can see we took the opportunity to add in the classic hooded Raider, as well as some nods to the Fallout 4 concept art book with the two new Scavvers (leather clad long range sharpshooters). We also mixed up the male and female options so you can now run both male and female Raiders and Psychos (chem fuelled close combat specialists).

The good news is this wasn't the only reveal for Adepticon... we have something very special that we are announcing the week of the show and your first chance to pick up a model from the project will be then, both at the show or through our webstore for those not attending.

Profiles and Points

In better news the next iteration of the points costs and Battle Model force lists are now ready. They have been uploaded to the downloads page so you can start building your new lists. A few points changed and some new options were added, plus those waiting on the Raiders can start plotting your forces. Raider cards will be along in the near future for those looking to test them out prior to the miniatures arriving.

Barricades and weapon sprues

As we announced last week, a pre-sale of the junk and military barricades and the weapon sprues is coming. They are all cast and packaged and are on route to the warehouse. We are looking to launch the pre-sale next week so keep an eye on the store and social media feeds for more details. Stock will be limited so get in early.

Shows

Chris is on the road, appearing at Gama this week, before making his way over to Chicago in preparation for Adepticon where Lloyd and Jon will be joining him. We will be selling Fallout, Achtung! Cthulhu and a secret promo figure hinted at above so drop by the stand and say hi. Attendees can grab a demo of Fallout and chat with us about what's happening next with Wasteland Warfare, the RPG and more.

Shortly after we are off to Salute in London, again running Fallout demos as well as Achtung! Cthulhu:Combat. This will be the first show for quite a few of our new team so come and meet some of the folks helping us develop ever better games and minis.

Adam is going to be running a new narrative event for us, but nothing competitive yet. We do want to host more gaming at shows, but its logistically challenging being this side of the pond and costs are an issue.

However, if there was a dedicated back of gamers who wanted to put on a tournament at the show, we can certainly look to support them doing so. Many shows allow for fans to have access to tables to run small events so if you (or anyone else) is keen to explore the options there, drop me a line and we can see what we can work out together.

South Korea, eh? Next time you want to misplace some Raiders, I have a better address for you...

Raiders came out nicely (even if I prefer the art direction of Fallout 3). I guess I have plenty to paint yet, so not too fussed about any delay.

Time to wait for that mystery reveal, then.

I like the raiders! I just got in my 7TV Kickstarter, and those raiders should mix in nicely for a huge gang. I can't wait to get the rules.

So, under the new packaging plan, how will we get the AI cards for new releases? Will those be added online, or will they be in the wave card packs with the narrative cards?

They will come with the wave packs.

Wave 1 will see a stand alone pack of AI and stat cards also.

Those Brotherhood pilots seem to be having no joy landing and the Crashed Vertibird scenery set will be "touching down" in the warehouse any minute now. I'll let folks know once it goes live for sale, but it will be available to direct order for your LGS if you prefer to support them next month.

There is going to be a pretty big announcement on the website at 2.30 PM today... that thing we were lined up to reveal at Adepticon... we can finally reveal today. Hopefully its going to have been worth the wait (it is )

EDIT: Reveal is at 2:30, though IGN have the scoop at 2.

Is this announcement Fallout related, or is it the Elder Scrolls game already spilled in another thread?

This is the reveal of Elder Scrolls Call to Arms.

Don't worry Fallout fans, we have wave 2 on route and plenty more to come for you all, including something huge for the end of the year.

Also, please be assured that the development of ES hasn't impacted on Fallout (if anything its helped as it was part of the reason we increased the dev team so dramatically).

The ES rules are being done externally (Mark Latham of White Dwarf/Walking Dead fame), painting is done by a new studio, casting is being done by a different factory to Fallout and so forth.

This will not have any impact on the releases and plans for Fallout at all.

Is the Wasteland Warfare rpg supplement still on track for this summer? Do we have a more firm date than "Summer 2019" yet, even if it's just a "probably <month>"?

Its in layout and we are doing everything we can to have it for sale at GenCon with a retail release shortly after.

The starter box (which will contain the model plus some cards etc) will follow before the end of the year all being well.

I'm very hesitant to give dates until I know its either on the water or in the warehouse so I am cagey.

Given the track record with release dates early in the game's run, I can understand that. I hope you make your targets, though, I find this an exciting prospect!

Has there been any more information on the FO:WW version of the RPG released other than that initial article?

James has written a series of blog posts about it. I’ll see where we are with releasing those.

If you are hitting the UK Games Expo next weekend we will be running demos. Not 100% sure if we will have demos at GenCon or not but I think we are trying to.

At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.
