Sounds interesting, hope you got more pilots coming in later in some form. I'm terrible at coming up with pilot callsigns/names. Pre-made pilots sound nice addition.

Me too! If these are well-received, there's always possibilities for new cards in the future.

All in all, the coming releases look good. Just hoping you'll manage to stay on schedule, especially when it comes to Shattered Fortress.

When I built this revised list, my strong professional opinion to management was to not include any date that was not solid enough to stand by. And, in cases where we weren't totally certain of a date, to shoot long. There are a lot of moving pieces, especially with the box sets, but my intention is to stay on top of the dates to provide updates and, where possible, explanations.

Oh, and i hope the TROs weren't completely canned, even if they ain't coming anytime soon. They had rather interesting themes.

Not canned AFAIK, but their status just wasn't solid enough to include here, on the principle stated above.

The print-on-demand thing sounds nice. While PDF is good, I like to lie down with a book in the evening. Certain chairs in my house just don't do my back kindly for extended periods.

I vote for these too. This is a very digestible product I could use in games.

Great to hear that the Front Lines anthology will be coming out.  Will it be in print, electronic, or both?  Also, what about the Legacy anthology?

Will the GDL prequel in the beginner box be different from the GDL prequel in the main box?

Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

Cubby, looks like there's a description error with the Beginner's Box. It is missing the 2 AS cards (which is important as the Griffin is unique to that box).

Thanks for the update Adrian, the covers look awesome thunderbolt-y.
You’re very welcome, but Cubby did all the hard work. He beat Brent and I until we have him enough information to put together a press release.

What are the pilot cards?
Maybe we’ll give a sneak peek this week or next.

Those were pulled. AS cards only in the Game of Armored Combat Box.

That's a whole lot of awesome news!   :thumbsup:  Are there plans to possibly have pilot cards available through the MUL, similar to the Alpha Strike cards?

Could they throw the Griffin card in to AGoAC then? :D

Edit: I'd like to note that not having the Griffin card is a point of contention in buying the Beginner's Box. XP

No plans at the moment--we'd like to sell them via the new boxes first.

Front Lines should be both, last I heard. I can try to get some clarity. (FWIW, we're getting a lot of good questions across all channels with this news, so it may take me awhile to run down answers.)

Legacy wasn't clear enough to include, but last I heard, the intent was to try to get it out this year, too. I'll ask on that as well.

The Awesome (and all the new boxed set miniatures) look absolutely gorgeous.

I was already planning to get at least one box set (either basic or deluxe), but now I'm serious tempted to get two of the eight-mech box sets. They just look that good! AND I WANT TO PAINT ALL OF THEM.  :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Plus, a $20 boxed set available at my FLGS would give me motivation to run some demos and maybe try to recruit a new local Btech gaming group!

I'll reiterate to be stubborn.

Are there plans to include the Griffin AS card in AGoAC? Without that card, it kinda excludes the Griffin from immediate playability in AS. Mind you that there is the MUL, but I did say immediate.

I suppose, but it was also intended to be a list of things that are actively being worked on, not things that we'd like to put out one day.

I know, but yeah, IC its Death Commandos to the majority.  I was just poking at Capellan fans that the new big box has Davion stomping on Liao.
