    Right now I'm keen on starting a regular mini's gaming group.

  1. I believe the @Clearman box has finished at @Guindyloo's, though she hasn't posted any pictures. Come to think of it, I don't think we've seen any pictures from the Clearman box for the last couple of people.

    Confrontation: Classic

    Mini vs Mini is going to be a lot more solid evidence of infringement than mini vs concept art. I know GW lost several parts of a case involving the latter, though it's been awhile since I've looked at the art GW claimed the other company's minis were infringing upon, so i don't remember how close they were. I know that GW claimed it was infringement largely because they had stats for those models in the game, but the court didn't accept the argument. Their failure to release a mini for the published stats made it harder on them. I would think that Stellar/SD would be aware of that when making their own case to KS. Then again, like you said, they don't need to prove it to the same level with KS as they would in the courts. It will be interesting to see if they follow through with a lawsuit and really spend money pursuing it. One one hand, if there is true infringement, they do have to pursue it to protect the value of the Confrontation license. OTOH, spending money on a lawsuit could threaten fulfillment of the Confrontation KS. Will it come down to a "Well guys, we can finish fulfilling the KS as soon as we win this IP infringement case and get our money from them."?

    Tabletop War game Turn ...

    I'm currently working on a system that has card activation similar to Warlord, but uses leaders in a similar manner to Warmaster. Leaders don't really fight, but instead use abilities to make other units more effective. One of the key abilities in the game will be called suppression, which is similar to 40k's overwatch (at least 40k's 2nd edition overwatch - I haven't played since then). It is used by units to control the battlefield.

    Hmm. I wonder if SD/Stellar are/were somehow blaming the LoS KS for negatively affecting their own? Hmm. I wonder if SD/Stellar are/were somehow blaming the LoS KS for negatively affecting their own?

    What makes you think we want our pictures taken?

    I was thinking about that - SD hasn't gotten their money from KS yet, and likely won't get it for a few weeks yet. So if it was them, they're not (currently) spending any KS money. It could also be completely unrelated - IIRC, Cadwallon already has questionable ethics with IP, so it's not out of the question that they didn't properly pay or credit an artist.

    I believe it. It's similar for me - but in my case, part of it is spending all day on the phone and chat sessions with people. By the time the day is over, I just don't want to connect with someone unless it's face to face.

    Well that is certainly an interesting development...

    And it funded. This morning when I checked it they were nearly down to 390k, but finished back up at 403k. I hope those backers get their product.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Holy Guacamole! The company I've been contracting to for the last 11 years just informed me that I will be receiving a sizable contract bonus! now I can afford all the Bones IV things I want!

    Confrontation: Classic

    And when I checked it this morning, their funding total is now less than they pulled on the first day - currently 437k versus the 440k they got the first day. I also learned that per KS policy, you cannot decrease or cancel your pledge in the last 24 hours of a campaign IF it would cause the project to defund. Well, you can, but you have to contact KS customer support to do it for you. I don't think they'll lose enough in pledges for that to happen though. But who knows.

    Confrontation: Classic

    they're up to 23k lost today. Less than 2.5k until they're less than the 440k they made in the first day.

    Confrontation: Classic

    I noticed that, too - but over 900 backers are a single euro - if you take them out of the mix, the average pledge for the rest is 309. Looks to me like there are 900 people sitting there waiting to see what happens, either before the campaign ends, or like myself, someone who wants bleacher seats to the train wreck.

    this project is less than 10 thousand euros away from dropping below it's first day funding total.

    I felt this comment in the KS comments section summed up the situation fairly well:
