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
