In 2085, armored warfare is faster and deadlier than ever. Hovercraft, tanks, and infantry slug it out with tactical nukes. But the most feared weapon of all needs no human guidance. It's a giant cybernetic tank bristling with guns and missiles.

Did someone say "Ogre playmat?"
Some eagle-eyes noticed a little gem hidden in CW6e update #125 that was confirmed in a recent twitter post. There is a new Orange Map playmat on the horizon.

That's not an accident; a lot of inspiration for the new playmat layout came from the old board design.

In Case You Missed It
Here is a retransmission of the State of the Line from December 2021. I missed getting this up on the website when it was originally sent in December.
As we close out 2021, it's time to take a look at where we are, and where we are going.
As you know, the activity has been low while we all battle on multiple fronts; but that doesn't mean progress has halted. Since the last news transmission, Ogre Miniatures Set 3 has been delivered, the Steam version of Ogre has received a couple of updates, and Ogre is being brought to Gameboard.
There's also been a changing of the guard at the Ogre Line Editor position. I am honored to have the opportunity to try and fill some very big shoes left behind by Drew. We would not be anywhere close to where we are today without his tireless efforts over the last few years. Thank you for everything, Drew. Many of you already know me from various forums, but you can read my bio on Daily Illuminator to get a little glimpse behind the blast doors.
Ogre Miniatures Set 4 lumbers forward as we continue to review designs; NAC units are coming.
Ogrezine 3 is still on, but I need your help! I know several of you out there have continued to express interest in a third installment, and have something to contribute. Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to review the Writer's Guidelines
Happy Holidays and see you in the new year.
