Is IS defunct?

Postby Tas » Mon Sep 08, 2008 12:53 pm

I've been really tempted by this game for some time, and have been again recently, but I have to ask - is this game stagnant?

I understand that perhaps sales werent really going well, and thus the line of minis dried up. I also see that there are plans for other IS supplements at MJ12, but that other things are a greater priority. Quite understandable from a buisness perspective.

But also quite understandble from a consumer perspective is a reluctance to buy into a 'dead' game system. I know that will seem a harsh judgement, especially if youve been deeply involved with this game system, but from an outsider's perspective thats how it looks.

Ive posted this in the MJ12 forum too, but to be honest it doesnt look anyone goes there much anymore...

Come on, give me at least a reasonable excuse to buy some of those lovely minis! :D

But will astronef be "located" in same universe of Aeronef and Land Ironclads (Am I right - iron stai is the part of Aeronef and LI Universe?)
And... I HOPE you are not planing to close this game, because I want to buy Iron Star models in future :)
I like the idea of Victorian space :)

Iron Stars has a completely different setting to the Wessex VSF games, whereas Astronef will sit in the same background as Aeronef, LI etc.

IS isn't dead, just ... sleeping. If there were more hours in a day I'd love to make more IS models, some of the designs are really cool.

No - Aeronef has been out for quite a few years now (10 or 11, in fact !)

AFAIK Astronef is still some way from release

Stupid me! I mean Aquanef, not Aeronef :)
Aeronef is amazing game and I've just bought my first units (Turkish War Baloon, Kindjal Fighters and Muin-I-Zaffer class Dig Cruiser).

Ah OK - well, Aquanef is not far away I believe - we spoke to Steve Blease (of Wessex) about it on Saturday.

Aquanef is pretty much done and part way through typesetting. I need to do some work on stat lines and photographs. It's still a couple of months off (purely because we're part-time) but we think the wait will b worth it. Certainly having Aeronef/Aquanef crossover games will be a lot of fun.

Work on Astronef has started and Matthew aims to have the rules work written by August then it's in my court to develop the background etc.
