    This - from my perspective some of the names and descriptions were more of an issue than the actual sculpts

    Secret Weapon - Tablescapes Dungeons: Mines

    Regretably at least half the Australian friendly kickstarters I'm aware of use this particular company to send things out. As was pointed out to me in the comments there was another convention this weekend just gone that i wasn't aware of. My perceptions of the company are biased due to other dealings I've had with them outside of kickstarter fulfullment. Once they get things running with kickstarters they are usually pretty good

    Unfortunately the AU distributor is rather full of it, the convention referred to is one of the smaller ones, and they'll only have a minimal stand there (unless something has changed since i last looked at the trader map for wintercon). I think they're just too busy with other project fulfillment

    What makes a good war game ?

    I think the problem with the pointing out a completely new force issue is that every time I've seen it done there have been significant balance issues as certain abilities, equipment etc. are worth varying amounts depending on the other abilities, equipment etc. that model may also have - for some of these (such as a long-range rifle is much more valuable in the hands of a model with a better shooting skill) there are blunt instrument ways of fixing it, but other things require many more complex tables and flowcharts to determine exactly how two abilities may interact (and doing some software testing recently, i can guarantee that players will see an overpowered combination that you won't necessarily see when testing). That said, Counterblast did have rules around generating your own characters from preexisting templates - so not completely flexible, but there was some ability to customise exactly what you had.

    Project cancelled/failed to fund, they've gone for pre-orders on their website instead - look at the latest update for details. This includes the fae archer, which apparently is a 70mm model...

    In my opinion, unless you're playing tournaments, any rule set can be model independent, but that may just be me looking for excuses to use the models i have

    They've posted a couple of options for if they don't fund in their latest update, basically the minis will be available at Simms point, either through a lower goal kickstarter or through preorder direct. I thought that they'd struggle with the goal considering other projects going on at the same time, which is a pity as they do good figures, and the rules are too shabby either. I also couldn't pledge this time around, due to other bills

    Shipping overseas from Australia is expensive, the absolute cheapest you can send a parcel for is $15 Australian

    Hmm... generally I'll paint anything, but some of the infamy figures i just don't think I'll do them justice
  13. My figures arrived, next step is to do inventory.. A brief look suggests most is ok, but someone did mess up the paints, 2 x Adon sets rather than one of each.. Email won't be sent until I've checked everything
  14. Got my notification in Australia last night, so should have them sometime this coming week (if lucky... Australian postal services have gone to the pits lately)

    It will be available retail, they're going with the packages to reduce chances of stuff ups in fulfillment. This is a kickstarter to fund the second wave of products/two player box, all models listed in the original rulebook are released iirc. I backed their previous kickstarter and apart from a few delays it was reasonably well run and i did get everything (there were a couple of mistakes that were fixed with an email). It also appears they've split the rulebook into three books rather than the original two, with the model stats pulled into the codex when they were originally in the main book. The models are nice, although some of the spears are a bit finer than i would like. My guess is the fairy archer is a planned stretch goal...
