  • Roadmap for LAB

    So the idea is simple, can we get roadmap what LAB is worked on and at what stage it is, plus what LAB are next in line? I do understand it could result in people being upset that their army will be worked on last but there will be that army regardless as we can't have all LAB to be made at once. This could also help with amount of fluff and maybe art that could be used in books? If lore could be written way before the rules would be even considered to be in alpha, it could speed up the process of translation to other languages.
  • Gold LAB's (Considered 'done' aside from yearly tweaks)

    WDG
    DL
    ID

    Beta (pre-gold - still in development, but close to gold)
    DE
    VS (I think - or it could be in the 'end of Beta' someone from this team can clarify)

    Alpha (Design has moved from in-house to public to gather broader feedback)
    KoE

    Internal design stages (Alpha, or pre-alpha)
    SA
    OnG

    Everything not on that list is theoretically 'open for next in line'
    We have our own shortlist for Exb/AvB where we have our preferred books to be slotted in next. This is based on ACS feedback, RT feedback, and other team feedback. We want to make sure the 'next' book is well suited to both the needs of the game (which change from year to year) as well as well suited to the resources of the team and project.

    Management doesn't release the shortlist due to our desire to not be pressured by vocal forum campaigns, and would rather rely on feedback filtered from ACS, RT, and TA.

    The book that will be slotted in after OnG will happen once DE goes gold and we feel we have freed up staff to begin the next work.

    Hope that helps clarify!

    this is great chunk of information, can we get that pinned and updated with time?
    @edit also, can we at least get a wee peak in time for example: "when we finish with current LAB, next army will probably be: xyz", you know, just to keep our inner kid spirit excited.
