I'm going with corporation.

My reasoning is that when people hear about Dark Potential and its post-apocalyptic characteristics, they will probably be expecting at least one faction that actually lives in the post-human environment. I think starting with the Reclaimers would only confuse newcomers who were expecting a more 'traditional' post-apocalyptic condition for the factions.

By picking corporation, you square off Humanity's post-apocalyptic children vs. the alien blight that is responsible for their very condition.

Not to mention that the corporation seems to be a tad more colorful than the Reclaimers at this point, and presentation is everything.



Also worth mentioning: after allowing DP to have a little gain in popularity and have more people familiar with the story/fluff, you allow the fan-base to get pumped with the thought of eventually fighting the X'lanthos with humanity at it's prime as the Reclaimers.

I voted for the Reclaimers and heres why.


Since the Corporation dosent have Dark energy weapons, we would have to wait until the third set of guys are made to use Dark energy weapons in the game. And who knows how long that will take.

I think its funny some people are saying the reclaimers need more cooking. They are both on the same level concept art wise. But the corporation doesn't even have a real name or background yet. I voted reclaimers. However, it would make sense for a later release as in the cavalry arrives to help the corporation. I just like the reclaimer look more.

i vote reclaimers because i dont get the point of the corporation. but every other factions motivations are solid

animals-survival
X'lanthos-finish the fight
reclaimers-take back the earth
bandits-surivie
scavengers-continue the programs orders
corporation-hey we used to work together! fight with you?

i dont think so. why on earth do they fight together because they worked together it seems more like they would become bandits aswell.

in short i vote reclaimers because i dont think the corporation should be in the game

EDIT plus what elmersnutz said. the X'lanthos dont use dark matter stuff i think they just use like plasma right? and dark matter is the point of the game so we want the dark matter heavy faction

and just like games workshops assault on black reach and privateer presses battle box

they are the iconic races!

X'lanthos are a MUST... glad that was established.

Thematically speaking, I think the most "basic" if you will conflict is alien vs. human, xeno vs. earthling, so the Corporation (which is having a TON of fan involvment and support) sets the best contrast to the X'lanthos.

Also... I kind of like how the Reclaimers have a bit more mystery to them. The more elite 3rd faction with the magick doohickies to BLOW YOUR MIND! lol

Well, based on the voting so far you almost can't go wrong.

By the way, it has been very interesting watching this come together. I am rooting for you, Matt. Best of luck with it!

Hey matt haven't posted on the forums in a while but have commented on some of the youtube videos. Really happy for you and all the donations you have received for this project. That's so awesome.

Anyway, I voted for the corporation. I agree with many others that the reclaimers are more interesting to me, personally, but that the corporation would be the smarter of the two to go with for the start. The corporation to me still seems like the dark potential standard army, the common face of humanity in Earth's post apocalyptic future. And yes, seeing this rugged group of fighters using any weapon they can their hands on to fight back a high tech X'lanthos strike team is definitely the more diverse option. (40k starter set - space marines and orks)

The Reclaimers for sure. They just have this fantastic feel...makes me want to buy them! Although the one faction not voted in this time should be the third set made, no question! I would think that 3 factions could released in the first run(especially if we reach the 70 thousand goal), why not just do all three at once? I know....I know, bigger picture, be patient(not my strong suit..heh heh).

For the record, you guys are a class act and have my utter respect. I found you randomly while looking for 40k videos on youtube a few months back. Since then I hit your site on a ratio of 12/1 compared to any other site. Carry on gentlemen!!!

I feel like I have to go with the Reclaimers, that's where my heart is.

Reclaimers seem like they would be a lot more visually interesting and they've always struck me as the most interesting faction here. Plus it might be good to get them out early since the probably make the best spring board for the fiction as they really don't know the current earth that well giving some strong POV character to experience the DP earth for the audience vs people who've grown up on earth and already know what it is like.

Really like the way the reclaimers concept are going but think the corporation are almost done in that sense, so the corporation for me.

Corporation, based entirely on the idea that there should be a human race in the starter set so that people who like the idea of killing aliens can do so without being an alien themselves.

Reclaimers, as they are the most logical enemy to the X'lanthos. Both remember the war and the natural adversaries should be the first two armies produced.
