Breaking News from New Generation Customs!
Work has been going great for our team, we are ready to announce that the arrival of our first wave is on the horizon. Our first release will be coming on May 31st of this year, and with it a whole load of content, including:
- 5 Units from the Age of Annihilation run that never had cards released
- 3 Original Units (Cards, STL sources, painting guides, and online assets)
- War Journals, lore pieces, and unit bios
- 1 Map with two scenarios to support our story telling
- A number of recommended proxies for Age of Annihilation units that had released cards

Our releases will be story driven events set in the future shown to us by Age of Annihilation. At the end of May we will kick off Chapter 1 with this first wave, titled Revnaís Wrath, and begin telling a story from our Lore department that will show us new units and new worlds. On release day, everything that we create will be ready for you to print, play, and use at your table, or play online with the Online Heroscape or Tabletop Simulator platforms."

Hey all! Sorry we've been so quiet. We're still on schedule for wave one, and had scheduled with decreased availability due to the holidays in mind.

We'll be back with more substantial wave one news in the coming days. In the meantime, we'd like to share a peek at our "revised" rulebook, which aims to be a one-stop-shop covering the rules established in the BftU rulebook as well as the concepts detailed in the AoA draft rulebook.

Hey NGC players!

A quick update for today as we get closer to the end of May. All our units will be featuring painting guides that feature a picture of the painted unit, colors used, and some easy to follow steps. Let us know if this is something you'll find helpful!

Here is a guide for the Ticalla Titan for those of you that like to trample squad figures like insects.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FucCgr4aQAAxPyl?format=jpg&name=large

We think it is important that everyone is able to have a clear picture of what the unit looks like so they can paint their units accordingly. Our goal is to use engaging but simple color schemes that anyone can mimic easily for a baseline. Definitely feel free to elevate your individual pieces with signature details for your table though!

Hey NGC Players,

We are counting down to our release on May 31st, so each week we will be highlighting a different unit with a scene.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/1077973850974847017/1102568272886509568/Ewashia_art.png


Ewashia, Mistress of Tides is a powerful Dryan Wizard that fights for the General Volarak. Here she guards the edge of the rivers in the Forgotten Forest, those that oppose her soon learn that they are not safe... even on dry land.

Ewashia has a powerful special attack that can change the battlefield by forcing geysers of water to erupt from deep underground and wash her enemies away. We suggest playing her with familiars like Asli the Hornrender and Onshu the Welkineye.

She is currently set to release on May 31st in NGC's first wave complete with an STL for 3D printing, a paint guide, and lore detailing her place in the bigger story of Heroscape.

Come see how she works and get some playtests in (discord.gg/fc7ppFW3s4)!

This will be really useful! Especially for painting noobs like me who have never picked up a brush :) One thought I had was whether a less "busy" background might be helpful? Just for the painting guides, of course. The background looks awesome for card/promotional art and should be showcased as such. Looking forward to May 31!

Hey NGC fans!

We are getting back to work and looking forward to our next release of units, maps, and lore. Today there are some fun things to show off:

Greetings NGC players,

A spooky addition to valhalla is on the way, but who was he summoned by? This fearsome entity hails from a planet that we have never seen before, a world where more possibilities lie in wait for us. Care to speculate?

Good Morning NGC Fan!

We have 3 updates from this week:

1. Painting tutorial for Ewashia!

https://youtu.be/GyMMg_xYNGM

RogueIdealist delivers a great product again.

2. Lore piece, Thormun's Journal 263

https://newgenerationcustoms.com/post/thormun-s-war-journal-263

New lore entry from Thormun's perspective that helps fill our fans in on where things are going, great writing on this one from the team!

Here we unearth some classic themes and imagery that are factoring into the future and tying loose ends together that the original run of heroscape never got to explore. Be sure to keep up on the lore because that is what drives our project for units, scenarios, and new entries in the greatest battle of all time.

3. A proxy card and book (https://www.heroscapers.com/community/showthread.php?t=62653) for AoA unit, Imperator Kayne!

Check out our discord for the STL and painting advice

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/1073458362550845480/1131752319860605040/Imperator_Kayne_front.png

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/1073458362550845480/1131759641643200522/Imperator_Kayne_back.png

The AoA figures are very important to us because our units and stories are being told in that future of Valhalla complete with the new planets, generals, and themes that were presented. If you are waiting for a proxy for a specific unit or want us to tinker with one of the unfinished AoA products let us know what you are waiting for.

We may have already started!

Good Afternoon NGC Fan!

We have a direction shift to announce for our project today.

Renegade and Age of Annihilation

When Age of Annihilation's crowdfund failed, it was uncertain whether we would ever see an official release for that amazing new content, and we at NGC were determined to make it playable to the community no matter what Heroscape's future held. Thanks to Renegade Games, we now know that Heroscape: Age of Annihilation will see a triumphant return to store shelves in 2024.

https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/1073458362550845480/1136904729717391400/Zed_nesbitt_ad_copy.png?width=883&height=662

As such, NGC has decided to release the last of our concept work on Age of Annihilation figures Zed, Girushia, Haluchott and the Vorid Glide Strikers, in Wave 2: Volarak's Vow, coming August 31st. From here, NGC will deliver innovative new customs set in the Age of Annihilation, and continue our work of supporting 3D-printed customs by and for the Heroscape community.

We hope you are ready to welcome wave 2 and even more ready for Wave 3 that is entirely made up of original content. More on that to follow later this fall.

NGC's work thus far!

