Have a question?
When will the SS Vampire and the Draugr be generally available - I thought I'd added them to my pledge - but I don't seem to have them :-/!
Sorry to hear that Drew, we'll check on that and see what we can do on our end.
How many backers in the UK have received their Stuff, mine and Simons hasn't shown yet!
Great book, I'm glad I pledged for it.
Awesome, can't wait!
Picking up the books from the printer tomorrow and packing pledges Saturday. Expect an update tomorrow evening.
Any news to report, are you guys still on for the next week or two?
Busy getting everything put together for the second edition rulebook! Expect an update early next week!
Tap Tap Tap......
How do we look for the project?
Lawn Dart - Email me at email@example.com with your new address.
I need to change my shipping address...does anyone know who should I contact in order to do this?
Thanks, can't wait to hear more! :)
Once the second edition book is launched, all Over the Wire articles will no longer be considered 'official'. We're going through the OTW articles for items to include in the second edition rulebook, but many will be dropped entirely and others will have to wait until future expansions.
Does the old material from the old site still count for this game?
Excellent looking stuff!
Gratz! Now where's my book and minis???? ;)
sorry gang, had to drop mine a little for this holiday stuff.
come home for a vacation and people want them to buy you...... stuff. :P
Not even the Tumbleweed? That's disappointing, would like to make use of mine.
Vehicle rules will change to make them much easier/clearer to use. We plan to only tweak the available vehicles slightly, but expect all the vehicles from the core rulebook to be there.
Any word on vehicles in the book?
May be a new goal on 12,5k will help to rise some more interest? :)
Went for the rulebook for now. Would of gone for a Detachment. Though couldn't find one that I liked the look and feel of all the figures in it.
Hi all, I'd like to invite all of you to the Facebook page where some other discussion is going on. Follow the link:
Nice work all! 105% down!
@PJ - no need to wait for expansions, they'll be in the book. AE-WWII: European Theater includes the occult units.
next 15k ;)
Yes, we made it!!!!!
Sweet mother of pearl!
Come on, you apes!!! Take that hill!!!
I've got a few of these guys from back in the day. Are the extra stuff from the old darksun website still in for this game?
Hard to choose the extra stuff with which I'd like to get in on. I've got a jonesing for some of this type of gaming, and really want to get a bunch, but I'm in the middle of traveling right now.
GRRR..... Heck with it, here's a few more bucks, we'll sort it out later. :P
Will that are rewards and stretch goals be placed into the expansion books, I''d hate to see the Vampire, Hoodoo Conjurer and Draugr go to waste.
@Metodi - Thanks! We'll send out a survey once the kickstarter closes. That survey will have your selections, etc... Thanks again.
@Richard: No - but he's an add-on. Also, the April date is as solid as we can make it for now. There is always a slight risk of schedule slip, but we'll keep everyone informed along the way.
Hi, I am new to the world of AE-WWII. I like the models very much, like as well the gameplay and I'm looking forward to have even more fun. I just want to know how or where I have to state what I want for my pledge? Good job people, I'm sure we will make it!
By the way, how solid is the April date estimation? I'm planning to move to another state in May, and I'd hate for there to be any issues with it all.
The lab rat was a hero option in the 1st edition. I'm sure it will continue to be a playable model in the 2nd edition.
Does everyone above Private level also get the German Lab Rat model? And is the Lab Rat a playable unit/character?
There's also a missing SS model that would be nice to see...the Krieghexe!
woudl it be possible to get some of the other minis as options?? like the mechanic, greenman and golem?
I wish the Brits got some lovin' in the first book. Even if it was just the break down for regular units. they don't necessarily need ray guns, roots, and mad science, just a presence. A little something, kind of like the MI-13 guys from Incursion. Hunters.
Just upped my pledge! This is gonna be close!
@Gregory Each $10 base pack add-on gets you 10 bases.
is it 10 bases or for all the models at the particular level. I just want to add as appropriate.
Hi Ian, great to have you onboard! We can definitely add a detachment pack as an add-on if folks think it would be a good idea.
Right now, only the Recruit and Private levels get a lab rat. They are for sale right now at the Blackball Games store though.
We did get AE-Bounty and have some great plans for that line as well. Thanks for joining Operation: Kickstart!
Howdy guys! Been an AE fan for a while. I didn't see detachments as add-ons, just starter sets. I'd like to add on the detachments as some of the figures in the detachments didn't seem to be included in the starter sets.
Do the higher support levels also get a Lab Rat model like the recruit?
Did you guys get AE: Bounty also?
Matthew - We're still tinkering with the role of the Schutzkommando. Right now he'll most likely unlock any units while the Krieghexe will unlock Supernatural Beings and the Vril Engineer will unlock Occultists. So he's still useful (and with a 'lethal' StG45, pretty awesome)!
I see the Schutzkommando has been offered as an add-on. Since (apparently) one is no longer needed to field a Vril Engineer, can you clarify what its role will be in the second edition of the rules? My speculation is that the Vril Engineer unlocks Occult units for the SS, while the Schutzkommando unlocks the supernatural units, but that's just a guess.
@Matthew Senkow. I'm a veteran wargamer but new to the AE-WWII. Love the alternative universe setting, how can you go wrong with chumans, nazi vampires, and mechanical walkers on the sme table?
The models in the starters come with all the options available.
If you wanted to exchange a detachment pack for two starters, we can definitely allow folks to do so.
*2 starter-sets - miniatures only, no rulebook.
