Post subject:  which faction to choose?

Hi guys, so a massive order from prodos games came in to my local shop just the other day, but as I've not had a proper look to see what's there or here to even see what the factions cover, I thought I'd ask here,
So what types of forces can each faction run?

So, getting WZR on top of AVP, nice. Is that the place in Edinburgh you talked about on the AVP ks Board?

Each force has it's own unique flavour, but each force can also be somewhat adapted to the play style of the individual gamer. Some forces are stronger in hand to hand, ie Mishima. Others are stronger in ranged, ie Bauhaus or Capitol. Dark Legion can pull off horde armies with the Undead Legionnaires. To be honest, grab the downloads and give them an intense go through. Check out the models in the online store and figure out what you like in terms of appearance. Grab the army you like the looks of and see what it has to offer. To use myself as an example, I went nuts for Bauhaus with 1st ed warzone and have stuck with it. It offers strong ranged, some good close combat, and a few nice tricks with the special rules.

Just to start though, what style of play do you prefer. Stand back and pulverize, up close and personal, or a swarm of face-eatiness? Answer that and we can take it further.

Yeah the very same shop and as they got in 2+ of each starter plus blisters of almost everything from what I saw it'd be easy to get a force going,
I like the look of different units/models from the ranges and unless I'm wrong no chance to mix between factions?
Mostly into imperial looks wise! But as I enjoy a adaptive force balanced to counter everything with lots of cross over in units to cover any losses with a very mobile approach to get my fire power were I need it.
So basically I have no clue till I find the downloads!

Thats correct, as it stands right now there is no mixing for the most part. But armies have to come from one list. ... l_v1.0.pdf

Heres the Imperial pdf, download it and give it a go through. If you decide to go that route, I suggest getting 2 starters to begin. That will give you 2 big squads of Trenchers, the rank and file troops, each with a NCO. It will also give you 2 officers that will act as custom character potential, 1 as a warlord and 1 as a lord. That will also give a pair of Greyhound LAFVs, baby tanks that can fill gaps as needed.

Effectively, the foundation of an army. After that, consider the Blood Berets and the Golden Lions. The Hurricane walker is also a fantastic looking piece and should be a blast on the table. If you couldn't tell, Imperial is going to be army number 3. Heres my shopping list.

2x Starters
2x Blood Berets
2x Golden Lions
1x Hurricane
1x Rist

Anything else I can help with, please ask.

Good choice! I became enamored with Imperial after purchasing the Fury of the Clansmen offshoot from Siege of the Citadel. I dipped my toes into Capitol and Dark Legion until Imperial fleshes out some more. What they have right now is a great start for developing a army that suits your playstyle. Presently, I will only be using 2 Doomtroopers from the Imperials to supplement my Capitol forces.

I am wondering if anybody's seen/has any of the concept/model pics for everything as 2 heros, 2 vehicles and 3x5man units is a bit light from what's in the list.

Also planned releases and dates?