Wave 2 is just around the corner, set to drop the last day of August and it marks the end of our work done on all things proxy / AoA. We accomplished one of our initial goals that we set out to do but don't worry, everything we made will still be used at any events for NGC in the near future.

We are excited to announce that NGC will be holding a unit design contest. On 8 September we will announce a theme and open up for community submissions and allow 2 weeks for entry. The low down is that you'll need an STL, a write up for the unit, and some awesome creativity. The winner of this contest will get to work on their unit with the NGC team for a special release in the near future.

To get ready for the theme we suggest looking at Cryptids, from urban myths to the drabbles of the SCP Foundation and all things in between. We will be looking for the unexplainable. Be ready for more details as we get closer!

Hello NGC Fans!

Today we have two fun announcements. Wave 2 will be dropping next week but wave 3 is on the horizon for us with tons of original content. Later today, we have some new units will be making their way to public playtesting. To set the state for that we have some great scenery and a new piece of lore!

We also have our debut on the Heroscape.org army builder so you can set up games and events using our units in tandem with classic and VC units.

NGC is happy to release Wave 2: Volarak's Vow!

Live on the NGC website is our latest wave. This is a smaller release because we wanted to get these units out the door as they are based on concepts from the Age of Annihilation campaign. Doubtless Renegade Studios will be releasing different versions of these units. When we heard that we strove to get these concepts out the door for immediate use so we could focus on a different direction. Our goal will always be compatibility with the base game, meaning classic and the new release that Renegade Studios will bring.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/1078906692726689802/1146949881190170685/81aaae_43a1416df5f8435986b02cd9ed6e400fmv2.png

Our custom versions will be legal for the time being in NGC events, act as good proxies, and stick around as alternate versions depending on how the Renegade release goes. In this wave we have:


Air Marshal Zed Nesbitt
Girushia, Grove Keeper
Haluchott, Corruptor of Beasts
Vorid Glide Strikers


Please check out our official website to download the cards, see the bios, and get started with print files: newgenerationcustoms.com

Online Heroscape Assets are live for this wave: https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1kBrcMGtvvG3uB1YAxLankJvX7aowy1xdQhidZOIoWHs/edit

We thank you for your support and invite you to continue with us on the journey to Wave 3: Whenuan Streetside. From this point on, NGC will be focusing only on original units with no direct ties to the Age of Annihilation campaign. This wave in particular will be exploring a new setting that has a theme we hope you enjoy. Drop by our Discord to find out more: https://discord.gg/vnYkc8Jc

Greetings NGC Players

Wave 3 is quickly approaching and with it come a few developments. The first being that the first official unit design contest has come to a close. Amidst the intense competition and strong designs we are happy to congratulate Sky Whale and the Stellanaut entry as the winner.

Second, we want to give everyone a sneak peak at Wave 4 where we switch gears a bit and look at some original characters that tie into the classic story of Heroscape and will be shaping our lore. The first is shown below, courtesy of RogueIdealist. We hope you enjoy this new Marro Warlord, it'll have some unique interactions though I don't think that Romans will be the go to build for it on your tables.

Today we are happy to release Wave 3: Whenuan Streetside. Whenua is a planet of our own making full of Cryptids that defy reason and Agents that try to make sure the population doesn’t see the unexplainable… or receives a healthy dose of amnestic treatment. Come check out the line up of new units:


Asli the Hornrender (https://www.newgenerationcustoms.com/post/the-book-of-asli-the-hornrender)

Volgrun Sureshot (https://www.newgenerationcustoms.com/post/the-book-of-volgrun-sureshot)


We have all the resources for you to get started whether you need to contact a printer in the community or want to get the STLs for yourself. If you are starting with an unpainted mini then look no further and check out this video by the RogueIdealist where he is gearing up to take on frightening Nightwalker (just the intro thus far but he does all our paint tutorials):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJU-Sz6M964

We also have a few objects for the map builder in all of us, some of them even explode. We hope you enjoy using the derelict vehicles that block ranged attacks… and explode! There are also lamp posts to ward off the night atmosphere conditions, these may come in handy in scenarios and more serious games where you want to try fighting in the dark.

What’s next?

Look to see another wave from NGC in the spring where we introduce some more interesting things to the game. We will continue to support the community with 3D printed customs that explore previously unused design space by the established game and by other customs projects. That being said, we anxiously await the revival of the game and are looking forward to games with all of you with more fun units.

Happy Friday NGC players,

Update time before everyone scatters off for holiday fun this winter.


The Cryptid Contest unit is on its way, we are in the middle of development and just started getting tests in! So far it's turning out to be just as interesting and spooky as we had hoped, really excited to get a quantum radiation themed Astronaut out as a special release soon.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/1158107464831615016/1164581429636780132/20231019_100813.jpg?ex=6568a5f9&is=655630f9&hm=7fdf6697d8387bb8e8a92f5213d51cbcdd80c91019c5b31d2ab8e63a2af18838&

You'll want a few of these!

Look for wave 4 sometime in March. We will continue work on our original characters and settings, our release will continue to have synergies and compatibility with Classic Heroscape and Valhalla Customs. Since Renegade has yet to reveal the goods, we will avoid trying to make any more direct synergies with factions seen in the Age of Annihilation line up for the moment. Hopefully we can send you all warm thoughts for the spring... think dry and arid if you need a hint for next wave's theme!

A bit warm but better than snow!

NGC will be featured for an event at an in person convention! HexiCon II is a live event held on the weekend of February 28th in Elizabethtown, Kentucky at a local game store called Hard Knox Games.
