Is ALL the Diskwars art necro'd from Invasion?

Recommended Posts

If you don't know what I'm talking about: 

 

The Diskwars Disk

& The Invasion Card

Are we offering a 10% off coupon and tossing in a circle slicer for people who bought 'Path of the Zealot'? Jokes aside now, I'm all for recycled art as it fits intimately with the game and makes production MUCH quicker and lets the product arrive at my door much sooner. However I'm a little concerned that I'm recognizing a little bit TOO much and it spoils my expectations.  I want to open a box and be excited at what I see, but if I open a diskwars box to find my entire orc army is chainmailed together from the orc army in a game I've already played.. I could see a few people up in arms about that.

 

More importantly I'm wondering that if units are picked just because they have art from invasion does that mean our factions are already set in stone? Because if so then we already know off the back no matter how well the game does - we won't be seeing Bretonnia, Tomb Kings, Ogre Kingdoms or Chaos Dwarves (Not that I was seriously thinking they'd be in anyhow, because.. yeah.)  

Regardless, I really hope this isn't the case I want to be excited by the prospect of having the entire diverse universe in this game in some form or another and if my idea is correct I hope that FFG will put the extra effort into making these armies from scratch.  If not, I'm still satisfied with 10 races - I suppose.

FFG recycles art all the time. Just look at all of their Cthulhu offerings. Pun intended.

It doesn't bother me. By and large it's good art, and this was a risky game. If it saves them some cash and I get more expansions because they are cheaper to produce, then count me as happy. If the game does well enough, we may still see new armies and art work.

I suspect your second point will only be resolved when FFG knows the answer to the profitability question.

If the game is profitable, then it will continue to grow and expand. At some point that will likely require new art and units, if not, it will stop and we'll be left with whatever is there.

So, tell you're friends.

I'm telling everyone, but they seem content to borrow my stuff or just come over to my house to get their fix.  Maybe I should stop loaning it out and say no more until they buy their own sets :D

 

The borrowed art doesn't really bother me; in a way, it makes me feel connected to past battles from the LCG and gives me the illusion of being immersed in the universe more completely.  It's like a continuation of past struggles!

I've been giving it out for birthdays. ;)
