From the update:

Some big news for AE-WWII! We have received the masters for the Hoodoo Conjurer, Schutzkommando and OORD Agent! In addition, the massive shipment of MoAA Agents have arrived. We expect to have the three additional models cast up and to us in a week or so. We’re very proud with the quality of these figures and we’ll be posting pics of the painted models shortly.

With these new models coming in, we’ve added them to the online store as well as the British Starter Packs and American Occult Detachment Packs. We’ve also made some changes to some blisters and will be phasing out some of the old blisters. Beginning today, we have the following blisters on sale for 40% off:

– German Troopers
– Russian Troopers
– Russian Snipers
– SS Knight

For these last two models we’ve created two new blisters for each, separating the two models in the blister into two additional packages. We’ll keep these models for sale until we’re completely sold out, at which point they will no longer be available. So get them while you can!

Finally, we’ve just update the AE-WWII Errata with some additional rules clarifications. Head on over to the forum to check it out and please let us know if we’ve missed something.

Thanks a lot for your support and patience!

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • I purchased the book recently and I wonder if it’s really a new version of the rules.
    As stated in the KS they aimed at : “launching an all new version of the rules,”.
    What I have here looks like a compilation of the 2 first books (sold at 50$…) but I did not notice many changes.

      good thing i didn’t back it. never got the feeling they were putting that much effort into revitalizing the game. Seems like it’s still the same slow moving molasses train of stuff from 5 years ago.

        Effort or money? Maybe it’s a slow go because that’s what they can afford for now.

        Shame, since it’s quite a fun game.

    I did back it, and view the second edition book as a bit of a missed opportunity. As noted, the book compiles material from the original core rules and the Occult expansion. Some additional material has been added (the expanded rules for options when building detachments is a good innovation), but I find the number of typos and copy-paste errors disappointing, and also the failure to include errata from the Over the Wire magazines. It looks like it was rushed into production, which is unfortunate, as I do like both the system and the setting information.

  • Please note that the system is no longer a Darkson Designs product.

    Blackball seem like total amateurs. I can’t imagine the game suddenly surging in popularity with them at the helm, and can only hope that those rumors about them acquiring Confrontation are untrue.

  • Blacball didn’t acquire confrontation…CMON has the rights to it.

    • Riquende

      Yeah, but last I heard Blackball were writing the rules, having disbanded their playtest program as the playtesters weren’t giving them the feedback they wanted to hear. Doesn’t sound promising.
