Hey Polychrome Dog!
I saw the bit on FB about the new website and wandered over and read through the background section. Glad to finally understand the universe this inhabits. Looking forward to seeing something like perhaps a developer diary talking about the minis and the designs choices and why for them in the future. When can we expect rules?

Also, cheers on probably the LONGEST timespan from signup to first post. You should get an award :D

I did a bunch of infantry sculpts for this game, and their crowdfunder deserves to do well.

^i remember that way back in the mists of time^

They looked great and I was pretty excited about things but then AOT kinda dropped off the radar for a few years. Until the new website I just figured they pulled a polyversal.

Transparency is the name of the game here. I am quite curious about how they will handle dialogue using communities like this.

Artwork looks great!

Hey chaps,
@jimmyzimms yes it's been a while since I registered ;D A couple of the chaps who are our principle playtesters recommended I joined when we started the project but as you rightly pointed out its been a while since we started this, the was essentially down to me leaving the country to follow my wife who works overseas, so been traveling quite a bit which caused a lack of focus, but we have got here in the end.
I'm not sure if we'll have a developers diary, but I can certainly answer any questions that you may have, I'm John Robertson the creative director and one of the concept designers, along with Wayne England. But we will certainly have a workbench up soon on the site so you can see WIP of various aspects of the game and when the KS starts we'll have daily updates as to the progress as we have a lot of stretch stuff in the pipe that we've started developing now.
Rules wise we're gonna stick up a set very shortly along with armylists so folk can get stuck in and started asking awkward questions :o

Thanks for the kind words Ben much appreciated fella ;)

@ Nitpick well open to any sort of discussion here, in fact our playtesters are regulars here and I am sure they'll chime in at some point, they identified this a the place to be. I myself started way back in the 70s with WRG WWII 1/300th scale Heroics and Ross were the company of choice then, well until we found GHQ ;D
I love the scale fro me it offers so many more tactical choices than 28mm games, oddly I've produced many of those but this game is very close to my heart so hopefully that'll come over in the product.

@Craigm999 yes its set in the Draconis Alba Galaxy, which started with Void in 2000, and was developed further in 2004 to the present in the Urban War game. We've set the timeline back a few hundred years before First Contact with the alien Koralon and the Iskandrians so that we could focus on 4 factions. That is not to say that the timeline will not advance as the product line rolls out as the first incarnation of Iskander and the contact with the Koralon are just around the corner.
And thanks for the kind words on the art, much appreciated :)

Anyway chaps much obliged for your replies and interest, we'll be previewing the Junker vehicles last thing today, these will be the digital versions in a viewer called SketchFab which will allow you to orientate the model to give you a good impression of what it looks like.

Look forward to chatting to you folks more and I'll certainly give you a heads up once we have rules to peruse, cheers lads

Hi!

I've seen some of the concepts on Facebook, they're looking mighty fine from where I'm standing! ;)

More 6mm is always good. :)

Thanks guys for the positive words ;)
You can see all the Junker concept art here:
http://www.ageoftyrants.com/index.php/g ... rk/junkers

and you can have a look at all the 3D renders here in SketchFab, which is a funky browser that allows you to manipulate the model yourself:

More stuff later today and hopefully we'll have rules and armylists up next week.

@jimmyzimms I've had a think about what you said about developer notes and that might be something we'll do and put up on a blog on the site, I'll keep you posted on that.
