You may have heard that PP are making at big announcement at Templecon this weekend, like they did last year for Colossals.

I have 2 questions:

1) Who's getting up at 4am to watch the live announcement
2) What do you think it is?

TempleCon Keynote Live Stream Cancelled

We regret to announce that we must cancel the live stream of our TempleCon 2013 Keynote presentation.

Unfortunately, all of our A/V equipment has been lost in transit by our freight carrier. Rest assured that we will still be presenting our Keynote in person at TempleCon as scheduled, and we will be making the pre-recorded video portions of the presentation available on our website after 10:30 AM EST, tomorrow morning, 02/01/2013. If our equipment does arrive in time for the Keynote we will endeavor to present the event as originally planned.

Please accept our sincere regret and apologies for this disappointing news.


apparently no one has a webcam with a wireless conection

Rules seem interesting so far, models are a bit disappointing in my opinion.

I love the 30's scifi look of the jacks, and the new rules mechanics with passing along focus and warcasters handing out mat and rat to all their jacks. I'm tempted to get a battlebox for demo's. 8)

They do look very interesting. Totally different look to any other faction. Must not submit to faction add...

I wonder if they'll be as good at running jacks as Menoth? The field marshals and focus passing are sweet rules for big battle groups.

Fluff wise they should be, one would imagine they would have good tech like Ret with good focus manipulation like Menoth.
