Somebody on BGG asked about whether we'd like to see more disks for existing armies or new armies first in the expansions.  I decided to put this here where FFG can see it, because I have a wishlist... ;)

 

I would love to see 'Campaign Expansions'.  Boxes that contain an entire new army with slightly more disks than the starters in the core box, new disks for the starter armies to bring them in line, and a specific setting with terrain and new cards to support it.  

 

For instance you could do a Lustrian campaign with Lizardmen as the new army, some new terrain that would reflect the jungles of Lustria, some new pieces for the other armies themed on a Lustrian campaign, maybe a book with scenarios, and some special rules for a campaign set in Lustria and of course new command and perhaps deployment cards.

 

What do you think?

 

I'm guessing with all that I'm asking that these expansions probably wouldn't be cheap, but they could be a lot of fun.

I like this idea a lot.  The other thing they could do is always box some extra terrain pieces and scenario cards and do little terrain expansions, I think that'd be cool.  I'd love to see rules for multi-game campaigns too, but I'm probably dreaming.

I hope it has even 1/2 as many expansions as Warhammer Invasion had.  That would be great!

I think that is a good idea for some of the future deluxe expansions, but for the first one I would like to see the inclusion of two new armies. I would like a series of small expansions that would expand the current races (and maybe introduce some mercenaries) at first.

I don't think you have much to worry about with Dwarves.  If they add any armies at all, you will definitely see Dwarves and most likely Dark Elves.  After that I'm sure that the armies we saw in Invasion would be next on the list.

 

However, my hopes of seeing a Tomb Kings army are somewhat less likely.  It's part of the reason I think a campaign based expansion system would rock.  Because Khemri would be an awesome place for a campaign about ancient artifacts, and the terrain would be awesome.  Of course, Lustria and Sylvania would also kick some butt.

Dwarves may add some underground gameplay / mechanism. Could be nice to reinforce a few disks in tunnels or at mines entrances !

i really like the idea of mini campaign with new army attached i think that is pretty sweet. even if FFG does these as the big box expansions and smaller releases for army expansion

Personally i would love to see first expansions include new terrain, new quests and command cards and few disks that are same as in starter box. Why? Couse i would love to be able to create regiments with three black orcs or maiden guard without buying 3 starter boxes. If You know what i mean ... :)

 

When it comes to new armies i probably would go for Skavens and Bretonia or Dwarves. I'm sick of dark elves and i think skavens would create much more havoc on battlefields of Old World.

I would love to see an ogre army. Just because people are not all over it in WHFB (then again, people are not all over that game anyway) does not mean it wouldn't be awesome in Warhammer pogs. Every army would be awesome to see in this capacity. I think they should do an expansion called "Size Matters" and it should have Ogres and Dwarves.

Just recovered from laughing... thank you sir, that just made my day... and is an excellent idea by the way.

Ogres could be fun.  I suppose they could use Noblars for the small disks, but I'd rather see an army made entirely of medium and large disks.

Not so much an expansion-wish as a customer-service:

 

I'd like a blank disk-template to be added to the website, so that players can design (and print) their own disks (if you want to add homemade units to your game, add fan-made armies (Nippon etc.) or even add regional variants of certain units.

Not trying to be a jerk or anything, but I don't think there is any way that this happens.  They do want to make money on this game.

 

At any rate, wait long enough and someone will put together graphics packages to do this anyway.

Aye, I can see how that could be an issue.

However, I think it could be a good idea for FFG nonetheless.
The more "open-ended" approach has shown itself to be a quote profitable business-model in the past, as a less restrictive environment has a way of drawing in more players - and keeping them hooked.

Secondly, a template like this could be linked to an ordering service where players could order sheets of disks of their own design, much like when you go to a website, upload your own photos and have a personalized calendar or whatever designed from that.

That would/could bring about revenue for FFG - and would give players the "real deal", and not just simple printouts glued to cardboard.
