The rules compendium is most definitely needed!

My wallet is ready... I hope they add the 3rd errata punch boards to this. Well, depends on which comes out first.

wonder what kind of storage system...the army boxes are working fine for me with the inserts modified, but Germany has room for barely another bag of units. would be nice to have all the map tiles in one box.

No way in Hell!

- not even close on time estimates
- poor quality control on first print stuff
- dependent on iello to import and ship your KS items
- can pre-order and get stuff faster
* and properly packed for shipment
* and about the same price

True, but missing all the KS-exclusive bits! It's all about the bits!

Damn straight! I don't need a dice tower, the rules reformatted, or storage boxes, but I will need to get the new troops because they will eventually end up being used elsewhere. So I'm screwed.

Me neither, actually -- I made my own (an early prototype) a few years back for V&V! OK, so I never quite finished it (it's missing two cross bars), and I've since lost the original files, but I'm working on a new, upgraded version. I bet mine's finished before DPG's, but it probably won't be as cool as theirs...

Thanks, Dan. I got a kick out of reading DPG's announcement the other day. Not sure if I'll do the KS, but I'll probably pick up the dice tower if they make it available afterwards. If not, no biggie.

For now... I'll share the new one, once it's finished.

AKDoyle- and if nobody takes the risk and backs the kickstarter the product won't come to market and you won't be able to preorder it. Remember kickstarterer isn't meant to be a preorder service it a product development service.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

And with the popularity of HoN you really believe the few of us that don't want/trust KS and do not pre-order on KS will prevent this product from going forward. I doubt that will happen. Besides with how well this game sells DPG should have the resources now to just go forth and print these products without KS.

Anyway, I get my copy of HoN today and start my new addiction. I have watched this game and finally broke down last week and ordered it through my flgs. Will order a few add-ons next week too.

AnglePark,

That is a very nice and extremely thematic dice tower. I look forward to your posting of the finished product. I have made an Eighth Air Army Force style Control Tower "die tower" for when I play B-17: Queen of the Skies. I will for sure make the Pegasus Bridge version for HoN. The release of HoH-PB was the reason I broke down and bought this game.

Thanks for sharing
Jim P cool

I got my shipping notice today. It was only the items from the 2nd KickStarter SoN. Dagon Pledge. So my shipment is in limbo while DPG and iello figure out what to do about the copies of Shadows over Normandie and Pegasus Bridge I ordered during the FIRST Heroes over Normandie KS. THREE YEARS AGO!

To throw salt in the wound, I see Miniature Market has all the items I'm waiting on for sell.

http://www.miniaturemarket.com/iel58303.html

Good to know getting copies to retailers took priority over the KickStarters. And we thought Essen was a fluke. :/

Please tell me again WHY I should throw more money at DPG?

Now I wonder if it will again be possible to pick up the KS exclusive bits from the HoN and SON campaigns in this KS...

This too is my hope. If so, I will be in on this KS without question!

From http://www.devil-pig-games.com/en/en-route-vers-le-prochain-...

Stretch goals will mostly revolve around improving the Compendium quality and content, but with some new units and surprises. ​The campaign will include add-ons to give you the opportunity to pickup additional storage for the rest of your collection, to get the anticipated deck protectors and the KS exclusives you missed. There will also be storage and deck protectors for SoN as well. And because we know us well, there will surely be some other surprises during the campaign.

I hate to be negative, but a KS to provide the rules? Seriously? Shouldn´t that have been a freebie at their webpage or something?

Seriously, why NOT run a KS when you obviously have as many folks willing to chuck money at your company as they do?


A lot of 'Got to have them all!' types are pretty excited at the opportunity. DPG knows this.
