Modiphius is making a Fallout game, see here: http://www.modiphius.com/fallout.html Right now there isn’t much to see but you can sign up for the newsletter.
Sigh, seems like another game i might need, anyone up for a bank job/hold-out
A little bit more on facebook: https://m.facebook.com/Modiphius/photos/a.352887401421054.80411.348868008489660/1397949986914785/?type=3
YESSSSSS! BoW work your magic and bring us the low down on this game!
Think @johnlyons will be all over this, renders look nice interested to see how the ip translates to tabletop…
This is great. I’ve ordered a copy of the new Osprey game, Scrappers, cos I thought it would be a good Fallout proxy, but now this!
A message for Modiphius: please, PLEASE make minis of Twig, Scarlett and Ben from the Nuka Break series!
As a massive Fallout fan, i will be all over this . And i second what @felixpike says, those 3 need to be represented in the game.
God damn it. Looks like I picked a bad day to give up Kickstarters
Modiphius put a couple of comments on Facebook about the game. It’s not going to be on Kickstarter, and the models will be resin and produced in the U.K. (And it won’t be Prodos).
Wonder if this will help or hinder the other post apoc games like this is not a test, and wreck age. A lot of people got into them for a fallout proxy.
Got a mail today:
LONDON, ENGLAND (April 26, 2017): Modiphius Entertainment, publisher of the Star Trek, Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles, Conan, Infinity and John Carter of Mars roleplaying games, is thrilled to announce today that Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, the first tabletop miniatures game based on the Fallout universe, is currently in development and is set to release November 2017.
In Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, players will build their own crew from a wide range of factions, allies and iconic characters from the Fallout series, and play in apocalyptic games of 3 – 30 high quality 32mm scale resin miniatures through a huge variety of iconic scenery and settlement buildings, from the Red Rocket to Sanctuary Hills, Nuka- Cola vending machines and wrecked vehicles. Settlements will include buildings, defenses and resources that impact the crew’s army list and abilities in the wasteland.
Fallout: Wasteland Warfare will include an entire narrative campaign arc as well as unique random missions with narrative-style objectives, and Crew Caps recovered in missions can be used to improve the crew’s perks, weapons, gear, and upgrades for the next encounter. In either Player vs. Player, or Tournament mode, players will try to survive the tabletop wasteland.
The game will also come with a customizable solo-play AI deck to control enemies that play to their strengths and replicate a faction’s tactics while attempting a narrative mission or perfecting settlement-building strategy. Players can also team up with a friend to defend a larger settlement or explore narrative missions in cooperative games against AI forces or the post-apocalyptic dangers of the wasteland.
“Like many I’ve been experiencing the wasteland for years through the different Fallout video games and always wanted to recreate the skirmishes and bigger battles on the tabletop,” says Chris Birch, publisher, Modiphius Entertainment.
Organized Play packs will be available at launch to retail stores, organizers and gaming groups.
Fallout: Wasteland Warfare will be available for pre-order in the summer.
Please help share the picture of the Sole Survivor and Dogmeat on our Facebook page
Sadly it doesn’t included the pictures here, but except for the picture of the Survivor + Dogmeat there was nothing new to see. But that is now also on their Fallout gaem page: http://www.modiphius.com/fallout.html and on Facebook https://m.facebook.com/Modiphius/photos/a.352887401421054.80411.348868008489660/1403408833035567/?type=3&refid=17&_ft_=top_level_post_id.1403408833035567%3Atl_objid.1403408833035567%3Athid.348868008489660%3A306061129499414%3A69%3A0%3A1493621999%3A7618883989585931315&__tn__=E

I had a quick chat with Chris from Modiphius games about their new Fallout game at Salute 2017.
Modiphius answerde some questions over at dakkadakka:
Alpharius wrote: So, not Prodos then?
Modiphius: Hi I can confirm it’s definitely not Prodos. We’re using a UK casting company who do very good quality resin production. They’re also used by Hawk Wargames if that helps
Siygess wrote: Cool stuff. I wonder if we will see any of the companion characters from the Fallout games? That would be pretty neat.
Hey Modiphius, have you considered partnering with someone for some official terrain? If not, then TTCombat might not be a bad idea – they do resin casting too, so could easily (and cheaply!) do hybrid MDF and resin kits.
Modiphius: Funnily enough yes we are and we have and the Red Rocket terrain set you’re going to see is simply bloody brilliant the guys we’re doing it with have done an incredible job. Following will be lots more awesome sets to build your wasteland. There will be buildings and lots of resin accessories such as nuka cola machines, rusted cars, work benches and consoles etc.
Paradigm wrote: I wonder how this game is going to have the various wildlife function; it doesn’t really make sense to have them as a playable faction, but they could work well as an AI card controlled ‘third faction’.
