Thank you for serving!
I appreciate your friendship
Hey, I read your most recent trilogy and enjoyed every minute of it. Are you planning on continuing with the Blades of the Moonsea books?
I don't usually read these kinds of books, but the reason I picked up the first book was because of the author reading you did for the Wizards D&D site.
Rich, do you have a twitter account? What is your feed? Thanks, David S.
Hi RB, here are some polls we ran on the forumini which may help you in your decision:
I'd be okay with Germans getting more of their smaller ships, subs, and aircraft. I like the idea of special reprints of things like the Bismark, but I wouldn't want to see them mixed into a regular set. I think they'd be better off in something similar to the new starter set where you get the same standard set of ships. Maybe they could be little scenario packs with a couple reprint ships. It might be a good way to reintroduce some out of print units for new players, and at the same time fix mistake, like the Scharnhorst.
In fact, I'd rather see any future "fantasy" ships in something like that rather than in the main line of sets. Perhaps a "Maritime Monsters" with units like the Montana, Shinano, Lion, and so on.
RB!!! CZ was amazing!! While I am a little behind on collecting it at this point and only have about half the set, I have seen all the pieces in person, and this set was fantastic sculpt and stat wise. Paints were great on about 95% of th units as well. I just want to thank you for this ltest addition to this wonderful game.
Kreigsmarine, I am guessing you are well aware of the Blucher, Lutzow and Aux cruisers, I would even go so far as guess at least a couple of them may be sitting in your windowsill with the rest of set V. I for one am not overly excited by the idea of reprints, or fantasy ships, but if I had to pick one over the other, I would say fantasy ships. If you had to do reprints, I think a themed box set of non randomized miniatures like the starter would be the way to go. You could have the Battle For the Bismarck, Midway, Pearl harbor, Taranto, Leyte Gulf, Iron Bottom Sound etc etc etc, and give us reprints, sister ships, and maybe a new piece here or there.
For the Italians, we still have 3 battleships, Roma, Conti,and the sister of the latest BB from CZ. As far as fantasy goes you have Impero, the 4th Vittorio, and she was suppose to be very like Roma which was a tad bigger than her sisters, and she was launched but never under full power or armed, but before that we have Trento's sister, and perhaps a couple others I am overlooking. So that is 4 big Italian ships, granted you may have a couple of those already sitting on your windowsill.
I would invite you to give us Kaga!! Before people start killing themselves! Personally I have to say I feel she is the biggest exclusion up to this point, closely followed by CV-8 Uss Hornet(Dolittle Raid!!!!), Hiryu, and of course my personal favorite and hope and dream CA-33 Uss Portland.
acouple of questions we would love to know
How many pieces will set V be?
When is a likely time to see it? Early Next Year? later this year?
Without giving away too much, did you decide on a name?
Again thanks for this game, I have learned so much since picking it up about WWII and the Naval Battles. I always liked WWII history, and knew the basics, but now I live WWII History, and read more about it almost everyday!!
Well done on CZ!
I'd love to see all the historical units filled in the KM before the fantasy.
As mentioned - raiders would be very welcome (and can also be reprinted as actual merchants or reprints of...), so too would be shore installations, flak lighters etc.
I'd be happy to see some reprints of set 1 in different colours with differing SAs/points - it is a trading game... only after all that is exhausted would I want to see fantasy ships/aircraft..
Hmmm...so the question is, does the Opening Salvo (Thank you by the way!) count as your blog entry, or should we look forward to a blog entry soon? :)
You were a great DM for the delve at DDXP - Also, sounds like you are doing some great stuff with Gamma World and Dark Sun. - Looking forward to your Lords of Tyr podcast interview!
