Re: Project Elite.
Wow. Sounds too good to be true… but they’ve already done 3 other successful Kickstarters and delivered on 1 and are in the process of delivering the 2nd.
Hmmmm… minis… tons and tons of minis…. 😀
I sent you my email contact. Did you get it?
I’ve done about 8 units so far. Another 12 to go. I must be mad! 😛
I now realise (after having seen those photos) the titans are on a totally different level from a WoK Rank 2 Specialist. They certainly deserve their own category!
And Alyana: yeah. It’s very intriguing: “an un-released Akkyshan”. It’s either some work they’d done earlier for Confrontation (since a lot of the designers/sculptors for WoK worked for Rackham) or the same designers/sculptors started work on Alyana for Confrontation before CMON decided to do WoK instead.
We’ll never know, I guess.
How did you get the art assets to do the Parry/Strike etc. symbols? Need those to make the cards.
Also: talk about rubbing salt in the wound!!!
Unproduced Confrontation Minis:
If you want to update some of your cards, here’s your chance. Especially Athan Zakhil.
And OMG! Scroll down to the 3rd (and last photo). If you can tear your eyes away from the 2 gorgeously painted sculpts… if that isn’t Alyana Heska (as “an un-released Akkyshan”) I’ll eat my shoes!
Yeah. I’m embarking on a quixotic project right now: converting the Confrontation models to play in WoK. It’s surprisingly do-able, although so far the Dirz troops convert the best. Might play them as a faction from an independent city that’s not under the sway of the 5 Scion Kings.
I’ve done up a troop table for Troop and Leader Ranks. Once you see it in b&w, you notice the gaps in the WoK units. That’s probably for a second KS sometime this (or next) year.
I’m now converting each troop and leader into WoK-style cards. Doing the info and stats and abilities right now.
Yeah. Pity about the Ram army. The others are more or less obtainable. For a price.
Did you see what some sellers were asking for complete army boxes for AT-43 (ONI, Red Blok) on eBay? Talk about sticker shock! Haven’t really seen anyone getting rid of their Confrontation armies yet.
@ UH: yes, it’s all your fault, that’s what it is… otherwise I could’ve picked myself up two nice armies of the Scorpion and the Ram for a song. Now the Ram is nowhere to be found and the Scorpions are rapidly disappearing. 😉
Too late! I’ve already started ordering the Dirz faction from MM (although SOMEONE swooped in and bought ALL the flyers… hellhounds something. Sheeesh).
But yes. More WoK for now. Re-starting a dormant line of minis is probably as difficult (if not more) as starting a brand new line.
Ah. Found this online:
“Rackham collapsed in 2010 but several companies decided to continue the Confrontation line. Legacy Miniatures started to reanimate the line in 2011. They have even produced some brand-new miniatures that had not been in the market due to Rackham liquidation. In April 2012, CoolMiniOrNot announced via Ravage magazine that they would be publishing a new edition of Confrontation based on the 3rd edition rules”
What that last sentence now means is anyone’s guess since WoK came out.
Huh. Really? Wonder if the Confrontation IP is up for grabs, then?
Yes. Frankly, I was amazed at how similar the Wolfen/Szkorza were. First cousins, to be precise.
CMON has 2 miniatures games in their IP: WoK and Dark Age. Really wonder what they’re going to do with the Confrontation IP in the long term.
I’ve read that CMON holds the rights for the minis game. Cyanide for computer games (did you know there’s already several games based on Aarklash already?). But if WoK is CMON’s entry into the field, can we expect Confrontation to be revived?
