I don't think it would be very difficult to do as all the mechanics are all there the only real part is creating the campaign that turns the NPC and dialog side of things into a GM-less system or setting up a choose your own adventure flow.

I haven't, I didn't even know these existed or where they are. To be honest the Modiphius website is a real pain to navigate and find stuff on, like how your development blogs are only available via the store and not on the main page. I'm quite happy to hear that as I was reading things yesterday I was thinking "there's no way no one at Modiphius didn't think of this".

Also I saw your post from earlier in the month on r/terrainbuilders and posted it in a fallout terrain group on facebook. Not sure if you're still looking for people but several were interested.

Like Monkeysloth said, it's like right at the edge of catapulting this game to a whole new level.

Going to be keeping an eye on things! Good thing I've got all the printed card materials so far too...

Would be amazing for Elderscrolls too as I think the solo/co-op stuff is a bit cleaner there. Plus the HIPs means more customizable custom characters (which I realize fallout has a goal of at some point).

This is pretty exciting and made me glad I invested in both games (assuming they have similar plans for Call to Arms).

I was under the impression that Elder Scrolls releases would be resin going forward. Are more HIPS models coming (for either game)?

I'd really like to see something more like what Frostgrave did with tons of weapons and customization options (their build-a-wizard sprues are amazing). I'd love to be able to design my own raiders, power armor, or vault dweller...

ya.


Barring absolute tragedy, yes sprue HIPS multipart (but not multi pose ) plastic kits are part of the core Elder Scrolls experience.

All being well, we will see similar in Fallout in time.

Its been a long slog (I've had a plastic power armour suit for some time now...) but Elder Scrolls looks like its going to be the first chance to explore the medium for us as a company.


https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/60/775687.page#10626395

There are also some comments that future kits will, hopefully, have alternative weapon options. I don't know if every human sized figure will be hips but they will be more kits.

One thing I've noticed is that, for Battle Mode list building, Ronnie Shaw's options are a copy/paste of Preston's. Is this the correct gear list she has access to, as she has heavy weapon skills, but no access to any?

Steve is still furloughed and customer services have a lot to dig through, so things are taking longer than planned. I'll jump in and have a look and pass to the right people.

I'll chase that up and find out what's going on. I feel like I've seen this question before, but it does seem off if she's missing heavy weapons options.

Battle Mode is currently slightly languishing (we've focussed heavily on solo play and the upcoming narrative expansions through lockdown) but it should get its time in the sun eventually.

My whole company changed it's focus during the pandemic, it's a pretty decent sized home security company, as they just don't see things shifting in that space back to what it was before. Probably a good investment to focus on solo for this year as it's a really unique aspect of your games as you're AI is more thorough then others I've seen. Unlike my job yours will go back to normal but I don't see tournaments coming back till next summer probably.

It's was in a private group for someone that designs fallout inspired STLs. I figured you posted in Terrain Tutors and Lukes APS facebook groups (as they're the largest on FB), which I'm in but don't follow every post, so I didn't put it there.

Sorry to hear that, its going to be weird for us all for a good while. Totally agree, large scale comp gaming is going to be a lesser priority for us all for a while. Thanks for the thoughts on AI. It's been a learning curve for me, having never been into solo/co-op wargaming, but it's certainly a direction the company is leaning into.

Listened to an interview with Chris.
https://soundcloud.com/whatsabattlepodcastnetwork/the-cast-dice-podcast-episode-96-fallout-skyrim-and-solo-gaming-with-chris-from-modiphius

They're adding a random vault generator for running missions.

They're also adding an "Into the wasteland" mode where areas are randomly generated with random encounters and different NPC groups. Chris described it as a "square crawl" as you move along a grid and each one is a map. They're also adding new AI behaviors so it's like you just wandered into something in one of the videogame.

Additional settlement builder options (probably similar to the ElderScrolls one)

Sounds like there will be at least one STL unit file being sold (Christ didn't say for which game but I wouldn't be surprised for fallout as it's got the most 3dprinting support).

FWW is on Tabletop simulator now and if the demo does well they're looking at moving the full game to it.

I'm really interested in the "Into the Wasteland" I think that will tie into the RPG book really well and probably would be really useful for the 2d20 game when it comes out.

Mirelurks are shipping and mine should arrive today but DHL usually comes pretty late in the day for me so we'll see.

Enclave stuff is now a November release (huge delay) but it looks like part of this is related to them switching printers.

They're also released the first part of the wave 4 cards. Here's a like to unit cards.

https://www.modiphius.com/uploads/1/4/0/6/14062642/unit_cards_v4_001w.pdf

The one everyone is talking about is Frank Horrigan as you have to kill him 3 times and his stats change as you "kill him" so it reflects a boss fight in a videogame which is cool. Would like to see that with more enemies. They might do this with the Deathclaw Matriarch in the second half of wave four as they've given that list but not what the cards are and there's a 1 and 2 for her.

The second half of wave 4 is a creature customizer card set that's in the similar vein as the custom robot card set.

Frank is indeed the first of several legendary boss type cards in the block. The Matriarch is another.

Think of Frank as a preview, then I want to say we have five more (plans may have altered) in the "Into the Wasteland" set.

I like the Legendary Boss concept and the implementation seams to be pretty good (though people will need to play with them to see). Reminds me of Heroclixs and what I really liked about that game -- that as a unit took damage it's stats changed and sometimes was useful all down the dial but how it was useful could completely change. It's also nice with the different cards reflecting the different states as you can choose what difficulty you want and just set out the appropriate card and be good to go.

