In the not too distant future, I'd like to pick up some models for the Texans and possibly Underdwellers sub-factions, but I'd prefer to wait for official rules for them (particularly for the Underdwellers). And then there are the rules for aircraft and the Siege Europa supplement that has been teased for a while now. However, releases for this game seem to have slowed to a crawl in the last number of months. Is there any update on a time table for any of these releases?
Thanks a bunch! I really like what's been done so far.
The underdweller rules were a beta version from the previous company that owned AQMF and never completed. Hopefully IG will get a supplement out this year as they are releasing new products. Correcting the mistakes in the main rulebook pdf would be a start.
I think I based the Texans on the pdf released by the previous firm. I too would be interested in seeing updated/revised rules for them. The previous firms beta test rules were kinda off, I agree, but, in order to at least play with the figures we all bought (well, some bought), I plunged ahead with the stuff I've posted. Some of the units, like the Magma Men, were pretty straight forward. The rules get funky where the underground drillers and other artillery/assault units come in. Until/if IG decides to publish something more concrete, at least there's some you can try. I did some interesting scenarios based on them, my favorite being the encounter in Yellowstone National Park with elements of two different cavalry patrols and their forward park bases. See threads in OOB/TO&E sections.
We'll see. Here's hoping you're right about the add on. May IG should also consider a supplement rule book for oddities and additional storyline/figures outside the original scope of the game. As if they weren't busy enough already. Good Luck IG at Historicon - may you be blessed with sales and lots of new players at any demos you give. Hope my buddy Robert Pudelka gets to play; he's a big fan & pretty good tactical player. Dang I miss being able to go to the conventions with him...
