March of the Metal Horde: Skirmish Maps

For March of the Metal Horde, I plan on including 3 skirmish maps (see below). Their themes are Cyber Collective, Ferans, and Forest respectively. Each map will be 14" x 10" (split into two 7" x 10" sections).

March of the Metal Horde: Counters

Here's one of the counter sheets for March of the Metal Horde. On the top row are the three new character classes and three of the bosses. The rest are samples from the Cyber Collective and Feran factions. Besides 1" counters, there's also going to be 2" ones for the larger creatures/robots.

Expansion Cover & Title

Here's the preliminary cover for the In Harm's Way Tactics expansion, which I'm calling March of the Metal Horde (alluding to the Cyber Collective faction). In the cover you see, from left to right, an Avatar Cutter, Sentinel, and a Ratling Thumper (the latter a member of the Feran faction).

In Harm's Way Tactics Expansion

Although I haven't released In Harm's Way Tactics yet, I have enough material that I've started putting together the first expansion. It will include three new classes: Gordian Brawler, Dahl Elementalist (see pictured), and Human Gunslinger. It will also have two new factions, the Ferans and Cyber Collective, as well as more neutral enemies.

I haven't completely decided when I'm releasing IHWT, but I may wait until the Thanksgiving weekend to give it more exposure. The expansion then would come out during Christmas.

In Harm's Way Tactics: Separate Skirmish Maps

Along with the maps that are included with In Harm's Way Tactics, I wanted to also sell a set of separate skirmish maps. I've been playing around with a stylized look with these (see the WIP below). What do you think of this look so far? Is a more "realistic" look better?
