Reclaimers or Corporation?

Post by miniwargaming » Mon Apr 16, 2012 10:50 am

This Poll Is Over - Thanks For Your Votes

Relcaimers: 43% (139 votes)
Corporation: 56% (183 votes)

The two starter sets will be X'Lanthos and Corporation

---------------------------------------

For the first two starter sets I said we would be doing the X'Lanthos and the Reclaimers.

However, I got a lot of people saying they would rather have the Corporation done before the Reclaimers.

So, now is your chance to vote! Use the poll above to tell me what you prefer. I know some of you would prefer another faction altogether, but that is not an option at this point.

I'm voting corporation at this time based purely on the concept art that has come out up to this time. It seems like reclaimers need more time in the cooker. I know that what we see doesn't necessarily reflect the progress on each of the races behind the scenes but its all the information I have to go on.

Also, I don't think both of the starter races should be "elite" factions (high power low model count). I don't know if X'lanthos are actually such an army, but it is the perception I have gleaned from the forums. The corporation seems like it would add more variety at day 1.

I think corporation, cause they seem more "human" than the reclaimers. people can relate more to them then people in robot suits :P

My vote is for Corporation.

If the 14 pages of suggested Corporation names, logos and back stories are any indication, I would say you've already generated a lot of interest in the Corporation. Regardless of what direction you take the Corporation, I think people (myself included) are going to want to see them as a "finished product" per se, as soon as they can.

I would prefer that the Reclaimers be the second box faction and I think it is not impossible for them to get to the point where they will be ready to go. That being said, I must agree with what I've seen so far - the Corporation seems to be at a much better point for going into production tout suite.

As far as which I would prefer if all else were equal, well, here's my breakdown of the pros and cons:

Reclaimers - Pro: As the most high-tech human faction and the main combatants against the X'lanthos, they are a narrative natural pair with the alien invaders. They have the most reason and opportunity to fight. Their "foreign" perspective on the Earth is going to create a lot of opportunities to show off the setting right from the word "go."

Reclaimers - Cons: As a scientific, high tech faction, their in-game unit numbers are likely to be lower simply because high tech tends to equal lower model counts for balance purposes in points. From an aesthetic perspective, bringing in the Reclaimers later on allows you to appeal to a wider range of buyers as there will be one "fancy" faction with lots of technological gubbins, plastics, and metal and then one "regular" faction which can have more in the way of cloth and similar materials. Otherwise, it'll be human space suits versus alien body armour and all a bit the same.

Corporation - Pros: Earth based human perspective, more access to the daily life on Earth for narrative, fluff, etc purposes, and style is going to be distinctly human and accessible. Less risk of diminishing returns from "awesome" out-there designs. More reason to have terrestrial conflict also.

Corporation - Cons: The corporation might be better suited to bring out with the Animals or Bandits when they get ready to move as a sort of natural pair.

In the end, my vote goes to Reclaimers but I won't be sad if Corporation wins.

I'm voting purely on the basis of some of the forum fanfiction, which has me really interested in the reclaimers. ^_^ But I'd be ok with either, it's a close fight.

Its going to be close. Already some rivalry between the 2 factions.

Even tho i love the Reclaimers i voted Corporation due to thinking they are more ready than the Corporation. :wink: Won't mind if Reclaimers win tho.

As a side note lol still tied... Matt will not be happy if by the end it's still a tie :D

Corporation, they seem more 'human' and down to earth, and i see them as the main backbone of the game kind of like imperial guard and the reclaimers are space marines. the reclaimers should be the 2nd set you do.
maybe check out my corporation logo and fluff submission? its on page 14 of the thread :) thanks

I just want the Corporation, as that's definitely going to be the most fun to paint...and my second faction of choice all around (First being the scavengers...but that's neither here nor there)
