From the preview:

Estimated retail release Q2 2014

When we last saw the Valkir, they were nothing more than a base concept. I knew I wanted power armor troops for the Eisenkern faction that represented the mid-point of advancement through the Eisenkern Ranks. A soldier that was superior but still very much a part of the core army, unlike the Knightly households ‘Ritterorden’ which operate with much more autonomy, where you find the Assault Troopers and Support Troopers.

    Really like the look of these guys. Just don’t have a game to use them with.

      I will certainly give Iron Core its chance, but for now I use Tomorrows War for these.

      I just built a set of support weapons and have another squad of normal Stormtroopers on the table right now. I still hope that empty helmets with attached masks will make it into the command set for these folks without helmet – currently its nasty knifework.

      I will get one of the Valkir squads when they hit the shelfs in the old land. Kudos to Mark for the best spruework on the market.

      • I had one backer suggest that I combine the command squad with an accessory set. I think that is a rather keen idea. If I can swing it, it looks like a good addition when the opfor and game are released.

  • We are working hard to resolve that problem 😉 Iron Core the game will likely be going Alpha in April.

    My goal is to offer an opfor and game ASAP.

    • Official rules for Friday to battle with Monday, please! 😀

    Last month I asked Robey Jenkins of Precinct Omega to Partner with me for the rules development of Iron Core.

    Looking forward to this and pretty much everything Dreamforge.
    I just noticed that this will be a 20 man boxed set.. for real? Man, I hope you guys are able to maintain that as a standard..

  • I really love the designs! One question though: What is the lace-up jacketing around the heavy rifles for? The design choice seems strange, but if I knew that it served a purpose, then it wouldn’t bother me.

      If they are fighting in a cold environment it would prevent the barrel from being destroyed. The bore of that cannon requires a large powder charge but the thickness of the metal in proportion makes it brittle so in cold temperatures it could rupture.

      At least that is my assumption.

        …ugh.. edit button where art thou..

    • According to the fluff:

      That is a Heat/EMF shield. The Rifle is a Coilgun. the electro magnetic field generated by the rifle firing plays hell with the Power Armor and the heat generated degrades the shielding, so they made a field swappable cover.
