We've just received the final pics of the Blattsoldat! Unfortunately for those of us that play Soviets or Americans, it means we're likely to see more of these guys popping up on the battlefield. We'll keep everyone posted when they'll be ready for release.

Blackball Games posts an update on AEWWII

Blackball Games has posted an update to the state of AEWWII and how things are coming along with production and shipping.



Source

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!

Blackball Games ships out AE-WWII to Kickstarter backers

Blackball Games has shipped out their Kickstarter orders for AE-WWII.
Personally, these are my favorite sort of Kickstarter news story.



From the announcement:

Hey guys, just a quick update. The majority of the domestic rewards have been shipped today. The remaining domestic and all international rewards will ship tomorrow. Please drop us an email if there are any problems with your rewards or even just to let us know what you think of the books.

Included in many rewards are 'War Bonds' for the models we weren't able to include in your shipment. We again apologize for the delay, but as soon as we get these models in, they will be shipped to you at no charge. There's no need to return the War Bonds to us; we thought they'd be something to remind you we owe you big.

Thanks a lot for your patience, we look forward to hearing your thoughts about the new book and the new edition of AE-WWII!

New preview models and art for AE-WWII

Blackball Games is showing off some more models and a couple concept art pieces for AE-WWII they've been working on since their successful Kickstarter.



From the preview:

We've got a lot of great previews for you in this update. You'll see photos (bad ones) of the first three new models we've had sculpted for the new edition: the Kreighexe, the SS Vampire and the Draugr! We're very happy with how these models have turned out and we're sending them over to our painting team right away. Can't wait to see them on the battlefield!

In addition, we have two pieces of art for the Soviets! Attached are the final pic for the NKVD Puppet Master and a WIP of the Telekinetic. These powerful psychic soldiers of the USSR will give the SS a run for their money.

Blackball Games updates on their post-Kickstarter progress for AE-WWII

Blackball Games has been working hard since their Kickstarter was successfully funded, making sure that when AE-WWII gets to your doorstep it's the best it can possibly be.



From the update:

Hi guys, we're hard at work getting things rolling for the second edition and things are going great. Models are being sculpted and cast as we speak, the layout and editing for the new book are moving along nicely and a few new pieces of art are rolling in. In addition, we have packaging in our warehouse (aka: my car-hole) and the bases and token/template sets are lined up and ready to go. So things are moving along great!

I'd like to share the new concept art we have for the OORD Agent. Hector Ortiz is a fantastic artist that we've used for the Book of Fragments line and he was happy to lend his skills to the OORD Agent. With a combination of occult artifacts and military gear, this occult agent is ready to combat the horrors of the SS! We can't wait to see the sculpt! Thanks Hector!

AE-WWII: European Theater by Blackball Games up on Kickstarter

Blackball Games has got their AE-WWII: European Theater Kickstarter up and running. Will you join in with them?



From the campaign:

Based on real WWII experiments and legends from throughout history, AE-WWII is unlike any WWII game you've played before.

The game uses an innovative army creation system based on troop types and training levels – not on calculations. The action-point based gameplay is fast and clean with alternating activations and a dynamic morale system that is simple to learn, strategically deep, tactically rich, and fun as hell.

Alliances and Nations In AE-WWII: Pick your army from the ranks of Allies, Axis, and Communist forces. Simply pick your Nation, and a combination of branches to round out your selection. You can mix and match within your Alliance.
