New 10mm wargame being released on the 16th of July, looks yummy to me, and I have a gap in my games systems for this scale :)

Yep, looks bloody amazing. The stuff on show at Salute was the best thing there according to many (in fact it's just about all I saw due to running the Mantic demos!

We are all looking forward to this :)

That looks truly gorgeous! I wonder if the rules will be any good? My interest is piqued!

These look cool. How big is the 10mm scale in comparison to GW epic? I'm not wanting to mix them, I just trying to get an idea of size.

Should be a bit larger - GW Epic is supposed to be 6mm scale, so if the scales are right it'll be almost like putting Inquistor scale figs next to 40k (while Inq is 54mm and 40k is supposed to be 28mm, 40k is closer to 30mm due it's heroic proportions).

I've talked about this to a few people. They absolutely have to be. The guys has dedicated the last 2.5 years of his life to this project doing everything himself. He's gone for a niche scale at 10mm so if the rules are not good, people are far less likely to buy the models for use in other systems.

But based on the work he's put in to this, I'm sure he's well aware and the rules will be good too. He's already planning where to take the background, the game and how to spin off into other gaming systems too.

Site now fully live. AFAIK all the "usual suspects" will be stocking it eg Warstore, Maelstrom - though some (eg Maelstrom) might not have them up yet.

I do like the PHR and UCM models, the Scourge look a bit too Matrix for me! Of course the question begs to be asked is if I was to invest in it would anybody in the Redcar club do the same?
