GODSLAYER NEWS UPDATE

WEBSITE
Due to several hacks, we decided to rebuild the site on a more stable platform. the basic site should be up in a couple of days.

The website will also include:
Free download starterbox cards in German will be on the website in a few days.
Free download scenarios pack in German will be on the website in a few days.

Veteran cards - this will be a free download in English and German. This is a new profile card for each of the starterbox units. This card does not replce the existing card, instead, it represents the starterbox unit as a veteran unit. That means +1 MEL and +1 LEAD.



WAVE 2 AND BATTLEBOX KICKSTARTER

Right now the following is already sculpted and ready to go:

- ALL items for the Battlebox, including the revised resin Ursapine and resin Cerberos and new Mongrels.
- The wave-2 Mortan starterbox
- The Amazon Peltasts for the Halodynes starter
- The Goreguard for the Banebrood starter
- Wyldfolk starterbox is almost finished
- Troglodytes starterbox is well in progress.

Next is Nordgaard wave-2 starter plus the characters and warlord for Halodynes and Banebrood.


PLAYTESTING
We need more active playtesters. right now most cards are about 95% perfect, but for balance and finding potential last issues we still need all models tested more. If you are interested, please email me at:
David@megalith-games.com



NEW RELEASES
Nemesis pack-1 Kydoime and the Chimera was released.

The Ursapine will be released any day, but right now it is stuck in customs (it gets produced in Switzerland).

Revised Mortan Scorpio with new crew - Packaging is now sent to the printer and models are being cast. Release very soon.

Skulleaters - box is at the printer and minis are being cast. Release in about 3 weeks.

Additional 2 Fjell Warrior troopers - being cast for unboxed pre-release.
Additional 2 Hoplite troopers - being cast for unboxed pre-release.
Additional 2 Ironhide Brutes - being cast for unboxed pre-release.

New Wyldfolk starterbox - being painted
New Maldire Mongrels - on Giovannis desk

Wave-2 minis are also landing on Giovanni's desk gradually.



ARMY DEALS
Army deals are coming!

There will initially be a Large Warband Deal followed by a Small Warband deal.

They will be followed by subfaction deals.

The graphics are almost finished for all the deals, and out-of-stock minis are being cast.



WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING?

Animal cards - I am working on Godslayer Animals. This will also be profile cards for free download.
These cards will be released together with a set of 10 scenarios, which will include a 3 player and a solo-player scenario. Obviously people will need to proxy these because we are not making animal minis at this time.
However, this will be a fun addition to play with from time to time. It will be something like 35-40 cards. They can be played against regular warbands or against each other or in some special scenario combinations.

Advertising - our first advertisement for Godslayer will appear in the Wargames Illustrated October edition.
If anyone has suggestions for other magazines, forums and blogs to use, please let me know.

Free Shipping - as previously mentioned,all webstore orders will benefit from free shipping within Europe (including UK). Please try to order multiple items so that we can keep this up.

Card Decks - We have begun revising all cards for printing. Most cards have some technical formatting issues that need to be fixed. Its several hundred cards, but we have begun the process of fixing the formatting, then these will be printed as faction decks.
They will contain:
Each model/unit's max deployment for 499 point games
All spell and item cards several times
A handful of blank tactic and action token cards.
A few new additional item cards such as new sword-pairs for the Pendragon and some others.

The new item cards will be there to offer new options for items that are really limited (some cards have only 3 items) and it will address a couple of balance issues (for example the Pendragon who is a little underperforming for his points).

The framework of the new website is up now, so at least people can order things again.
There are still lots of tweaks to be done and stuff to be added over the next few days.

That's the news we were looking for David, thank you! There is plenty of stuff incoming, we'll be ready to go Big Grin

Does the veteran profile comes with a higher unit cost in total? Or we'll have just to add the " veteran status" cost?

So the new Cerberos is on it's way! Awesome, that will do for the Halodynes Smile

Playtesting: The italian community I'm creating is young and they barely know the rules. I was teaching them how to play and stuff, but the end of this month ( and our second event) will be the final test. If everything is ok as I expect, from September we'll bel playtesting every week!

Revised Scorpio? Ruling too or just the miniature?

Is it possible to have a little preview of the content of the new Starter box? Maybe some artworks will suffice!

I'm waiting for my Lord of Decay from some time, good news that is being recast! Tongue

Animals are a great way to change the type of game we all do, that's nice and for the moment there is plenty of different miniatures on the market, so for me there is no need, also printed markers will do for now

The new Cerberos is just a resin version of the current one, but a re-sculpt is planned for the near future.

The new Veteran cards will be completely new cards with correct point cost listed on them. The Veteran units are also smaller and limited to 1 unit only. they will be available fro free download and also will be in the faction card decks eventually.

The cards will be up real soon.

The Scorpio has new crew minis; the machine itself is unchanged.

Nice to read the new Cerberos will be in resin. The Metal one is too unbalanced and heavy for this pose.

Uh Veteran Cards ...tell me more Smile

The Animal Cards sounds interesting.

Excellent news all around. Looking forward to the resculpted Cerberos in the future. Though the current one is kinda cute.
