    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Yeah, I don't get the screen wiper either. I'm trying to work out how it's even meant to be related? Are they going to put their company logo on it or do they just have a box of them lying around the office that needs getting rid of?

    Easy Army currently only has what's in the rulebook/free pdf (I suspect they sued the pdf as their source). They don't have equipment options in yet either but it's early days. Someone's blatantly going to leak the non rulebook cards at some point so it's only a matter of time really. It's annoying for folks like me who were planning on using something like this as the Ogre Palace Defender for my Bassilians..... (not going to use the gun option, obviously).

    Oh they've done a dirty. As I suspected they might. Astute players might have noticed some glaring omissions from the free warbands pdf faction lists. The Basilean warband list, for example, does not contain an entry for Men at Arms (or the Ogre, Abbess or Dictator). Stats cards for these will come with the miniatures but they have been intentionally omitted from the rulebook (as the rulebook warband lists are the same as those in the free pdf). That's slightly annoying as I have a number of fine miniatures from other manufacturers. Mantic have always supported a policy of allowing you to use whatever miniatures you want in their game but now they're holding model profiles back to be supplied with specific figures of their own. A smart business move but still one that's probably going to be pretty unpopular.

    I just looked at the silhouette with my eyes. It looked like someone on top of a dragon's head. When they released the artwork for her I thought to myself "well that looks familiar from somewhere" so I went back to the project's main page to see what it looked like. And it looked like the greyed out figure on top of the dragon's head.

    Hey guys, my rulebook pledge arrived today here in the UK. The cover's a bit dark. Seriously, the picture's barely visible on it. Hopefully you'll all have yours soon too.

    Hmm. Could be tricky. I shook it quite a bit but I have stiff and aching joints in my hands. I'll try again at some point.

    How did you use their paints? Did you add something to thicken them up a bit? I found them really watery and couldn't get any good results with them. They're really nice colours and I want to make them work but I've had no luck with them in the past.

    She also looks exactly like the silhouette sitting on top of the greyed out dragon's head among the images of "more things to come later" about a third of the way down the page. I wouldn't be surprised if the new fantasy diorama stretch goal would be her on the head.

    Pity there's no Irina bust yet.

    Do we know if it's their American website or their European website that's getting the discount?

    For some time now I've been wanting to create "a game of busts". One that I can play with the various fantasy busts in my collection (not many but I could buy more). The most obvious thing to do would be to use them as playing pieces in board games like Talisman but I'd like it to be a board game similar to that lovely old Samurai one with the removable swords where it was all about positioning. The first time a Samurai was defeated his sword was removed. The second time, he was removed from play. I haven't played that in something like 26 years but I still have vague memories. So some sort of specific board game to be played with busts. No idea how it should play 'though.

    That's my gut feeling as well but their FAQ states that ... I have no idea what LSEP means. I reckon it's a formatting thing gone wrong.

    I'm very tempted but cautious. According to the FAQ everything will be in resin. Most of the 35mm figures and 75mm figs already exist in metal. The plastic versions of the 75mm figures that they produced for Duel Fighters were in plastic but with weapons & shields in metal. I'd love it to all be in resin. I don't mind if some elements will be in metal. I just don't want backers to be disappointed later if it turns out that some things won't be in the material that's promised.

    Overall this game looks very pretty but I'm a little concerned by the "dynamic character sheets" being $50 each. That's a pretty big buy in if you're not even sure you'll love the game yet.
