    Deep Madness Second Printing Kickstarter

    Can you elaborate? Are the tiles different in this set? (I didn't back the previous one, and want to re-purpose the tiles for RPG's) The tiles are thick cardboard stock (not corrugated), and the print quality was pretty good. They aimed for atmosphere so yes, they're dark. The contrast is high, however, and I didn't have any trouble seeing the art in warm light. I haven't really dug into the rules (since, y'know, I recycled them...) but the tiles didn't come with much of a grid, just occasional lines suggesting zones. They also ran a little small. They're appropriately sized for the game, but not quite the right size for a tabletop RPG. The reprint should, I believe, include the same tiles. They're shown in the breakdown of each pledge level. Mine were a shade darker than what the image suggested on my various screens, but that's hard to get right as a web publisher.

    Deep Madness Second Printing Kickstarter

    I didn't think so, and my eyes aren't great, but if you've lost more contrast than I have I guess I could see it? (ha ha ha. cough.) The tiles seemed all right. I mean, the art is pretty good, but I couldn't repurpose them for other games (which was really my whole goal with this one).

    Deep Madness

    I got mine last night. Magnificent. Some of the detail on the faces in particular is poor, but they're game pieces, so I was expecting some of that. What I wasn't quite expecting (having forgotten the details long ago) was how good some of the little things are for generic sci fi. I wish we'd have gotten several turrets, for example.
  4. I'm not a huge fan of the early Paizo iconics, but for all that they chose my least favorite iconic they're certainly doing it right.

    Horizon Zero Dawn™ - The Board Game

    Yeah, that's trouble. On the other hand... nobody else is making Horizon Zero Dawn stuff. Hmmm. Well, my standard "I'm probably going to forget about this" approach might work if it does eventually get delivered. Hmmmmmmm. Decisions, decisions...

    DGS Games: Thrakansor, Dragon of Fire

    I was sitting here going "Man, has nobody posted this KS? I guess I should figure out how to." If only I'd waited! Hah. I'm still curious about this dragon, though...

    DGS Games: Thrakansor, Dragon of Fire

    DGS Games: Thrakansor, Dragon of Fire About This project creates a resin dragon model for use in the Freeblades Fantasy Miniatures Game in 32mm scale. This model will be sculpted by the amazingly talented Julie Guthrie. You can easily find examples of her work by searching online, particularly her work for Reaper Miniatures. We are extremely fortunate to be collaborating with her on this project. For more information about the Freeblades game, see our website at www.dgsgames.com Your pledge will take this new creature from concept art, to masterful sculpture and then into production to be delivered to our backers. Dragons are denizens of the hidden world of Karelon, an alternate reality separated from the World of Faelon by The Between. There are nine dragons, one for each of the nine energies: fire, water, air, earth, ice, illusion, celestial, void and an energy not yet revealed in our world. Thrakansor is the Dragon of Fire, and devastates Faelon in the opening stages of the BrightSword War. To get a sense of scale of the model, here is the concept art with a human silhouette for reference. That silhouette represents a human-sized Freeblades model 32mm in height. The model will come with a 120mm round resin base. Sometime after all rewards have been delivered, Thrakansor will enter the Freeblades game system with complete rules and be available for use in scenarios that feature a large beast such as Beast Hunt and The Lair. We intend to publish additional scenarios that specifically make use of this model. Interested backers can be part of the playtesting of this model's rules and scenarios. This is a very simple project. We are only making one thing - this beautiful dragon model. There will not be any stretch goals, so the incentive to get us over the funding level rests in your hands. Tell all your friends who might be interested that they can have a large resin dragon model sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the simple pledge of $60. We here at DGS Games would like to take this opportunity to thank our long time friend and Freeblades player Bryan Bledsoe for being the driving force behind this project. Bryan generated sufficient interest in this project for us to take a look at doing it far earlier than intended and it has led us to this point where we are collaborating with one of the world's most renown miniature sculptors to bring a very important new creature into our pantheon. A million thanks Bryan, we would not be here without you. One of the main reasons why this project was not originally on the plate for this year is that we already have a major kickstarter project planned for launch on 1 January 2019 in which we will create two entirely new factions for the Freeblades game. Please follow us and watch for more information coming soon. ========================== A kickstarter to fund a Julie Guthrie dragon seems like something that would have been posted everywhere, but I hadn't really heard anything about it until just before it launched. Is there any other news out there? WIP maybe? The concept art isn't making me particularly excited, but... a new Guthrie dragon!

    Horizon Zero Dawn™ - The Board Game

    I'm totally in for this one. And yeah, I'm basically in just for the miniatures. But I'm okay with that!

    Reapercon BoGW?

    I also would love to see some more non-mini-related Reaper treasures. Since we missed this Reapercon, I'm probably in for the BoGW too.

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    May 2013? Not by that much. That is also a really long time ago. Terrain Crate has been funded since May 14th, 2017... huh, that's even newer than Deep Madness. (I might be getting those two at about the same time! Ugh that might actually be a storage disaster.)

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    Hmmm. My oldest outstanding was funded September 13, 2012. Got a message about that one a year or so ago, but I think it's dead. On the other hand, I still have an active kickstarter that was funded October 28th 2012. They had to go back to the trough for a second run and I expect the market has passed them by, but they're still going.

    Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures

    We backed the project and are somewhat early on the backer list (although less early on finishing the pledge manager). Haven't received anything yet, although we're expecting to from both waves 1 and 2 If it meant our resin had fully cured by the time it got here, I'd happily take it... it's not like the problems with a Ninja Division kickstarter were a surprise. We were already expecting to get everything late late late.

    Siri could use thoughts/prayers

    Glad to hear the kid's okay.
