Got my game! I'm a little surprised that FedEx made the delivery estimate but they did make it. I've only managed to organize the gear cards in the tray so far. My laptop conked out last night. Just would not boot up. Lost a fair bit of the day getting that straightened out. Had to completely restore the boot drive from an old backup. So many bookmarks lost. *cry*

 

Good news is, the game came in looking beautiful. No dents or scratches. Just pound after pound of darkness and torment, ready to be assembled! 〴◣_◢〵

Hmm? I know mine hasn't arrived yet but I could have sworn the 1.5 upgrade was supposed to include the new box insert.

I remember Poots saying during the campaign that the inserts would make shipping way more expensive as they would be very difficult to ship outside of the core game box.. He never committed to anything though. It's ben more than a little tricky to get him to comment on it. Version 1 owners might end up having to look for third party inserts.

I'm actually pretty upset about it, as these things go (I don't get too upset over luxury stuff). Hopefully there is an option to get one for the cost of shipping for each upgrade pack, not sure how many want it. If there is too big or too small demand, it might not happen.

Either way, I've got most of the core box gear cards sleeved now....

Are you using the KD sleeves for all the cards or another brand?

 

I haven't bought sleeves yet, but should.

I thought he said he was going to make the new insert available for the expansion folks in a later wave.  the new tray didnt ship with Core its coming in a later wave, because it wouldn't have been done in time for shipping.  based on everything I've read in the Lantern's light FB group

Yeah, I thought the upgraded insert was coming later.  Like with the Gambler's box.  And people would have the option to not receive it because it will add significantly to shipping costs.

I'm using the KDM sleeves. They nice. I think I need more. This is not fast, but at least I only have to do it once. I've not been a fan of sleeves, but I do like how it's easier to look through a deck now.

 

Dark Mediator confirmed the new trays will be made available at some point for the cost of shipping to backers interested.

 

Sleeved up and ready to play! Looking forward to it, I should paint up some survivors and the monsters...I just don't want to hack such lovely models and I'm way out of practice.

Also, there is a resource for upgrading from 1.0 to 1.5, but it's on the KD site, which would fall under the commerce rules of this forum. And it's not linked from their site, it's only shareable as a naked link. So I can't provide the link here. Yay.

 

Try appending wp/upgrade-to-1-5-edition/ to the URL of Death.

So many sprues. Such tiny parts. *twitch twitch*

 

Other than clippers and superglue, what other tools should one have to put together the miniatures?

I wouldn't use superglue for these. It'll work, but thin plastic cement will give a much stronger hold. For assembly, the only other tool you might need is a hobby knife to trim a connection here or there. Vibrant Lantern has a nice write up on assembly tools here. I use a different version of everything they recommend with no issues. Tamiya Extra Thin Cement is probably the most popular.

Thanks. I will have to read up on the article. Since I'm hitting the store, I can pick up a few items that I am missing.

I'd use plastic cement rather than superglue, it 'melts' the plastic together and gives you a stronger bond, apply to a tile similar the use a toothpick to transfer to the model if you don't get one with a brush applicator

 

I'd also have a decent hobby knife

 

Edit: and I've been ninja-ed while distracted by the tv

      Chibis are super deformed, yet adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia.
      This is the EIGHTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with Chibi Capsule and Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Magical Girl chibi miniatures along with monsters for them to combat!
      The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures. And for some of them: The metal masters and resin production molds needed to create mass production of the miniatures.
      The Miniatures  
      ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint).   As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts.  Stretch Goal may also pay for metal mastering and rubber molds for mass production spincast resin models which will allow the project to offer some of the Magical Girls at lower costs to our backers.  The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible).  
      You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing below.

      About
      Over a year ago we started looking at beginning a High-Seas Adventure D&D campaign. However, we wanted to kick it up a notch (or five).
       
      So, we began looking for a great set of 3d Dungeon tiles to help bring the adventures to life for our players. We wanted something that was customizable, beautiful to look at, and was playable terrain. We also didn't want to spend $100 per ship. We realized that customizable didn’t really exist- we had to *choose* if we wanted beauty, or a slim amount of customization. Not to mention that the costs were extreme per ship.. We couldn’t put together a fleet of different ships if we wanted to without breaking the bank.
      Being an Indy designer- Chris decided to start working on something better, and finally- after seeing friends and family reactions to the initial prototype- ShipWorks began becoming a reality.
      Shipworks is modular. What this means is that from the hull to the masts and everywhere in between- you have the freedom to design and print the sailing ship that you want. Not just another generic template, but your minds eye brought to life.
      The ships seen table time ;-)  
      Details and customization is also inside.. ShipWorks is also fully usable terrain- to scale with miniatures common to some of the oldest and greatest table top roleplaying games. Your miniatures can traverse the rigging shrouds and masts, climb ladders and stairs, and explore above or even below decks.
       
      Captain checking the rigging as a swab runs up to the wheel  
      Even our yard-arms are functional terrain- 25mm miniatures bases slide in with ease, and stay there- even when turned upside down!
       
      Upside down can be right side up- depending on perspective.  
      With ShipWorks you get to choose:
      The length of your ship.
      Adjust the width of the ship.
      Your prows appearance, and even the figurehead that adorns it!
      Add more (or less) masts and their length! No messy shaping of wood dowels (unless you’re into that). Add a crows nest or viewing platform.
      A host of customizations to change your hull. From the number of weapons ports to fight off enemies, to creature comforts like windows for passenger cabins. Even sleek flat hull panels for showing off your more merchant elite!
      How you want your sails, from classic square to sharp looking lateen triangles.  If you change your mind- change them on the fly! 
      Your stern-castle and fore-castle (or have neither Captain!)

      Part of their limited edition Legacy Vault series like their previous Easter Troll KS..  Halloween minis and Red Riding Hood.. my wallet just ran and hid..
       
       
      About this project
       CAMPAIGN WILL START 24 OCTOBER 22:00 CET
        
      Starting from Easter 2017, we decided to begin creating miniatures dedicated to major holidays.
      These limited edition items will delight enthusiasts, collectors and artists alike, and the models may even end up on board games if the players can use their imagination well enough!
      Our concept is to bring out one or more dedicated models each year, at regular intervals, for a limited period of time and in limited quantities. After the regular sales period ends, models will enter our Legacy Vault, which will remain closed until the next event: once it's closed for good, the models inside will not be sold anymore.
      But what is the Legacy Vault and how does it work?
      Legacy Miniatures are fairly rare models that aren't normally available for purchase in our store. You can sometimes find them in on sale during special events and always for a very short time. The Legacy Vault is the place where Legacy Miniatures are kept after the sales period ends. Inside this Vault you will find all limited models made in past events. Be warned, the Vault may not reopen for future sales, so if you see a piece that you like and are on the fence, you'd better not risk lossing it for good, and grab it quickly. There's no guarantee it will be available again next year, or the one after that! A certificate will also be issued with each model, authenticating its number and release of issue.
      A Certificate will come with every limited model that you buy from this campaign.
      Models are in 32mm scale. However, bear in mind that this does not mean that they will measure 32 mm from head to toe, but rather that they will have the proportions of this scale.
      Models will be made in resin and/or metal, depending on the model. Each model will come with a generic base, but we are sure that the experts among you will be able to create a small diorama for these limited editions.

      If you want, you can add any number of these as Add-Ons to your pledge: just increase your PLEDGE TOTAL by the reward's corresponding amount, and you’re done. You will then confirm your choice with a post-campaign Pledge Manager system. Thank you!
