Mythic Battles: Pantheon 1.5

Recommended Posts

I am in the U.S. I didn’t go all in on the original. I got the core and 2 addons iirc. They came on time and I had no errors. I really like the minis, but haven’t played the game yet. 

 

I am not really feeling the new minis in this second ks. So won’t be backing. But will likely return for the Norse one next year. 

 

I liked the Conan minis, but the Mythic ones were very much better.

Might many of the problems outlined above have to do with the american shipping partner more than anything else? My own experience with fulfilment of this game is good, but I am in Norway, and so have had to do with the European Pilibert. 

 

I got the main shipment which sadly was missing the "rise of the titans" expansion and a single hellhound from the core box. So I sent a missing items claim to Philibert via the link provided. The forms to fill out were a bit draconic but I do understand why as it reduces the possibility of misunderstanings drastically.

 

Maybe a week or two went by, I got a "please confirm" email which I replied to, and a week or so after that I got the missing items and fulfilment was complete. So that is a plus in my book. Sorry to hear about others having problems here.

 

anyway, I am in it for the lovely, lovely minis, and cannot comment on the gameplay.

You definitely had a much better experience.  Unfortunately, the problem with the US fulfillment partner is that they couldn't get any additional stock from Monolith to actually fulfill the missing items.  Supposedly Monolith was pulling stock from Asia to help with this, but that was at least 3 months ago.  And now they have switched partners - in theory.  So I'm really not expecting to get any of my outstanding items until they complete the reprints for this new KS.

I'm also in the U.S. and had minimal problems with shipping. I got everything on time except for the RPG book, which Funagain said the post office lost. I also had one mini that was bent to an extreme that I was uncomfortable trying the hot water treatment with, and my core box was split at a cormer. I sent an e-mail to Funagain, and in about three weeks I had replacements for all three.

 

Gameplay wise I love it. There's so many different mechanics that play into effect, from the draft to the dice to card management. I haven't tried the scenarios yet, but skirmish is loads of fun, and I am not normally a skirmish player (I've never even tried it for Imperial Assault). I know it's just anecdotal, but when we demoed it at GenCon before the Kickstarter two of my friends who don't really buy boardgames liked it enough that they ended up backing. And one of the guys in my regular group said it's the most fun he's had with a game.

 

I don't know what effect Monolith having sole ownership will have, but I also really enjoy Conan, and I think a lot of people's complaints about that were way overblown. I'll definitely be back all in for Ragnarok, and unless they really screw something up, for Egypt as well. It's a bummer you've had such a lousy experience.

      If you pledge before November 14th 11:59 EST (17:59 Paris/CET, 16:59 London) you will get the Ezio the Assassin miniature for free (a $7 USD/ 7€ / 6 £ / $10 CAD value). The miniature will be available as an add-on after that and does not have any effect on the gameplay. 
      Cliquez ici pour une version française de cette page.
      Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a tabletop board game with miniatures aiming to capture the essence of Assassin's Creed® and turn it into a fun, fully cooperative game for 1 to 4 players. 
      It is played in a campaign spanning several months in 1509 in which you play a small team of Assassins in charge of developing the Headquarters of the Brotherhood of Assassins in Venice, after Ezio Auditore da Firenze has defeated Cesare Borgia and his allies, between the events of Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed®: Revelations.
      Players will use their Assassin's skills, equipment and their own sense of tactics to complete various objectives while evading detection from the Guards.
      The campaign will pit you against Templars, let you explore unknown events of the Brotherhood in Venice, and determine the fate of the Brotherhood in the famous City of Masks.
      Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a Triton Noir game under license by Ubisoft Entertainment.
      First time on Kickstarter ? Click here to see how it works.
      The game will be available in English or French. You will be able to choose your language in the pledge manager (after the Kickstarter campaign). In addition, we will offer free pdf files for German, Spanish and Italian languages with the rules, the campaign book and the cards' text.

      And one important thing - i do not advocate war and wish that such things are used only in games. Not in real life - be wise and humanity.

      Imagine a camera with no lens, no focus, no mirror and definitely no batteries that can create images like this.
      No need to imagine anymore, it is here. This will change the way you think about light, time and memories. We have created the ONDU pinhole camera series MK III to reignite your spark in photography, and most of all to enable you to create captivating images with light in the simplest way possible.  
       
       
      There's a lot of nice pictures on the project page. Enjoy them, then back the project. 
      I own the very limited edition 'Box' from the first KS(less than 20 were made), and the 6x17 OnduRama from the second KS, and both are very nice cameras. They did have issues that caused delays back then(with getting the machinery delivered and so on), but they were pretty good at keeping backers updated. But now they have all the machines in the workshop, so I expect there won't be any big delays this time
       
      Necessary disclaimer; they considered me so helpful in the comments section that they gave me a 135 pocket camera as a bonus. so yeah, I may not necessarily be completely impartial.

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.
