[Kickstarter] WarGods Christmas Update!

 

Le cadeau de Noël de Chris... La version bêta des chapitres 3, 4, 5 et 6. Avec ce qu'on avait déjà on se retrouve avec quelque chose d'assez complet. Il y a des illustration très bonnes notamment le chevaucheur de pégase. 
Je ne mettrai pas les liens puisque c'est un cadeau pour les backers. Ceci étant Chris appelle les gens à une relecture intensive donc je peux faire passer aux bonnes volontés.

Merry Christmas from the Crocs!

We hope everyone is having a super holiday with family and friends! Are your presents all unwrapped?  If so, grab a glass of eggnog, serve up a slice of fruitcake, and then scroll down to unwrap one more present from Santa Croc!

Olympus 'beta' rules
Ready for download is the 'beta' version of the complete warband construction rules for the game - the complete chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6!  This is 164 pages, containing ALL the units, characters, factions, and powers in the game.

Please note, while the text in this document is generally finalized, any text that appears in red has been marked for correction. These sections are small "fluff" stories that will be added to fill leftover space - they are written to fill the hole on the page, so they are always the last thing to go in. Also marked in red are page references (for instance, see page XXX). These will be corrected right before printing, as it is possible that the page order at this point may still change slightly. Also there are 3 blank pages, one at the end of each chapter -- don't fret about these, they'll be 'summary' pages that have compiled profiles of all of the units in the preceding chapter. Like the above, we do these at the end so that the profiles don't get mixed up..

You can download the beta rules here:


Remaining chapters

Not included in the PDF are chapters 1 (introduction), 2 (core rules), 7 (campaign play), and 8 (setting). These sections all need a little more layout work to make presentable (though they are nearly there), so rather than delay things further we'll be posting them on January 15.  This gives our backers 3 weeks to digest this section, while we finish off all the remaining bits in the rest. The rules chapter is essentially the same as the Aegyptus rules, so if you need to reference anything right now, you can look it up in the Aegyptus PDF, available here:


Editorial Help

Players are welcome to let us know if you find any spelling/grammar mistakes, or rules inconsistencies. Just reply in the comments section of this Update - please be specific as to the page number and error location, and we'll get it fixed!

Finally, a HUGE thanks goes out to Barry Lee, Craig Tannock, and Kevin Kim for all of their help getting this text into presentable shape!  You guys are the best!

We hope everyone enjoys the rules, and has a fantastic holiday!

-Chris & Felicity FitzPatrick, Crocodile Games

Cavalerie Amazones + Livre de règles Olympus

 

Retrouvez les règles pour la cavalerie à Olympus. Voilà donc les règles officielles pour la cavalerie. Pas eu le temps de mettre le nez dans les règles mais ça me donne des idées pour une unités d'élite pour les Escortes d'Osiris et Isis !! 

Le livre de règles d'Olympus sera en beta pour noël sous la forme d'un PDF disponible pour les backers. Bref encore du retard mais ça avance quand même. J'espère toutefois que si c'est en Beta on laissera le temps de faire remonter des commentaires. 314 pages (contre 288 pour Ægyptus) à décorttiquer.

Enfin Crocodile Games s'est équipé d'un nouvel appareil photo qui a l'air plutôt pas mal au regard des dernières vidéos et photos proposées. Je vous laissse juger.

Enjoy

Amazon cavalry rules & book update

Greeting backers!

What is that rumbling noise?  Like the distant sound of thunder, getting closer and closer!  Look, upon the horizon, a cloud of dust arises.  We  hear the high-pitched, piecing battle-cries, full of fury -- it is the Amazon horse-women, riding into battle!

Amazon cavalry rules

We've had a lot of requests to see the rules and background for the Amazon cavalry in WarGods of Olympus, so here they are at last! Below are 2 PDF links, the first goes to the actual warband listing for the Amazon cavalry, the other references a new section of the rules that deals with Mounted Characters.

https://www.crocodilegames.com/docs/Kickstarter/Amazon_cavaly_rules.pdf

https://www.crocodilegames.com/docs/Kickstarter/Mounted_models.pdf

You'll notice a few sentences with a page reference, like 'see page XXX'  This is not a mistake, they'll be corrected in the final printing of the book.  But because the page order may change a little as we are finishing the layout, we have not assigned actual page numbers to these references.  They'll literally be the last thing we change before we go to print, to be sure we get them all right.  So don't worry about them for now - most refer to sections that you can find in the Aegyptus book for now.

Click click click!