You could be in the middle of a shootout over some loot and a Deathclaw shows up to ruin your day, something like that could totally change the dynamic of the game as both sides then have a much bigger problem than each other.
Modiphius: There will be an AI deck plus at the moment every set comes with specific AI cards for that faction or units so the AI is always customised based on what you’re facing. We’re looking at narrative AI stuff as well. Perhaps Raiders are more sneaky so they pop out of the nearest ruins. And yes there will be Deathclaws… lots of them
Yodhrin wrote: One thing I’d like to know – it’s clear that the initial release will pretty much be “Fallout 4 – The Not-video Game”, which is fine and expected since you’ll want to tap into the most recent buzz and Bethesda no doubt want the license to promote the game they’re presently selling. But. Assuming the game does well, will we be getting “proper” Fallout at some stage? If not the original couple of games, then maybe at least New Vegas themed stuff? The new games aren’t bad or anything, but they just don’t have the same feel as the old radioactive desert setting.
Modiphius: There’s a lot in Fallout 4 to keep us busy but we’ve already got eyes on factions in Fallout 3 and we’ve access to 1 and 2 for stoyline and factions when we need it. We don’t want to swamp everyone with options (and stores just won’t carry everything) so we have to roll them out slowly. There will be 3 good factions at launch, then more following and one of those is the Wastelanders which is like your settlement with Sturgess, Mama Murphy, Preston Garvey, the Sole Survivor etc. There will be lots of allies sets if you want to focus on them or you can team them up with one of the main factions. Anyway yes – older Fallout stuff hell yes just give us time. We’re doing a survey next week if you’re signed up to help tell us which factions, characters, scenery etc you MOST want to see first so will be a good change to get heard. I’m a big believer in checking that what we think is a great idea is actually what you all want too.
endtransmission wrote: Enquiring minds want to know if we can play as Liberty Prime too
Modiphius: Make a massive resin robot that you could only use with giant battles ….? What do you think the answer is I will be the first one testing 50 Deathclaws against 100 Brotherhood of Steel just because. Wait for that video playthrough.
Dakka Flakka Flame wrote: Weapon sprues would be amazing! I figure it will be easy enough to paint many of those bases up with a desert look, or maybe add some extra sand to the more urban ones. The nice thing about concrete is that it is plausible in pretty much any region.
Modiphius: Yes we’ll put weapon and gear sprues for modders together for month 2 or 3 once the figure sets are all set up. There will also be scenic bases with the peg holes filled for those who want to customise (the models all have pegs in the feet to slot them quickly in to the bases).
We are considering a hard plastic sprue for the sole survivor (male / female) with lots of options as I figure this could be the one everyone would want. However – you’ve got to be really careful with hard plastic a it’s very easy to really screw up (I’m sure many of you can think of good examples of that), and spend a lot of money not getting it right. We want to give you really beautiful resin figures first and then look at expanding from there. We’ll likely bring this up in the survey and spend time getting it right if we decide to do that.

Settlement, you say? Interesting…will you mark this settlement on our map for our convenience?
Modiphius: Well of course you’re going to create your own version of Sanctuary Hills, on paper and or cards you can create various resources that benefit your battles but when it comes to fight a defense game you translate your Caps in to an actual base. Did your buddy try his luck with Supermutants last time against your defences? Maybe go for more gas powered turrets this time, a few exploding cars? Maybe it’s better to get more cover in case he’s thinking more long range firepower. Each game you can try a different strategy - you don’t lose stuff if you lose the game. This is one of the bits I’m personally interested in alongside the AI side of things. There’s going to be a ‘set’ that digs deep in to base building and defenses. I better not say too much more as the design team will give me hard stares after the weekend as it is haha!
Well, I had written this game off untill I saw the bit about the original Fallout’s (spent most of my youth living and breathing the original two). I shall keep an eye on it then. just a shame its not closer to 28mm as i could use proxies for TNT to go along with my current mini’s.
Form Gamer Feed (http://www.gamer-feed.com/2017/05/06/chatting-about-fallout-wasteland-warfare-with-chris-birch/):
Gamer Feed: How long has Fallout: Wasteland Warfare been in development? Chris Birch: Since October last year. Gamer Feed: Who make first contact about doing a miniatures game, based on the Fallout universe? Chris Birch: I did – it’s something I’ve always wanted to do and have been chatting to Bethesda for a while now. Gamer Feed: With the factions, from looking as the i models provided, there is Brotherhood of Steel, Super Mutants, and the Lone Survivor with Dogmeat. Is there any others faction that will be brought into the game? Chris Birch: Yes you can expect to see the Raiders, the Institute and others over time. The Lone Survivor will be part of the wasteland survivors faction which includes various allies and character. Gamer Feed: With the scenery, you showed a resin Nuka-Cola vending machine. Will the settlement buildings and wretched vehicles be in resin also, or be made of a different material? Chris Birch: Things like machines, vending machines, crates, rusted cars etc will be in resin, whilst we’ll also have clip together pre-coloured card buildings that can be played right out of the box. Gamer Feed: With the game it self, will it be played on a table top similar to Warhammer 40k or Warmachine, or use a board similar to Achtung! Cthulhu? Chris Birch: It will be playable on a 3x3ft or 4 x 4ft wargame table like warhammer.
