A grand collectable announcement

From Nick FaLlon

I haver some exciting news, the long awaited Collectors Edition has got the go ahead from Modiphius, and will be re-branded Open Battles (thats the working name for now). The rule book will be compatible with Airfix Battles, but sadly due to lack of interest from Airfix we will no longer be using their name or miniatures. The good news is the rules will be backwards compatible and include rules for an inches table top system that you can use with the existing counters or other representative minis. We have also got approval to release some of the art-work so you can create your own units using the games templates. Alan Paull and I have been impressed by what the comunity have been creating and want to encourage you to continue to create your own units and rules. Along with the Open rules system will be included rules for air forces, beach landing and other long awaited featuers (pending final approval). Thank you for your patience and support without you, these developements probably couldn't have happened.

It's currently being worked on. Thing were on hold while the line was in limbo. You game fans convinced us to proceed with some slight modifications.

wow! good to hear, i have recently purchased aifix battles and the additional card set, and i have been impressed by what i have seen so far, i am a lifelong wargamer and have tried many many rules systems over the years, many of them far too complex, airfix battles for me brings back the fun and flavour of playing with toy soldiers, dont worry about history or if the 1oth kriegsbattalion der sturmtigers has four or five companies of heavy tanks, just chuck all your kit on the table and duke it out, roll the dice and have as much fun as possible, this game brings back fun its a game and games are meant to be fun, looking forward to more, all best to you at modiphius.

Good news! Sometimes the planets don't align as one wishes them to. So I am very glad to hear the game will live on. By the way, "Open Battles" is an excellent renaming. Carry on.
