  1. Start painting. Don't worry about it. I repainted a horse miniature four times because I couldn't get an effect right. No problems. BTW, Pick up some Reaper Brown Liner when you get a chance. See the Bones threads about using Brown Liner right on the model before painting!
  2. Vast Boardgame Miniatures

    Miniatures from the Vast boardgame miniatures expansion. Last pic are mini's from the Vast : The Fearsome Foes expansion. For more info, see GeekDad's Vast Miniatures review!
  3. Chibi Capsule Magical Girls & Monsters

    Plenty of miniature companies have knock-offs, though they're obviously riskier through KS than retail. IM has done at least two of them. : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/classic-dungeon-adventurers-miniature-set-chibi-an https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/little-urban-achievers-set-of-14-in-spincast-resin?ref=profile_created
  4. C-EL DICE

    You can pick up glow-in-the-dark dice from online stores. They're not as fancy as these, but you'll get them now and there's less risk. The KS creator has experience with dice KS, though.
  5. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    Looks pretty good for Expedition to the Barrier Peaks. Doesn't Reaper have vegepygmies? I know they have a bulette and frogemoth that would fit in an EBP game...!
  6. With a web pre-order, KM is targeting KM customers, who are *much* more interested in modelling and painting, and *much* more willing to pay higher prices for a model. If you're going to offer a well-known IP for a boardgame, you'd better have a CMON-style game (like Monolith is doing with Batman) with huge quantities of pre-assembled non-brittle miniatures, or there will be nerdrage -- like BGG is showing. I'm not sure what the KM's HP licensed did and did not allow them to do, but I think they shouldn't even have considered the KS route, and stuck to how they released the Batman miniatures game. I think they thought KS would be a good idea, but changed their mind. Some of you noticed that the HP website switched to a placeholder banner for awhile, which probably indicated they were making a last-minute decision not to use KS. I also think this is for the best -- just imagine if they had a QA error (the likelihood increasing with the pressure of a ton of KS orders), and had to replace *hundreds* of miniatures. Through a web pre-order, they'll have fewer orders, but the project should be more manageable. Ooo... limited offer Voldemore for *only* forty bucks!!!
  7. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    Design and Development with mold infestation rules: https://cmon.com/news/zombicide-invader-design-and-development "The Mold is the organic substance the Xenos use to turn the mining station into their hive. It comes in the form of tokens covering the different Zones and has special properties. Mold affects lines of sight, walls, destroys any token it covers (missions can be lost!) and, most of all, may spawn Xenos." The aliens at least don't look zombified (so far), so can be used as generic space invaders in rubber suits. Plus, they dance. : http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2db8m0p&s=9#.WqEYfivp3v4
  8. Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

    MONSTER RUBBER SUIT DISCO INFERNO!!! Eh, if you like the miniatures (and this includes the celebrity knock-offs), might as well back this one as your Zombicide game. Otherwise, Green Horde is the better set. For modern day, it's Rue Morgue.
  9. So... it's a skirmish game, in which you pick up objectives and... stopped watching it there. The base game has seven resin miniatures. With a MSRP of $15 per miniature, if the pledge is $100, you're essentially getting a "free" game. Guess I'll wait for the KS to see what they have to offer...
  10. Heresylab - Scifi Heresy Girls - Miniature Set

    Rather than getting out the Canadian Mail pitchforks, you could just look up the creator, Christian Kirylo. Seems that he's the owner of Rolljordan Miniatures. in Pisa Italy. Italy, as of 2015, is a country that KS has opened to. Rolljordan Miniatures has been around since 2003. https://www.linkedin.com/in/christian-kirylo-90606116 http://www.rolljordan.com/ From the rolljordan.com site, you can find this project that was created by Christian Kirylo. : This leads to his "About the Creator" page: Christian Kirylo Leghorn, Italy I have been in the miniature world for over 30 years. I went from being a player to be a collector and modeller. In 1994 I have founded Rolljordan, one of the first commision painting studios, we had several GD winners in the team and several sculptors. In 2008 we started producing our first miniatures, mainly limited figs that ended in the production of a new line of miniatures to be used in Fantasy Football games, Blood Bowl, Elfball and similar games. If you then check his created projects, you will see four "Funding Cancelled" projects. You can also see generally positive comments about his customer service from the above project. He's also been posting on Dakka. Seems like Heresy Labs is a new company, though I didn't dig around to see why. : https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/748972.page You *can* ask the creator questions rather than speculate ad nauseum. I'll ask him to look at this thread.
  11. Zombicide: Green Horde

    Well, the Zombicide games typically have "homage" miniatures to various celebrities and characters. Since CMON hasn't tapped space yet, we're looking at all sorts of potential ripoff --- er, homage -- miniatures, such as Star Wars, Star Trek. Spaceballs, etc. Worked then, will work again.
  12. Zombicide: Green Horde

    Eh... depends if you like zombie orcs. BGG has some reviews. Sometimes you'll see a Zombicide base game on sale, though I haven't seen them recently, with CMON instituting a MAP policy (Minimum Advertised Pricing). If you can wait, Zombicide: Invader KS starts in a few weeks, so you can get your unnecessary KS exclusives.
  13. Interesting that they say running a webstore is a pain. IIRC, Monolith says the same for their games, and Steve Jackson Games was one of the earliest companies to try a webstore -- then closed it, though this was long before Warehouse 23. Petersen Games, Kingdom Death, and Dwarven Forge have webstores, but keep running out of stock! So this is the first company I've heard who essentially says they prefer *not* to keep product continuously in stock, which makes sense from an inventory cost perspective -- but is entirely different than what customers are used to, at least before KS. Monolith is doing this with their Batman boardgame (no plans to go retail or sell through a webstore). This business model doesn't exclude additional printings, but it looks like RM, for one, has no intention of doing such a thing. I'm guess it's not as much fun as creating new models, and/or the demand isn't enough for a second print run.
  14. Rappan Athik 5th ed!

    I'm too old school for these sort of books. Back when I was a wee little DM, I brought my books around in a backpack where they got all scuffed and damaged. None of these pristine coffee table books with fancy "color" art. And if I had the choice of an adventure book or PDF, I'd choose the PDF because I wouldn't have to lug around an entire year (or more) worth of gaming just for one lousy night. I could also take that PDF and write notes in it, or cut it apart as handouts. When we played RPG's, we'd never think of saying, "Oh! Lovely binding!" And we liked it that way!
  15. Dragon Lords: Grenadier miniatures

    Well, the Grenadier AD&D Dungeon Explorers was released in 1980, and I remember paying $20 for it, for 20 explorers. With inflation, $20 is now that same box would cost... *SIXTY DOLLARS* But that's still not as much as the "ABOUT $75" Grazzini is asking for their 20-figure Dungeon Explorers set. I assume the smaller print run and license (quote unquote) would cost more. In comparison, Impact Miniatures had the rights to the "Kev Adams / Tim Prow Oldhammer Goblin Miniatures" and sold them at... $35 for 31 resin goblin miniatures. So, yeah, Grazzin's still expensive, and you still have mini's to paint. You can wait for the next KS from a reputable creator who definitely has the rights for their old school miniatures.
