Two Important Items in today's update, CRANE infantry ReDesign and Shipping/KS completion information -
1. Original CRANE Infantry design scrapped - I have gone back to the drawing board.
Here is the original WIP design I previewed during the KS -
Im unhappy with it for a few reasons -
- They are not very Sci-fi, and dont fit the background of the game or the Corporation they are employed by.
- They dont mesh, design wise, with the CRANE Wardrones and other planned CRANE units.
- The design is boring, and quite similar to the Unity Guard.
SO.. here is the Work in Progress of the new version. Its the same style of infantry, but much more high tech industrial looking, and shares design elements with the CRANE Wardrone.
The Heavy rifle is mounted directly to the chest armour, to absorb recoil better when firing huge volleys at distant targets, which is where they excel.
As an apology for the delay this is causing (and the delay in general) I am increasing the Unit size from four to FIVE, for an extra FREE bonus miniature.
I hope the majority of backers will be very happy with this change, however if you really liked the old design, or really hate the new design, I am very sorry, and we can replace the CRANE figures in your pledge with either more Unity Guard, more Spectre Operatives, or another Unit of similar value, just get in touch with us to discuss.
I am hoping to have a preview of the completed Unit by the end of this week.
2.Info Graphic showing in detail what is left to complete and what needs doing.
We are making steady progress through the remaining figures in the campaign, and thanks all for your continued patience.
I have made a list, showing all the Units in the order they are being put into production. Where Units are not yet in production I have also put some notes on where I am at with the design process.
As we complete Units I will post updated versions of this image, so you can see when your pledge is likely to be shipping, as soon as the Yellow area covers all the figures in your pledge.
We have already shipped all Cataclysm backers their Wave 1, and all other Pledges which contain figures in the Yellow section.
