My 2nd favorite piece is the armor (or tank) piece. and is equally impressive. It just looks like a mean war machine and it was a great design that Todd came up with in a very short time. It was everythign I would have hoped for and then some.
The 3rd piece on my favorites list is the Air (or airplane) piece and again it was designed by Todd. We actaully used a 3D (FDM) printer to print some of these pieces and this one turned out a little different than it appears here and may, at least to some, look better the way it ended up printing out.
It was also Todd's idea to emprint the name of the game on the sides of all the pieces. I think it's great and am really looking forward to someday having pieces manufactured somewhere. There is no doubt from game pieces I have seen for other games that the detail in these small pieces will be moldable.
I have not come across pieces in any other game that use the training mechanism in any such fashion as these and really think it is a novel idea. Todd and I have discussed this in some detail lately and determined that it should be patented. I need to start looking into that and am positioned well for it since Todd already has several patents in his name while working at Intel. Now it's just a matter of finding the time to make things happen. I still need to work with Christina to start a company.
