Atlantic Digital - Choose the Theme!

Atlantic Digital - Choose the Theme!

We have been preparing for some time now to launch a new product category for Wargames Atlantic: Atlantic Digital! Over the last week or so we've been previewing some of the models, multi-part sets, and characters that will be part of Atlantic Digital. 

Our goal at Wargames Atlantic has always been to make as many highly detailed plastic box sets as we possibly can (37 and counting in three years now)! And we will always be pushing to get more and more of them out to you each month. As we’ve put in place the system we use now to make those hard plastic sets - design, sculpting, Freeform and mold engineering, tooling, injection, packaging, fulfillment, and distribution - we’ve realized we can do a lot more.

We’ve also always wanted to just make MORE STUFF! We have so many ideas and so many talented people that it’s a shame that not everything we design can be made in plastic. Some things are just not right for the plastic production process (too many undercuts or needing too many fiddly parts) and some things maybe can’t justify the enormous expense of mold tooling, mass production, and packaging.

Every month Atlantic Digital will release a mix of new products for all 11 of our current ranges (9 historical ranges, Classic Fantasy, and Death Fields and maybe others as we grow). These products will be spread across the following categories: full multi-part sets, character figures, conversion parts for existing plastic sets, terrain, and vehicles. These will be available in the following formats: 

  • Massive STL file release via a MyMiniFactory Tribe with a monthly membership
  • Individual STL files and file sets sold via MyMiniFactory and soon on our own site
  • Physical manufactured models through Only-Game and soon on our own site
  • Physical manufactured models available through distributors and retailers across the world

This will allow those who print their own miniatures to have access to everything and those who just want physical models to be able to order and receive them in the post just like our plastic sets. 

As part of Atlantic Digital we'll also be asking you to vote on things to make, suggest characters and figure sets or accessories, and generally be a big part of the process. This will let us make more of what you want much more quickly while you wait for each plastic set to be released. And some of the things that start off in Atlantic Digital will also make it into hard plastic sets later (and you'll be part of that too!) 

The first part of this new journey will be launching soon at MyMiniFactory, but in the meantime we want you to tell us where you want us to go next. The first month's release is massive with something for everyone (and much more than we've teased on the Forum and social media). Going forward each month's release will be built around a theme. Help us pick the December 2022 theme below!

Plain naked bodies for conversion. Proper face, hair and hands. Seated, standing, walking, running. Maybe arm options like driving, shooting, pointing etc. For when you need a figure nobody does and have time/skill to ‘dress’ a figure, but not model whole thing from armature/dolly. (E.g., I need various vehicle crew for various armies, but can’t find anything suitable. With something to build on, which is already most of the way there, I could jam a spare helmet on a figure and greenstuff some clothes).

All of the suggestions are awsome I would be happy with any of those the only comment I have is try to continue making sets that are easy to kitbash the fact that I can use Wargames Atlantic parts in nearly anything (and to be honest everything) I do is hands down the best part of the models It makes things so fun to see what you can create in an instant. Just keep up the excellent work honestly you can’t really go wrong at this point. P.S. are the goblins able to ride/fit on and of the new alien bugs? (I’m dying to find out!)

Opposite arms with katar dagger would be nice for afghans and goblins. Solo weapons and shields from frames, mirrored bodies from frames, if they makes sense. Also it would require some programming an application but it would be nice to have shields, banners or shoulder pad generator for prints with custom icons and text on them. (Ready model for shields banner and user just adds in the app a flat svg to add pattern).

Opposite arm with katar dagger for goblins and afghans. One bigger abdomen and head for spiders to use with only larger legs. More spiked head and armor for harvesters version.

There are so many great skirmish games out there right now. You should make skirmish teams as trials for new alien (go seriously nonhuman) and fantasy races. Then those that do well could eventually be made into full hard plastic armies.

I’d like to see Roman themed wolf people.

Rich - November 12, 2022

I would like to see weapons like AK-47, RPG-7 and SA-7, So I arm the Afghan Cavalry when they come out.

I’m very excited your going to offer digital products but please work with a supports company. I’ll get most of your ranges if I can just put them in my machine and print. If I have to spend extra time redoing your supports I’ll look elsewhere.

Ste:

‘Also, Chindits and Gurkhas, I find the campaign in Burma is all but forgotten by most companies, especially in plastic.’

Forgotten? They never knew we were there in the first place. :)

While I think sci fi and modern civilians is honestly my most wanted vacuumed to fill I think that’d be better served as a full boxed release.

My suggestion for digital releases would be vehicles. The universal feel (I hesitate to use the word generic because the kits have too much flavor for that) of yall’s kits lend well to so many uses (wargaming and beyond) that having a more generalized vehicle source (especially for scifi) that was in line with your design scale would fit the same spot perfectly. Having a low cost, better scale and more realistic alternative to some other wargames that will be left un named would be pretty damn great and fill in a void in the market.

25-28mm scale is sorely lacking in choices for good tanka, apps, trucks, cars, and bikes that have a universal appeal and aren’t cartoonists oversized.

And I mean mecha are pretty cool too!
