Does the Griffin card from the MUL not work?

You got a printer for me to print it with? I certainly don't.

Are these Pilot Cards compatible with AToW as well? Or could that still be a future product (similar to the AToW quick-start character cards).

You'll notice that several previously announced products are not on this list. Any product not listed below is not currently in the production pipeline and its release is not on the immediate horizon. This is the current production list.

Excellent News.

Ah. That does sound worse than intended. No, it hasn’t gotten the axe, but no news at this time.

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

This is answered at the top of the previous page, for those who won't read the whole thread.

Not tied in to AToW, just TW. That’d be too much to throw on something that’s included in the Intro Boxes.

Not on the immediate horizon. But as stated elsewhere upthread, it has not been outright canceled.

My own opinion: caulking in gaps in the timeline is nice for existing players but does not result in products that will bring in the new customers that are badly needed.

However! Part of the shift to the Brush Wars PDF model was to create a system for continuing to “caulk” while not drawing on primary production resources.

Not clear at this point. My sense is that it’ll depend how well the initial reprints do.

That’s up to the fiction side of the house. I’m not clear on what their plans for the BattleCorps archive are at this time.

There were previous discussions about doing another Brush Wars book to cover Operation Guerrero, the Confederation-St. Ives War, etc.    Will this new Brush Wars PDF product line be covering these conflicts?  I hope so!

Yes, the initial entries in this new Brush Wars PDF series and direction for the mini-PDFs would be built out of the work done by myself and others for what would have been Brush Wars II.

Thank you for answering that question.

I guess I should read everything first.

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

Sorry, these are printed on card stock, not salami.

Now we've got something to complain about.  Why no edible BT products?!?  How come there are no plans to produce mech sheets printed in icing on gingerbread cookies?   You'd get to nibble bits of the cookie off to match the damage your mech has received...

I don't know what it would take to make it happen, but is there any chance that some combination of those products might end up on the print-on-demand list at some point in the future?

Ding ding.

That's the ultimate goal, that each Brush Wars PDF and the other mini-PDFs that tie into that specific conflict would end up combined into one POD sourcebook after each "season."

But we're getting ahead of ourselves. I want to let everyone digest yesterday's news before diving too far into the Brush Wars details.

Record sheets printed on Fruit Roll-Ups. Pop off each bubble as you take damage, then eat the whole limb/torso when it's blown off.
