    Impact! are always great to deal with, so if you like odd dice this one is for you
  2. Re-reading the first three of Anne Bishops The Others series in anticipation of the fourth I've just picked up in paperback In this world humans are at the bottom of the pile, potential prey to The Others who rule Thalasia and merely tolerate their existence for the things they can provide, but some humans have strange talents that may influence this balance. A cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut—a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg’s Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard—a business district operated by the Others. also in the series but unread yet
  3. Diet Cherry Coke, Diet Coke (both of which taste substantially different to their sugary versions) and coke zero (which is a lot closer but still not quite there), and the very sadly missed original version of Diet Irn Bru before they reformulated it from using saccharine so they could export it to you over in the USA oh and I guess fizzy water but that's about it as all the rest are ok initially but end up with a nasty after taste (weirdly including Cherry Coke Zero), this doesn't seem to be down to the specific sweetener used (Aspartame and Asulphame K in diet coke is fine, in other drinks I get an aftertaste, Saccarine in old diet Irn Bru was great but is vile in most other uses) and worst of all is Stevia which not only has an after taste that makes me feel sick, it has a nasty initial taste as well

    A Mino Corpse + Want a Free Matriarch's Table? . 10 Oct Get a Free Matriarch's Table! Time for something a little different! :D Alexei has sculpted this rather gruesome looking Matriarch's Table. Upon which the soon-to-be-revealed matriarch will prepare her victims ;) Also useful for chaos, orcs, undead and other evil races - actually, it is quite a functional table whatever race you are - well... as long as you plan on chopping up corpses :P And you can get it added FREE to your pledge :) At this midpoint in the campaign, it may be smart if we paid Google to place some adverts to spread the news of this awesome KS and all these great Minotaurs :D, or perhaps we could pay Facebook for placed adverts, or maybe pay some hobby sites to place some big banners on their pages? ... Or we can instead, use that advert-money to produce and cast another great model and give it away free, to the people who matter - You, our great backers! - for helping spread the word! If you would like a FREE Matriarch's table added to your pledge, just help us advertise the campaign by posting a link to the KS ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1207385459/twisting-catacombs-the-minotaur-horde ) and spreading the word in a blog, relevant online forum topic or online community group where other people would like to hear about some great Minotaurs :D Then Post a Comment below, with a Link to where you shared it. From us all; thank you again for your great support! So, it Seems They are Not Invincible! It takes a lot of killing, but you can actually down a Minotaur :P Coming up on the stretch goals in another useful sculpt of a minotaur corpse :D Again a very raw Work in Progress sculpt but it should give you an idea of the direction we are going in ;) Great for dioramas or marking dead minotaurs on battlefields or in RPGs (these guy's corpses are going to provide some cover! ;) ) This one may be a stretch goal for a few goals in the future, as we have some more alive character minotaurs which we will perhaps want to slip in before :P Until tomorrow, Long live the Herd! !,,!, (Since this is a suitable online forum, and we're talking about the project here I guess this should count for us all, but why not spread the word elsewhere too, for the glory of the Herd)

    more 'Tau in this not Minor project

    Now the waiting begins, On the plus side they've prepared well and have an ex-CMON chap involved so will have good links to the factory and while they hit some stretch goals it still seems managable, on the minus side they're new and the factory is getting much less out of them than for a big CMON game so i'll bet on delays in the normal 6 month range and an eventual game that's a lot of fun which is the important (to me) bit
  7. those are the ones that got a gencon pre-release and were also offered on the soda pop store for pre-order at that time, they're in the KS so people who 'want it all' were able to get them (and no doubt to make the initial target lower, they'd been sculpted already as well as adding extra sales)

    5 hours to go, contents of the base box now are unofficially we've unlocked this streatch below so half the otter grunts are now an alternate, female sculpt and we're working towards a similar target for the rabbit archer

    Female minotaur is READY! Posted by Alexei Popovici (Sculptor) It was a while since our last update on sculpts. We are happy to present you guys final version of the first female minotaur from our army! So now you can see what's the difference between WIP's (work in progress) images what you will get in the end :) I would like to mention here as sculptor, those WIP's that we will reveal soon are mostly the direction in what we are going with the sculpt, like really basic vision. During polishing process, pose and details of equipment may change , so please don't treat WIP's as final product :) Our next target is SHAMAN, stay tuned, concept will be revealed soon! :) As usual we are happy to hear your vision and propositions :) Raise the banners for the horde!
  10. Waves hello from over in the UK
  11. Got the second part of one of my longest outstanding kickstarters today Alien Assimilation from Trollforged Miniatures, it's been a long hard road for them but a major thumbs up for following through and fulfilling even though the KS money was long gone and it would probably have been easier just to give up and leave backers in the lurch.

    Talia, Bart, and Chompy are UNLOCKED!!! And, our official poll results! You guys are amazing! With only a few days to go, we unlocked Talia for all pledges, and Chompy and Bart for the High Tide Expansion! :D Next up after her will be more item cards to the base game, AND it will unlock Eileen the Crow Assassin Add-On! 140k Stretch Goal Poll Results: After checking out the results of the official poll from our fan group poll, we had a clear and decisive winner. You guys voted, and decided that we should add a new boss to the game! Say hello to your new kickstarter exclusive alternative-boss...Pandulu!!! He comes with his own AI deck and will bring with him a new scenario! He will be added to all pledges. :D We also have an awesome video done by Lance over at Learn to Play! We worked with him on a scenario to help show off more aspects of our game, and he does an excellent job of going into detail some of the more finite aspects of Wander:"The Cult of Barnacle Bay"! You can check it out here: Until next time, #keepcalmandwanderon!

    If they're getting them done locally (which seems to be the case) there may not be much choice in Argentina as to who they can get to do the tooling, especially since the probably got a price break for doing multiple moulds with the same factory and switching to somewhere else would also mean gambling that the results would be ok

    A bit of welcome news from the comments, they were asked by a Canadian backer whether they would also be missing the blinds, dice etc that all the already shipped US pledges were Soda Pop Miniatures 7-time creator - NO, your product will arrive with all components, as it was caught at factory and repacked for everyone NOT in the US. The Lockbox was KS special packaging, and packed to hold ALL your rewards. so that's a relief as it sounds like the ROW will not need to fill in missing item requests (well unless you want to squabble with them about the retail box which I don't think is worth the trouble, especially as it's got a glued in cellophane window in it which inevitably will fail pretty quickly leaving you with a box with a hole in it)

    from facebook I will send one of them (random) with every pledge over £50. 2 If we make it up to 5K and 3 in the unlikely event of 10K. :--)