One of the biggest challenges we've had is getting our photos to look good enough for reproduction.  Before this year, we were using an old, battered Nikon Coolpix that was purchased by a fledgling Croc Games way back in 2002!  It was clear that it just was not good enough to get the shots we needed for the book, and so we've upgraded to a modern Canon Rebel... the first pics have come through on our recent Corinth release, and we're now reshooting the older Amazons taken with the old Nikon.  Felicity is making great strides with the photography, and we hope you'll agree!  Here are some larger photos of the 2 Amazon units in the PDF.  (The PDF is low resolution, but they should look super crisp in the printed book!) 

Check out the larger pictures:

Amazon Raiders

Amazon Outriders

Rulebook update

The rulebook has now reached a total page count of 314 pages! (compared to 288 in the Aegyptus 2nd Edition).  We're getting close to finishing the layout, and we'll be posting a 'beta' PDF version for Kickstarter backers to download in a few weeks (before Christmas.)  We've been working with a couple of our long-time players to try to catch as many errors as possible before we do this, and with their help we're making great strides towards the finish line. 

Thanks to everyone for their support, and Happy Thanksgiving to all!

-Chris & Felicity

Photos des Corinthiens

 

De belles photos en haute résolution des Corinthiens !!
http://www.crocodilegames.com/forum/msgView.cfm?postID=17501&boardID=11



The Corinth models are now photographed and in the Croc Store. Since our store currently only displays images about 400 pixels wide (which is pretty small), I'm uploading some larger images here. Feel free to link or share any of these with your friends!
Also, if you have painted up some of your own Corinth models, and want to show them off, post them here - we'd all love to see them!

Warband of Corinth, now available!


The new range of miniatures for Corinth is available now, in the CROC STORE!

Arrogant and wholly corrupt, the Corinthians are the wealthiest city-state in all of Hellas. The army of Corinth is equipped with the finest weapons and armor, their shields emblazoned with a white winged horse, and wearing luxurious cloaks of the deepest black – a grand sight on the battlefield, even if their bravery is sometimes questioned. Yet what need is bravery, when enemies can be bribed and betrayals bought with full coffers of Corinthian silver?

The Corinth miniatures were sculpted by Todd Harris and Chris FitzPatrick, based on concept art by Des Hanley. Corinth color painting by Paul Jeacock. The display models were painted and photographed by D Felicity FitzPatrick.
The new Corinth range contains the following packs:
WGO-906 Corinthian Warband Starter Set - $74.95
WGO-133 Corinthian Captain, with Casualty - $8.95
WGO-134 Corinthian Hero, with Armor Rack - $8.95
WGO-323a Corinthian Hoplite Unit - White Wings (12) - $39.95
WGO-323b Corinthian Hoplite Unit - Soldiers of Fortune (12) - $39.95
WGO-323c Corinthian Hoplite Unit - Suitors of Aphrodite (12) - $39.95
WGO-325 Corinthian Archer Unit (10) - $35.95
WGO-324 Corinthian Peltast Unit (10) - $35.95


To see LARGER painted images of all of these Corinth models, check out this thread on the Croc Forum.

L'Hydre disponible sur le store

 

Photos, vidéo, règles de l'hydre... C'est noël avant l'heure.
http://www.crocodilegames.com/pressItem.cfm?pressID=56&gameID=1


The Hydra, now available!

We are happy to announce that the Hydra is now in-stock and available for purchase!
The Hydra miniature was sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick, and measures roughly 5.5 inches long (or about 140mm). It is a multi-part resin kit, and contains 5 heads, 1 body, 2 legs, 1 tail, 1 resin scenic base, and 1 laser-cut wood gaming base. It was molded and cast by the experts at On the Lamb Games, and they did a great job capturing the serpentine detail of the original sculpt. The miniature is supplied unpainted, and require some assembly.
You can get yours now, in the Croc Online Store.
We also have a downloadable PDF of the Hydra rules for WarGods of Olympus, available HERE.
Hydra scale reference
The above photo shows the size of the Hydra next to a 28mm miniature.
Oh yeah, do you need a Golden Fleece for your Hydra to guard? We have one of those too!

The Golden Fleece is also available HERE.

Cyclopes disponibles

 

Bien beau, bien peint...
http://www.crocodilegames.com/pressItem.cfm?pressID=55




We are happy to announce that our Cyclopes are in-stock, and now available for purchase!
The Cyclopes miniatures were sculpted by Todd Harris, and the display models painted by Felicity FitzPatrick. Each model is a little over 3" tall, making them about 18 feet tall (if the were real - they are not, of course!). The head/neck joint of each Cyclops is the same, so you could put each head on either body. Also, each Cyclops has a separate bit hanging from his belt - one has a huge hammer and tongs, for helping Hephaestus at his forge, the other has a big jug of wine and the leg of a slow-moving farm animal... in other words, lunch! Each of these belt ornaments have a universal connection, and so they be swapped onto the other Cyclops if you like. So, collectors who like lots of variety can make 4 different Cyclopes by swapping their heads and gear around!
Each is a resin and pewter model supplied with a laser-cut wood base. The resin components were cast by our friends at "On the Lamb" games, and they did a super job capturing the detail and nuance of Todd's original sculpture. The miniatures are supplied unpainted, and require some assembly.

