    Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    I assume it is referring to the lawsuit over Palladium conversion rules in The Primal Order (pre-Hasbro WotC) that was settled out of court. Though Adkison (the author) has admitted in interviews that he had not really coordinated with other publishers about including components for their games, so some of them having a negative reaction wasn't entirely surprising.

    War in Christmas Village Sequels

    I don't need a replacement. I've dealt with *way* worse levels of plastic bendage before. :) As far as the die, I never turn away something to throw in my dice bag but overall I don't anticipate ever using it. I mean, it is just a generic white scatter die without any holiday elements, of which I already have plenty I don't use already (from various prior editions of 40k). If the die indicated winter weather, had three sides each of "naughty/nice", had random holiday monsters on each side, pictured different number of presents or zombie carolers, or even just had numbers 1-5 with a wreath for the 6, then it might have been more interesting (at least as a conversation piece).

    War in Christmas Village Sequels

    I am very pleased overall with what I got from the first project. The material feels solid and the detail on the figures is reasonably good (they are definitely less sharp then figures from say Zombicide, but close enough that once painted they should fit in fine with other games). The packaging for the core set of 6 figures was great, with a solid colorful box (protected with plastic guards for shipping) and internal molded tray. I had also added on an extra 6 snowmen and a second zombie reindeer. The extra snowmen were individually packaged in little boxes and fine. As to the reindeer, while the one in the box set had been perfect, the second one didn't fair as well: It was bubble wrapped and bent askew on the stand and with antlers sort of squished together. I think some other backers mentioned in the project comments a similar packaging issue on that figure. That being said, I am fairly confident I can fix the problem with some hot water based bending, so it is a small flaw in an otherwise fine delivery.
  4. Two new sets of crazy Christmas battle miniatures... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1184398968/war-in-christmas-village-sequels-tabletop-gaming-m/comments His previous project is in the process of shipping (got all of mine today).

    Stonehaven's Giants

    Got mine in the same box with the adventurers. Was really confused at first. :)

    RuneQuest Quickstarter Miniatures

    The photos of the greens leave something to be desired. It is very difficult to pick out the details.

    War in Christmas Village by Jackalope

    On facebook they are saying: "The first set is currently being manufactured and should ship by the end of September. After the Kickstarter orders are fulfilled for the backers, then the War in Christmas Village models will then be available for retail."
  8. Also makes me think of the Gorm from Kingdom Death.

    Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    My wife commented that I was acting like a kid at Christmas playing with the toys as I pulled them out of the box. That froghemoth is *huge*...

    Who doesn't want a golf-ball sized Eye of the Deep figure? It is going to terrify adventurers above or below the waves, and all we need is a burst of last minute backers to show and unlock the stretch goal so we aren't waiting till the *next* project to be able to get it.

    I've been very happy with his earlier Firbolg Skeleton, Peryton, and Massive Tentacle (which served me as the guardian of an extra-dimensional portal just a couple of weeks ago). So I'm really hoping this one reaches funding and drills into some stretch goals.

    Zombicide: Black Plague

    Ugh. I originally planned to grab the Smith one but ended up getting others instead.

    Dungeon Crawler The BEHEMOTH 2016 Kickstarter

    It makes me think more arctic or undead myself. I'd love to pledge for both but I think I'd side with basic version as I find the color differences between the skin / horns / plating to be more visually striking... Ugh decisions are hard. I really hope this critter passes the unlock threshold this time.

    Massive Darkness

    Considering how many of their exclusives are media character likenesses, would those even be possible in retail? Even if they could regularly win cases for parody or fair use I'd imagine lawyers from deeper pocket companies would have a field day harassing them for figures like "Xuxa" if it was an ongoing store release. If you exclude the infringy stuff that just wouldn't exist otherwise, things look less excessive.

    Massive Darkness

    I think the base pledge looks like an okay deal purely for the minis, and it should improve, so I'm backing for just that for the forseeable future. I'd only consider the elementals if they were sold as individuals since for two of them (fire and earth) I find the designs to be extremely meh, and I'm not dropping $40 just to get the two I would actually want. Personally I'd like to see more game accessory or terrain addons / stretch goals. For example I love the dice tower that came with Z:BP and the chests and pillars in MD are probably what put me over the top on deciding to back it.
