5/25/2003 - The Forum has moved to a new home,  All messages and everything else have been moved so it is the same forum, but with a different look and a different home.

10/20/2002 - One of the supplements close to completion before all the recent news was Raiders and Privateers 2.  This supplement is now available for free for a limited time.  Go here to download it and to give a donation to the freelancers who worked on it but who now will not get paid. It is a 16MB zip file so it may take a while.


10/15/2002 - AOG to close its doors after 10/31/2002

The full announcement is available at the B5Wars forums but it is easier to access at The Miniatures Page.)

Basically, AOG will continue to fill orders on current products until October 31st. Turning Point will not support the company in its current form so AOG as we know it today will close.  Eclipse Games will be created to support the Turning Point and Maxim (GROPOS) game systems. Some of these games will be sold mail-order/electronically only. Miniatures will continue to be sold as they are now. FA2 will probably be converted to this new format first with the Advanced Missions material replacing the construction rules and will be available free on the internet for a limited time. Other projects would be Maxim 2 (changing scale to microarmor 6mm and handle combat from WW2 onward), and a new starship skirmish scale (B5Wars style) game. This game will not be B5 Wars 3rd edition but will draw from what was learned from that product. Other games being looked at include a starfighter combat game, a sci-fi miniatures infantry skirmish game, and an ‘epic’ Warmaster-style fantasy miniature game.

5/27/2002 - The Wars of the Centauri Republic supplement is now available:

WARS OF THE CENTAURI REPUBLIC - Hundreds of years before Babylon 5 was built, the Centauri Republic was known as the "Lion of the Galaxy," controlling dozens of worlds and dominating its region of space. While the people of Earth were still launching space shuttles, the Centauri fought a war with another Galactic power, the Orieni Imperium. Two starfaring nations could not be more opposite in their goals and politics, and conflict between them was inevitable from their first meeting. When the Orieni War finally began, it would change the face of the Galaxy forever! This book includes a complete history of that war, including backgrounds, maps, technology, and over 40 different ships used during the conflict. 92 pages. Showdowns-8 and Variants-6 will support this product. MSRP: $19.95


Also available are several new Dilgar miniatures in FA scale.

10/14/2001 - At B5WARS.AGENTSOFGAMING.COM, in the 'Announcements' forum under the AOG Report from Oct 5th heading, AOG confirms that very few new full scale miniatures will be released in the future.  FA scale minis have out-sold full scale minis 5 to 1 so it is understandable why this decision was made, though AOG will still consider full scale minis in special cases like if they get the rights to make an Excalubur from Crusade.

8/19/2001 - AOG's homepage includes a link to ??? that leads to a JPG of a neat looking swooshy ship and the caption:

"Target coming into range...Scanners locking on...Negative ID...... WHAT IS IT??

A bold new step in the evelution of space warfare

Coming soon from Agents of Gaming"

Could this be the B5 future years product then have mentioned in the past?


8/17/2001 -  No AOG Report this week:

Not much is going on here, actually. Rob is off at a trade show in California, and I've spent the week trying to help get everything ready for next week's release (Wars of the Ancients, Ancients Mega Fleet, Brakiri FA Avioki, Tashkat, Falkosi & Ikorta, GROPOS initial Centauri batch). WOTA made it here OK, and most of the packing is done so we should ship on time. I'll post a real report next Friday. --A1


8/14/2001 - AOG miniatures moving away from blisters towards Squadron Boxes.  The following was posted on the B5WARS.AGENTSOFGAMING.COM forum:

">The Hyach and Cascor are going straight to fa scale? Doesn't this represnt a bit of a departure from the normal practice of putting out B5W scale stuff first then FA later? Will there be FA style stats for the leauge 2 races in the league 2 book?


Yes, it's a departure of sorts.


Here's what's happening: The Hyach FA minis are going to be released in a Squadron Box. They will NOT be sold to stores separately. Why is this? Because stores and distributors have made it plain they will no longer be able to support such a huge line of individual miniatures. GROPOS units being sold in platoons, and not individually, is our first response to this shift in attitude.


Anyone who was at Gen Con or Origins saw how many individual blisters we were selling. These lines are MASSIVE, and stores just don't have the wall space to dedicate to them. After the FA Brakiri, you can expect every FA release to be a Squadron Box of some type.


Now, before you panic, the individual minis will still be available by mail order. If you want a couple of extra Hyach battlecruisers, just hop on line and order them from our secure online store. In fact, you'll probably get a better rate because we won't have the hassle of blister packing them or shipping them to distributors. Oh, and don't forget you get a spectacular deal already with the squadron boxes themselves!


You can expect a similar fate for B5W large minis, though we are waiting to see how successful the Ancients Mega Fleet is before we pass final judgment. That box ships next week and we'll know within a few weeks of that just how well that went over. (By the way, the individual Ancients will also available by mail order if you want one or two of a specific one.) --A1"


11/29/2000 - Robert of AOG posted the following on B5WARS.AGENTSOFGAMING.COM about the future of the B5 Wars universe:

          There are two more major products planned for the current timeline. One of these you've already seen the set-up for in Showdowns IV. The product is current entitled Alliance Contact. It will be the first major war the Alliance must endure and takes place sometime after Crusade would have ended. The raiders that attacked the Minbari Protectorate meet a major power as they flee from pursuit. You will have seen this power in the 5th season (the maintenance tech show). In exchange for intelligence this race gives the raiders safe haven and new ships. Eventually, the combination of the two make their entrance into known space. Of course, the Minbari don't appreciate being the entry way to a new invasion and face the first major threat they've encountered in a long time (Earth was hardly a threat).

          The second product will detail what happens to the Centauri Republic after Veer become Emperor. What I will say is this: a major civil war is involved that splits the Republic (Drakh controlled and non-Drakh controlled). Beyond this, I can say nothing.

          These two products will be setting the foundation for the 2300 series (this is not the actual title, only a place holder). This series will jump 250 years into the future and unfold the new shape of the local galaxy. I cannot say what is going to happen but I will tell you that a new major enemy will be introduced and the techno-mages will return, fleeing from an unknown terror.

          As you can see, we have many plans for the B5W series. The show may be over, but the universe shall prevail.
