    Lion Tower Miniatures Adventurers Feb 24th

    Yeah. I wasn't expecting mine to arrive so quickly given how bad my local postal service usually is. They only got sent on Monday.

    Zealot Miniatures Litchmyre Dungeon

    I'm trying to remember if there were 6 Fimir in Heroquest or if 3 of them came from the orcs and goblins expansion. Might have only been 3 originally after all.

    Lion Tower Miniatures Adventurers Feb 24th

    My figures arrived in the post today. Lovely sculpts but the shields are so thin that light shines through them (when held up to the light). Perhaps the shields should be made a bit thicker on future miniatures.

    Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project

    Drake 1 as well. I know I only backed the Drake projects for a few figures each but I never received any of them.

    Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project

    I spotted the Torn Armour figures immediately. They were the first thing I thought of when I read the opening pitch.

    Horizon Zero Dawn™ - The Board Game

    And the dog one but if you think that's bad there are some other companies just as deep. The main difference is that Hall or Nothing tend to give better updates & communication so their backers all know what's going on.

    Horizon Zero Dawn™ - The Board Game

    I just don't get this one. There are dinosaurs and cavemen but the dinosaurs are robots and the cavemen aren't really cavemen and it just doesn't make much sense.

    Westfalia - The Dark Eye RPG Miniatures

    The problem I have with The Dark Eye is that it's constantly heralded as Europe's most popular RPG. WFRP. "But The Dark Eye is Europe's Most Popular rpg". Yeah, until brexit happen WFRP still holds that title. "But it's really popular in Germany." Yeah but until it got it's second computer game (which ahd terrible controls) most of us ahd never even heard of it. Basically all the arguments from this game's press team to try and make it look popular still don't make it look any better than WFRP. The art and miniatures look really nice 'though.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    The campaign's done rather well in the final 48 hours. The last minute rush actually manifested quite noticeably with this one. The combination with a Chinese funding campaign feels rather odd to me. I'm glad they'll be combining the funds and stretch goals from both campaigns. Having a second campaign feels odd 'though but it makes more sense if the Chinese government won't let them use kickstarter.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    I'm really tempted by that all in bundle but I need to check my budget first.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    I merely meant that there are a lot of Chinese & Japanese folk in Australia. I do like the back and forth idea of spent fate points essentially being passed to the opponent at the end of the round. It can allow the battle to sway back and forth. I would like to see it in action some more to get a feel for how much it would impact the game.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    Thanks for the clarification. In that case quite a few oriental surnames on the staff list as I previously pointed out.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    Beta rulebook download on the project main page about two thirds of the way down. A gameplay video showing a short sample round and another video explaining a stat card breakdown appear just below the rulebook download. As for the English ... there are quite a few Oriental names on their staff list (and one African surname too, I think Nguyen's African isn't it?)

    I am so blatantly in.

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    Oh thanks. There's been so little information that I'd almost forgotten about the "not Heroquest" project. One project. Their Northmen and Walking Dead project. Not Their Northmen project AND a separate Walking Dead project. You know. The Fireforge one with the "not Night's Watch" and "not White Walkers". Also, major typo. I meant to write September. Not December. See, I don't watch that walking dead tv show. I'll call them dead walkers, gengangers, fleshpuppets, bone dancers, walking dead. Pretty much anything I want really. Anyway, don't Mantic have the Walking Dead miniature game license at the moment?

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    It's not just you. There's a bit of a lull recently. Hopefully we've got Limbo: Eternal War starting tomorrow, then Fireforge will be starting up their kickstarter for Northmen and Walking Dead some time in December but basically there haven't been a lot of good quality miniature related kickstarters recently.

    Nova Aetas: Dark Renaissance Tactical Game

    Well an absolutely humongous box arrived today here in the UK jam packed full of Nova Aetas goodies all for me. I'm very pleased with the outcome. I haven't opened everything yet to check for damaged parts but it's an impressive amount of clubber to sort through :). Reports are coming in of other people receiving their wave 2 packages as well so hopefully we'll soon be able to mark this one as fully delivered.

    Dungeons & Doggies Kickstarter

    Perhaps they could do with an Ovcharka berserker. Those things are huge. Might be some trick photography in that last photo.

    Bear in mind that those are Australian dollars.

    Darklight: Memento Mori

    Hey folks, there's a nice little kickstarter currently running (as in just started today) that goes by the name of Darklight: Memento Mori. It's a fantasy dungeon crawling board game that's heavily inspired by Diablo, Dark Souls & Warhammer Quest. Many have said it's giving off a similar sort of vibe to Shadows of Brimstone so that can't be an entirely bad thing either. The miniatures look nice (in a grim, dark and gritty kind of way). The plans for the board sections and various elements of gameplay look like fun. Feel free to head on over and take a look. Just a look can't hurt, right? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/53406598/darklight-memento-mori-miniatures-dungeon-crawler/description

    Darklight: Memento Mori

    I took my copy down the local club recently. The overall response was that it was a nice little dungeon crawler but that the theme was a bit too weird and people would have preferred a more traditional fantasy setting. It can be fairly brutal to begin with (one character got defeated and lost an arm in the first encounter which made using their ranged weapons much harder then they found throwing daggers and began to do well again).

    Looking for a lean, bare-chested human male...

    Hasslefree also have this one if you don't desperately need him to be topless. Quite a few of Hasslefree's martial artist's range might suit your needs as well. They also have this elf who almost fits your description of a lean body type.

    Brownie minis?

    Hasslefree Miniatures Court of the Brownie King (currently out of stock).
