Anvil Eight Games


The Rhommox are unlike other factions for Aetherium. They're not out for a particular ideology or simply trying to conduct business in a new form. They only want to spread, infect, and destroy. As such, their tactics are different from how others operate. And their figures are much more alien. Check out the Volatile sculpts below.

So... it's Monday.
Maybe we shouldn't dwell on that, but, instead remember the games we all (hopefully) played on the weekend. Heck, my gaming started before I even left the office on Friday with a game of the Bloodborne Card Game. Then a game of Guild Ball on Saturday. Always wanting to get in more games of that. Plus, there's always looking forward to next weekend's games... and the terrain they'll be using. And with that, we go to the Terrain Corner.

Today we have: Anvil Eight Previews Rhommox Faction Pylon, ShipWorks 3d Printable Ship Terrain Up on Kickstarter, Operation Alpha: SciFi Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargame, and Return Of The Gaming Mat From Battlefront.

In physics, a vector is something that has both velocity and direction. In Aetherium, it's a nasty program that is part of the Rhommox faction. That isn't to say that it doesn't also have velocity and direction. The velocity is "as fast as it can" and the direction is "into the heart of the enemy forces, where it's bound to tear stuff up."

We've all heard about computer worms. They're nasty, little programs that can infect your system and just keep on tunneling through. That might be annoying enough as-is, but in the world of Aetherium, you might just run into The Wurm, one of the terrors of the Rhommox Faction.

Just about anyone that's gotten a computer bug knows just how hard they can be to get rid of. Once your computer is infected, it seems to take the combined might of several IT professionals, multiple anti-virus programs, and no less than 4 sacrificial offerings to clear your computer. Well, in Etherium, those computer bugs are personified in the Micros. These little critters might not do much damage on their own, but they're almost impossible to get rid of.

The Rhommox are not like any other faction that's in Aetherium. These beast-like programs aren't out for personal gain or some political agenda. They're just looking to destroy. And within that horde, the Beetles are some of the biggest and toughest. They're also able to make sure their disruption effects trigger automatically, certainly something to watch out for if you see one charging at you.

Aetherium takes place in the digital world of a cyberscape filled with programs. And, like most of us know, there's malevolent programs out there wanting to just gobble up your normal programs and make your computer melt. In the game, those are the Rhommox. In this preview, we get a look at the artwork for a Trojan. I think we're gonna need a bigger horse.

Aetherium, the minis skirmish game in the realm of cyberspace, is getting itself a new faction. They're led by the Rhommox, a gigantic hulking thing. They're showing off the artwork for that, as well as the first program that goes with it, the Wasp. Check 'em out.

Gen Con this year has been everything I was expecting it to be. Mostly: filled with awesome stuff to see and filled with lots of people! Saturday has always been the busiest day, and yesterday was no exception. And while there was a mildly-noticeable larger crowd, we weren't all packed in like sardines, for the most part. You could still get around to see all the great booths here at the show. Though taking pictures was sometimes difficult. But take them I did. And here they are for you to see.

So, it's coming up to 8pm. Day 2 is definitely in the books for Gen Con 2016. It's been a very busy day. I'm tired, but still pretty amped about everything that's gone on. And I'm sure you all would like to know about some of it. There's been about a billion things to see. So, relatively, here's a rather small percentage. More will come tomorrow.

Man! Today sure has been busy! I've gotten a bunch of photos taken. I've talked to a lot of really cool people. I've gotten a demo of a brand new game (demo report forthcoming). And I've had Portillo's. Can't get any better than that, really. So if you've not been following the coverage over on the TGN Facebook Page, here's what you've been missing:

Aetherium is getting 50% bigger. House Ikaru, a new 3rd faction for the game, is up on Kickstarter now. This new faction is sure to shake up the balance of the Aetherium, as their operatives move in to show that financial control of the real world is only the start of the aspirations of this giant megacorporation.

Anvil Eight has just opened up their webshop. You can now get all those Aetherium miniatures (and, of course, the game, itself) for your very own. Another one of those products that come from a successful Kickstarter campaign, it's always good to see those turn into general releases, and I look forward to seeing more upcoming releases for this new game.
