    Dungeons & Doggies Kickstarter (planned start date 18th July)

    Live! : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/russrmc/animal-adventures-tales-of-dungeons-and-doggies/description Material is PVC. Think the funding covers the cost for the molds? I've seen small-scale PVC miniatures projects before, such as a Christmas one.

    Overturn Rising Sands

    Peter Eagles: "The owner of the KS account also has a shell corporation registered in Canada named Edgecliffe Systems that was used to scam contractors here around Mississauga, Ontario. ... Luckily we only lost 30 days of work from Azhar ripping us off, but it was still tens of thousands, as we were contracted to build tech solutions for their family in Pakistan." Personally, I'd like to see more evidence, but, given everything else that's happened, I wouldn't be surprised if this were true. Remember that the Ice Age Miniatures KS was run by people who were trying to pitch reality shows, offered guitar books, and sold furniture...

    If you haven't been following BGG or the KS comments, here's an article summarizing the Overturn KS issues. : http://atgn.com.au/overturn-rising-sands-kickstarter-caught-plagiarising-still-track-funded/

    Dungeons & Doggies Kickstarter (planned start date 18th July)

    Got a reply! : "Hi and yes we will, the short answer is it's a partnership between two of us from the games industry as an indie project. Between us we have worked on and coordinated over 12 kickstarters under other labels."

    Dungeons & Doggies Kickstarter (planned start date 18th July)

    Found Mat Hart's twitter: https://twitter.com/C4RP3R I guess I have some concerns. First, is that Steamforged is already running a KS campaign for its Critical Role miniatures. Although Steamforged and PP are two different companies, Mat Hart looks to be part of both of them. I prefer for smaller companies to fulfill one project before undergoing another, though, if the two projects can be done simultaneously (eg. casting metal miniatures), then this is less of an issue. Second, is that Steamforged looks to have a negative reputation, as seen on the Critical Role thread. I've asked PP to include their industry experience on their KS page.

    Army Painter Strong Tone

    fwiw, If you're painting GH and want to paint the zombies green (with some brown), I have a tutorial on the Z Toxic Mall zombies you can use. I use the AP Green Ink wash, and brown Soft Tone Ink wash. No cans, so it will take longer. https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1270004/painting-tutorial-toxic-zombies-army-painter-stuff

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    > The battlefield set was the one I was least excited about and yet the one I am most happy with. The tents and camp items are things I had little of in my terrain collection. I am wondering if I should have picked up a second box! You can tell us after you finish painting the miniatures! Kinda bemusing that the KSE box doesn't even have an insert while retail does. OTOH, After painting, I'll store in planos as well, so doesn't actually matter. Thanks for the pics!!!

    Lost Kingdom Miniatures: Cuetzpal Empire

    Thanks, SamuraiJack! If you don't want to take the risk (or can't pledge for just the miniature you want), contact the creator and ask to be put on their newsletter, or pledge $1 and wait for retail. I see their dwarves from their IGG campaign on their webstore.

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    Too bad AP doesn't make a gold spray color! AP Leather Brown is great for wood. Prime, wash with Army Painter Quickshade Ink. Instamagically see the details. At 300-some pieces in the set (plus Secret Weapon Miniatures' Tablescapes and Forge Prints' AdventureScapes), I'm going to *need* a little help...

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Main problem with higher quality miniatures is that boardgamers won't pay for them, and, as an entirity, have more money than miniature enthusiasts. However, of course, that doesn't mean you can't buy high quality miniatures separately from their rulesets, or find a company that offers both. Slumbering Oblivion has both miniatures and an upcoming game, but the miniatures are $12+ apiece, far more than a boardgamer will pay. Call of Cthulhu RPG and Strange Aeons miniature skirmish games let you supply your own miniatures. But Cthulhu Wars with resin Fenris miniatures? I don't want to know how much that would cost!

    Overturn Rising Sands

    Julia on BGG posted: The spreadsheet notes no project management experience or blind playtesting by reviewers. As for translation, for the gamers, yes, you want a correct translation. For the Conan boardgame, several cards made sense in the original French, but, when translated to English, had ambiguities and needed a FAQ (and were not corrected in later versions, iirc). That means you need a translator who understands your game system *and* additional "blind" playtesting by speakers of the translated language to see if there are still any issues with the cards.

    Overturn Rising Sands

    Big Daddio on BGG did some googling and... "I was reviewing the project's KS page more thoroughly, and I don't know why but the shipping section sounded familiar. So I googled the first paragraph of it. It is word-for-word copied from another project (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1996974421/wander-the-cult-of-barnacle-bay)." https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2012493/sell-me

    I just sent them a message asking for more information about themselves. Click on the creator's name, scroll down, and you'll find their Contact Me button. Send them a message asking for their project management experience and/or link them to this thread!

    Legends of Signum

    Thanks to the Confrontation KS, SD now has a large sum of money that they can do *anything* with, KS TOS notwithstanding. A BGG'er did a back-of-the-envelope calculation, and speculated that Valley Games didn't settle with another party who gave them a personal loan until an amount spent about as much as they made on their KS campaign(s) was spent. As for losing money, I'm noticing that other miniature and boardgames with miniatures KS have recently been having this problem (eg. Godslayer, EXO, Terminator: Genesis), as well as Solomon Kane.

    MenhirGames: 28mm plastic set "Dark Age Outpost"

    Basically, all the molds (1-6) have been done, except for the bits and keep (two molds). "The factory in Argentina has finally replied. As expected their tone implies a "we did nothing wrong" attitude. Nevertheless negotiations are underway. Might have to skip finishing the last 2 molds in order to at least get you guys something... This is not final but it's looking like that, unless I wanted to send down ANOTHER $10,000 for the last 2" molds.... " "The Keep was a whole mold by it self and the "bits" were these parts: https://idyllwildgames.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/bits.jpg" https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nickryan/dark-age-outpost-28mm-terrain-and-miniature-set/posts/2214095

    Not sure why it happens, but scroll down to the bottom. There should be a dropdown for which language you use, and which currency to see in. Good luck!

    Beginner Tips: Look at All These Brushes

    The Craft has a Beginner's article: http://www.reapermini.com/TheCraft/32 As a lazy advanced tabletop painter, I recommend: * Cheap natural hair brushes: Walmart or wherever. Use these for washes, drybrushing, and basecoats when you can. Basically, if you're new and make mistakes with your brushcare, you might as well destroy these brushes first! I minimize wear on the hobby brushes by using the cheap ones. * Raphael 8404, Winsor and Newton Series 7, and Rosemary and Co. Round brush, watercolor. Not miniature brushes, which are for painting. The tip is more important than the size. Myself, I use 00 and 0 for highlights most often, but others recommend size 2 for basecoating, highlighting, etc. * Pink Soap: Michael's. Others recommend Master's Brush Soap, but Pink Soap is also a conditioner, and easier to use if you're lazy. Unscrew the cap, dip the brush into the liquid, let the brush dry. Done!
