On the truck today. Gotta clear the table for a 1.5 session!

 

Kinda bummed there are no new box inserts for the upgrade packs.

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

      From the Kickstarter page:
      The Basius Max collection is a DOUBLE SIDED series of large solid purple resin pads, full of jaw-dropping hand-sculpted negatively recessed texture
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/984996675/basius-max?ref=friends_launched
       

      Basius stamps are one of the most talked about hobby tools that I've never tried, mainly because they never seem to make it to retail.  This time I'm not letting frugality get in the way of awesome bases!

      This is a second edition of a game that had some kickstarter success last year.  The project ends in about a week.  A solo game, for those long, lonely nights at sea.
       
      No miniatures, although the price tag is pleasantly miniature in comparison with the bloated behemoths rampaging their way across kickstarter at the moment, devouring available funds.  I know nothing about this game except that the box undeniably very excellent and the custom dice look neat-o.
       
      Cheers.

      About
      Welcome to the world of Nemesis! This new board game, designed by Adam Kwapiński, is the result of a collaboration between Awaken Realms (creators of This War of Mine: TBG, The Edge: Dawnfall and Lords of Hellas) and Rebel (creators of Drako, Dream Home and K2) .It's a 1-5 players semi-cooperative Sci-Fi horror where you and your friends try to survive while attempting to fulfill your secret objectives that may sometimes collide. It will also enable full co-op as well as solo play experience. 
      Nemesis offers one-of-a-kind gameplay, that you currently won't find anywhere else in the board game world. It has been in professional development for over three years, so it already plays very well, provides good balance and contains a multitude of interesting mechanics, as proven by the prototype reviews below. 

      If you like Sci-Fi survival settings and ships swarming with alien life forms, you will love it - and if that genre was never on your radar, this game is likely to change your mind! 
       
       *We will be lagging a little bit with the Stretch Goals presentation due to too high funding speed! 
       
       
       
       *Out of all reviews / movies two were paid: Cardboard Rhino (rules presentation / tutorial how to play that took a lot of time to make!) and Man vs Meeple (which is a preview showing the game in detail). All other videos were not paid.
