What is coming up next for this system. Will you move beyond GOT? I have a bunch of 15mm fantasy armies I would like to move over to this system. I like the variety of different troop types in the system vs HOTT.

Doug et al:

I've been getting lots of requests/questions re expanding Fire and Ice.

First thanks to all the players and their kind responses – you can't have a game without players. I've been reviewing feedback and considering what to do next.

In the short run I plan to finish A Game of of the Old World (or Oldhammer for short). This will expand Fire and Ice into the "Old World" and have an historical campaign based on the Hundred Years War and a fantasy campaign based on Warhammer's Old World.

It will cover all the elder races and Old War based human armies that once dominated fantasy gaming. This world was abandoned by the Marketing Bullies, leaving players with lots of armies but no home. I want to help these folks out by creating a game to use their Old World miniatures.

The races will not be generic as in Old Hott and undead will be distinctive in function and army list. Still I hope to retain the playablity and easy rule pick up of the original Fire and Ice.

I'm also getting lots of requests to expand out of the medieval world into ancients – I suspect because of the "Pike Fix" of the old DBX problem that would allow Pike based armies to function better in the DBX world. Still thinking about this…
