  1. Heresylab - Scifi Heresy Girls - Miniature Set

    @rolljordan Please check your mailbox as I've PM'd you.
  2. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    Whoops. Of course you're the exception Cash.
  3. Tech advice needed for i5 phone

    Wish I could help. I have an iPhone 5 but as far as I'm aware it's magic and runs on pixies and fairies. Sorry.
  4. ShipWorks 3d Printable Ship Terrain

    Fixed that for you.
  5. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    I was happy enough with what I already have for modern Zombicide, and Mantics The Walking Dead has become my go to game for modern zombies now. Wasnt interested in the fantasy version, but I was hoping for something scifi. Never was a fan of Cthulhu heads when they were put in a robe for D&D: Or dressed up as a pirate: Or made their appearance in Doctor Who: I don't know why in space they're naked.
  6. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    I dunno. Not sure how I feel about Cthulhu headed space aliens.
  7. Heresylab - Scifi Heresy Girls - Miniature Set

    I'm curious where you found that name as the only person listed on HeresyLabs Facebook page is Antonius Coil who it says manages HeresyLabs and that he lives in Mannheim Germany. Edit: that's interesting. I see the name Christian Kirylo now appears under the Full Bio page of the kickstarter. Would've sworn no name was listed there earlier.
  8. Heresylab - Scifi Heresy Girls - Miniature Set

    I really don't like being negative and I've supported a lot of new companies... but I've backed enough kickstarters to be a bit cynical and wary. Especially of people who repeatedly state how much experience they have in the miniature industry yet give no examples of what they've done or who for. $60/$65 for 12 resin minis. That's roughly $5 for a resin mini. Thats a questionably low price for a good quality mini. The kickstarter gives a location of Chicago, IL for the project. It also gives a location of South Milwaukee, WI as the location of HeresyLab, the projects creator. Facebook lists only one person as a team member for HeresyLab, presumably the project creator, and he lives in Mannheim Germany. Makes me wonder where the minis are being made and where are they shipping from? Speaking of shipping. A quote from the project creator on the kickstarter comments: "I see several Canadians backing, maybe we can combine all in one order and have a backer receiving it, clear customs once with a lower value (I may pay for customs at this point) and have him use Canadian Mail to sort them internally to Canada. Just need a volunteer :) who will get some freebies of course for the help." I don't understand this at all. It's been my experience that small orders going through Canada Post often have no Customs or handling fees. I can guarantee you that a large order, especially one going through DHL as the project creator stated this would be, is going to be charged exorbitantly high fees. And some random backer will be receiving, sorting through, and sending out all the Canadian orders? What could possibly go wrong? To be clear. I'm not saying anyone connected to the kickstarter has sinister intentions, but... At best, there seems to be an air of naivety about this.
  9. Grenadier Cleric, 2018 and yesteryear

    I quite like your idea for this thread. Always enjoy seeing the older minis painted up and your comparison makes it even better.
  10. It ain't over until the credit cards been charged and that's been done. Now the real waiting begins.
  11. I've backed a previous Blackwater Gulch kickstarter and been pleased with what I received.
  12. 2 hours left to go on this.
  13. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    Oh yeah. I went in for two boxes of Sedition Wars during that kickstarter. Might as well do something with those minis. Or I could proxy the Star Saga minis, or some of those I have from Countetblast, or even Reapers scifi soldiers minis. Or just wait for Bob Naismiths scifi soldiers coming out later this year.
  14. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    Oh dear. This is way too 40Kish in design for me. Not a fan personally.
  15. Heresylab - Scifi Heresy Girls - Miniature Set

    Unless specific examples are given of his design/sculpting/manufacturing experience in the miniatures industry, I wouldn't even consider backing. I've been burned before.
  16. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    As someone who only backed the first two Zombicide kickstarters, I'm not sick to death of them yet.
  17. I'm guessing it's a demand thing. Everyone wants the new shinies while the old shinies sit tarnishing on the shelf.
  18. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    The midway at the Calgary Stampede still had a few sideshow attractions when I was little. The headless woman, the caveman frozen in ice, Bonnie and Clydes bullet riddled car along with graphic photos of their bodies. Other attractions too. Geeze that stuff creeped me out.
  19. Going through checking statuses on old kickstarters when I came across this one again. Anyone here get their dice? Anyone here still waiting? Have to admit I'm surprised that in the 2 years leading up to the kickstarter that the project creator mentioned they spent in development of these dice, that the difficulty and length of time to manufacture these dice was never realized. Looks like the project creator is still sticking with it so I give her props for that.
  20. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    Updated the first post with a bit more info. I stopped collecting Zombicide games after the original Zombicide, Prison Outbreak, and Toxic City Mall, so I kinda feel that I'm about due for another round. Plus I've long been looking for a good scifi crawler. I've Mantics Star Saga game but I'm thinking this will be quite a different experience.
  21. Down to the final 43 hours. Still about $1100 away from reaching funding.
  22. How Did You Learn To Play?

    Girls. Well, that was the initial spark anyway. Much like Dr.Bedlam I had read articles in newspapers and magazines about this new fad in college campuses, D&D, where people would play adventures going through dungeons encountering fantastical creatures and making decisions that affected how the story went. This was the late '70's and I was still in High school. I was intrigued, but didn't really understand roleplaying and was much more into scifi at the time anyway. Hadn't read much fantasy. Hadn't read The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. Didn't know anybody who knew anything about D&D. Then one day in history class I overheard some of the cool kids sitting near me talking about getting together to play a game. Like a boardgame or something. It seems they met and played at each other's houses regularly. It was a couple of guys and, 2 or 3 girls. One girl in particular whom a very shy and nervous Darsc really wanted to get to know better. The game of course was... Diplomacy. I had no idea what the game was about but I knew I needed to learn how to play so I could join the group and get to know girls. Well one girl in particular. Took the bus to the mall after school. Went to toy stores, book stores, department stores... Nobody had this game. Then I remembered this one really odd store that I had wandered into once. It was full of games that I had never heard of so I'd never been back. Went to the odd store and of course, they didn't have Diplomacy either. But they did have this: (Pic of my actual boxed set) Bought it. Read it. Started reading a lot more fantasy. Finished High school. Found a FLGS that was putting people who were interested in learning to play D&D together with experienced DM's to teach them and after our first adventure I became the regular DM for that group. My first of many D&D groups. Never did join the group of Diplomacy players. Never did get to know that girl. Ironically one of the guys from that Diplomacy group joined my AD&D group years later. And I did run into that girl again. There's more to the story, but I think I'll stop it there.
  23. From their Facebook page it looks like the kickstarter is looking good for a Friday launch. Plus more teaser pics and a bit more info: "Roughly 25 brand new kits, plus a few old favorites - and bunches of big bargain bundles. This is going to be our greatest Kickstarter **EVER**!"
