looks interesting...

I hope you do not mind, but I posted the link on a Hungarian board game forum. I am sure some people will react there.

Wow!! This looks very cool and very promising. Great job so far. If you need any playtesters in the US, contact me.

I like the idea of the symmetrical map for fairness, and the castle map sounds cool.

Will there be any unbalanced maps (in regards to terrain) for people who wanna fight an "uphill" battle, or try to overcome a smaller force in better terrain?

Or will you include terrain tiles to change the outlay of the battlefield?

Great work so far!

Looks like you're working on Orcs and Elves first....please come out with SKAVEN next!!!!!

thx for you enthousiasme

well about maps: i can make them as i/we please, i evne can give my photoshop fiules to trusted involved guys

i want to have this game be one of teh community

i have wide experiences with boardgames and looking for long time for a fun fast paced balanced one wich is ez to play but like chess have endless depth ;o)

So i provide map tiles and everything, i have time if not facing death and in time as i said i will share everything.

About next race well they are created fast as well so skaven could be next. if u liked the idea and willingly to test it and participate in its further development tha u have big chance your wishes are heard.

Skaven will bring a new challenge as i am still thinking about swarm-rules....

true thats why its a free print and play game

ofcourse if any good designers pop up i give them room to create the counters and such but its pointed out in the disclaimer on the website.
i contributed so much to the table top gaming that i felt i could use it for this game.

well it wouldnt ofcourse but first lets see if they spent energy in such little thing and again i have no single intention to make the game commercial

ofcourse if u know nice designers to design the counter-units then i woulkd like to hear from u as well.

furthermore i had contact many years ago with a similar thing with GW and they never ever responded

so would they really care in thiscase?

Well, they went after a publisher that used the Blood Bowl game (OOP I might add) to base their Fantasy Football video game after. So much so that GW now owns the rights to the video game, the name is a part of their Blood Bowl universe, and the company is now under their control for the most part.

Yes, unfortunately for you they will care if they find out. I have a few friends who have gotten cease and desist orders from GW legal for doing similar things. Games Workshop is really good at hunting down their IP online and sending out scary letters.

The good news for you is that until you get a scary letter you don't have to worry. If GW does send one then you just have to remove the stuff and they won't pursue it anymore. Hopefully a kind artist on BGG will offer to draw some art for you. Another option would be to use pics of minis r something from another companies' range. Most of the other mini companies are not like GW and do not mind if you put out free fan-published work (cause it might get them some sales of minis).
