  • Welcome to the 7th Issue of the "Behind the Scenes" Blog!

    First and foremost, before getting into the spoilers, here are some updates regarding how the BTS-blog will evolve in the next weeks and months to come:

    After tallying up the likes in the last issue, there was an overwhelming majority in favour of a more serious style with collapsible formatting. This means that we will continue in with this more serious style, but still try to also carter to those who preferred the old more relaxed style. Basically everything rules-, spoiler-, or management-related will be written in a more serious tone, while the intro, transitions between topics and ending should be more informal. It is an iffy balance we know, but a trial and error never hurt anyone (...said the surgeon).

    Furthermore, after the flood of comments in the blog, we quickly realised that the Blog comments section does meet our needs for a good discussion, nor does it represent the various levels of interest in certain subtopics. Besides, it is a real pain to write longer explanations without the normal forum tools (and @Kathal gets grumpy after 200+ notifications - nah man :gcool: ).

    That's why we've decided to open a thread in the General Discussion sub-forum which is dedicated to each issue released.

    Last but not least, we're trying to implement a "fancy" table of contents in each BTS blog, to give you a quick overview:
    • Army Uniqueness, Identity and imperfection in the current game
    • A Peek at the 2.0 rules changes - Part 3
    • DL Spoilers - Unit design
    (if I find now a way to hyperlink the corresponding topics in the blog, it would be "truly" fancy) [Read More]
  • Salutations Sons & Daughters of the Ninth Age!

    We hope you are all enjoying this fine Spring in the very best war-gaming tradition - by staying indoors and preventing direct sunlight from exploding those FineCast models.

    This episode, we've decided to test out a more 'condensed' format - but do not be deceived by first appearances - there are a LOT of spoilers in here for those keen to peer into the looking glass for a glimpse of what's coming in 2.0.

    So, what's been happening behind the curtains you may ask?
