You aren't made to fight for your masters but to die at their convenience.

Life is cheap when you're made to die









And another presentation from Leo at BoW. Lookout for game play and a battle report video soon.

So now we know the merchant princes have airship fleets.

They're my biggest interest in this biomancer stuff so far.

35mm is roughly Kingdom Death scale, which looks *great* for true scale minis.

Spire infiltrators look sick as feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeth As much as I want Nords, the two player set is on my one to by list. It looks like a no-brainer to show it off to my buddies.

but DWEGHOM though! So it turns out that they are Para Bellums imagining of dwarves by the look of the artwork but ofcourse no use of the D word in the Interview..... created by the Dragons to recover the essence of War from deep within Eá so that they may unleash it upon the world.... :O

Wait,

So is it 15mm or 35mm? I thought a read a bit back people were unhappy with the smaller size?

Looks way too big to be 15mm. 15mm is Dropzone Commander scale.

no no, it's 35mm.... which actually isnt far off GW's current fantasy 28mm "heroic" scale.

All infantry models fit comfortably on 25mm round bases for example.

I thought Dropzone Commander was 10mm?

But yes, this one is 35mm.

Time of Legends: Joan of Arc is 15mm. This is supposed to be 35mm.

For mass battle, I like the look of 15mm better. Though 10mm is better yet again. A unit of 12 figures just doesn't look right compared to a unit of 50 or 100 or 200.

honestly, I just want to paint nice models well, which I can't do a 10 or 15mm 'cause theyre too small and I don't want to paint 100, forget 200 XD

12 to 24 in a warband will suit me just fine

At 15mm or 10mm, you're not doing eyes or other details. Basic color is enough.

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Absolutely love the minis shown so far, and the background is really helping to pad out the conception of the universe.

It feels like someone combined Clive Barker's imagination, HR Geiger and Dark Souls - then mixed it up together.

Hopefully it will help to fill part of that hole left by WHFB, while being something of its own identity.

It's now made me want to go off and watch Nightbreed again

I have been waiting for this video. The look of the game was already drawing me in, but I need some rules and gameplay.

the above Lets Play has the basics there. Command stack and activation order, the 2 action mechanic (fighting then charging! eh?) and ofc the Offside rule.

Agreed that the unit cards are only really useful once they are flipped and activated... partial win/fail XD may be worth having a quick reference too.

The next BoW video is going to be a full battle report, which should reveal more and tie together what we already know

Well this video was enough to make put me at the "unless something bad happens I'm getting it" stage.

I love the design of the spire stuff, and the rules seem pretty good from my limited viewing.

Looking forward to the next video.

So I have an unassembled spire thresher abomination on my desk. Earlier I theorised it must have limited posability to keep the cost down....

Well it has ball joints at every single joint! Hips, knees, shoulders, elbows and waist. The only joint that isn't a ball and socket is the neck

Peace out

Same here!

I was kind of so-so on this at best, but watching that video and seeing some more pics of the minis...wow!

Hm, this is really impressive. An intriguing background, good miniatures, good material, good price, mass battle rules, Cavatore involved...Looks like the beginning of 2018 will already be harsh to my wallet.

Now I wonder what they will propose for the support of the player community...no matter the game, if you are the only player in your town, it will end in a sad way.


Well @Sarouan I posed that exact post to Para Bellum as a question asking what their future plans for community support would entale...

They made it clear that they want staff in every country running events and it would be nice to have community volunteers make up a % of that. Ofc much of this is dependent on market reactions and will be solidified in the first year of release but as a side note: I have just been sent (completely by suprise may I add) a two player starter set and additionally, a unit of Steel Legion and Brute Drones! And I will be conducting Demo days around the South of the UK as soon as they are prepared
