We all know what is appearing in Wave 1, and we’ve seen some of what will be appearing in wave 2 and 3 already. We can see that with their core set, they are building a range of models that we can eventually build armies around.
We’ve also heard talk about “Campaign Boxes” related to various add-ons and how we’ll see new models and story driven content through those.
When I look at the kinds of content they plan to present, I can clearly see that we’ll see years of models before they start to run out of factions (Raiders coming next, Institute and Enclave on the horizon. I also think it’s likely we’ll see The Railroad given their importance in 4, and New California Republic eventually. Ceasar’s Legion is also likely if they ever create content related to New Vegas too. With two waves a year (I think I heard 2-3 somewhere a while back?) we’d be looking at a couple of years before all of the core factions appeared if they work to push them all out one a wave.) and even when they start to run out of the main factions, there are dozens of smaller factions that might justify a couple of sets as well (Say a small set of 4-5 non-unique models and a set including 2-3 unique models as appropriate. Some of the unique Raider factions, caravan groups, merc groups, Children of Atom, and others all fall into this grouping)
With all of that as backdrop, I’ll get to the thought that spurred me to start this topic:
Earlier today I was playing a bit of Fallout 4. I started the quest “Confidence Man” that involves Travis from the radio station in Diamond City. As I was playing through this quest, I got to thinking about how something like that questline could work in Wasteland Warfare. So instead of a “Campaign Box”, it would be more of a “Quest Pack” with a small number of unique models in it and a small number of Quests that can be string together to tell a short tale.
What does everyone think? Good idea? Meh? Got other ideas for the kinds of expansions we want to see eventually?
Confidence Man Quest Pack:
-Travis Miles (Radio Station Host)
-Vadim Bobrov (Bartender)
-Yefim Babrof (Inkeeper)
-Tower Tom (Raider Leader)
With this set, the player would also likely make use of the Sole Survivor and a Companion, plus raiders from the Raider faction expansion.
Last Voyage of the USS Constitution Quest Pack:
This set would probably make use of settlers as Scavengers, and Mr Handy and Protectron models as Ironsides’ crew.
Pickman’s Gift Quest Pack:
-Maybe a couple of new Raider models just to for the added variety.
Set would make extensive use of the Raiders.
-These kinds of sets would have your usual range of equipment cards (weapons, armor, chems, etc), Unit cards, and those kinds of things, but hopefully have an emphasis on Quest cards and other card types that would give new ways to enjoy the game.
-It would be nice to see a scenario book that could follow the events from the related quest line as well as some new scenarios that follow characters from the related Quest box.
-Now, with all of these minis, it would be possible for Modiphius to issue new cards for existing minis (Bobrov Brothers would have cards and use Settler stand ins. Same with Travis. Raiders could be handled with new cards and use other raider minis as stand ins.) but in all honesty, I’d love to see something like this as an excuse for the minis range to grow.
Those were just a couple of thoughts off the top of my head. Basically, any side quest in any of the games in the series what involve one or more interesting character could justify this kind of set
Anyone else like the idea of these kinds of sets? Anyone have other ideas?
