Hi all,


I was just wondering why there hasn't been a definitive statement from Devil Pigs that they are no longer supporting this game.


It certainly wouldn't take long to do and would be good to know before people invest money in it.


Perhaps the moderators know if a statement has happened as it's odd that there has not been any direction at all since the last release (years ago).


Thanks for any information.

I think they didnt get the expected interest, and struggled financily because of it. But I hope they will return with a ks for this later, since that is much safer 😀

There was a p500-style product release just a few years ago, but there are no big releases planned anytime within the next couple of years (so no new factions). The market for the game was no where near what was expected. DPG has declared they are focused on the Heroes of WW2 line for the present. They have published the roadmap through the end of next year (or so, since Heroes of the Pacific seems the next product line to come out).


There is a very interesting discussion going on in the Discord server right now, with a fan-made campaign in the works.

I am still playing this frequently, and in fact I just adapted sewers for HoBR to simulate fighting under the Hive Cities

That is a great idea! How about opening a new thread to share your thoughts?

I do not think there will be future products.


Very disappointing but I understand the economics of it.


I would really like to see the guard produced due to the varieties of tanks. And chaos also. And traitor guard.

I am another big fan of this system rather than world war two, but one thing i am curious about, are the point buy systems the same? Can 500 points of orks take on 500 points of Soviet Russians? or a detachment of terminators take on the Nazis.


thanks

Generally, yes. The points value reflect the attributes and abilities of the units, so 500 pts of each are just about on par. Most of the Action cards even have the same function, except perhaps for the Alternate bonuses.


I would suggest you use the HoBR rules to cover Assault (the rules about Support for the Assault specifically, since the rest is pretty much the same). There may be other bits, but Black Reach is not really my wheelhouse.


I would not recommend using aviation units, unless all sides have access, just to keep things on an even playing field.