Gamer Feed: Can you provide a example of how perks will work in the game? Chris Birch: Perks will be something you purchase with caps as your leader develops and give benefits to the leaders or their crew.
Gamer Feed:With combat, will the game use a dice based mechanic or a card based mechanic? Chris Birch: It’s dice based, we’ll be discussing more about that soon.
Gamer Feed: In Fallout, sometimes when your fight a enemy, a wild animal might show up and accuracy you also. Will there be any random events like this in the game? Chris Birch: Yes you have the option of including wasteland creatures which are run by an AI deck and they might attack either player. You can also have other factions show up controlled by the AI deck.
Gamer Feed: Did the scope of the project change over time? Chris Birch: Yes there’s been a lot of changes over the development period – some of it to simplify the rules, some of it to add more Fallout flavour. It’s pretty much stayed the same scale though for 3-30 figures, though we’re not making sure we can have bigger battles too.
Gamer Feed: Others games you have created has a Kickstarter to launch the game. What was the decision to skip Kickstarter for launching this game? Chris Birch: We wanted to get the game out quickly, and so decided to invest a lot of time in getting the game in to development, then run a pre-order and launch with the first factions.
Game Feed: What is the MSRP of the game? Chris Birch: We’re currently working on this.
Gamer Feed: When players build a crew, will they be limited to there factions, or will they be able to build a crew out of mixing factions? E.G. Brotherhood of Steele fighting along side Super Mutants. Chris Birch: You can decide to play a narrative game where you’re limited to allies based on the storyline, or you can play anything goes where you might mix and match just the cool figures you want together.
Gamer Feed: Will there be a Super Mutant Behemoth in the game? Chris Birch: Oh yes!
Because many people aksed there will be a 2 player starter set right from day one, also you will be able to download some scenarios and campaigns for free from their website, bigger campaign expansion will be sold.
Caharcters from Fallout 4 that are said to appear in the game:
Sturges – A Third Generation Synth Preston Garvey – The Minute Mens Senior Officer Ronnie – A Veteran Servicewoman in the Minutemen Mama Murphy – A Clairvoyant Chem Addict. How fun. Piper – A Skilled Reporter. Not someone I would call on in a battle, but that’s just me. Paladin Dance – Brotherhood of Steel Paladin Elder Maxson – Brotherhood of Steel Elder, descendent of Arthur Maxson Lancer-Captain Kells – Brotherhood of Steel, Captain, Prydwen Knight-Captain Cade – Brotherhood of Steel, Medical Officer, Prydwen Dr. Zimmer & Armitage – The Institute, last seen in Fallout 3 Allie Filmore – The Institute, Chief Engineer Alana Secord – The Institute, Synth Retention Bureau Curie – Vault Tec, Contagions Vulnerability Robotic Infirmary Engineer Boomer – The Raiders, Leader of a Raider group at Outpost Zimonja Ack Ack – The Raiders, a Minigun wielding Raider, Satellite Station Olivia Sinjin – The Raiders, a Ghoul who holds the rank of Leader Hancock – Neutral, a Ghoul who resides as Mayor of Goodneighbor An X6-88 Courser Synth – The Institute, high-end killing machines Strong – Neutral, a Super Mutant with a literal mind
And something about the 2 player starter:
“Yes there will be a 2 player starter set with pre-assembled minis (in two colours of plastic) likely in a hardened PVC – BUT I’ll stress that you’ll already be able to get those same minis in high quality resin so this box set is aimed at people who aren’t necessarily wargamers, who don’t mind the difference, and who want to be able to play out of the box.
Shadow Captain Edithae wrote:By PVC, do you mean the same plastic that Zombicide the Black Plague is made out of? I’m painting up my friend’s Black Plague core set as a sort-of *practice commission* and MY GOD DO THE BENDY SWORDS MAKE MY SKIN CRAWL No it will be a hardened PVC – you could say more like the Walking Dead minis as a guide. That’s what we’re aiming for anyway. No bendy laser rifles here….
Now we will likely do a 2 player starter bundle in the pre-order so it’s a good deal on getting two starter sets etc. In retail we’ll see what we can do – I think we’d prefer people can buy the factions they want rather than force a set on everyone. The Plastic 2 player set is really aimed at people who just want to get it quickly and it’s got everything you need. ”
So I don’t like it if the 2 player starter minis are of less quality than boxes and blisters and single faction starters and I’m not a big PVC fan.
