shame, I have only ever watched old warzone being played and it seemed complex but fun. I bought ultimate warzone to paw through the rule book back in the day. The story and art style always seemed interesting to me. Even the new stuff I bought some inquistors to play with and the models were very well done and didn't have any mold lines. I may pick some up just to collect and use in other games.

It seems that prodos just can't deal with licenses. I don't want to totally discount that they lost the license especially after things like netrunner being lost by FFG =/

If they're already in a position to announce this, it sound less like Prodos abandoning Warzone, than Cabinet taking it away from them as soon as the licence expired

either because Prodos was doing well enough with the licence in terms of reputation, sales or both

or because they'd already had somebody else unofficially offer more


The last Warzone release was, what? 8 months ago? The game certainly felt like it was abandoned.

The one two punch of announcing the death of Warzone AND the birth of another product line feels like it was Prodos dropping the licence in favour of in-house IP.


Well they did preview plastics this month, so it seems Prodos was putting money into it. But the fact that I had no idea a plastic KS was coming implies they weren't doing a great job getting word out...

But yeah, from Cabinet's side the fact they had 2 competing lines going - Space Crusade and Aliens vs Predator - AND had a sister company working on a 3rd game Starcide/Empire of Man would certainly be a negative.

I would kill for a Chronopia remake. Especially the Epic-scale version that was in the works but never got produced. I used to love the Chronopia sculpting style.


Though I never actually played the game, I always loved the background associated with Chronopia.
The Brutish Dwarfs who worship living animal totems, and live in large 'Ring-Hold' fortresses.
The Mega stuck up elves who at one point had enslaved everyone.
The Noble and regal Orcs & Goblins known as the 'Blackbloods'.
I actually collected all the books, and a bunch of the figures, but never had a desire to actually play it.

Warzone conversely, I thought had some interesting concepts, but didn't really ever capture my attention.

Chronopia should just be added as a new realm in AoS!

Probably not but what matters if they were a thing when the decision was likely actually made 6 months to a year ago.

Prodos basically is AvP the company now. Every month we're seeing some variation on a basic Predator or Xenomorph instead of actually expanding ranges, but it makes them money so it won't change. Even the AvP line is very scarce, missing tons of options listed in their rulebooks for everything but Aliens (who do have every option now and still get new sculpts)

Cabinet via Twitter just announced game is not dead. They will continue to produce rules and minis working with other companies.


Huh, well that was both quick and unexpected! Normally when Warzone goes down I expect 5-10 years of intervening downtime! I'm glad Cabinet (still feels weird not to call 'em Paradox, but I can get why they changed names) isn't just sitting on the IP this time around. Can't wait to see who they're working with if for no other reason than I won't have to give Prodos money to support my favourite game line.

Hmm, and if Cabinet are getting on the WZ license this fast after dropping Prodos, that actually gives me hope that they might be shopping around for Chronopia as well.

Either way, nice to see that it is only dying a little bit, instead of its usual fate.

Proof is in the pudding, even if the transition is smooth the new company has to get the molds/files, organize things, decide when and how to relaunch, get production up, new packaging...

Figure a year even if Prodos ensures a smooth transition and the new licencees are totally on the ball.

Update the title since there's only 2-3 days left when you can actually but these models.

Got my Grizzly, BTW, needs some filing to fit but looks great. It's about 125% the size of a Russ so can serve as a king Russ in my IG army (If I ever play again).

There is a wide difference between a typical for profit company and the money grubbing cash grabbers and you know it. No one is suggesting that they make miniatures for the community as a charity either because that would be just as ridiculous.

Exactly. And as Elbows pointed out, the added dollop of thievery paints a very different picture than a typical for-profit company.

Chronopia was awesome! The background of racial hatred due to enslavement was very different than the normal good races v evil races in most games. Regimented and militaristic orcs and goblins were also a great take on the typical 'unhinged greenskins' especially the goblin swordmasters

I played dwarves, slow but very cool with totems and heavy armour.

I have actually used the chronopia world as a D&D world and it was good fun.

Bit of a weird question, but what is actually packed into the Icarus Jetfighter kit? Looking at the box art it has one design I really want for DCU terrain, but all the actual models I can see are completely different in design. Can anyone help me out?

The box art isn't correct. What you get is actually the 3d model you can see. It's a shame as the box art is great, but the model itself is pretty lackluster.

Very good to hear them struggling with Warzone.
They actively and knowingly screwed over allot of people when it came out and never once apologised and instead blamed everyone else.
Then they release a gakky AvP excuse for a game and to further insult everyone openly rip off 40k and GW with a terrible space crusade farce.

Dude, what are you talking about? Empire of Man was already owned by Prodos to begin with. Archon is a subsidiary of Prodos.
