Have a question?
Update 36 just posted- a big one! It includes the first release of one of two Combatant Design Tools, a spreadsheet for designing Polyversal Combatants for your own miniatures collection.
As we are approaching the first anniversary of the original release date what is the actual status of the release of this game?
Any status on the update?
Looking forward to the update.
Well, that's some exceptionally good news. :-)
I had been starting to get a feeling the topic was being avoided. With the proper context, it's now clear that it wasn't being addressed because it isn't an issue.
Hey guys- no need for concern Sable. Doug is ready to ship the other half. Even without that half, I have enough of the DRM stuff to ship everyone's minis.
Rules layout and scenarios remain the main work- also working with graphic artist who's been also on leave for 1 month- to finish up the backs of tiles and some other minor things like icons for some of the lesser used special abilities.
Sorry for slow update- been out of town for both Adepticon and then my full time job on two occasions. Just got back. In the mean time, even while gone, I have been busy writing scenarios and doing what I can while away.
Adepticon report and update soon.
I'm starting to feel concern about the lack of news on the rest of the DRM order. If the status of the remainder remains unknown, at some point we're going to need an alternative path forward.
Looking forward to any news you can share!
Quick note: Heading to Adepticon! Full report upon return and an update. If you're going to the show, please stop by. Watch Twitter (@CEWargames) and FB for updates from the show.
Ooh baby, just read the update. Excitement levels are increasing :)
@Anthony, Working tirelessly every day on a lot of aspects to get us to delivery. We're getting very close- my best estimate is a few months from now. I'll know a more concrete delivery timeline once I receive the full DRM order (received half last week). I'll be keeping everyone informed as we near that point.
@R.J., YES! Yesterday received 1/2 of our order! Very excited about that (See our latest update just posted for more and for some photos).
@Matt, Sent you a message on address update.
Anyone know when the game is going to arrive????
Do you guys have any news on DRM delivering yet?
I have moved and can't for the life of me find where to update my mailing address. Can't wait to get the game but nervous about it going to the wrong place.
@Sable, Yes, received it and passed it on to Ken upon receipt. Thanks!
@Maelstrom- received, responded, and processed.
@collins - in a direct message to you, I've asked for a refund.
Hi guys. Did you get my response to your message on here?
Same to you as well Corey! Actually yes, I'd be up for a game sometime soon. Let's talk by message and set up something.
@Will- That's actually a good catch. We discuss it in the Command and Control section and mention there is a cost (I think there should be since you're paying more for Elite units, for example) but, we didn't put a cost in Setup. I think it was in and out of the rules at various times. Anyway, we'll be editing in a cost for Command Units in the Setup section, likely as a Psych profile.
@Brian- Still in initial layout on the rulebook with the artist. He has all of the printer specs for setting up the file, margins, etc., and we've been extensively discussing how we're going to tackle everything- graphics packages, QR codes, style, etc.... And yes, as soon as the PDF of the rules is completed, we'll send that out to every backer!
@Duskland- Still waiting on DRM to deliver. Initial kitting is happening now of what we have, so staying very busy with that and many other aspects of production. I'll know a better ETA once I receive DRM's miniatures.
Hi Byron, hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Looking forward to an update as it has been awhile. Can we get a production update on the various components (especially Dark Horse)? Looking forward to the game! I've got a 9'x5' city scape in RVA if you are inclined to get in on some games!
I may be a bit late to the party, but I've been playing around with constructing my units using the points system in the backer only document. I might have missed something, but I can't find the points adjustment for units to have "command" status? Otherwise it's a great system and I'm enjoying building an army with it.
How's the rulebook coming? If the layout is finished, is it possible to get the PDF of the rulebook?
Nice seeing all the photos of delivered minis on Facebook. What’s the eta for delivery?
RECEIVED plasmablast games miniatures. More to follow, update coming with some pics.
Plasmablast has shipped but they have not yet arrived. I've requested a new update from Dark Realm.
Has Plasmablast shipped/arrived?
Hey guys just a real quick update. I'm heading out of town for work for like 11 days :/. But, here are some quick progress updates: 1) Plasmablast Games COMPLETED PRODUCTION! I don't have the minis yet but that leaves just 1 more company for minis production. Great news. 2) Ken and I are finalizing the spreadsheet that calculates costs for designed minis. 3) Ken and I are filling in examples in the rules (those were placeholders). Rules are locked down otherwise unless we see some major issue. 4) Carl has nearly completed programming the script that generates tiles in the proper format. Awesome stuff. Catch you guys when I get back.
I'm really curious how the rulebook is coming along?
Good Morning, hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Any updates on Dark Realms or Plasmablast Games minis?
You too Corey!
Looking forward to the update. Great seeing you at Historicon!
Do about that update!
@all, new update coming soon. Post-historicon report with a video, updates on production, new art, all that good stuff.
@Michael- Marios is re-vamping his site. I've actually seen a draft and it's nice.
@Glen- Not yet, but soon. Marios estimates end of August for completion of their production. I'll cover that in the update.
plasmabast games? I went to visit their website and it doesn't exist anymore.
Did Plasmablast deliver? Any update from Dark Realm?
Take your time, thanks for updating us. Good to know it's still in progress. Looking forward!
And making steady progress every week with an insane amount of hard work.
Let's please keep it positive here. I am extremely excited to get this game out to you guys, just need you to bear with me. It's much better to deliver late and right than rushed and wrong. We'll get there.
Well, we are now in the beginning of Q3
Thanks for the update yesterday, sounds like things are moving along. Anticipation is building! I think the real question on everyone's mind is how many painters is Sable Wyvern about to employ???
Shooting for Q3 but in short, ASAP. Latest update just posted with lots of progress updates.
Would love to get an "estimated" timeline for shipping? At this rate, I take it we are looking at 4th quarter of 2017?
Just returning from Origins. I'll get an update up this week. It's been crazy.
@Maelstrom- If I can answer something more specifically, please let me know. The next update will show some pics of newly received minis from Hawk Wargames (received yesterday) and some demos I ran at Origins last week.
Also, Plasmablast Games, per Marios, is finishing up production of their minis!
It answered my questions and didn't answer them at the same time. I guess I won't worry about where my money went out seeing pics of the minis that you have received, etc...
Please don't think we're idle on this massive project if I'm not posting updates as frequent as some other project creators. There is a ton going on and a lot of good things happening to get this game out to you from multiple companies, artists, and manufacturers. I assure you that I'm working on my part of this every single day... A big update will be posted soon but I'm knee deep in Origins prep at the moment (Origins is this week).
@Maelstrom, I replied to your direct message earlier today, hopefully answering the status questions you had. If not, please let me know.
