I'm really eager for the character models.

My biggest gripe so far in building these has been the lack of optional bits. Some units really don't get much variety (Brutes) where as some you can really tinker with waht parts get used (Knights).

I'll say this- I usually don't like painting big mobs of models but I'm already a third of the way through painting the entire starter box.

Hey guys! Shameless event plug!

I’m running a 600-point beginner’s tournament event at Tacticon 30 in Denver, CO on Sunday, September 1 at 10:00.

600 point armies, must be assembled, no paint requirements. I will be providing prize support myself. If I don’t get at least 6 people, I will run 600 point demo games and will give out prizes in a raffle or something. I’d like everyone to walk away with something!

If you’re in the area, come out and play!

https://tabletop.events/conventions/tacticon-30/schedule/54

I believe that this will be the first Conquest event...like, at all...so I’ll take pictures and let people know how it goes!

One of those two minis is a must buy (plastic or resin). The other one is clearly a hospitalier.

So the full range of resin characters for 100k and Spire hit the shelves yesterday along with the Steel legion and Spire archers.

The packaging quality is immense.

The resin quality is A1 standard and there isn't a sign of banding or warping in ANY of the thinnest components!

The digital cards that we were worried about are in fact real physical cards but they have a digital tag on them that you will be able to scan with the army builder app when its released! So you can instantly reveal the stats and rules if you haven't printed out your army list! What a cool suprise!

Will post videos of unboxings after the weekend (off camping now)




Automatically Appended Next Post:
Dweghom still on track for end of September.

Yannis has personally spoke on the release delay saying that the teething issues with logistics have been ironed out and the ripples from that will iron out gradually. The main issue now is the demand XD

heroes are resin? I guess I should've been paying better attention. Figured they'd be plastic.

Not a problem for me- just need to actually see them show up in distribution in the US now!

Yes, alongside his beloved Wrath of Kings.

I'm expecting this Black Friday to be amazing.

All those hero models are still listed as preorders on MM and they're all out of stock too. So nyah.

If MM has all the Wrath of Kings stock these days and really wants to move it without being hand held by CMON then yeah, it could be a glorious Black Friday.

They had a big 75% off sale a couple months ago. I would expect Black Friday to be at least as exciting.

As for Conquest minis, so far the Knights are the most impressive to me, by which I mean I was blown away by them. I'm sorely tempted to buy some more, along with some Blood Angel chalice bits and, of course, a Ravenwing Accessory Sprue, to make some Bretonnian Grail Knights. Or maybe get another Knight hero, leave his creepy baby face exposed, and add a bunch of plastic hands and genitals to make him look even more Kingdom Death than he already does.

I think all the recent resin heroes for both factions just got released a few days ago.

Should be officially on sale and off pre-order...soon.

Yeah, Miniature Market is out of stock of both the Starter (again!) and the Steel Legion box.
I've been waiting to buy until I could get the starter plus archer drones plus steel legion all in a go.
Hopefully soon.
I think the new GW contrast range will be perfect for painting up Spire drones, and I've picked up a couple in anticipation.

I saw some of the miniatures in person the other day and was... Extremely unimpressed, to put it lightly. I recall seeing the abomination, men at arms, and a couple others I don't recall the name of. Are these earlier sculpts and future releases will be higher quality?

Yeah I saw them in person last week and they were so bad it wasn't even funny. Shame really as I've followed it's progress for a while and was pretty hyped about the game.

Looks like they are making some very cool looking t-shirts! I'll take a 100 Kingdoms one, please

Spoiler:






Also, the army builder is really neat. Quality stuff.
The only thing that is somewhat annoying when making army lists for Conquest are the Mainstay/Restricted options tied to certain heroes. Particularly, when a unit is only available as restricted to a single hero. Or a hero only having access to one type of unit, nothing else. It really forces you to build a force in a certain direction if you want to include something in particular. The starter set for the 100K is not even legal! And I don't want to get an imperial officer just for the crossbows....

yeah man, its due to the lore of the world.

Theist priests wouldnt ever have a regiment of men at arms in their personal warband but if they are allied with a noble then there is nothing stopping him from joining them even though they are in a seperate warband.

Fluff over unit soup any day

Of course, fluff over soup is always better

BUT I really think a minimum flexibility for some choices should be allowed to not make it that restricted, which could probably be done without compromising the fluff. Sure a Priest will never have some Order units in his warband, for example, that is quite logical. There are however more "general" units that don't have a strong affiliation like the mercenary crossbowmen (as per available fluff). Wouldn't a noble lord employ them if he considers them useful?

So, I simply think that between complete soup and very restrictive choices, there could be a middle spot

well the guys have always maintained that the lists as written are for competitive play and that they shold never hold you back from from enoying the game how you want.

WRT crossbowmen. we've been using them as mainstay for nobles until now and it works okay.

Ladies and gentlemen, to countermand delays in our very aggressive release schedule, while remaining committed to the fast population of the game, we are in the middle of restructuring our logistics and production schedules, so as to normalize our shipping dates. As a result, we will be shipping the first Dweghom wave in the third week of October, BUT it will now include more units. Three expansion boxes, including a dual-kit for a total of four different regiments, will stand ready to be fielded, commanded by two characters. Very shortly after, the first wave of Nords will be shipped, including characters, so before the end of the year, all four factions will be able to mount fully legal armies on the field, as has always been our goal.

Come January, we will be able to focus entirely on fleshing out our starting factions, at least until next summer, when new roars and drums of war will sound. We are also working hard to bring you an extra Holidays surprise for December but more on that when the deal is sealed.

You left out the rest...

This delay is not ideal, either for you or for us, and for that we apologize. If it’s any consolation, there is a great deal of frustration in having plastic Dweghom and Nords parading around the office without being able to bring them to you. But in order to deliver the consistency, volume and quality of releases we want in the future, we are confident that this is the best way to proceed right now. Bear with us. Our long term plans are not affected in any way and, if anything, this helps us build a stronger foundation for them. In the meantime, we can only thank you for embracing Conquest as you have. The feedback, response and enthusiasm we have seen is beyond belief!
