June Newsletter

Post by RabidFox » Mon Jun 02, 2008 5:47 pm

Graham, the Arion release schedule in June's newsletter -

"July: Dinosaurs
August: Fantasy Monsters II
September: WWII - Americans
October: Maelstrom Minis
November: Pulp III
December: Post Apocalyptics"

- looks GREAT!!! :)
Especially my beloved and much needed Pulp III! :D

Any clues that you are willing and/or able to share as to what is to be in any of these kits? :?:

BTW, thanks for deciding to do the Joes; not that the Tommys would have been a disappointment Graham, just good guys from a different side of the Pond. :wink:

Big set, huh Graham.
How punny!
Good too!

How about these dinos:
Gallimimus
Edmontonia
Brachiosaurus
Diplodicus
Apatosaurus (aka Brontosaurus)
Camarasaurus
Therizinosaurus
Compsognathus
Ornitholestes
Carnotaurus
Spinosaurus
Allosaurus
Raptor cousins - Velociraptor, Deinonychus & Utahraptor (Raptors in JP are actually Utahraptors in dimensions)
Ceratosaurus
Oviraptor
Pachycephalosaurus
Stygimoloch
Stegosaurus
Iguanodon
Hadrosaurus
Parasaurolophus
Corythosaurus
Some of the other Ceratopsians (Styracosaurus, Centrosaurus & Chasmosaurus)
Amargasaurus
Baryonyx
Suchomimus

Is there also animals that lived at the same time as dinos in this set ?
If yes, then:
Elasmosaurus
Ophthalmosaurus
Tylosaurus
Liopleurodon
Cryptocleidus
Shonisaurus
Deinosuchus
Pteranodon (sternbergi & longiceps)
Quetzalcoatlus
Rhamphorhynchus
Tapejara
Pterodactylus
Archelon

Is this set going to stay with the Mesozoic and there will be a separate set for the Prehistoric Mammals and such from the Cenozoic?

Demon tree?
Do you mean Tangler?

I hope there will be no beasts like those creatures in the Modern Monster set.
I would rather keep the monsters in this set limited to actual fantasy literature, either traditional mythology or firm set fantasy fiction.

Howitzer

Boy, have you left that set open to suggestion Graham.

Which howitzer?
I hope you will choose the airdropped 50.
Plus, the defrocked Priest was a good SP howitzer.

Do not forget BARs with the infantry; they were more common than Thompsons with the non-Airborne troops.

Do you already have Willy's Jeeps?
Dodge "Deuce & a half" trucks?
Half Tracks?
Need also:
M4 Sherman.
M5 Stuart.
M10 Hellcat
M24 Chafee
M26 Pershing

I do not know this background so I cannot comment.

Actually, yes Graham. :lol: :P
I do not know which figures on what list of the several we have batted about are on the final choice list. :oops:
We have actually batted about a good few lists with a good number of figures in the last year or two Graham. :!:

Sort of Mad Max meets Gorka Morka, huh?
Sounds good.
Any Cherry 2000s involved?

A very pleasant taster indeed.
Now, I am just looking forward to more yummy snacks and some delicious meals.

Have a question Graham.

The WWII Americans set was ~10 days behind the schedule set in the June newletter.
That is not too bad as far as schedules set that far in advanced in the gaming world.
My question is, "Has Pulp III will still be out in November or has it moved back to just before Christmas?"

Thanks for everything Graham.
Read you soon!

The Maelstrom set (due out in Oct) will be delayed a while due to licensing checks, but the Pulp III set should be out before the end of Nov, and the Post Apocalyptics before Xmas.

There are other projects on the go, which should also see the light of day before the end of the year...

Thanks! There is a lot going on at the moment, but that of course means a lot of good things being published!
