General News Update: Paladin Danse, New Sculpts Information and More. [Updated]

[Update Note – Redaction and edit in final Paragraph]

With pictures from Gen Con flooding the internet, there has never been more love for the upcoming Table Top War Game, Fallout Wasteland Warfare. With the exposure that Gen Con brought, and the huge collection of revealed Sculpts already available, it’s easy to see where love is coming from. So what news from the front?

Well, it has been quite some time since we’ve heard anything in regards to new Named Characters coming to the game, but it has been confirmed by way of the Official Modiphius Facebook Page that the one and only Paladin Danse of Squad Gladius is still coming to the game. In fact, he may be further along than you think. Paladin Danse has been submitted to Bethesda for approval, meaning he’s closer than ever to appearing on your table top. We haven’t heard Danse be mentioned since back in May, so this is good news for Brotherhood of Steel fans.
Regarding another character that we haven’t heard of since May, it was again confirmed that “yes we’re doing a Curie.”

For those of us that have an interest in things that came before Fallout 4, of which there are many, it was also confirmed on the Official Modiphius Facebook Page that work has begun on creating miniatures based on fallout 3. Not only that, they have already began to look at characters from Fallout 1 and 2. For readers that would like to know, the exact wording, here’s a quote “Already we’re sculpting from fallout 3 and looking at characters from 1 and 2.”

Regarding miniatures, again by way of Official Modiphius Facebook Page, it has been confirmed that miniatures will be available individually if purchased directly from the store page. However, no information was given regarding whether or not this would apply to every single miniature, or just figures of note. Here’s what they said, “There will be sets with unit, gear and AI cards and we will do solo minis direct from our store.”

Customisation options were mentioned on the Official Modiphius Facebook Page. To that end, it has again been confirmed that “There will be some sprues of heads, weapons and gear for modding.”
With the addition of weapons and gear, it will be easier to build your characters using the equipment you want.

That’s all for know, thanks for reading.

Fallout Wasteland Warfare Starter Set Price Estimates & Upcoming Factions.

Yesterday, we detailed the contents of the Fallout Wasteland Warfare Resin Starter Set and had a brief chat about what you can expect to see in the PVC Starter Set which is expected to arrive some time next year.

It has now been revealed by Chris that the current price being given to people interested in the game is around £65-£70 / $80-$90. But according to Chris, the “goal is to get it as low as we can.”

That £65-£70 / $80-$90 includes a Female Vault Dweller (Nora), Dogmeat, One Brotherhood of Steel Aspirant in T60 Power Armour, Three Settlers, One Super Mutant Brute, Two Standard Super Mutants, Two Super Mutant Hounds and their scenic bases, all the dice required to play the game, all the required counters, a rule book, scenarios and unit cards as well as quests and gear cards. It also includes the highly interesting AI cards that control units in singe play. In other words, you’re getting everything you need to play the game!

It has also been confirmed that at launch The Survivors, Super Mutants and Brotherhood of Steel will be available. The factions that will be following them are the much sought after Raiders, Institute and The Enclave.

That’s all for now, thanks for reading.

Fallout Wasteland Warfare: Starter Set Contents Information.

Speaking through the official Modiphius Development Blog and a BoardGameGeek Thread, Chris Birch has revealed some new information regarding the upcoming Resin Starter Set and the PVC starter set that will be coming next year.

The Resin Starter set contents are as follows:

– One Armour D12
– One Skill D20
– Two Accuracy D12
– Two Armour Reduction D12
– Two Special D12
– Two Damage D12
– Rules
– Scenarios

– Counters
– Information Cards
– One Female Vault Dweller (Nora)
– One Dogmeat
– One Brotherhood of Steel Aspirant in T60 Power Armour
– Three Settlers
– One Super Mutant Brute
– Two Standard Super Mutants
– Two Super Mutant Hounds

The PVC starter set which is expected to ship sometime next year will contain some different units and scenarios to help reflect this. The PVC set is expected, but not set in stone, to be a Brotherhood of Steel team of roughly 9 miniatures and a Super Mutant force of roughly 9 miniatures. This is to help players get a wider variety of units rather than buying duplicates.


A small expansion is planned for players to get their hands on The Male Sole Survivor (Nate) as well as Cogsworth and a variant version of Dogmeat.

That’s all for now, thanks for reading.

Fallout Wasteland Warfare: Player Turn Breakdown.

[Update – Power Armour use clarified.]
Gen Con 2017 is going strong and the turn out has been, as expected, exceptional. One attendee, Brian Bosch from the unofficial Fallout Wasteland Warfare Group, was kind enough to relay some information to me regarding the game and the demo session he took part in.

To open, he clarified that the demo team stressed that the game is still in development and that this was brought up many times when questions were asked in regards to the games rules. As we cover character stats, you can cross reference them with the pictures attached so you an get a better understanding of how they work within the game.

The demo session that Brian took part in saw him assuming control of The Sole Survivor with a Combat Shotgun equipped vs a Super Mutant enemy. As previously shown in the Rule Set from Gen Con, players can take two actions in their turn. Brian opted to go on the offensive and made two shooting attacks against the Super Mutant. combat shotgun

 

When making a shooting attack, you first measure the distance between yourself and the target using the coloured range finders as dictated by your weapon card. As you can see in the image above, the Combat Shotgun uses Red and Blue range finders to determine Close Range and Long range.

shooting

Brian consults The Lone Wanderers Perception Skill and uses a White D20 to determine whether or not he hits the Super Mutant with his shooting attack. He successfully rolls a 7 or under, hitting the target Super Mutant!

combat shotgun short range
Because the attack was being made from within Short Range, Brian adds two black dice to his roll which add Damage Modifiers, inflicting damage on the Super Mutant and bypassing its armour. Had the shot not been strong enough to bypass the Super Mutants armour, the controlling player would roll a Red D12 in an attempt to block some of the incoming damage by rolling equal to or lower than the specified amount on their stat card. [You might also notice the Critical Point icon which reads, “!4 SHORT ONLY”.
Had Brian previously successfully shot 4 times with his Combat Shotgun he would be able to activate the weapons Critical Effect which would let him add extra damage to the attack as well as roll the Purple “Special” D12.]

armour

For example, our Lone Wanderer requires a 2 or lower to block the same amount of incoming damage. As has been previously mentioned numerous times throughout the games development, these stats can be change and improved by using pieces of gear, armour and equipment, but these were not used in this demo session.
902376
It has been confirmed by Chris Birch that Power Armour works on a sliding scale. He said that, “you roll equal or under your armour and block that many points of damage. Power armour suits come as cards that upgrade your health, strength and armour value but once they take as much damage as the extra health they flip around to the damaged side.”

Unfortunately, Skills like lockpicking and searching weren’t used in the demo session.

For those of you that still haven’t done it, I advise you catch up on the Development Blogs here, and download your free copy of the Modiphia Magazine here!

That’s all for now, thanks for reading.
