The implication that dice and miniatures are the focus now is that rules are more or less done (at least the core bits thereof).

It seems like we're marching steadily towards the KS.

The core rules are effectively wrapped up. Minor tweaks and changes, but the team is now on the expansion car packs. Last week, we reviewed a dozen car pack/miniature concepts and they're now working on finalizing the gear/weapons for the packs as the minis work is underway.

Thank you for the update Phil. As an old Car Wars player from the pocket box days (and I'm definitely getting in on the Pocket Box Kickstarter!), I'm greatly looking forward to 6th Ed and getting back into playing. I can't wait for it's Kickstarter to.. er.. start. LOL.

Re: Art on the card upgrade/weapons cards:

- Do we have any idea what the art on the car upgrade/weapons cards will look like?
-Has an artists been chosen?
-Is it anyone who use do do car wars art from the past?

We had seen previews of the car minis, so i wondered if we would have the same stuff for the cards.

We've not yet shared final designs for the cards. Just as soon as we're 100% settled on the approach, then we'll start posting more images.

Just a few more days until the Pocket Box project.

Any shot of Car Wars-themed d6, useful for Car Wars Fourth Edition and any other game requiring standard d6, becoming available if the Car Wars Sixth Edition Kickstarter Campaign is successful? Some ideas for these dice are below.

* AADA Road In Your Sights on the "1" facing.

* Uncle Albert's three-quarter profile on the "1" facing. Uncle Albert Dice should come in the colors of the five Uncle Albert's Catalogs (dark yellow for 2035, fluorescent green for 2036, bright purple for 2038, fluorescent orange for 2039, and black for UACFH). Possibly other colors should be available based on the three Uncle Albert's Catalog Updates previously published in Pyramid Second Edition.

* Car Wars Sixth Edition Dice "Two Wrenches inside a Circle" symbol for the "1" facing.

* Car Wars Sixth Edition Dice Shield symbol for the "1" facing.

* Explosion symbols or Car Wars Sixth Edition Dice "Star" symbols for each of the pips.

* Bullets for each of the pips.
