Exodus Wars in General Sci-Fi Posted October 24, 2006 Partially, I must admit that I agree with you. Still, there is nothing really new any more! The whole 'Romans in space' thing is not exactly my thing either. That said, while I have avoided the obvious inspired minis, I did get the standard human troops, and these are very nice. The range has clearly begun by being aimed at the disillusioned Epic fan base, and this will sustain it in the short term. My information implies that more races will be released, although not for a while, and I hope that these will broaden the scope of it all. I think that this stage is all about convincing people that the range is worth investing in, and that means getting people to take a look at the current set, and picking up some for inspection. The quality and detail are very good in both Exodus Wars and Dark Realm, and clearly the largest market to tap into at this time are the Epic players. Will this provide the only way forwards? No, I dont think so. Will the range survive only as a proxy set? No, I dont think that it will do this either. Are Epic players the most likely to be interested and are there enough to get them a good customer base on board? Yes, there probably is. Thanks. Oh I totally understand that some people may want to use these in their Epic armies as subs for other races. That's not the point. I think they could've done the same thing, but been a bit more original in the sculpts and the background. But beyond that, I think a company basing its minis line on how applicable it can be used with that other game doesn't sound like a formula for success. How many people feel a compelling reason to invest in BTD fantasy ranges (well, besides me and the old Harlequin dwarfs, which happen to be better than GW's current dwarfs). Believe me, I'd really, really like to see a 6mm SF game come out, one that is not a legacy from that other game.