So wave 5 is named the same as the grid crawl game mode (assuming the name stays for both) which would lead one to believe their both coming out around the same time. I'm really curious as to what that mode turns out to be as it has a lot of potential but could also be a bookkeeping/setup nightmare.

Normally if I see a game where they're releasing so many different ways to play I'd be really concerned the company was just throwing anything against the wall to see what sticks but the way the rules for FWW and ES:CTA are written with the scenarios all in a separate book (which includes model setup, deployment and so on) just swapping out that book for another with different scenarios and setup/deployment rules works as you don't have to override anything in the core rules really for these different modes.

Also, and this might be something you can't really address, I've noticed the Starter box for FWW really isn't available anywhere online in the US but Amazon and most online stores have been sold out for quite some time (maybe even before 2020 as I only started following the game earlier this year). I get the pandemic causes production issues and it's PVC which takes into account manufacturing in China and shipping from there but are those being reprinted or is there a different box coming to replace them? I know with ES you said that Modiphius was looking at replacing the core, paper only box, every few years to reflect where the game is. Makes me wonder if you're planning a paper only box for FWW as all the models in the core set are in other boxes (except the gray).

Hey folks.

With the next few waves wrapped up and waiting for big reveals/release, we wanted to take some time to reach out to players, lapsed players and anyone who hasn't yet tried out Fallout: Wasteland Warfare with a survey.

Anyone who completes the survey is in for a chance to win $100 to spend in our webstore.

More than anything though it helps us continue to develop the line in the best possible way. Nothing like a bit of market research hey?

Please do fill it out if you have the time.

Cheers.

Fallout Friday has one again arrived and the Enclave are here to take back control of the Wasteland.

This faction is based around several suits of power armour and they interact with each other in interesting new ways.

Plus there is Frank. Don't need to say any more than that.

Launch wave here: https://www.modiphius.net/collections/fallout-wasteland-warfare/fallout-faction_enclave?page=1
Or the bundle (with bonus Lorenzo Cabot promo figure) here: https://www.modiphius.net/collections/fallout-wasteland-warfare/products/fallout-wasteland-warfare-enclave-wave-faction-bundle

Or at your local gaming store.

Note - this is a pre-order and the products will ship in early November. This is due to the cards not yet arriving in stock (annoyingly...)

Enjoy.

You could really build a movie trillogy from your card experiences:

A new Card
Manufacturing Strikes Back
Return of the Card Packs

Anyway. And info on what's up with the Behemoth and general retail release? I ordered one probably 6 months ago and I know COVID really messed up plans but I'm wondering if it's still planned to release any time soon or if I should just cancel the local order?

If I never see a card pack again... But then we do so love them.

Behemoth is now available to stores and we do keep re-ordering. We have 226 in stock right now, so I'd advise you ask your store to poke our sales team and find out what's up.

Some various news.

First off Microsoft bought Zenimax and thus owns Bethesda now. Doubt this will change anything for Modiphius until the next contract extension comes up but who knows. I doubt Microsoft would really do anything to disrupt things at all.

Secondly the first part of the solo RPG came out a few weeks ago and I've been seeing about playing it before posting but just haven't had time.
https://www.modiphius.net/blogs/news/the-unexpected-shepherd-solo-roleplaying-in-the-wasteland-introduction
https://www.modiphius.net/products/fallout-wasteland-warfare-rpg-the-unexpected-shepherd

It's a lot more choose your own adventure then wargame, One scenario is included, so whether or not this is of interest to you really determines what you enjoy. It's 36 pages with maybe 26 of those being the RPG part. It's $5 which is more then I was hoping for that page count but at the same time there's a lot of various writing for the branching paths so Modiphius is in a hard spot as there's a lot of work here but the price I think will really exclude long term support for this type of game play. This is part 1 of three so $15 (most likely) for the whole thing. I'll reserve judgment on the price after all three are out and I can see the total amount of replayability but right now it doesn't look like it really is going to branch much -- just small little things that all end up in the same place at the end of each part. I'm much more willing to pay $20 for 6-8 scenarios (as opposed to $15 for 3-4) and maybe 90 or so min of RPG game play if you could play though it a few times and it feels interesting still after the 1st. I think it would have been better to do all three in one PDF and had several scenarios that were completely skippable at that higher price. Hopefully this set does well enough that Modiphius can continue to play around with the format.

That being said there are some cool mechanics around tracking food/water as well as time of day that causes some shift in story which is neat and really fits the setting. It also adds some consequences to choices you use which is a cleaver way to mix up the formula.

Next is the phone app is out of Beta: https://www.modiphius.net/blogs/news/fallout-wasteland-warfare-now-on-your-phone
I found it pretty well done but to pay the dev you have to buy the card packs. Understandable. But since I like owning everything physically incase the app goes away years from now (very likely considering it probably can't stay active if Modiphius ends the license) I'll have to see how much I end up playing as my group still prefers ES atm.

Last is the announcement for the next wave-- Spring of 2021.
https://www.modiphius.net/blogs/news/ncr-casers-legion-lead-2020-expansions-for-fallout-wasteland-warfare

There will be a new box set that looks like the Elders Scroll one: Rules, cards and so on. No word if it contains tokens at all. So the base starter might still be needed which is getting harder to find in the US. Pretty much only Amazon has it as far as I've seen.

New factions are NCR and Caesar’s Legion (as expected).

We also have a preview of Ceaser's Legion now (from Facebook):