You can get yours now, in the Croc Online Store.

We also have a downloadable PDF of the Cyclops rules for WarGods of Olympus, available HERE.

The above photo shows how tall the Cyclopes are compared to a 28mm miniature. We think the unlucky Trojan may be in a spot of trouble!

News sur WarGods of Olympus

 

Quelques news. Figurines finales en cours d'envoi. Le livre avance avec quelques extraits des Intrigues Secondaire et des scénarios (on reconnait des scénarios de la Campagne Mondiale 2010 Quête de la Toison d'Or). Plus de 500 photos devraient arriver dans pas longtemps et les figurines vont être disponibles sur le webstore. Reste pas mal de travail sur le livre de règles mais il devrait sortir avant la fin de l'année.

Campaign chapter previews

Greetings from the Croc HQ! 
We're back with another progress update, this time featuring some larger previews the Campaign chapter.
Miniature rewards have shipped!
As of now, we've largely finished shipping the miniature rewards.  If you have not received yours, or have not heard from us about them, please get in touch.  We're not perfect, but if we missed you for some reason, just let us know and we'll fix it as soon as possible.  There were a few backers that we have not heard back from yet regarding their shipping addresses, and if this is you we'd like to get these minis in the mail to you without further delay!
As most of you know, most of the Kickstarter minis have not yet made it into our webstore -- we've been focusing on getting everything to our backers first.  But, we get a lot of emails from customers who missed the Kickstarter asking when we're going to make them available.  So over the next few months, we'll be beginning to release them to the general public.  This is likely to take the better part of a year to get them all out, just due to the large number of minis that we were able to get produced.  However, if any of our Kickstarter backers need minis before the release, you are welcome to email us -- we have a small supply left in the bins for our backers who need 'reinforcements', even if they are not yet in the store.  You guys are our top priority!
Remaining Rewards
So what is left for us to finish?  We are now down to just the "Painted Warband" rewards and the printed book. On the painting front, we're currently putting the finishing touches on all of the Painted Rewards, totaling well-over 600 photo-quality miniatures.  As you can probably imagine, these have been a gigantic job, and one that has devoured a huge amount of sheer man-hours to complete.  But we are almost there!  We expect these will all be done within the next month.  We're only just starting to photograph them all, but starting with the next update we'll be showing off some of the 'official' paint schemes for everyone to see. 
As for the book, it is getting closer to completion with every week.  We know everyone is eager to see more inside, so we've made a couple preview PDFs from the Campaigns chapter to show.
You'll notice that these are titled "Sea Scenarios" and "Sea Subplots" - what does that mean?  The Olympus campaign chapter is a little different than the Aegyptus campaign - we couldn't just do the same thing, could we?  The Olympus campaign plays more like a quest than a war, with warbands traveling around the land of Hellas, competing for Clues that will unlock the final battle.  Battles can take place in three different realms (each with their own 10 Scenarios and Subplots), and they are the Land, Sea, and the Underworld.  Land Scenarios and Subplots take place on the mainland of Hellas, close to human civilization.  Sea Scenarios are on remote islands and distant shores, and have the feel of the Odyssey with a bit of Ray Harryhousen-style adventure mixed in.  And last, Underworld Scenarios take place in the land of the dead, and so you can expect them to get a little... creepy! 
Obviously, we don't want to spoil everything, but here are the compete sections for the Sea Scenarios and Subplots.  Please note, final editing has not yet been finished, so there may be some mistakes inside, and a couple of the graphics are not completed.  Also, the exact page-count of the book is still not finalized, so page references in the rules text will simply say "See page XXX".  These will all have the correct page numbers added in, but that is literally one of the last things we do before sending the files to the printer. 
Campaign Previews Download here:
https://www.crocodilegames.com/docs/Kickstarter/Sea_Scenarios_preview.pdf
https://www.crocodilegames.com/docs/Kickstarter/Sea_Subplots_preview.pdf
That's all for now - we've got a layout and editing to do, plus a thousand other things we've missed, so we're heading back to work.  We hope you like this preview!
-Chris & Felicity (Debs) FitzPatrick
