I’m happy to report we’re ready to start running another round of playtests with the 2 additional armies we’ve created for Ars Victor: the Hive Army and the Machine Army.

Since so many of us are spread so far across this world, we’re going to use Tabletop Simulator, available on Steam, to facilitate playtesting moving forward. If you already have the game installed, you can go ahead and subscribe to the Ars Victor workshop mod we’ve added to the store.

The workshop mod has everything from the original game as well as 2 new rows for the new Armies. A short explanation detailing the 2 new abilities for some Hive Army units is also posted in game.

If you haven’t done so already, please join our new Steam Group, Trip West Playtesters. We’ll be using this to coordinate official events and playtests, and it’s great way to find other Ars Victor players out there to battle with.

We’d like to get some organized playtests scheduled to increase turnout and get quicker, more reliable feedback on how the units are working out. I was thinking a weeknight, between Monday and Thursday, starting around 7PM Pacific and going from there. Please sound off in the comments what nights and times you can break away from the real world and play some Ars Victor! We’re going to try and accommodate as many people as we can.

Thank you everyone for all your help in making this happen.
