  I wish, I wish, I wish. Tue, 15 July 2008 23:38
I've seen many posts in this forum where contributors detail their wishes for the next BattleLore expansion and I'm not going to be left out.

This is for the future as it would need a few more additions to the range of current races, monsters and weapons before it would make a worthwhile project.

I play Flames of War and last year or so they produced a beautiful hardback version of their rules. I would dearly love to see the same done with BattleLore and Memoir'44 for that matter. I have expended so much time, money and effort on this system (painting and basing the miniatures etc.) that I feel this volume would be the crowning glory.

I would love to hear what all of you think.

Kindest regards,

Lovely idea but I have a feeling you won't see a hardback version of the rules until the system is 'complete'.

As someone who is still painting his way through a sea of plastic, I'd like to see painted minis Smile

btw - saw pics of your minis on BGG - looks good !

If memory serves, before we will see other races, I think the powers to be at DoW will flesh out the rules for dwarves and goblins first. I seem to recall seeing a post aluding to that effect (probably one of the many news articles about the future of BL perhaps?).

Probably makes more sense to get everything in place for those 2 established races before adding new ones, etc.

I´d like to see new luxury dice. Heavier and with changed engravings so the different colour helmets are easier to spot.

A hardback book of the rules would be great. It could include extensive historical and racial background, new creature rules to anticipate new minis (players could use their own minis in the meantime), campaign rules, and new scenarios Cool

In this context it's "Uchronia".

I don't think it's a policy. My guess is they're genuinely too busy to answer every (any?) call for information. Even the blog posts are drying up, and they were policy designed to give just the kind of information people are looking for with good frequency.

Roob come on man - you wouldn't recommend a DoW game because the management are quiet?

Are you going to refuse medical treatment because you haven't heard from the hospital? Laughing

I have many great games that I love, and I don't even know who designed them, let alone who manufactured them. DoW are in the vanguard of games firms in terms of the support they provide for their games, and for the tools they provide for players to support each other. Let's get real here guys - how ever much we got we'd want more; it's the human condition!

To quote the US Ambassador to the UN during the Cuban missile crisis, "I'm prepared to wait 'till hell freezes over!"

as for support yes there very good corecting there mistakes ie bent figs,wrong backs for cards ,the wrong banners,crummy dice but hay dont make mistacks Laughing
how about some idea of whats planed DOW must have some idea
from what i understand Mr BORG knows whats planed and to tell you the truth there are no fly on him

if they sed thats your lot id be be happy

before i had the net id ask my local games shop hay whens that unnamed exp and they would say i dont know they dont tell us nothing but im shore its comeing 4 years later and where is it?

i picked up battlelore with out checking which company produced it i kinda whish i had cos if i had id have realised that it was the same company that had produced m44 i probally woldent have got it and you would have to struggle with my poor spelling

I agree with Roobarb on this.
This information policy is really making it hard to recomend battlelore to people.


The last few weeks i have been playing a few lunch games with a new guy at work who is an ex warhammer player.

He really likes the game, but when he starts asking about expansions and future development it just gets a bit embarrasing.

"There is suposed to be something called "heroes" out soon, but the company has been really vague about it for about a year, and have not really been giving any information to the game´s fans this year".

Not really what you want to hear if you are thinking about buying into a game system.
Not really what you want to say if you are trying to convince someone to buy inte a game system.

I agree. We're holding back on keeping BL in stock at the moment. Memoir 44 has promoted some interest, though.
