when?

Postby bobkian » Tue Jun 02, 2009 9:32 am

just wondering when we can expect the rules to come out, a month, a year, a millennium?
just roughly guess that would help.

The Beta Rules are available now. As for the finished product, the only answer I can give is "when it's ready".

well that doesn't help much.
do you have any idea how much the rules will cost

also the beta rules, the factions could I start converting an army and then not have to redo it completely when its updated. basicly how much different will the factions be once finished?

Every faction could be completly remade, so I wouldn´t start making minis. :mrgreen:

We are at the beginning stages, anything could happen/change/get dropped/get added... etc. We won't have costs set until we know what it costs us to produce the different aspects of the game.

In reality, we've only been developing this game for about a month, of most of that has simply been rules, and fluff discussion. It'll be a looong time before we have all of the writing, testing, artwork, and miniatures created, not to mention time for production. Fully developing a game takes thousands of man-hours.

I'm going to pretend like you didn't just tell us to get to work, as if we aren't working our butts off already. >.<

This isn't our job... at least for some of us. We work on it when we can.
Sometimes I play all the Elves. Sometimes I play Eldar or IG. But between school and warhammer, how's a fella supposed to eat?

Sorry but, last I checked, you don't work at MWG :P

This IS our job ;)

And it is still going to take a REALLY long time.

I believe its written in the "big book of everything," under the proper sportsmanship section two-six-eight, that I am to concede to you this victory.

Congratulations, you got me!

It only took me about 5 hours to write up the rules and everything for a game i made which seems to be at about the same stage as yours is now... only, its much less balanced...

i could link you to it if you're interested.
