Hahaha. 

Just couldn't help it. Had to throw Space Marine out there :)

 

But on that note a 40K version of this would be interesting. In other words:

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.



/Bele

 

As much as I would love this, I think it raises too many complications.  For instance, right now you can see every disk for this game on Board Game Geek.  If they were to release a template and 'blanks' for you to print your own disks, then you could by-pass purchasing the game entirely and just print off as many of any disk as you would like.

 

What you are talking about would be a truly open source game.  I love that idea, but I don't think it would ever really work with a for profit company.  Though I've personally thought about making an open source games with parts you could freely print on a 3-d printer.  You'd just download the schematics and the rules and go to town.  Wan't to make your own pieces and rules?  Go for it!!

 

But asking a company like FFG to do that is a little more than wishlisting, it's asking them to give up their revenue stream.

I've heard a couple people mention that they would like a 40k version of the game, and as much as I'd like to second that sentiment, I'm not sure that the Diskwars concept works as well in a game that is based more on ranged combat rather than melee.  

 

One of the strengths of Diskwars is that so little of the game is random, to make a 40k version you would be placing the emphasis of the game on the one part of the game that actually is random.

 

Don't get me wrong, I would totally own and play that game, if only because I love me some 40k.  That said, I think they would have to re-think some of the rules to make a truly good game.

I really wanna see them implement Goblins, Fanatics, Squigs, and the Doom Diver Catapult  for the Orcs. I also really wanna see Dwarves, Skaven, and lastly implement more story driven scenarios.

Maybe a Dexterity element for ranged combat will be the Random Factor perhaps?

Fanatics and Squigs would be awesome. Story driven scenarios? Count me in. Maybe some campaign expansion.

I think the ideas for WHFB are fantastic. Everytime someone offers an idea I think it is great. and if you are not keeping up with the mini game, i dont play but always like to see what comes out, the dwarves just got a Gyrocopter...that will be fun in this game for sure. 

 

I do not think this game would work so well in a 40k setting. What I really want to see FFG do for 40k is use the co-op LCG format they decided not to use for Star Wars for 40k. that would be super awesome.

 

see that FFG! I am a genius! Make my game...now!  ;)

I think it would be cool for some of the chaos/crazy goblin units is they had different stats/different abilities on either side of their disk. I think that could work well for goblins and add to the flavor of crazy goblin wackyness and it could work for some of the more unpredictable chaos units.

I think that might kinda work for mages overall aswell. Depending on side mage would have different spell. ( Would add a bit of variable and usability of mages ) For example . Damage spell (like it is now) and other side frost spell that slows enemy unit. That could also depend on race of mage. For example Empire mage could have firewall on one side ( puts a wall of fire terrain on medium range that has dangerous on it ) :) Oh so many ideas :)

That is a brilliant Idea. I would also like a Snotling Pump wagon to have a random value for movement (perhaps 1D6 = number of flips) if they ever implement one.

The format of this game will give us super awesome expansions imo.  The game is made up of disks and tokens so it'll be easy to produce really cool expansions ranging from armies to terrain packs.

 

Damn i'm glad I bought this game!

As I recall from some of your other posts, you weren't so sure about this game to begin with.  

 

So happy you have come to the dark side!  Hope you get as much fun out of it as I have.

Bretonnia oh yes!

Dwarves please for me! And Undeads, Skavens and Lizardmen!

 

I'm sure we'll see some of those soon.

 

But i'm more curious of what release format FFG will take for Diskwars.  Monthly and regular or some Big box expansions twice a year.  Can't wait to see what FFg has planned for Diskwars.

I don't think it will be that fast.  Don't get me wrong, I wish it was, but they haven't announced anything yet.  This came out in January I believe, so if we were going to get an expansion in March, I'm sure we would have heard about it by now.  So I'm hoping for quarterly.  So sometime in April, May, or June.  Of course sooner would be better.

 

Though, I assume Diskwars was a bit of a gamble.  I mean, it is a very different type of game.  It wouldn't surprise me if they wait to see how sales do before committing to regular expansions.

 

Anyone have any idea how sales have been?  I know that it's been on The Hotness list on BGG since it hit stores.  Also it's ranked 9 currently out of Customizable games.  But there aren't a lot of scores for it.  So I worry that it's very popular with a very small fan base.  That could be bad for us and any future expansions.  Though I would expect the game to gain popularity with a Dwarves release.  So many people love Dwarves.

i would like to see tokens for magical artifacts/weapons/banners to be able to choose from a set of magical artifacts/wpns/banner cards (lets say one for one regiment) to mark that a disk is outfitted with it, would fit the idea of the normal warhammer and would be easy to use with cards&tokens ... and of yourse more fun and more variety :DD
