Update!

Hi, guys, we are flat out getting Core Space just right so the gaps between updates are a bit longer than usual, you know what fusspots we are! 

Anyway, here's a short (LOL!) vid of Colin demonstrating some of the Core Space rules and having a good old waffle. In it he explains the schedule predictions and some of the new rules we've implemented including demos of burst fire, effortless actions, security guards and the Machine and Merg classes and skills.

ARTWORK  

Our captive artist, Nick, has done a stellar job on art duties. Not only did he do the Core Space box art but he's also managed to do his top work on roughly 50 characters in a ludicrously short time. Cheers, Nick! 

Colin has then used the art for the character cards and I will be using it again for the rulebook and character profiles.

SPIEL ESSEN 2018

For the first time ever we will be attending Essen in October. Come see us, have a chat, buy some stuff and explain to us in excruciating detail how we can improve on our products ;)  

BACKERKIT  

A very few of you have yet to complete your Backerkit survey despite my constant harassment :) In short if you don't give us your address or pay for your shipping or add-ons then you won't get your stuff! When everyone else is posting their setups on the interwebs or bragging in the comments you'll be crying into your pillow :D  

Finally, here's some cool photos of some of the Core Space minis fully painted (yours will of course be a fetching grey).

      Finally got to watch the video.

      John, Got that in the rules already. You can lose crew true death and then hire either between missions, on missions and even hire crew on a tempera basis :)

      Andrew, If Ellen Die the Brutus (The Merg) will become disconnected and go nuts, basically be controlled like AI, charging around and attacking everyone in sight. Brutus can even use his skills to disconnect for a short while to increase his combat attacks :)

    3. Andrew Scholl on

      Can't get Merg outta my head ...I might do a story-line where the Merg is in control of the 'controller'.. working with the Purge .... halfway through the campaign switch boards from Merg to Augmented (or Mech)

    4. Andrew Scholl on

      I love the Merg. What would happen if Ellen dies .. and Brutus reigns? Trouble for everyone? Thanks so much for the update .. love these, and love how the game is being tweaked and improved upon.

      I really want to see a permadeath option; where you can lose crew, but also recruit from civilian/crew on the board to replace lost crew members.

      Hey Dave,

      Don't worry those characters look great when printed and you will see loads of those characters in their fully Core Spaceness in the rule book too :oD

    8. "DUMP" on

      lovely bit of vid there, entirely chuffed to get this

      @BS The artwork is awesome, the initial work was great and I'd have been happy with those on my cards but the latest iteration really does show how much you care about the project and pushing the boat out. I hope you let Nick out for some fresh air once in a while :)
      I know the cards have been through many cycles of change, but with this fantastic art work I can't help that the character cards don't show them off as much as the standalone pictures. An idea... maybe turn up the translucency on the nebula background so that the character really pops. Just me opinion, I know how well the colours look on your scenery so looking forward to these too.

      Robert - No worries.

      1. Auxiliaries were the Drones and beasts and things. We never sculpted those in the end as we ran out of time, but they will be a thing in the future so don't worry :)

      2. The Galactic core are not useable as crew, but it was the Gangs that were and they now have crew sides. GC would not fit right with the skills and also the minis would be hard to tell apart as a crew, thematically it does not work, but in the future with some new cool sculpts I'm sure we can have a renegade GC crew who have spent too long out in the black and so now they 'trade'. :)

      The GC do commandeer the security if they are in LOS and medium range so then the security instantly become part of the GC and fight with them.

      The GC now have an elite side to their card as do the Purge.... but we will leave that for another update ;)

      @BS
      Running on limited sleep but what gamer hasn't so I hope I don't ask to stupid of questions.
      1. Are drones and pets still a thing?
      2. if I remember in the KS campaign you said you could play the galactic core if so how do they interact with the security guards.
      3. Is this an official update I didn't see Colin with his cup of tea? beginning to think this is a purge live one ruse to make us think we have a fighting chance.

      looking great have a feeling we need bigger freaking guns!

      Great news. Hope to get the time to visit you in Essen and buy some more clips 😉.

      Ooh no that is some lurvely artwork! Minis are looking good as well, which is, y'know, kinda a big deal.

      I haven't watched the video yet but do I take it we can now use the playable characters as additional civvies? Because that would be a cool way to add more variety to the NPC pool!

    16. Charles Lee Ray on

      I should add those painted minis are stunning. I doubt I can emulate this standard but I hope to do a good job on them

      This game will be my life
