If we are to standardize, I think we should lead with Anitar's updated Classic layout card and move the AoA released card down with the other promotional images and still note them as having outdated information.

Thoughts?

EDIT: To whomever repped me to tell me there is no "official imagery," when I say "official imagery" I am using it as shorthand for "Promotional imagery distributed to the public by Avalon Hill employees" and I fail to see the distinction between my longhand and "official."

I, for one, am in full support of proudly displaying the proof that I've created something worth creating.

I wanted to bump this topic and get input from y’all other current book creators, @Vydar_XLIII @Chill @Blue Trails . I think it doesn’t make sense for the first visible card to have incorrect information and be unfinished, so I want to swap mine around, and do so for any future AoA books I do, but I also thinks it’s important to have consistency in the books. What do y’all think?
That logic tracks. I'll edit Xenithrax's Book to follow this idea.

Yes!
They are safe for books, because we acknowledge what they are: Anitar pieced cleverly them together from information that AH put out into the world. Because they were never released, the same way the rest of the AoA units were, we on the War Council can't confirm or deny the fine work that she did, or answer questions about the designs.
Good to know! I'm glad to hear that, because those designs looked the most fun of any that had been "revealed." Here's Haluchott.

Re: The Books of Age of Annihilation INDEX

This is awesome, thank you guys! Some great work here.

I also am in favor of putting the units that were never released in any fashion into a separate list than those which were either officially released or pieced together by Anitar. I know I for one will be finding proxies for those that were released/ pieced together but not those that are fully "personal customs."

I also might change the terminology of those Anitar pieced together to "unofficial leaks" to distinguish it from the "personal customs" that have little relation to information shared with us by AH. The 3 categories of AoA books would thus be:
1. Official Reveals
2. Unofficial Leaks
3. Personal Customs

Secondly, would it be good to put a link to the proxy thread in this post? I for one would like that

Re: The Books of Age of Annihilation INDEX

I propose that the index track all "revealed" units. Units were revealed in one of two ways: either released deliberately, or (in the case of 2) exposed accidentally. Either way, they were "revealed," which was good enough to unite them under that one banner. The OP of Anitar's two discovered units can and should include a note crediting her for the impressive work she did piecing those designs together.

Greeings, gentle reader interested in the Age of Annihilation. Thank you for your attention to this moment in the history of our beloved game. I would like to share something with you.

The Avalon Hill team released many units to the world - and to us, the community - including several even as the campaign was winding down, with no chance of success. I am fortunate to have been released from the NDA to discuss certain subjects, including the evolution of designs that have been released. To that end, I am permitted to say, and I do say, the following:
Every unit that was released was in final form to our satisfaction as designers and playtesters. The only changes that might have followed were cosmetic, including (1) names of units and powers, and (2) precise "height" value. Other than those two things, these units were all final, to our satisfaction and to Craig's.

I have heard, but not seen, that some expressed a concern that these designs were still "beta." They were not. They were finished. Were they released as part of a finished AH product? No. But they were finished.

Thank you.
