"Just Keep Swimming..."

Sorry for the long hiatus in posting. But I'm kind of stuck in the boring phase of development. Doing little stuff here and there that adds up to a lot, but which doesn't easily lend itself to a full post.

So what have I been doing?

The Typo Nobody Noticed

I've been too busy with a variety of different things, some game related, some not, to post much lately. But I did want to thank the recent commenter to an old post (can't find it now) who spotted a prominent typo that none of us even noticed for a couple of years. It seems I had left the second "D" out of "Independent" on the game's cover image.

Anyway... Fixed.

There Are Now Explicit Road Rules

I've been busy doing a once-over on the existing rules, mostly to change all the tests from D6 to D10-based ones, as well as stripping out the "section" rules for un-openable buildings. Since they'll all just be impassible terrain now. I've also been making sure all the rules numbers are properly ordered.

But all that editing did free up a bit of space to explicitly describe how Roads and Rivers interact with Area Terrain. It's not a huge thing, but it does clear up something that would have certainly prompted questions about how exactly they interact.

Welcome to WyrmGaming

Well, it's official... As of last Monday we're a company now. Which is something that needed to happen before we formally release any kind of alpha rulebook, which we'll be doing by the end of the summer.

New Quick Reference Guide & Test Units

I accidentally posted these over to The Back 40K, but here they are on the proper blog for posterity. :)

Question: Do We Even Need Closed-Building Rules?

Some 3D Printed Building Parts, with a Games Workshop™ Space Marine Added For Scale.
In case anyone reading this doesn't also follow my postings on The Back 40K, I've gone and bought a 3D printer. Well, two actually. Though the nicer high-detail one hasn't gotten here yet.

But as I'm getting the hang of printing with the lower-res filament printer, I'm doing what a lot of us probably will be doing a lot of over the next couple of years. Which is printing up some really nice buildings that I bought the 3D files for online. Buildings which, unusually for 40K, have removable roofs, and in some cases even working doors.

Table Setup & Mission Rules: Part 6

After all that talk about Obstacles, Barricades, and Entanglements, here's the rules on when you actually get to use them.

Table Setup & Mission Rules: Part 5 (Revised)

While working on the next section, I got very tired of typing "Cover Fortification" and "Entanglement Fortification" over and over again.

So now they're called "Barricades" and "Entanglements", which I think is much easier on the eyes.

I also had forgotten to mention that both types of Fortification could be placed across roads, or touching other terrain pieces. So I added that in and enhanced the explanation for why Entanglements aren't easier to destroy than Barricades.

Table Setup & Mission Rules: Part 5

Mom's out of the hospital, and the house guests have departed, so I've finally gotten a quiet afternoon to write. This should finish up the rules on Fortifications. Next up is the Mission Types, which will determine, among other things, what combination of Obstacles/Fortifications each side will get to use in a game.

Table Setup & Mission Rules: Part 4

Well, it's been a rough week (had to hospitalize my Mom, which is ongoing), but here's the next two pages of setup/mission rules. These cover player-placed obstacles, and start the introduction of player-placed fortifications. The general idea being that after you set up your major terrain pieces, you'll roll your mission, and then be able to set up some additional scenery. Whether you get to set up Obstacles, Fortifications, or both, will depend on the mission type. We'll cover that in the next couple of pages.
