I'd take space Orkz or Skion.

I'm glad there's still interest in this battle.

I will be updating the post to confirm that sign-ups are suspended. When this gets going I will give preference to the original batch of players if they are still around.

I have begun working on a set of rules for a squad based game. It will likely not follow a lot of fun Brikwars conventions such as secret factions or even have wide angle Overwatch photos. My vision at this time is to not give players any more information than what their character can see at ground level but I will play around with the concept.

I have an update.

As the battlefield was recently finished, its time to get down to business. Only two years later.

This weekend I have some buddies in town and we may play a Brikwar on the battlefield which will allow me to test the concept I’d like to try.

I have abandoned the “defend until overrun” idea because I don’t have the figs and it will be more fun with more players.

Stay tuned for an update in the coming weeks about format and players. The original crop of players will get first dibs, of course.

Thank you everyone for your patience.

This is a fun concept that I also used once. :)

Was it on the forums? I’d love a link so I can review it.

It was the Commandos battle: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=9943&hilit=commandos+wake+up

I'm actually surprised that the pictures are working, minus the banner, of course.

I'd take any available faction if there is one.

I'd like a faction if there are any left, but if not I'm happy to just watch this unfold
