    I still don't understand people complaining about this not being pre-painted. If you want to pay a ton extra for pre-painted, take it to someone who paints minis. You will spend less than you would if FFG painted it, it will look better, and the people who want to paint thier own don't have to spend so much. It's the definition of a win/win situation.

    My bad. Made the post in a hurry to lunch and I dont think well in an empty stomach. I meant Armada and the "negative" thing about that is that it will make one to buy several items of the same to be competitive.

    Heck, I'm going to play mine unpainted out of the box. I just want to play it. Painting can come from downtime between games.

    Completely agree with pancakeonions (except putting onions on a pancake but that's for another forum  ). The whole fact of dials enables a great strategic depth, instead of the brainless run for clash you see in the large competitor game.
    I was also impressed by the recent article on victory points and just love the little things like having the lowest point army get some initiative (instead of rolling for it, simple but elegant rule) and choose either the deployment or the mission (which is a good natural balance)

    As a campaign fan, I'm pretty comfortable with getting expansions for as long as I'm interested.  I can always tune out if I ever get bored of it, and a constant stream of minis isn't a bad thing- I can use the ones I like, and the rest can just come in when they're starting groups or reserved.  Like, I'm already never really planning on using the Ugnaughts again as open groups or Greedo as a villain, but I'm still glad to have them.
     
    Though I get how competitive skirmish might want to keep the status quo in its golden age.

    Kentares reacted to Mep in Has FFG lost their license for Imperial Assault?   
    Hasbro sells so much plastic star wars stuff their license is pretty safe. Who else will make all those toys? So if they were to really defend that license they could say no Imperial Assault or x-wing or anything at all. Instead, it is yes, you can make IA and sell it pretty much every where you want, except on your own website. Yeah, it is petty and weird when you think about it. It makes far more sense for Hasbro to not want that stuff on Amazon and other big ecommerce sites. FFG's direct sales compared to those other sites is so small, who cares.
     
    Ultimately it is now Disney's choice who makes what and sells where.

    X-Wing was successful for a few years with only two factions, Armada still only has two.

    People said the same thing about Armada, there were daily posts about how FFG had abandoned Armada and the game was doomed to lack of new models... Yet it's still going strong. So the notion that a game has to have multiple factions and lots of options at release is demonstratively false.

    Appologizing in advance for the necro, but this thread contains some really good info for people just getting interested in this game due to the new news articles. It also answers some questions I've seen asked in new threads. Thanks to Nalim and Oloh for collecting all of the screen shots in one place, and to KrisSherriff for the great videos.

    You said that miniature war gamers have "a short attention span" or at least, you did. The short attention span isn't remotely accurate at all. Miniature war gamers keep interest in a game regardless of "New" content. Look at Daemon/Chaos players for 40k. They went how many years before they got a new rule book? Their first rule book was in 4th. They didn't get anything new until 7th edition. However, people still played with Chaos Daemon armies, and tried to make them work. Just about every faction in that game goes a minimum of 4-5 years before they get revamped rules and the like. And longer than that before they actually get new units, or see existing ones removed from play. Sisters of Battle is still using pewter figurines, which GW moved away from a while ago, and they are no plans for long term plastic models in that factions' future. People still play the Sisters of Battle. 

    Battletech was one faction (The Inner Sphere) for years, and while you had the 5 great houses, for the most part you didn't have much variety in what mechs were on the field regardless of faction. Then the Clans came years down the road with new models and rules and someone other than the Inner Sphere to fight. Flames of War is technically two factions, any WW 2 Mini game is two factions, and few ever see a Western Front Russian faction, Africa Campaign, or Pacific Theater for years in either factions, rules, or models. So your "You need multiple factions otherwise people will lose interest and move on" is wrong on many levels. Just because you might lose interest, it does not mean that anyone else will. 
     
    You are correct that Runewars Minis needs a robust release schedule to stay alive, but given that there is an increasing probability that the game won't be out until after Adepticon, and the presence there will be from FFG owned and controlled kits, rather than players bringing their own, announcing the Elves before they even have the core sets available is a poor mistake, because it will alienate people who will view it as greed, and attempting to fund something that might not see support, because of the issues with GW IPs getting support. 

    My guess is that when this is On the Boat or about to start Shipping is when we will see the individual blisters and the known expansion models announced, and after that, the next faction or two. The Latari Elves and maybe a fourth faction are probably a Q4 release date, given that people more in the know of the Runewars setting seem to think that the Elves all but guaranteed and the Chaos equivalent is the most likely culprit for a 4th faction.

    Yeah, I mean, I think Rogue One might be a possibility.  Hey, we might all be wrong, and even get an R1 themed smallbox this summer when the film is still fresh, saving Endor/DSII for next winter's Big Box.  You never know.
