No, those were never revealed, so we can't say anything about them.
Thank you for letting me know! Appreciate these efforts

Go to the "AoA units, classic style (incl. Revna and Volarak templates)" thread in the AoA section of the customs forum. It has the Vorid Glide Strikers Card from Anitar.

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.

Those are super awesome; I was wondering if those were considered the "release-ready" concept that @Dad_Scaper was talking about. Either way I'd love to proxy any version we have permission for

ANNOUNCEMENT INCOMING RIGHT HERE PAY ATTENTION FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE PUT DOWN YOUR COFFEE THIS IS SERIOUS AND I MEAN SERIOUS


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.

I think we can look at the AoA units the same way we do Samuel Brown, and that Sam already set a precedent for them. They are official units produced by Hasbro/AH, and they released a card only with no mini, its pretty much the exact same situation.

Re: Heroscape: Age of Annihilation is here! Back it on Hasla

They are very, very similar. Not quite the same, but close. As I see it.

Indeed, they were both offered from Hasbro essentially as gestures to the community. Many of these AoA units were released on the day before the campaign ended, at a time when they surely saw the writing on the wall.

Does those cards have been tested with VC or plan to be tested/tweaked by VC ?

I don’t think VC is in the business of changing official cards, so I wouldn’t expect to see that. If there are any combination issues, I think VC would tweak on their end (but these issues seem hypothetical only).

I know for relatively sure that official testers do not test with customs.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Heroscape: Age of Annihilation is here! Back it on Hasla

In my view, AoA units have a status that parallels those of C3V/SoV. They are a custom, but a custom that's beyond well-vetted and will probably see some tournament approval. I'd bet on Louisville allowing their use for certain events

We are discussing how to address this issue. Expect an announcement soon.

Excellent question, without an obvious or easy answer.

When designing AoA, we did not test with the C3V/SoV content.

I was wondering if on the end with the arrival of other VCs peoples, some tests have been run not officially


I hope to see a clear status of VC about them and their inclusion or not in future design too. With update of AoA cards if needed. And if it's an update of existing C3V/SoV. I think it should open the door of updating classic scape/C3V/Sov/AoA cards when needed, to reword stuff or tweak some values with the visibility of years of playing
