Welcome back, gamers!

Weíve been listening to a lot of the feedback over the past few weeks regarding the HeroScape: Age of Annihilation, Vanguard Edition Has Lab campaign and as youíre aware, weíve already made a number of changes to the Has Lab project page to help showcase this incredible game in a way that it deserves.

However, we also recognize that there are some elements of the product itself that fans held differing opinions over. One of those elements was the color of the miniatures as shown on the Has Lab page. Now, as a reminder our team is still working hard to make everything you see as best as it possibly can be. To that end, our design team went back and took another look at the colors of the figures and decided some adjustments were in order. While these colors are not necessarily final, we do think they more closely represent our teamís intentions for the finished product. Take a look below!



As many folks are aware, each color represents the alignment a figure or squad shows towards a particular Valkyrie General. For example, a vibrant, almost blood red represents figures that show allegiance to the villainous Utgar while the more heroic Jandar commands figures formed in a clean, crisp blue.

Youíll also notice some updates from what is shown on the Has Lab page Ė a couple colors, notably Volarakís light green, have been toned down from the brighter shade previously shown. And Revna has undergone a significant change, moving from a bright orange to what we feel is a more appropriate bone color.

Finally, you might even spy that one figure has seemingly had a change of heart and has switched their alliance! We know there are some Ullar fans out there who were saddened that their favorite Valkyrie General was not as well represented in the Vanguard Edition as other generals, so our team is rethinking some of the Dryan Lifeborne Magi to see if they truly belong as Volarak units, or if Ullar is a better fit. Again, remember that nothing is final so more allegiances may change or change back! That said, our team hopes to make sure each Valkyrie isnít left wanting.

For those who are interested in painting these figures, a simple base coat of your preferred color should help you get started no matter the color of the plastic so that you are able to achieve the desired results on each and every model. Weíre especially excited to see what our fans may come up with! Just note that paint, paint brushes, and all other painting equipment is not included.

What do you think of these colors? Sound off with your feedback in all our usual social places, and if you havenít yet backed the HeroScape: Age of Annihilation, Vanguard Edition Has Lab campaign, we hope you take another look at the page with these updates in mind. We still have more updates to come in the future, so make sure to check back often!

The Battle of all Time rages onÖ will you take up arms?

Iím going to rewrite, so we can get some units in Ullarís camp.

I'm imagining her with a bone-white shroud and an orange skull mask (because obviously she's gotta be dressed like her icon).
Yah, I really think of her as someone that almost has fits of rage. Quiet and solemn one minute and slitting someone throats almost randomly the next.

There is an awesome play through video coming. Exciting to watch and even more fun to watch the players learn the game and get into it as the battle raged on.
Any (disclosable) idea which day this week we'll be getting that? And will we also get the full cards, like last time?
Yeah. Cards are ready. Weds or Thursday.

No word (yet) on when/whether we'll get the cards from that one (Kayne, Tuck, Glide Strikers, and Borealis). The one we're about to get seems to instead be the one involving "cooler" people.

DS insisted on reposting this insight, so I'm re-reposting it.

I was working on that concept and trying to come up with a good name for it. "Pressgang" didn't seem right, because that was used to add poor folks to the *navies*, and not to pirate crews.

So I did some research, to figure out how pirate captains actually added crew to their ships. It turned out, the answer was as old as recorded history: they paid them. Sailors wanted to be pirates because it was the best way to make a living on the open seas.

Hence the power name: Hire Crew.

I know it changed about 8 times based on the depth of the sculpts. Most recent one was 24x12x6.75 but that might be too small now.

It’s been a game of Tetris to get everyone into the vac-form trays, so the dimensions keep adjusting.
Inches, right?
Yes

The cards, for reference:



The video sounds as though it was also meant to show Tuck Harrigan's card, but it didn't. These cards have not yet been added to the compendium.


...And with that, we've seen every last one of the Dawn Raiders.

The cards by themselves... Tuck Harrigan included!








On the topic of EJ 1-M:

I am glad Scytale is here for me to give him credit. He was instrumental in getting this design right, with feedback that made it possible to deliver my vision.


People familiar with my writings about design will know I write about the triangle of design. The mini must match the mechanics, the mechanics must match the theme, and the theme must match the mini. For a design to really shine, though, there is a way to level up. That is, does the unit actually play on the board like the theme would indicate. And that was the challenging part of this design. That level up.

A video about the game, which should soon be followed up by one showing the cards of Oberon and the Ordo Borealis.

Also, quotes. Always quotes.

Well Myth, if you REALLY want to have something to debate. Let’s talk about what Jandar and Utgar might look like after unspoken years of accessing the mystical energies of the Wellsprings?



I would also encourage everyone to generate their names in the lyrical written language of the Kyrie? Or did you all forget about it?

There is a very nerdy, super deep brand bible concept around Jandar and Odin being the same thing however.
Humans can do such interesting stuff when they witness things they don’t understand…
You actually should be able to comp them in every major civilization.

No follow-up video. Instead, @Battlebrow got him to just send us photos of the cards. Have some bears.

No Onshu, unfortunately... but look at what we DO have!

The Compendium has been updated with some nice clean pictures of the most recent new Army Cards (note that the Admiral's cost has decreased)...
Spoiler Alert!

...and, more importantly, a whole bunch of Dryans!
